Conditions of Admission.

Candidates for admission to the first-year class must be at least fourteen years of age, and each must present a certificate of good moral character signed by a former teacher.

They must also pass a good examination on the following subjects:
1.Arithmetic; including the fundamental rules; common and decimal fractions; the tables of weights, measures, and their use. Candidates will be examined orally in mental arithmetic, including fractions and the multiplication table up to twenty.
2.Common School Geography.
3.Spelling and Penmanship.
4.The writing of good English.

Candidates for the second-year class must be fifteen years of age. All that is specified above will be required of them, and, in addition, the studies of the first year.

Similar requirements apply to those desiring to enter the third-year class.

Vacancies may be filled at any time, provided the applicants are prepared to enter existing classes.

The regular examinations for admission are held in June and September of each year. See Calendar on page 3. The next school year will open September 10.

The Course of Instruction

Covers three years, and the school time of the pupils is about equally divided between mental and manual page 136 exercises. The daily session begins at 9 A. M., and closes at 3 or 4 P. M., ample allowance being made for lunch. One hour per day is given to drawing, and two hours to shop-work.

The course of study embraces five lines three intellectual and two manual—as follows:—

First—A course of pure Mathematics, Deluding Arithmetic. Algebra, Geometry, and Plane Trigonometry.

Second—A course in Science and Applied Mathematics, including Physical Geography, Natural Philosophy. Chemistry, Mechanics, Mensuration, and Book-keeping.

Third—A course in Language and Literature, including English Grammar, Spelling, Composition, Literature, History, and the elements of Political Science and Economy. Latin and French will be introduced as electives with English if desired.

Fourth A course in Penmanship, Free-Hand and Mechanical Drawing.

Fifth—A course of Tool instruction, including Carpentry, Wood-Turning, Blacksmithing, and Bench and Machine Work in Iron.

The course in Drawing embraces three general divisions:
1.Free-Hand Drawing, designed to educate the sense of form and proportion; to teach the eye to observe accurately, and to train the hand to rapidly delineate the forms either of existing objects or of ideals in the mind.
2.Mechanical Drawing, including the use of instruments; Geometric constructions; the arrangement page 137 of projections, elevations, plans and sections; also the various methods of producing-shades and shadows with pen or brush.
3.Technical Drawing or Draughting, illustrating conventional colors and signs; systems of Architectural or Shop Drawings; and at the same time familiarizing the pupil with the proportions and details of various classes of machines and structures.

The arrangement of studies and shop-work by years is substantially as follows:

Students hare no option or election as to particular studies; each must conform to the course as laid down, and take every branch in its order.

Project for Graduation.

Before receiving a diploma of the school, each student must execute a project satisfactory to the faculty of the school. The project consists of the actual construction of a machine. The finished machine must be accompanied by a full set of the working drawings according to which the machine is made. If it is not feasible to construct the patterns for castings of such machine, proper directions for their construction must accompany the drawings.

Description of the Shops and Tools.

There are in all five large shops. A third-story room 50 feet by 40 feet is so fitted up that it can be used as a carpenter shop, or as a wood-turning shop. A second-story room, 50×40 feet, is fitted up as a carpenter shop. Another second-story room, 40×40 feet, is furnished with lathes and benches for wood-turning and pattern-making.

page 139

A ground-floor room 40×40 feet serves as a forging shop, being furnished with twenty forges, anvils, &c.

The machine shop and engine room is on the first floor, 50×40 feet. It contains eleven lathes, two drills, a planer, a shaper, and a full set of benches and vises.

As a rule, each shop has uniform accommodations for a class of twenty pupils Three such classes or divisions can be taught daily in each. Four divisions could be taught by extending the range of a school day to eight, hours. Bach pupil has one of the uniform sets of hand, edge-tools for his exclusive use, kept in a locked drawer. For the care and safety of these tools he is held responsible.

Details of Shop Instruction.

The shop instruction is given similarly to laboratory lectures. The instructor at the bench, machine, forge, or anvil, executes in the presence of the whole class the day's lesson, giving all needed instructions, and at times using the blackboard. When necessary the pupils make notes and sketches (working drawings), and questions are asked and answered? that all obscurities may be removed. The class then proceeds to the execution of the task, leaving the instructor to give additional help to such as need it. At a specified time that lesson ceases, the work is brought in, commented on and marked. It is not necessary that, all the work assigned should be finished; the essential thing is that it should be well begun and carried on with reasonable speed and accuracy.

The Object of the School.

The Manual Training School is not an asylum for dull or lazy boys. It clearly recognizes the preeminent value and necessity of intellectual development and discipline. In presenting some novel features in its course of instruction, the managers do not assume that in other schools there is too much intellectual and moral training, but that there is too little manual training for ordinary American boys. This school exacts close and thoughtful study with books as well as with tools. It proposes, by lengthening the usual school day a full hour, and by abridging somewhat the number of daily recitations, to find time for drawing and tool-work, and thus to secure a more liberal intellectual and physical development—a more symmetrical education.

All the shop-work is disciplinary; special trades are not taught, nor are articles manufactured for sale.

General Information.

Tuition Fees.—The school year consists of two terms of twenty weeks each. The fees are by the term, and are payable in advance. The rates for the present will be as follows:—

First-year class, per term $30 00
Second-year 40 00
Third-year 50 00

Scholarships—The founders of the school desire that the advantages of this school shall be within the reach of boys from every class in the community. A limited number of free scholarships will page 141 therefore be filled annually. It is desirable that they should in general be given as rewards of merit to promising boys in straitened circumstances. Persons desiring to found scholarships are referred to Article V. of the Ordinance establishing this school.

Diplomas.—Pupils completing the course will be presented with appropriate diplomas. Occasionally medals will be given as evidence of special excellence in certain branches.


Students, whether on scholarships or not, furnish their own books, drawing instruments and boards; their own aprons and overalls; and their own pocket tools. The School furnishes shop-tools and materials. Losses and breakages are charged to pupils when they are the result of carelessness. Books and drawing materials will not cost on the average more than $15 per year. Board and lodging for those living out of the city can be obtained for from $16 to $25 per month.

General Regulations.

Pupils whose influence is found to be morally bad will be dismissed; and those who fail to make good progress in their work, after reasonable trial are required to withdraw.

Absences and irregularities of all kinds are reported to parents.

Regular reports are made of the standing of pupils in each branch of work and study.

page 142

Boys who can produce records of good character and scholarship, but whose circumstances render it practically impossible for them to pay the tuition fees of the school, are invited to write the Director, or to get some friend of known high character and standing to write for them. In all such cases the occupation of the father, if living, should be given.

All communications should be sent to the Director,

C. M. Woodward.

Manual Training School, St. Louis.

Note—Persons writing for a fuller statement of the method and apparatus of the school, with illustrations of buildings and rooms should send to the Director for the "Special Catalogue," of the Manual Training School.
