At the beginning of Summer School, all pupils are divided into four groups,
known as the Blues, Greens, Orange, and Reds, and colored jerseys are issued to
them. Play is organized between teams representing these groups and appro-
priate recognition is given to the champions at the end of the session. During
the first part of each week, all play volleyball and softball. During the last
part of each week, tournaments in golf, tennis, swimming, horse-shoes, ping-pong,
badminton, croquet, and basketball are conducted.
On week-ends, interesting activities are arranged. These include parties and
dances at school or in Sweetwater. Trips away from school have included swim-
ming and cook-outs in the Cherokee National Forest and on Watts Bar Lake.
Other features have been a trip through the National Atomic Energy Labora-
tories at Oak Ridge, bowling, dinner, and baseball in Knoxville and Chatta-
nooga, and a trip to Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
The cost of the summer school program is found on Page Seventy-Seven.

Certain privileges in T. M. I., much desired by the cadets and not harm-
ful in themselves, are granted on a basis of academic standing and deport-
ment record. These lists are prepared at the end of each month and posted,
and also a copy is mailed to each patron of the school.
FIRST PRIVILEGE LIST: The First Privilege List includes all cadets whose
average for the month is 90 per cent or above and who have not fallen
below 80 per cent in any subject and have not received more than 5 de-
merits for the month.
SECOND PRIVILEGE LIST: The Second Privilege List carries the names of
all cadets whose lowest grade is not below 80 per cent, but average below
90 per cent, and who have not received more than 5 demerits for the month.
The privileges allowed under each of these lists are announced at the
opening of school.
In addition to the Privilege Lists referred to above, the school has inaugu-
rated a Merit System under which by good scholastic work, good conduct, and
leadership boys earn merits which, in turn, grants them furlough privileges.
This is explained by letter to all patrons at the opening of school.
CLASS LEADERSHIP MEDALS: Gold "T's" are awarded as medals to the
cadets maintaining the highest general average for the year in each of the
five classification groups.
MILITARY EFFICIENCY MEDALS: Medals are awarded to the cadet com-
missioned officer, non-commissioned officer, and private who are adjudged
to be the most efficient in their respective grades in the performance of
their military duties throughout the year.
Reports indicating the character of academic work and deportment record
are issued every four weeks. Our grading system is very clear and the Parent
is able to keep in touch with the progress of the boy by noting these reports
carefully. A grade of 70 per cent is required as the passing mark. Our teachers
grade very closely each day's work and there is no padding of grades. An aver-
age grade in T. M. I. is between 80 and 85 per cent.
In addition to grades by subjects, the report shows the general average
in all subjects, the number of boys in each class, and the rank of each boy in
that class. This policy has been followed for many years. The day in each
month when class rankings are read out is looked forward to with eager
