MAEYIAIID AaRICULTURAI 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: 

Whereas^ 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 isi 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, entitle it to 

attain. 

11 



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 maintenance of 
at least one college in which the "leading object" should be, "with- 
out 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 sev- 
eral 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 insti- 
tution, 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 build- 
ings — the library and gymnasium building, the chemical labora- 
tory, Morrill Hall, the sanatarium, the administration building and 
barracks, and the engineering building; as well as by the establish- 
ment of the Department of Farmers' Institutes and the State De- 
partments of Horticulture, Entomology and Vegetable Pathology, 
and Chemistry (Fertilizer and Feed Control). As a consequence 
of its development under such favorable auspices the institution 
has become the most important factor in the agricultural and in- 
dustrial development of the State. 



12 



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

LOCATION AND DESCEIPTION. 

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. Access to these 
towns and to Washington may be had by steam and electric rail- 
way. The site of the College is particularly beautiful. The build- 
ings occupy the crest of a commanding hill, which is covered with 
forest trees, and overlooks 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 Experiment Station. The College farm con- 
tains about three hundred acres, and is devoted to fields, gardens, 
orchards, vineyard, poultry yards, etc., used for experimental pur- 
poses and demonstration work in agriculture and horticulture. 

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

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 many years. 

COLLEGE BUILDIIfGS. 

The original barracks, erected in 1859, is a five-story brick 
building, containing the student quarters and the Domestic De- 

13 



partment. The dormitories are large, well ventilated and pro- 
vided with fire escapes, bath and toilet 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 commodious. 

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 con- 
sists of a main building four stories in height and a wing three 
stories in height, is so arranged as to form with the buildings pre- 
viously erected, a concrete whole. In this group of buildings are 
found laboratories of various kinds, wood and machine shops, a 
forge room and foundry, drawing rooms, blue print rooms, instru- 
ment 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 thor- 
oughly equipped. It contains several lecture rooms and labora- 
tories for practical work and the analysis of fertilizers and feeding 
materials for domestic animals. This work is assigned by an Act 
of the General Assembly to the Professor of Chemistry at this 
College, who thereby becomes the State Chemist. 

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, Vege- 
table Pathology and Veterinary Science. A greenhouse for experi- 
mental work in entomology and vegetable pathology was erected 
in 1904. 

The College Sanitarium, completed in 1901, has proved a most 
efficieni 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 furnished 
with modern hospital facilities. An experienced nurse is in constant 
attendance, and the College surgeon is present ever>' day at a fixed 
hour to treat any cadet requiring his services. 

14 



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

Appreciating the value and needs of the institution, the State Leg- 
islature has from time to time appropriated funds wherewith build- 
ings 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 ventilation; 
etc.; all of which furnish quarters and classrooms with unusually 
good sanitary arrangements. 

GENERAL AIM AND PUBPOSE. 

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 neces- 
sary for a liberal education, for the development of the intelligent 
citizen and for general culture. The purpose of this college is to 
give young men anxious to prepare themselves for the active duties 
of life such training in the lecture room and laboratory as will 
enable them to take their places in the industrial world well pre- 
pared for the fierce competition 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 ordinary 
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 dis- 
bursement by the Government to those 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 

• 15 



the student in agriculture, engineering and science, 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 thorough training in the essen- 
tials. 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 College 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 para- 
graph. 

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 development 
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 con- 
tinues during his third, or Junior, year, until in his last, or Senior, 
year, his work consists chiefly of a few closely connected topics, in 
which he is thus able thoroughly to prepare himself. With the 
present equipment of the laboratories and work-shops a student is 
able to become so proficient in his chosen line of work that when 
he leaves the College a successful career is open to him if he chooses 
to avail himself of it. 

The Agricultural College is, logically, the crowning point of 
the public school system of Maryland. Its aim in particular is to 
provide a higher education for the graduates 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 edu- 
cation.

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 intelligence 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 farm- 
ing industry. The studies to be pursued are recognized as being 
those necessary to 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- 
ment Station. Students of the Agricultural Course are made ac- 
quainted with the work of the Station from time to time, and be- 
cause 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. 

DIVISION OF AGBONOMT. 

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, adaptation to soil and 
climate and methods of culture; soils, their properties, and how to 
care for them and make them more productive 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 and for 
cultivating and harvesting the crops. A new soils laboratory has 
been added to this Department. In this laboratory the student has 

i8 



an excellent opportunity 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 prin- 
ciples of good farm practice in the handling of soils and the profit- 
able 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." 

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

Sophomore and First Year — Third Term, 2 theoretical and 4 
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 func- 
tions cannot be too highly emphasized. The study of this import- 
ant subject is conducted by means of lectures, text-books, labora- 
tory 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. 

19 



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 in breeding 
work in corn and other fall maturing crops on the Experiment Sta- 
tion farm. 

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

1911-12. 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 fertilizing question. Between it 
and the profi,t 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.

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 

22 



domesticated animals. Good herds of stock are being established 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 Balti- 
more makes it possible for the student to get excellent material 
for study. The Heurich dairy farm, close by, furnishes an excel- 
lent 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 demonstrated 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. 

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. 

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

21. Breeds and Scoring. This course is devoted to the de- 
tailed study of the breeds of live stock. The practical work com- 
mences with a study of the animal form by the use of the score- 
card. Especial attention is given to the relation of form to func- 
tion. First, the productive types are firmly fixed in the student's 
mind; then he takes up more particularly breed characteristics. 
Judging occupies two double periods two afternoons per week. 

