GENERAL INFORMATION 

The School 

WILLIAMSPORT DICKINSON SEMINARY is a high 
grade boarding school for both sexes. It offers two years 
of college and four years of preparatory work, also 
courses in music, art, expression, home economics, and business. 

Location 

It is located at Williamsport, Pennsylvania, "The Queen 
City of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River," on the 
famed Susquehanna Trail, midway between Buffalo, New York, 
and Washington, D. C. Statistics prove it to be the healthiest 
city in the State of Pennsylvania, and it is reported to be the 
third healthiest city in the United States. Williamsport is fa- 
mous for its picturesque scenery, its beautiful homes, and the 
culture and kindness of its people. The Pennsylvania, the Read- 
ing, and the New York Central Railroads, with their fast trains, 
put it within two hours' reach of Harrisburg, four and a half 
hours of Philadelphna, and seven hours of Pittsburgh. 

History 

Williamsport Dickinson Seminary was founded in 1848 by a 
group of men of Williamsport under the leadership of Rev. 
Benjamin H. Crever, who, hearing that the old Williamsport 
Academy was about to be discontinued, proposed to accept the 
school and conduct it as a Methodist educational institution. 
Their offer was accepted and, completely reorganized, with a new 
president and faculty, it opened September, 1848, as Dickinson 
Seminary, under the patronage of the old Baltimore Conference. 
It was acquired in 1869 and is still owned by the Preachers' Aid 
Society of the Central Pennsylvania Conference of the Meth- 
odist Episcopal Church, and is regularly chartered under the 
laws of the State of Pennsylvania. It is not a money-making 
institution. All of its earnings as well as the generous gifts of 
its friends have been spent for maintenance and improvements. 
During a large part of its history its curriculum covered the 
work now included in a high school course and at the same time 
included about two years of college work. By its charter it is 
empowered to grant degrees, which authority was for a time 
exercised. In 1912 it began to confine itself to the college pre- 

10 



paratory field and has continued in that field up to the present 
time. After considering both the opportunity and the need of 
doing more advanced work, the Board of Directors at their meet- 
ing in October, 1928, voted to continue the college preparatory 
and general academic work, and to add two years of college 
work, paralleling the freshman and sophomore years in a liberal 
arts college. These junior college courses are outlined herein 
and may be found on later pages of this catalogue. 



Grounds and Buildings 

The campus is located near the center of the City on a slight 
eminence, which causes the Seminary to be affectionately re- 
ferred to as "the school upon the hilltop." Stately elms, maples, 
and trees of other variety add beauty and dignity to the campus 
and form an attractive setting for the imposing buildings. To 
the south and across the Susquehanna, within twenty minutes' 
walk, is the beautiful White Deer Range of the Allegheny Moun- 
tains, aflfording a view of perennial charm. To the north are 
the Grampian Hills. In fact Williamsport, "beautiful for loca- 
tion," is seldom surpassed or equaled in its wealth of beautiful 
scenery. 

On the campus stand the buildings conveniently grouped. 
They are of brick and steel construction, heated by steam from 
a central plant, lighted by electricity and supplied throughout with 
hot and cold water and all modern conveniences. The rooms 
are large, airy and well lighted. 

The Main Building is an imposing structure of brick and oc- 
cupies the central part of the campus. In this building are the 
administrative offices, dining room, library, chapel, school parlor, 
class rooms, and dormitories. There are hardwood floors 
throughout. 

Bradley Hall is the Fine Arts Building. It was erected in 
1895 of red brick and is modem in construction. The splendid 
music studios and practice rooms, the art studios, and the ac- 
commodations for the Home Economics Department are here. 
The dormitory rooms in this building are large and afford splen- 
did quarters for the girls in the Junior College Department. 

The Service Building is also of red pressed brick and is a 
modem fireproof building. The basement and the first floor 
house the heating plant and the laundry. The second and third 
floors contain dormitories and will be used for the boys of the 
Junior College Department.

The Bowling Alley 



The Maids' Building is located directly back of the Main 
Building and provides quarters for the maids employed by the 
school. On the first floor is the school bakery. 

The New Gymnasium 

The new gymnasium, which was dedicated November 8, 1924, 
meets the needs for more adequate equipment in the department 
of Physical Education which was felt for a long time. 

