MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. 



HISTORY. 



''An act to establish and endow an agricultural college in the 
State of Maryland" was passed by the Legislature of the State in 
1856, and is found in Chapter 97 of the Laws of Maryland for that 
year. The scope of this act of incorporation is shown by the 
preamble, which reads as follows: 

"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 pur- 
suits; and 

Whereas, It doth appear to this Legislature, that 
while the wise and learned in the present age hath 
cultivated with laudable industry, and applied with 
admirable success the arts and sciences to other 
pursuits, the most necessary, useful and honorable 
pursuits of agriculturists have so far been lament- 
ably neglected; and 

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

13 



This was the first effort in the Western Hemisphere to use 
scientific investigation for the advancement of the vocation of Agri- 
culture, 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 students 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 valuable 
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, "without 
excluding other scientific and classical studies, and including mili- 
tary tactics, to teach such branches of learning as are related to 
agriculture and the mechanic arts, in such manner as the Legisla- 
tures of the States" might "respectively prescribe, in order to 
promote the liberal and practical education of the industrial classes 
in the several pursuits and professions of life, ' ' This grant having 
been formally accepted by the General Assembly of Maryland, and 
the Maryland Agricultural College being named as the beneficiary 
of the grant, the College thus became, in part, at least, a State 
institution, and such it is at the present time. 

During recent years the College has made a steady growth. 
This fact is evidenced by the increased number of students availing 
themselves of its facilities ; by the erection of many new buildings — 
the library and gymnasium building, the chemical laboratory, Mor- 
rill Hall, the sanitarium, the administration building and barracks, 
and the engineering building; as well as by the establishment of 
the Department of Farmers' Institutes and the State Departments 
of Horticulture, Entomology and Vegetable Pathology, and Chem- 
istry (Fertilizer and Feed Control). As a consequence of its de- 
velopment under such favorable auspices the institution has become 
the most important factor in the agricultural and industrial devel- 
opment of the State. 

14 



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

LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION. 

The Maryland Agricultural College is located in Prince George's 
county, Maryland, on the line of the Washington Branch of the 
B. & 0. 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 
Boulevard. 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 railway. The 
site of the CoUege is particularly beautiful. The buildings occupy 
the crest of a commanding hill, which is covered with forest trees, 
and overlooks the entire surrounding country. In front, extend- 
ing to the Boulevard, is a broad, rolling campus, the drill ground 
and athletic field of the students. In the rear are the farm build- 
ings and barn. A quarter of a mile to the northeast are the 
buildings of the Experiment Station. The College farm contains 
about three hundred acres, and is devoted to fields, gardens, orch- 
ards, vineyard, poultry yards, etc., used for experimental purposes 
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 exceUent. No better proof of this can be given than that there 
has been practically no serious case of illness among the students 
for many years. 

COLLEGE BUILDINGS. 
The original barracks, erected in 1859, is a five-story brick build- 
ing, containing the student quarters and the Domestic Department. 

15 



The dormitories are large, well ventilated and provided 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 modem 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 modem 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 
efficient means of isolating infectious diseases which might other- 
wise have become epidemic, thus seriously embarrassing College 
work. It contains ample room for all emergencies, and is furnished 
with modern hospital facilities. An experienced nurse is in con- 
stant attendance, and the CoUege surgeon is present every day at 
a fixed hour to treat any cadet requiring his services.

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

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

Among recent improvements are : A complete renovation of the 
original College barracks ; a modem steam heating plant ; gas and 
electric lighting; lavatories; steam laundry; forced ventilation; 
etc. ; all of which furnish quarters and class rooms with unusually 
good sanitary arrangements. 

GENERAL AIM AND PURPOSE. 

The Agricultural College is the State school of science and 
technology. While seeking, first of all, to perform the functions 
of an agricultural college, its sphere of work has been widened to 
embrace all the sciences akin to agriculture, and all the arts related 
to mechanical training. To these special and prominent lines of 
work have been added such branches of study as are necessary for 
a liberal education, for the development of the 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 prepared 
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 insti- 
tution, in part supported by the State, in part by the Federal Gov- 
ernment, 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, sev- 
eral distinct courses of instruction, looking to the special training 

17 



of 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, 
jear, 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 CoUege a possible one 
for all those actuated by an earnest desire to complete their edu- 
cation.

DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE. 

W. T. L. TALIAFERRO, PROFESSOR. 

F. w. besley, lecturer. 

E. H. RUFFNER, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. 
FRANK T. WILSON, INSTRUCTOR. 

The Agricultural Department offers three courses: 

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

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

19 



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

Education is transforming the farms into veritable work-shops, 
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 AGRONOMY. 

The Division of Agronomy takes up the agricultural work per- 
taining to the field and its crops. A number of courses are offered. 
These treat of farm crops, their classification, 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 labora- 

m 



tory has been added to this Department. In this laboratory the 
student has an excellent opportunity to study the physical proper- 
ties of the different kinds of soils. A separate desk with ample ap- 
paratus is provided each student to perform experiments for him- 
self. 