Text-books used: "Types and Breeds of Farm Animals," by 
Plumb, and "Judging Live Stock," by Craig.

DEPARTMENT OF BOTANY AND VEGETABLE PATHOLOGY. 

J. E. S. NORTON, PROFESSOR. 
J. B. DEMAREE, INSTRUCTOR. 
H. H. JEWETT, INSTRUCTOR. 

The courses in Botany are intended to give such knowledge of 
the vegetable kingdom as is a proper element in general culture; 
to train the student mind in observation, comparison, generaliza- 
tion and other mental processes essential to true scientific methods 

26 



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 professional farmer or 
gardener. 

The equipment and means for illustration and demonstration con- 
sist of a reference library containing the principal botanical works 
needed by students, charts and maps, compound and dissecting 
microscopes, preserved specimens for illustration and a representa- 
tive collection of Maryland plants; microtome and other instru- 
ments together with reagents and apparatus for histological work 
and physiological experiments ; and a culture room, sterilizers, incu- 
bators 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. 

COURSES OFFERED. 

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

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. 

27 



He is thus enabled to identify these at sight. A study of the com- 
mon weeds is also pursued. 

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

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,

sideration 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.

DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTEY. 

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

This Department is charged with two distinct classes of work, 
(i) The State fertiUzer and food inspection, and (2) the instruc- 
tion of students. The State work necessitates the pubHcation of 
the "Quarterly" bulletin, which is usually made up of the results 
of the analyses of fertilizers or feeding stufifs, 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 chem- 
istry. It is new and, not including basement, is two stories high. 
On the first floor are the laboratories for the State fertilizer and food 
control work, office, lecture room and balance room. On the second 
floor are three laboratories for the use of students — 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 base- 
ment. 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 addi- 
tions are made from time to time. 

Instruction in chemistry is begun with the Sophomore Year, three 
to four periods per week being devoted to lectures and recitations, 
and two to four periods 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. 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 com- 
position 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 essen- 
tial 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 practical chemistry 
during the rest of his course, as outlined elsewhere. 

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

ELECTBICAL EITGOEESIIVG. 

The work of the Electrical Engineering 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 practi- 
cal problems with which the engineer has to deal. This purpose 
is carried out by means of lectures and recitations in the class-room, 



39 



supplemented by practical work in the laboratories and drawing 
room. 

Equipment. The Electrical Engineering Laboratories are lo- 
cated in the basement and first floor of the east wing of the new en- 
gineering building. The rooms on the first floor are used for lec- 
tures, recitations and experimental demonstrations by the instruc- 
tor; and the basement contains the dynamo room and the electrical 
engineering testing room. 

The electrical engineering testing room is fitted up with such ap- 
pliances 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 student unfavorably. With 
poor instruments he cannot be taught to do satisfactory work and 
he becomes careless in the handling of them. 

Among other things the following apparatus has been purchased 
tor the testing laboratory: 

A Leeds and Northrup potentiometer including a volt box, stand- 
ard resistance, Weston standard cell, and wall type galvanometer 
with telescope and scale to be used for calibrating the various am- 
meters and voltmeters used in the laboratory. A Queen & Co. 
standard photometer, for measuring the distribution of light from 
incandescent lamps, with all the necessary instruments and adjust- 
ments, including a Lummer-Brodhun photometer screen and car- 
riage and a universal rotating socket for the test lamp. A number 
of portable direct current and alternating current voltmeters rang- 
ing from o.oooi to 500 volts ; ammeters ranging from 0.0004 to 
100 amperes. A Siemen's electro-dynamometer of 60 amperes ca- 
pacity; indicating and integrating wattmeters; and a commercial 
type condenser. The above instruments are made by the Weston 
Electrical Instrument Co., Queen & Co., and the General Electric Co. 
In addition there are D'Arsonval galvanometers, both ballistic and 
light movement, furnished with lamp and scale ; standard resistance 
boxes and bridges, including a very accurate decade resistance box 
and a decade resistance and Wheatstone Bridge; double and single 
contact keys, commutating keys, condenser keys, etc. 

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. 

40 



A General Electric Co. turbine, direct conected to a 35 kilowatt 
compound generator, has been installed for testing purposes in the 
Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Departments. This may be 
used in connection with the college lighting plant when needed. 

The laboratory is so wired that connection may be made readily 
with any part of the College lighting plant, with the turbo-generator 
or with any of the apparatus in the dynamo room. 

The dynamo room contains the following: — A 10 kilowatt 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 variable speed com- 
mutating pole motor. A 7.5 kilowatt, 60 cycle, 220 volt, alternating 
current generator designed to operate either as a polyphase alter- 
nating current generator, synchronous motor, frequency changer, 
constant speed induction motor, or variable speed induction motor; 
the following parts are supplied with the set to make possible its 
operation in any of the above named ways; — a stationary arma- 
ture for use either as an alternating current generator or as an in- 
duction motor field ; a revolving field ; a squirrel cage induction 
motor rotor with starting compensator having self contained 
switches ; an induction motor rotor with internal starting resistance ; 
?nd an induction motor rotor with 3 phase collector rings, external 
resistance, and controller. A 2 kilowatt booster set, consisting of a 
series motor and shunt generator with armatures mounted on the 
same shaft. A 2 kilowatt transformer to transform from no to 
1 100 or 2200 volts. All of the above apparatus was made by the 
General Electric Co. In addition there are a Westinghouse 5 horse- 
power direct current motor and a Crocker-Wheeler 1.5 horsepower 
fully enclosed shunt motor. 

