It provides facilities for both day school and boarding students offering two years of college and four years of preparatory work, including courses in music, art, expression, and business. Location It is located at Williamsport, Pennsylvania, "The Queen City of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River," on the famed Sus- quehanna Trail, midway between Buffalo, New York, and Washing- ton, D. C. Williamsport is famed for its picturesque scenery, its beautiful homes, and the culture and kindness of its people. The Pennsylvania and the Reading Railroads, with their fast trains, and the Lakes-to-Sea and the Greyhound Buses put it within two hours' reach of Harrisburg, four and a half hours of Philadelphia, and six hours of Pittsburgh. History Williamsport Dickinson Seminary was founded in 1848 by a group of men of Williamsport under the leadership of Rev. Benja- min 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 patron- age of the old Baltimore Conference. It was acquired in 1869 and is still owned by the Preachers' Aid Society of the Central Pennsyl- vania Conference of the Methodist Church, and is regularly char- tered 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 9 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 preparatory field and contin- ued in that field till 1929. After considering both the opportunity and the need of doing more advanced work, the Board of Directors at their meeting in October, 1928, voted to continue the college pre- paratory 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 school to be affectionately referred 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 Bald Eagle Range of the Allegheny Mountains, affording a view of perennial charm. To the north are the Grampian Hills. In fact Williamsport, "beautiful for location," 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. Main The Main Building is an imposing structure of brick and occu- pies the central part of the campus. In this building are the admin- istrative offices, class rooms, and dormitories. There are hardwood floors throughout. 10 Bradley Hall Bradley Hall was erected in 1895 of red brick and is modern in construction. It furnishes dormitory facilities for members of the faculty and the girls of the Preparatory Department. The li- brary and the dramatic studio are here. Eveland Hall The Service Building is also of red pressed brick and is a modern fireproof building. The basement and the first floor house the heat- ing plant and the laundry. The second and third floors contain dormitories and faculty apartments. The Gymnasium Williamsport Dickinson is fortunate in having a splendid new Gymnasium, dedicated November 8, 1924, which is a popular center of physical, social, and cultural activities. The building is 110 ft. by 88 ft. 6 in., beautifully designed and of semi-fireproof construction. The basement includes a modern swimming pool 20x60 ft., equipped with a sterilization and filtration plant. The pool is con- structed 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 and separate private rooms and showers for both home and visiting teams. Pro- vision 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. Athletic Field Built partially on the site of the old athletic field, the new field runs north and south beginning directly behind the gymnasium and dining hall and extending to the terrace just off Washington Boule- 11 vard on the north. Ample room is provided for tennis courts, foot- ball field, and baseball diamond. New bleachers have been erected which accommodate 1,000 people. They are of steel and concrete foundations on which have been placed wooden seats. The rear wall is of an attractive brick construction surmounted with a wrought iron fence. The entire athletic field is surrounded with the six-foot steel fence. Each section iron is topped with a steel acorn. Evergreens and honey- suckle bushes line the inside of the fence. The Clarke Memorial This new chapel and dining hall, which has been made possible by the bequest of Miss Martha B. Clarke of the Class of 1862 as a memorial to her brothers and herself, is designed in the Colonial Style, and is of fireproof construction. With proper attention hav- ing been given to acoustics, the chapel proper provides facilities for devotional services, assemblies, dramatics, concerts, and lectures. It is planned, with the balcony, to seat six hundred. The dining hall, on the first floor, is arranged with separate entrances and with coat rooms and wash rooms for girls and boys. It opens on a terrace overlooking the campus and athletic field. Effort has been made to produce a comfortable, home-like room. Either table service or cafeteria service is available. Modern methods of heating and air-conditioning are used, and careful attention is given to illumination and to design of lighting fixtures. The erection of this building fits into the plan of an attractive quadrangle, and other improvements extend the open campus to Washington Boulevard. Fine Arts The buildings on the extreme northern portion of the