HERBERT BERRY Kansas State College T H O M A S C A S TEEL East Tennessee State University Steve Thomas and Robert Tomlinson admire their newly-completed sketch for mechanical drawing class. JA M E S T. R H O D EN Clemson University TECHNICAL 8TUDENT9 CREATE Mr. Casteel and G a le Noel confer about the dimensions of a blueprint. In the Industrial Arts classes, the students were allowed and encouraged to create, as nearly as they could, perfection in a tangible form, whether in a drawing or in a constructed object. The items made in these classes were not designed just to keep the students occupied, but were useful articles such as lamps and bookends, or drawings scaled for actual models to be built by the class. The Industrial Arts classes were one of the areas at Highland Springs which employed the principle of direct vocational training. In the mechanical drawing classes, the basic elements of drafting and geometric design were taught, and in the shop classes, the students worked in direct contact with the materials and techniques they would perhaps employ in their future jobs. These classes readied the boys they taught for their future jobs or study by preparing them for the problems and skills they will meet in the future.

ELECTRICITY CLASS DEVISES SWITCHBOARD G R A D Y D A N IE L K N O TT North Carolina State University The Electricity Department, a new addition to the vocational curriculum at Highland Springs, opened its program with an impressive lab'and workroom. Intricate equipment and detailed devices formed the practical materials by which students learned a useful and important trade. The students, who were required to spend three continuous hours in the fclass, were taught not only through lectures but also through work with electrical equipment. Numerous projects were constructed, including a heating unit and a telephone switchboard made by the students themselves. The students learned to wire according ^ o -professional standards by wiring five booths which served as a five-room house. Field trips were taken to places in Richmond and Norfolk that were of special interest to the class, such as the VEPCO plant and the C&P Telephone Company. The administration and the department itself spent much time in establishing and strengthening the electricity program for the succeeding years. Richard Murphy watches the voltmeter as he operates one of the switchboards used in the electricity class. Mr. Knott carefully explains the use of an oscilloscope to his newly organized electricty class. 43