A blue Vermont marble panel is used to mount the necessary 
circuit breaker, rheostats, switches, etc., to control the rotary con- 
verter as well as the various circuits in the dynamo room and test- 
ing 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 100 amperes cur- 
rent. In addition to the special electrical engineering equipment, the 
College lighting plant will be used for illustrative and experimental 
purposes. This plant contains, together with other apparatus useful 



41 



in teaching electrical engineering, two Bullock generators of 40 kil- 
owatts total capacity, and a switch-board equipped with a number 
of Weston ammeters, voltmeters and circuit breakers, and various 
types of rheostats. 

An 8-inch Waltham bench lathe, with all the necessary attach- 
ments, has been installed in the dynamo room for the use of stu- 
dents in practical thesis work, and for making small articles, such 
as binding posts, connectors, etc., for use in the laboratories. 

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 engineer- 
ing. 

120. Elementary Electricity. This subject includes: Static 
electricity, dealing with the phenomena of electricity in its poten- 
tial form, and the conception of electric potential, quantity, capacity, 
etc. ; kinetic electricity, including the study of the fundamental laws 
and units, as Ohm's Law, Joules' Law, units of current, electro- 
motive force, resistance, etc. ; theory of magnetism, with its phe- 
nomena and forces ; and electro-magnetism, which is the foundation

Sophomore Year — Second and Third Term, 3 theoretical per- 
iods per week. 

121. Electro-Magnetism and the Construction of Dyna- 
mos. Beginning with the Junior Year and extending throughout 
the course, the principles involved in the construction and operation 
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 log- 
ical. 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 arrang- 
ing the windings for different purposes; the shape and material of 

42 



the magnetic circuits; the bearings, shafts, and bed-plates; the 
methods of insulation ; a full description of the materials of construc- 
tion; the selection of types suited to the performance of specific 
duties; and the proper method for installing and operating. The 
characteristic curves and efficiencies 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. 

122. Alternating Currents and Alternating Current 
Machinery. A complete study is made of the fundamental phe- 
nomena and theories dealing with the effects of alternating cur- 
rents, 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 appreciation of 
the effects of self-inductance, mutual-inductance, and capacity in 
single-phase and poly-phase alternating current circuits. 

The theory, construction and practical applications of single- 
phase and poly-phase alternating current machinery, which includes 
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 de- 
signing room with special reference to their practical utilization.

123. Electric Lighting and Power Plants. This work be- 
gins 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 in- 

43 



struments which they contain, as well as the latest methods of pro- 
tection from lightning, are treated in detail. 

The student is made familiar with the manufacture and charac- 
teristics 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 distribution. 

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 distribution are given. 
These problems require for their solution a knowledge of the rules 
of the Underwriters' Association."

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 knowledge of 
his mother tongue is absolutely necessary to the student in pursu- 
ing 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 culture which has always been 
the distinguishing mark of the liberally educated man. The En- 
glish work, which is common to all courses, consists of the study of 
the structure of the English language, English and American lit- 
erature, theoretical and practical rhetoric, logic, psychology, critical 
reading and analysis, and constant exercise in expression, composi- 
tion and theme writing. 

The course in civics is especially designed to prepare young men

"!'■ T. B. SYMONS, PROFESSOR. 

E. N« CORY^ INSTRUCTOR. 
O. G. BABCOCK, INSTRUCTOR. 

Instruction is given in this Department with a view first, to giv- 
ing the student the general knowledge of invertebrate and verte- 
brate 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 systematic, so that he 
may pursue this specialty after graduation. A course in economic 
entomology and zoology is also given to provide 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 conducted through this 
Department, there are special advantages for students in applied 
entomology. 

The reference library is unusually complete, containing in addi- 
tion to the standard works, a majority of the principal entomologi- 
cal and zoological publications. The laboratory is supplied with a 
large collection of insects for the use of students, and is well equip- 

52 



ped with microscopes and other apparatus necessary for practical 
work in entomology and zoology.

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 practical 
and economic fruit growing, truck farming and commercial flori- 
culture. The orchards, gardens and new greenhouses of the Ex- 
periment 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 establishments 
of successful greenhouse men in Baltimore, Washington and vicin- 
ity. Similar trips to supplement the work in landscape gardening 
and truck and fruit growing, are made from time to time. These \ 

56 



trips are a portion of the regular work and are usually made on 
Saturday. The expenses are generally paid by the College.

DEPARTMENT OF LANGUAGES. 

THOMAS H. SPENCE, PROFESSOR. 

The Department of Languages embraces the study of three 
branches: Latin, German and French. 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 have 
completed the work outlined for the Sub-Freshman Class or its 
equivalent. 

60 



The course of study in Latin is given with two ends in view — 
first, to train the mind into accurate and close methods of reason- 
ing; second, to give the student a more thorough and comprehen- 
sive knowledge of his own language than he could otherwise ac- 
quire. 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 in- 
telligently 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 scien- 
tific 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 OFFERED. 

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.

DEFASTMENT OF MATTTRMATICS. 

R. W. SILVESTER, PROFESSOR. 

HENRY T. HARRISON, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. 

* " , INSTRUCTOR. 

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 consists of 
arithmetic, bookkeeping, algebra, geometry (plane and solid), trig- 
onometry, analytic geometry, differential and integral calculus, 
snd their application to mechanics, engineering, physics and sur- 
veying. 