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 un- 
der proper management. Instruction is given by field and labora- 
tory 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, 1 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 aU agriculture, and a knowledge of its properties and func- 
tions cannot be too highly emphasized. The study of this important 
subject is conducted by means of lectures, text-books, laboratory 
and field work. No State in the Union possesses a greater variety 
of soils than Maryland, and great attention is paid to the study of 
soil types in their relation to profitable agriculture. 

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



The text-book used is ''The Soil," by King. 
Sophomore and First Year — First and Second Term, 2 theo- 
retical and 4 practical periods per week. 

4. Faem 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 care- 
ful note-taking and study of the results obtained in breeding work 
in corn and other fall maturing crops on the Experiment Station 
farm. 

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

6. Fertilizers. Of vital interest to the eastern and southern 
farmer of the present day is the fertilizing question. Between it 
and the profit and loss account is a very close connection, and fre- 
quently 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. 

7. Farm MACHnsrERY. Lectures and practical work.

11. Grain Judging. This course consists of a critical compara- 
tive study of the cereals and other farm seeds from the standpoint 
of market grading and fitness for seed purposes. It is designed to 
familiarize the student so with the subject that he may not only 
handle his own crops to the best advantage, but may also be quali- 
fied to act as a judge at county fairs, grain shows, etc. Instruction 
is given by means of laboratory practice and lectures. 

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

The latter half of the term is devoted to the geology of Maryland, 
especially as affecting the character of the soils, mineral wealth and 
other economic conditions of the State. Instruction is given by 
means of text-book work, lectures and field excursions. 

Shaler's ''First Book in Geology" is used as a text-book. The 
reports of the Maryland Geological Survey are used for reference. 

Freshman Year — First Term, 4 theoretical and 2 practical per- 
iods per week. 



GEOGRAPHY. 



COURSES OFFERED.

DIVISION OF ANBIAL HUSBANDRY. 

The Division of Animal Husbandry stands for all lines of work 
which pertain to the judging, selecting, breeding, feeding, devel- 
opment, care and management of the various breeds and classes of 
domesticated animals. Good herds of stock are being 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 
studj^ The Heurich dairy farm, close by, furnishes an excellent 
example in dairy farming. It is quite evident that there is but one 
way to make a young man a proficient judge of live stock, 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 speci- 
mens. 

24 



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 detailed 
study of the breeds of live stock. The practical work commences 
with a study of the animal form by the use of the score-card. 
Especial attention is given to the relation of form to function. 
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.

Term, 4 theoretical and 4 practical periods per week. 

1912-13. Senior Year — First and Second Term, 4 practical per- 
iods per week; Third Term, 3 theoretical and 6 practical periods 
per week. 



DIVISION OF FORESTRY. 
The instruction in Forestry has two main objects in view : 

1. To give to the student, who is fitting himself to take up the 
practical problems of farm management, a sufiieient knowledge of 
the principles of forestry to enable him to apply to the wood lot or 
timber tract, which is a part of practically every farm, the same de- 
gree of intelligent direction which he is prepared to give to the 
tilled lands and thus obtain equally satisfactory results. 

2. To give the student in engineering a practical knowledge of 
the physical properties and uses of the common structural woods 
which will enable him to solve more intelligently the problems of 
construction in which wood may enter as an important element. 

The following courses in Forestry are offered : 

40. Elementary Forestry. A practical course embodying a 

27 



general survey of the subject, and its relation to agriculture and 
other industries. 

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

41. Farm Forestry. This course includes forest botany, wood- 
lot management, measurement, valuation and utilization of forest 
crops, fire protection, nursery practice and tree planting. Lectures 
and field work. 

Senior and Second Year — First Term, 2 theoretical and 4 prac- 
tical periods per week. 

42. Wood Technology. A study of the common commercial 
woods, their structure, identification, uses and strength values, as 
determined by tests in compression, cross bending, shearing, etc. 

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



DSPAETMENT OF BOTANY AND VEGETABLE PATHOLOGY. 

J. B. S. NORTON, PROFESSOR. 
J. B. DEMAREE, 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, generalization 
and other mental processes essential to true scientific methods in 
any work ; and to furnish a basis for practical studies directly con- 
nected 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 
consist of a reference library containing the principal botanical 
works needed by students, charts and maps, compound and dissect- 
ing microscopes, preserved specimens for illustration and a repre- 
sentative collection of Maryland plants; microtome and other in- 
struments together with reagents and apparatus for histological 
work and physiological experiments; and a culture room, steriliz- 
ers, incubators and other facilities for the study of plant diseases. 



Advanced students have an opportunity to observe the work be- 
ing done in the laboratory of Vegetable Pathology and greenhouse 
of the State Horticultural Department, and, if competent, to assist 
in the same. Special attention is given to students who wish prac- 
tice 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 stu- 
dent an idea of the work taken up in the various branches of bot- 
any, with the view to better enabling him to decide later whether 
he wishes to specialize in this subject. 

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

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

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

62. Seeds and "Weeds. By examination and careful study the 
student becomes familiar with the ordinary field and garden seeds, 
and with the weed seeds which are commonly found as adulterants. 
He is thus enabled to identify these at sight. A study of the 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, 
flowers and fruit are studied in the laboratory, with a brief con- 
sideration of the functions of the different plant organs, a more 
complete course in plant phj^siology (66) being given later. 

