LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 



The Founding of the Institution. 



T EBANON VALLEY COLLEGE came into existence to 
-LX supply an absolute want. Denominational growth and an 
advancing civilization rendered it necessary for the Church of 
"The United Brethren in Christ," throughout the States of 
Pennsylvania, Maryland and the Virginias, to make special pro- 
vision for the moral and intellectual culture of her children. 
After much deliberation and prayer, it was resolved that an in- 
stitution of learning be established, which would furnish the 
advantages of a thorough education alike to young men and 
women, under the safe and inspiring influences of the Christian 
religion. 

To carry out this purpose, a committee of worthy gentlemen 
was chosen, with authority to elect a suitable place for its es- 
tablishment. 

The Town of Annville, 

located in the midst of the beautiful Lebanon Valley, was 
chosen on account of its accessibility, healthfulness and in- 
spiring scenery. 

As a further inducement to locate the College at this place, 
a suitable building and grounds were donated by public-spirited 
citzens for educatfonal purposes. In jS86 the Institution was 
founded and chartered by a Special Act of the Legislature of 
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 

The Aim 

of the Trustees and Faculty, from the first, has been to provide 
courses of study which will qualify students to be practical and 
self-reliant, as well as learned. 



4 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

The Charter plainly indicates, that it was the intention of the 
founders to plant an Institution which would become so ample 
in facilities and manifold in departments as to furnish in- 
struction in all the subjects of a general and special education, 
and toward this original purpose the Institution will advance as 
rapidly as the necessary means are secured and circumstances 
will demand it. 

Officers of the Corporation. 

The Board of Trustees are elected by the Co-operating Con- 
ference, one-third of whom are elected annually for a term of 
three years. 

The members of the Faculty, and two persons chosen by 
the Alumni from their own number, sustain an ex-officio re- 
lation. 

Fidelity to Patrons. 

The members of the Faculty believe that all pupils should be 
encouraged to educate as thoroughly as their means and native 
endowment will admit, even when there is promise of only 
moderate success; but when a student persists in a course of 
indifference and manifests no appreciation of time, money or 
opportunities, the Institution regards itself morally bound to 
make known the facts to its patrons, but not until every worthy 
method has been employed for his reformation. 

Co-Education. 

The principle of co-education of the sexes was adopted from 
the first by the founders of the College — and the entire absence 
of College barbarities and excesses, as well as the manifestation 
of a tendency to a higher standard of scholarship, from year to 
year, proves the wisdom of this natural order of things. The 
facilities of the College and the encouragements to a thorough 
education are offered alike to all. And experience has shown 
that there is no appreciable difference between the male and the 
female, as such, as to ability in mastering the studies of a 
College Course. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 5 

Non-Sectarian. 

While the College is denominational in management, it is 
positively free from sectarian bias; and the liberal patronage 
which it has enjoyed from homes representing all phases of 
Protestant faith, as well as from the homes of non-professors, 
attests the fact that Colleges may inculcate the principles of 
Christian Morality without traducing the religious convictions 
or personal belief of anyone. 

Aggressive in Spirit. 

The Institution is not bound in theory or practice to anti- 
quated methods, but it seeks to interpret the laws of science 
and of life in keeping with the spirit of progress and the lead- 
ings of Providence. 

Guaranty. 

Fidelity to these principles in the past is the guaranty that 
the Institution offers to its patrons in the future.

LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 



BOURSES OF {BiUiDY. 



The College offers four courses of study — the Classical, the 
Scientific, the Academical, and the Musical. 

The Classical Course 

is the most thorough, and should be elected by those who con- 
template entering the "Learned Professions," and by such as 
aspire to the ripest scholarship or purely literary pursuits. Those 
who satisfactorily finish this course are graduated with the 
degree — Bachelor of Arts. 

The Scientific Course 

requires but one ancient language — either the Greek or the 
Latin ; otherwise it is the same as the Classical Course. 
It leads to the degree, Bachelor of Science. . 

The Academical Course 

extends over three Collegiate years, and is as full and symmetrical 
as the time will admit. It is intended to furnish the necessary 
discipline and instruction for a practical education. A diploma 
will be awarded to those who complete this course. 

The Musical Course, 

in addition to the regular studies of the subject, requires a 
generous knowledge of such branches as are best suited to a 
musical education.

Department of Instruction. 



MENTAL AND MORAL PHILOSOPHY. 



Mental and Moral Sciences. In the Senior year of the 
Classical and Scientific courses, students are admitted to the 
study of Psychology and Ethics. These subjects are taught by 
means of text-books and interlocutory methods, and it is ex- 
pected that those who pursue them will attain a fair knowledge 
of the history and present status of these sciences. 