campus on Washington Boulevard facing the campus, provide a modern home for the President and a well-equipped Fine Arts Building, for Music and Art. The new Art Studio takes the full northern sweep on the second floor of the building. Also on that floor are a number 12 The Gyinnasinin of private practice studios and conference rooms for members of the faculty. On the main floor of the building there are three large studios and several smaller rooms for practice purposes. The in- terior walls are finished in light buff and the floors in oak. There is a total of eighteen rooms in the new building which is devoted entirely to Fine Arts. Aim The purpose of Williamsport Dickinson is to prepare students for their life work in a homelike religious atmosphere at a minimum 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 afford- ing 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 Williamsport Dickinson 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 homelike as possible. Here lasting friendships are formed, and memories are stored up to which they may, in future years, look back with affec- tion and pride. Cultural Influences Williamsport Dickinson aims to develop in its students an easy familiarity with the best social forms and customs. Young men and women meet in the dining hall, at receptions, and other social func- 13 tions. These contacts together with frequent talks by instructors do much to develop poise and social ease. Persons of prominence are brought to the school for talks and lectures, and excellent talent pro- vides for recreation and entertainment. Courses of entertainment are provided by community organizations which bring the best artis- tic talent to the city. Students whose grades justify it are permitted and urged to take advantage of these opportunities. Religious Influences Williamsport Dickinson 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 positively 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 students. Reg- ular attendance is required at the daily chapel service. Students attend the Sunday morning service at one of the churches in the city. On Sunday evening all attend a Vesper Service held in the school chapel. There is a weekly Prayer Service in charge of the College Pastor, a member of the faculty, or a visiting 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. The John Wesley Club is composed of students preparing for the ministry or other forms of religious work. Through regular meet- ings and deputation teams they gain valuable training and experience in religious work. Through the generosity of the late Honorable M. B. Rich, for eighteen years President of the Board of Directors, a Department of Religion has been established in the school, and the professor in charge of this department is also COLLEGE PASTOR and gives a large portion of his time in promoting a helpful religious atmosphere in the school and in personal interviews with students on matters of vital interest to them. 14 Government It is aimed to develop in each student a sense of loyalty to the School 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. Certain phases of the discipline in the dormitory lives of the students are supervised and regulated by two student government organizations, one chosen by the boys and one chosen by the girls. The officials of these groups are elected at frequent intervals. Thus the students are presented the opportunity of learning how to be governed, through accepting temporarily the responsibility of gov- erning others. It is understood that students entering Williamsport Dickinson do so with the intention of making an honest effort to do satisfactory 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 asso- ciate 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 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 maintained at all times. Faculty The Faculty is composed of thoroughly trained, carefully selected Christian men and women. The two ideals they hold before them- selves are scholarship and character. They live with the students, IS room on the same halls, eat at the same tables, and strive in every way to win their confidence and friendship. Williamsport Dickinson 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. Per- sistent effort is made to interest everybody in some form of indoor and outdoor sports. Intramural athletic games between groups of students not members of varsity teams encourage athletic activities on the part of all students. The athletic teams are carefully selected and systematically trained. They are sent into a game to win if they can, but more emphasis is placed upon playing a fair game than upon winning. Williamsport Dickinson is represented each year in interscholastic contests by football, basketball, baseball, and tennis teams. An excellent athletic field offers every facility for football, baseball, tennis, and other outdoor sports. During the winter months the tennis courts on the campus are flooded provid- ing an opportunity for skating. 