1856, and is found in Chapter 97 of the Laws of Maryland for that 
year. The scope of this act of incorporation is shown by the 
preamble, which reads as follows: 



Whekeas, It has been represented to the Legislature, that certain 
wise and virtuous citizens are desirous of instituting and establishing 
in some convenient locality within this State, an Agricultural College 
and Model Farm, in which the youthful student may especially be 
instructed in those arts and sciences indispensable to successful 
agricultural pursuits; and 

Whereas, It doth appear to this Legislature, that while the wise 
and learned in the present age hath cultivated with laudable industry, 
and applied with admirable success the arts and sciences to other 
pursuits, the most necessary, useful and honorable pursuits of agricul- 
turists have so far been lamentably neglected; and 

Whereas, It is the province and duty of the Legislature to encour- 
age and aid the philanthropic citizens in their efforts to disseminate 
useful knowledge by establishing an Agricultural College and Model 
Farm, which shall, in addition to the usual course of scholastic 
training, particularly indoctrinate the youth of Maryland, theoretically 
and practically, in those arts and sciences, which with good manners 
and morals, shall enable them to subdue the earth and elevate the 
State to the lofty position its advantages in soil, climate, etc., and 
the moral and mental capacities of its citizens, entitle it to attain. 

This was the first effort in the Western Hemisphere to use 
scientific investigation for the advancement of the vocation of Agri- 
culture, since at that time no other institution of a similar char- 
acter existed in the United States. Under the charter thus granted 
to a party of public-spirited individuals, the original College build- 
ing was erected, and its doors were opened to students in the fall 
of 1859. 

For three years it was conducted as a private institution. In 
1862, the Congress of the United States, recognizing the valuable 
work in the cause of practical education which such colleges could 
achieve for the country passed the "Land Grant Act.** This Act 
granted each State and Territory which should claim its benefit 
a proportionate amount of unclaimed Western lands, in place of 
scrip, the proceeds from the sale of which should apply under 



II 



certain conditions to the "endowment, support and maintenance of at 
least one college where the leading object shall be, without excluding 
other scientific and classical studies, and including military tactics, to 
teach such branches of learning as are related to agriculture and the 
mechanic arts, in such manner as the legislatures of the States may 
respectively prescribe, in order to promote the liberal and practical 
education of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and profes- 
sions! of life." This grant having been formally accepted by the 

General Assembly of Maryland, and the Maryland Agricultural 

College being named as the beneficiary of the grant, the College 

thus became, in part, at least, a State institution. In the Fall of 

1914, the College became, wholly, a State institution. 

During recent years the College has made a steady growth. 
This fact is evidenced by the increased number of students availing 
themselves of its facilities; by the erection of many new buildings— 
the library and gymnasium building, the chemical laboratory, Mor- 
rill Hall, the sanitarium, the engineering building, and Calvert 
Hall; as well as by the establishment of the Departments of 
Farmers' Institutes and Extension Work, and the State Departments 
of Chemistry (Fertilizer, Feed and Agricultural Lime Control), 
Horticulture, Entomology and Vegetable Pathology. As a conse- 
quence of its development under such favorable auspices the institu- 
tion has become the most important factor in the agricultural and 
industrial development of the State. 

The State Bureau of Forestry co-operates with the College, the 
Director being, by the terms of his appointment, Lecturer on For- 
estry at the College. 

In 191 6 the General Assembly granted a new charter to the 
College and changed its name from "The Maryland Agricultural 
College'' to "The Maryland State College of Agriculture." 

LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION. 

The College is located in Prince George's county, Maryland, on 
the line of the Washington Branch of the B. & O. R. R. eight 
miles from Washington, and thirty-two miles from Baltimore. At 
least nine trains a day from each city stop at College Station, thus 
making the place easily accessible from all parts of the State. 
Telephone connection is made witK the Chesapeake and Potomac 
lines.

The College grounds front on the Baltimore and Washington 
Boulevard. The suburban town of Hyattsville is two miles to the 
south, and Laurel, the largest town in the county, is ten miles 
to the north on the same road. Access to these towns and to 
Washington may be had by steam and electric railway. The site 
of the College is particularly beautiful. The buildings occupy the 
crest of a commanding hill, which is covered with forest trees, 
and overlooks the entire surrounding country. In front, extend- 
ing to the Boulevard, is a broad, rolling campus, the drill ground 
and athletic field of the students. In the rear are the farm build- 
ings and barn. A quarter of a mile to the northeast are the 
buildings of the Experiment Station. The College farm contains 
about three hundred acres, and is devoted to fields, gardens, orch- 
ards, vineyard, poultry yards, etc., used for experimental purposes 
and demonstration work in agriculture and horticulture. 

The general appearance of the College grounds is exceedingly 
attractive. They are tastefully laid off in lawns and terraces which 
are ornamented with shrubbery and flower beds. The view from 
the grove and campus cannot be surpassed. 

The location of the College is healthful; the sanitary conditions 
are excellent. No better proof of this can be given than that there 
has been practically no serious case of illness among the students 
for many years. 

COLLEGE BUILDINGS. 

The original College building completed in 1859, and the ad- 
ministration building completed in 1904, and connected with the 
former by a covered bridge, were completely destroyed by fire 
on the night of November 29, 1912. A temporary assembly hall, 
kitchen and dining hall have been erected and arc now in 
use. Living rooms for a part of the students are available in 
Calvert Hall, the dormitory constructed in 1914, and in several 
houses on the College campus. 

In 1894 the building used as the library was erected. It is well- 
lighted and commodious. 

The Departments of Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineer- 
ing and the Departments of Physics and of Mathematics are located 
in the two-story brick building erected in 1896, the brick annex. 



13 



erected in 1904, and the brick addition constructed in 1909. This 
latter, which consists of a main building four stories in height and 
a wing three stories in height, is so arranged as to form with the 

buildings previously erected a concrete whole. In this group of 
buildings are found laboratories of various kinds, wood and machine 
shops, a forge room and foundry, drawing rooms, blue print rooms, 
instrument rooms, lecture rooms, offices, a library room, lavatories. 
\ockers, etc. The equipment is modern in every respect and the 
facilities for work in the above named departments have been 
greatly increased. 

The chemical building was completed in 1897, and is now thor- 
oughly equipped. It contains several lecture rooms 2fnd labora- 
tories for practical work and the analysis of fertilizers, feeding 
materials for domestic animals, and agricultural lime. This work 
is assigned by Acts of the General Assembly to the Professor of 
Chemistry at this College, who is thereby constituted State Chemist. 

Morrill Hall, erected in 1898, provides laboratories, lecture and 
class rooms, a dark room and storage rooms for the Agricultural 
and Biological Departments. The extensive insect collections of 
past and present State Entomologists, and the State Herbarium are 
housed in this building. The Departments of Entomology and 
Botany have a small greenhouse attached to Morrill Hall for use 
as an insectary and propagating house. In addition, several class 
rooms and offices are used by the Departments of Economics, 
English, Agricultural Education and Languages. 

The Horticultural Building completed in 1915 provides class 

rooms, propagating shed and offices, opening into a range of nine 

greenhouses and a conservatory abutting on the south wall of the 

building. The main building is 200 feet long, and the adjoining 
greenhouses 50 feet by 20 feet each. This equipment furnishes 

ample accommodations for laboratory work in horticulture and 
is comparable to the best in the country. 

The College Sanitarium, completed in 1901, is being used, tem- 
porarily, as the Administration Building. 

GENERAL AIM AND PURPOSE. 

The College is the State school of science and tech- 
nology. While seeking, first of all, to perform the functions of an 



14 

agricultural college, its sphere of work has been widened to em- 
brace all the sciences akin to agriculture, and all the arts related 
to mechanical training. To these special and prominent lines ot 
work have been added such branches of study as are necessary for 
a liberal education, for the development of the intelligent citizen 
and for general culture. The purpose of this college is to give 
young men anxious to prepare themselves for the active duties of 
life such training in the lecture room, laboratory and field as will 
enable them to take their places in the industrial world well pre- 
pared for the fierce competition of the day. 

Recognizing that such an education, in order to be of practical 
advantage to many, must be offered at a cost within the means of 
all, the expenses for the year to the student have been reduced to 
the point where his college dues are not in excess of his ordinary 
daily expenses. It is to be remembered that the College is a State 
institution, in part supported by the State, in part by the Federal 
Government through its several endowment Acts, and that it is in 
no sense a money-making institution, but simply a medium of dis- 
bursement by the Government to those upon whom the safety, 
progress and prosperity of the State so largely depend. 

While the College provides, as will hereafter be explained, sev- 
eral distinct courses of instruction, looking to the special training 
of the student in agriculture, engineering and science, the fact i« 
clearly kept in view that a sound foundation must be laid for each 
and every course. Successful specialization is only practicable after 
the student has prepared for it by a thorough training in the essen- 
tials. All education must be narrow and one-sided which does not 
provide for the general culture of the student, and which does not 
look first to the natural and normal development of the individual. 
That the aim of the College is to train the student in a specialty 
without sacrificing his development in general culture is shown in 
the description of the general working plan given in the next para* 
graph. 

It begins with the student in the first or Freshman year with 
a systematic and carefully adjusted scheme of work, differing but 
little in the several courses, and looking to his general development 
in mental strength, range of information and power of expression 
and thought. At the beginning of the second or Sophomore year 



15 



the differentiation may be said to begin along those lines for which 
he shows most natural aptitude. This gradual specialization con- 
tinues during the third or Junior year, until in the last or Senior 
year, his work consists chiefly of a few closely correlated topics, in 
which he is thus able thoroughly to prepare himself. With the 
present equipment of the laboratories and work-shops a student is 
able to become so proficient in his chosen line of work that when 
he leaves the College a successful career is open to him. 

The Maryland State College of Agriculture is, logically, the 
crowning point of the public school system of Maryland. Its aim 
in particular is to provide a higher education for the graduates of 
the county high schools. To this end its curriculum is adjusted to 
meet the preparation of such students. It is this class of young 
men that the College is specially desirous of reaching. Experience 
has shown that our most satisfactory students come as graduates 
from the county schools, and no efforts will be spared to make the 
transition from the high school to the College a possible one for 
all those actuated by an earnest desire to complete their education.

professor TALIAFERRO. 
PROFESSOR METZGER. 
MR. BRUCE. 



