MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. 

HISTORY. 

"An act to establish and endow an agricultural college in the 
State of Maryland" was passed by the legislature of the State in 
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: . 

Wherkas, It has been represented to the Legisla- 
ture, that certain wise and virtuous citizens are 
desirous of instituting and establishing in some con- 
venient 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 agriculturists have so far been lament- 
ably neglected ; and 

Whereas, It is the province and duty of the 
Legislature to encourage and aid the philanthropic 
citizens in their efforts to disseminate useful knowl- 
edge by establishing an Agricultural College and 
Model Farm, which shall, in addition to the usual 
course of scholastic training, particularly indoctri- 
nate the youth of Maryland, theoretically and prac- 
tically, 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, entitles it to 
attain. 



10 

This was the first effort in the Western Hemisphere to use 
scientific investigation for the advancement of the vocation of 
Agriculture, since at that time no other institution of a similar 
character existed in the United States. Under the charter thus 
granted to a party of public-spirited individuals, the original 
College building was erected, and its doors were opened to stu- 
dents 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 valu- 
able 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 certain conditions to the establishment and main- 
tenance of at least one college in which the "leading object" 
should 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" might "respectively 
prescribe, in order to promote the liberal and practical education 
of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and professions 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, and such it is at the 
present time. ' 

During recent years the College has made a steady growth. 
This fact is evidenced by the increased number of students avail- 
ing themselves of its facilities; by the erection of many new 
buildings — the library and gymnasium buildings, the chemical 
laboratory, Morrill Hall, the sanatarium, the administration 
building and barracks, and the engineering building; as well as 
by the establishment of the Department of Farmers' Institutes 
and the State Departments of Horticulture, Entomology and 
Vegetable Pathology, and Chemistry ( Fertilizer and Feed Con- 
trol). Under such favorable auspices the institution has con- 



11 



tinued to grow, and has become the most important factor in 
the agricultural and industrial development of the State. 

The State Bureau of Forestry cooperates with the College, the 
Director being, by the terms of his appointment, Lecturer on 
Forestry at the Agricultural College. 



LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION. 

The Maryland Agricultural College is located in Prince George 
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. Hyattsville is the telegraph station. 
Telephone connection is made with the Chesapeake and Potomac 
lines. 

The College grounds front on the Baltimore and Washington 
turnpike. The suburban town of Hyattsville is two and one- 
half miles to the south, and Laurel, the largest town in the 
county, is thirteen miles to the north on the same road. Connec- 
tion with these towns and with Washington may be had by 
steam and electric railway. The site of the College is particu- 
larly beautiful. The buildings occupy the crest of a command- 
ing hill, covered with forest trees, and overlooking the entire 
surrounding country. In front, extending to the turnpike, is a 
broad, rolling campus, the drill ground and athletic field of the 
students. In the rear are the farm buildings and barn. A 
quarter of a mile to the northeast are the buildings of the Experi- 
ment Station. The College farm contains about three hundred 
acres, and is devoted to fields, gardens, orchards, vineyard, 
poultry yards, etc., used for experimental purposes and demon- 
stration work in agriculture and horticulture. 

The general appearance of the College grounds is exceedingly 
attractive. They are tastefully laid off in lawns and terraces, 
with ornamental shrubbery and flower beds, and the view from 
the g^ove and campus cannot be surpassed. 



12 

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 cases of illness among the 
students for fifteen years. 

COLLEGE BUILDINGS. 

The original barracks, erected in 1859, is a five-story brick 
building, containing the student quarters and the Domestic De- 
partment. The dormitories are large, well ventilated and pro- 
vided with fire escapes, bath and water rooms. All the buildings 
are lighted by gas and electricity and heated by steam from the 
central plant on the College grounds. 

In 1894 the building used as the gymnasium and library was 
erected. The gymnasium, on the ground floor, is well furnished 
with modern athletic appliances. The library and reading room 
is on the second floor, and is large, well-lighted and convenient 
for the purpose. 

The Departments of Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineer- 
ing and the Department of Physics are located in the two-story 
brick building erected in 1896, the brick annex 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 build- 
ings previously erected, a concrete whole. In this group of build- 
ings 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, etc. The equipment is modern in every respect and 
the facilities for work in the above named departments are 
greatly increased. 

The chemical building was completed in 1897, and is now 
thoroughly equipped. It contains several lecture rooms and labo- 
ratories for practical work and the analysis of fertilizers and 
feeding material for domestic animals. This work is assigned by 
an Act of the General Assembly to the Professor of Chemistry 
at this College, who is thus the State Chemist. 



13 

Another addition to the group of College buildings is Morrill 
Hall erected in 1898. This building provides accommodations 
for the Departments of Agriculture, Horticulture, Entomology, 
Vegetable Pathology and Veterinary Science. A greenhouse for 
work in entomology and vegetable pathology was erected in 1904, 

The College Sanitarium, completed in 1901, has proved a most 
efficient means of isolating infectious diseases which might other- 
wise have become epidemic, thus seriously embarrassing College 
work. It contains ample room for all emergencies, and is fur- 
nished with modern hospital facilities. An experienced nurse is 
in constant attendance, and the College surgeon is present every 
day at a fixed hour to prescribe for any cadet requiring his 
services. 

In 1904 there was added the Administration Building which 
contains not only the auditorium and offices, but dormitories. 
These latter double the capacity of the College for the accom- 
modation of students. 

Appreciating the needs of the institution, the State Legislature 
has from time to time appropriated funds wherewith buildings 
could be erected or renovated and equipment secured. 

Among recent improvements are: A complete renovation of 
the original College barracks; a modern steam heating plant; 
gas and electric lighting; lavatories; steam laundry; forced ven- 
tilation, etc., all of which furnish quarters and classrooms with 
unusually good sanitary arrangements. 

GENERAL AIM AND PURPOSE. 

The Agricultural College is the State school of science and 
technology. While seeking, first of all, to perform the functions 
of an agricultural college, its sphere of work has been widened 
to embrace all the sciences akin to agriculture, and all the arts 
related to mechanical training. To these special and prominent 
lines of work have been added such branches of study as are 
necessary for a liberal education, for the development of the in- 
telligent citizen and the making of general culture. The purpose 
of this college is to give to young men anxious to prepare them- 



14 

selves for the active duties of life such training in the sciences 
or in the mechanical workshop as will enable them to take their 
places in the industrial world well prepared for the fierce com- 
petition 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 ordi- 
nary 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 disbursement by the Government to those classes 
upon whom the safety and prosperity of the State so largely 
depend. 

While the College provides, as will hereafter be explained, 
several distinct courses of instruction, looking to the special 
training of the student in agriculture, engfineering and the 
sciences, the fact is clearly kept in view that a sound foundation 
must be laid for each and every course. Successful specialization 
is only possible after the student has prepared for it by a thor- 
ough training in the essentials. 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 Col- 
lege 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 paragraph. 

It begins with the student in his 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 devel- 
opment in mental strength, range of information and power of 
expression and thought. At the beginning of his second, or 
Sophomore, year the differentiation may be said to begin along 
those lines in which he shows most natural aptitude. This 
gradual specialization continues during his third, or Junior, year, 
until in his last, or Senior, year, his work consists chiefly of a 



■ - 15 

few closely connected topics, in which he is thus able thoroughly 
to prepare himself. With the present equipment of the labora- 
tories and work-shops a student is able to become so proficient 
in his chosen line of work that when he leaves the College a suc- 
cessful career is open to him if he chooses to avail himself of it. 
The Agricultural GDllege is, legitimately, the crowning point 
of the public school system of Maryland. Its aim in particular 
is to provide a higher education for the g^raduates of the county 
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 especially 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 or grammar school to the 
College a possible one for all those actuated by an earnest desire 
to complete their education.

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE. 

W. T. L. TALIAFERRO, PROFESSOR. 

GRANVILLE HIBBERD, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. 

F. W. BESLEY, LECTURER ON FORESTRY. 

The Agricultural Department offers three courses; 

I. A four-year course leading to the degree of Bachelor of 
Science. 

II. A two-year course, for proficiency in which a certificate 
is awarded. 

III. A ten-week winter course, for which credit is given toward 
the two-year or four-year course. 

Education is transforming the farms into veritable workshops, 
whose products, in the aggregate, more than equal those of any 
other industry of the country, and which, under the influence of 
more general intelligence, are capable of indefinite extension. 
In this work there is need of the trained investigator to discover 
the natural laws which underlie the phenomena of plant and 
animal life, and also of educated farmers with skill and intelli- 
gence to receive principles and apply them in practical farming. 

These courses are so arranged as to furnish a good foundation 
upon which the student may build a successful career as a farmer, 
or develop into a specialist along some line pertaining to the 
farming industry. The studies to be pursued are recognized as 
being necessary to fully equip the student for the highest order 
of work and for the greatest usefulness. 

