Not illustrated. 1921 edition. Excerpt: ... not to be had inside of six months, so almost worthless ones of oriental make were bought. At the same time a man had to be employed to keep these drawing tools in repair, they were so poorly made. All workshop tools for the first class were furnished by the college, but the new class was required to pay for many of the tools used. Wooden planes, squares, marking gages, etc., were made by a carpenter hired by the college. All this caused a delay in getting down to work in the shop for several months. In addition to this burden, the class could be divided into only two divisions, one of fiO and one of 59. No assistant was allowed and the work had to be carried on through interpreters who had had no experience in manual-arts work. Two interpreters were furnished for this class, one for each division. The first class was supplied with three interpreters a part of the time, each taking a different subject, in which he had to bo taught before he could take the work intelligently. This in it self was no small burden. Fig. 15 shows one of the divisions of the second class at shopwork, illustrating the crowded conditions. This situation was not without its good features, as it gave several months in which to introduce the subject of projection and mechanical drawing, before actual work began in the shop. The students were thus enabled to make many drawings of their shop problems before beginning actual work on them in the shop. Previously ii had been impossible to persuade the college authorities of the value of such a course.
