oncerning we gateway . . . Parents and boys considering the selecting of a school are interested in loca- tion and accessibility, quality of buildings and equipment, educational recog- nition, and various other important considerations. However, tlae most impor- tant consideration, the one that means the most in the life of the boy of this year and of the man he is to be a decade later, is the character and personality of the men who, as teachers, will influence the forming of his character. The contacts made in classroom and chapel, dormitory room and playground, between teach- ers and boys in the intimate life of the boarding school, pass on the "power" of the school into the life of the boy, arousing ambition, supplying objectives, inspiring needed decisions. Therefore, parents and boys should seek just as much information as pos- sible concerning the officers and teachers of the schools under consideration. At first thought this may seem a hard problem. It is not. It is easy to make contact in person, or by letter or telephone, with several other parents who have already had boys in a school. Specific questions concerning the character of teachers, their reputation for fair dealing, etc., will reveal the personalities of the men composing the faculty of a particular school. Tennessee Military In- stitute invites just this sort of searching inquiry concerning its teachers. During the next two, three, or four years, some one teacher will become the outstanding influence in the life of the boy, just as a generation ago another teacher had the same sort of influence in the life of every successful father who may read these paragraphs. Talk with our old boys will reveal that one teacher here has been the great influence in the life of one boy, another in the life of another. Believing this, we have maintained through the years a faculty of mature men who have demonstrated success in teaching boys. Since 1919, our teacher changes have averaged less than 20W per year. When we find it advisable to employ a new teacher, we always arrange for a personal interview so that we may estimate his probable influence on boys as well as his ability to teach a cer- tain subject. Our administrative officers all teach classes and thus maintain a close touch with the boys in school. Our teachers are men who definitely chose teaching as a profession as contrasted with many people who have merely drifted into teach- ing as a job. They are teaching in a boys' school because they love boys and are interested in their progress. T They work together with a fine spirit of teamwork and their effectiveness is weakened by no petty jealousies. Their influences on boys attending T. M. I. are desirable influences.

Leave for emergencies, such as deaths, weddings, and serious illness in the family, are not charged against boys normal leave credit. In such cases, notifi- cation should come directly to the school and the boy notified by the school authorities. The Spring Vacation will begin at 10:00 A.M. on Thursday, March 9, and will end at 5:00 P.M. on Sunday, March 19. During all recent years all stu- dents have used this leave to visit home or the homes of near relatives. Under no conditions will permission be granted for a boy to spend this vacation period in the home of another student. SPENDING MONEY In the deposits required at the beginning of each quarter is 355.00 per week for Cash Allowance. This seems to be adequate to meet a boy's needs for pocket money. It should be understood that each boy has an account with the school com- mfissary at which he can secure necessary supplies to meet his school needs. This account includes books, paper, school supplies, toilet articles, and the like. D. MEAD JOHNSON DORMITORY Page Twenty-.tix N .11