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 be- come free and more graceful. Gymnasium work largely takes the form of games in swimming, bowling, basketball, and other floor work, with attention to those needing special corrective exercises. Outdoor activities include archery, hockey, tennis, skating, hiking, and horseback riding. 16 Bradley Hall Entrance Edward James Gray Metnorial Library Dramatics The Dr. E. J. Gray Memorial Library The library is playing an increasingly important part in any educational program today. Recognizing this, Williamsport Dick- inson completely reorganized its library with the beginning of its Junior College program. Commodious, well lighted, and attractive quarters conveniently located in Bradley Hall were provided. The equipment is entirely new, including steel shelving, quartered oak tables and chairs, desks, filing cabinets, etc. The more than six thousand volumes in the old library were carefully assorted, retain- ing four thousand volumes, to which new volumes have been added bringing the total to eleven thousand. New volumes are added each year. The majority of the new volumes are directly related to the various departments of the Junior College. A very excellent list of reference works has been provided and an attractive group of books for general reading has been added in order to stimulate the interest of the students in books not directly related to their special interest. The library is in charge of a full time professionally trained librarian and a full time experienced assistant librarian, together with student help as needed. The James V. Brown Library is within two squares of the School. Its large collection of books as well as its courses of lectures and entertainments is freely open to all students of the college and the preparatory department. 17 The Junior College The Junior College has become one of the most significant devel- opments in the field of higher education. The high school graduate usually needs to make new social contacts, to learn to accept respon- sibility, and to form systematic habits of study and of living. The Junior College offers these advantages in connection with college studies so that the student's educational progress is not retarded while these important habits are being established. The Junior College offers two types of courses: (l) those which are called terminal, that is, complete educational units in particular fields; and (2) those which cover the first two years of a four-year college for those who desire to complete their degree re- quirements later. Both types of courses meet the highest college standards and afford both pleasant and desirable college experience. The development of the junior college is the result of an increas- ing demand for an individualized program in higher education, a program in which emphasis is placed on meeting the cultural and practical needs of the individual student. Instruction in small groups is offered in the place of mass education. At Williamsport Dickinson the student bridges the gap between high school and col- lege by easy, natural stages, each young man and woman being given a chance for self examination and experiment before definitely decid- ing upon the courses which will lead to his or her chosen profession or vocation. As the enrollment is purposely kept at relatively low figures, the faculty is able to become personally acquainted with each individual. Class groups are therefore small and permit of constant discussion and participation by each student in class problems. Experience has shown that many high school graduates are im- mature when they enter college, and fail to succeed because they are not able to cope with the freedom and responsibilities suddenly thrust upon them. The individualized program in practice at Williamsport Dickinson seeks to remedy this condition by personalized instruction 18 and intimate social contacts. The problems of the student become the very real problems of the instructor who with his personal ac- quaintance with the pupil can guide his energies in the direction best fitted to his aptitudes and talents. Many noteworthy successes result from what otherwise would be failure. Too large a percentage of students who enroll in a four-year college, do not, for various reasons, remain in college until graduation. It is better for these students to enter a Junior College and complete the course, receiving a diploma, than to have the feeling of having dropped from college at a time when the work was only partially completed. The small size of the student group is a spur to greater participation in both scholastic and extracurricular activities developing thereby the qualities of both character and leadership. Thus the Williamsport Dickinson Junior College offers a well rounded and comprehensive program that not only prepares the student for his profession or vocation but for life as well. Recognition and Transfer Privileges Williamsport Dickinson Junior College is a member of the American Association of Junior Colleges, is accredited by the Uni- versity Senate of the Methodist Church, the Pennsylvania State Council of Education, and the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. Graduates from the Junior College are accepted with advanced standing by the leading colleges and uni- versities to which they apply for admission and usually make high scholastic records. Individual cases naturally depend on the student's preparation, the calibre of his work and the course which he desires to pursue. Upon registering at Williamsport Dickinson the student should fully acquaint the Dean with his future plans so that credit requirements of the college to which he plans to go may be anticipated in advance. 