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: 

"Wheeeas, It has been represented to the Legislature, that certain 
wise and virtuous citizens are desirous of instituting and establishing 
in some convenient locality within this State, an Agricultural College 
and Model Farm, in which the youthful student may especially be 
instructed in those arts and sciences indispensable to successful 
agricultural pursuits; and 

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

Whereas, It is the province and duty of the Legislature to encour- 
age and aid the philanthropic citizens in their efforts to disseminate 
useful knowledge by establishing an Agricultural College and Model 
Farm, which shall, in addition to the usual course of scholastic 
training, particularly indoctrinate the youth of Maryland, theoretically 
and practically, 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. 

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 char- 
acter existed in the United States. Under the charter thus granted 
to a party of public- spirited individuals, the original College build- 
ing 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 



15 

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 "endowment, support and maintenance of at 
least one college where the leading object shall be, without excluding 
other scientific and classical studies, and including military tactics, to 
teach such branches of learning as are related to agriculture and the 
mechanic arts, in such manner as the legislatures of the States may 
respectively prescribe, in order to promote the liberal and practical 
education of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and profes- 
sions in 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 Chemistry (Fertilizer, Feed and Agricultural Lime Control), 
Horticulture, Entomology and Vegetable Pathology. As a conse- 
quence of its development under such favorable auspices the in- 
stitution has become the most important factor in the agricultural 
and industrial development of the State. 

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. & O. R. R., eight miles from Washington, and thirty-two miles 
from Baltimore. At least nine trains a day from each city stop at 
College Station, thus making the place easily accessible from all 
parts of the State. Hyattsville is the telegraph station. Telephone 
connection is made with the Chesapeake and Potomac lines. 



l6 -;: 

The College grounds front on the Baltimore and Washington 
Boulevard. The suburban town of Hyattsville is two miles to the 
south, and Laurel, the largest town in the county, is ten 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 College 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 excellent. 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 FIRE. 

The original College building completed in 1859 and the ad- 
ministration building completed in 1904 and connected with the 
former by a covered bridge, were completely destroyed by fire 
on the night of November 29, 1912. These buildings contained 
living rooms for the students, assembly hall, drill hall, executive 
offices and two recitation rooms. The insurance on these build- 
ings, about $125,000, is available for rebuilding, which will be 
commenced at an early date. 

A temporary assembly hall, kitchen and dining halls have been 
eriected and are now ready for use. Living rooms for a part of 
the students are available in several houses on the College farm.

The fire did not touch any of the laboratories, shops or green- 
houses, and but two recitation rooms, so that the faciUties for in- 
struction are unimpaired. 

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

The Departments of Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineer- 
ing and the Department of Physics are located in the two-story 
brick building erected in 1896, the brick annex erected in 1904, 
and the brick addition constructed in 1909. This latter, which con- 
sists of a main building four stories in height and a wing three 
stories in height, is so arranged as to form with the buildings pre- 
viously erected a concrete whole. In this group of buildings are 
found laboratories of various kinds, wood and machine shops, a 
forge room and foundry, drawing rooms, blue print rooms, instru- 
ment rooms, lecture rooms, offices, a library room, lavatories, etc. 
The equipment is modern in every respect and the facilities for 
work in the above named departments are greatly increased. 

The chemical building was completed in 1897, and is now thor- 
oughly equipped. It contains several lecture rooms sfnd labora- 
tories for practical work and the analysis of fertilizers, feeding 
materials for domestic animals, and agricultural lime. This work 
is assigned by Acts of the General Assembly to the Professor of 
Qiemistry 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 modem hospital facilities. This building is being used, tem- 
porarily, as the Administration Building,

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 
institution, in part supported by the State, in part by the Federal 
Government, through its several endowment Acts, and that it is in 
no sense a money-making institution, but simply a medium of dis- 
bursement by the Government to those upon whom the safety and 
prosperity of the State so largely depend. 

