*on of the lectures of courses without doing the work connected there- 
«rith are permitted to enroll in such courses as auditors without addi- 
tional charge. Before registering for work of this character a student 
must consult the Director or the instructor in charge of the course in 
which he wishes to be an auditor. 


Monday, June 20th, is registration day. Students should register on 
this Hate and be ready for class work on the morning of Tuesday, June 
21st. It is possible to register in advance and reserve rooms by sending 
a letter of application to the Director of the Summer School. Students 
are urged to make application for not more than nine credit hours. In- 
structors will not be held for courses for which less than five students 
apply. For this reason application should be made at an early date by 
mail for all content courses numbered from 101 to 199. 


Courses numbered from 1 to 99 with an S before the number, as, for 
example, Ed. S. 11, are special Summer School courses and are not 
offered during the regular collegiate year. 

Courses numbered from 101 to 199 with an S following the number, as 
Eng. 101 S, are modifications of courses of the same number in the 
University catalogue to meet Summer School conditions. 

Courses numbered from 101 to 199 without the S, as Agron. 101, are 
identical in every way with courses ot the same S) nibol and number in 
the University catalogue. 

The S3-mbo1s, for examples: Eng., Ed., Agron., refer to the subject- 
matter grouping under which such courses are found in the general 


The term hour is the unit of credit as in other scsbiun^, of the Uni- 
versity. A term credit hour is one lecture or recitation a week for a 
term, which is approximately twelve weeks in length. Two or three 
hours of laboratory or field work are counted as equivalent to one lecture 
or recitation During the summer session a lecture course meeting Wve 
times a week for six weeks, requiring outside work, is given a weight of 
three term credit hours, or two semester hours, or one 3'ear hour. All 
credit is listed as term credit hours. 

Since the courses are offered in the Colleges of Agriculture, Arts and 
Sciences, Education, Engineering, and Home Economics, all the regular 
courses and virtually all the special courses carry full academic credit 
toward a degree. Students completing the Summer School work in any 
of the subjects and passing a satisfactory examination are issued a 
certificate showing the amount and grade of the work done. 

Educational courses satisfactorily completed will be credited by he 
State Superintendent of Schools as follows: 

First, toward meeting the minimum requirements of professio lal 
preparation for teaching in the elementary schools of the state, viz., at 
least six weeks' attendance at a school of pedagogy; a renewal of rle- 
mentary teachers' certificates which requires six weeks' additional pro- 
fessional training for those of second and third grade; to meet the re- 
quirement for advancing the grade of elementary teachers' certificates. 

Second, toward meeting the minimum requirements of professio. lal 
preparation for teaching in high schools of the state and for renew^al of 
high school certificates. 

Third, toward meeting the minimum requirements of professional 
preparation for teachers of vocational agriculture and home economics 
and the renewal of vocational teachers' certificates. 


The large dormitory, Calvert Hall, is reserved for women students. In 
addition, Gerneaux Hall, used by the students in home economics as a 
practice house, will accommodate a limited number. The Y. M. C. A. Hut 
will accommodate a limited number of men. Students w^ho room in these 
dormitories will supply themselves with towels, pillows, pillow cases, 
sheets, and blankets. No additional charge is made for these rooms, 
but to secure them, early application should be made to the Director. 
Rooms may be reserved in advance, but will not be held later than noon 
of Tuesday, June 21. 

Students who desire to live in private homes may be accommodated in 
College Park or in the nearby towns of Hyattsville, Riverdale and 


A registration fee of $6.00 will be chaVged to all applicants. This fee 
will be used to defray the expenses for athletic equipment, certain extra- 
curriculum activities, library, janitor service, and general use of Uni- 
versity property. A special fee which is' named in connection with the 
description of certain courses will be charged for the use of laboratory 
and other materials. One-half of the fees, including board, 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 $30.00 
for the entire term, or at the rate of $6.50 per week. Day students who 
stay for lunch only may procure the same at the rate of 35 cents per meal. 

The total expenses for the terms, exclusive of laundry and railroad 
fare, need not exceed .$45.00. Students may have a reasonable amount 
of laundry work done at the University laundry at the rate of approxi- 
mately seventy-five cents per week. 


The library is housed in a separate two-story building and contains 
10,000 bound books and 5,000 United States Government documents, un- 
bound reports and pamphlets. On the first floor is collected material 
relating to agriculture and related scientific subjects. The general read- 
ing room is on the second floor. All material is on open shelves where 
the students can easily locate it. Through the Inter-Library Loan Sys- 
tem of the Library of Congress and other government-owned libraries 
the University of Maryland library is able to supplement its reference 
material by either borrowing books from these government libraries or 
by personal work in them. 

The library is open from 8 a. m. to 5.30 p. m., Monday to Friday in- 
clusive, and on each of these evenings from 6.00 p. m. to 10.00 p. m. 
On Saturday from 8 a. m. to 12.30 p. m. 


In co-operation with the College Park Home and School Association 
and the school officials of Prince George's County, an observation school 
is maintained for demonstrational purposes. The school is essentially 
rural in character and embraces grades one to six, inclusive. 

The school serves as a vacation school to the pupils of the College 
Park School and other communities and affords them an opportunity to 
make up deficiencies due to sickness and other causes and to review and 
round out instruction received during the regular school year. The 
school is free, but only a limited number of pupils may be accepted. 
Application for entrance to the school should be in the hands of the 
Director not later than a week prior to its opening. 

Through the courtesy of its executive committee, students ia education 
are given an opportunity to attend one meeting of the College Park Home 
and School Association. 


Conference hours are planned for two special purposes: (1) To give 
the student an opportunity to confer with the instructor on subjects 
relative to class work. (2) To serve as an hour during which round 
table discussions may be held on topics of common interest. Conference 
hours are arranged by individual instructors at the beginning of the 
session. i 


Arrangements are made with educators of national reputation to give 
special lectures from time to time in fields of particular interest to stu- 
dents in the Summer School. Special conference hours are arranged for 



such lectures in order that students may have an opportunity to me t 
leaders in their special lines of work. Details are announced in the 
weekly calendar. 


The University makes every effort to conserve the health of the stu- 
dents and maintains a hospital physician and competent nurse. The 
hospital is located on the campus. All cases of illness should be promptly 
reported to the University physician, Dr. W. A. Griffith, whose office is 
located in the University Infirmary, phone Berwyn 74-M. 


On Friday evenings during the session informal gatherings of stu- 
dents are held on the campus. The programs are varied. The hours 
from 8.30 to 11.00 are given over to various kinds of entertainments 
directed by student committees. These evenings afford agreeable relaxa- 
tion and enable the students of the Summer School to become well 
acquainted. Friday evening, July 8th, will be "Eastern Shore Night" 
and Friday evening, July 15th, ''Western Shore Night." In the fifth week 
of the session the class in Recreational Leadership will present an open- 
air pageant. Community sings will be held at various times during the 
session. Students will also be given an opportunity to engage in an 
evening play hour under the supervision of the Department of Physical 


The vicinity of College Park holds a wealth of historic and geologic