19 Junior College Curricula Williamsport Dickinson offers instruction on the college level leading to degrees or diplomas in the following fields: Art Commercial Art Costume Design Illustration Interior Decoration Aeronautics (CAA) Commerce and Finance Dentistry Dramatics Engineering Forestry Home Economics (Liberal Arts College) Homemaking Journalism Law Liberal Arts Library Science Medical Secretarial Medicine Merchandising Ministry Music Organ Piano Public School Music Violin Voice Nursing Physical Education (State Teachers) Secretarial Science Social Work Stenography (Certificate) Teaching Veterinary Medicine I. Arts and Science. This course comprises the first two years of a standard four-year course in a senior college leading to a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. II. General Course. This course is intended for students who do not look forward to a four-year college course or to advanced study. It aims to provide the essential intellectual background of an educated person, and to lay the foundations upon which may be built a solid structure of broad knowl- edge and good citizenship. III. Commerce and Finance. The Commerce and Finance Course is intended primarily as a two- year terminal course in general business and in preparation for minor business executive positions. Those who plan a four-year college course 20 be in Commerce and Finance will be permitted to choose as their Freshman and Sophomore studies that combination of Arts and Science and Commerce and Finance subjects which best fits their particular needs. IV. Secretarial Science and Stenographic. The Secretarial Science Course is intended to furnish a fundamental business education in preparation for positions as secretaries and business executives. For those unable to spend the time necessary to qualify for the secretarial science diploma, the Stenographic Course is offered. This gives an intensive year of training primarily upon typewriting and shorthand. A Certificate of Graduation is awarded upon the successful completion of this course. V. Medical Secretarial. The purpose of the Medical Secretarial Course is to give, both from the scientific and business standpoint, a thorough foundation in the work needed to qualify the student for a position as a secretary and assistant in a physician's office. VI. Home Economics. The Home Economics Course is designed to meet the needs of two groups of students. First, by following the subjects suggested it becomes a Two- Year Homemaking Course for those students planning only two years of college work. However, the student who plans to transfer later to a four-year college will be permitted to elect that combination of subjects from the Home Economics and the Arts and Science Courses which will comprise the first two years of a four-year course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Home Economics. VII. Art. These courses are intended for (1) those who desire to major in art in the Fine Arts College of a university; (2) those who desire to pursue advanced study in an Art School; (3) those who do not intend to pursue a professional art career, but who desire training in general art for its cultural and practical value. VIII. Music. The Junior College offers a two-year course in music paralleling the first two years of courses in a conservatory. Requirements for Admission Fifteen units of high school work are required for admission to the Junior College. Graduates of accredited high schools are ac- 21 cepted on certificate.

Spanish The more important benefits in the study of Spanish are these: direct communication with Spanish-speaking peoples, pleasure read- ing for wholesome leisure, aid in commerce and business, improve- ment of mental discipline and culture, aid in research, promotion of peace and good-will, better understanding of English, and a neces- sary preparation for radio announcing. Dr. L. S. Rowe, Director of the Pan-American Union, says in part: "In reality the study of Spanish is essential to the further development of true Pan-Americanism. Without it, we cannot hope to proceed very far in the path of mutual understanding between the nations of America which is so essential to the peace and prosperity of this continent." Two years of Spanish is recommended for all students majoring in a commerce course. 11. Spanish. This course presents the essentials of Spanish grammar, including idioms and irregular verbs.