The building itself is 110 ft. by 88 ft. 6 in., of semi-fireproof 
construction, and of beautiful design. The exterior is of red 
brick corresponding with Bradley Hall and the Service Building, 
with limestone and granite trimmings. A feature of the exterior 
architecture is a balcony over the entrance portico. 

Entrance to the new building is through a pretentious vesti- 
bule flanked on either side with stairs of ornamental iron and 
marble. Leading from the entrance hall is a door to a retiring 
room for women, provided with ample toilet facilities. To the 
left is a room for the Physical Director and an examination 
room, from which point of vantage the entire gymnasium is 
under the personal supervision of the Physical Director at all 
times. 

The basement includes a modern swimming pool 20x60 ft., 
equipped with a sterilization and filtration plant, that will ne- 
cessitate changing the water only four times a year. The pool 
is constructed of tile and is amply lighted, with large sash to the 
open air making a sunlit pool at nearly all hours of the day. 

There are also two bowling alleys of latest design with sepa- 
rate private rooms and showers for both home and visiting teams. 
Provision for private dressing rooms and shower rooms for girls 
and women is made. 

The gymnasium floor proper is 90x65 ft. with a stage at the 
easterly end so that the main floor can readily be converted into 
an auditorium if need be, suitable for recitals and even more 
pretentious productions. In every way the building is a center 
of athletic, social and cultural activities. 

Aim 

The purpose of Dickinson Seminary is to prepare students 
for their life work in a homelike religious atmosphere at a mini- 
mum cost. In its Preparatory Department it fits its students for 
any college or technical school. For those who do not plan to 
go to college it offers exceptionally strong courses leading to 

13 



appropriate diplomas. In the Junior College Department it aims 
to give two years of college work under the most favorable 
conditions, especially appealing to those who graduate from high 
school at an early age and who would like to take the first two 
years of college work under conditions affording more intimate 
personal contacts with the teachers and assuring personal interest 
and helpful guidance. It offers a large amount of college work 
in the form of electives to those whose college career will likely 
be confined to two years. 

A Home School 

The Seminary recognizes the fact that it is more than a 
school. It accepts responsibility for the home life of its students 
as well. Every effort is put forth to make the Seminary as home 
like as possible. Here lasting friendships are formed, and 
memories are stored up to which they may, in future years, look 
back with affection and pride. 

Cultural Influences 

The Seminary aims to develop in its students an easy fa- 
miliarity with the best social forms and customs. Intercourse 
with young people of both sexes in the dining hall, at receptions 
and other social functions, together with frequent talks by in- 
structors, do much in this way for both girls and boys. Persons 
of prominence are brought to the school for talks and lectures, 
and excellent talent provides for recreation and entertainment. 
Two courses of entertainment are provided by community or- 
ganizations which bring the best artistic talent to the city. 
Students whose grades justify it are permitted and urged to take 
advantage of these opportunities. 

Religious Influences 

The Seminary is a religious school. It is not sectarian. At 
least four religious denominations are represented on its Board 
of Directors. Every student is encouraged to be loyal to the 
church of his parents. The atmosphere of the school is posi- 
tively religious. Every effort is made to induce students to enter 
upon the Christian life and be faithful thereto. 

A systematic study of the Bible is required of all students. 
Regular attendance is required at the daily chapel service. Stu- 
dents attend the Sunday morning service at one of the churches 
in the city. On Sunday evening all attend a Vesper Service 

14 



held in the school chapel. There is a weekly Prayer Service 
conducted by the President, a member of the faculty, or a visit- 
ing speaker. There are chapters of Young Men's and Young 
Women's Christian Associations that do active work in promoting 
the religious life of the school. 

Government 

It is aimed to develop in each student a sense of loyalty to 
the Seminary and a sense of fitness in his actions through the 
appeals of ideals and examples. Offenses are dealt with by the 
withdrawal of certain student privileges ; while good work in class 
room and good conduct in school life are rewarded by special 
privileges granted only upon the attainment of certain levels of 
scholarship and deportment. 

It is understood that students entering Dickinson Seminary 
do so with the intention of making an honest effort to do satis- 
factory work in every respect. Where a student is not able to 
conform to the school program, the parents or guardians are 
asked to withdraw the student from the school. 

Coeducation 

Coeducation, properly administered, is both highly satisfactory 
and desirable. In a coeducational school where boys and girls 
associate under proper conditions and supervision their influences 
are mutually helpful. Boys become more refined and careful of 
their appearance and conduct. Girls learn to appreciate the 
sterling qualities of purposeful boys rather than the more flashy 
attractions of the fop when they are permitted to associate and 
compete with them in the activities of school life. 