The College farm consists of two hundred and sixty-five acres 
of land, which is operated by the Maryland Agricultural Experi- 
mental Station. Students of the Agricultural Course are made 
acquainted with the work of the Station from time to time, and 
because of the College and Station's close association an excellent 
opportunity is afforded the student to study the cultivation and 
growing of crops, the application of manures and fertilizers, the 
care of stock, the selection of seed from growing crops, the 
judging of the several classes of animals and all the work of the 
practical farmer. 



18 

DIVISION OF AGRONOMY. 

The Division of Agronomy takes up the agricultural work per- 
taining to the field and its crops. A number of courses are 
offered. These treat of farm crops, their classification, adapta- 
tion to soil and climate and methods of culture ; soils, their 
properties, and how to care for them and make them more pro- 
ductive and fertile by crop rotation, and by the application of 
manures and fertilizers; farm management, how to make the 
farm a source of pleasure and profit by employing economic 
business principles and practices; farm machinery, the kind of 
tools to use for preparing the land, cultivating and harvesting 
the crops. A new soils laboratory has been added to this Depart- 
ment. In this laboratory the student has an excellent oppor- 
tunity to study the physical properties of the different kinds of 
soils. A separate desk and ample apparatus is provided each 
student to perform experiments for himself. 

COURSES OFFERED. 

1. Elementary Agronomy. This is an introductory course 
designed to acquaint the young student with the fundamental 
principles of good farm practice in the handling of soils and the 
profitable production of farm crops. At the same time it seeks 
to develop an interest in improved agriculture by showing its 
capabilities under proper management. Instruction is given by 
field and laboratory exercises with explanatory lectures. 

Sub-Freshman Year — ^Third Term, 2 practical periods per 
week. 

2. Farm Crops. In this course the production of farm crops 
is considered in detail as to history, uses and requirements, local 
adaptations, varieties, fertilization, cultivation and harvesting. 
A special feature is the study of crop improvement by breeding 
and selection. Very much of this work is of a practical nature 
in the laboratory or on the farm. 

The texts used are Morrow and Hunt's "Soils and Crops," 
Hunt's "The Cereals in America," Shamel's "Corn Judging." 



19 

Freshman Year — Third Term, 1 theoretical and 4 practical 
periods per week. 

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

1910-11. Junior Year — Second and Third Term, 2 theoretical 
and 2 practical periods per week. 

3. Soils. The study of the physical and chemical conditions 
of the soil in their relation to profitable agriculture. The soil is 
the basis of all agriculture, and a knowledge of its properties and 
functions cannot be too highly emphasized. The study of this 
important subject is conducted by means of lectures, text-books, 
laboratory and field work. No State in the Union possesses a 
greater variety of soils than Maryland, and great attention is 
paid to the study of soil types in their relation to profitable 
agriculture. 

A well equipped soil laboratory and the wide variety of soils 
found on the College farm offer exceptional advantages in the 
theoretical and practical study of this important subject. 

The text-book used is "The Soil," by King. 

Sophomore and First Year — First and Second Term, 2 theoreti- 
cal and 4 practical periods per week. 

4. Farm Drainage. Practical work in open ditching and 
under drains is provided for the students on the Experiment 
Station farm. Special attention is given to the principles and 
practice of tile drainage. 

The text-book used in this course is Waring's "Drainage for 
Profit and Health." 

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

5. Plant Production. This course is intended only for those 
students who are specializing in agronomy. It consists of 
field and laboratory work in the study of the handling of fall 
sown and fall harvested crops. Great attention is given in this 
course to a careful note-taking and study of the results obtained 



20 

in breeding work in corn and other fall maturing crops on the 
Experiment Station farm. 

Junior and Second Year — First Term, 3 theoretical and 4 prac- 
tical periods per week. 

1910-11. Senior Year — First Term, 3 theoretical and 2 prac- 
tical periods per week. 

6. Fertilizers, Of vital interest to the eastern and southern 
farmer of the present day is the fertilizer question. Between it 
and the profit and loss account is a very close connection, and 
frequently 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 and Second Year — Third Term, 2 theoretical and 4 
practical periods per week. 

1910-11. Junior and Senior Year — Second Term, 3 theoretical 
and 4 practical periods per week. 

7. Farm Machinery, Lectures and practical work. 
Junior Year — Third Term, 2 theoretical and 4 practical 

periods per week. 

Second Year — First Term, 2 theoretical and 4 practical periods 
per week, 

1910-11. Senior Year — Third Term, 2 theoretical and 4 prac- 
tical periods per week. 

8. Farm Management. Lectures and practical work. 
Junior and Second Year — First Term, 2 theoretical periods per 

week.

DIVISION OF ANIMAL HUSBANDRY. 

The Division 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 estab- 
lished at the Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station which 
are of use to the student in his studies. In addition to the supply 
of stock on the farm the proximity of the College to Washington 
and Baltimore makes it possible for the student to get excellent 
material for study. The Heurich dairy farm, close by, furnishes 
an excellent example in dairy farming. It is quite evident that 
there is but one way to make a young man a proficient judge of 
livestock, and that is by training the eye. In all of the lecture 
and laboratory work outlined in the courses the work is demon- 
strated with living specimens. 

New dairy barns are erected at the Experiment Station. These 
are models of sanitation. A class-room for judging live stock is 
being planned for occupancy in the near future. 



23 

A growing library of herd-books is available to the student of 
pedigrees. These books give a fund of information concerning 
heredity, fecundity and other breed characteristics. 

COURSES OFFERED. 

20. Elementary Animal Husbandry. This course consists 
of lectures and practical demonstrations in the judging, selecting 
and feeding for specific purposes of certain classes of domestic 
animals, together with a very elementary course in dairying.

DEPARTMENT OF BOTANY AND VEGETABLE 

PATHOLOGY. 

J. B. S. NORTON, PROFESSOR. 

A. J. NORMAN, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. 

E. P. WALLS, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. 

The courses in Botany are intended to give such knowledge of 
the vegetable kingdom as is a proper element in general culture; 
tc train the student mind in observation, comparison, generaliza- 
tion and other mental processes essential to true scientific 
methods in any work; and to furnish a basis for practical studies 
directly connected 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 especially 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 pro- 
fessional 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 dis- 
secting microscopes, preserved specimens for illustration and a 
representative collection of Maryland plants; microtome and 
other instruments together with reagents and apparatus for histo- 
logical work and physiological experiments ; and a culture room, 
sterilizers, incubators and other facilities for the study of plant 
diseases. 

Advanced students have an opportunity to observe the work 
being done in the laboratory of Vegetable Pathology and green- 
house of the State Horticultural Department, and, if competent, 
to assist in the same. Special attention is given to students who 
wish practice in the treatment of plant diseases, as it is the desire 
of the Department to encourage young men to engage in this 
work as a business. 

60. Plant LiFE. The course is so arranged as to give the 
student an idea of the wiork taken up in the various branches of 
botany, with the view of better enabling him to decide later 
whether he wishes to specialize in this subject. 

Preparatory Year — Third Term, 2 practical periods per week. 

61. Elementary Botany. This course takes up a study of 
the names of the common plants and discussions of their ecology 
and economic importance. 

Sub-Freshman Year — First Term, 2 practical periods per week. 

62. Seeds and Weeds, By examination and careful study the 
student becomes familiar with the ordinary field and garden 
seeds, and with the weed seeds which are commonly found as 
adulterants. He is thus enabled to identify these at sight. A 
study of the common weeds is also pursued. 

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



28 

63. General Principles. This is an elementary course in the 
general principles of anatomy, morphology and physiology of the 
higher plants. The structure and types of seed, root, stem, 
leaves, flowers and friut are studied in the laboratory, with a brief 
consideration of the functions of the different plant organs, a 
more complete course in plant physiology (66) being given later. 

There is also field work, with the manual on the native flora, 
designed to give a knowledge of the common Maryland plants 
and their position in the classification of the vegetable kingdom. 
The ecology of the plants examined in the field is also considered 
and includes their relation to soils, water supply, light and other 
factors in their environment, cross pollination, dissemination of 
seeds, plant societies, etc. Each student makes a collection of at 
least fifty plants from some part of the State. 

Bergen and Davis' "Principles of Botany" is the principal text- 
book used. 

Reference books: Gray's "Field, Forest and Garden Botany,''

DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY. 

H. B. MCDONNELL, PROFESSOR. 
I. V. STONE, INSTRUCTOR. 

R. B. DEEMER, ASSISTANT. 

T. D. JARRELL, ASSISTANT. 
CORNELIUS BEATTY, ASSISTANT. 

This Department is charged with two distinct classes of work. 
(1) The State fertilizer and food inspection, and (2) the instruc- 
tion of students. The State work necessitates the publication of 
the "Quarterly" bulletin, which is usually made up of the results 
of the analyses of fertilizers or feeding stuffs, and is sent free of 
charge to all Maryland farmers who apply. Students do no part 
of the State work, the assistants being invariably college gradu- 
ates. However, this work serves as a valuable object lesson to 
the advanced students. 