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

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 smith's 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 lo-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 assortment 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 mem- 
bers of the Junior and Senior Mechanical Engineering Qasses, 
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 Baltimore, and se- 
cured through the efforts of Rear-Admiral John D. Ford, United 
Slates Navy, retired. 

The experimental laboratory contains: A hundred thousand 
pound Reihle combined hand and power testing machine for making 
tensile, compression, shearing and transverse tests on va- 



66 



rious kinds of material, turbo generator set, consisting of a Cur- 
tis steam turbine and thirty-five K. W. General Electric compound 
wound generator for making steam and electric efficiency tests. 
This set is connected with the general lighting system of the Col- 
lege so that any time it may be tested to its capacity. It may also 
be used for lighting purposes if necessary. A cross ccompound 
condensing Corliss engine of fifty horse power, equipped with 
brake, indicators, relief valves, reducing motion, steam and vacuum 
gauges, and speed indicator, gives ample opportunity for steam con- 
sumption and brake tests. This is connected with the shops, so 
that any time it may be switched on and drive them. The College 
power plant with its vacuum heating system, three one-hundred 
horse power return tubular boilers, and two electric generating 
units offer unexcelled opportunities for experimental work. 

The three drafting rooms are well equipped for practical work. 
Two of these are used by the Junior and Senior Classes, each stu- 
dent being provided with a separate desk. The third room is used 
jointly by the Freshman and Sophomore students and contains 
eleven drawing tables accommodating about sixty students. 

The combined blue print and dark room with its commodious 
printing frames affords splendid opportunities for sun printing, 
which is so useful to engineering students. 

Tours of Inspection. — The proximity of the College to Balti- 
more, Washington and Philadelphia with their great industrial en- 
terprises offers unexcelled opportunities to engineering students 
to acquaint themselves practically with what is being done in mod- 
ern engineering construction. 

During the past session, the Senior Mechanical Engineering 
Class has visited the Disston Saw Works, Philadelphia; Baldwin 
Locomotive Works, Philadelphia; University of Pennsylvania, 
Philadelphia ; Midvale Steel Plant, Nicetown, Pa. ; and the New 
York Ship Building Co., Camden, N. J. ; and the Junior Mechanical 
Engineering Class has visited the United States Navy Yard, Wash- 
ington; Potomac Electric Light Company, Washington; and the 
Terminal Power Station, Washington. Upon these trips, an in- 
structor accompanies the class and explains the different processes, 
plants and machines.

THE MILITARY DEPABTMENT. 

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

The Congress of the United States, subject to certain conditions, 
now appropriates annually a generous sum for each Agricultural 
College of the United States. 

One of the conditions imposed by this grant is that the students 
shall receive a course of training in Military Tactics. 

The instructor for this course is supplied by the War Department 
and is an officer of the Regular Army, detailed from his company 
for this duty. 

The value of such military training may be considered from two 
view points: First, that of the United States Government, and 
Second, that of the individual student. 

To consider the first : The Government, depending as it does upon 
the citizen soldier for its Volunteer Army in times of national peril, 
realizes that an army, recruited from raw material as regards both 
officers and men, would be a most hopeless proposition In these 
days of quick action. If the officers were trained men they would be 
of inestimable value in shaping these collections of citizens Into 
efficient armies. 

Government aided schools are therefore required to give such 
a course In Military Tactics as will create in this country a body of 
men, whose knowledge of the Military Art Is sufficient to enable 
them to officer companies of infantry when called upon by the 
Government in the defense of the country. 

From the view point of the student, the military training makes 
for character — "It systematically develops the body and it educates 



the mind along a consistent line for the double purpose of clear 
thinking and effective practical work." 

"It exercises the character, it disciplines the mind, it inculcates 
habits of subordination to lawful authority, of strict personal ac- 
countability for word and act, of truth telling, of integrity and 
fidelity to trust; of simplicity of life and of courage." 

In addition a cadet has during his term as such, most excellent 
opportunities to perfect himself in the great art of commanding 
others. 

This problem is for every cadet to solve some time during his 
cadet career. He finds that he must know his men, and that he 
must know how to appeal to those under him, if he wishes to get 
results without antagonizing them. 

How often capable men fail, simply because they have not the 
knack of exercising authority so as to obtain the most satisfactory 
results. 

Often do graduates, even those to whom the military training 
was distasteful, express their appreciation of the value that this train- 
ing which they received at College, is to them in their several walks 
of life, 

INSPECTION. 

The War Department designates an officer of the Regular Army 
to make an annual inspection of the Military Department of each of 
the institutions of learning in the United States at which an officer is 
regularly detailed. There are about one hundred such institutions. 
This inspector rates these schools according to their military effi- 
ciency. The ten highest are designated as "Distinguished Institu- 
tions," and each of such institutions has the privilege of naming one 
of its graduating class for a second lieutenant's commission in the 
Regular Army of the United States, 

The graduate so fortunate as to be selected for this honor is 
required to pass only a physical examination before being com- 
missioned. 

At the last annual inspection, the Maryland Agricultural College 
was designated a "Distinguished Institution" and therefore had the 
privilege of naming a graduate of the Qass of 1910, who received 



74 



his commission as second lieutenant of infantry on September 24, 
1910. 

Only one other Agricultural College in the United States enjoys 
this distinction, and these two are the first, and thus far the only 
Agricultural Colleges which have ever attained to this distin- 
guished class. 

ORGANIZATION. 