The apartments of the girls are entirely separate from those 
of the boys. Proper supervision of the girls and boys is main- 
tained at all times. 

Faculty 

The Faculty is composed of thoroughly trained, carefully se- 
lected Christian men and women. The two ideals they hold be- 
fore themselves are scholarship and character. They live with 
the students, room on the same halls, eat at the same tables, and 
strive in every way to win their confidence and friendship. The 
Seminary aims to make the home and working conditions of the 
members of the faculty so pleasant they will be encouraged to 
do their very best work and look forward to years of pleasant 
and helpful service in the school. This policy has resulted in 
building up a faculty of which we are justly proud. 

15 



Athletics and Physical Training (Boys) 

The object of this department is to promote the general 
health and the physical and intellectual efficiency of the students. 
Persistent effort is made to interest everybody in sortie form of 
indoor and outdoor sports. All forms of sane and healthful 
exercise are encouraged, but excesses and extravagances are 
discouraged. The athletic teams are carefully selected and syste- 
matically trained. They are sent into a game to win if they can, 
but more emphasis is placed upon playing the game fair and 
straight than upon winning. The Seminary is represented each 
year in inter-scholastic contests by football, basketball, baseball, 
track and tennis teams. An excellent athletic field offers every 
facility for football, baseball, tennis, and other out-door sports. 

Athletics and Physical Training (Girls) 

The aim of this work is the care and the development of the 
body by means of appropriate exercises. The results to be 
achieved are better health, good poise, and the overcoming of 
such physical defects as will yield to corrective exercises. A 
portion of the time each week is given to physical culture with 
the purpose that the body may become free and more graceful. 
The gymnastic exercises consist largely of floor work and include 
arm and leg exercises, dumbbell, wand and Indian club work. 
All the girls are given training in basketball according to girls' 
rules. 

Library 

A reference library is part of the equipment of the Seminary 
and every effort is made to train the student in an intelligent 
use of the same. 

The James V. Brown Library is within two squares of the 
Seminary. Its large collection of books as well as its courses of 
lectures and entertainments are freely open to all students of 
the Seminary.

THE JUNIOR COLLEGE 

The Board of Directors of Williamsport Dickinson Seminary 
at their fall meeting in October, 1928, decided to establish a Junior 
College Department with a desire to enlarge the scope of service 
and influence of the Seminary. This department offers the Fresh- 
man and Sophomore years of college work. It is not intended to 
interfere in any way with the excellent College Preparatory De- 
partment which the school has maintained from the beginning. 
The junior college work is organized on a separate basis. The 
college students will room in separate dormitories and meet in 
separate classes; the faculty will meet all of the standard re- 
quirements for college teachers, and the work will in all ways 
be of a collegiate grade. 

The following considerations were taken into account in add- 
ing junior college work: 

In recent years the enrollment in institutions of higher learn- 
ing in Pennsylvania has increased rapidly, far above the average 
for the United States and without a proportionate increase in 
college facilities. While a great many new high schools have 
been built and most communities have increased their high school 
facilities, few colleges have been established in the last fifty 
years. The lack in expansion and building equipment has re- 
sulted in overcrowding and limiting enrollment. 

Students are graduating from high schools at an early age. 
Crowding into the larger universities while so immature results 
in a large freshman mortality which every one, particularly the 
parents and young people themselves, would like to avoid. At- 
tending a preparatory school after graduating from high school 
has its advantages, but the scholastic work in that case is largely 
review while those who attend a Junior College get all the ad- 
vantages of a boarding school and their scholastic work is of a 
collegiate grade. 

The Junior College offers many special advantages. Smaller 
classes, more frequent contacts with the professors, and larger 
opportunity for self-expression are some of the most obvious 
advantages. Probably its chief justification is in helping every 
student to find himself before he enters into the larger life and 
freedom of the university. 

The Seminary has been including advanced courses in its cur- 
riculum, but because it was not organized on a college basis stu- 
dents taking this work were not given advanced standing in 

17 



higher institutions. A careful survey of the Seminary's facilities 
and faculty has revealed the fact that it is a very easy matter to 
organize on a college basis. At least two new members of college 
grade will be added to the faculty, and Hbrary and laboratory 
equipment will be increased, and a full time librarian added to 
the staff. The standards for junior colleges set up by the Asso- 
ciation of Colleges and Preparatory Schools of the Middle States 
and Maryland will be met from the beginning with the opening 
of school September, 1929, and additional courses and members 
of the faculty will be added as the enrollment in and development 
of the junior college program warrants. 