The Chemical Laboratory Building is devoted entirely to 
chemistry. It is new and, not including basement, is two stories 
high. On the first floor are the laboratories for the State fertili- 
zer and food control work, office, lecture room and balance room. 
On the second floor are three laboratories for the use of sti^- 
dents — one for each class — a student's balance room with first- 
class chemical and assay balances and a supply room. The assay 
furnaces are in the basement. Each student is provided with a 
working desk, lockers, reagents and apparatus. Additional 
apparatus and materials are provided from the supply room, as 
needed. 

The Department is provided with a small, but well-selected, 
library of standard reference books on chemistry, to which 
additions are made from time to time. 

Instruction in chemistry is begun with the Sophomore Year, 
four hours per week being devoted to lectures and recitations, 
and two to four hours to practical work in the laboratory by 
the student, under the supervision of the instructor. In this 
way he comes in direct contact with the substances studied, 
having at hand ample facilities for learning their properties. 



32 • ; 

Special attention is given to the elements and compounds of 
practical and economic importance, such as the air, water and 
soil, the elements entering into the composition of plants and 
animals, the useful metals, etc. The course in the Sophomore 
Year is intended to give the student that practical and theoretical 
knowledge of elementary chemistry, which is essential in the 
education of every man, no matter what his vocation. It also 
serves as a foundation for advanced work in chemistry, if such 
a course is chosen. 

Advanced work in chemistry begins with the Junior Year, if 
the Course in Chemistry is selected, and the larger part of the 
student's time is devoted to some branch of theoretical or prac- 
tical chemistry during the rest of his course, as outlined else- 
where. 

The object of the Course in Chemistry is to prepare the 
graduate for positions in agricultural colleges, experiment sta- 
tions, the United States Department of Agriculture, or the 
various industries that require the services of trained chemists. 
The demand for our graduates for such positions is far in excess 
of the supply.

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING. 

For the session of 1910-11, the Electrical Engineering Course 
is offered to the members of the Freshman, Sophomore and 
Junior Classes. The work of the course is so arranged as to 
give the student a thorough understanding of the fundamental 
principles of the various branches of electrical engineering, and 
at the same time to teach him to apply these principles to the 
practical problems with which the engineer has to deal. This 
purpose is carried. out by means of lecftures and recitations in the 
class-room, supplemented by practical work in the laboratories 
and drawing room. 

Equipment. The Electrical Engineering Laboratories are 
located in the basement and first floor of the east wing of the new 
engineering building. The rooms on the first floor are used 
for lectures, recitations, and experimental demonstrations by 
the instructor; and the basement contains the dynamo room and 
the electrical engineering testing room. 

, The electrical engineering testing room is fitted up with such 
appliances as are used to the best advantage in engineering 
practice. Special effort has been made to purchase only the best 
instruments, as the use of poorer grades influences the stu- 
dent unfavorably. With poor instruments he cannot be taught 
to do satisfactory work and he becomes careless in the hand- 
ling of them. 

Among other things the following apparatus has been pur- 
chased for the testing laboratory: 



41 

A Queen & Co. standard photometer, for measuring the dis- 
tribution of light from incandescent lamps, with all the neces- 
sary instruments and adjustments, including a Lummer-Brod- 
hun photometer screen and carriage and a universal rotating 
socket for the test lamp ; a number of direct current and alter- 
nating current voltmeters ranging from 0.0001 to 150 volts ; am- 
meters ranging from 0.0004 to 50 amperes; a Siemens' electro- 
dynamometer of 60 amperes capacity; and an integrating watt- 
meter. The above instruments are made by Weston and Queen 
& Co. In addition there are D'Arsonval galvanometers, both bal- 
listic and light movement, furnished with lamp scales ; standard 
resistance boxes and bridges, including a very accurate decade 
resistance box; double and single contact keys and commutating 
keys. 

The arc lamps, which have been purchased, include both direct 
current and alternating current multiple arcs and a luminous arc 
lamp with an inverted concentric diffuser. 

The laboratory is so wired that connection may be made 
leadily with any part of the College lighting plant and with any 
of the apparatus in the dynamo room. 

The dynamo room contains the following: — A 10 kilowatt 
General Electric rotary converter of the latest type with speed 
limit and end play devices, to be used as a synchronous motor 
and as an alternating current generator for testing purposes; a 
5 horse-power General Electric commutating pole motor with 
controller for varying speeds ; and a Westinghouse 5 horse-power 
compound direct current motor. These motors are to be used 
both as motors and generators. 

A blue Vermont marble panel is used to mount the necessary 
circuit-breaker, rheostats, switches, etc., to control the rotary 
converter as well as the various circuits in the dynamo room 
and testing laboratory. Wire and water rheostats are arranged 
for load and regulation. Incandescent lamp-boards are so 
arranged that they may receive, at the proper voltage, from 
0.04 to 20 amperes current. In addition to the special elec- 



42 

trical engineering equipment, the College lighting plant will be 
used for illustrative and experimental purposes. This plant con- 
tains, together with other apparatus useful in teaching electrical 
engineering, two Bullock generators of 40 kilowatts total capa- 
city, and a sWitch-board equipped with a number of Weston am- 
meters, voltmeters and circuit breakers, and various types of 
rheostats. 

An 8-inch Waltham bench lathe, with all the necessary at- 
tachments, has been installed in the dynamo room for the use of 
students in practical thesis work, and for making small articles, 
such as binding posts, connectors, etc., for use in the labora- 
tories. 

Such other apparatus as is necessary for carrying on the work 
with alternating and direct current, will be purchased as the 
funds permit. 

COURSES OFFERED. 

The subjects outlined constitute the work in electrical engi- 
neering through the Junior Year.

electricity, dealing with the phenomena of electricity in its po- 
tential form, and the conception of electric potential, quantity, 
capacity, etc. ; kinetic electricity, including the study of the fun- 
damental laws and units, as Ohm's Law, Joules' Law, units of 
current, electromotive force, resistance, etc. ; theory of magne- 
tism, with its phenomena and forces ; and electro-magnetism, 
which is the foundation for dynamo electric machine design and 
construction.

per week; Third Term, 4 theoretical periods per week. 

121. Electro-Magnetism and the Construction oe Dynamos. 
Beginning with the Junior Year and extending throughout the 
course, the principles involved in the construction and operation 



43 

of both direct and alternating current dynamos and motors are 
taught. In teaching this subject, especial care is exercised that 
the mathematical and graphical developments shall be concise 
and logical. The direct current machine is first examined, and 
this results in a discussion of the different forms of armature, 
their windings, cores, commutators, etc.; the various fields; the 
methods of arranging the windings for different purposes; the 
shape and material of the magnetic circuits ; the bearings, shafts, 
and bed-plates; the methods of insulation; a full description 
of the materials of construction; the selection of types suited to 
the performance of specific duties ; and the proper method for 
installing and operating. The characteristic curves and efficien- 
cies of the different types are also illustrated at some length.

Junior Year — First and Third Term, 3 theoretical periods per 
week; Second Term, 4 theoretical periods per week. 
1910-11. Junior Year — 3 theoretical periods per week. 

122. Alternating Currents and Alternating Current 
Machinery. A complete study is made of the fundamental 
phenomena and theories dealing with the effects of alternating 
currents, both single-phase and poly-phase. Included in this 
course there are a large number of problems, both analytical and 
graphical, which are especially valuable for giving a clear appre- 
ciation of the effects of self-inductance, mutual-inductance, and 
capacity in single-phase and poly-phase alternating current cir- 
cuits. 

The theory, construction and practical applications of single- 
phase and poly-phase alternating current machinery, which in- 
cludes generators, synchronous, induction and repulsion motors, 
rotary converters, transformers, regulators, etc., are taken in 
detail. 

The fundamental principles of the machinery are developed in 
the class-room and applied concurrently in the laboratory and 
designing room with special reference to their practical utiliza- 
tion. 

Texts: Franklin and Esty's "Alternating Currents," and 
McAllister's "Alternating Current Motors."

Second Term, 3 theoretical periods per week; Third Term, 5 theo- 
retical periods per week. 

123. EivECTRic Lighting and Powe;r Plants. This work 
begins with the study of the different systems of distribution 
used in arc and incandescent lighting, and the discussion of the 
advantages and disadvantages of each from both financial and 
engineering standpoints. Attention is given to the best methods 
of obtaining good regulation, as upon this satisfactory lighting 
service depends. The proper arrangement and wiring of switch- 
boards and the instruments which they contain, as w<ell as the 
latest methods of protection from lightning, are treated in detail. 

The student is made familiar with the manufacture and char- 
acteristics of the incandescent arc and many new forms of 
electric lamps; the selection of lamps for specific commercial 
duties; the principles underlying correct interior and exterior 
illumination; the manufacture of cables for underground work; 
and the materials used in overhead and conduit systems of dis- 
tribution. 

