Agriculture and Industrial Arts

Each quarter, several hours each day will be alloted for practical, useful physical work and training. Areas of work/study will include: agriculture (including conducting and interpreting soil tests); industrial arts (including an introduction to appliance repair, heating and air conditioning, refrigeration, mechanics, welding and the various building trades, including electrical and plumbing); Especially for the ladies there will be practical training in sewing, soap-making, and food preservation.


No credit hours are assigned to this class, because it will be a little less formal. The subjects covered in this course will be done largely in a practical, hands-on way, doing things that are useful and need to be done. The student will be engaged in one or more of the activities mentioned under this heading, about 3 hours a day.