The Department of Agronomy takes up the agricultural work 
pertaining to the field and its crops. A number of courses are 
offered. These treat of farm crops, their classification, soil and 
climatic adaptations, culture and improvement; soils, their phys- 
ical and chemical properties, methods of treatment for maintenance 
and increase of productiveness; soil amendments, as manures, fer- 
tilizers, cover crops and lime; farm drainage; and farm manage- 
ment. 



19 

The College farm consists of two hundred and sixty-five acres 
of land and is operated by the Maryland Agricultural Experiment 
Station together with an adjoining leased farm. 

Students of the College are kept in close touch with the gen- 
eral and experimental work on these farms which offer an unusual 
variety of soils and crops for observation and study. 

Many of the students, who wish to do so, find work at fair 
wages on the farm and are thereby enabled to pay a part of their 
expenses as well as to gain valuable experience. 

Well-equipped soil and crop laboratories, and a greenhouse de- 
voted to the use of the Agronomy Department afford exceptional 
opportunities for the accurate study, at all seasons, of the scien- 
tific principles involved in the handling of soils and the produc- 
tion of farm crops. 

COURSES OFFERED.

The study of soils is conducted by means of lectures, text-books, 
and laboratory work. 

Sophomore and Senior Year — Firsts and Second Term, 2 theo- 
retical and 4 practical periods per week. 

23. Fertilizers. Of vital interest to the eastern and southern 
farmer of the present day is the fertilizing question. Between it 



*'>j 



20 



and the profit and loss account is a very close connection, and fre- 
quently a lack of knowledge of the subject entails upon the farmer 
both the loss of money paid and of the possible increase of the crop. 
In this course the subject is developed logically from the needs of 
the plant and the efficiency of the soil to the selecting of the proper 
plant foods for each crop under varying conditions of soil and 
climate. Special attention is given to the home-mixing of fertilizers. 

Sophomore Year — Third Term, 2 theoretical and 4 practical 
periods per week. 

24. Principles of Soil Management. Prerequisite, Soils 22. 
A laboratory course dealing with special problems of soil man- 
agement and soil analysis intended for students specializing in

ANIMAL HUSBANDRY. 

professor ruffner. 
mr. stanton. 



The Department of Animal Husbandry stands for all lines of work 
which pertain to the judging, selecting, breeding, feeding, devel- 
opment, care and management of the various breeds and classes of 
domesticated animals. Good herds of stock are being established at 
the Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station which are of use 



23 

to the student in his studies. In addition to the supply of stock 
on the farm the proximity of the College to Washington and Balti- 
more makes it possible for the student to get excellent material for 
study. 

It is quite evident that there is but one way to make a young 
man a proficient judge of live stock, and that is by training the 
eye. In all of the lecture and laboratory work outlined in the 
courses the work is demonstrated with living specimens. 

Junior and Senior students taking this course are sent to farms 
throughout the State of Maryland to supervise advanced registry 
tests for the dairy associations. These trips give the students 
the advantage of observing the most up-to-date dairy farms in the 
country, in addition to practical experience Each year a judging 
team consisting of three students participates in the student's contest 
in judging dairy cattle at the National Dairy Show. Students in 
any of the agricultural courses are eligible to compete for a place 
on this team. The selection of students for the team is based upon 
ability and efficiency in this line of work. 

Students desiring to specialize in any line of live stock are 
allowed to do so and animals are furnished for the special purpose 
whenever possible. 

COURSES OFFERED. 



40. Breeds and Judging. This course is devoted to the detailed 
study of all breeds and classes of live stock. The practical work com- 
mences with a study of the animal form by the use of the score-card. 
Special attention is given to the relation of form to function. 
First, the productive types are firmly fixed in the student's mind; 
then more specific breed characteristics are taken up. In teaching 
this work living specimens and lantern slides are used. 

References, text-books and lectures. 

Freshman Year — First Term, i theoretical period and 4 practical 
periods per week. 

41. Elementary Live Stock Management. Lectures are 
given on the housing, feeding, care and management of dairy cattle, 
beef cattle, horses, sheep and swine. The practical work consists 



24 



of the application of the principles developed in the lectures and 
takes up the drawing of barn plans and other stable conveniences. 
The last few weeks of this term are devoted to a special study 
of the testing of milk and milk products. 

References and lectures. 

Freshman Year— Second Term, 3 theoretical and 4 practical per- 
iods per week. 

42. Breeds and Breeding. One afternoon of each week is 
devoted to the study of breeds and types of live stock. The student 
is taught the relative value of the different types, special attention 
being given to the market classes and grades of live stock. Horses 
are studied from the standpoint of those most valuable to the 
farmer on the farm and those demanded by cities and the U. S. 
Army. The term is divided so as to give the study of horses, 
beef cattle, sheep and swine an equal amount of time. This course 
includes excursions to live stock shows and noted breeding farms. 

Junior Year — First Term, 4 practical periods per week. 

43. Animal Nutrition. This course embraces the principles 
and practice of animal feeding. After covering the principles of 
nutrition, it takes up the composition of feeding stuffs, their com- 
bination into properly balanced rations, and the relation between 
the sustenance of animals and their products. Many practical prob- 
lems are solved. Students entering this course should have com- 
pleted courses in organic chemistry and comparative anatomy and 
physiology.

BOTANY AND VEGETABLE PATHOLOGY. 

PROFESSOR NORTON. 
ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR ROSE. 

The courses in botany are intended to give such knowledge of 
the vegetable kingdom as is a proper element in general culture; to 
train the student mind in observation, comparison, generalization 
and other mental processes essential to true scientific methods in 
any work; and to furnish a basis for practical studies directly con- 
nected with agriculture, since plants are the subjects dealt with in 
the field and garden. In addition to the courses in pure botany, 
others of special economic trend are given. These are specially 
for students in the Agricultural and Horticultural Courses, and 
take up such botanical studies of cultivated plants, plant diseases, 
etc., as may be useful in practical life to the professional farmer or 
gardener. 

The equipment and means for illustration and demonstration 
consist of a reference library containing the principal botanical 
works needed by students, charts and maps, compound and dissect- 
ing microscopes, preserved specimens for illustration and a repre- 
sentative collection of Maryland plants; microtome and other in- 
struments together with reagents and apparatus for histological 
work and physiological experiments; and a culture room, steriliz- 
ers, incubators and other facilities for the study of plant diseases. 

Advanced students have an opportunity to observe the work be- 
ing done in the laboratory of Vegetable Pathology and greenhouse 
of the State Horticultural Department and of the Experiment Sta- 
tion, and, if competent, to assist in the same. Special attention is 
given to students who wish practice in the treatment of plant dis- 
eases, as it is the desire of the Department to encourage young 
men to engage in this work as a business.

for the testing: laboratory: 

A Leeds and Northrup potentiometer and Weston standard volt- 
meter and ammeter for calibrating the various measuring instru- 
ments used in the laboratory. A Sharp-Millar portable photometer 
and a Queen & Co, standard photometer for measuring the candle- 
power of lamps and for determination of illumination intensities.

ENGLISH AND PUBLIC SPEAKING. 

PROFESSOR RICHARDSON. 
MR. BYRD. 
MR. SCHULZ. 

This Department, as its name implies, covers the work of two 
closely allied branches. 

The course in English, of a necessity, lies at the base of all other 
courses of instruction. Clear and comprehensive knowledge of his 
mother tongue is absolutely necessary to the student in pursuing 
any line of college work. Nor is this all ; for aside from the prac- 
tical value of the English instruction as an aid to other branches 
of study, and as a preparation for business and profession, it is to 
his training in this Department, in connection with his study of 
history, the classics and modern languages, that the student must 
look for the acquiring of the general culture which has always been 
the distinguishing mark of the liberally educated man. The Eng- 
lish work, which is common to all courses, consists of the study of 
the structure of the English language, English and American lit- 
erature, theoretical and practical rhetoric, critical reading and 
analysis, and constant exercise in expression, composition and theme 
writing. 

The work in public speaking is begun with easy lessons in elocu- 
tion, and this is continued until the student has acquired a mastery 
of vocal expression, and a pleasing and forcible delivery. The 
student is then required to deliver both extempore and prepared 
speeches and debates, covering a wide range of subjects, in this 
way not only securing practice in delivery, but also developing the 
power of logical thought.

ENTOMOLOGY AND ZOOLOGY. 

professor symons. 

professor CORY. 
MR. CHRISTIE. 

Instruction is given in this Department with a view first, to giv- 
ing the student the general knowledge of invertebrate and verte- 
brate zoology, which is necessary as a foundation science for aiT 
acfricultnral education ; second, to fit the student in elementary and' 
advanced entomology, both economic and systematic, so that he 
niav pursue this specialty after graduation. A course in economic- 
entomology and zoology is also given to provide those students who*

are specializing in any of the allied agricultural sciences, with 
the information which is essential to their ideal development. 

Students who intend to enter the medical profession or work in 
public health and sanitation will find in the Biological Course the 
work w^iich will give them the best possible preparation for those 
professions. 

Students wishing to take advanced work in invertebrate zoology 
are advised to select some subject in entomology. As the State and 
Experiment Station entomological work is conducted through this 
Department, there are special advantages for students in applied 
entomology. 

The reference library is unusually complete, containing in addi- 
tion to the standard works, a majority of the principal entomolo- 
gical and zoological publications. The laboratory is supplied with 
a large collection of insects for the use of students, and is well 
equipped with microscopes and other apparatus necessary for prac- 
tical work in entomology and zoology. 

The glass and screen insectaries of the St^te Horticultural De- 
partment and the Maryland Experiment Station are joined to the 
laboratory, and afford facilities for special investigation to a lim- 
ited number of advanced students. In addition, a greenhouse 50 x 20 
in the new range of houses has been set aside for entomological 
work. 

A laboratory of the Bureau of Entomology has been established 
at the Experiment Station. The Parasitologist in charge is avail- 
able for consultation by students specializing in parasitic Hymen- 
optera.

MR. WHITE. 

Recognizing the great importance of every phase of this subject 
in the State, the Department of Horticulture is offering instruction 
to students desiring to speciaHze in either pomology, vegetable cul- 
ture or landscape gardening and floriculture. The courses in this 
subject have been revised, providing for general courses in all 
phases of horticulture during the Freshman and Sophomore years 
and permitting them to specialize in any of the above subjects in 
the Junior and Senior years. 