The Corps of Cadets is organized as a battalion of three com- 
panies, staff and band, the drill and administration of which con- 
form as far as possible to that of the Regular Army. 
.' All students, other than those physically disabled, and those 
at least twenty-one years of age who are not living in the dormi- 
tories, are required to drill, and upon entering are enrolled in one 
of the companies of the battalion. 

INSTRUCTION. 

The instruction in the Military Department is both practical and 
theoretical. 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 Regulations, 
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 mag- 
azine rifle, caliber 30, known as the Krag-Jorgensen, with complete 
equipment of side arms, cartridge box., etc. The cadet officers and 



»^ 



5 



non-commissioned staff officers are equipped with the regulation 
West Point cadet sword and sash. 

The Government also has supplied the battalion with the new 
regulation sub-calibre target rifle for gallery practice, and has 
been very liberal in the allowance of ammunition for gallery prac- 
tice, of blank cartridges for field exercises, and of ball cartridges 
for outdoor range practice. 

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 se- 
lected with reference primarily to their fitness for the duties they 
will be required to perform. Their general deportment and pro- 
ficiency in academic work are also given weight in making such se~ 
lection. 

Commissioned officers are selected from the Senior Class, ser- 
geants from the Junior Class, and corporals from the Sophomore 
Qass. 

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 com- 
mission. 

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 con- 
sidered. 

-i . • ' • 

DISCIPLINE. 

The discipline of the institution is under the charge of the Com- 
mandant of Cadets at all times. 

All rules and orders relating to the organization and government 
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 
liaving been approved by the President. 

76 



Trivial breaches of regulations, absences from classes and for- 
mations are punished by awarding demerits, confinement to quar- 
ters, walking extra punishment tours, etc. 

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 num- 
ber 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) de- 
merits 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 de- 
merit per day for any term, shall be suspended for the following 
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-Fresh- 
man 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 expulsion from the 
College. 

Every applicant for admision, before he is allowed to matriculate 
is required to give a special pledge to refrain from what is popu- 
larly 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. 

The uniform worn by all members of the battalion of cadets is 
the regulation West Point fatigue uniform, and is made of the best 
Charlottesville gray cloth. The uniform consists of the gray fatigue 

17 



blouse, trousers and cap, with white cross belt and white waist belt 
for all military formations. By special contract with one of the 
largest Military Equipment Houses in the United States, the uni- 
form and equipment is furnished at a very low price. The cost of 
this uniform and equipment last year was : 

Fatigue coat $7-95 

Fatigue trousers 5.45 

Fatigue cap 1.60 

White waist belt with plate .50 

White cross belt and equipment .50 



Total $16.00 

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

Deposits for this uniform must be made with the Treasurer when 
the measure is taken, as no uniform will be ordered until the money 
has been deposited for the same. 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 I campaign hat .95 

I pair puttee leggins 85 

I 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. 

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

• 78 



The gray military overcoat has been adopted by the College as 
the regulation overcoat. It is made of the same material as the 
uniform and is a very warm and durable garment which will last 
for years. The cost of this overcoat is $19.75. The purchase of the 
overcoat is optional, but it is advised that it be purchased, since no 
overcoat other than the gray, may be worn with the gray uniform. 

The full dress coat worn by a majority of the cadets of the bat- 
talion for all social functions, etc., is of the regulation West Point 
pattern. The dresscoat is optional. The cost is $10.90. 

White gloves and collars may be purchased at the stores near the 



College. 



CADET BAND. 



The cadet band is one of the most attractive features of the Mili- 
tary Department. It is the means of a great deal of pleasure to 
the cadets, as well as an absolute necessity in furthering the inter- 
■est of the military exercises. 

The band has twenty-four members and is under the direction 
of an experienced and competent bandmaster employed by the 
College. 

Students having musical ability, or those who wish to learn to 
play some instrument, will be taken into the band and receive in- 
struction free of charge. 

Instruments and music are furnished by the College. Members 
of the band are excused from certain military duties, but in other 
respects are subject to the usual military regulations. 

Band rehearsals are held each day at the regular drill period, 
•and absence from rehearsal without excuse, is equivalent to ab- 
'sence from any class. 

The band furnishes music for all military ceremonies, such as 
Guard-Mounting, Dress Parade, Review and Inspection, and Butt's 
Drill ; and for baseball and football games. It has filled a number of 
engagements in different parts of the State for Farmers' Institutes, 
•picnics, etc. During the spring and summer months it gives a series 
of open air concerts for the entertainment of the students and vis- 
itors. 

An orchestra of fifteen pieces composed mostly of members of 
the band, is being rapidly brought to a high degree of perfection. 
It furnishes music for social functions, Y. M. C. A. meetings, etc.

DEPARTMENT OF ORATOEY. 

CHARLES S. RICHARDSON, PROFESSOR. 

The object of this Department is to give a thorough training 
in public speaking. The work is begun with easy lessons in elo- 
cution, and this is continued until the student has acquired a mas- 
tery 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 logi- 
cal thought.

DEPAETMENT OF PHYSICAL CULTURE. 

CHARLES S. RICHARDSON, DIRECTOR. 
J. P. GRASON, ASSISTANT. 

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 

81 



means of which measurements and strength tests of students are 
taken at the beginning and also at the end of each scholastic year. 
By means of these measurements and tests the exact physical con- 
dition 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.

