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. 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- 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. 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.

0Uel"l'll'l'LQl'lf "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.