The Seminary's enviable record made through eighty years 
of educational effort in which the highest standards of scholar- 
ship and character have been maintained is the best guarantee 
that this new department will be maintained on the same high 
level, embodying the best of the old and the new in educational 
theory and practice. 

Requirements for Admission 

Fifteen units of high school work are required for admission 

to the junior college department. Graduates of accredited high 

schools are accepted on certificate. Students wishing to pursue 

a liberal arts course with a view toward completing the remaining 

years elsewhere should be able to present credentials for the 

following : 

English 3 units* 

Algebra Ij^ units 

Plane Geometry 1 unit 

Science 1 unit 

Foreign Language 2 units 

History 1 unit 

Electives 5 J^ imits 

Total 15 units 

Where the student wishes to pursue only special studies or 
courses the above mentioned units are not applicable in detail. 

In addition to the above scholastic requirements every candi- 
date for admission must present a certificate of good moral char- 
acter from some responsible person, a recommendation from his 
high school principal ; and upon admission he must present a 
certificate of vaccination from his physician. 

* A unit of work represents a year's study in any subject in a secondary 
school consisting of approximately a quarter of a full year's work. Four 
years of English, however, are considered as only three units. 

18 



Requirements for Graduation 
The Seminary does not award degrees. Upon completion of 
64 semester hours of work the junior college diploma will be 
awarded. 

Required Work for the Freshman Year 

English 6 hours 

Mathematics or Science 6 or 8 hours 

History 6 hours 

Foreign Language 6 hours 

Orientation 2 hours 

Electives 6 hours 

Total 32 or 34 hours 

Required Work for the Sophomore Year 

English 6 hours 

Foreign Language 6 hours 

Electives 18 or 20 hours 

Total 30 or 32 hours 

Students who desire two years' work of college grade and 
who do not for the present plan to attend a senior college later, 
may choose their work in both the Freshman and Sophomore 
years from a wide range of electives including Bible, Religious 
Education, Economics, Business Administration, Sociology, 
Psychology, Public Speaking, and Home Economics. The special 
departments in Music and Art offer unusual facilities to the 
students planning only two years of college work. 

Only the work of the Freshman year will be given during 
the school year 1929-30. Thereafter both Freshman and Sopho- 
more years of work will be offered. 

COURSES OF INSTRUCTION 
Bible 

The Life of Christ as recorded in the Synoptic Gospels, with 
a detailed study of the Gospel according to Luke. Two hours, 
first semester. 

The Founding of the Christian Church. A detailed study of 
The Acts. Two hours, second semester. 

Biology 

A beginning course in the underlying principles of biology 
involving a study of the main types of plants and animals from 
the standpoint of structure, functions, and environment. The 
laboratory work will consist of a study of the simplest organisms, 
passing gradually to those plants and animals of increasing com-

German 

The courses in German are designed with two main objec- 
tives : ( 1 ) To equip the student with a working knowledge of 
the language necessary to an understanding of German culture ; 
and (2) to impart a knowledge of the development of German 
literature and to foster appreciation of its masterpieces. 

Because of its literary importance and because of its value 
in research, German is rapidly regaining its former position 
among foreign languages. Students who anticipate taking up 

21 



graduate study or who expect to pursue the study of medicine 
or of chemistry should have a reading knowledge of the language. 
At least two years of college German is necessary for this 
purpose. 

Beginning German. This course is devoted to the study of 
grammar and composition and to the reading of simple prose. 
Oral use of the language is gradually introduced. 

Throughout the Year. Three hours credit each semester. 

Intermediate German. This course is intended to give the 
student a good reading knowledge of the language. Special at- 
tention is given to grammar and composition. Besides Schiller's 
Wilhelm Tell a considerable amount of modern prose is read. 

Throughout the Year. Three hours credit each semester. 

Greek 

The Greek course in the Junior College consists of two years 
of advanced work, the first in classical, and the second in New 
Testament Greek. 

