Program Gets Attention
his college*
According to Holmes, results in
the Industrial Consolidated School
have been phenomenal. Holmes
said personal problems among the
students have declined more than
50 percent since the program was
instituted. Jim Clark, principal,
said that only three discipline cases
severe enough to warrant princi
pal’s action have been encountered
in three years.
Percentage of students attend
ing college has jumped from 17
percent to a high of 55 percent.
Scholastic grades have increased
one letter grade during the time
the program has operated and ab
senteeism and dropouts have been
greatly reduced, Clark said.
The school board at Industrial
Consolidated High School has been
so favorably impressed by the
change in the school that it author
ized Holmes and Clark to travel
anywhere in Texas at Industrial
Consolidated high school’s expense
to tell their counseling story.
Walton says the secret of the
program rests in the use of lay
people, cooperation of parents, and
in training every teacher in simple
fundamentals of counseling. The
stress of modern-day society is too
great for teenagers without more
help than they get, Walton believes.
One and one-third million children
came to the attention of police in
1954 and the percentage is rapidly
increasing, he pointed out in com
menting on the need for effective

A high school guidance and coun
seling program developed under
the direction of E. V. Walton, head
of the Agricultural Education De
partment, is attracting nationwide
interest, according to C. D. Hol
mes, superintendent of the Indus
trial Consolidated High School at
Vanderbilt, where the program is
in operation.
Holmes recently received a let
ter from the editor of This Week
magazine expressing* interest in
the program. Several schools
throughout Texas are planning to
develop guidance programs under
the Walton method.
Z. Montemayor, president of
Mindanao Agricultural College in
the Phillippine Islands, made a
trip from Pennsylvania to Indus
trial Consolidated High Schol to
study the guidance and counseling
program and immediately took
steps to institute the Walton guid