Art A Junior College diploma will be awarded to students who satis- factorily complete two years of art work plus English, Bible, and Physical Education in the freshman year; History and Appreciation of Art, an academic elective, and Physical Education in the sopho- more year. The aim of the art course is to give the student thorough training in artistic creation; to guide in developing taste and power of dis- crimination in general aesthetic appreciation; to give preparation for entrance into various fields of professional art work; to give practical training which may be put to immediate or future use in the business world; and to create a desire for research in the great art periods of the past. Care is taken not to interfere with indi- viduality but to develop the student's own latent abilities. A well-balanced and practical art course is provided by dividing the time devoted to art subjects as follows: Sixty per cent to draw- ing, twenty per cent to design, and twenty per cent to color. This work is taught through different subjects, which naturally somewhat overlap. 47 Drawing is taught through anatomy, cast, costume life, still life, perspective, and composition. Design is taught through block printing, costume design, plant analysis, pen and ink, textile design, poster design, and interior decoration. Color is taught through portrait, posters, textiles, interiors, oils, water colors, pastels, and plant analysis. A course in the History and Appreciation of Art (Art 11-12) is given one hour weekly throughout the year with one hour of credit each semester. It involves a study and analysis of the architecture, sculpture, painting, and minor arts produced from prehistoric times to the present day. The work of the year must be left for exhibition during com- mencement. While encouragement is given to the development of individual aptitudes, the first year's art work for all students is practically the same and is as follows: First Year Prerequisite Course First year subjects required of all students working toward a diploma: Drawing from cast and costume life, painting in water colors from still life and flowers, fundamental principles of design as related to decorative and commercial art, lettering, free-hand per- spective and theory and practice of color harmony. If there is a demand, work will be offered in clay modeling and leather tooling. Students with a taste for art not yet suflSciently defined to justify the choice of a profession will find this a suitable foundation for later specialization. Second Year In the second year, students will specialize in one of the follow- ing courses: Illustration, Commercial Art, Costume Design, or In- terior Decoration. 48 Illustration Advanced painting in oils and water colors from landscape and from life. Original illustrations from given subjects submitted weekly. History and Appreciation of Art — illustrated lectures. Commercial Art Advanced drawing, color harmony, design involving original studies in space and line arrangement, pencil, ink, and color render- ings. Principles of advertising are studied, also cover and poster designs, book plates, decorative page arrangements and study of reproduction processes. History and Appreciation of Art. Costume Design Advanced studies in color harmony, nature study and its adapta- tion to design. History of costume — its value and adaptation, designing of costumes and accessories, block printing, rendering of costumed models in various mediums. History and Appreciation of Art. Interior Decoration Elements of color and design, historic ornament, water color rendering, history of period furniture and architecture, design and rendering of interiors, mechanical drawing. History and Apprecia- tion of Art. Note: Students expecting to study architecture will be given valuable preparation by this course. 49 Music The highest standard of musical excellence and artistic worth is maintained in every branch of the musical work at Williamsport Dickinson. Special attention is called to the advantages attendant upon pursuing 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. A two-manual electric Everett Orgatron with chimes is main- tained for organ lessons and practice. The arrangement of the stop tablets, the expression pedal, the grand crescendo pedal, the con- cavity and radius of the standard 32-note pedal clavier, the angle of the keyboards, the overhang of the keys and the distance between the manuals of this instrument is like a pipe organ. The console of the Orgatron is designed to conform to the specifications set up and approved by the American Guild of Organists and the Royal College of Organists (Great Britain). The entire music department, except the orgatron, is housed in the new Fine Arts Building, opened in 1940. Full and complete courses are offered in Piano, Voice, Violin, Ear Training, Harmony, History and Appreciation of Music, 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 stu- dent. 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 Preparatory Music Course, which is a four-year course, designed to be conveniently taken along with the College Preparatory Course, or the General Academic Course, (see page 64) ; (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 60 those who enter the regular Junior College work, namely, a high school diploma. In addition, it is understood that the student shall present musical qualifications equivalent to the Preparatory Music Course as outlined in this catalogue (page 64) with the exception of the theoretical work. 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 on subsequent pages. The Music Department maintains a Choral Club, a Double Male Quartette, a Chapel Choir, an Orchestra, and a String Ensemble. All Williamsport Dickinson students are eligible to these organizations.