The first year Homer's Iliad, Books I-IV, are read. There 
is a study of the poetic form with much drill in scansion. The 
study of constructions, prose composition, and sight translations 
are continued. The work of this year is made more interesting 
because of a study of Greek mythology which forms so large a 
part of the Iliad. In addition to Homer, there are selections from 
Herodotus, and the Lyric Poets. 

Three hours. Throughout the year. 

The course in New Testament Greek is of especial interest 
to prospective students of theology. Much of the New Testa- 
ment is read, with more detailed work in the Gospels of John 
and Mark. Attention is given to the peculiarities of New Testa- 
ment vocabulary, forms, and constructions. After this course the 
student is able to appreciate the advantage of reading in the

The Diploma of the Seminary will be awarded to the student 
who completes any one of the following courses : College Pre- 
paratory, General Academic, History and Literature, Regular 
Commercial, Piano, Voice, Violin, Expression, Art and Home 
Economics. 

Students completing a course in one of the special depart- 
ments but without the necessary academic requirements will be 
awarded a certificate instead of a diploma. 

The College Preparatory course offered by the Seminary 
covers the needs of those preparing for college and technical 
school. 

The minimum requirement for graduation in the College 
Preparatory course consists of fifteen college entrance units, 
three of which must be in English, and two and one-half of 
which must be in Mathematics. American History, one unit of 
Science, and not less than two each of two Foreign Languages 
or four of one Foreign Language must be included in the fif- 
teen units. 

The General Academic course is not intended to prepare for 
college. The minimum requirement for graduation in this course 
consists of sixteen and one-half units, four of which must be in 
English. 

The minimum requirement for graduation in the History and 
Literature course consists of twelve units. Only those students 
who are graduating at the same time in Music, Art, or Expres- 
sion are eligible to graduate in this course. 

A student in any course must have to his credit one year of 
Bible and one year of Physical Training for each year spent in 
Dickinson Seminary. 

A unit represents one year of work, thirty-six weeks, five 
forty-five-minute periods per week, except in the case of English 
and First and Second-year Algebra, in which cases only three- 
fourths of one unit is allowed for one year of work. 

Wherever elective subjects are listed in any course, it is the 
aim of the faculty to schedule a student in the way which will 

27 



best train him or her for the particular college course or vocation 
to be pursued.

COURSES OF INSTRUCTION 

Bible 

The study of the Bible is required once a week of all stu- 
dents. The Bible is studied historically and not theologically. 
The material presented in the first four courses covers the re- 
quirements of one unit for college entrance. 

I. Old Testament. The history of the Old Testament is 
studied carefully from the beginning to the division of the King- 
dom. Selected passages are memorized. Maps are required. 
Topics are assigned for investigation. Active use is made of the 
Bible itself. 

II. Old Testament. A study of Hebrew history from the 
division of the PCingdom to the birth of Christ. Maps. Memory- 
selections. Some time is given to a study of the prophets and 
their writings, and to the Wisdom Literature of the Old Testa- 
ment. 

III. The Life of Christ. A careful study of the life and- 
times of Christ with memorizing of important passages. Maps. 
Discussions. Original work. Emphasis upon His contributions 
to modern life. 

IV. New Testament History and Literature. The life of 
St. Paul and the beginning of the Church. A careful study is 
made of Paul's missionary journeys and his writings. A survey 
of the literature of the Bible with suitable memory selections. 

Classical Languages 

The practical value of a study of the classics has often been 
questioned, but nothing has ever been found to take their place. 
The classics are still retained in the best courses of the best 
schools, and are pre-eminently adapted to bring the student to 
an acquaintance with the sources of inspiration of all the litera- 
ture of succeeding periods. 

Greek 
First Year 
First Greek Book, White. The first year is devoted to a 
thorough drill of forms, and study of constructions. Stress is 
placed upon translation of Greek sentences, including short para- 
graphs, giving, in simplified form, the connected story of the 

30 



Anabasis. In this way a practical vocabulary is learned for 
second year work. There is also the writing of English sen- 
tences in Greek, and a study of English derivatives. 

Second Year 

The second year offers, first, a review of grammar, and then 
an advanced and more detailed study of the fundamentals of the 
language, together with work in prose composition. The work 
in translation includes Xenophon's Anabasis, Books I-IV, and 
sight translations from Book V. Goodwin's Greek Grammar is 
used as a reference book. 

Latin 

First Year: Careful study of simple Latin forms and con- 
structions. Sight and prepared translation of connected Latin 
sentences. Prose composition. Vocabulary building. Study of 
simple English derivatives. Frequent reviews to fix the work. 