The arrangement of the courses is, of necessity, subject to such 
adjustment as will advance the best interests of the students. The 
object in each course will be to give practical and theoretical train- 
ing in fruit growing, truck farming and commercial landscape gar- 
dening and floriculture. Under the present arrangement the spec- 
ialists in each subject will have greater opportunity to keep familiar 
with the progress of their work through the practical demonstra- 
tion and experimental work in the State. 

The students will be required to do practical work throughout 
the course, and in addition, they must have spent at least two sum- 
mers or the equivalent, during the four years' course, in an ap- 
proved com.mercial establishment dealing with the subject in which 
they are specializing. The equipment of the Department is being 
steadily increased and the orchards, gardens and greenhouses of 
College and Experiment Station afford unlimited opportunities for 
practical observation. In addition, the students of each course will 
be expected to take trips to selected commercial orchards, truck 
farms, greenhouses and markets. 

The Department of Horticulture offers a four-year course lead- 
ing to the degree of Bachelor of Science, and electives in the two- 
year Course in Agriculture for proficiency in which a certificate 
is awarded.

LANGUAGES. 



professor spence. 
mr. schulz. 

The Department of Languages embraces the study of three 
branches: Latin, German and French. All students are required 
to take the courses in German or French. Students may elect to 
take Latin in the Freshman year in place of history, provided that 
they have completed the work outlined for the Sub-Freshman Class 
or its equivalent. 

The course of study in Latin is given with two ends in view- 
first, to train the mind into accurate and close methods of reason- 
ing; second, to give the student a more thorough and comprehen-

«ive knowledge of his own language than he could otherwise ac- 
quire. Special attention is paid to Latin forms and terminations 
and to the derivation of English words from Latin roots. 

So large a proportion of modern scientific literature is in Ger- 
man and French that a reading knowledge of these languages has 
become almost essential to the student pursuing advanced courses 
in the various spheres of scientific research. Instruction in these 
branches is given, therefore, to enable the student to translate in- 
telligently the works of French and German masters in the domain 
of science, for, frequently there are no English versions of theii 
works. As the student becomes more familiar with foreign scien- 
tific terms and construction, he is required to translate treatises 
bearing upon the special line of work which he may be pursuing.

MATHEMATICS. 

PROFESSOR HARRISON. 
MR. SPRINGER. 

Mathematics is the basis upon which scientific information rests 
A knowledge of the study is necessary, as much from the utilitarian 
point of view as from the mental training its acquisition gives. Its 
importance as a factor in our College course takes its rise from the 
former consideration. All instruction in this work is with a vie\^ 
to the equipping of students for the more practical work soon tc

uated in the engineering building, which contains the wood-work- 
ing and machine shops, drafting and lecture rooms, foundry and 
blacksmith shops as well as the College power plant. 

The wood-working shop contains accommodations for bench work 
and wood turning. The power machinery in this shop is a band 
and universal circular saw, five 12-inch turning lathes, one 16-inch 
by lo-foot pattern maker's lathe, a grindstone, wood trimmer, 26- 
inch wood planer and universal tool grinder. 

In the forge shops are sixteen power forges, two hand forges 
and a pressure fan and exhauster for keeping the shop free of 
smoke. There is a full assortment of smith's tools for each forge. 

The foundry is equipped with an iron cupola, which melts 1,200 
pounds of iron per hour, a brass furnace, one core-oven and the 
necessary flasks and tools. 

The machine shop equipment consists of one lo-inch speed lathe, 
one 22-inch engine-lathe with compound rest, one 12-inch combined 
foot and power lathe, tw^o 14-inch engine-lathes, one 24-inch drill 
press, one No. 4 emery tool grinder, one No. 13^ universal milling 
machine, and an assortment of vises, taps, dies, pipe-tools and meas- 



uring mstruments. 



The machinery of the pattern and machine shops is driven by a 
9 by 14-inch automatic cut off, high speed engine, built by members 
of the Junior and Senior Mechanical Engineering Classes, after 
the standard design of the Atlas engine. An 8 by 12-inch engine 
drives the machinery of the blacksmith shop and foundry. It was 
presented to the College by the City of Baltimore, and secured 
through the efforts of Rear-Admiral John D. Ford, United States 
Navy, retired.

The experimental laboratory contains: A hundred thousand 
pound Riehle combined hand and power testing machine for making 
tensile, compression, shearing and transverse tests on various kinds 
of materials, turbo-generator set, consisting of a Curtis steam tur- 
bine and thirty-five K. W. General Electric compound wound gen- 
erator for making steam and electric efficiency tests. This set is 
connected with the general lighting system of the College so that 
any time it may be tested to its capacity. It may also be used for 
lighting purposes if necessary. A cross compound condensing Cor- 
liss engine of fifty horse-power, equipped with brake, indicators, 
relief valves, reducing motion, steam and vacuum gauges, and speed 
indicator, gives ample opportunity for steam consumption and 
brake tests. This is connected with the shops, so that any time it 
may be switched on and drive them. The College power plant with 
its vacuum heating system, three one-hundred horse-power return 
tubular boilers, and two electric generating units offer unexcelled 
opportunities for experimental work. A six horse-power, four- 
cycle gasoline engine equipped with prony brake permits of making 
tests in gas engineering. 

The three drafting rooms are well equipped for practical work. 
Two of these are used by the Junior and Senior Classes, each stu- 
dent being provided with a separate desk. The third room is used 
jointly by the Freshman and Sophomore students and contains 
fifteen drawing tables^ accommodating about ninety students. 

Engineering students are to provide themselves with approved 
drawing outfit, materials and book; the cost of which during the 
Freshman Year amounts to about $15.00. The cost to other stu- 
dents taking mechanical drawing is about $5.00. The College does 
not furnish these, but they are purchased by the student and are 
his property. 

The combined blue print and dark room with its commodious 
printing frames affords splendid opportunities for sun printing, 
which is so useful to engineering students- 

Tours of Inspection. The proximity of the College to Balti- 
more, Washington and Philadelphia, with their great industrial en- 
terprises, offers unexcelled opportunities to engineering students 
to acquaint themselves practically with what is being done in mod- 



ern engineering construction. Upon trips of inspection an instruc- 
tor accompanies the class and explains the different processes, 
plants and machines.

MILITARY SCIENCE. 

first lieutenant GEORGE T. EVERETT. 

The Congress of the United States, subject to certain conditions, 
appropriates annually a generous sum for each Agricultural College 
of the United States. 



82 



One of the conditions imposed by this grant is that the students 
shall receive a course of training in Military Tactics. The Govern- 
ment depends partly upon such institutions for the great number 
of officers that would be needed in time of war to command the 
Volunteers. 

From the view-point of the student, military training develops 
patriotism, willingness to assume responsibility, knowledge of 
human nature, and physical and moral courage. It involves the 
cultivation of thought and action, the subjection of one's self to 
the restraints of an orderly, systematic life, and to a direct and 
unselfish honesty. It involves the punctilious practice of dignified 
deportment, pride in personal appearance, and looking at life from 
a simple, straightforward standpoint. It develops a youth physi- 
cally in a uniform, systematic manner, improves his health, and 
gives him that erect carriage and elastic stride, uplifted chin and 
the steady unfaltering eye that have come to be recognized the 
world over as indicating the man of military training. 

The object of military training is to teach the student to secure 
intelligent concentration of effort. The success of any man depends 
largely upon his ability to enforce his will upon those under him 
and to cause them to execute his plans with promptness and pre- 
cision. In everything involving united effort, men must be trained 
to orderly and concerted action before efficiency may be expected. 
"System" is merely discipline under another name. 

INSPECTION. 

The War Department designates an officer of the General Staff 
of the Regular Army to make an annual inspection of the Military 
Department of each of the institutions of learning in the United 
States at which an officer is regularly detailed. There are about one 
hundred such institutions. This inspector rates these schools accord- 
ing to their status and military efficiency. 



ORGANIZATION. 



The Corps of Cadets is organized as a battalion of three com- 
panies, staff and band, the drill and administration of which con- 
form as far as possible to that of the Regular Army. 



83 



INSTRUCTION. 

Instruction in the Military Department is a graduated course, 
starting with the drill that is given the recruit in the United States 
Army and working up by steps until in his senior year the student 
receives the instruction given in the United States Army to Non- 
commissioned Officers and Lieutenants. 

There are three hours of practical drill and one period of theo- 
retical instruction each week. All students are required to attend 
both the drill and instruction unless physically unfit or specially 
excused by the President of the College. The men excused for 
any reason may be required to spend the equivalent time in learn- 
ing the system of accounts, records, etc., which are used in the 
United States Army, thus fitting themselves for the clerical work 
so necessary to the Staff Corps. 

The practical drill consists of recruit drill, close order, extended 
order, bayonet exercise, calisthenics, tent pitching, advance guard, 
rear guard, outposts, infantry attack, withdrawal from position, 
and the ceremonies of parade, guard mounting, reviews and escort 
to the Colors. Rifle practice is also taught during this course as 
far as present facilities will allow. 

The theoretical instruction consists of lectures, informal talks 
and practical demonstration in the following subjects: close order, 
extended order, fire attack, security and information, marching, 
patrolling, signalling, guard duty, personal hygiene and first aid, 
target practice, camp expedients, entrenchments, map reading and 
sketching, tactical walks, war games, map problems, bridge build- 
ing, military law, military courtesy and military history and policy 
of the United States. 

With a proper degree of application, every graduate should be 
able to pass an examination for a Volunteer Commission or to 
enter the United States Army as a Second Lieutenant. 



EQUIPMENT. 

The battalion of cadets is equipped with the United States mag- 
azine rifle, caliber 30, known as the Krag-Jorgensen, with complete 
equipment of side arms, cartridge box, etc. The cadet officers and 



84 

non-commissioned staff officers are equipped with the regulation 
West Point cadet sword and sash. 

The Government also has supplied the battalion with the new 
regulation sub-calibre target rifle for gallery practice, and has been 
very liberal in the allowance of ammunition for gallery practice, 
of blank cartridges for field exercises, and of ball cartridges for 
outdoor range practice. 

Students are held strictly accountable for all arms and equip- 
ment issued to them. 

PROMOTIONS. 



The officers and non-commissioned officers of the corps are se- 
lected with reference primarily to their fitness for the duties they 
will be required to perform. Their general deportment and profi- 
ciency in academic work are also given weight in making such 
selection. 

Commissioned officers are, as a rule, selected from the Senior 
Class, sergeants from the Junior Qass, and corporals from the 
Sophomore Class. 

