     School opens September 22, 1920, and continues to June 2, 1921. All legal holidays are observed.


     THE SOUTHERN INDUSTRIAL INSTITUTE is located at Camp Hill, Alabama, on the Central of Georgia Railway, one hundred miles southeast of Birmingham, in a healthful portion of the State.
     Camp Hill is 761 feet above sea level. The school is situated just out of the village, on a beautiful plantation of four hundred acres.


     We help deserving young men and women to help themselves. The school aims to do just two things-provide a course of study and provide a way for any boy or girl to pursue such course. This will give the students a self-reliance that nothing else will. This is not a school of technology, nor is it a school of liberal arts. It is a school that undertakes to make it possible for earnest. industrious youth to win an education and to learn to lift instead of to lean. The outlay in money is slight. The most that is necessary is the willing heart and obedient hand. Too many-far too many-of our youth, for want of means, are denied even the rudiments of an English education. Without giving them money directly, but by the skilful use of the industrial system, this school seeks at all times to help our youth of limited means.


- ROSS HALL, erected in 1900, is used for academic work and also contains the auditorium and the Principal's office.
- ALABAMA HALL, erected in 1903, is used as a dormitory for boys.
- GOODWILL HALL, erected in 1908, is used as a girls' dormitory and contains the library of eight thousand volumes.
- DINING HALL, built in 1912, will seat 150 students.
- DRUMMOND PRINT SHOP, built in 1914.
- ALLEN MEMORIAL HOUSE, a Senior house for girls, under construction.
- Several small buildings on the grounds are used as dormitories for boys.


     Money paid for term bills will not be refunded. All bills are payable one half at entrance and the remainder in the middle of the year. Checks or money should be brought by the student when entering.

     BOY'S INDUSTRIAL SCHOLARSHIP (a), $90 for a term of thirty-six weeks, four days each week in school and work two days a week.

     BOY'S INDUSTRIAL SCHOLARSHIP (b), $110 for a term of thirty-six weeks, five days each week in school and work one day a week.

     GIRL'S INDUSTRIAL SCHOLARSHIP, $110 for five days schooling for thirty-six weeks. Girls work three hours each day and one-half day Saturdays.

     ACADEMIC TUITION, $20 for thirty-six weeks. Board may be had in town. Boarding houses must be approved by the Principal, and all students are subject to the same rules as those living in dormitories.

     FREE SCHOLARSHIPS- A limited number of free scholarships are given each year to deserving students who have spend at least one year in school, bearing their own expenses. All students receiving free scholarships must pay an entrance fee of $10. All students receiving free scholarships are expected to work at the school during vacation if their services are needed. Adequate pay is given.


     GIRLS-Each girl, before entering, should send for a special list of requirements. All girls will be required to wear uniforms. They should have blue serge sailor suits when they arrive, or they must expect to provide themselves with uniforms immediately upon arrival at the school. Parents are urged not to provide other dresses for their daughters, but to invest the money in uniforms. The wearing of unnecessary jewelry is prohibited. No girl may leave the buildings or grounds except with a competent chaperon.

     BOYS-All boys will wear uniforms, and no boy should buy a fall or winter suit. Uniforms are of navy blue and cost from $12 to $25. No boy may retain firearms or large knife or leave the grounds without permission.

     ROOMS-All rooms are inspected daily.

     SUNDAY SCHOOL- Each student attends Sunday school or church at least once each Sunday.

     All candidates must be at least sixteen years of age. No entrance examinations are required. Each student must bring credentials signed by two reputable persons. Students must furnish for their rooms, sheets, pillow-cases, quilts, towels and soap. A special list of articles needed will be furnished upon request.
     All students who enter the school agree to submit to its discipline. No student received who has not been formally entered before his arrival.


     There are several prizes offered each year. For the best work done in English there is a prize of $5, given by Miss Dorothy Drake. Two prizes are offered in Oratory-one of $5 by Mrs. Frances L. Saunders and one of $2.50 by a friend of the school. Mr. R. J. Haight gives three prizes-$5, $2.50 and $l-for work in Domestic Science, and Miss Abby C. Clapp gives a prize of $5 for the best work in Astronomy. Mr. L. C. Tinker gives two prizes in Agriculture-$10 and $5.

     The Course here outlined is for the High School grade. Beginning and Elementary classes are to be found in all the lower grades. No formal entrance examinations are held.
     In addition to the studies on the preceding page, a course in Piano is provided for those students who desire it. A fee of $2.50 a month will be charged all students taking music.
     The School offers two Courses-a Major and a Minor. The Minor Course constitutes the work of the first two years.
     The Major Course comprises the full four years' work and prepares for college. A few of the subjects are elective.

THE SOUTHERN INDUSTRIAL INSTITUTE is wholly free from sectarian influence and control. In the election of trustees and teachers and in determining admission to the ranks of its pupils, questions of religious creed are neither asked nor considered; but those who control the policy and management of this institution aim to act in that Christian charity which comes from strong faith in God and unfeigned love for men. This spirit, in their judgment, forms the best basis among men of different shades of religious faith for harmonious action in the management of the internal affairs of this Institute and is most likely to promote the great object in view, which is to provide a sound and practical education for the youth of Alabama and other Southern States.