Courses of Study The Diploma of the Seminary will be awarded to the student who completes any one of the following courses: College Preparatory, General Academic, Piano, Voice, Violin, or Art. Students completing a course in one of the special departments 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 Prepara- tory course consists of fifteen and one-half units, three of which must be in English, and two and one-half of which must be in Mathematics, American History and Government, one unit of Science, not less than two units each of two Foreign Languages or four of one Foreign Lan- guage and one-half unit in Bible must be included in the fifteen and one-half units. The General Academic course is not intended necessarily to pre- pare for college. The minimum requirement for graduation in this course consists of seventeen units, four of which must be in English, two in Foreign Language, one in American History and Government, one in Science, one in Algebra, one in Geometry, and one-half unit in Bible. 66 u A student in any course must have to his credit one semester of Bible, four periods per week. He must also have one year of Physi- cal Training for each year spent in Williamsport Dickinson. A unit represents one year of work, thirty-six weeks, five fifty- 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 faculty 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. At least two years of any language elected in any course will be required for graduation. For more detailed information, see Courses of Instruction. Certificates, with recommendation for admission to college, will be granted in any subject only to students who make a grade of at least 80%. Our certificates are accepted by all colleges accepting certificates. A number of colleges are now admitting by certificates only those who rank in a certain section of their class, usually the first half. 67 FRESHMAN YEAR College Pbepaeatohy General Academic English I 5 Algebra I 6 Ancient History 5 Biology 6 Latin I 5 Physical Training 2 3% English I 6 1 Algebra 1 5 1 Ancient History 5 1 Biology 6 1 Physical Training 2 SOPHOMORE YEAR English II 5 2/4 Plane Geometry 5 1 Med. & Mod.

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, personality, 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 mythology. Con- tinued study of such phases of Roman life as will help the student better to understand the text read. 69 English Two pieces of written work are required of eacli 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 ap- proval, 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. Atten- tion is also given to oral expression as a basis for composition writing. For first practice frequent short themes are assigned. Second Year: This course includes continued study and review of vocabulary, punctuation, paragraph structure and introduction to the forms of discourse in themes; forms for social and business let- ters; practice in oral expression. Special credit is given for extra reading. Third Year: This course includes a continued review of the ele- mentary work of the first two years, mentioned above, with increased emphasis upon the rhetorical principles of unity, coherence, and emphasis in the paragraph and the longer theme. The student makes practical application of the principles in themes, which receive de- tailed criticism from the instructor. Special credit is given for extra reading. Fourth Year: A special effort is made in the fourth year to pre- pare the student adequately for Freshman English in college. The course includes a thorough review of the principles of grammar, com- position, and rhetoric. Verse is studied intensively, and other types are given adequate attention. English literature, with an excursion into American literature to study Emerson, is studied chronologically. Supplementary readings and reports are required. Fifth Year: This special course in English is designed pri- marily for high school graduates who desire a general review of the principles of grammar, composition, and rhetoric before beginning the study of English in college. Thorough drill is given, with spe- cial attention to the needs of the particular group. 60 History I. Ancient History begins with a brief introduction of the East- ern nations, which is followed by a thorough study of Greece and Rome, to about 800 A. D., with special reference to their 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 modern age, as well as giving suitable attention to the rise of the modern states, European expansion, the development of free institutions, economic progress and social change. III. American History is treated in a topical manner, emphasiz- ing the development of the principal movements and forces leading to contemporary problems. Historical events from the age of dis- covery to the present are analyzed in an effort to gain a better under- standing of America today. IV. American Government is offered the second semester only. In this course both the present structure of government and the problems of democracy are studied. The duties and responsibilities of intelligent citizenship are given special attention. Mathematics Algebra I. This course meets the requirements for elementary algebra according to College Board requirements, through quadratic equations solved by factoring. Algebra II. A month is devoted to a thorough review of first year work. Intermediate work is completed through quadratics, the progressions, and the binominal theorem and logarithms, fully pre- paring the student for advanced work. Plane Geometry. A complete working knowledge of the