Seventeen weeks are devoted to the study of Psychology, and 
eleven weeks to the study of Ethics, with five recitations in each, 
per week. 

Apologetics. Analogy of Religion and Evidences of Chris- 
tianity are studied in the Senior and Junior years, twelve weeks 
being devoted to each. Written theses are required, setting 
forth, briefly, the arguments of the authors' and students' views 
concerning them. In the study of these subjects, there are ex- 
ercises in the review of authors and their criticism. 

Philosophy. This subject is taught with reference to origin 
and development of pure philosophical inquiry ; and to a com- 
parison of the various systems both "Ancient" and "Modern." 

Social Science. Political Economy opens to the student 
the subject of individual and national well-being, and treats 
scientifically the living questions, Production, Distribution and 
Consumption. 

Seventeen weeks are devoted to this subject during the Sopho- 
more year, and it is expected that intelligent views will be 
reached as to the theories of Tariff. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 25 



LATIN LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE. 



In this department the design is to give thorough instruction 
in the language and literature of the Romans. The authors 
whose writings are studied, are Caesar, Cicero, Virgil, Livy, 
Horace, Quintilian, Tacitus, Terence and Juvenal. In the earlier 
stages the learner's attention is especially directed to the mastery 
of inflections, to the elements of the words declined and conju- 
gated, so as to obtain a perfect familiarity with the stems, signs, 
and endings. As the study advances Syntax is taken up, and 
by constant reviews of the Grammar, the knowledge obtained 
is confirmed and enlarged. To acquire the ability to translate 
faithfully and elegantly is a leading object. Students are asked 
to show the construction of the text, explain the derivation of 
words and apply the principles of grammar. In connection 
with the reading of the poets particular attention is given to 
Prosody. 

Latin Composition is studied with care. After the text-book 
is completed there are regular exercises in writing Latin essays. 

The Continental method of pronunciation is used. From 
the beginning pupils are taught correct accent and quantity, and 
by careful practice are trained to read the Latin text with facil- 
ity and grace. 

During the Winter Term lectures are delivered every week, 
on the History of Roman Literature, before the class studying 
that subject, in which the early stages of its growth are traced, 
and the most prominent writers, from the time of Livius An- 
dronicus up to the patriotic era, are presented. Especially are 
the illustrious authors of the Augustine age and their works 
made the subjects of treatment. It is the aim in these lectures 
to give to the students of Latin Literature a comprehensive view 
of the subject, and to infuse a desire for the study of those 
literary masterpieces which have so long maintained an honored 
place among the educated classes of all civilized lands.

sical Atlas, Mommsen's History of Rome, Ellis' Quantative 
Pronunciation of Latin, and Corssen's Ausprache Vocalismus 
und Betonung der Latinischen Sprache. 



GREEK LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE. 



The subjects taught in this department are the Greek Lan- 
guage and Literature, the History of Greece, the History of 
Greek Literature, Antiquities and Comparative Philology. 

In the Preparatory Classes the student is thoroughly drilled 
in the inflections of the language, and words are carefully ex- 
amined with reference to the application of the laws of euphonic 
change and rules of construction. 

Written and oral translations, from Greek into English and 
from English into Greek, are given throughout the first two 
years. In all of these exercises strict attention is paid to the gram- 
matical principles involved, and the laws of accent are carefully 
applied. 

A greater familiarity with idioms and the spirit of the lan- 
guage is acquired by means of the "Modern Method" of 
teaching languages — by questions and answers in the original 
tongue. 

In the higher classes, special attention is given to the style, 
spirit and subject matter of the author. With these recitations 
are connected exercises in Comparative Philology and Histori- 
cal Etymology, in derivative words, tracing the transition from 
the primary meaning to secondary and figurative meanings, and 
observing the interchange of words through the cognate tongues. 

The Greek Testament is studied throughout the Sophomore 
year, one recitation per week.

Greece, Goodwin's Greek Moods and Tenses, Homeric Gram- 
mar, Grote's Plato, and introduction to the Rhythmic and Metric 
of the Classical Languages. 



MATHEMATICS. 



Geometry and Trigonometry. Geometry is a two-fold 
science, being demonstrative reasoning, and a system of prac- 
tical truths. In the study of this science we seek to bring out 
the meaning and practical utility of the abstract propositions, 
and seek to enable the student to feel that he deals with com- 
mon affairs, and not with abstractions of the imagination. By 
frequent application of practical problems, the principles are 
fixed in the student's mind, and thought is developed ; indeed 
practical applications are essential to a full apprehension of geo- 
metrical truths, otherwise the science becomes a mere discussion 
of abstract propositions. The work preceding the proportion- 
alities and measurement of polygons, circles, and solids is done 
in the Preparatory year. There are exercises in original inves- 
tigation and application of Algebra to Geometry. 