There is also field work, with the manual on the native flora, de- 
signed 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.

DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY. 

H. B. MCDONNELL, PEOPESSOR. 

L. B. BROUGHTON, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR. 

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

The Chemical Laboratory Building is devoted entirely to 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 students' balance room with first-class chemical and 
assay balances and a supply room. The assay furnaces are in the 
basement. Each student is provided with a working desk, lockers, 
reagents and apparatus. Additional apparatus and materials are 
provided from the supply room, as needed. 

The Department is provided with a small, but well-selected, 
library of standard reference books on chemistry, to which 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 recita- 

32 



tious, 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 atten- 
tion is given to the elements and compounds of practical and eco- 
nomic importance, such as the air, water and soil, the elements en- 
tering into the composition of plants and animals, the useful metals, 
etc. The course in the Sophomore Year is intended to give the stu- 
dent that practical and theoretical knowledge of elementary chem- 
istry, which is essential in the education of every man, no matter 
what his vocation. It also serves as a foundation for advanced 
work in chemistry, if such a course is chosen. 

Advanced work in chemistry begins with the Junior Year, if the 
Course in Chemistry is selected, and the larger part of the stu- 
dent'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.

DEPARTMENT OF ELECTEICAL ENGINEERING AND PHYSICS- 

MYRON CREESE, PROFESSOR. 

ELECTRICAL ENGINEEPJNG. 
The work of the Electrical Engineering Course is so arranged as 
to give the student a thorough understanding of the fundamental 

40 



principles of the various branches of electrical engineering, and at 
the same time to teach him to apply these principles to the prac- 
tical problems with which the engineer has to deal. This purpose 
is carried out by means of lectures and recitations in the class-room, 
supplemented by practical work in the laboratories and drawing 
room. 

Equipment. The Electrical Engineering Laboratories are lo- 
cated in the east wing of the new engineering building. The iDorns 
on the first floor are used for lectures, recitations and experimental 
demonstrations by the instructor; a room on the second floor is 
equipped with apparatus for experimental work in telephone en- 
gineering; 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 
for the testing laboratory: 

A Leeds and Northrup potentiometer, including a volt box, 
standard resistance, Weston standard cell, and wall type galvano- 
meter with telescope and scale to be used for ealilirating the various 
ammeters and voltmeters used in the laboratory. A Queen & Co. 
standard photometer, for measuring the distribution of light from 
incandescent lamps, with all the necessary insiruraents 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 0.0001 to 500 volts ; ammeters ranging from 0.0004 to 100 
amperes; a standard curve drawing alternating and direct current 
voltmeter; frequency meter; voltmeter mutipliers; ammeter 
shunts. A Siemen's electro-dynamometer; various types of indi- 
cating and integrating wattmeters; heating devices; and commer- 
cial types of condensers. The above instruments were obtained 
from the Weston Electrical Instrument Co., Queen & Co., the We.st- 
inghouse Electric Manufacturing Co., and the General Electric Co. 

41 



Ill addition there are D'Arsonval galvanometers, both ballistic and 
light movement, furnished with lamp and scale; standard resist- 
ance 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. . . , 

A General Electric Co. turbine, direct connected 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-gener- 
ator 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 sjaichronous motor and as an alternating current 
generator for testing purposes. A 5 horse-power variable speed 
commutating pole motor. A 7.5 kilowatt, 60 cycle, 220 volt, alter- 
nating current generator designed to operate either as a polyphase 
alternating current generator, synchronous motor, frequency 
changer, constant speed induction motor, or variable speed induc- 
tion motor; the following parts are supplied with the set to make 
possible its operation in any of the above named ways ; — a station- 
ary armature for use either as an alternating current generator or 
as an induction motor field ; a revolving field ; a squirrel cage induc- 
tion motor rotor with starting compensator having self-contained 
switches; an induction motor rotor with internal starting resist- 
ance; and an induction motor rotor with 3 phase collector rings, 
external resistance, and controller. A 2 kilowatt booster set, con- 
sisting of a series motor and shunt generator with armatures 
mounted on the same shaft. A 5 horse-power compound direct cur- 
rent motor and a 1.5 horse-power shunt motor fully enclosed. A 7.5 
kilowatt, 120 volt, 3 phase self-excited generator direct connected 
to a 7.5 horse-power, 115 volt compound direct current motor. A 
motor-generator set consisting of a 3.6 horse-power shunt motor 
direct connected to a 2 kilowatt compound generator. A 3 horse- 

42 



power, 3 phase induction motor. Two 2 kilowatt transformers to 
transform power from 110 or 220 volts to 1100 or 2200 volts. Vari- 
ous types of starting rheostats witli automatic overload and no volt- 
age release ; field rheostats. The above apparatus was made by the 
General Electric Co., the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing 
Co. and the Crocker- Wheeler Co. 

