The School 

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. 


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. 


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- 

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 vi^ork, 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, affording 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 

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 

Bradley Hall is the Fine Arts Building. It was erected in 
1895 of red brick and is modern 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. 

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 are used for the boys of the Junior 


The Swimming Pool 
The Boxvling Alleys 

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 

The basement includes a modern swimming pool 20x60 ft., 
equipped with a sterilization and filtration plant, that necessi- 
tates 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. 


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 

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 


The Dining Room 
Girls' Dormitory Room 

At Work in the Art Department 
The Dart Board — llie Senior Class Annual 

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. 


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, 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. 


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 
Semmary 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. 


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 some 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' 


A part of the new equipment to meet the enlarged program 
of the Junior College is the library. A large, well lighted, and 
attractive room conveniently located in the main building has 
been provided. The equipment is entirely new including steel 
shelving, quartered oak tables and chairs, desk, filing cabinet, etc. 
The more than six thousand volumes in the old library were 
carefully assorted, retaining four thousand volumes, to which 
new carefully selected reference volumes have been added and 
will continue to be added. A trained full time librarian is in 
charge and every effort is made to train the student in an intelli- 
gent use of the library with its facilities. 

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 Music Departmeni — The Director's Studio 
GijUiuasiu in . I iidiloriii in 


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 room in separate dormitories and meet in sepa- 
rate classes; the faculty meets all of the standard requirements 
for college teachers, and the work is in all ways of a collegiate 

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 Junior College was opened September, 1929, with an 
enrollment of fifty students and with courses in Liberal Arts, 
Business Administration, and Secretarial Science. The standards 
for Junior Colleges set up by the Association of Colleges and 


Preparatory Schools of the Middle States and Maryland were 
met from the beginning. Additions were made to the faculty, a 
full time Librarian was added, the Library and Laboratories were 
enlarged, new furniture and equipment were added. Thus the 
conditions necessary to do satisfactory college work were secured 
from the outset. New courses will be added and additional 
members of the faculty will be secured as the enrollment and 
demand justify. 

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. 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 1^ units 

Plane Geometry 1 unJt 

Science 1 unit 

Foreign Language 2 units 

History 1 unit 

Electives 5^ units 

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. 


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


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 hoiu-s 

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 students 
planning only two years of college work. 


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. 

Note: After the catalogue material was placed in the hands of the 
printer we received a gift of $50,000 from the President of the Board of 
Directors, Hon. M. B. Rich, of Woolrich, Pa., to endow a chair of Bible 
and Religious Education. This announcement comes too late to include a 
detailed description of courses which will be given in this department be- 
ginning with the opening of school September, 1930. 


I. General Biology. A study of the fundamental facts and 
principles relating to the structure and activities of living or- 
ganisms, both plants and animals ; laboratory examination of a 
series of type forms passing from the simplest organisms to 
Pteridophytes and Crustacea. 


Two hours lecture, four hours laboratory work. First se- 
mester, Credit three units. 

II. A continuation of Course I. A study of the general 
principles and theories of biology, the relations of organisms with 
one another and with their environment ; laboratory study of the 
structure and physiology of flowering plants, and of a series of 
selected vertebrate animal forms leading up to a brief study of 
the anatomy and physiology of the human body. 

Two hours lecture, four hours laboratory work. Second 
semester, Credit three units. 


I. An introductory course in general chemistry to develop 
the meaning of those terms and ideas essential to an understand- 
ing of the science. There is a careful study of the atomic, 
kinetic-molecular, and ionization theories, and their relation to 
chemical action. Some of the non-metallic elements and their 
compounds are discussed, giving opportunity for practical illus- 
trations of the various laws and theories. 

Lecture and recitation, three hours per week, first semester. 
Laboratory, four hours per week. 

II. A descriptive study of the preparation, properties, and 
uses of the important non-metallic elements not discussed during 
the first semester; a brief study of the most important metals, 
including metallurgical process and main analytical reactions. 
Both metals and non-metals are discussed in relation to the 
periodic classification of the elements. 

Lecture and recitation, three hours per week, second semester. 
Laboratory, four hours per week. 

Courses in Commerce and Finance 

Principles of Economics. This is a general course in Eco- 
nomic Theory. Economic terminology, business organization, 
value, exchange, production, consumption and similar subjects 
of theory will be emphasized. The fundamental relation of this 
subject to other sciences is shown. 