One- half of Freshman year is devoted to Plane and Spherical 
Trigonometry. Students apply the principles to the measuring 
of heights and distances, and to Astronomy, as a part of class 
exercise. 

Calculus and Surveying. The study of Calculus is taught 
during the Sophomore year, and is required of all students. 

Surveying occupies the Spring term of the Sophomore year. 
Instruction is given in practical surveying, and the student is 



2 8 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

taught, by use of instruments and field-pratice, to be self-reli- 
ant and thorough. 

Books of Reference. Peck's Mathematical Dictionary, 
Gauss' Theory of Numbers, Todhunter's General Theory of 
Equations, Salmon's Modern Higher Algebra, Newcomb's or 
Wentworth's Geometry and Trigonometry, and Olney's General 
Geometry. 



NATURAL SCIENCE. 

The College does not propose to make specialists in any of 
the departments of Science ; yet, the design is to teach thor- 
oughly, and as minutely as time will permit, all the subjects em- 
braced in this Department. 

Students begin the study of Science with Elementary Natural 
History of Animals in the first year of the Preparatory Course, 
and finish with Geology in the last term of the Senior year. 

Geography of the Heavens and Physical Geography to- 
gether cover the Fall and Winter terms of the Preparatory- 
first year ; the studies being so arranged as to give the most fa- 
vorable season for the study of the constellations and heavenly 

bodies. 

Physiology, including Anatomy and Hygiene, is studied by 
Freshmen. The study of Anatomy will be aided, as far as 
practicable, by dissection of important organs, such as heart, 
eye, etc., of ox or sheep, and by the use of the microscope. 

Zoology, embracing the topics, Biology, Comparative Anato- 
my, and Geographical Distribution of Animals, is begun in the 
latter part of the Fall term of the Freshman year, and extends 
through the Winter term. 

Botany, structural and physiological, is studied by the use of 
text book and microscopic specimens ; Systematic Botany, by 
the analysis of specimens in the class-room and in the field. It 
is a Spring term study of the Freshman year. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 29 

Natural Philosophy is studied by the Juniors during the 
entire year, devoting the Fall term to Mechanics and Hydrosta- 
tics ; Winter and Spring terms to Pneumatics and Physics. 

Chemistry. — Instruction in Theoretical and Descriptive Chem- 
istry is given during the Fall term of the Senior year! A con- 
siderable time will be given to lectures and laboratory work. 

Mineralogy and Geology are studied by the seniors during 
the Winter and Spring terms. A short course in Mineralogy 
follows the study of Dynamical and Historical Geology. 

BOOKS OF REFERENCE. 

In connection with the study of text books, students should 
read as much collateral matter as time will allow. The follow- 
ing books will be found valuable as furnishing fuller treatment 
of subjects than it is possible to give in text books : Huxley's 
Physiology or Dalton's Human Physiology; Packard's Zoology; 
Gray's Structural Botany; Plantl and Vine's Botany; Dana's 
Mechanics; Atkinson's Ganot's Physics or Deschanel's Natu- 
ral Philosophy; Cook's The New Chemistry; Wurtz's The 
Atomic Theory; Dana's Manual of Geology, Le Conte's Geolo- 
gy; Nicholson's Ancient Life History of the Earth. 



ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE. 



In this department are taught English Grammar, Analysis, 
Higher English, General History, Bible History, Logic, Science 
of Government, Rhetoric, History of Civilization, Elements of 
Criticism, and English Literature. 

We seek to bring to view the structure and uses of the lan- 
guage, not only by the study of rules, but by careful study of 
the best literary models, and original composition. Higher 
Lessons in English afford opportunities to those desiring ad- 



30 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

vanced drill in the art of expression and composition. Rheto- 
ric, a subject pursued by the Juniors, also supplements this drill 
by a much more systematic study of the forms of Prose, Poetry 
and Style. 

The view taken of the history of the world is, from necessity, 
somewhat cursory, but sufficient to create a taste for historical 
study. The history of our own country is studied during the 
Spring term. The fall term of seventeen weeks is given to the 
study of Bible History, which all are required to study with 
the same care that they do the other branches of the curriculum. 

The "History of Civilization" is taught from text-books, 
but is supplemented by a series of dissertations, the subjects of 
which are assigned students at the beginning of the term, and 
which they are required to prepare either for oral or written 
delivery before the class. 