Second Year: Thorough and systematic review of First Year 
forms and constructions. Continued study of more difficult in- 
flections and principles of syntax. The readings are confined to 
easy stories, Roman history and biographies, the first semester, 
and to selections from Caesar, the second semester. Study of 
English derivatives continued. Prose composition. 

Third Year: Review of grammar of the First and Second 
Years. The readings are limited mainly to the select orations 
and letters of Cicero. Attention is directed to the style, per- 
sonality, and influence of the author, and such phases of Roman 
life are studied as will lead to a better understanding of the 
Latin read. Prose composition. 

Fourth Year: Review of grammar of the previous years. 
The readings are confined to selections from Ovid and Vergil's 
Aeneid. Scansion is emphasized. Assigned readings in mytho- 
logy. Continued study of such phases of Roman life as will 
help the student better to understand the text read. 

English 

The purpose of the work in English is to develop, as far as 
possible, in every student, the ability to speak and write cor- 
rectly. Representative classics of England and America are 
studied, along with the history of the literatures of the two 
countries. The schedule of English classics for college entrance 
requirements is followed throughout the four years. An at- 
tempt is constantly made to instill a "feeling for language," and 

31 



to inculcate some conception of style, and toward the end of 
the course interpretative criticism on the part of the students 
themselves is striven for. 

The four books of the "Literature and Life" series, by 
Greenlaw and others, are used throughout the course — one each 
year. Besides the classics from "Literature and Life" listed be- 
low for intensive study during the four years, all the introduc- 
tions to the various chapters in the "Literature and Life" books, 
as well as practically all of the stories, essays, poems, etc., 
therein, are carefully read. The chapter introductions to Books 
II and IV comprise brief, but comprehensive, histories of Ameri- 
can and English Literatures respectively, and are stressed. 

Two pieces of written work are required of each student 
each week. Oral themes are required also from time to time. 
Each student, in addition to his regular class work, must read, 
and report on, four books each year. These books are selected 
with the approval, or on the recommendation, of the teacher. 

First Year 

Textbooks: New Practical English for High Schools, First 
Course, Lewis and Hosic : Practical High School Speller, Chew ; 
Literature and Life, Book I, Greenlaw-Elson-Keck.

History 

Students are required to fill in outline maps, to take notes of 
class work and to prepare reports on subjects assigned for indi- 
vidual investigation. Collateral reading of not less than five hun- 
dred pages is required. Current topics are emphasized in con- 
nection with the history courses. 

I. Ancient History begins with a brief introduction of the 
Eastern nations, which is followed by a thorough study of Greece 
and Rome, to about 800 A. D., with special reference to tlieir 
institutions and permanent contributions to the modern world. 

II. Mediaeval and Modern History includes a review of the 
later Roman Empire, the rise of the Christian Church, the later 
mediaeval institutions, the beginnings of the modem age, as well 
as giving suitable attention to the rise of the modem states, Euro- 
pean expansion, the development of free institutions, economic 
progress and social change. 

III. American History and Civil Government. One semester 
is given to each of these subjects. Texts used: An American 
History, Muzzey; American Government, Magruder, 

Home Economics 

I. Elementary Cooking — Study of foods, their composition, 
products, and principles of cooking. Special attention given to 
selection, purchase, and care of foods, together with their nutri- 
tive value. Menus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner are prepared, 
paying attention to balanced meals.

struction of simple garments. Care of equipment. Use of com- 
mercial patterns. 

Mathematics 

Arithmetic. Arithmetic is completed in the Academic and 
Commercial courses. Standard Arithmetic, Milne. 

Algebra I. The four fundamental operations are thorouglily 
mastered, with special emphasis on inspection methods. The 
subject is pursued through factoring, fractions, and simultaneous 
equations. The large number of carefully graded written prob- 
lems both show the value and interest of algebraic processes and 
develop the student's powers of applying principles to practical 
problems. Standard Algebra, Milne-Downey. 

Algebra H. A month is devoted to a thorough review of 
first year work. Intermediate work is completed through quad- 
ratics, the progressions, and the binomial theorem, fully preparing 

33 



the student for advanced work. Standard Algebra, Milne- 
Downey. 

Plane Geometry. A complete working knowledge of the prin- 
ciples and methods of the subject is aimed at, together with a 
development of the ability to give clear and accurate expression 
to statements and reasons in demonstration. A large amount of 
independent exercise of his reasoning powers. Plane Geometry, 
Avery. 