The main switchboard, consisting of two ])lue Vermont marble 
panels on pipe supports, is used to mount the necessary circuit 
breaker, rheostats, switches, etc., to control the generators and mo- 
tors as well as the various circuits in the dynamo room and testing 
laboratory. Wire and water rheostats are arranged for load and 
regulation. Portable lamp-boards are so arranged that they may 
receive, at the proper voltage, from 0.04 to 100 amperes current. 
Portable ammeter, voltmeter and w^attmeter switchboards have 
been constructed for use in machine tests. In addition to the spe- 
cial electrical engineering equipment, the College lighting plant 
will be used for illustrative and experimental purposes. This plant 
contains, together with other apparatus useful in teaching elec- 
trical engineering, two Bullock generators of 40 kilowatts total 
capacity, and a switchboard equipped with a number of Weston 
ammeters, voltmeters and circuit breakers, aitd 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. 

The telephone laboratory is equipped with two demonstration 
sets, which were made by the Western Electric Co. 

The magneto set consists of an oak panel upon which is mounted 
the following apparatus: Two line circuits with combined jacks 
and signals; double wound supervisory drops; complete cord cir- 
cuits including ringing and listening kej^s, operator's telephone 
set, magneto generator, etc. On one line circuit is connected a wall 
type subscriber's set, and on the other, a desk set. . - ,. ^ .. 

The common battery set co]:isists of an oak panel carrying the 
following equipment: Two line circuits with lamp signals; com- 
plete cord circuits, including ringing and listening keys, opera- 
tor's telephone set, magneto generator, split repeating coils, con- 

43 



densers, retardation coil, supervisory lamp, etc. On one of the line 
circuits is connected a wall type subscriber's set, and on the other 
a desk set. 

Both panels have all the wiring exposed to enable the student to 
make a complete study of these two principal types of telephone 
exchanges.

which are especially valuable for giving a clear appreciation of the 
effects of self-inductance, mutual-inductance, and capacity in sin- 
gle-phase and poly-phase alternating current circuits. 

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

The fundamental principles of the machinery are developed in 
the class-room and applied concurrently in the laboratory and 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 switchboards and the in- 
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; 

45 



the manufacture of cables for underground work; and the mate- 
rials used in overhead and conduit systems of distribution. 

The proper arrangement, the t3T)e and the size of boilers, en- 
gines and dynamos in a central station for lighting and power pur- 
poses, 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 system of distribution are 
given. These problems require for their solution a knowledge of 
the rules of the Underwriters' Association."

DEPARTMENT OF ENGLISH AND CIVIOS. 

F. B. BOMBERGER, PROFESSOR. 

CHARLES S. RICHARDSON, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR. 

*C. P. DONNELLY, INSTRUCTOR. 

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

The course in English, of a necessity, lies at the base of all other 
courses of instruction. Clear and comprehensive knowledge of his 
mother tongue is absolutely necessary to the student in pursuing 
any line of college work. Nor is this all ; for aside from the prac- 
tical 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 Eng- 
lish 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 
for the active duties of citizenship. The first year is devoted to the 
study of general history, followed by the principles of civil govern- 
ment, constitutional history, political economy, with special refer- 
ence to current, social and industrial problems, and, finally, lec- 
tures on the elements of business and international law.

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 eomraercial flori- 
culture. The orchards, gardens and new greenhouses of the Ex- 
periment Station offer to students a splendid opportuiiity to ob- 
serve and study modern methods of fruit growing, vegetable grow- 
ing and the forcing of greenhouse flowers and vegetables. The 
work in floriculture is supplemented by trips to modern establish- 
ments of successful greenhouse men in Baltimore, Washington and 
vicinity. Similar trips to supplement the work in landscape gar- 
dening and truck and fruit growing, are made from time to time.

DEPARTMENT OF LANGUAGES. 

THOMAS H. SPENCB, 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. 

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- 

61 



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 
hearing 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.

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 acquisition 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, and 
their application to mechanics, engineering, physics and surveying. 

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

DEPAETMENT OF MECHANIOAL ENGINEBEING. 

HARRY GWINNER, PROFESSOR. 

HOWARD LORENZO CRISP, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR. 

*CHARLES CLAYTON SAUTER, INSTRUCTOR. 

tjOHN FRANKLIN ALLISON, INSTRUCTOR. 

This Department offers a Course in Mechanical Engineering 
leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engi- 
neering. The list of all subjects required to be completed to obtain 
this degree is given on page 99. It prepares young men to design 
and construct machinery, to superintend engineering establish- 
ments, to become superintendents of construction and to teach 
mechanical engineering and manual training. For degree of 
Mechanical Engineer see page 112. 

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

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

The program of the Department is arranged to embody the two- 
fold belief that a thorough training is best secured by a study of 
the practical application of the principles involved, as well as of the 
principles. 

Equipment. The Mechanical Engineering Laboratories are sit- 
uated in the engineering building, which contains the wood-work- 
ing 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 universal circular saw, five 12-inch turning lathes, one 
16-inch by 10-foot pattern maker's lathe, a grindstone, wood trim- 
mer 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 10-inch speed lathe, 
one 22-inch engine-lathe with compound rest, one 12-inch combined 
foot and power lathe, two 14-inch engine-lathes, one 24-inch drill 
press, one No. 4 emery tool grinder, one No. 1% universal milling 
machine, and an assortment of vises, taps, dies, pipe-tools and meas- 
uring instruments. 