The proper arrangement, the type and the size of boilers, 
engines and dynamos in a central station for lighting and power 
purposes, are obtained by the* study of typical plants in this 
country and abroad. Many problems involving the calculation of 
the wire and material needed for the various systems of distri- 
bution are given. These problems require for their solution a 
knowledge of the rules of the Underwriters Association.

DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH AND CIVICS. 

F. B. BOMB^RGDR, PROIfESSOR. 
CHARLES S. RICHARDSON, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. 

This Department, as its name implies, covers the work of two 
distinct courses of instruction. It seeks to prepare the student 
by systematic training in the history, structure and use of the 
English language, for the highest development of his mental 
powers and for the complex duties and relations of life; and, 
further, to fit him for the active and intelligent exercise of his 
rights and duties as a man and citizen. 

The course in English, of a necessity, lies at the base of all 
other courses of instruction. Clear and comprehensive knowl- 
edge 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 practical 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 cul- 
ture which has always been the distinguishing mark of the liber- 
ally educated man. The English work, which is common to all 
courses, consists of the study of the structure of the English 
language, English and American literature, theoretical and prac- 
tical rhetoric, logic, psychology, critical reading and analysis, 
and constant exercise in expression, composition and theme writing. 



. 49 

The course in civics is especially designed to prepare young 
men for the active duties of citizenship. The first year is de- 
voted to the study of general history, followed by the principles 
of civil government, constitutional history, political economy, 
with special reference to current, social and industrial problems, 
and, finally, lectures on the elements of business law.

DEPARTMENT OF ENTOMOLOGY AND ZOOLOGY. 

T. B. SYMONS, PROFESSOR. 

L. M. PEAIRS, assistant PROFESSOR. 

E. N. CORY, ASSISTANT. 

Instruction is g^ven in this Department with a view first, of 
giving the student the general knowledge of invertebrate and 



53 

vertebrate zoology, which is necessary as a foundation science 
for an agricultural education; second, to fit the student in 
elementary and advanced entomology, both economic and sys- 
tematic, so that he may pursue this specialty after graduation. A 
course in economic entomology and zoology is also given to pro- 
vide those students who are specializing in any of the allied 
agricultural sciences, with the information which is essential to 
their ideal development. 

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 con- 
ducted through this Department, there are special advantages for 
students in applied entomology. 

The reference library is unusually complete, containing in 
addition to the standard works, a majority of the principal ento- 
mological and zoological publications. The laboratory is sup- 
plied with a large collection of insects for the use of students, 
and is well equipped with microscopes and other apparatus neces- 
sary for practical work in entomology and zoology. 

The insectary of the State Horticultural Department and the 
Maryland Experiment Station is joined to the laboratory, and 
affords facilities for special investigation to a limited number of 
advanced students. 

COURSES offered; 

220. Animal Lii^E ano Elementary Entomology. A con- 
sideration of animals and insects from a nature study standpoint. 
These courses are designed to show the student the importance 
of these subjects and to develop and foster an interest in nature. 

Preparatory Year — First Term, 2 practical periods per week. 
Sub-Freshman Year — Third Term, 2 practical periods per 
week. 

221. General Zoology. This course is offered to all students 
taking agriculture and allied sciences, and is introductory to all 
other work in this department. A study is made of the general 
form, characteristics, habits and classification of animals from 



64 

the lowest to the highest forms. It is designed to give the stu- 
dent that knowledge of animal life without which his education 
is incomplete. 

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

DEPARTMENT OF HORTICULTURE. 

C. p. CLOSE, PROFESSOR. 
HERMAN BECKENSTRATER, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR. 

The Horticultural Department offers two courses: (a) a four- 
year course leading to the degree of Bachelor of science; (b) a 
two-year course for proficiency in which a certificate is awarded. 

The instruction in horticulture is specially based upon practi- 
cal and economic fruit growing, truck farming and commercial 
floriculture. The orchards, gardens and new greenhouses of the 
Experiment Station offer to students a splendid opportunity to 
observe and study modern methods of fruit growing, vegetable 
growing and the forcing of greenhouse flowers and vegetables. 
The work in floriculture is supplemented by trips to modern es- 
tablishments of successful greenhouse men in Baltimore, Wash- 
ington and vicinity. Similar trips to supplement the work in 
landscape gardening and truck and fruit growing, are made from 
time to time. These trips are a portion of the regular work 
and are usually made on Saturday. Usually the expenses are 
paid by the College.

DEPARTMENT OF LANGUAGES. 

THOMAS H. SPENCE, PROEESSOR. 

The Department of Languages embraces the study of three 
branches : Latin, French and German. All students are required 
to take the courses in German. Students may elect to take Latin 
in the Freshman Year in place of History, provided that they 



62 



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 rea- 
soning; second, to give the student a more thorough and com- 
prehensive knowledge of his own language than he could other- 
wise acquire. Especial 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 intelligently the works of French and German masters 
in the domain of science, for, frequently there are no English 
versions of their works. As the student becomes more familiar 
with foreign scientific terms and construction, he is required to 
translate treatises bearing upon the special line of work which 
he may be pursuing. The study of French is offered as an option 
in the Senior Year. 

LATIN COURSES. 

260. Grammar and Composition. The aim of this course, 
which is given in the Sub-Freshman Year, is to make the student 
conversant with Latin forms and terminations, and to enable him 
to read simple Latin prose. ' •

DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS. 

R. W. SILVESTER, PROEESSOR. 
HENRY T. HARRISON, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. 

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 acquisi- 
tion 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 view to the equipping of students for the 
more practical work soon to follow. 

The class work in mathematics in the several courses con- 
sists of arithmetic, bookkeeping, algebra, geometry (plane and 
solid), trigouometry, descriptive geometry, differential and in- 
tegral calculus, and their application to mechanics, engineering, 
physics and surveying. 

In the applied mathematics, bookkeeping is taught every stu- 
dent. No matter what vocation a man intends to follow, a knowl- 
edge of business forms and methods of systematic accounts is a 
requisite to success. To be able to use an ordinary compass or 
transit for the purpose of laying out, dividing and calculating 
the area of land, or of running outlines and leveling for the pur- 



65. 

pose of drainage, is a necessary accomplishment for every intel- 
ligent farmer.

DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING. 

HARRY GWINNER, PROFESSOR. 

HOWARD h. CRISP, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. 

FREDERICK F. MASON, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. 

This Department offers a Course in Mechanical Engineering 
leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engi- 
neering. It prepares young men to design and construct ma- 
chinery, to superintend engineering establishments, to become 
superintendents of construction and to teaCh mechanical engi- 
neering and manual training. 

The record of its graduates shows that the course is equipping 
such for immediate usefulness in the technical field. 

Instruction is given by means of lectures and recitations, ac- 
companied by a large amount of practice in the drafting rooms, 
shops and experimental laboratory. 

The program of the Department is arranged to embody the 



m 

two-fold belief that a thorough training is best secured by a 
study of the practical application of the principles involved, as 
well as of the principles. 

Equipment. The Mechanical Engineering Laboratories are 
situated in the engineering building, which contains the wood- 
working and machine shop, 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 circular saw, five 12-inch turning lathes, a grindstone, 
wood trimmer and 26-inch wood planer. 

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 smiths' 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 10-inch speed 
lathe, one 22-inch engine-lathe with compound rest, one 12-inch 
combined foot and power lathe, two 14-inch engine-lathes, one 
24-inch drill press, one No. 4 emery tool grinder, and an assort- 
ment of vises, taps, dies, pipe-tools and measuring instruments. 

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 Balti- 
more, and secured through the efforts of Rear-Admiral John D. 
Ford, United States Navy, retired. 

The drafting rooms are well equipped for practical work, being 
well-lighted and of ample size.

THE MILITARY DEPARTMENT. 

CAPTAIN EDGAR T. CONLEY, FIFTEENTH INFANTRY, U. S. A., PROFESSOR. 

This department is under the direction of a regular army officer 
detailed by the War Department, and is in a decidedly flourishing 
condition. 

The military element enters largely into the general discipline 
of the College, and is an important factor in the moral and 
physical development of the student body. The importance of 
regular daily exercise for boys during the formative period, can- 
not be over estimated, and nothing else conduces so perfectly to 
effect this as military drill under competent instructors. 

The military drill produces an erect and graceful carriage, and 
a manly and self-respecting bearing towards others, while the 
military discipline inculcates habits of regularity, neatness of 
person and quarters, promptness and self-control. 

OBJECT OF MILITARY INSTRUCTION. 

In return for certain money given the institution by the United 
States Government, the College authorities agree that all cadets 
shall receive such military training as may be given them by the 
representative of the Government, the Professor of Military 
Science and Tactics. 

The object of this training is to perfect the military education 
of each graduate to such extent as will make him capable of per- 
forming the ditties of an officer of the Regular Army, United 
States Volunteers or Militia, especially in time of war. 