prin- ciples and methods of the subject is aimed at, together with a devel- opment of the ability to give clear and accurate expression to state- ments and reasons in demonstration. A large amount of independent exercise of the reasoning powers is required. Solid Geometry. By emphasis on the effects of perspective, and by the use of models, the student is helped to a comprehension 61 of figures and relations in three dimensions. The practical applica- tion to mensuration problems is a feature of the course. Plane Trigonometry. This course involves the solution of plane triangles by means of logarithms and the functions of the angles. Identities, equations, circular measure, derivation of laws and for- mulae are among the topics discussed. Mathematics Review. A course presenting a thorough review of the first two years of algebra together with plane geometry. It is intended for those students having credit in these subjects but who desire additional preparation for college mathematics. French First Year: Conversation. Pronunciation. Sight translation. Composition. Second Year: Conversation. Dictation. Sight translation. Pronunciation. Composition. Third Year: Advanced composition, free reproduction. Sight translation. One book to be read outside. Reading of French newspapers. The language of the classroom is French during the course. Public Speaking The department offers a regular one year's course in Public Speaking. Class instruction is given four periods per week and credit for this work is allowed in all regular courses. Sciences Biology. This one-year course aims to give the proper perspec- tive to the student beginning the study of science. It seeks to ap- proach the study of life, especially in its simpler forms, with the idea of opening before the student the door to a true realization of the meaning of physical life and to an appreciation of its problems. Physics. One year is devoted to the study of Physics. The course includes four recitations and two hours of laboratory work per 62 week. Forty experiments are performed, data recorded, and notes written up in the laboratory. Chemistry. The subject of Chemistry is pursued throughout the year, the course consisting of four recitations and two hours of lab- oratory work each week. The course includes descriptive chemistry, and a thorough and systematic treatment of the science with consid- erable emphasis put on the chemistry of modern life. Forty experi- ments are completed and written up in the laboratory. Spanish First Year: Essentials of Spanish grammar, including a good basic vocabulary, drills on everyday idioms and expressions, easy readings, special verb studies. Second Year: More rapid reading, review of grammar, dicta- tions, and special exercises. Previous to 1939, Spanish was given either eight or ten times per week. Thus First Year Spanish was completed during the first semester and Second Year Spanish was completed during the second semester. This practice has been discontinued for the above. Art A diploma in preparatory art will be awarded to students who satisfactorily complete two years of art work. Thirty class periods a week for two years are required to obtain a diploma. The sub- jects taught are the same as those given in the Junior College Art department (see pages 47-49), except that no work in the academic departments of the school is required. The introductory work during the first year is practically the same for all students, although individual abilities and aptitudes are encouraged. (The prerequisite course is not required of those who wish special work not leading to a diploma). In the second year, the student may choose his own field of specialization from the following courses: Illustration, Commercial Art, Costume Design, Interior Decoration. For a description of the prerequisite and elec- tive courses (see pages 47-49). 63 Expression Private Lessons Private lessons in oral expression are planned to meet the needs of the individual student. Special attention is given to problems of voice and diction, interpretation of dramatic selections and platform deportment in all its phases. Music A Diploma in Preparatory Music is granted to a student who completes the required work in the Preparatory Music Course as described below in the catalogue. The candidate must have com- pleted our College Preparatory Course, or the General Academic Course, or its equivalent. Any candidate having completed the work in the Preparatory Music Course, but who does not have the equiva- lent of a high school diploma, will be granted a Certificate in Pre- paratory Music. All students in the Preparatory Music Course must give a group of at least three compositions in public in their senior year. Any student, whether he takes up the study of theory or not, may take lessons in the practical subjects, Piano, Voice, and Violin, thereby getting the benefit of study with systematic supervision. Such students are not eligible, of course, to any diploma in music, but will be listed as "special students in music."

Loans A limited number of worthy students, members of the Meth- odist Church, may secure loans from the Student Loan Fund administered by the Board of Education of that Church. Christian character, satisfactory scholarship, promise of usefulness, 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 the Central Pennsylvania Conferences of the Methodist Church for students from these conferences on practically the same terms as above. Detailed information may be secured from the President. Scholarships Over two thousand dollars are awarded annually in scholarships and prizes.

