SUPERIOR Since it is the work of every school to try to cultivate mental INTEI-I-EC'I'UAI- development, no single school may claim patent rights on all TRAINING the excellencies of method. This we do not do. It is a fact, however, that there is a wide difference between the results sought and the methods used in ,the schools of the country. Tennessee Mili- tary Institute excels most of the schools of its type in its insistence on high academic standards and its provisions by which cadets are enabled to measure up to these higher requirements. The first, and perhaps the most important, of these provisions for the pupils' benefit is the high degree of efficiency and capablity of the teaching staff. Every teacher in the Faculty has been thoroughly trained for the particular line of work which he is teaching in T. M. I. This means much in arousing the boy to his best efforts. A second provision in the interest of better academic work is the regular study period. There is a definite preparation period which the cadet must observe preceding the recitation periods. Then there are our special privilege lists under which certain coveted privileges are open only to those attaining the requisite class standing. Almost any boy will put in his best efforts to place his name on the Privilege List, a copy of which is mailed to all patrons monthly. In addition to these provisions and in- centives for higher scholarship standing, there are the firm, but considerate, re- quirements of each teacher and extra-hour special sessions to help up and spur on those who are behind the class average or are careless in their preparations. We believe, therefore, that Tennessee Military Institute can justly claim su- perior results in stimulating mental growth. CHARACTER But more important than physical growth and more significant BUILDING than intellectual training is the character of the boy-that which will later be the character of the man. Athletic proportions of body and superior attainments intellectually do not, by themselves, procure respect and confidence. From this it follows that character building is the first and highest work of the school. Noble impulses are present in every boy's soul. Inspiring the higher motives and inculcating correct conceptions on the fundamentals of truth and honesty go far toward character building. We strive earnestly and continuously to get our boys to recognize their own better selves and fix permanently in their lives the foundations of sound and clean manhood. The key word to our method of dealing with boys is fmnleness. We are open and straightforward in our treatment of the boy, and in nine cases out of ten we are able to secure a like attitude on his part. What we have to say to our boys in a body or as individuals is expressed in simple, direct language. We use no bluff or bluster. The average boy despises sham and hypocrisy, and is quick to detect any symptoms of such in officer or teacher. Honesty and truth are part of the atmosphere and spirit of the institution, and the new boy soon catches this spirit. We believe, therefore, that T. M. I. is contributing in a very genuine and positive way to the building of trustworthy and honorable characters in the pupils enrolled with us. Page Twenty

Kuifhngd MAIN BUILDING The main building houses under one roof administrative offices, classrooms, assembly hall, rooms for 200 boarding cadets, apartments for six married teachers and dining room and kitchen reached by a barracks porch. All cadet rooms open on concrete and steel porches, thus eliminating fire danger and avoiding corridor problems at one time. A new kitchen, equipped for cafeteria service was added in the summer of 1967. AUDITORIUM The auditorium-gymnasium, built in the summer of 1954, is a great GYMNASWM addition to our campus. This building is 107' long and 80, Wide with bleachers on each side and with a projecting rostrum along the South wall, so as to make it possible to use the building as an auditorium, seat- ing a thousand people.

It is attractively furn- ished throughout. INFIRMARY The school infirmary, designed to have residential appearance, is equipped with eighteen hospital beds and separate wards for isolating any case of a contagious character that may develop. LIBRARY The library building, erected in 1947, is most attractive in appear- ance, both outside and inside. It is furnished with golden oak tables and chairs with convenient shelving for books and magazines. MILITARY The military building, erected in the summer of 1948, provides BU"-DWG offices for the military staff, three classrooms, and storage facil- ities for military property and weapons.
