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.
RECREATION This building was erected during the 1964-65 term as a memorial
BU"-DWG to Mr. William W. Walker. It houses a student lounge, sandwich
bar, student post office, and game rooms. It is attractively furn-
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. In addition, the military
building has an excellent indoor rifle range, equipped for complete safety in rifle
firing. Pictures of this building will be found on Page Fifty-Nine.
CLASSROOM AND During the summer of 1959 a classroom and laboratory build-
LABORATORY was erected. This building provides most modern facilities
for our Mathematics, Modern Language, and Science in-
struction and laboratories. The building is beautifully equipped.
D. MEAD Built during 1966, D. Mead johnson Hall houses our entire grad-
JOHNSON uating class, together with two faculty families. This dormitory is
HAH' of excellent design and is well furnished.

"A chain is no stronger than its weakest link." Likewise a school is no
better than its government. Scholarship in the faculty and excellence of
buildings and equipment are wasted in schools lacking in governmental con-
trol. In such schools, pupils spend their energies on things other than the
real purposes of the school. Most parents have witnessed the failure of some
school under such conditions.
Successful school government consists of sensible regulations carried out
with firmness and fairness by teachers of personality. Much is heard these
days about resentment of restraints by teen-age boys. This is probably true
in schools of varying policies and in home life where one boy compares his
restrictions with the liberties allowed to his friends by their parents. In Ten-
nessee Military Institute government is characterized by uniformity, firmness,
and fairness. Consequently, boys here recognize the fairness of the officers in
charge of government, and therefore accept in fine spirit the requirements
made of them under the regulations of the school.
Any school can impose prohibitory regulations, but not every school can
succeed in having its prohibitions accepted in such spirit and good humor by
its pupils as to accomplish the real purposes of school government. The suc-
cess of Tennessee Military Institute along this line has served as the founda-
tion on which to build high standards of scholastic attainment and to main-
tain uplifting and inspiring influences on boys enrolled.
IDI-E-MIND Somebody has said, in language more expressive than elegant,
DANGER5 that "the idle mind is the devil's workshop." This is probably
true to a greater or less degree in all stages of life, but is certainly
true of the period of boyhood. The busy boy never causes trouble. On
the other hand, when there are idle hours of the day or night during which
the boy is left to his own inventions and devices, the live youngster will invent
and devise and also execute. Unfortunately, many of his schemes for whiling
away the hours are mischievous and dangerous.
KEEP THE Hence, our first effort toward orderliness and good government
BUY BUSY in Tennessee Military Institute is directed to keeping the boy busy.
We undertake to prevent the "idle-hour" offenses against school
government by removing the idle hours. The ounce of -prevention here is
worth the pound of cure. This must not be understood to mean that life in
T. M. I. is one continual grind of drill or study, but it does mean that there
is such definite provision for the use of every hour in the boy's daily schedule
that he does not have long periods to himself in which to brood, or become
discontented and unhappy, or to plan and carry out trouble-producing schemes.