*^ PREPARATORY DEPARTMENT. 

f 

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

This Department was established in 1892, and reorganized in 
1909; 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 Fresh- 
man 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 regular 
collegiate course, by virtue of such a drawback, would be seriously 

82 



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 regu- 
lations as other students. 

For outline of courses see page io8. 



VETERINARY DEPARTMENT. 

SAMUEL S. BUCKLEY^ PROFESSOR. 

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 domesticated 
animals. It is intended to supplement animal husbandry instruc- 
tion, and does not have for its object the training of students for 
veterinary practice. The preservation in health of animals 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. 

COURSES OFFERED. 

The accompanying brief descriptions indicate the scope of the 
different courses. 

340. Sanitation. Public discussion has emphasized a neces- 
sity for better practices in the production and care of animal pro- 
ducts used for human food. The study of sanitation, therefore, 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 re- 
ceive some instruction in this subject. It is given, therefore, early 
in the course before specialization of subjects is made. 

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

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 materials, 
animal and dairy products; and incidentally the storage of har- 

83 



ness and implements. Convenience, economy and proper sanita- 
tion are especially considered in the study of plans and location. 
The course is made as practical as possible by the study of plans, 
specifications and photographs of existing structures, and by draw- 
ing simple plans to express individual ideas. 

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

342. Anatomy and Physiology. This course embraces a gen- 
eral 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. The study of bacteria, including their 
microscopic examination, cultivation and sterilization, is made. 
The intimate relation which this subject bears to fertilization, dairy- 
ing and plant and animal diseases makes it important in the list of 
agricultural subjects. 

Junior Year — Second Term, 2 theoretical and 4 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 Agriculture 
and Horticulture. 

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

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 intel- 
ligently care for them under proper veterinary supervision. 

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

84 . 



1911-12. 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 HBRAUY. 

F. B. BOMBERGER, LIBRARIAN. 

The College Library may be properly regarded as one of the de- 
partments of the institution, as its aid for purposes of reference and 
its influence upon the mental development of the students must al- 
ways 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 reading room is well ar- 
ranged and lighted, and is in all respects comfortable and conven- 
ient. 

While the Library is not large, the collection of works has been 
carefully chosen, and the shelves contain a fair supply of works of 
reference, history, biography, essays, poetry and the standard 
works of fiction. Several thousand volumes of bound United States 
Government Reports comprise an important addition to the refer- 
ence works of the Library. Most of the leading magazines and a 
number of newspapers are subscribed for; technical periodicals and 
works of reference relating to specific branches are deposited in the 
libraries of the various departments. 

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 com- 
pleted to date, or nearing completion, sets of the reports and bul- 
letins of the United States Agricultural Department, the Geological 
Survey, the Fish Commission, the Smithsonian Institution, the Na- 

85 . 



tional Museum, the Bureau of Ethnology, the Bureau of Educa- 
tion, the Labor Bureau, the Census Bureau and the Bureau of 
American Republics. There are also nearly completed 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 pub- 
lications 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 de- 
partments and bureaus above noted for their publications, and es- 
pecially 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 with- 
in limits consistent with the normal development of individual stu- 
dents, eight distinct courses of study have been prepared, one of 
which the student is expected to choose upon entering the regular 
College work. 

These courses are Agriculture (including Agronomy and Ani- 
mal Husbandry), Horticulture, 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 sat- 
isfactory. A broad and liberal foundation in English, Mathemat- 
ics and History is laid in the Freshman and Sophomore 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 periods per week are 
given, the numbers in parenthesis denoting practical or laboratory 
periods, the others theoretical or recitation periods. 



AGRICULTURAL COURSES. 

Four- Year Course in Agriculture. 

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 prosecute successfully advanced 
scientific research along the lines of agronomy or animal husbandry. 
With this end in view, the course has been made at once compre- 
hensive and technical, comprehensive enough to include whatever 
is necessary for the complete development of the work, yet techni- 
cal 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 clear- 
ly shown also that in agriculture the practical must keep even pace 
with the theoretical, and that true education 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 Hus- 
bandry, 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 rela- 
tions which must exist betwen 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 also put into the feeding trough for the animal. To meet 
the demand for instruction along these lines, and for a better un- 
derstanding 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 conducted today, is a 
union of many interests. To enter this Course a working knowledge 



88 



of arithmetic, including fractions, mensuration and percentage, and 
a common-school training in English, is required.

purely practical information about farming in all its phases. This 
Course is invaluable to the young man desiring that information 
on agricultural topics so necessary to meet the sharp competition 



of the present day. The College authorities have removed the nom- 
inal charge of $5.00. They are anxious to have the young men of 
Maryland who intend to remain on the farm embrace this oppor- 
tunity. Many cannot afford a four-year course and this solves the 
problem for them. 

Each student will be required to take not less than two hundred 
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 topics as the stu- 
dent may elect from the following: Veterinary Science, 40 hours; 
Tobacco Culture, 5 hours; Plant Physiology and Pathology, 15 
hours; Economic Entomology, 20 hours; Carpentering and Black- 
smithing, 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 supplies. 
Good board at moderate rates can be secured in the neighboring 
villages of Berwyn, Lakeland, Riverdale and Hyattsville — all within 
a short distance of the College and Experiment Station. Electric 
cars make frequent connections. A limited number can be accom- 
modated at the College at $40.00 for the Course. Students will be 
expected to furnish their own bed clothes, pillows, towels and nap- 
kins, as well as overalls for dairy work. 

Short Course students are not required to drill or wear uniforms. 



HORTICULTURAL COURSE. 

