General Information 

The fourth session of the Maryland State College of Agriculture 
Summer School will begin on Tuesday, June 25th, and continue for 
six weeks, ending August 3rd. 

The work of the Summer School was designed originally for rural 
teachers, and the attendance has been largely of that class. Special 
attention will be given to the needs of these teachers again this year. 
It has been found, however, that there are many persons who seek 
a general knowledge of theoretical and practical agriculture and other 
subjects w^ho can come to the College conveniently during the sum- 
mer session. Extended courses are offered to meet the needs of these 
people. The program of studies has been enlarged so that there will 
be opportunity for advanced study for teachers of all grades of 
school work. The instruction in the Summer School, which is an 
integral part of the College work, is free to all residents of ^Maryland. 


The Maryland State College of Agriculture is located in Prince 
George's County, Marsdand, on the Washington Division of the B. 
& 0. R. R., eight miles from AVashington, and thirty-two miles from 
Baltimore; and on the City and Suburban Electric Railway, eight 
miles from Washington and twelve miles from Laurel. 

The College grounds front on the Baltimore and AVashington Boule- 
vard. The site of the College is particularly beautiful. The build- 
ings occupy the crest of a commanding hill, which is covered with 
forest trees, and overlooks a broad valley and a number of suburban 
towns. In front, extending to the Boulevard, is a broad, rolling 
campus, the drill ground and athletic field of the students. A quar- 
ter 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, orchards, vineyards, poultry, etc., used 
for experimental purposes and demonstration work in agriculture. 


The new dormitory, Calvert Hall, is reserved for the women stu- 
dents. The house used by former presidents of the College, which 
is located on the campus, will be used by the students of the Home 

Economies courses. This building will contain the class rooms and 
laboratories of this department. Students who desire to live in pri- 
vate homes may be accommodated in the village or in the neayby 
towns of Hyattsville, Riverdale, and Bei'^vyn. A select list of room- 
ing and boarding places will be furnished upon request. Dormitory 
students will supply themselves with towels, pillow cases, sheets, and 
a blanket. To secure room accommodations in the dormitory, early 
application to the Director is necessary. ' 


Monday and Tuesday, June 25th and 26th, will be registration 
days. Students should register on these days and be ready foi class 
work Wednesday, the 27th. Students may register in advance and 
reserve rooms by filling out the enclosed blank and mailing it to the 
Director of the Summer School. 


The instruction is free to all students of Mar>dand and the District 
of Columbia. A registration fee of five dollars will be charged to all 
applicants. This fee will be used to defray the expense of athletic 
property, library, janitor service, and general use of College property. 
A special fee, which is named in connection with the description of 
the College credit courses, will be charged for the use of laboratory 

One-half of the fees, including board and room, must be paid upon 
registration, and the remainder at the beginning of the third week 
of the term. 

The cost of board at the College dining hall will be twenty-seven 
dollars for the entire term, or at the rate of four and one-half dollars 
per week. The room rent in the dormitory is one dollar per weeK. 
The Board and room in the villages varies from five to seven dollars 
per w^eek. A cafateria lunch will be served at noon for the conveni- 
ence of day students. 

Credits and Certificates. 


The State College will give entrance or college credit, respectively, 
in subjects in which the student performs the requisite amount of 
work. College credit courses may be pursued only by students who 
have fulfilled college entrance requirements. Students completing 
the Summer School work in any of the subjects, and passing a satis- 
factory examination, will be issued a certificate showing the amount 
and grade of work done. Students not registered in the College are 
issued a certificate of attendance. 


The College and Experiment Station library will be open for use 
of students. It contains a large number of carefully chosen reference 
books in the sciences, history, biography, poetry, and the standard 
works of fiction. In addition, it contains a complete set of State and 
National reports and surveys. 

Teachers pursuing the review courses should bring with them any 
text-books relating to the subjects in which they expect to receive 

Conference Hour. 

The conference hour is planned for two specific purposes. First, 
to give the student an opportunity to confer with instructors on sub- 
jects relative to their school work. Second, an hour during which 
men of prominence in their special lines of work will address the 
students, or conduct *' Round Table ^' discussions. These lectures will 
be by appointment. 


The vicinity of College Park abounds in places of historic and geo- 
logic interest. The College farm, with its experiments in fertilizers, 
field crops, market gardens, fruits, dairy herd, and poultry plant, 
will afford ample opportunity for useful study. The District of Co- 
lumbia, which is only four miles distant, will give the students an 
unusual opportunity to visit and study the National Departments of 
our government. Following the plan of previous years, prearranged 
excursions to these places of interest will be the features of Saturday's 

Faculty of Summer School.
