One of the outstanding features of our day is the appalling cost of unpreparedness for efficient occupational life. To be sure, opportunities for free industrial education exist in many places but the scope of untouched possibilities is great. With this point of view, the writer makes a survey of the eight years of industrial class activities in the Washington County center. The purpose of the study is to give in brief a background of the Smith-Hughes program in Washington County and the opportunity for future development. It is hoped that the historical background of the Smith-Hughes courses, studied in the light of later practices and theory in industrial education will prove both interesting and profitable to the writer. The study covers the work of one teacher, the writer, through a period of eight years. The personnel of the class consists of pupils from the ages of sixteen to forty years of age. During the period of eight years, two hundred and forty-nine pupils have enrolled in one or more units of the Smith-Hughes Trades courses.