The regular army of the United States is so small that the 



74 

Government realizes the necessity of having a body of citizens 
whose military education fits them for positions as officers in 
time of war, and it is with the idea of forming such a reserve of 
officers, that the Government is doing so much to improve the 
military departments of all military institutions of the United 
States. 

ORGANIZATION. 

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

All students, unless physically disabled, are required to drill,, 
and upon entering are enrolled in one of the companies of the 
battalion. 

INSTRUCTION. 

The instruction in this Department is both practical and theo- 
retical. The practical instruction includes the School of the 
Soldier, Squad, Company and Battalion in Close and Extended 
Order, Ceremonies of Guard-Mounting, Review and Inspection, 
Dress Parade, Escort to the Color, Advance and Rear Guard 
work. Patrolling and Scouting, Marches, Target Practice, Visual 
Signalling and Military Engineering. 

The theoretical instruction is given to all members of the 
Senior Class and consists of instruction in Infantry Drill Regu- 
lations, Manual of Guard Duty, Firing Regulations for Small 
Arms, Field Service Regulations, First Aid to the Injured, etc., 
supplemented by lectures on tactical subjects. Army Regulations^ 
Company Books and Papers, Messing, Cooking and Tactics. 

EQUIPMENT. 

The battalion of cadets is equipped with the United States 
magazine rifle, 30 caliber, known as the Krag-Jorgensen, with 
side arms and cartridge boxes. The cadet officers and non-com- 
missioned staff officers are equipped with the regulation West 
Point cadet sword and sash. 



75 

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

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 
selected with reference primarily to their fitness for the duties 
they will be required to perform. Their general deportment, and 
proficiency in academic work is also given weight in making such 
selection. 

Commissioned officers are selected from the Senior Class, 
sergeants from the Junior Class, and corporals from the Sopho- 
more Class. 

Senior officers are required to serve for the year, performing 
all duties imposed by the regulations of the College, as part of 
their regular course of training. Failure to perform such duties 
shall constitute a deficiency, causing forfeiture of both diploma 
and commission. 

Recommendation for promotion will be based upon the stand- 
ing of a cadet at the end of the year, and the possibility of his 
being able to work off conditions during the summer will not be 
considered. 

DISCIPLINE. 

The discipline of the institution is under the charge of the 
Commandant of Cadets at all times. 

All rules and orders relating to the organization and govern- 
ment of the Corps of Cadets, the appointments, promotions, and 
changes of officers and all other orders affecting the Military 
Department are made and promulgated by the Commandant of 
Cadets, after having been approved by the President. 

Trivial breaches of regulations, absences from classes and 
formations are punished by awarding demerits, confinement to 
quarters, walking extra punishment tours, etc . 



76 

For aggravated offences the punishment may be arrests, with- 
drawal of privileges, suspension or expulsion, at the discretion of 
the Faculty and the President. 

Demerits will be awarded for every unremoved report, the 
number depending upon the nature and degree of the offence. 

For each month during which a cadet's conduct is perfect he 
will be given five (5) credits, which will cancel any five (5) 
demerits he may have standing against him. 

Any cadet who shall accumulate more than an average of one 
demerit per day for any calendar month, shall be deprived of all 
privileges to leave the College grounds for the following period 
of 30 days. 

Any cadet who shall accumulate more than an average of one 
demerit per day for any term, shall be suspended for the follow- 
ing term. - - 

Any cadet, who, having been once suspended, returns and 
again, in any one term, accumulates more than an average of one 
demerit per day, shall be dismissed. 

Smoking by any cadet of the Sophomore, Freshman, Sub- 
Freshman or Preparatory Classes is strictly prohibited. 

Any cadet who shall drink any spirituous or intoxicating 
liquor, or cause the same to be brought within cadet limits, or 
have the same in his possession, is subject to immediate expul- 
sion from the College. 

Every applicant for admission, before he is allowed to matricu- 
late is required to give a special pledge to refrain from what is 
popularly known as "hazing." Parents should impress upon 
their sons that failure to live up to this pledge is a dishonor 
which unfits them to be students of this College. "Hazing" is 
punished by instant dismissal. 

UNIFORM. 

By special contract the very best uniform and military equip- 
ment is furnished at a very low price. The uniform worn by all 
members of the battalion of cadets is of the pattern worn at the 
United States Military Academy at West Point, and made of 



77 

the best Charlottesville gray cloth. The uniform consists of 
gray fatigue coat, trousers and cap, white web waist belt, and 
white web cross belt for all military formations. The cost of 
this uniform last year was : 

Fatigue coat $8.10 

Fatigue trousers , 5.55 

Fatigue cap 1.65 

Total for gray uniform $16.30 

White waist belts with West Point plate $ .50 

White web cross belts 25 

Measures for these uniforms are taken as soon as the student 
arrives at College, and fit is guaranteed- 

Deposits should be made with the Treasurer when the measure 
is taken as no uniforms will be ordered until this is done. No 
uniform is paid for until it is approved by the Commandant of 
Cadets. 

In summer the field service uniform is worn, consisting of blue 
chambray shirt, gray trousers, puttee leggins, regulation cam- 
paign hat, black waist belt, and black tie. 

The price of the summer outfit is as follows : 

4 chambray shirts at 45 cents $1.80 

1 campaign hat 95 

1 pair puttee leggins 85 

1 black leather belt 20 

1 black four-in-hand tie 20 

2 pairs white duck trousers at $1.25 2.50 



Total for summer uniform $6.50 

Deposits for the summer uniforms must be made immediately 
after the first of January. 



78 

Members of the battalion must wear the prescribed uniform at 
all times, except when on leave of absence, and at such times 
when other dress is permitted. 

The gray military overcoat with cape is optional, but it is 
advised that it be purchased. It is of the same quality of cloth 
as the uniform and will last for years- The cost of this overcoat 
is $19.75. 

White gloves and collars can be purchased at the store near 
the College. 

CADET BAND. 

One of the popular features of the battalion is the Cadet Band. 
Students of musical ability, or those who wish to learn to play 
some instrument, will be taken into the band and receive instruc- 
tion under an experienced and competent band leader. 

Members of the band are excused from certain military duties, 
but in other respects are subject to the usual military regulations. 

Instruments and music are furnished by the College. Band 
practice is held each day at the regular drill period, and absence 
from practice without excuse, is equivalent to absence from any 
class. 

The band furnishes music for all military ceremonies, such as 
Guard-Mounting, Dress Parade, Review and Inspection, and 
Butt's Drill. 

There is also a string orchestra composed of members of the 
band which furnishes music for social functions, Y. M. C. A. 
meetings, etc.

DEPARTMENT OF ORATORY. 

CHARLES S. RICHARDSON, PROEESSOR. 

The object of this Department is to give a thorough training 
in public speaking. The work is begun with easy lessons in 
elocution, 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, covering a wide range of subjects, in this 
way not only securing practice in delivery, but also developing 
the power of logical thought.

DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICAL CULTURE. 

CHARLES S. RICHARDSON, DIRECTOR. 

The physical culture of the students is provided for by a regu- 
lar course of instruction in the Gymnasium. The course is care- 
fully planned, so as to develop gradually and scientifically the 
physical powers of each student. One of the most valuable feat- 
ures of this department is a complete anthropometry outfit, by 
means of which measurements and strength tests of students are 
taken at the beginning and also at the end of each scholastic 



81 

V 

year. By means of these measurements and tests the exact 
physical condition of each individual student can be ascertained, 
and such special exercises given as will produce a symmetrical 
development of the body. While desiring to make the work in 
the Gymnasium of practical value to all the students, the required 
work only extends through the Preparatory and Sub-Freshman 
Years. 

COURSES OFFERED. 

330. Gymnasium Work. Scientific body building, with light 
gymnastics. 

Preparatory Year — 3 practical periods per week. 

331. Hygiene. The care of the person in its relation to 
physical well-being.

332. Gymnasium Work. Scientific body building, with 
heavier gymnastic work. 

Sub-Freshman Year — 2 practical periods per week. 



PREPARATORY DEPARTMENT. 

henry T. HARRISON, PROFESSOR IN CHARGE. 
CHARLES S. RICHARDSON, ASSOCIATE. 

This Department was established in 1892, and reorganized in 
1908 ; and is designed to meet the requirements of those students 
who have not had the advantages of a thorough grammar and 
high school training, with a view to equipping them to enter the 
regular collegiate department. 

Only such students are desired as will be able to enter the 
Freshman Class within two years, and who are fifteen years of 
age. This course is recommended especially to students who have 
not been to school for several years; for their progress in the 



82 



regular collegiate 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 military regulations as other students. 
For outline of courses see page 108. 



VETERINARY DEPARTMENT. 

SAMUEL S. BUCKLEY, PROEESSOR, 

This Department offers instruction in the elements of the vet- 
erinary art. The course embraces the study of the external form 
as well as the internal structure and functions of the domesti- 
cated animals. It is intended to supplement animal husbandry 
instruction, and does not have for its object the training of stu- 
dents for veterinary practice. The preservation in health of ani- 
mals 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. 