The machinery of the pattern and machine shops is driven by a 
9 by 14-inch automatic cut off, high speed engine, built by members 
of the Junior and Senior Mechanical Engineering Classes, after 
the standard design of the Atlas engine. An 8 by 12-inch engine 
drives the machinery of the blacksmith shop and foundry. It was 
presented to the College by the City of Baltimore, and secured 
through the efforts of Rear- Admiral John D. Ford, United States 
Navy, retired. 

The experimental laboratory contains: A hundred thousand 
pound Riehle combined hand and power testing machine for mak- 
ing tensile, compression, shearing and transverse tests on various 
kinds of material, turbo generator set, consisting of a Curtis 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 College so that 
any time it may be tested to its capacity. It may also be used for 
lighting purposes if necessary. A cross compound condensing Cor- 
liss engine of fifty horse-power, equipped vfith brake, indicators, 
relief valves, reducing motion, steam and vacuum gauges, and speed 
indicator, gives ample opportunity for steam consumption 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 weU 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- 
em 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 DEPARTMENT. 

FIRST LIEUTENANT JOHN S. UPHAM, UNITED STATES INFANTRY, 

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 
shaU receive a course of training in Military Tactics. 

The instructor for this course is supplied by the War Depart- 

1^ 



ment and is an oflScer of the Regular Army, detailed from his Regi- 
ment or Corps for this duty. 

The value of such military training may be considered from two 
viewpoints : First, that of the United States Government ; and, sec- 
ond, 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 Gov- 
ernment in the defense of the country. 

From the viewpoint of the student, the military training makes 
for character — ''it systematically develops the body and it edu- 
cates 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 w^ord 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, «nd 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 
training which they received at College, is to them in their several 
walks of life.

Q 



INSPECTION. 

The War Department designates an officer of the Regular Army 
to make an annual inspection of the Militarj'^ Department of each 
of the institutions of learning in the United States at which an 
officer is regularly detailed. There are ahout one hundred such in- 
stitutions. This inspector rates these schools according to their 
military efficiency. The ten highest are designated as ''Distin- 
guished Institutions," and each of such institutions has the privi- 
lege 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 re- 
quired to pass only a physical examination before being commis- 
sioned. 

At the last two annual inspections the Maryland Agricultural 
College was designated a "Distinguished Institution" and there- 
fore had the privilege of naming a graduate both' of the Class of 
1910 and 1911, who received commissions as second lieutenants of 
infantrj^ on September 24, 1910, and September 29, 1911, respect- 
ively. 

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 dormitories, 
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, 

74 



Patrolling and Scouting, Marches, Target Practice, Visual Signal- 
ling, Military Engineering and Topography. 

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, Tactics, Camp Sanitation and Mili- 
tary Law. 

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 
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 practice, 
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 profi- 
ciency 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 
Class. 

Cadet officers are required to serve from the beginning of the 
scholastic year up to March 1, of that year. On this date readjust- 
ment of rank is made, based upon the following: Military Effi- 
ciency, as evidenced by the faU drills and winter recitations in the 
Tactical Department; Military Discipline and Soldierly Bearing; 
General Deportment. 

75 



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. 

• DISCIPLINE. - 

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

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

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. 

Any cadet who shall receive less than 5 demerits for any one 
month is excused from serving ordinary confinements for the suc- 
ceeding month, except in special cases. 

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

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

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

Smoking by any cadet of the Sophomore, Freshman, Sub-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 ^vithin cadet limits, or have the 

76 



same in his possession, is subject to immediate expulsion from the 
College. 

Every applicant for admission, before he is allowed to matricu- 
late, is required to give a special pledge to refrain from what is 
popularly knowii 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 in- 
stant 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 
blouse, trousers and cap, with white cross belt and w^hite waist 
belt for all military formations. By special contract with one of 
the largest Military Equipment houses in the United States, the 
uniform 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 this uniform 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 olive 
drab shirt and trousers, canvas leggins, regulation campaign hat, 
black waist belt and black tie. 



77 



The price of the summer outfit is as follows : 

2 olive drab, wool shirts at $1.50 $ 3.00 

1 campaign hat 95 

1 pair canvas leggins 85 

1 black leather belt 20 

1 black four-in-hand tie 20 

2 pairs white duck trousers at $1.25 2.50 

1 pair olive drab trousers 2.30 

Total for summer uniform $10.00 

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. 

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 uniforia. 

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 $10.00. 

White gloves, collars, caps and other military accessories 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 interest 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. 

78 



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' Insti- 
tutes, picnics, etc. During the spring and summer months it gives 
a series of open air concerts for the entertainment of the students 
and visitors.

DEPARTMENT OF ORATORY. 

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 elocution, 
and this is continued until the student has acquired a mastery of 
vocal expression, and a pleasing and forcible delivery. The student 

79 



is then required to deliver botli extempore and prepared speeches, 
covering a wide range of subjects, in this way not only securing 
practice in delivery, but also developing the power of logical 
thought. 

COURSES OFFERED. 

320. Elocution. Such instruction and practice as will enable 
the students to read correctly and intelligently. 

Preparatory Year — 1 practical period per week. 