Logic is studied by the Juniors. Special attention is given 
the forms of correct argument and fallacy. 

The Science of Government, embracing a rapid, yet com- 
plete view of our political system, is taught with reference es- 
pecially to the duties of good citizenship. 

Elements of Criticism, as related to the beautiful in nature 
and art, and a knowledge of the principles of good taste, is 
studied in the Senior year. 

English Literature, taught by both manual and the works 
of the standard authors, is made one of the most interesting 
and important branches of this department. Our constant 
aim is to awaken new interest in the study of our own language 
and literature, and, whatever the study, the student may feel 
that his training in English is not neglected. 

Books of Reference. 
The College Library is well supplied with histories and lite- 
rature bearing upon the subjects of this department, to some of 
which the student is referred almost daily, and in some in- 
stances required to examine for special information. The Li- 
brary is our great ally and aid in instruction. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 3 1 

For special reference, the following are recommended : 

Welsh's Development of the English Literature and Lan- 
guage ; Townsend's Art of Speech, Vols. I and II ; Smith's 
Old and New Testament History ; Whitney's Language and the 
Study of Language ; Whitney's Life and Growth of Language; 
Stille's Studies in Mediaeval History. 
Astronomy. 

Astronomy occupies seventeen weeks of Senior year. The 
instruction is both by use of text-book and lectures which em- 
brace the latest discoveries and researches. In some respects 
the instruction is mathematical, as the students are required to 
find the periodic time and mass of planets, sun's rising and 
setting and beginning, and duration of twilight, eclipses, &c. 

Students will have some practice with an Acromatic Tele- 
scope. They will be required, as a part of class work, to make 
observations of the Sun, Planets, Clusters of Stars, &c. 



MODERN LANGUAGES. 



Instruction is imparted in German and French by exercises 
in translation, by conversational practice and by writing. It is 
the aim in this department so to master these languages, that 
they may become of practical value. In addition to the text- 
books named in the course, the following are recommended : 
Adler's German and English Dictionary, and Spier's and Su- 
renne's French Pronouncing Dictionary. 



DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC. 



Music Course. 
The course of instruction in either Piano or Voice will occupy 
three years. A Preparatory year is also required of those who 
expect to enter upon the regular course, and are not already 



2,2 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

familiar with the rudiments of music. Pupils may devote their 
entire time to music, or take it in connection with other studies. 
The stated time for completing the course may be lengthened or 
shortened, according to the advancement of the pupil. Some 
pupils will accomplish in two years what would take others three 
or four years to complete. A knowledge of the elements of 
Harmony will be required, or one year's study, in order to 
graduate in either Piano or Voice. At the close of each term a 
written examination is made. A graduate in Voice is also ex- 
pected to acquire a degree of proficiency on the Piano, sufficient 
to enable him to play his own accompaniments. 

Private and Class Lessons. 

Private lessons will be given at extra cost, but the class system 
is strongly recommended. It is practiced in the best conserva- 
tories of this country and Europe. Mendelssohn says : "It has 
advantages over private instruction ; it produces industry, spurs 
on to emulation, and preserves against one-sidedness of educa- 
tion and taste." " The student of music will as surely fail of 
a complete musical education, by taking private instruction 
alone, as would the student of science without the advantage of 
the College or University." 

Students in Piano are arranged in classes of two. Voice cul- 
ture pupils in classes of two or four. Harmony students in 
classes of four or six. 

Elements of music, sight-singing and part-singing classes free 
to all music pupils. Public recitals are given by the music 
pupils every two months. 

Pupils will take practice in ensemble playing. 

Recitations. 
Classes in cultivation of the voice, piano-forte, organ, har- 
mony, and chorus practice receive two lessons a week. Stu- 
dents may enter at any time, but it is very desirable that they 
should begin with the term on account of grading, time of 
lessons, &c. A careful examination is made by the teacher in 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 33 

charge, regarding the proficiency of all new pupils, that they 
may be properly classified in the course. 

Sheet music, books, &c, can be obtained at reduced rates. 

Those who complete the required course of study in either 
Piano or A r oice are awarded a diploma. Diplomas will be con- 
ferred only at the Annual Commencement. 



PREPARATORY YEAR. 



The study of the notes and the key-board ; position of body, 
arms and hands at the instrument ; instruction in touching the 
keys ; simple finger exercises, aiming at correct execution of the 
Five tones and their various inversions, with the different kinds 
of touch. The New England Conservatory Piano Method, No. 
1, is used, (foreign fingering), followed by studies of Loeschhorn, 
ops. 65 and 52, at the option of the teacher, in connection 
with op. 107, by Reinecke, Schumann's "Scenes from Child- 
hood," and other pleasing pieces. 

