INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING IN THE HIGH SCHOOL ADVISER: Frank, I see by your program card that you have chosen commercial geography and music as your lecture subjects next term I thought you said that you wanted to be an architect or mechanical en- gineer. You have done well in science and advanced mechanical drawing, haven't you, this past term? .... FRANK: Well, Mr. Smith, I liked science and mechanical drawing and wanted to continue with them. I liked the machine-design course and the physics course. They appeal to me. But I didn't get along very well in Eng- lish and French. This will be a hard term if I play on the baseball team. I'd like to drop those and take—oh, say—commercial geography and music, just so that I could graduate. ADVISER: I remember that you didn't do very well in English and French, but how would commercial geography and music help you in your require- ments for architecture and engineering? Besides, you are going to need Eng- lish and French to meet your college requirements.—From Guidance in the Public Schools.