Cadet officers are required to serve from the beginning of the 
scholastic year up to March i, of that year. On this date readjust- 
ment of rank is made, based upon the following: Military Effi- 
ciency, as evidenced by the fall drills and winter recitations in the 
Tactical Department; Military Discipline and Soldierly Bearing; 
General Deportment. 

UNIFORM. 

The uniform worn by all members of the battalion of cadets is 
the regulation West Point fatigue uniform, and is made of the best 
Charlottesville gray cloth. The uniform consists of the gray fatigue 
blouse, trousers and cap for all military formations. By special con- 
tract with one of the largest Military Equipment houses in the 
United States, the uniform is furnished at a very low price. Meas- 
ures for this uniform are taken as soon as the student arrives at 
College, and fit is guaranteed. For summer use there must also 
be provided two gray shirts, a pair of leggins, a waist belt, and 
a black tie. 



85 

White gloves, collars, caps and other military accessories may be 
purchased at the stores near the College, or from the contractor who 
furnishes the uniforms. 

Information concerning the cost of uniforms, etc., may be found 
on page 130. 



PHYSICAL CULTURE. 



DIRECTOR BYRD. 



Owing to the unusual conditions of the last four years, which 
have compelled absolute concentration of the College work, the 
required classes in the gymnasium have been temporarily dis- 
continued. Recent appropriations by the Legislature for building 
construction will alleviate this condition and it will be only a short 
while now before the regular routine can be resumed. In the mean- 
time everything possible has been and is being done to interest the 
students of all classes in outdoor sports. The College has expended 
considerable sums of money for equipment to enable large num- 
bers of the students to take part in the several branches of outdoor 
athletics. This development is supplemented by class instruction 
in hygiene and the care of the person in relation to the physical 
and mental welfare. A complete course in corrective and general 
physical culture, to be supplemented by lectures in personal hygiene, 
is now being mapped out for use in the future. A system of exact 
measurements is to be used which will show the progress of the 
various students during each year. The course will be compulsory. 
For outline of course now given see page 112. 



SUB-COLLEGIATE INSTRUCTION. 

PROFESSOR HARRISON. 
PROFESSOR RICHARDSON. 

This Department was established in 1892, and reorganized in 
191 5; and is designed to meet the requirements of those students 



86 



who have not had the advantage of a thorough high school train- 
ing, with a view to equipping them to enter the regular collegiate 
department. 

Only such students are desired as will be able to enter the Fresh- 
man Class within a year, and who are fifteen years of age. This 
course is recommended specially to students who have not been 
to school for several years; for their progress in the regular col- 
legiate course, by virtue of such a drawback, would be seriously 
impeded. It is to be remarked that as a rule the students who have 
taken this course make excellent progress in their later college 
work. Students in this Department are subject to the same mili- 
tary regulations as other students. 

This Department will be eliminated July i, 1918. 

For outline of courses see page 112. 



VETERINARY SCIENCE. 

PROFESSOR BUCKLEY, 

This Department offers instruction in the elements of veterinary 
science. The course embraces the study of the external form as 
well as the internal structure and functions of the domesticated ani- 
mals. It is intended to supplement animal husbandry instruction, 
and does not have for its object the training of students for veter- 
inary practice. The preservation of health in animals is more aimed 
at than their restoration from disease. When studiously pursued 
the courses offered are of great value to the breeder, feeder or 
manager of live stock. 

COURSES OFFERED. 

The accompanying brief descriptions indicate the scope of the 
different courses. 

480. Anatomy and Physiology. This course embraces a gen- 
eral consideration of the structure and functions of the animal body, 
with especial reference to animal production and dairying. 

Senior Year — Second Term, 3 theoretical periods per week. 

481. Animal Diseases. A study is made of the diseases of the 
domesticated animals with emphasis upon sanitation, practical bac- 



87 

teriology, nursing, administration of medicine and use of common 
medicinal substances. The aim of this course is to enable the stu- 
dent to perceive the early appearance of diseases and care for them 
intelligently under proper veterinary supervision. 

Senior Year — Third Term, 3 theoretical and 4 practical periods 
per week. 

482. Animal Diseases. A briefer course in animal diseases is 
offered to the students in the two-year Agricultural Course. 

Second Year — Second Term, 3 theoretical and 2 practical per- 
iods per week. 



THE COLLEGE LIBRARY. 

DR. SILVESTER. 
MISS CONNER. 

The College Library may be properly regarded as one of the de- 
partments of the institution, as its aid for purposes of reference 
and its influence upon the mental development of the students must 
always be felt throughout all courses. The present quarters of the 
Library, while adequate for its immediate needs, will necessarily 
be too limited in the course of time. The reading room is well ar- 
ranged and lighted, and is in all respects comfortable and conven- 
ient. 

While the Library is not large, the collection of works has been 
carefully chosen, and the shelves contain a fair supply of works of 
reference, history, biography, essays, poetry and the standard 
works of fiction. Several thousand volumes of bound United States 
Government Reports comprise an important addition to the refer- 
ence works of the Library. Most of the leading magazines and a 
number of newspapers are subscribed for; technical periodicals and 
works of reference relating to specific branches are deposited in the 
libraries of the various departments. 

The works in the Library are classified according to the modern 
Dew^ey Decimal System of classification. As rapidly as possible 
the sets of Government Reports that are most valuable are being 
completed and catalogued. At present there are on hand completed 
to date, or nearing completion, sets of the reports and bulletins o£ 



88 



the United States Agricultural Department, the Geological Survey, 
the Fish Commission, the Smithsonian Institution, the National 
Museum, the Bureau of Ethnology, the Bureau of Education, the 
Labor Bureau, the Census Bureau and the Bureau of American 
Republics. There are also nearly completed sets of the Consular 
Reports, Special Consular Reports, the Engineers' Reports of the 
United States Army, the War of the Rebellion Records and Mes- 
sages and Documents, besides many other miscellaneous publica- 
tions of great value. Many valuable State publications are also 
on file. 

It is the aim of the Librarian to render all these valuable works 
available for easy reference by the students. 

Grateful acknov^ledgment is made to the officers of all the de- 
partments and bureaus above noted for their publications, and espe- 
cially to the United States Superintendent of Documents, through 
whose aid many public documents have been received. Thanks arc 
likewise due the following for valuable additions to the Library: 
Johns Hopkins University, the Geological Survey, the Weather 
Service, the Highway Commission, and the Bureau of Statistics 
and Information. Special thanks are due the county press for 
their liberality in sending their publications free to the Library. 



YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. 

MR. DARROW. 



Aims. 

Service, first, last and all the time is the aim of the Y. M. C. A. 
It attempts nothing through selfish motives, but through the desire 
to turn into right channels a boy's surplus energy. 

Nature. 

The Maryland State College Association is affiliated with the 
International Y. M. C. A. and membership in the local branch 
carries with it a welcome to all city and student associations, and 
during vacation periods, entitles the holder to many of the privileges 
of the city Y. M. C. A. 



89 



Officers. 

For the first time a salaried secretary is in charge of the Y. M. 
C. A. organization. He works through and with a student cabinet, 
having a President, Vice-President, Recorder, Treasurer, and chair- 
men of the following committees : Employment, Membership, Social 
Affairs, Music, Publications and Bible Study. 

The Employment Committee assists students in finding the kind 
of work they want, acting as a clearing house for employer and 
employee. 

The Membership Chairman's duties are as the title indicates. 
The Social Chairman plans receptions, banquets, and social aflPairs 
affording a pleasant evening's entertainment to all. The Music 
Chairman obtains special music for Sunday and other meetings, 
and the Publications Chairman keeps the public informed. 

Regular Meetings. 

The Bible Study Chairman organizes bible and special problem 
study classes, and endeavors to interest the student in unselfish 
ideals. 

Special speakers on both popular and religious subjects, are pro- 
vided for Sunday 3:30 meetings. The proximity to Washington 
makes it possible to obtain the best of talent, Representatives, Gov- 
ernment officials, worth-while business men, and Ministers of 
power, thus making the meetings of great value. 



Location. 

The Y. M. C. A. is located in Calvert Hall. It has beautiful 
quarters; a game room, furnished with all kinds of games, a pool 
room, a reading and writing room, and an office for the Secretary. 
A good readable line of books having a sane, helpful, moral tone 
make the reading room attractive. 

New Students. 

Receptions are given to get the new men acquainted with the 
student body and with the members of the faculty, so as to make 
them feel "at home." 



■I 



90 

New students are given special attention, warned of dangers and

A handbook is published, giving the student detailed information 
about the College, its societies and activities. Upon request it will 
be mailed to you free of charge. 

The Association welcomes at all times suggestions for its better-

COURSES OF STUDY. 



In order to systematize the work of the different departments of 
the College, and as far as possible arrange for specialization within 
limits consistent with the normal development of individual stu- 
dents, several distinct courses of study have been prepared, one of 
which the student is expected to choose upon entering the regular 
College work. 

These courses are Agricultural Education, Agronomy, Animal 
Husbandry, Horticulture, Biology, Chemistry, Canning, General 
Science, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical 
P^ngineering, Rural Engineering, and Engineering Education. 

A continuous and progressive course of work, beginning in the 
Freshman year, with a nearly uniform course for all students, and 
gradually separating in the three succeeding years until the class 
work is almost wholly specialized, has been found to be most satis- 
factory. A broad and liberal foundation in English, mathematics 
and history is laid in the Freshman and Sophomore years, and 
then the particular line of study desired is emphasized more and 
more until the end of the course. 

In addition to the regular collegiate courses, a two-year Course 
is given in Agriculture. Many electives are offered in the second 
year. 

There is also a Course in Sub-Collegiate Instruction for the benefit 
of students unable to obtain elsewhere adequate preparation for 
entrance into the Freshman Class. 

Short Winter Courses in Agriculture, Horticulture and Engineer- 
ing are given for the benefit of those who find it impossible to 
afford the time necessary for an extended course in these subjects. 

The College, in co-operation with the State Department of Educa- 
tion, conducts a six-weeks' SUMMER SCHOOL, beginning this 
year on June 20th. 

The purpose of the SUMMER SCHOOL is to provide a course 
of vocational training for teachers and prospective teachers of rural 
and graded schools. The work offered this year includes courses 
in Elementary Agriculture, Domestic Science and Art, Industrial 
Hand Work, Theory and Practice of Teaching, History of Mary- 



92 

land, State and National Constitutions, Chemistry, Physics, Survey- 

¥ 

ing, Botany, Zoology and Entomology 

A bulletin giving a full description of the courses is issued by 
the College. For full information address the Director of the 
Summer School. 