Applicants must bring a certificate of work done and recommen- dations from the schools previously attended, or from former instruc- tors, or other responsible persons. Regulations It is the endeavor of Williamsport Dickinson to create a homelike atmosphere of good fellowship in which study and recreation are pleasantly blended to achieve a maximum amount of progress without an excess of restrictive disciplinary measures. However, a certain number of regulations are naturally essential to the smooth running of an organization the size of Williamsport Dickinson. The school regulations, in addition to those which are given here, are published in the form of a hand book, which will be furnished to each student upon matriculation. These regulations have evolved from the exper- iences of many years which have shown that Williamsport Dickinson has a group of students of unusually high calibre, the majority of whom have a definite goal in life. Student government and self dis- cipline are encouraged by the school authorities as exerting a definite influence upon the building of good character and good citizenship. Students from a distance are required to live in the building, but those having near relatives residing in Williamsport are sometimes granted permission to make their homes with them. Students will find it much easier to grasp the work and get a good start for the school year if they plan to arrive on the first day of the semester and remain until the last day. Absences from classes at the beginning or end of holiday recesses count double and will only be excused for very special reasons. It is suggested to parents that they should not call their children home during the semester as any absence interferes with good work. As students are responsible to Williamsport Dickinson en route to and from school, they are expected to report at the Seminary imme- 78 diately upon arriving in Williamsport. Williamsport Dickinson ex- pects each student to maintain the honor of the school by such con- duct as becomes a lady or a gentleman. Students should be sparingly supplied with spending money, in- asmuch as the tuition and board take care of all ordinary expenses. If it is so desired, a member of the faculty will act as patron, paying weekly such allowances as may be designated and supervis- ing all expenditures. Students should place money and valuables in the school safe. The school is not to be held responsible for money or valuables not placed therein. The students are expected to keep the doors of their rooms locked at all times. No firearms of any kind are allowed in the buildings. Students in residence at Williamsport Dickinson are not permit- ted to maintain automobiles at the school or in the city, except for special reasons, and on permission from the President or the Dean, nor are they permitted to hire or leave the city in automobiles without special permission. Rooms at Williamsport Dickinson are thoroughly furnished. A comfortable bed, pillows, pillow slips, sheets, blankets, and counter- panes are furnished. One 50 watt bulb is supplied for each room. For each additional light socket in the room the student will be charged $2.50 each semester. The student should bring the follow- ing: 4 table napkins, 2 laundry bags, 1 pair of slippers, shoe pol- ishing outfit, 1 clothes brush, 1 bath robe, 6 face towels, 4 bath towels. The school supplies two double blankets. If students wish more than this number they should 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 or with name tapes. Teachers and students remaining at Williamsport Dickinson dur- ing the short vacations will be charged $1.50 for each day or part of a day. Parents or guardians visiting pupils are the guests of the Semi- nary for the first twenty-four hours. Other guests may be enter- tained if permission is secured from the President. Their student hosts are expected to pay the regular rates for their entertainment. 79 General Expenses In All Regular Courses Except Music Boarding Student Dap Student Tuition — yearly $250 Board, Furnished Room, Laundry and Tuition $650 Activities Fee 18 18 Damage Fee Deposit (Unused Balance Re- turnable 10 7.50 Registration Fee (Not Returnable) Payable with Application for Admission 10 6 Books are extra and the cost depends on the course taken.

No deduction is made for the first two weeks or the last three weeks of the year or the term. No payment or any part of the same will be refunded in the case of a student who withdraws on account of homesickness or other unnecessary cause since the school is unnecessarily inconveni- enced and disturbed by such withdrawal. Music, Art, and private lessons in Expression when taken in connection with a regular course cost extra. For extra service, such as meals served in rooms, additional laundry work, private instruction outside the class room, et cetera, an extra charge is made to both students and faculty. In order to graduate and to receive a diploma or certificate a student must have spent at least one year in study at the Seminary and also have paid all his bills, in cash or its equivalent — not in notes.

Each state has its own special laws relating to wills which should be carefully observed. Annuity Bonds There are doubtless persons who desire to give the Seminary certain sums of money but need the income on the same while they live. To all such we gladly state that we are legally authorized, and fully prepared to issue Annuity Bonds on which we pay interest, semi- annually, to the donors as long as they live. The rate of interest varies with the age of the one making the donation. Those interested will please correspond with the President of the Seminary. President John W. Long, D.D., LL.D.