FOUR-YEAR COURSE IN HORTICULTURE. 

The Horticultural Course is designed to give practical and sci- 
entific instruction in the great productive occupation of horticul- 
ture. 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 

91 



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 mater-

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. Excursions are made 
by the students to floral establishments in Baltimore and Washing- 
ton 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 Society, by its meetings and exhibitions, affords 
the horticultural students of the College excellent training work 
in identifying, noting and judging fruit and vegetables. 

TWO-YEAR COURSE IN HORTICULTURE. 

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

This Course includes practically all of the subjects given in the 
Department of Horticulture and those of the courses in agricul- 
ture that are of importance for the study of general horticulture. 
Besides these, there is also a good training in English, 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 Government 

93 



and of the state experiment stations, as well as in the state in- 
spection work, for which this Course gives training. In fact, it 
is now difficult to secure men trained for such work. Full oppor- 
tunity 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

GENERAL COURSE. 

The General Course is offered to those young men who have 
not chosen as their vocation in life any of the technical professions, 
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, will find in the curriculum of this Course a highly satis- 
factory preparation for such work. While emphasis has been placed 
upon the cultural subjects, such as English, Language, Literature, 
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. 



CIVIL ENGINEERING COURSE. 

This Course offers a young man an opportunity to obtain train- 
ing in civil engineering which will enable him to engage in practical 
engineering work in the field or in the drafting room with the as- 
surance that he has the necessary preparation to profit by the ex- 
perience thus afforded; or which will entitle him to advanced 
standing, if he desires to pursue a more extended course at a tech- 
nical school of a higher grade. The curriculum, which is outlined 
for 1911-12 on page 98, includes not only studies having culture 
value, but the sciences which form the basis of engineering. Stu- 
dents who have found themselves deficient in ability to learn math- 
ematics 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 re- 
ouired 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 cur- 
rent engineering magazines. 



97 



ELECTRICAL ENGINEEBING COURSE. 

This Course was introduced because of the great demand for 
young men who are not only well trained in the practical con- 
struction 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.

♦Alternative. 

The general plan of the Course is 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. 



98 



The curriculum, as outlined, includes those studies which pro- 
vide a broad general culture, as well as a good foundation for the 
engineering work which follows. From the beginning of the Sec- 
ond Term of the Sophomore Year the electrical training extends 
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 mathematics, 

99 



especiallly in the last two years, when problems in machine design 
are worked out, and so far as time allows, the parts designed are ac- 
tually constructed. The practical work of this Course is most thor- 
ough. 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 encouraged to develop whatever 
inventive talent he may have. Results have shown that students 
completing this Course have no difficulty in securing employment 
immediately upon graduation in the field of mechanics or mechani- 
cal engineering,

GENERAL INFORMATION. 
EEQTJIKEMEJfTS FOE ADMISSIOIf. 

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 to ascertaining 
the applicant's g-eneral knowledge of the principles involved. 
Examinations for 1911-12 will be held at the College on Tuesday, 
September 12th, and Wednesday, September 13th. Morning 
sessions will begin at 9.30; afternoon sessions, at i.oo 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 his- 
tory, 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 equiv- 
alent to that given at the College for promotion to the class they 
desire to enter. Experience has proved that it is almost impos- 
sible for a new student to succeed in the work of the Mechanical 
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. 

Students from newly acquired territory or any foreign country 
must have a local 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 sat- 
isfactory progress at this College on their part cannot be expected 

no 



until they have famiharized themselves partly, at least, with the 
English language. 

EXAMDTATIOIfS AND PEOMOTIOIfS. 

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. 

EEPOETS. 

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, No- 
vember, January, February and April. These give general infor- 
mation as to scholarship, conduct, attendance and health, and call 
attention to deficiency in any one of these particulars.

(2) The appointment is made by the School Board of each 
county and of Baltimore City after due notice in some local paper. 

(3) In case there are more applicants than one, the selection 
shall be made by competitive examination and the candidate who 
proves best qualified by such examination shall be selected for this 
scholarshio. 

J. 

(4) In case of a tie, the award shall be made to the candidate 
less able financially to meet the expense of an education. 

(5) An alternate may be named and certified to the President 
of the College and said alternate shall be eligible to hold the schol- 
arship if the principal shall fail to qualify or withdraw during the 
year succeeding his appointment. 

(6) The appointment shall be made for a term of four years. 

(7) The holder of such scholarship: (a) — must be qualified to en- 
ter the Sub-Freshman Class of this College, that is, he shall have

ous student from another county who meets the requirements, and

STUDEIfT OPPOBTUJflTIES. 

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 the 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 FOE KELIGIOUS WOESfflP. 

The College is undenominational in character. The daily exer- 
cises of the College are opened with religious worship in the Col- 
lege 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 Meth- 
odist churches. In the city of Washington are churches of all de- 
nominations, and leave is granted to students to attend service in 
this city on Sunday mornings. Parents are urged to insist upon 
their sons attending the church of the faith of their parents. 

116 



COLLEGE REGULATIONS. 

j 

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 maximum amount of training upon the 
student only with and by the active support and earnest co-opera- -i 

tion of the parent. The President of the College is always ready j 

and willing to discuss any failures in a student's record with his 
parent or guardian, and correspondence on this subject is always 
appreciated. 

No student will be accepted as a matriculate until the contract ^ 

card containing the following agreement for matriculation is j 

signed by parent or guardian, and received by the President of j 

the College. ^i 

"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 this 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 institution which he 
attends. It is further understood that a parent or gnardian can at any 
time withdraw his son or ward, subject to regulations herein set forth. 