A SUMMER SCHOOL for MINISTERS will be held from 
July 24th to August 1st for those who wish to broaden their field 
of service in the communities in which they labor. Courses will 
be given in Rural Sociology, Rural Economics, Religious Pedagogy 
and Agriculture. Further information concerning these courses 
may be obtained from Professor F. B. Bomberger, Dean of the 
Division of Rural Economics and Sociology. 

A CONFERENCE on COUNTRY LIFE will be held for 
MINISTERS on August 2nd, 3rd and 4th. Leaders of national 
reputation will present matters of vital interest to the Church. 
Bulletins containing complete information concerning this Confer- 
ence may be obtained upon request from Mr. B. H. Darrow, Secre- 
tary of the Young Men's Christian Association. 

In the tabular statements of the courses the periods per week are 
given, the numbers in parenthesis denoting practical or laboratory 
periods, the others theoretical or recitation periods. 



AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION COURSE. 



I 



t 



The Course in Agricultural Education is arranged to give the stu- 
dent a broad general knowledge of agriculture, languages, science 
and pedagogy. 

Students taking this course receive practically the same work 
during the first two years as those of the other agricultural courses. 
In the Junior and Senior years the agricultural work is continued, 
in addition to the special work in pedagogy and practice teaching 
which these students receive. Enough of agriculture is included in 
the course to enable the student to carry on farm operations in a 
scientific manner. The graduate is fitted not only to teach and 
supervise the teaching of agricultural subjects, but to manage school 
demonstration farms or conduct a farm of his own. 



93 

Students taking this course will be required to spend at least 
ejo^ht weeks of the summers following the Sophomore and Junior 
rears in actual farm work on their home farms or on other ac- 
credited farms under the supervision of the College. All students 
will be required to keep notes and on their return to College to 
submit a written report of the summer's work and observations.

for the complete development of the work, yet technical enough to 
make the student feel that he is a specialist and equipped for special 
work. 

Students taking this Course will be required to spend at least 
eight weeks of the summers following the Sophomore and Junior 
years in actual farm work on their home farms or on other ac- 
credited farms under the supervision of the College. All students 
will be required to keep notes and on their return to College to

ANIMAL HUSBANDRY COURSE. 

The purpose of the Course in Animal Husbandry is to fit the 
graduate to carry out successfully the operations pertaining to gen- 
eral farming, to become an expert in the raising and feeding of live 
stock, to pursue scientific investigations along lines pertaining to 
animal husbandry, or to act in the capacity of an adviser or demon- 
strator in rural communities. Therefore, the curriculum has been 
outlined to include, in addition to the subjects necessary for the 
development of a specialist in animal husbandry, those which will 
give a broad training in agriculture and other cultural branches. 

Students taking this Course will be required to spend at least

TWO-YEAR AGRICULTURAL COURSE. 

A large number of young men seeking to better themselves in 
their chosen profession of farming are calling for instruction in 
those courses pertaining to practical agriculture. Many of them 
have neither the time nor means at hand to take the full four-year 
Course, but while away in school they wish to gain the greatest pos- 
sible amount of instruction and assistance which is particularly ap- 



97 

rlicable to the farm. They realize that the farm can no longer be 
run in the old-time haphazard way, that there is a demand for skill 
and the highest order of intelligence to make a success on the farm, 
as in any other line of human endeavor, and that brains must be

♦A description of the courses given will be found at the end of courses offered 
In each Department Involved. 

II The student, after consultation with the Professor in charge of the Course, 
will elect from the courses offered in agronomy, animal industry and horticulture 
a sufficient number of subjects to make up the required number of periods. 

planted with each little seed, and also put into the feeding trough 
for the animal. To meet the demand for instruction along these 
lines, and for a better understanding of the underlying principles of 
successful agriculture, a short course of two years has been pro- 
vided. 

It embraces much of the technical work of the four-year Course, 
and is especially designed to lay a foundation that will secure suc- 
cess in practical farming, which, as it must be conducted today, is a 
union of many interests. To enter this Course the applicant must 
l>e not less than sixteen years of age and must satisfy the College 
authorities by examination or otherwise that he has preparation 
at least equal to the work of the seventh grade of the Maryland 
public schools. 



™

Students taking this Course are required to spend not less thai 
ten weeks during the summer between the First and Second yeai 
in actual farm work on some accredited farm under the supervisioi 
of the College.

Second week- 



SHORT WINTER COURSES. 

For men and women who can spare from one to ten weeks only 
from their home duties the College offers a series of short courses] 
occupying from one to two weeks each, beginning after the Christ- 
mas vacation. 

For 19 1 7 the arrangement will be: 

First week — Soils and Fertilizers. 

j Farm Crops. 
I Domestic Science. 

Third week — Poultry Husbandry. 

Fourth and fifth week — Horticulture. 

Sixth week — Horses and Beef Cattle. 

Seventh week — Swine and Sheep Husbandry. 

Eighth week — Dairy Husbandry. 

Ninth week — Farm Implements and Motors. 

Tenth week — Farm Carpentry, Blacksmithing and Pipe Fitting. 

Experience has demonstrated the advantage of dividing the work 
into short periods, during which time the attention of the student 
is engrossed wholly with one subject. It enables the student to 
concentrate his eflforts and affords opportunity for those who are 
interested in but one or two subjects, such as poultry husbandry or 
domestic science, for example, to take what they desire with the 
greatest economy of time. 

No charge is made to short course students for the use of labora- 
tories. Good board at moderate rates can be secured in the neigh- 
borhood. For more detailed information regarding these courses, 
write for bulletin and folders.

cialize in either pomology, vegetable culture or landscape gardening 
and floriculture. 

These courses are designed to fit the student for conducting prac- 
tical operations in horticulture on the farm, or to continue scientific 
research work and teaching in his chosen field. Practical work is 
made a prominent feature of the course. In the Freshman and 
Sophomore years the work is not materially different from that of 
the Agricultural and Biological Courses, as all students are required 
to take certain fundamental subjects. In the Jimior and Senior 
years the courses become specialized. 

The College and Experiment Station farm, orchards, green- 
houses, etc., together with the close proximity of the Institution to 
the United States Department of Agriculture greenhouses and ex- 
periment farms, offer unusual opportunities to the students in horti- 
culture. 



BIOLOGICAL COURSE. 

The Biological Course, while offering a general education and 
special training in the natural sciences, is outlined in particular for 
those who wish to specialize in some branch of botany or zoolog}\ 
It aims to fit men for practical work in the field of plant pathology 
and entomology, but will also give training for special work in the 
pure sciences. 

In addition, this Course is specially valuable in preparing stu- 
dents who wish to enter the medical profession, particularly those 
who expect to enter the highest grade medical schools, which require 
for entrance a four year collegiate course in sciences and languages. 
These students will be required to substitute organic chemistry 
for some subject given in the regular Biological Course. 

There are many opportunities for scientific workers in connection 
with the Agricultural investigations of the Federal Government and 
of the State Experiment Stations, as well as in the State inspection 
work, for which this Course gives training. In fact, it is now diffi- 
cult to secure men trained for such work. Full opportunity is given 
for the student to develop his natural resources and to learn to do 
work on his own responsibility. A large part of his time is spent 
in both practical and theoretical biological studies, without neglect- 



lOI 



ing the cultural studies which are a necessary foundation for every 
specialist.

CHEMICAL COURSE. 

The Course in Chemistry differs but little from the other courses 
until the beginning of the Sophomore Year and the work in the 
Freshman Year of any of the four-year courses will prepare for 



102 



it, as the amount of chemistry is the same in all courses to the be- 
ginning of the Second Term of the Sophomore year and the de- 
. mands on the agricultural or technical chemist are now so varied 
that a foundation with more of the essentials of the agricultural 
or the engineering courses is often desirable. 

Beginning with the Second Term of the Sophomore year the 
major part of the student's time is devoted to chemistry, the prac- 
tical work in the laboratory occupying approximately half of his 
time. The course is essentially a course in agricultural chemistry, 
fitting the graduate for positions in agricultural colleges, experi- 
ment stations and the United States Department of Agriculture.

CANNING COURSE. 

The great importance of the canning industry in Maryland ; the 
fact that it is, to a great extent, an agricultural industry, and the 
further fact that the suggestion of a Course has met with so many 
hearty indorsements from prominent canners, has caused the College 
authorities to establish a Course in Canning, in order that young 
men interested may have an opportunity to become acquainted with 
the underlying sciences, and at the same time secure a liberal edu- 
cation.

104 

During the first two years of the Course the studies will not diffei 
much from those of the other courses. After this a large part ol 
the student's time will be occupied with sciences relating directly! 
to the canning industry, such as bacteriology, chemistry, agriculture,] 
horticulture, and canning technology. This latter will cover a wide 
range and will include the theory and practice of canning in various 
lines, experimental work, and lectures from persons of national repu- 
tation. Assistance in these lectures has been promised by officers 
of the National Canners' Association and others. 

A canning expert is to be engaged to take charge of the technical 
instruction in canning, which will include both theoretical and lab- 
oratory work. 

Routine and factory experience are expected to be gained by 
students spending at least two summers, usually devoted to vacation, 
in a canning factory. 



GENERAL SCIENCE COURSE. 






'I lit 



The General Science Course is offered to those young men who 
have not chosen as their vocation in life any of the technical profes- 
sions, but who are seeking for such general culture as will fit them 
to become, after graduation, useful members of society. Young 
men desiring to study law, or medicine, or the liberal arts, or to 
become teachers, will find in the curriculum of this Course a highly 
satisfactory preparation for such work. While emphasis has been 
placed upon subjects, such as English, language, literature, history, 
mathematics, etc., the natural sciences occupy a prominent place 
m the Course and the range of electives will enable each to choose 
for himself, under certain necessary regulations, such a group of 
studies as will be best adapted to his own peculiar requirements. 

A wide range of electives is offered in order to meet as far as 
possible the needs of every student. At the opening of the session 
the student must select with the approval of the Dean of the Division 
a consistent group of courses for the year. No change may be 
made in this group later in the session except with the approval of 
the Dean.

tion and operation of electrical machines, but who have a thorough 
knowledge of the principles and laws controlling the phenomena 
and forces with which they have to deal. 

The general plan of the Course is to make the student thoroughly 
acquainted with the scientific laws which are the basis of the pro- 
fession, and at the same time to train him to adapt the laws to prac- 
tice, to use his own judgment, and to apply honest and accurate 
methods in all his work. 