First Year.

the respiratory organs. Development of pure tone. Study of 
the union of the registers. Study of the vowels and consonants. 
Application of words to music. Concone's 30 Exercises for 
obtaining agility and flexibility. Concone's 50 lessons. A few 
simple ballads. 

Second Year. 

Emery's Elements of Harmony. Practice of the Scales, 
Arpeggios and Velocity Exercises Continued. Bonaldi's Exer-

artists, new additions being made from time to time. Ample 
opportunities are afforded for obtaining instruction in Free-hand 
Drawing, both from casts and the flat, Modeling in Clay, Paint- 
ing in Oil, China and Water Colors. It is intended to impart 
essential principles while training the eye and hand to accurate 
and successful practice. 

Special advantages in this department are afforded by a sys- 
tem of giving daily lessons, which is not customary in schools 
not especially devoted to Art. 

Students will find works of interest and assistance in the Col- 
lege Library. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 35 



@ENERaii Information. 



T EBANON VALLEY COLLEGE is located at Annville. 
J-V. This village is noted for its healthfulness and freedom 
from those temptations to vice so common to cities and large 
towns. It is accessible from all points, being located on the 
direct route of railroad travel from Harrisburg, via Reading, to 
Philadelphia or New York. Trains stopping at Annville leave 
Harrisburg and Reading seven times a day, Sunday excepted. 

Buildings and Grounds. 

There are two large brick buildings, capable of accommodat- 
ing a large number of students. The rooms are arranged for 
two students each, are well ventilated, contain clothes-presses 
and other conveniences. 

There has recently been erected a third building, containing 
the Library, a large and well-lighted Art-Room, two Music 
Rooms, the entire Department of Natural Science, with its 
Laboratory and Museum. There is alo a fine campus of about 
six acres. 

The Ladies' Hall is entirely separate from the other 
premises, and is under the immediate care of the Preceptress. 
Young ladies from abroad are furnished comfortable and pleas- 
ant homes, where they have every advantage for study and 
general improvement. Non-resident students board in the Insti- 
tution, where they are under the continual care of the President 
and Professors, 

Furnishing and Outfit. 

Students are required to furnish their own bedding, except the 
mattress, bolster and pillows. They should have their blankets, 
sheets, pillow-cases and clothing indelibly marked with their 
full name. 



36 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

Spending Money. 

Patrons are kindly but urgently reminded that students need 
very little pocket money. 

It should be remembered that luxurious habits and good 
scholarship seldom go together, and that the principles and 
practice of economy are essential to a good education. 

For All. 

It is desired that the facilities of the College be kept within 
the reach of all, and it is therefore urged that jewelry be left at 
home, and that in dress there be no vain display of wealth. 

All that is beyond a becoming neatness should be discarded 
by the student. 

Discipline. 

The object of the Institution is to afford a home, where pa- 
rents or guardians may place their sons, daughters, and wards, 
with safety and profit, and where young men and young women 
may be fitted for usefulness under influences calculated to refine 
their tastes, ennoble their aspirations, discipline their intellectual 
powers, and devolop a high Christian character. The Govern- 
ment of the College is strict, but parental, making its appeal 
to the student's own sense of honor, but no one habitually 
guilty of immoral practices, or who is persistently disorderly, 
can be tolerated in the institution. Every unexcused absence, 
failure, or misdemeanor of a student is reported to the Faculty, 
and a record made of the same. 

The first three demerit marks will subject the student to pri- 
vate reproof; the first six to reproof before the Faculty ; the first 
nine to reproof in public, with notice to parent or guardian ; 
and the first twelve to dismission from the College. 

The Faculty may, on evidence of reformation, restore a dis- 
missed student. 

Studies and Recitation. 

Students are required to pursue the studies of the classes to 
which they are assigned, unless exempted for special reasons. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 37 

No student is permitted to take a study to which he has not 
been assigned, nor to discontinue a study without permission 
obtained from the Faculty. 

Grading. 

Students are graded on their work in the Recitation Room. 
The standard of perfection in scholarship is ioo. The student's 
standing is determined by the average of his term and examina- 
tion grades. A grade of less than 65 per centum will compel 
the student to submit to a second examination, or to repeat the 
study with the next lower class. 

Parents having children in the College classes, and desiring 
their report and grades, may obtain them by applying to the 
Secretary of the Faculty. 

Examinations. 

Regular examinations are held at the middle and close of 
each term. The examinations are intended to be thorough, 
and have an influence in determining the standing of the 
student. 

