Wow, they must be big practitioners of the realism school of teaching because the girl in that bathing class looks pretty damn naked.
Trailer School TEACHES DRIVING and HOUSEKEEPING
OFFERING a comprehensive two-weeks course, what is believed to be the world’s first school for trailer owners has just been established on the outskirts of New York City. Staffed by a faculty of experts, the unique school provides instruction in all phases of trailer operation, construction, and maintenance.
The course begins in an indoor classroom where present and prospective trailer owners hear lectures, watch demonstrations, and receive their first lessons in driving with model automobiles and trailers that are maneuvered by hand on a table-top driving area. The curriculum progresses to the study of trailer chassis, lighting systems, brakes, springs, hitches, and other construction details.
As part of the course, visits are made to an actual trailer factory, where units are observed in all stages of construction and assembly. Under the guidance of experts, practical instruction in straightaway driving, backing, leveling, parking, and hitching is given on the open road.
A domestic-science teacher gives lectures on all phases of trailer housekeeping from cooking a banquet on a diminutive stove to the problems of refrigeration, hygiene, menus, and even taking a bath in cramped quarters. Valuable tips are given on planning routes, selecting camps, and choosing space-saving accessories.