The accompanying brief descriptions indicate the scope of the 
courses offered : — 

340. Sanitation. Public discussion has emphasized a neces- 
sity for better practices in the production and care of animal 
products used for human food. The study of sanitation, there- 
fore, is of considerable importance to students who may elect 
courses of study bearing upon animal production and dairying. 
Inasmuch as sanitary laws are applicable to the individual and 
the home, as well as to animals and their stables, it is desirable 
that all students receive some instruction in this subject. I- is 
given, therefore, early in the course before specialization of sub- 
jects is made. 

Sub-Freshman Year — Second Term, 2 practical periods per 
week. 



SIB 

341. Farm Buildings. This course has for its object the de- 
velopment of proper ideas in the construction and arrangement 
of buildings for the housing of stock; the storage of food ma- 
terials, animal and dairy products; and incidentally the storage 
of harness and implements. Convenience, economy and proper 
sanitation are especially considered in the study of plans and lo- 
cation. The course is made as practical as possible by the study 
of plans, specifications and photographs of existing structures, 
and by drawing simple plans to express individual ideas. 

Sophomore Year — Second Term, 8 theoretical and 4 practical 
periods per week. 

First Year — Second Term, 1 theoretical and 4 practical periods 
per week. 

1910-11. Sophomore Year — Second Term, 1 theoretical and 4 
practical periods per week. 

342. Anatomy and Physiology. This course embraces a 
general consideration of the structure and functions of the animal 
body, with especial reference to animal production and dairying. 

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

343. Bacteriology. A practical study of bacteria, including 
their microscopic examination, cultivation and sterilization, is 
made. The intimate relation which this subject bears to fertili- 
zation, dairying and plant and animal diseases makes it impor- 
tant in the list of agricultural subjects. 

Junior Year — Second Term, 2 theoretical and 4 practical 
periods per week. 

1910-11. Junior Year — Second Term, 6 practical periods per 
week. . 

344. Bacteriology. This course completes course 343 begun 
in the Junior Year. 

Senior Year — Second Term, 8 practical periods per week. 

345. Bacteriology. A brief course in dairy bacteriology is 
offered the students attending the two-year Courses in Agricul- 
ture and Horticulture. 

Secoiid Year — Second Term, 2 practical periods per week. 



84 



346. Animal Diseases. A study is made of the diseases of 
the domesticated animals with emphasis upon sanitation, practi- 
cal bacteriology, nursing, administration of medicine and use 
of common medicinal substances. The aim of this course is to 
enable the student to perceive the early appearance of diseases 
and intelligently care for them under proper veterinary super- 
vision. 

Senior Year — Second Term, 5 theoretical and 6 practical 
periods per week- 

1910-11. Senior Year — Second Term, 4 theoretical and 6 prac- 
tical periods per week. 

347. Animal Diseases. A briefer course in animal diseases 
is offered to the students in the two-year Agricultural and Horti- 
cultural Courses. 

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



THE COLLEGE LIBRARY. 

E. B. BOMBERGER, LIBRARIAN. 

The College Library may be properly regarded as one of the 
departments of the institution, as its aid for purposes of refer- 
ence and its influence upon the mental development of the stu- 
dents 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 read- 
ing room is well arranged and lighted, and is in all respects com- 
fortable and convenient. 

While the Library is not large, the collection of works has 
been carefully chosen, and the shelves contain a fair supply of 
work of reference, history, biography, essays, poetry and the 
standard works of fiction. Several thousand volumes of bound 
United States Government Reports comprise an important addi- 
tion to the refference works of the Library. Most of the leading 



85 

magazines and a number of newspapers are subscribed for; tech- 
nical periodicals and works of reference relating to specific 
branches are deposited in the libraries of the various depart- 
ments. 

The works in the Library are classified according to the 
modern Dewey 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 of the United States Agricultural Department, the 
Geological Survey, the Fish Commission, the Smithsonian Insti- 
tution, 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 com- 
pleted sets of the Consular Reports, Special Consular Reports, 
the Engineers' Reports of the United States Army, the War of 
the Rebellion Records and Messages and Documents, besides 
many other miscellaneous publications 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 acknowledgement is made to the officers of all the 
departments and bureaus above noted for their publications, and 
especially to the United States Superintendent of Documents, 
through whose aid many public documents have been received. 
Thanks are 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. Especial thanks are due the 
county press for their liberality in sending their publications free 
to the Library. 



86 



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 indi- 
vidual students, nine distinct courses of study have been pre- 
pared, one of which the student is expected to choose upon 
entering the regfular College work. 

These courses are Agronomy, Animal Husbandry, Horticul- 
ture, Biology, Chemistry, General, Civil Engineering, Electrical 
Engineering and Mechanical Engineering. 

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 satisfactory. A broad and liberal foundation in English, 
Mathematics and History is laid in the Freshman and Sopho- 
more Years, and then the particular line of study desired is 
emphasized more and more until the end of the course. 

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



AGRICULTURAL COURSES. 

Four- Year Course in Agricui^ture. 

The four-year Agricultural Course is designed to fit the student 
for conducting practical operations on the farm, or, should taste 
or circumstances so direct, to successfully prosecute advanced 
scientific research along the lines of agronomy or animal hus- 
bandry. With this end in view, the course has been made at 
once comprehensive and technical, comprehensive enough to in- 
clude whatever is necessary 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. 



87 

This Course is the result of development. While a man must 
specialize to attain any eminent success, yet in agricultural 
science it is not possible to specialize to the same degree as in 
some others, because it is itself made up of many sciences. 
Experience has clearly shown also that in agriculture the prac- 
tical must keep even pace with the theoretical, and that true educa- 
tion trains the eye and hand as well as the intellect, and should 
give to the student the ability not only to acquire and originate 
ideas, but also to express them in words and deeds. 

In the Junior Year the Course is divided into two sections, 
known as the Division of Agronomy and the Division of Animal 
Husbandry. This arrangement enables the student to specialize 
along whichever line accords with his interests or desires, while 
at the same time he is taught the fundamental facts of both. 
This enables him to see more clearly, and to harmonize his work, 
to, the relations which must exist between these great branches 
of agriculture. 

TWO-YEAR COURSE IN AGRICULTURE. 

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 possible amount of instruction and assistance which is. 
particularly applicable to the farm. The farm can no longer be 
run in the old-time haphazard way. 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. Brains must be 
planted with each little seed, and again 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 provided. 

It embraces much of the technical work of the four-year 
Course, and is especially designed to lay a foundation that will

secure success in practical farming, which, as it must be con- 
ducted today, is a union of many interests. To enter this Course 
a working knowledge of arithmetic, including fractions, mensu- 
ration and percentage, and a common-school training in English, 
is required. 

Upon completion of this Course a certificate is granted, taking 
the place of the diploma for the four-year Course. See outline of 
Course on page 109. 

SPEICIAI, WINTER COURSE IN AGRICULTURE. 

A ten-week Course designed for those who are unable to take 
one of the longer courses, and including the largest amount of 
purely practical information about farming in all its phases. 
This Course is invaluable to the young man desiring that infor- 
mation on agricultural topics so necessary to meet the sharp 
competition of the present day. The College authorities have 
removed the nominal charge of $5.00. They are anxious to have 
the young men of Maryland who intend to remain on the farm 
embrace this opportunity. Many cannot afford a four-year 
course and this solves the problem or them. . ■ 

Each student will be required to take not less than two hun- 
dred and fifty hours of work. Two hundred of these must be 
devoted to the following specified studies : 

Soils, 22 hours. Agricultural Chemistry, 20 hours. 

Farm Dairying, 20 hours. Farm Live Stock, 30 hours. 

Manures, 20 hours. Stock Feeding, 15 hours. 

Plant Production, 25 hours. Horticulture, 40 hours. 

The other fifty hours will be devoted to such to^cs as the 
student may elect from the following: Veterinary Science, 40 
hours; Tobacco Culture, 5 hours; Plant Physiology and Path- 
ology, 15 hours; Economic Entomology, 20 hours; Carpentering 
and Blacksmithing, 45 hours ; Farm Accounts, 12 hours ; Road 
Construction and Leveling, 5 hours ; Civil Government, 10 hours. 

Tuition free. No expense for use of laboratories or sup- 
plies. Good board at moderate rates can be secured in the 



91 

neighboring villages of Berwyn, Lakeland, Riverdale and Hyatts- 
ville — all within a short distance of the College and Experiment 
Station. Electric cars make frequent connections. A limited 
number can be accommodated at the College at $40.00 for the 
Course. Students will be expected to furnish their own bed 
clothes, pillows, towels, napkins and overalls for dairy work. 
Short Course students are not required to drill or wear uniforms. 



HORTICULTURAL COURSES. 

FOUR-YEAR COURSE IN H0RTICUI,TURE. 