Solid Geometry. By emphasis on the effects of perspective, 
and by the use of models, the student is helped to a comprehen- 
sion of figures and relations in three dimensions. The practical 
application to mensuration problems are a feature of the course. 
Solid Geometry, Durrell and Arnold. 

Romance Languages — French 
Courses are offered in French which fully prepare for col- 
lege entrance. The aim is to give at least the beginnings of a real 
insight into the language and literature. As far as possible the 
language studied is made the language of the class room. Daily 
exercises in grammar, translation and composition are supple- 
mented by frequent conversational exercises, the memorizing of 
standard poems, and class singing. French table.

Spanish 

The growing commercial relations between the United States 
and South America and the valuable literature and history found 

34

now allow credit in Spanish for entrance. Spanish table.

Commercial Courses 

The business world offers attractive and varied opportunities 
for those whose talents and inclinations fit them for its pursuits. 
It affords the biggest fiield in which education can be put to prac- 
tical use, and it is the field which pays the highest immediate 
returns to those who possess initiative, ambition, and a careful 
business training. 

Regular Commercial Course 

Diploma Course 

This course is designed not only to prepare the student for 
immediate employment, but also to give a broad education in

Executive Secretarial Course 

This course prepares its graduates to take positions as "secre- 
taries," not mere stenographers. 

Business men, leaders in the arts and sciences, and men and 
women of affairs in general, require the services of private secre- 
taries; and no other kind of service puts the alert, reliable, and 

36 



ambitious young woman or young man in intimate touch with 
leaders in the various Hues of endeavor as does secretarial work. 

Since this work requires a high type of individual and thor- 
ough preparation, the compensation and the opportunities for 
advancement are much better than for the stenographer.

Music 

The highest standard of musical excellence and artistic worth 
is maintained in every branch of the musical work at Dickinson. 
Special attention is called to the advantages attendant upon pur- 
suing a course of study in a regular and fully equipped school

dents take part. Instrimiental and vocal ensemble work also has 
a definite place in the curriculum. 

Full and complete courses are offered in Piano, Voice, Violin, 
Ear Training, Appreciation, Harmony, History, and Ensemble. 
All certificate and diploma students are required to do a certain 
amount of public recital work, and all other students are required 
to appear in private or public recitals at the discretion of the 
Director. The length of time necessary to complete any one 
course depends altogether on the ability and application of the 
student. 

The Seminary diploma in music is granted to a student who 
completes the required work in his special subject, as described 
below in the catalog. The candidate must also give a public 

40 



recital and must have completed our History and Literature 
Course or its equivalent. (Note: Any high school graduate 
coming to Dickinson for the study of music, upon completion 
of the music course, is entitled to the diploma.) Any candidate 
having completed the required musical work, but who does not 
have the equivalent of a high school diploma, will be granted a 
certificate. 

The Music Department maintains two Glee Clubs, a Boys' 
Glee Club and a Girls' Glee Club. Members for these are care-

marks, intervals, ear-training and sight-singing.

familiar with the representative works of the great composers 
and of stimulating interest in and cuUivating a taste for the best 
in music. It includes a study of music from the standpoint of 
the three elements; rhythm, melody and harmony; the develop- 
ment of musical expression — instruments of the orchestra, voices,

student remains in this class until deemed ready by the teacher to 
take the final examination at the end of the year. It may be, there- 
fore, that elementary pupils will remain in this first-year work for sev- 
eral years. After passing into the second year, the last three years each 
cover a period of one school year. 

44 



Self-Help 

There are opportunities in the school for self-help for only 
a very few girls. About forty boys are able to earn part of 
their expenses in various ways in the school, and there are many 
opportunities for student work in the town. 

Loans 

A limited number of worthy students, members of the Meth- 
odist Episcopal Church, may secure loans from the Student Loan 
Fund administered by the Board of Education of that Church. 
Christian character, satisfactory scholarship, promise of useful- 
ness, financial responsibility, and the recommendation of the 
church to which the applicant belongs are essential to a loan. 
Each borrower must sign an interest-bearing promissory note. 

There are also loan funds in the Philadelphia and Central 
Pennsylvania Conferences of the Methodist Episcopal Church for 
students from these conferences on practically the same terms 
as above. 

Detailed information may be secured from the President.