321. Elocution. Review of work in the Preparatory Year and

DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICAL CULTURE. 

CHARLES S. RICHARDSON, DIRECTOR. 
*C. F. DONNELLY, 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 
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 spe- 
cial exercises given as will produce a symmetrical development of 
the body. While desiring to make the work in the Grymnasium of 
practical value to all the students, the required work only extends 
through the Preparatory and Sub-Freshman Years. 

COURSES OP'FERED. 

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

Preparatory Year — 3 practical periods per week. 

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

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

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

Sub-Freshman Year — 2 practical periods per week. 



PREPARATORY BEPARTMENT. 

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 advantage of a thorough grammar and high 



*Besigned. Successor to be appointed.

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 col- 
legiate course, by virtue of such a drawback, would be seriously 
impeded. It is to be remarked that as a rule the students who have 
taken this course make excellent progress in their later college 
work. Students in this Department are subject to the same mili- 
tary regulations as other students. 

For outline of courses see page 107. 



VETERINARY DEPARTMENT. 

SAMUEL S. BUCKLEY, PROFESSOR. 

This Department offers instruction in the elements of the veter- 
inary art. The course embraces the study of the external form as 
well as the internal structure and functions of the domesticated ani- 
mals. It is intended to supplement animal husbandry instruction, 
and does not have for its object the training of students for veter- 
inary 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 necessity 
for better practices in the production and care of animal products 
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 sani- 
tary laws are applicable to the individual and the home, as well as 
to animals and their stables, it is desirable that all students receive 
some instruction in this subject. It is given, therefore, early in 
the course before specialization of subjects is made. 

82 



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, 
animals and dairy products; and incidentally the storage of har- 
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 mi- 
croscopic examination, cultivation and sterilization, is made. The 
intimate relation which this subject bears to fertilization, dairying 
and plant and animal diseases makes it important in the list of 
agricultural subjects. 

Junior Year — Second Term, 2 theoretical and 4 practical per- 
iods 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, practical bac- 
teriology, nursing, administration of medicine and use of common 
medicinal substances. The aim of this course is to enable the stu- 
dent to perceive the early appearance of diseases and intelligently 
care for them under proper veterinary supervision. 

83 



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

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

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



THE OOLLEaE LIBRAEY. 

F. B. BOMBEBGER, LIBBABIAN. 

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 
always be felt throughout all courses. The present quarters of the 
Library, while adequate for its immediate needs, wiU 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 completed 
to date, or nearing completion, sets of the reports and bulletins of 
the United States Agricultural Department, the Geological Survey, 
the Fish Commission, the Smithsonian Institution, the National 
Museum, the Bureau of Ethnology, the Bureau of Education, the 
Labor Bureau, the Census Bureau and the Bureau of American 
Republics. There are also nearly completed sets of the Consular 

84 



Beports, Special Consular Reports, the Engineers' Reports of the 
United States Army, the War of the Rebellion Records and Mes- 
sages and Documents, besides many other miscellaneous publica- 
tions 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 espe- 
cially 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.

COURSES OF STUDY. 

In order to systematize the work of the different departments of 
the College, and as far as possible arrange for specialization within 
limits consistent with the normal development of 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 j^ears until the class 
work is almost wholly specialized, has been found to be most satis- 
factory. A broad and liberal foundation in English, Mathematics 
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. 

FOUK-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. 
AVith 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 technical 
enough to make the student feel that he is a specialist and equipped 
for special work. 

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 

86 



clearly 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 
Husbandry. This arrangement enables the student to specialize 
along whichever line accords with his interests or desires, while at 
the same time he is taught the fundamental facts of both. This en- 
ables him to see more clearly, and to harmonize his work to, the 
relations which must exist between these great branches of agricul- 
ture. 

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 pos- 
sible amount of instruction and assistance which is particularly ap- 
plicable 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 under- 
standing 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 suc- 
cess in practical farming, which, as it must be conducted today, is a 
union of many interests. To enter this Course a working knowl- 
edge of arithmetic, including fractions, mensuration and percent- 
age, 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 



89 



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 vvho 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 \Yill 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. 

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 with- 
in a short distance of the College and Experimental Station. Elec- 
tric cars make frequent connections. 

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 scien- 
tific instruction in the great productive occupation of horticulture. 
Practical work in orchard, garden and greenhouse is made a promi- 
nent feature of the Course, especially in its early part, which is de- 
signed to train young men in all the details of general fruit and 
truck growing. In this work the orchards, nursery and vineyard of 
the College and Experiment Station, which contain a great many 
varieties of all hardy commercial fruits, are used for practice and 
demonstration. - . ^ ^.; .. > ,^ , t-. r:i -»,

Course become grouped and specialized, and include a thesis upon 
some horticultural topic. 

The advanced work in horticulture is built on the practical work 
before outlined, but tends to the scientific side, and the training of 



n 



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, af- 
fords 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, ento- 
mology 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 108. 