First semester. Three hours. 

Economic Problems. This is a continuation of the Principles 
of Economics but is concerned primarily with problems of dis- 
tribution. Wages, profits, interest, rent, tariff, social control of 
industry and kindred questions will be treated. 

Second semester. Three hours. 


Elementary Accounting. This course develops the various 
types of statements, books of final and original entry of sole pro- 
prietorship and partnership businesses. Posting, closing ledgers, 
depreciation and reserves, the work sheet, controlling accounts 
will receive the required attention. 

First semester. Three hours. 

Advanced Accounting. This is a continuation of Elementary 
Accounting but will be confined to corporation accounting and 
accounts peculiar to it. A more advanced analysis of accounting

Secretarial Science 

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 
ambitious young woman or young man in intimate touch with 
leaders in the various lines 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.

tives: (1) To equip the student with a working knowledge of 
the language necessary to an understanding of German culture;

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 
of music. Private and public recitals are frequently held, in 
which the students take part. Instrumental and vocal ensemble 
work also has a definite place in the curriculum. 

Full and complete courses are oft'ered in Piano, Voice, Violin, 
Ear Training, History and Appreciation of Music, Elementary 
Theory, 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. All students in the Preparatory Music 
Course must give a group of at least three compositions in 
public in their senior year, and all students in the College Music 
Course must give a graduating recital in their final year of work. 

Two distinct courses are offered in music : ( 1 ) The Prepara- 
tory Music Course, which is a four-year course, designed to be 
conveniently taken along with the College Preparatory Course, 
or the General Academic Course, or the History and Literature 
Course (see page 33) ; (2) The College Music Course, which 
combines in an excellent manner a detailed music course and a 
considerable amount of work in the Junior College. The College 
Music Course is a two-year course, and is open only to those 


students who present the same entrance qualifications as those 
who enter the regular Junior College work, namely a high school 
diploma. A Diploma in College Music is granted to a student 
who successfully completes the required work in the College 
Music Course as outlined in the catalogue below. 

The Music Department maintains a Choral Club, an Orches- 
tra, and a String Ensemble. Any Seminary students are eligible 
to these organizations.

Note: A credit of one semester hour is given for each hour of class 
work. A credit of two semester hours is given for each hour of daily 
practice, six days per week.

Course, and substitute Harmony II and Ear Training II for the Elective

Students completing a course in one of the special depart- 
ments but without the necessary academic requirements will be

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

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.

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

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 


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

Emphasis will be laid upon thoroughness of work. The fac- 
ulty reserves the right to limit the number of studies which any 
pupil will be allowed to carry. 

Students who do not intend to pursue one of the regular 
courses, with the consent of their parents and the approval of 
the faculty, may elect such studies as they desire.

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. 

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 

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. 


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. 


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- 

34 I 

tempt is constantly made to instill a "feeling for language," and 
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 

The work of the first year includes a thorough study of the 
functions of words, the sentence, and the paragraph. Attention 
is also given to oral expression as a basis for composition writ- 
ing. For first practice frequent short themes are assigned.

Ancient Mariner ; Homer, The Odyssey, Books VI-VIII, Bryant's 
Translation ; Lowell, The Vision of Sir Launfal ; Scott, The Lady 
of the Lake; Shakespeare, Julius Caesar; Stevenson, Treasure

Roger de Coverley Papers ; Goldsmith, She Stoops to Conquer ; 
Shakespeare, Henry the Fifth; Stevenson, Travels with a Don- 
key; Tennyson, selections from The Idylls of the King.

position, and rhetoric. Verse is studied intensively, and the other 
literary types are given sufficient attention. A brief history of 
English literature is required.

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. 

L 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 modem world. 

IL 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

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

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, 

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.

The growing commercial relations between the United States 
and South America and the valuable literature and history found 
in the Spanish language, make the study of that language more 
and more desirable if not a necessity. We are, therefore, offering 
a two years' course in this subject. The aim will be to acquire as 
early as possible a ready use of the spoken language, and to meet 
the requirements for admission to the colleges, all of which 
now allow credit in Spanish for entrance. Spanish table.

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 day. 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 

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 

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. 

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'
