 The above list of equipment needed for manual train-
 ing in the mechanic arts lines, was prepared by Mr.
 F. W. Kendall, Director of Mechanic Arts in the Stout
 Manual Training School, Menomonie, Wis. The prices
 are based upon estimates supplied by hardware dealers
 at the time of equipping the Stout Manual Training
 School. This school is one of the best equipped in the
 United States, both as to quantity and quality of mate-
 rial. The list is presented as showing the expense for
 first class equipment for a manual training school, and
 not as indicating what is necessary for the equipment of
 a single room for wood work, adapted to the needs of
elementary school.
