Why study industrial arts?

The 1950s' must have been a wonderful time, with handy public service videos like this one to help kids make decisions about what sort of post-secondary education they should take. I actually saw this as part of a Mystery Science Theater 3000 VHS video that Aaron Peck and I rented from Silver Screen Video back when I was in high school. If only I'd taken its advice. Damn my liberal arts education.