The curriculum, as outlined, includes those studies which provide 
a broad general culture, as well as a good foundation for the engi- 
neering work which follows. From the beginning of the Second 
Term of the Sophomore year the electrical training extends con- 
tinuously throughout the Course. 



MECHANICAL ENGINEERING COURSE. 

The curriculum of the several years of this Course is outlined 
so as to give general culture as well as a proper foundation for the 
profession of Mechanical Engineer. 

Young men not having a natural taste for mathematics and the 
handling of tools are advised not to pursue this Course. The prac- 
tical work of this Course is most thorough. The student is familiar- 
ized from the first with the reading of engineering drawings and 
with the use of tools and implements used in wood and iron work, 
fie is given daily practice in the shops and is encouraged to develop 
whatever inventive talent he may have. Results have shown that 
students completing this Course have no difficulty in securing em- 
ployment immediately upon graduation in the field of mechanics or 
mechanical engineering.

This Course is offered to students who wish to become proficient 
in such branches of engineering as relate in particular to the prob- 
lems of rural communities. The broad training offered in engineer- 
ing is supplemented by instruction in those agricultural subjects 
which will give the student a greater breadth of view concerning 
rural problems requiring the services of an engineer, and, if he 
should elect to settle in the country for the practice of his profession,

ENGINEERING EDUCATION COURSE. 

A substantial demand for teachers of the Manual Arts who have 
had a broad training in engineering, has led to the establishment of 
this Course. In addition to the instruction in engineering, a 
thorough training in pedagogy is offered. Since the need for such 



Ill 



teachers is felt in urban and in rural communities, some opportunity 
is given the student when he enters the Senior Class, to select those 
subjects in engineering which will best fit him for the solution of the 
problems of the community in which he wishes to practice his pro- 
fession.

GENERAL INFORMATION. 

ADMISSION TO COLLEGE 
GENERAL STATEMENT. 

A candidate for admission to the College must present, together 
with his Scholastic Record, a certificate of good moral character; 
and if the candidate be from another school or college, the certifi- 
cate must show that he left such institution in good standing. 

METHOD OF ADMISSION. 

There are two methods of gaining admission to the Freshman 
Class : 

(i.) By Certificate. — The College will accept certificates from ap- 
proved high schools of Maryland and the District of Columbia, and 
from accredited academies and preparatory schools of this State and 
other States. The certificates presented by the candidate must be 
officially certified by the principal of the school attended and must 
state in detail the work completed by the candidate. 

Blank certificates conveniently arranged for the desired data will 
be sent upon application. 

All admissions by certificates are regarded as merely provisional. 
That is, while a student presenting a proper certificate is admitted 
to such standing as it shows him entitled to, he may be required to 
take a special examination or to do special work in any subject 
in which his preparation proves to be unsatisfactory; or if, after 
a fair trial, he fails to maintain a standing in the class to which 
he was admitted, he may be dropped to a lower class. 

(2.) By Examination. — Candidates not admitted by certificate 
will be required to stand written examinations upon the entrance 
subjects. These examinations will be held for 1916 on June 7th 
and 8th, and September 12th and 13th. 

UNITS REQUIRED FOR ADMISSION. 

A unit designates not less than four or five "periods'* of class- 
room work of eight or ten "periods'' of laboratory work per week, 
continued throughout the school year, each "period'* being not less 
than forty minutes. 



IN 



114 

An applicant for admission to the Freshman Class must offer' 
credit for fifteen (15) units of high school or other secondary school 
work. The units covering the fundamental subjects are specifically 
designated. The others may be selected from the tabulated list of 
electives. 

A deficiency of three units will be allowed a candidate as condi- 
tions, but such conditions must be removed by the end of the Schol- 
astic Year in which the candidate is admitted.

* students electing Latin in Freshman Class must offer two (2) units in Latin. 
♦♦It is preferred that Solid Geometry rather than Plane Trigonometry be offered. 

The high schools of the State are primarily local institutions in 
which the curricula must be adapted to the needs of their respective 
communities. Therefore, in the correlation of their courses of study 
with the College Entrance Requirements, it has been necessary to 
permit prospective students to make a selection of a limited number 
of credits from the given list of electives.

SUGGESTIONS FOR PREPARATION IN THE REQUIRED SUBJECTS. 

MATHEMATICS. 

Algebra to Quadratics. (One unit.) As treated in the alge- 
bras of Wells, Wentworth, Tanner, Fine, or an equivalent. The 
four fundamental operations; factoring; highest common factor 
and least common multiple; fractions (including their conception 
as ratios) and complex fractions; powers and roots; the solution 
of linear equations, both numerical and literal, and of problems 
depending on linear equations; radicals and the theory of expo- 
nents; and the solution of simple second degree equations in one 
unknown quantity by factoring. 

Algebra from Quadratics. (One-half unit.) As treated in 
the algebras of Wells, Wentworth, Tanner, Fine, or an equivalent. 
Equations with one or more unknown quantities, to be solved by 
the methods of linear or quadratic equations ; ratio, proportion and 
variation; variables and limits; properties of series, including the 



ii6 



binomial theorem for positive integral exponents, and the formu- 
las for the nth term and sum of the terms of arithmetical and geo- 
metrical progressions with applications ; logarithms. 

Plane Geometry. (One unit.) As treated by Wentworth, Mc- 
Mahon, Phillips and Fisher, or an equivalent. The usual theorems 
and constructions, including the general properties of plane recti- 
linear figures, the circle and measurement of angles, similar poly- 
gons, areas, regular polygons and the measurement of the circle; 
the solution of original exercises, including loci problems; and the 
application to the mensuration of lines and plane surfaces. The 
student should be able to prove every statement made, going back 
step by step until it rests upon primary definitions or axioms. 

Solid Geometry. (One-half unit.) As treated in Wentworth's 
or an equivalent text-book. In addition to the discussion of general 
theorems, special attention should be paid to the solution of problems. 

Plane Trigonometry. (One-half unit.) This course should 
cover the field of plane trigonometry as given in Wentworth's or an 
equivalent text-book. It should include the solution of right and 
oblique triangles and special emphasis should be placed on the solu- 
tion of practical problems, trigonometric identities, and trigono- 
metric equations. 

Farm Accounts. (One-half unit.) This course should extend 
over one-half year and treat of bookkeeping as it relates to farm life. 



ENGLISH. 

Preparation in English has two main objects: (i), command of 
correct and clear English, spoken and written; (2), power to read 
with intelligence and appreciation. 

To secure the first end, training in grammar and the simple 
principles of rhetoric and the writing of frequent compositions are 
essential. The candidate must be able to spell, capitalize and punctu- 
ate correctly. He must show a practical knowledge of the essentials 
of English grammar, including ordinary grammatical terminology, 
inflection, syntax, the use of phrases and clauses ; a thorough train- 
ing in the construction of the sentence; and familiarity with the 
simpler principles of paragraph division and structure. 



117 

To secure the second end the candidate is required to read the 
works named below under A and B. The list is intended to g^ve 
the candidate the opportunity of reading, under intelligent direc- 
tion, a number of important pieces of literature. 

English A. For reading and practice. (One and one-half units.) 
The candidate should read the works prescribed below with a view 
to understanding and enjoying them. He will be expected to show 
a reasonable degree of familiarity with their substance, and will be 
required to have a general knowledge of the History of English 
and American Literature. 

For students entering in 1916: Shakespeare's "Merchant of Ven- 
ice," "As You Like It,'' and "Julius Caesar" ; Addison's "Sir Roger 
de Coverley Papers"; Scott's "Ivanhoe"; Goldsmith's "Vicar of 
Wakefield" ; Irving's "Sketch Book" ; Macaulay's "Lays of Ancient 
Rome" ; Longef ellow's "Evangeline" ; Lowell's "Vision of Sir Laun- 
fal" ; Foe's "Raven" ; Eliot's "Silas Marner" ; Gray's "Elegy Writ- 
ten in a Country Churchyard"; and such other texts as are pre- 
scribed by the State Board of Education in the course of study 
for the high schools of Maryland. 

English B. For study and practice. (One and one-half units.) 
The candidate should read the books presented below with the view 
of acquiring such knowledge of their contents as will enable him 
to answer specific questions with accuracy and some detail. The 
examination is not designed, however, to require minute drill in 
difficulties of verbal expression, unimportant allusions and tech- 
nical details. 

For students entering in 1916: Shakespeare's "Macbeth"; Mil- 
ton's "L' Allegro," "II Penseroso," and "Comus" ; Macaulay's Essay 
on Johnson or Addison, or Carlyle's Essay on Burns ; Washington's 
Farewell Address and Webster's First Bunker Hill Oration or 
Burke's Speech on Conciliation with America. 

HISTORY. 

Ancient History to 300 A. D. (One unit.) If a single text- 
book is used, it should be West's Ancient World, Wolfson's Essen- 
tials in Ancient History, Morey's Outlines of Ancient History, or 
an equivalent.

covery, exploration and settlement of America; the colonial policy 
of England, culminating in the Revolution; the political, economic 
and social history of the United States since the adoption of the 
Constitution. 

The entrance examinations in History will be so framed as to 
require comparison and the use of the judgment, rather than the 
mere use of the memory. 

FOREIGN LANGUAGE. 

Latin. First Year. (One unit.) First Latin Book completed. 

Second Year. (One unit.) Three Books of Caesar, or an equiv- 
alent.

gain a comprehensive and connected view of the most important 
facts of elementary chemistry. The subjects should be attempted 
only in schools which possess an adequate equipment; laboratory 
work is essential and original notes must be submitted; more im- 
portance will attach to descriptive chemistry than to analytical, and 
the student should become as familiar as possible with the com- 
monest non-metals and metals, as well as their simpler compounds. 

Agriculture. (One-half to three units.) Courses in Agriculture 
should include class, laboratory, and field work in Soils and Fertil- 
izers, Farm Crops, Farm Animals, and Horticulture. A special text

statement from his instructor, setting forth the kind and amount 
of work done. 

Drawing. (One-half to one unit.) A candidate must present a 
detailed statement from his instructor showing the kind and amount 
of work done and submit drawings done by himself. 

ADMISSION TO OTHER CLASSES. 

Applicants for Advanced Standing in any course, in addition 
to satisfying the requirements for admission to the Freshman Qass, 
must pass an examination in the studies which have been pursued 
by the class for which they are candidates. Work done at a stand- 
ard college is accepted when properly certified and found on exam- 
ination to be equivalent in extent and quality to that required at 
this College. 