The Horticultural Course is designed to give practical and 
scientific instruction in the great productive occupation of hor- 
ticulture. Practical work in orchard, garden and greenhouse is 
made a prominent feature of the Course, especially in its early 
part, which is designed to train young men in all the details of 
general fruit and truck growing. In this work the orchards, 
nursery and vineyard of the College and Experiment Station, 
which contain a great many varieties of all hardy commercial 
fruits, are used for practice and demonstration. 

In the Freshman and Sophomore Years the work is not ma- 
terially different from that of the Agricultural and Biological 
Courses, but in the Junior and Senior Years the subjects of the 
Course become grouped and specialized, and include a thesis 
upon some horticultural topic. 

The advanced work in horticulture is built on the practical 
work before outlined, but tends to the scientific side, and the 
training of men for scholastic and experimental work in colleges, 
experiment stations and the Department of Agriculture. Ex- 
cursions are made by the students to floral establishftients in 
Baltimore and Washington to note and study the commercial 
aspects of floriculture. Models in landscape architecture and 
treatment are furnished by the parks and government grounds 
in and about the national capital. The State Horticultural So- 
ciety, by its meetings and exhibitions, affords the horticultural 
students of the College excellent training in the work of identi- 
fying, noting and judging fruit and vegetables.

TWO-YEAR COURSE IN HORTICUWURE. 

The two-year Course in Horticulture is intended for young 
men who wish to devote themselves to fruit and vegetable grow- 
ing, or to commercial nursery or flower business, and who can- 
not afford the time required for a regular college course. 

The Course includes practically all of the subjects given in the 
Department of Horticulture and those of the courses in agri- 
culture that are of importance for the study of general horticul- 
ture. Besides these, there is also a good training in English lan- 
guage, botany, entomology and chemistry. 

Upon finishing the Course the student gets a certificate which 
gives him credit for the work he has completed at the College. 

For outline of Course see page 109. 



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 
zoology. 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. 

There are many opportunities for scientific workers in connec- 
tion with the agricultural investigations of the Federal Govern- 
ment 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 difficult 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 neglecting the cultural studies which 
are a necessary foundation for every specialist. Upon comple- 
tion of the four year's work the degree of Bachelor of Science is 
conferred.

CHEMICAL COURSE. 

The Course in Chemistry is essentially the same as the other 
science courses until the beginning of the Junior Year, though 
any of the four-year courses would prepare for this, as the 
amount of chemistry is the same in all courses to the end of the 
Sophomore Year, and the demands on the agricultural or tech- 



95 



nical chemist are now so varied that a foundation with more of 
the essentials of the agricultural or the mechanical courses is 
often desirable. 

Beginning with the Junior Year the major part of the student's 
time is devoted to chemistry, the practical work in the laboratory- 
occupying approximately half of his time. The Course is essen- 
tially a course in agricultural chemistry, fitting the graduate for 
positions in agricultural colleges, experiment stations, or the 
United States Department of Agriculture.

GENERAL COURSE. 



The General 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, avbH find in the curriculum of this 
Course a highly satisfactory preparation for such work. While 
emphasis has been placed upon the cultural subjects, such as 
English, Language, Lriterature, History, Mathematics, etc., the 
natural sciences occupy a prominent place in the Course and the 
range of electives beginning in the Junior Year 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.

cal engineering work in the field or in the drafting room with the 
assurance that he has the necessary preparation to profit by the 
experience thus afforded; or that will entitle him to advanced 
standing, if he desires to pursue a more extended course at a 
technical school of a higher grade. The curriculum, which is out- 
lined for 1910-11 on this page, includes not only studies having 
culture value, but the sciences which form the basis of engineer- 



98 



ing. Students who have found themselves deficient in ability to 
learn mathematics are not advised to enter an engineering course. 
Upon the satisfactory completion of this Course the degree of 
Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, is conferred. 

A thesis dealing with some problem in engineering will be 
required of all applicants for the degree of Bachelor of Science in 
Civil Engineering. 

All engineering students in the Junior and Senior Classes are 
required to spend a portion of their time in the reading of the 
current engineering magazines.

The course for the Senior Year will 
be outlined as required. 



99 

for young men who are not only well trained in the practical 
construction 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 will be to make the student 
thoroughly acquainted with the scientific laws which are the 
basis of the profession, and at the same time to train him to adapt 
the laws to practice, to use his own judgment, and to apply 
honest and accurate methods in all his work. 

The curriculum, as outlined, includes those studies which pro- 
vide a broad general culture, as well as a good foundation for the 
engfineering work which follows. From the beginning of the 
Second Term of the Sophomore Year the electrical training will 
extend continuously throughout the Course, 



MECHANICAL ENGINEERING COURSE. 

The work of the several years of this Course differs from the 
preceding courses, mainly in the omission of those subjects of a 
biological and agricultural character and inclusion of mathemat- 
ics and shopwork. The shopwork supplements the mathe- 
matics, especially in the last two years, when problems in 
machine design are worked out and, so far as time allows, the 
parts designed are actually constructed. The practical work of 
this Course is most thorough. The student is familiarized from 
the first with the use of tools and implements used in wood and 
iron work. He is given daily practice in the shops and is encour- 
aged to develop whatever inventive talent he may have. Re- 
sults have shown that students completing this Course have no 
difficulty in securing employment immediately upon graduation 
in the field of mechanics or mechanical engineering.

GENERAL INFORMATION. 
REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION. 

For admission to classes other than the Freshman, an exami- 
nation is required. This examination is not a memory test, but 
is rather a series of questions offered with a view of ascertaining 
the applicant's general knowledge of the principles involved. 
Examinations for 1910-11 will be held at the College on Tuesday, 
September 13th, and Wednesday, September 14th. Morning 
sessions will begin at 9:30; afternoon sessions, at 1:00 o'clock. 
To candidates for admission to the Freshman Class who have not 
a diploma from an approved institution, examinations will be 
offered in English grammar, composition and analysis. United 
States history, arithmetic complete, algebra complete, and plane 
geometry. 

Examinations for the Sub-Freshman Class will be less rigid 
in English and history, with algebra required up to quadratics 
and arithmetic complete. 

For entrance to the Preparatory Class, the requirements are: 
Elementary English grammar, arithmetic as far as percentage, 
a general knowledge of the facts of United States history and 
geography. 

Applicants who desire assignment to classes more advanced 
than the Freshman must be prepared to take an examination 
equivalent to that given at the College for promotion to the class 
they desire to enter. Experience has proved that it is almost 
impossible for a new student to succeed in the work of the Me- 
chanical Course as a Sophomore; and such assignment will be 
made only upon the candidate presenting satisfactory evidence 
of proficiency in drawing and wood work. 

Every applicant for admission to the College must bring satis- 
factory testimonials as to his character and scholarship from his 
former teacher. This will be absolutely insisted upon. No stu- 
dent need apply for entrance who cannot furnish such credentials. 



Ill 

Students from newly acquired territory or any foreign country 
must have a guardian appointed with parental powers, with 
whom the President can deal in any case of emergency. Students 
who cannot speak English are undesirable, and are advised that 
satisfactory progress at this College on their part cannot be ex- 
pected 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. 

For rules for military promotions see Military Department. 

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 
with comment by the President upon each item. 

In addition to this, monthly reports are issued for October, 
November, January, February and April. These give general 
information as to scholarship, conduct, attendance and health, 
and call attention to deficiency in any one of these particulars.

. SCHOLARSHIPS. 

COMPETITIVE SCHOLARSHIPS. 

The College offers a number of scholarships— one for each 
sectional district of the State. These scholarships are awarded 
to the successful candidate in competitive examinations, con- 
ducted in Baltimore City by the Superintendent of Public In- 
struction, and in the counties by the County School Superin- 
tendent. All scholarship students must be prepared for entrance 
to the Freshman Class, and are required to take the regular 



115 

entrance examination. Each scholarship is good for four years, 
or for such part thereof as the holder remains at the College. It 
is then again open for competition. The cost per year for 
scholarship students will be found under the head of "Student 
Expenses." The following is an extract from the requirements 
of the Board of Trustees, relating to scholarships : 

"Persons holding certificates of scholarship must present them- 
selves at the College, or other designated place, at the date which 
may be named in the September or January next following the 
award, and be examined by College authorities for entrance to 
the Freshman Class. Alternates are to be thus examined, as 
well as principals, and in case of a failure of the principal to 
secure or hold the scholarship, the alternate will have the first 
right to the place declared vacant, if within a year from date of 
the certificate of award. 

"Persons holding certificates of scholarship must, in order to 
secure the same, pass the entrance examination of the College, 
and (if entering in January) such other examination as may be 
required to join the Freshman Class. To hold a scholarship, the 
student must make all payments promptly, and meet such re- 
quirements of the College as to scholarship and deportment as 
may be prescribed by the President and Faculty. By passing 
special examination, or by presenting satisfactory certificates, 
candidates for scholarship may be permitted to enter the Sopho- 
more Class." A student who fails of promotion, thereby for- 
feits his scholarship and the School Board which granted such 
scholarship will be notified accordingly. 