BIOLOaiCAL 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 
and of the state experiment stations, as well as in the state inspec- 
tion work, for which this Course gives training. In fact, it is now 
difficult to secure men trained for such work. Full opportunity is 
given for the student to develop his natural resources and to learn 

92 



to do work on his own responsibility. A large part of his time is 
spent in both practical and theoretical biological studies without

6EKBRAL 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 satisfactory pre- 
paration 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 reg- 
ulations, 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 prac- 
tical engineer work in the field or in the drafting room with the 
assurance that he has the necessary preparation to profit by the 
experience thus afforded; or 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 1912-13 on page 97, 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- 
quired 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.

ELECTRICAL ENGIKEEBINO COUBSK 

This Course was introduced because of the great demand for 
young men who are not only well trained in the practical construc- 
tion and operation of electrical machines, but who have a thorougk 
knowledge of the principles and laws controlling the phenomena 
and forces with which they have to deal. 

The general plan of the Course is to make the student thoroughly 
acquainted with the scientific laws which are the basis of the pro- 
fession, and at the same time to train him to adapt the laws to prae- 



97 



tice, to use his own judgment, and to apply honest and accurate 
methods in all his work. 

The curricidum, as outKned, includes those studies which provide 
a broad general culture, as well as a good foundation for the engi- 

1912-13. 
Electrical Engineering Course.

The curriculum of the several years of this Course is outlined 
so as to give general culture as well as a proper foundation for the 
profession of Mechanical Engineer. 

Young men not having a natural taste for mathematics and the 
handling of tools are advised not to pursue this Course. The prac- 
tical work of this Course is most thorough. The student is familiar-

GENERAL INFORMATION. 

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION. 

For admission to classes other than the Freshman, an examina- 
tion 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 general knowledge of the principles involved. Exami- 
nations for 1912-13 will be held at the CoUege on Tuesday, Sep- 
tember 17th, and Wednesday, September 18th. Morning sessions 
will begin at 9.30; afternoon sessions, at 1.00 o'clock. 

Candidates for admission to the Freshman Class who have not a 
diploma from an approved institution, will be offered examinations 
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 ^gid 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 geo- 
graphy. 

Applicants who desire assignment to classes more advanced than 
the Freshman must be prepared to take an examination equivalent 
to that given at the College for promotion to the class they desire 
to enter. Experience has proved that it is almost impossible for a 
new student to succeed in the work of the Mechanical Course as a 
Sophomore ; and such assignment will be made only upon the can- 
didate 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 student 
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 
satisfactory progress at this CoUege on their part cannot be ex- 

109 



pected until they have familiarized themselves partly, at least, with 
the English language. . , - ■ . 

EXAMINATIONS AND PROMOTIONS. 

In order to pass from one class to the next higher a student is 
required to pass an examination in each study pursued, by a mark 
of at least sixtj' 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 militarj^ promotions see Military Department. 

REPORTS. 

Detailed reports are sent to parents and guardians at the end of 
every quarter. These give the grade of the student in every branch 
of study, his attendance record, and his conduct record v/ith com- 
ment 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. 



GRADUATION AND DEGREES. 

Degrees are granted by the Board of Trustees upon the recom- 
mendation of the Faculty.

shall be made by competitive examination and the candidate who 
proves best qualified by such examination shall be selected for this 
scholarship. 

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

STUDENT OPPOETTJNITIES. 

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 con- 
tinue their work, and whose course is marked by an earnest desire 
to succeed, are always given the perferenee. 



FACILITIES FOR RELICHOUS WORSHIP. 

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 Eiverdale, one mile south, 
are Presbyterian churches. In Hyattsville, two miles south, may be 
found Catholic, Episcopal, Presbyterian, Baptist and Methodist 
churches. In the city of Washington are churches of all denomi- 
nations, 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. 

115 



OOUJiaE REGULATIONS. 

The attention of parents is earnestly called to the following rules 
in force at this College: The College authorities can succeed in 
conferring the maximum amount of training upon the student only 
with and by the active support and earnest co-operation of the par- 
ent. The President of the College is always ready and willing to 
discuss any failures in a student's record with his parent or guar- 
dian, 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 signed 
by parent or guardian, and received by the President of the Col- 
lege. 

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 he necessary 
either for the interest of the young man or the institution which he 
attends. It is further understood that a parent or guardian can 
at any time withdraw his son or ward, suhject to regulations herein 
set forth. 

A cadet manifesting indifference to the observance of the rules 
and regulations of the institution, or wanting in proper attention 
to the preparation of his work, will be cautioned to improve. Fail- 
ing 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 matricu- 
late. Parents should impress upon their sons that failure to live 
up to this pledge is a dishonor which unfits them to be longer stu- 
dents of the College. '^Hazing" is invariably punished hy instant 
dismissal. 

Frequent absences from the College are invariably of great dis- 
advantage to the student, in breaking in upon the continuity of his 
work and in distracting his mind from the main purpose of his at- 
tendance at the institution. Parents are therefore earnestly asked 
to refrain from granting frequent requests to leave the College.

"with and by the active support and earnest co-operation of the par- 
ent. The President of the College is always ready and willing to 
discuss any failures in a student's record with his parent or guar- 
dian, 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 signed 
by parent or guardian, and received by the President of the Col- 
lege. 