Examinations for Admission to Any Higher Class will be 
held at the College in June and September at the same times as 
examinations for admission to the Freshman Class. 

Candidates for the Two- Year Course in Agriculture must 
be at least i6 years of age. They are also required to present 
certificates or pass examinations in subjects which are at least 
equivalent to those given in the seventh grade of the Maryland 
Public Schools. 

Candidates for the Sub-Freshman Class will be required to 
present certificates or to pass examinations in subjects as follows: 
Algebra as far as quadratics; two years of high school English or 



121 



its equivalent, and four units in other subjects taught in the Mary- 
land High Schools which are not given in the Sub-Freshman Class. 
Students from newly acquired territory or any foreign country 
must have a local guardian appointed with parental powers, with 
whom the President can deal in any case of emergency. Students 
who cannot speak English are not desired, and are advised that 
satisfactory progress at this College on their part cannot be 
achieved until they have familiarized themselves partly, at least, 
with the English language. 



EXAMINATIONS AND PROMOTIONS. 

In order to pass from one class to the next higher, a student is 
required to pass an examination in each study pursued, by a mark 
of at least sixty per cent., and to have a combined mark in each 
branch (daily and examination) of at least seventy per cent. 

A student will not be promoted if it is manifest that he cannot 
pursue successfully the advanced work. 



REPORTS. 

Detailed reports are sent to parents and guardians at the end of 
every quarter. These give the grade of the student in every branch 
of study, his attendance record and his conduct record w^th com- 
ment by the President upon each item. 

In addition to this, monthly reports are issued for October, No- 
vember, January, February and April. These give general infor- 
mation as to scholarship, conduct, attendance and health, and call 
attention to deficiency in any one of these particulars. 



GRADUATION AND DEGREES. 

Degrees are granted by the Board of Trustees upon the recom- 
mendation of the Faculty.

SCHOLARSHIPS. 



High-School Scholarships. — To encourage worthy young men 
who desire a Collegiate Education, the Board of Trustees has estab- 
lished for each High School in Maryland and the District of Colum- 
bia, one scholarship each year* to be awarded under the following 
conditions : 

I. — ^The person awarded a scholarship must be a graduate of a 
high school and qualified to enter the Freshman Qass (See Entrance 
Requirements, page 114), and must be of approved moral char- 
acter and at least 15 years of age. 

2. — The appointment to a scholarship shall be made by the School 
Superintendent, upon the recommendation and certification of the 
Principal of the High School. 

The Principal of the High School may recommend one or more 
persons for appointment, with information as to the merits of each 
case. In making appointments, not only class standing, but inabil- 



•This plan will be gradually put into effect as tbe present scholarships become 
vacant. 



125 



ity to meet the financial expenses of an education should be given 
consideration. 

3. — The appointment shall be made for the term normally re- 
quired to complete the course selected. 

4.— Each scholarship has the value of $50,00 per year. This 
amount will be credited on the holder's account. 

5.— The scholarship will be forfeited by persistent indiflFerence to 
scholastic work or by repeated disregard of the rules of discipline 
of the College. 

6. — The scholarship will be forfeited in case the holder fails of 
promotion at the end of any scholastic year, unless there are extenu- 
ating circumstances. 

Preparatory School Scholarships. There has also been es- 
tablished one scholarship each year for graduates of each Prepara- 
tory School in Maryland and the District of Q)lumbia in which 
the standard is of such a character as to qualify the appointee for 
entrance to the Freshman Class. The conditions governing these 
scholarships are the same as for the High Schools except that the 
appointment shall be made by the Principal of the Preparatory 
School. 

County Scholarships. — Counties which do not have a high 
school will be given one $50.00 scholarship each year, and the recipi- 
ent may enter the Sub-Freshman class ( See Entrance Requirements, 
page 120). The appointment to the scholarship is made by the 
County Superintendent after a competitive examination. In other 
respects the regulations governing this scholarship are the same 
as for the high-school scholarships. 

Industrial Scholarships. For the encouragement of tvorthy 
young men of limited means towards getting a College education, 
a limited number of industrial scholarships have been established by 
the Board of Trustees to be awarded under the following con- 
ditions : 

I. — The number of scholarships will depend upon the amount ol 
service required. 

2. — The value of the scholarship will be graduated according to 
Ae amount and character of the work performed, and will range

FACILITIES FOR RELIGIOUS WORSHIP. 

The College is undenominational in character. The daily exer- 
cises of the College include religious worship in the College Chapel. 

Students are encouraged to attend the church of their choice on 
Sunday mornings. There is an Episcopal church at College Park; 
and at Berwyn, one mile north, and at Riverdale, one mile south, 
are Presbyterian churches. In Hyattsville, two miles south, may be 
found Catholic, Episcopal, Presbyterian, Baptist and Methodist 
churches. In the city of Washington are churches of all denomi- 
nations, and students may attend service in this city on Sunday 
mornings. Parents are urged to insist upon their sons attending 
the church of the faith of their parents.

COLLEGE REGULATIONS. 

The attention of parents is earnestly called to the following rules 
in force at this College: The College authorities can succeed in 
conferring the maximum amount of training upon the student only 
with and by the active support and earnest co-operation of the par- 
ent. The President of the College is always ready and willing to 
discuss with parent or guardian any failures in a student's rec- 
ord, and correspondence on this subject is always appreciated. 

No student will be accepted as a matriculate until the contract 
card containing the following agreement for matriculation is signed 
by parent or guardian, and received by the President of the Col- 
lege. 

It is understood that the President of the College as the execu- 
tive of the same, and acting for the Board of Trustees, a party^^ 
this contract, has the right to ask the withdrawal of a student at 
any time, when in his judgment such withdrawal may be necessary 
either for the interest of the young man or the institution which he 
attends. It is further understood that a parent or guardian can 
at any time withdraw his son or ward, subject to regulations herein 
set forth. 

A student manifesting indifference to the observance of the rules 
and regulations of the institution, or wanting in proper attention 
to the preparation of his work, will be cautioned to improve. Fail- 
ing to do so his parents, upon notice given by the President, must 
withdraw their son. 

A special pledge to refrain from what is popularly knov/n as 
''hazing,'* and taking unfair means in examinations is required of 
every applicant for entrance, before he will be allowed to matricu- 
late. Parents should impress upon their sons that failure to live 
np to this pledge is a dishonor which unfits them to be longer stu- 
dents of the College. "Hasing'* is invariably punished by instant 
dismissal. 

Frequent absences from the College are invariably of great dis- 
advantage to the student, in breaking in upon the continuity of his 
work and in distracting his mind from the main purpose of his at- 
tendance at the institution. Parents are therefore earnestly asked 
to refrain from granting frequent requests to leave the College, 



1 



128 

Students will not be permitted to leave classes to answer telephone 
calls, unless they are urgent. 

Students will not be permitted to make contracts or to sell any 
article to their associates without the approval of the President. 

The College will not be responsible for articles left in the dormi- 
tories during vacation, nor for valuables left by students in their 
rooms at any time. They should be deposited with the College 
Treasurer, who will place them in the College safe and give a re- 
ceipt therefor. 

RULES ON COLLEGIATE ROUTINE, ENDORSED BY THE FACULTY. 

1. A student may not change his course of study unless at the written re- 
quest of his parent or guardian, and after said request has been endorsed by 
the head of the course abandoned, and the head of the course requested, and 
approved by the Committee on Courses. 

2. Examinations to make up conditions acquired In any term will be gtven 
only on the mornings and afternoons of certain Saturdays in the following term 
set apart for this purpose, and at such dates as shall be provided for entrance 
examinations at the beginning of the scholastic year. On these dates students 
having conditions will be expected to take the examinations as scheduled and 
will be permitted to do so without the payment of a fee. Should, for any reason, 
an examination be requested at any other time, a charge of $1.00 will be made 
for each subject on which the applicant is examined, provided that all such spe- 
cial examinations shall be authorized by the faculty. 

3. To attain proficiency a student must make an examination grade of 60 
per cent. : also a term average of 70 per cent. In case of failure, upon re-ex- 
amination a grade of 70 per cent, is required. 

4. A credit period is one theoretical or two practical periods per week for 
one term. 

5. A student may not be promoted if conditioned in more than one-fifth of 
the credit periods required for one year's work, provided that no student may 
be promoted with more than one condition in an^ one department. 

6. A student may not be promoted if he has any conditions of more than 
a year outstanding. 

7. Any student who uses unfair means in examination will render himself 
liable to dismissal. 

8. A student is subiect to an oral examination at any time within ten days 
after a written examination. 

9. An examination paper, containing erasures or showing alterations, may 
be rejected at the discretion of the Professor in charge, and a new examination 
ordered. 

10. In computing term averages the daily grade is computed at 2, and the 
examination grade at 1. 

11. The yearly averages in all studies is computed by giving each subject 
a weight according to the mean number of periods per week involved ; theo- 
retical periods being given a value of 2, practical periods 1. 

12. Senior students must submit subjects for graduating theses prior to 
February 1st, and all theses for graduation must be completed prior to May 15th. 

13. No special courses are permitted save by consent of the Committee on 
Courses. In case consent is granted for a special course, the certificate awarded 
attesting work will not have the College seal nor the signature of the Chairman 
of the Board.

EXPENSES. 

Summary. The details concerning the items of expense incurred 
by a student attending the College will be found in the paragraphs 
immediately following the tabmlated summary. Although the cost 
of board and lodging for students living outside of the College 
Dormitories is not given, it should not vary in any marked degree 
from the amount shown. Extravagance is discouraged, but no at- 
tempt is made to stipulate the amount which should be allowed for 
incidental personal expenses. It is suggested, however, that for 
members of the lower classes in particular the weekly allowance 
for spending money at College be no greater than it is at home. 
Certain fees which do not apply to all students, such as the Diploma 
fee, have been omitted from the summary.

four year and two year Courses for outfit, material used, and ordi- 
nary wear and tear in the courses involving work in the laboratory, 
shop, or field. As this fee is small and generally covers only in 
part the actual outlay, no portion of it will be returned. An extra

rives at the College and fit is guaranteed. 



131 



A deposit of at least 25 per cent, for this uniform must be made 
with the Treasurer when the measure is taken, as no uniforms will 
be ordered until the money has been deposited for the same. The

is paid for until it is approved by the Professor of Military Science 
and Tactics.

