LAGRANGE, Ga„ February 25.—
The cotton textile industry today con
tributed a new idea to the field of
vocational education in the form of
a mill-owned school here where work
ers may obtain the equivalent of a.
college education in textile engineer
Founded by the Callaway Mills for
the benefit of their 6.000 employes,
the school has no matriculation fee
and the courses of instruction range
from business office to spindle room
There are 20 subjects from which
the students may learn the textile
Tests Frequent.
Required hours of class work vary
from 90 hours for minor Jobs to 140
hours for posts requiring skilled work
ers. Examinations are a regular
thing, and qualifications for a certifi
cate are similar to the requirements
expected of a candidate for a degree
at any institution of higher learning.
A faculty of 32, composed of execu
tives selected from various depart
ments of the mills, conduct night and
day classes for the convenience of
workers employed on the day and aft
ernoon shifts.

"If a man on a job is thoroughly
acquainted with his task and enjoys
his work, he is a much happier and
a better employe and citizen," Fuller
E. Callaway, jr., treasurer of the mills,
said in explaining the idea behind the
"It is our purpose not to give a
general smattering of what goes on
in a cotton mill, but to give the men
and women a specific knowledge of
every phase of a textile plant and
equip them so that when they finish
the school they will be able to hold
down any job in the mill."
Callaway said enrollment was vol
untary and that the school's 300 avail
able places have been spoken for.
