From time to time members of the Faculty of Lebanon Valley- 
College have been called upon to conduct "extension courses" in 
various places, so as to meet the needs of such persons as found it 
impossible to attend the courses given within the college. This 
service developed very naturally, and almost unnoticed. Last year 
it was believed the time had come when this phase of the activities of 
the college should be definitely organized. As an organization, the 
Extension School Department offered courses of study in Lebanon, 
Annville and Harrisburg which were so well received and attended 
that the demand for a continuation of this work prompted an en- 
largement of the program so as to include similar work to be offered 
at Reading. The college is always willing and ready to extend its 
services where they are needed and appreciated. To those who have 
so loyally supported and encouraged the success of this movement 
the college is greatly indebted. It hopes to meet this obligation 
by employing its educational facilities in a manner productive of 
the greatest service to those interested in educational advancement. 
Accordingly, the college will be glad to receive requests from groups 
who desire courses other than these, and to arrange, whenever pos- 
sible, to supply such instruction as may be desired. 

The courses offered are, for the most part, intended primarily for 
those engaged in teaching. However, all other qualified persons will 
be admitted to extension courses, and some courses are more or less 
definitely planned to meet the needs or interests of persons outside 
of the teaching group. All courses will be taught by regular members 
of the college Faculty, and will be of regular college grade and re- 
ceive credit as such. Inasmuch as Lebanon Valley College is an 
accredited institution, on the first list of colleges and universities, 
persons who complete these courses may safely assume that their 
credits will be honored wherever they may be presented. The credits 
earned in these courses will be regularly counted by Lebanon Valley 
College towards its degrees. 


Each class will meet for thirty sessions at the specified time each 
week from October to May, exclusive of Thanksgiving, Christmas 

and Easter recesses. The first meeting of each group will be held 
in the week of October 1. 


Registration may be made at the time and place of the first meet- 
ing of the classes. All those who are interested are invited to at- 
tend the first meeting of any class, at which time questions may be 
asked and the nature of the work more fully explained. 


The requirements for admission are set forth in the annual catalog 
of the college. College credit will be given only to those who have 
had a four year high school course or the equivalent. A teacher's 
certificate will be accepted as evidence of satisfactory preparation 
for admission to the courses. A limited number of persons whose 
preparation may not meet the requirements as set forth above may 
be admitted at the discretion of the instructors. 


In Harrisburg the classes will meet in the Technical High School. 
Lebanon classes will meet in the Junior High School. Classes in 
Reading will meet in the Boys' High School Building at Eighth and 
Washington streets. Classes meeting in the college at Annville are 
specifically so noted. 

Evening classes will meet for a double period, beginning at 7:30 
and continuing until 9:15. The time of meeting of other classes is 
stated in connection with the description of the course. 


A fee of $2.00 will be charged for matriculation and registration 
in the case of all who have not been previously matriculated in the 
college. The tuition charge for extension courses will be $6.00 for 
each credit point, a point being a semester hour. For example, the 
charge for matriculation and registration in courses leading to eight 
points credit would be $50.00. This is approximately the regular fee 
for tuition in the college. Fees for the first term are due and payable 
on or before October 13 and for the second term, on or before Feb- 
ruary 9. Remittances should be made to the Treasurer, and may be 
sent by mail, or, if more convenient, by the person of the instructor.

E-14. General Chemistry. — An introduction to the study of chem- 
istry, including a study of the elements, their classification and 
properties, and a study of the important compounds of each element. 
During the course constant reference is made to manufacturing and 
industrial processes, and interpretation of the phenomenal material 


development of the present century is made in the light of the rapid 
increase in chemical knowledge. Each lecture will be illustrated by 
lecture experiments and the use of charts and industrial products. 
Two hours. Both semesters. Four points. Professor Bender. 

E-24. General Organic Chemistry.- — A study of the sources, classi- 
fication and type reactions of organic materials, of food-stuffs and 
their relation to nutrition, dyes, pharmaceuticals, explosives, coal 
tar intermediates, manufacturing processes and recent developments 
in this field of Chemistry The course will include a carefully se- 
lected series of demonstrations, the display of a large number of 
representative materials, and the use of about one hundred charts 
specially designed and prepared by the instructor. A knowledge of 
the elements of Chemistry will be assumed. Two hours. Both 
semesters. Four points. Professor Bender. 

Both of these courses will be given in popular language, as free 
from technical terms as possible. Laboratory work in connection 
with both courses can, if desired, be done on Saturdays in the college 
laboratories. Additional credits will be allowed upon the completion 
of such work. 


E-14a. Psychology, — Introductory course, intended to give the 
student a general knowledge of the phenomena of the mind; to lay 
the foundation for further psychological work; and to provide a 
psychological basis for the study of education, sociology and phil- 
osophy. First semester. Two points. Professor Hoke. 

E-14m. Child Psychology. — One hour per day. A course on the 
nature and development of intellect and character during childhood 
and adolescence. Two points. Second semester. Professor Hoke. 

E-24a. The Project Method of Teaching. — This course deals with 
the origin of the project method, its meaning and importance, dan- 
gers and difficulties and how they may be overcome. Each member 
of the class will be expected to make an independent study of project 
teaching as applied to some one special subject in which he or she 
is particularly interested and to present to the group an outline of 
plans by which all or some part of the course of study in that subject 
might be taught by one or more projects. First semester. Two 
points. Professor Hoke. 

E-24b. The Measurement of Intelligence.— This course in the 
measurement of intelligence will familiarize students with the history 
of the movement as well as with present developments in this field. 
A careful study will be made of the uses and methods of using the 
various intelligence test results. Members of the class will be taught 
how to administer the Stanford Revision and Extension of the Binet- 
Simon Scale, as well as the various group tests in most common use. 
Second semester. Two points. Professor Hoke.

E-14. Pennsylvania in the Federal Union. — This course covers the 
period from the adoption of the Constitution of the United States 
to the Civil War. The place of Pennsylvania in national affairs will 
be considered. The political and economic phases of our history 
will receive consideration. The course is especially adapted to the 
needs of those who teach in Pennsylvania and is designed to give 
a more intensive local view and at the same time a broader national 
outlook. Two hours. Both semesters. Four points. Professor

ing, and Methods of Teaching. The object of this department will 
be to afford teachers an opportunity of acquiring a superior knowl- 
edge of the intellectual and pedagogical fundamentals of music and 
music teaching. Those entering this course should have had some 
preparatory work in the study of Tonality, Scales, and in Singing, 
though no advanced degree of proficiency is prerequisite. Two hours.

matters as Socialism, Control of Immigration, Taxation Reform, The 
Cityward Movement, Crime and Correction and the various govern- 
mental reform movements are made the subject of extended con- 
sideration. Special effort is made to aid teachers in matters of 
practical politics touching their interests personally, as the use of 
the ballot, election laws, and local government, a knowedge of 
which should produce a greater sense of security for those occupying 
positions of leadership in the public life of the community. Both 
semesters. Four points. Professor Gingrich. 

E-24. American Government and Politics. — A study of the Ameri- 
can Constitution, the Federal Plan of Government, and the more