In all cases, when from any cause a student has failed to be 
present at the regular examination, he shall- undergo an exam- 
ination before being permitted again to recite in the classes of 
the College. 

The final examinations of the Seniors are held two weeks be- 
fore Commencement, from which time they are subject only to 
such duties as are required for their preparation for graduation. 

Candidates for class standing other than those who have regu- 
larly pursued their studies at the College, or who bring certifi- 
cates of class standing in other institutions, are required to pass 
special examinations, either at the beginning or end of a term. 
Examination fee, four dollars. 

Promotion. 
At the beginning of each term, the old classes are re-organ- 
ized and new ones formed. At or near the close of each 
academic year, the names of all the members of each class sep- 



38 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

arately, come before the Faculty for promotion, and those of 
the Senior Class for graduation, and no student is promoted to 
a higher class, or to graduation, except upon the unanimous 
vote of the Faculty. 

Rhetorical Exercise. 

All students upon entering the Institution are assigned to 
rhetorical classes, which are met on Wednesday of each week by 
members of the Faculty for Literary drill. These Rhetoricals, 
together with the Literary Societies, afford sufficient opportu- 
nities for exercise in Composition and Oratory. Advanced 
classes in the College are required to take part in public exer- 
cises two or three times a year. 

Leave of Absence. 

No student is allowed to be absent during the term without 
special permission. The absence of a student, for even a day, 
during his term-time, exerts on his progress an evil influence, 
which is seldom fully appreciated by parents and guardians ; 
hence no apology, but that of sickness or unavoidable accident, 
is sufficient to excuse a student from a regular attendance at 
recitation. 

No student, during the term, is expected to quit the Institu- 
tion without the consent of the President and Faculty. 

Any one withdrawing from the Institution during term-time 
without giving due notice and having permission to do so, will 
be marked upon the records as having irregularly withdrawn. 

Any student prevented from attending class must present to 
the Professor in charge a written excuse for being absent. 

Religious Exercises. 

Religious service is held in the College Chapel on the morn- 
ing of each day, and all students are required to attend. 

Students from abroad, who are residents of the College, are 
also required to attend public worship on the Sabbath in the 
College Chapel, unless otherwise directed by the Faculty, ex- 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 39 

cept those who on account of church membership, or wish of 
parent or guardian, may prefer to attend church elsewhere. 

A students' prayer meeting, to which all are invited, is held 
on each Tuesday evening. 

Y. M. C. A. 

There is a thrifty organization of the Young Men's Christian 
Association in the College which holds its meetings on Satur- 
day night of each week. The moral influence of this organi- 
zation is very salutary in the Institution. 

Literary Societies. 

There are connected with the College three literary societies 
— the Kalozetean, the Clionian, and the Philokosmian. 
The second is the Ladies' society. Each has its proper hall 
and its own library. These societies are regarded as valuable 
aids to college work, and students are advised to join one of them. 

Physical Culture. 

A well equipped gymnasium is in operation in the main Col- 
lege building, to which all students have access at stated times by 
the payment of a small fee. A careful " Director " has over- 
sight of these exercises to guard against accidents and immode- 
ration. 

In addition to the physical discipline of the gymnasium, the 
students are required to take regular exercise in the open air 
when the weather will admit of it, and every precaution is taken 
to foster health. 

Help for Indigent Students. 

The College has methods of assisting a limited number of 
worthy young men who have not the means of defraying their 
own expenses, and yet scores apply from year to year, both of 
ladies and gentlemen, whom we have not the means to help. 
May not the statement of this fact be a sufficient appeal to lead 
many to endow scholarships, the income of which will be suf- 
ficient to help to an education those who could not otherwise 
obtain it? 



40 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

Libraries and Cabinets. 

The College Library, to which all the students have daily ac- 
cess without charge, contains twenty- five hundred volumes. 
The libraries of the literary societies also comprise a respectable 
number of well-selected and standard volumes. The libraries are 
constantly increasing by donations from friends and from the 
proceeds of a constantly accruing fund. 

The cabinet contains a collection of specimens in Mine- 
ralogy, Geology and Natural History. 

Reading Room. 

There is in the College a well-stocked Reading Room which 
is daily accessible to the students, and in connection with it a 
Natural History Club which operates in conjunction with the 
corresponding department of the institution. 

A small fee is charged for reading room privileges. 

Degrees. 

Bachelor of Arts. — This degree is conferred in course upon 
any student of the College who completes the studies of the 
Classical Course, and passes a satisfactory examination upon the 
same. 

Bachelor of .Science. — This degree is confererred in course 
upon any student who completes the studies of the Scientific 
Course and passes a satisfactory examination upon the same. 