SPECIAL INFORMATION 

Young people of good moral character may enter the Semi- 
nary at any time for a single semester or longer. 

Applicants must bring certificate of work done and recom- 
mendation from schools previously attended or from former 
instructors, or other responsible persons. 

Students from a distance are required to live in the buildings, 
but those having near relatives residing in Williamsport are some- 
times granted permission to make their homes with them. 

Students are expected to come on the first day of the semester 
and remain until the last way. Absences from classes, at the be- 
ginning or end of holiday recesses, count double and will not be 
excused, except for very special reasons. 

Parents should not call their children home during the semes- 
ter. Any absence interferes with good work. 

Permits from home are accepted as advices, not mandates. In 
any case the final decision as to whether a permission will be 
granted, rests with the President and Faculty. A permit, to be 
considered, should be mailed directly to the President. 

No student shall be considered as having severed his connec- 
tion with the Seminary, until notice has been given and permis- 
sion obtained from the President. 

Students must report at the Seminary immediately upon ar- 
rival in Williamsport. 

Students should be sparingly supplied with spending money. 
Whenever desired a member of the Faculty will act as patron, 
paying weekly such allowances as may be designated, and super- 
vising all expenditures. 

The whole wardrobe for girls should be in good taste but 
simple and inexpensive. Unbeseeming costume and elaborate 
jewelry are not permitted. 

Frequenting hotels and pool rooms, using intoxicating liquors, 
playing at cards or games of chance, indulging in coarse or pro- 
fane language are strictly forbidden. 

No firearms of any kind are allowed in the buildings. 

Any student, who for disciplinary reasons, is requested to 
leave the city before a certain time, shall be considered as having 
expelled himself if he delays his departure beyond the time 
designated. 

51 



The Sabbath must be fittingly observed. Attendance upon 
church services is required of all. 

All students are expected to provide themselves with a hymnal 
for use in the chapel service. 

Students in residence at the Seminary shall not be allowed to 
maintain automobiles at the school or in the city, except for spe- 
cial reasons and on permission from the President, nor shall they 
be allowed to hire or leave the city in automobiles without per- 
mission from the President, 

Our rooms are thoroughly furnished. We supply bed, bed- 
stead, pillows, pillow slips, sheets, blankets, and counterpanes. 
We supply one 50 watt bulb for each room. For each addi- 
tional light socket in the room, the student will be charged $2.50 
each semester. The student should bring with him the follow- 
lowing: 4 table napkins, 2 laundry bags, 1 pair slippers, shoe 
polishing outfit, 1 clothes brush, 1 bath robe, 6 face towels, 4 
bath towels. We supply two double blankets. If students wish 
more they must bring them. Every article of clothing that goes 
to the laundry should be plainly marked with the student's full 
name with the best indelible ink that can be purchased. 

Meeting or engaging in conversation by boys and girls is for- 
bidden except at such times and places as may be arranged for by 
the Faculty. 

Teachers and students remaining at the Seminary during the 
short vacations will be charged $1.50 for each day or part of a 
day. 

Guests may be entertained only when the permission of the 
President has first been obtained and their hosts pay the regular 
rates for their entertainment. Parents or guardians visiting pupils 
are for the first twenty-four hours the guests of the Seminary. 
No visitors are allowed in the halls or in the students' rooms 
without permission. 

Everyone who desires to continue as a student of the Semi- 
nary must show a reasonable disposition to comply with its regu- 
lations. In addition to the above some of the things expected 
are the following: 

To be present at recitations or in his own room or in the study 
hall during study hours. 

To keep his room and furniture in good condition. 

To pay at once for any damage done by him to furniture, 
room, or any part of the grounds and buildings. 

52 



To refrain from using tobacco in any form about the build- 
ings or grounds. 

Not to leave the city or go bathing, boating, skating, fishing, 
gunning, or riding without permission from the President. 

To obtain the permission of the Faculty before dropping any 
study which has been taken up. 

Day students during school hours are under the same regula- 
tions as the boarding students. They are required : 

To study quietly in the Study Hall when not in actual at- 
tendance upon recitations. 

To attend the morning chapel services. 

To procure from parent or guardian a written excuse for 
absence from chapel or recitation. 

To abstain from all visiting in dormitory halls or in students' 
rooms during study hours. 

Any public announcement made during the school year by any 
one in authority is as binding as if printed in the catalogue.