Payments on this account are to be made as follows : $75.00 on 
entrance, $60.00 at the beginning of the second term, and $55.00 at 
the beginning of the third term. 

Any student who has not paid for his room, board, and laundry 
within five (5) days after the date upon which payment is due will 
be required to give up his room in the dormitory and will be ex- 
cluded from the dining hall until payment is made. 

Additional Information. — A deposit of $10.00 is required of 
each student desiring to reserve a room in one of the College 
l^ormitories. Room reservations will be made on and after June 
1st of each year until all the available rooms are taken. Unless 
special arrangements are made all reservations will be canceled on 
the opening day in September. The deposit of $10.00 which nor- 
mally will be credited to the account of the student, will be for- 
feited if he fails to report in September. No special room may 
be reserved, as all of them afford approximately the same comfort 



132 



m 



and convenience. An effort is made, however, to comply with 
the desire of the student making a reservation in so far as the 
conditions will permit. Other things being equal, old students are 
given the preference in the assignment of rooms. 

Students entering College after November ist or withdrawing 
prior to the close of the Scholastic Year will be required to pay 
for the time they are in attendance during the incomplete term as 
follows : 

The rate of fixed charges is $7.00 per month. 
The rate for room, board, and laundry is $25.00 per 
month. 

All other charges are as previously indicated. 
Students withdrawing more than two weeks after en- 
trance will be charged for at least one month's attendance. 
Students withdrawing less than two weeks after en- 
trance will be charged at the rate of $2.00 per day. 
Students rooming outside may obtain board and laundry from 
the College at the same rates as those living in the College Dor- 
mitories. 

Day students may get lunch at noon at the lunch counter at 
nominal prices. 

Charges against students are continued until formal withdrawal 
has been made. 

No student will be promoted to another class, and no diploma 
will be conferred upon, nor any certificate issued to a student who 
is in arrears in his account with the College. 

In cases of illness, requiring a special nurse and medical atten- 
tion, the expenses must be borne by the student. 

Students will be admitted free of cost to membership in College 
Athletic Association. 

All College property in the possession of the individual student, 
such as his room, furniture, books, apparatus and military equip- 
ment, will be charged against him, and the parent or guardian must 
assume responsibility for its return without abuse to the proper 
department at the end of each scholastic year, at which time the ac- 
count will be cancelled. If abused, the cost of replacing or repair- 
ing the abused articles must be paid by the parent or guardian. 



133 

Damage to College property in public places in the building and 
on the grounds by the student will be charged to the whole student 
body, pro rata, unless the offender is known. In such cases, the 
whole expense of repairing or replacing the damaged property will 
be charged to the parent or guardian of the offending party. The 
matriculation of a student is evidence of the acceptance of this 
regulation. 

All students assigned to Dormitories are required to provide 
themselves with the following articles, to be brought from home 
or purchased on arrival : 

1 pair blankets (for single bed, 3 ft.x6 ft.). 

2 pairs sheets (for single bed). 
4 pillow cases. 

6 towels. 

8 table napkins. 

1 pillow. 

2 clothes bags.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS. 



Medals. — The authorities of the Institution take this opportu- 
nity to express their appreciation of the courtesy of their friends in 
establishing the following, for competition : 

William Pinkney Whyte Medal, for excellence in Oratory, offered 
by Hon. Isaac Lobe Straus, of Baltimore, Md. 

Winfield Scott Schley prize, for excellence In Oratory, offered 
by B. H. Warner, Esq., of Kensington, Md. 

James Douglas Goddard Memorial Medal, to student of Prince 
George's county making the highest average in studies, offered by 
his sister, Mrs. Annie K. Goddard James, of Washington, D. C.

Debate, offered by Dr. H. J. Patterson, of College Park, Md. 



134 



STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS. 

Students' clubs for religious, social, literary and athletic pur- 
poses are encouraged as a means of creating class and college pride, 
and developing an esprit de corps among the students. Each class 
has its own organization, in which matters relating to the class are 
discussed and directed. Officers are elected and the unity of the 
class preserved. This has been found to be a decided aid to disci- 
pline and tends to raise the standard of student honor. 



YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. 

Much encouraging work has been done by this organization dur- 
ing the past year, and gratifying interest has been shown in the 
meetings. 

OFFICERS. 

President, H. B. Derrick. 
Vice-President, E. A. Taylor. 
Recorder, K. E. Smith. 
Treasurer, R. S. Dearstyne. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

These societies are invaluable adjuncts to college work. Through 
them a knowledge of parliamentary law is gained, as well as a readi- 
ness of expression and activity in thought, qualities particularly 
valuable to the American citizen. 

The literary society work is under the general supervision of the 
Professor of Public Speaking, who is always ready to advise with 
the members in matters of parliamentary law and train them in 
the delivery of their orations and debates.

ENGINEERING SOCIETY. 

One of the newest and most beneficial additions to M. S. C. A. 
is the Engineering Society. Organized in September, 1912, it 
proved an immediate success, gratifying a long-felt and much- 
needed want on the part of the engineering students. The general 
object of the Society is the cultivation of a more active interest in 
engineering work, while its special aim is to give the student the 
opportunity to discuss the line of work in which he is interested and 
to become more accustomed to presenting his ideas. Inasmuch as 
the Society takes in all members of the Senior and Junior Qasses 
in the Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Courses, a larger 
opportunity for acquiring technical knowledge outside of one's 
own course is offered. 

The Society meets twice a month. Papers are presented at 
alternate meetings by Engineers in practice and by the students 

themselves. 

OFFICERS. 

President, G. B. D. Gray. 
Vice-President, E. R. Hindman. 
Secretary-Treasurer, A. V. Williams. 



THE LIEBIG CHEMICAL SOCIETY. 

The Liebig Chemical Society was organized to satisfy a much- 
felt need. The object of the Society is to have the various chemical 
problems of the day, discussed by men who have specialized in the 
different branches of Chemistry, or by the members themselves. 
This tends to develop a keener interest in Chemistry, and also to- 
broaden the student along Chemical lines. 



136 

Membership in this Society is open to all members of the Sopho- 
more, Junior and Senior Classes, who are specializing in Chemistry.

aged and supported by the President and Faculty. The entertain- 
ments have been marked by a spirit which emphasizes the wisdom 
of its organization and justifies its encouragement.

ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION. 

The Athletic Association is an organization composed of the 
student body, with membership open to the Alumni Association, 
the Faculty, and Board of Trustees. It is an incorporated body 
with a governing board of seven. The object of the Association 
is the promotion of athletics in general, the supervision of all ath- 
letic exercises and sports, and the development of athletic and Col- 
lege spirit. The management of the Association is vested in a 
board of seven, on which are : the Director of Athletics ; two 
members of the Alumni Association (elected at the annual meeting 
of that body) ; two members of the Faculty, appointed by the 






138 

President of the College, and two members of the student body,! 
elected at an annual meeting of the Athletic Association. The offi- 
cers of the Association are students. Eligibility of students fori 
membership on teams in intercollegiate competition is determined 
on a very strict basis in the By-Laws.

ATHLETIC COUNCIL. 

The Athletic Council, in conjunction with the Student Athletic 
Association, manages all athletic affairs. It consists of seven mem- 
bers of the Faculty, appointed by the President, and five students, 
namely, the managers of the football, baseball, track and tennis 
teams, and the President of the Athletic Association. 



THE ORATORICAL ASSOCIATION OF MARYLAND COLLEGES. 

The Maryland State College of Agriculture is a member of this 
Association, which is composed of St. John's College, Washington 
College, Western Maryland College and Maryland State College of 
Agriculture. Contests are held annually at these colleges in rota- 
tion, and a marked improvement is to be observed as a result of its 
organization. 

BOARD OF PROCTORS. 

This Board consists of a limited number of Senior students who 
have charge of the students in dormitory and on the campus. They 
adjust all minor matters of discipline, grant temporary leaves of 
absence, inspect student quarters and are responsible for the general 
order and physical condition of the dormitories.

STUDENTS' CONFERENCE COMMITTEE. 

This Committee is composed of a certain number of representa- 
tives from each class and a number of the members of the Faculty. 
The object of this Committee is to establish a definite relationship 
between the Faculty and the student body. 

COUNTY CLUBS. 

These Clubs are formed for the purpose of bringing together 
students from the same County to discuss the affairs of the County. 
From these Clubs the students acquire valuable knowledge con- 
cerning their home County. 



THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION. 

An Institution can largely be judged by the character of its 
Alumni. Their success in life is the Institution's pride. The work 
of the Alumni of a College is its greatest asset. M. S. C. A. is fortu- 
nate in having among its Alumni, men who have attained notable 
achievements in Agriculture, Engineering and Science. M. S. C. A. 
Alumni can be found holding prominent positions in all walks of 
life. 

While for many years the Alumni, through their Association, 
have taken an active interest in the growth and development of the 
Institution, it is pleasing to state that this interest has been greatly 
increased during the past two or three years and since the recent 
great fire at the College, the Association has taken active steps to 
aid the Board of Trustees and Faculty in the rehabilitation of the 
College. 

One of the cherished hopes of the Association, that of having 
direct representation on the Board of Trustees, has been attained 
in the appointment of two members of the Alumni Association, by 
the Governor of the State, as Trustees of the College. The attain- 
ment of this end will naturally greatly increase the enthusiasm and 
interest of the members of the Association in co-operating more 
closely than ever with the College authorities in increasing the 
scope and usefulness of the Institution. 



140 



I. 



The Alumni Association continues to offer a medal to the debat- 
ing societies. 

The members have also greatly aided in the development of 
athletics and especially in conducting the joint athletic meets, which 
were held at the College during the last four years. 

The Alumni also co-operate in the publishing of the "M. S. C. A. 
Weekly." 

The officers of the Alumni Association for the present year are: 
President, R. M. Pindell, '89; Vice-President, F, P. Veitch, '91; 
Secretary-Treasurer, W. M. Hillegeist, '12; Executive Committee, 
members at large, W. W. Skinner, '95 ; W. D. Graff, '00 ; Alumni 
Athletic Board, Wellstood White, '05 ; J. P. Grason, '09. 

Graduates and members of the Association are requested to keep 
the Secretary-Treasurer, W. M. Hillegeist, College Park, Md., in- 
formed of any change in address. Any information concerning the 
older graduates which will enable the officers to locate and com- 
municate with them will facilitate their, efforts and will tend to 
further the success of the Association.