INDUSTRIAL SCHOLARSHIPS. 

There are also offered by the College a limited number of 
"Industrial Scholarships." The holder of such a scholarship is 
required to work as a waiter or janitor a definite number of hours 
alternate days ; these hours are so arranged as to conflict as little 
as possible with his time for study or recitation. 

In consideration of their work a rebate of $140 a year is 
granted each of these students. 



116 

A selection is made from applicants for these scholarships on 
the basis of mental preparation, physical ability and moral char- 
acter. Preference will be given to the sons of citizens of Mary- 
land. Applications for this scholarship specifying age, weight, 
mental advancement and enclosing testimonial of moral character 
must be made in writing to the President of the College prior 
to September 1st, and the successful applicants for this scholar- 
ship will be notified to report in person at the College in Sep- 
tember. 



STUDENT OPPORTUNITIES. 

A limited amount of money can be earned by students by 
taking advantage of the opportunities arising from time to time 
to do clerical work, tutoring and such other labor as may not 
interfere with regular scholastic duties- Those in need of help 
to continue their work, and whose course is marked by an earnest 
desire to succeed, are always given the preference. 

FACILITIES FOR RELIGIOUS WORSHIP. 

The College is undenominational in character. The daily exer- 
cises of the College are opened with 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 denominations, and leave is granted to students to attend 
service in this city on Sunday mornings. 



117 

COLLEGE REGULATIONS. 

The attention of parents is earnestly called to the following 
rules in force at this College: The College authorities can suc- 
ceed in conferring the rtiaximum amount of training upon the 
student only with and by the active support and earnest co-opera- 
tion of the parent. The President of the College is always ready 
and willing to discuss any failures in a student's record with his 
parent or guardian, and correspondence on this subject is always 
welcome. 

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 College: 

"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 
to ^his 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 institu- 
tion 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 cadet manifesting an 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 in these particulars. Failing to do so his parents, i:pon 
notice given by the President, must withdraw their son. 

A special pledge to refrain from what is popularly known as 
"hazing," and taking unfair means in examinations is required 
of every applicant for entrance, before he will be allowed to 
matriculate. Parents should impress upon their sons that failure 
to live up to this pledge is a dishonor which unfits them to be 
longer students of the College. "Hazing" is invariably punished 
by instant dismissal. 

Frequent absences from the College are invariably of gjreat dis- 
advantage to the student, in breaking in upon the continuity of 
his work and in distracting his mind from the main purpose of 



118 . 

his attendance at the institution. Parents are therefore earnestly 
asked to refrain from granting frequent requests to leave the 
College. 

Students will not be permitted to leave classes or quarters dur- 
ing study hours 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 sale of second hand furniture or clothing to new cadets is 
prohibited unless the sale be approved by the Commandant of 
Cadets. 

The College will not be responsible for articles left in the bar- 
racks 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 
receipt therefor. 

RULES OF COMMITTEE ON COIvLEGIATE ROUTINE, ENDORSED BY THE 

FACULTY. 

1. A student may not change his course of study unless at the writ- 
ten request of his parent or gfuardian, and after said request has been en- 
dorsed by the dean of the course abandoned, and the dean of the course 
requested, and approved by this committee, 

2. Examinations to make up conditions acquired in any term will be 
given 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 each 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 re- 
quested at any other time, a charge of $i.oo will be made for each sub- 
ject on which the applicant is examined, provided that all such special 
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-examination a grade of 70 per cent, is required. 

4. A credit period is one hour 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 any one de- 
partment. 

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

7. No student may be promoted from the Preparatory Department with 
any condition. 



119 

8. Any student who uses unfair means in examination will (i) re- 
ceive no further examination in same subject; (2) receive zero for exami- 
nation grade; (3) receive no commission; (4) receive no diploma. 

9. A student is subject to an oral examination at any time within ten 
days after written examination. 

10. An examination paper, containing erasure or showing alterations, 
may be rejected at the discretion of the Professor in charge, and a new 
examination ordered by this committee. 

11. In computing term averages the daily grade is computed at 2, and 
the examination grade at i. 

12. The yearly averages in all studies is computed by giving each sub- 
ject a weight according to the mean number of hours per week in- 
volved; theoretical periods being given a value of 2, practical periods i. 

13. Senior students must submit subjects for graduating theses prior 
to February i, and all theses for graduation must be completed prior to 
May 15. 

14. No special courses are permitted save by consent of this commit- 
tee. In case consent is granted for a special course, the certificate 
awarded attesting work will not have the College seal nor the Gov- 
ernor's signature. 

15. No student may take work in more than one class during any one 
term.

accepfeance of this regulation. 

UNIFORM. 

The uniform is the same as worn at the United States Military 
Academy at West Point. Made of best Charlotteville gray 
cloth, and by a special contract with one of the best Military 
Equipment Houses in the United States, This uniform is fur- 
nished at a very low price. 

The gray uniform consists of gray fatigue blouse, gray fatigue 
trousers and gray fatigue cap. With white web waist belt, with 
West Point belt plate, and white web cross belt, for all military 
formations. The cost of this uniform last year was: 

Fatigue coat $8.10

advised that it be purchased. It is of the same quality cloth as 
the uniform and will last for years. 

White gloves, collars, etc., can be purchased at the store near 
the College. 

ARTICLES NECESSARY TO BE PROVIDED. 

All students are required to provide themselves with the fol- 
lowing articles, to be brought from home or purchased from the 
College Park store on arrival : 

1 dozen white standing collars. • • 

6 pairs white gloves (uniform). 

6 pairs white cuffs.

best be purchased after the student arrives at the College. The 



123 

cost of the entire list should not be more than $15.00 for the year. 
This should be paid to the Treasurer on entrance, as the College 
has no fund from which it can make advances, and failure to 
comply with this requirement will subject the student to much 
inconvenience. Any unexpended balance will be returned 
promptly. 



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 discipline and tends to raise the standard of stu- 
dent honor. 

YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. 

President, O. H. Saunders. 
Vice-President, R. C. Drach. 
Secretary, F. J. Maxwell. 
Treasurer, W. G. Cole. 

Much encouraging work has been done by this organization 
during the past year, and much interest has been shown in the 
meetings. 

LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

These societies are invaluable adjuncts to college work- 
Through them a good knowledge of parliamentary law is gained, 
as well as a readiness 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 Oratory, 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.

STUDENT ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION. 

Membership in the Athletic Association is open to all students 
free of charge. 

The object of the association is to foster athletic spirit, prevent 
indiscretion in athletic matters and co-operative with the Ath- 
letic Council in general management of all athletic affairs. 

OFFICERS. 

President, J. P. Grason. 
Vice-President, W. J. Frere, Jr. 
Secretary, G. E. Hamilton. 
Treasurer, H. H. Allen. 

ATHLETIC COUNCIL. 

The Athletic Council, in conjunction with the Student Athletic 
Association, manages all athletic affairs. It consists of three 
members of the Faculty, appointed by the President, and five 
students, namely, the managers of the foot-ball, base-ball, track 
and tennis teams, and the President of the Athletic Association. 

THE ORATORICAL ASSOCIATION OF MARYLAND COLLEGES. 

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



127 

THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION. 

The Alumni Association is steadily growing in two ways; 
that is to say, recent graduates almost invariably become active 
members, and the graduates of the earlier days of the College 
are becoming more active and more interested in all that pertains 
to the welfare of their Alma Mater. 

The Association has continued the offer of medals for worthy 
students in the several collegiate departments, and there is no 
doubt regarding; the wisdom of stimulating in this way the ener- 
gies of the students. The enrollment of the Alumni Association 
is now reaching a point where some definite accomplishment can 
be effected, and each individual should be ready to suggest a de- 
sirable project, and, at the same time, to assist in the execution of 
that object which is most feasible and popular with the Association 
at large. 

The entire institution as viewed from the Alumni standpoint 
is worthy of the confidence of its patrons and the public. Each 
of us should feel that every step in advance of that achieved in 
our day, should give us a feeling of pride, that it is in a manner 
the result of the successful completion of the work then offered, 
and should bind us more closely to the work of the present and 
the broadening of its future. 

The advent of the Triangle, published by the students of the 
College and devoted to the interests of the College Students and 
Alumni, is looked upon as being a most progressive step. The 
Alumni page, through its editor, Mr. E. P. Walls, '03, has been 
most interesting and instructive. 

The officers for the year are: President, F. W. Besley, '92; 
Vice-President, A. S. Gill, '07; Secretary-Treasurer, T. B. 
Symons, '02 ; Executive Committee, members at large, J. Enos 
Ray, '92 ; S. H. Harding, '95. 

Graduates and members of the association are requested to 
keep the Secretary-Treasurer, T. B. Symons, College Park, Md., 
informed of any changes in their addresses. Any information 
concerning the older graduates which will enable the officers to 
locate and communicate with them will facilitate their efforts 
and will tend to further the success of the Association.