A cadet manifesting indifference to the observance of the 
rules and regulations of the institution, or wanting in proper at- '.^ 

tention to the preparation of his work, will be cautioned to improve. '; 

Failing to do so his parents, upon 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 ma- i 

triculate. 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 great disad- 
vantage to the student, in breaking in upon the continuity of his work 
and in distracting his mind from the main purpose of 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. 

117 ' * ^ 



Students will not be permitted to make contracts or to sell any 
article of 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 COLLEGIATE ROUTINE, ENDORSED BY THE 

FACULTY.

UJriFOEM. 

The uniform is the same as worn at the United States Military 
Academy at West Point. It is made of the best Charlottesville gray 
cloth, under a special contract with one of the best Military 

120 



Equipment Houses in the United States. This uniform is fur- 
nished at a very low price. 

The uniform consists of gray fatigue blouse, gray fatigue trous- 
ers and gray fatigue cap, with white waist belt and white cross 
belt for all military formations. The cost of this uniform and equip- 
ment last year was : 

Fatigue blouse $7-95 

Fatigue trousers 5.45 

Tatigue cap 1.60 

White waist belt with plate .50 

' Whitecross belt and equipment .50 

Total $16.00 

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

Deposits for this uniform must be made with the Treasurer when 
the measure is taken, as no uniform will be ordered until the money 
has been deposited for the same. 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 leggings, regulation campaign 
hat, black leather waist belt and black tie. 

The cost of the summer outfit is : 

4 chambray shirts at 45 cents $1.80 

I campaign hat .95 

I pair puttee leggings .85 

I black leather belt 20 

1 black four-in-hand tie .20 

2 pair of white duck trousers 2.50 

Total for summ.er uniform $6.50 

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

The gray military overcoat has been adopted by the College as 
the regulation overcoat. It is made of the same material as the 

121 * 



uniform and is a warm and durable garment which will last for 
years. The purchase of the overcoat is optional, but it is advised 
that it be purchased since no overcoat other than the gray may be 
worn with the uniform. The cost is $19.75. 

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

ARTICLES NECESSAET TO BE PROVIDED. 

All students are required to provide themselves with the following 
ing articles, to be brought from home or purchased from the Col- 
lege Park stores on arrival : 

I dozen white standing collars. 

6 pairs v/hite gloves (uniform). 

6 pairs white cuffs. 

1 pair blankets (for single bed). 

2 pairs sheets (for single bed). 
4 pillov/ cases. 

I chair (uniform). 
6 towels. 
8 table napkins. 
I pillow. 

1 mattress (uniform). 

2 clothes bags (uniform). 
I broom. 

All the articles marked (uniform) in the foregoing list can best 
be purchased after the student arrives at the College. The 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. 



ACKNOWLEDGMENTS. 

DO^fATIOJfS. — Grateful acknowledgment is hereby made to the 
Hon. Peter Novik, State Horticulturist of Norway, for a number 



122 



of valuable specimens of pressed plants and grasses, donated to the 
Botanical Department in memory of the late Professor Peter Novik, 
who collected and arranged these specimens when connected with 
this Institution as Associate Professor of Horticulture. 

The Library is indebted to Mr. Alexander M. Fulford, of Bel Air, 
Md., for sets complete to date, of the "Country Gentleman" and 
''Breeders' Gazette," respectively. 

MEDALS. — The authorities of the Institution take this opportunit}' 
to express their appreciation of the courtesy of their friends in es- 
tablishing the following, for competition : — 

William Pinkney Whyte Medal, for excellence in Oratory, offered 
by Hon. Isaac Lobe Straus, of Baltimore, Md. 

Winfield Scott Schley Prize, for excellence in Oratory, offered 
by B. H. Warner, Esq., of Kensington. Md. 

James Douglas Goddard Memorial Medal, to student of Prince 
George County making the highest average in studies, offered by 
his sister, Mrs. Annie K. Goddard James, of Washington, D. C. 



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 student honor.

LITEBAET SOCIETIES. 

These societies are invaluable adjuncts to college work. Through 
them a knowledge of parliamentary law is gained, as well as a 
readiness of expression and activity in thought, qualities particu- 
larly 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.

ATHLETIC COUJrCIL. 

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 OBATORICAL ASSOCIATION OF MAETLAND 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 or- 
ganization.

THE ALUMJfl 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 arc 
becoming m.ore active and more interested in all that pertains to 
the welfare of their Alma Mater, 

The Association has continued the ofier of medals for worthy 
students in the several collegiate departments, and there is no 
doubt as to 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 ofifered, and 
should bind us more closely to the work of the present and to the 
broadening of the scope in the future. 

The advent of the Triangle, published by the students of the Col- 
lege and devoted to the interests of the College Students and Alum- 
ni, is looked upon as being a m.ost progressive step. The Alumni 
page, through its editor, Mr, E. P. Walls, '03, has been most in- 
teresting and instructive. 

The officers for the year are : President, W. D. Grofif, '00 ; Vice- 
President, S. M. Peach, '00; Secretary-Treasurer, T. B. Symons, 
'02; Executive Committee, members at large, R. H. Dixon, '06; 
S. H. Harding, '95. 

Graduates and members of the association are requested to keep 
the Secretary-Treasurer, T. B. Symons, College Park, Md., in- 
formed of any changes in their addresses. Any information con- 
cerning 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.