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 he necessary 
either for the interest of the young man or the institution which he 
attends. It is further understood that a parent or guardian can 
at any time withdraw his son or ward, suiject to regulations herein 
set forth. 

A cadet manifesting indifference to the observance of the rules 
and regulations of the institution, or wanting in proper attention 
to the preparation of his work, will be cautioned to improve. Fail- 
ing 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 matricu- 
late. Parents should impress upon their sons that failure to live 
up to this pledge is a dishonor which unfits them to be longer stu- 
dents of the College. ''Hazing" is invariably punished by instant 
dismissal. 

Frequent absences from the College are invariably of great dis- 
advantage to the student, in breaking in upon the continuity of his 
work and in distracting his mind from the main purpose of his at- 
tendance at the institution. Parents are therefore earnestly asked 
to refrain from granting frequent requests to leave the College. 



116 



Students will not be permitted to leave classes or quarters dur- 
ing study hours to answer telephone calls, unless they are urgent. 

Students will not be permitted to make contracts or to sell any 
article to their associates without the approval of the President. 

The sale of second hand furniture or clothing to new cadets is 
prohibited unless the sale be approved by the Commandant of Ca- 
dets. 

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 re- 
ceipt therefor.

UNIFORM. 

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 Equip- 

119 



meut Houses in the United States. This uniform is furnished 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 

Fatigue cap 1.60 

White waist belt with plate 50 

White cross belt and equipment 50 

Total $16.00 

Measures for this uniform 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 drab 
shirt and trousers, canvas leggius, regulation campaign hat, black 
leather waist belt and black tie. 

The cost of the summer outfit is: 

2 olive drab, wool shirts at $1.50 $ 3.00 

1 campaign hat 95 

1 pair canvas leggins 85 

1 black leather belt 20 

1 black four-in-hand tie 20 

2 pair of white duck trousers at $1.25 2.50 

1 pair olive drab trousers 2.30 

Total for summer uniform $10.00 

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 
uniform and is a warm and durable garment which will last for 

120 



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 vfith. the uniform. The cost is $19.75. 

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

ARTICLES NECESSARY TO BE PROVIDED. 

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

1 dozen white standing collars. 

6 pairs white gloves (uniform). 

6 pairs white cuffs. 

1 pair blankets (for single bed). 

2 pairs sheets (for single bed). 
4 pillow cases. 

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

1 mattress (uniform). 

2 clothes bags (uniform). 
1 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. 



ACKNOWLEDaMEirrS. 

MEDALS. — The authorities of the Institution take this oppor- 
tunity to express their appreciation of the courtesy of their friends 
in establishing the following, for competition: 

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

121 



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's county making the highest average in studies, offered by 
his sister, Mrs. Annie J^. Goddard James, o| Washington, D. C. 



STUDiarr 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 discip- 
line and tends to raise the standard of student honor. 

YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. 

President, M. W. McBride. -"-'"' 
Vice-President, F. E. Anderson. 
Secretary Treasurer, E. V. Benson. 

Much encouraging work has been done by this organization dur- 
ing the past year, and gratifying interest has been shown in the 
meetings. ,,., ^ 

. LITERARY SOCIETIES. 

These societies are invaluable adjuncts to college work. Through 
them a knowledge of parliamentary law is gained, as well as a readi- 
ness of expression and activity in thought, qualities particularly 
valuable to the American citizen. 

The literary society work is under the general supervision of the 
Professor of Oratory, who is always ready to advise with the mem- 
bers in matters of parliamentary law and train them in the de- 
livery of their orations and debates. 

NEW MERCER SOCIETY.

ROSSBOURG CLUB. 
The social man is a necessity — hence this organization is encour- 
aged and supported by the President and Faculty. The entertain- 
ments have been marked by a spirit which emphasizes the wisdom 
of its organization and justifies its encouragement. 
President, E. R. Burrier. 
Vice-President, V. F. Roby. 
Secretary-Treasury, N. L. Clark. 

REVEILLE. 



The "Reveille" is the College annual, edited entirely by the 
Senior Class. Fifteen editions of the ''Reveille" have appeared, 
and each has been characterized by a gratifying improvement in 
the standard both of originality and expression.

STUDENT ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION. 

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

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

OFFICERS. 

President, R. L. Tolson. 
Secretary, W. S. Grace. 

ATHLETIC COUNCIL. 

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

THE ORATORICAL ASSOCIATION OF MARYLAND 

COLLEGES. 

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



124 



THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION. 

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

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

The entire institution as viewed from the Alumni standpoint is 
worthy of the confidence of its patrons and the public. Each of us 
should feel that every step in advance of that achieved in our day, 
should give us a feeling of pride, that it is in a manner the result of 
the successful completion of the work then offered, and should bind 
us more closely to the work of the present and 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 most progressive step. The Alumni 
page, through its editor, Mr. E. N. Cory, '09, has been most inter- 
esting and instructive. 

The officers for the year are : President, J. B. Gray, '75 ; Vice- 
President, S. H. Harding, '95 ,- Secretary-Treasurer, T. B. Symons, 
'02 ; Executive Committee, members at large, R. H. Dixon, '06 ; R. 
L. MitcheU, '02. 

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