Master of Arts. — This degree is, on application, conferred 
upon any Bachelor of Arts, who has, for at least three years 
after his graduation, devoted himself to literary or professional 
pursuits, and has, during the same time, sustained a good moral 
character. Fee, five dollars. 

Inquiries Concerning Departments. 

Persons wishing more detailed information than is given in 
this Catalogue, as to Courses of Study, Methods of Instruction, 
Examinations, etc., may address the President or the Professor 
in charge of the department concerned. 



LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 4 1 

Schedule. 

At the end of each term a Schedule of the College Exer- 
cises for the ensuing term is issued. Every student must take 
the equivalent of at least fifteen periods of recitation each week, 
unless excused by special action of the Faculty. 

Normal S. S. Class. 

A Normal Class for the instruction of Sunday School Teach- 
ers is conducted on each Sabbath morning by one of the Pro- 
fessors. The Course of Instruction reaches over one year, and is 
the one provided for and used at the Chautauqua Assembly. A 
diploma issued by the Sunday-school Board of the United Breth- 
ren Church is granted to students who complete the course. 

Lecture Course. 

A course of Popular Lectures will be delivered during the 
Fall and Winter Terms by some of the most noted Lecturers in 
the field. 

Rev. M. P. Doyle, Prof. Bernard Bigsby, Prof. J. P. Mac- 
lean, President Edward H. Magill, L L. D., of Swarthmore 
College, Prof. Wm. B. Bodenhorn, A. M., Superintendent of 
Public Schools of Lebanon county, Hon. Henry Hauck, Dept. 
State Superintendent, and Prof. H. Lenich Meyer, have lec- 
tured during the present year. 

In addition to these lectures, there was a lecture each week 
by a member of the Faculty upon miscellaneous subjects. 

Announcement and Suggestions. 

Additions are being made from time to time of apparatus for 
philosophical and laboratory purposes as well as of specimens 
of scientific and historic interest. Many of these additions are 
the gifts of friends to whom the College makes grateful ac- 
knowledgement. 

The institution is prepared to suitably preserve and exhibit 
all specimens of any value, and in all cases the wishes of donors 
will be respected. 



42 LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE. 

Specimens in Geology, Mineralogy, Botany and Zoology are 
especially solicited. 

Contributions to the College Library will also be highly ap- 
preciated, especially of old and rare books and manuscripts, 
which are liable to be lost if they are not deposited in the li- 
brary of a permanent institution. 

Books, specimens and antique relics should be addressed to 
the librarian or Professor of the Natural Science Department, 
with the donor's name legibly signed. 

Terms and Vacations. 

The Collegiate Year is divided into three terms. 

The Fall Term will begin Monday, August 29th, 1887, and 
will end on Friday, December 23d, 1887. 

The Winter Term will begin on Monday, January 9th, 1888, 
and will close on Friday, March 23d, 1888.

The charges for room rent, heat and furniture is made on the basis of 
two persons to each room. In case where a student rooms alone he will 
be charged 50 cents additional per week. Any student not boarding in the 
institution and occupying a room in the building will be charged a reason- 
able rent for the same. 

Extra washing, plain pieces, 50 cents per dozen. White dresses, etc., 
extra. 

Each student will be held accountable for any damage he or she may 
cause to the college property. Damages by unknown parties may be 
assessed to the school. A deposit of $3 must be made on entering to cover 
damages that a student may do to room or other property. This will be 
returned when the student leaves in case no injury has been done. 

Tuition and room rent are counted from the time of entering to the end 
of the term, and tuition from the first of the term for entrance second and 
third week. 

We urge a comparison of these charges with those of other schools, be- 
lieving that such a comparison will establish the fact that our rates are more 
moderate for the advantages afforded than can be found elsewhere. 

Terms of Payment. 

All fees for diplomas and degrees must be paid thirty days before Com- 
mencement. 

One-half of all other bills in advance. Balance in the middle of the 
term. 

No student can have a special examination or be admitted to classes until 
all bills are satisfactorily settled with the Financial Secretary.

]$N£>OWMENT. 



There are Christian men and women who could not devote themselves 
to the pursuits of knowledge for want of means ; throughout their life they 
have felt that they might have been more useful and happy, had the oppor- 
tunities of securing an education been afforded them. Will not these men 
and women become the benefactors of those worthy young people, many 
of whom now are thirsting for an education, but who are so circumstanced 
that they cannot obtain it ? 

Those wishing to consecrate some of their means to such an end, are 
solicited to endow limited scholarships in Lebanon Valley College, to assist 
those who are deserving of help. These may vary in amount from $500 
to $2,000. They may also help to bring the opportunities of an education 
within the reach of those in limited circumstances by contributing to the 
endowment .of the College. 

Form of Scholarship Bequest. 

I bequeath to my executors the sum of dollars, in trust, to pay 

over the same in . . . . months after my decease, to the person who, 
when the same is payable, shall act as Treasurer of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege, founded at Annville, Pennsylvania, in the year one thousand eight 
hundred and sixty-six, as a scholarship fund, the interest of which only 
is to be loand without charge to such pious young people as the Faculty of 
the College may deem worthy of help as students, the principal of the 
scholarship to be under the direction and management of the Trustees of 
the College. 

Form of Bequest to the Endowment Fund. 

I bequeath to my executors the sum of dollars, in trust, to pay 

over the same in months, after my decease, to the person who, 

when the same is payable, shall act as Treasurer of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege, founded in Annville, Pennsylvania, in the year one thousand eight 
hundred and sixty-six, the same to be sacred as an endowment fund 
in said College, the interest only to be used for the payment of instructors 

in the department; the principal of said bequest to be under 

the direction and management of the Trustees of the College.

Dealliess, Diseases of tie Ear aVGatanl. 

By DR. C. E. SHOEMAKER, 

The well-known Experienced Aural Surgeon of Reading, Pa. 

SENT FREE TO ALL. 



This Guide to the Afflicted — a book of nearly ico pages — fully explains 
all about the Cause, Symptoms and Treatment of Deafness, Diseases 
of the Ear, and Catarrh, why they are not treated successfully by so many 
who claim they can cure them, and -what is absohitely necessary to obtain 
a cure in such cases, and whom to trust and who not to trust, in order to 
be properly treated and not imposed upon. 

Dr. C. E. Shoemaker is a regularly educated Physician and Surgeon — 
having graduated from the Medical Department of Pennsylvania College, 
at Philadelphia, March 3, i860, and after some years in successful general 
practice, took up the study of Aural Surgery and entered liellevue Hospital 
Medical College in New York City, where, under able instructors, as also 
at the Hospitals, Ear Dispensaries, and Institutes of that city, he mastered 
this branch of medical science, and since then has devoted all his time to 
the treatment of Deafness, Diseases of the Ear, and Catarrh exclusively. 

Dr. Shoemaker gives his personal attention to every patient, and pre- 
scribes specialty for each case. Not from one bottle, or the same remedy 
for all cases, but only such remedies as an able and experienced Physician 
and specially educated Aurist would prescribe for such ailment after 26 
years' experience. 

Dr. Shoemaker keeps a full supply of the most valuable instruments to 
aid the deaf to hear, which the afflicted are always allowed to test before 
buying the same. By sending 50 cents to pay postage and expenses in 
sending, the Doctor will forward any he sells, ly mail to any address, and 
in case of buying, the 50 cents is deducted from the price or cost of instru- 
ment. 

No one afflicted with Deafness, or Catarrh, or bad Headache (which is 
almost always caused by a mild catarrhal affection^, should fail in sending 
his or her address for a copy of this valuable guide. The Reading, Pa., 
Daily Times, says : " Every family should have a copy of this book." 

Sent Free to All. Address, 

C. E. SHOEMAKER, M. D., 

jlxx.icql.1 Surgeon,

THE U. B. 
MUTUAL AID SOCIETY 

OF PENNSYLVANIA. 



Principal Office, - Lebanon, Pa. 



The U. B. Mutual Aid Society is the oldest Assessment Company in this 
country. It has an assessment basis of $ 10,636,500, and has surplus assets 
over liabilities amounting to $181,901. 

It has paid to the beneficiaries of deceased members up to January 1st, 
1887, the enormous sum of #4,921,071, of which $58,715 was paid to the 
families of deceased ministers who were members of the Society. Bishop 
J. J. Glossbrenner, of the United Brethren Church, who died in January 
last, was its first president, and had his life insured for $4,000. His first 
certificate was issued to him March 16th, 187 1, for #1,000, at age of 58 
years, on which he paid the Society $603.12. The same amount of insur- 
ance for the same age and time in an old-line company would have cost 
him $833.12, or $230 more than in the U. B. The Society opened a new 
Division — E — three years ago, in which are embodied all the improve- 
ments which sixteen years' experience have indicated. 

Only males between the ages of 20 and 56 years are admitted in this Di- 
vision. None but the very best risks can become members of this Division, 
and the result of this careful selection in three years' experience is, that 
there have only been seven losses during this whole period, and that the 
assessments to a member 45 years of age on $1,000 was only #2.33 a year.