While the College provides, as will hereafter be explained, sev- 
eral distinct courses of instruction, looking to the special training 
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 



19 

a systematic and carefully adjusted scheme of work, differing but 
little in the several courses, and looking to his general development 
in mental strength, range of information and power of expression 
and thought. At the beginning of his second, or Sophomore, year 
the differentiation may be said to begin along those lines in which 
he shows most natural aptitude. This gradual specialization con- 
tinues during his third, or Junior, year, until in his last, or Senior, 
year, his work consists chiefly of a few closely connected topics, in 
which he is thus able thoroughly to prepare himself. With the 
present equipment of the laboratories and work-shops a student is 
able to become so proficient in his chosen line of work that when 
he leaves the College a successful career is open to him if he chooses 
to avail himself of it. 

The Agricultural College, is logically, the crowning point of 
the public school system of Maryland. Its aim in particular is to 
provide a higher education for the graduates of the county schools. 
To this end its curriculum is adjusted to meet the preparation of 
such students. It is this class of young men that the College is 
especially desirous of reaching. Experience has shown that our 
most satisfactory students come as graduates from the county 
schools, and no efforts will be spared to make the transition from 
the high school or grammar school to the College a possible one 
for all those actuated by an earnest desire to complete their edu- 
cation.

professor TALIAFERRO. 

MR. BESLEY. 

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR RUFFNER. 

MR. KINZY. 



The Agricultural Department offers three courses: 

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



21 

II. A tv/o-year course, for proficiency in which a certificate is 
awarded. 

III. Short winter courses. An outline of these courses is given 
on page ii8. 

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 : 



22 

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- 
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, i theoretical and 4 practical 
periods per week. 

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

3. Soils. The study of the physical and chemical conditions of 
the soil in their relation to profitable agriculture. The soil is the 
basis of all agriculture, and a knowledge of its properties and func- 



23 

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

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

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

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



24 

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.

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. •. :

DIVISION OF ANIMAL HUSBANDRY. 

The Division of Animal Husbandry stands for all lines of work 
which pertain to the judging, selecting, breeding, feeding, devel- 
opment, care and management of the various breeds and classes of 



26 

domesticated animals. Good herds of stock are being established at 
the Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station which are of use 
to the student in his studies. In addition to the supply of stock 
on the farm the proximity of the College to Washington and Balti- 
more makes it possible for the student to get excellent material for 
study. The Heurich dairy farm, close by, furnishes an 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. 

New dairy barns are erected at the Experiment Station. These 
are models of sanitation. A well lighted and heated pavilion for 
judging live stock is a recent addition to the equipment. 

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.

Term, 4 theoretical and 4 practical periods per week. 



29 
DIVISION OF FORESTRY. 

The instruction in Forestry is planned to give to the student, who 
is fitting himself to take up the practical problems of farm manage 
ment, a sufficient 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 degree of intelligent direction 
which he is prepared to give to the tilled lands and thus obtain 
equally satisfactory results. 

The following course is offered: 

40. 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. 



BOTANY AND VEGETABLE PATHOLOGY. 

PROFESSOR NORTON. ' 

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR SMITH. 

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 
consists of a reference library containing the principal botanical 



30 

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 of the Experiment Sta- 
tion, and, if competent, to assist in the same. Special attention is 
given to students who wish practice in the treatment of plant dis- 
eases, 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 gives the student an idea of the 
following courses in botany, and is to aid him in deciding later in 
what studies he wishes to specialize.

31 

sideration of the functions of the different plant organs, a more 
complete course in plant physiology (66) being given later. 

There is also field work, with the manual on the native flora, 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 plants 
from some part of the State.

CHEMISTRY. 

PROFESSOR MCDONNELL. 
ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR RROUGHTON. 

This Department is charged with two distinct classes of work, 
(i) The State fertilizer, food and lime inspection, and (2) the in- 
struction of students. The State work necessitates the publication 
of the "Quarterly" bulletin, which is usually made up of the results 
of the analysis of fertilizers, feeding stuffs, or agricultural lime, and 
is sent free of charge to all Maryland farmers who apply. Students 
do no part of the State work, the assistants being 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, feed 
and lime 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, lock- 
ers, 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- 
tions, and two to four periods to practical work in the laboratory 
by the student, under the supervision of the instructor. In this way 



35 

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 Sophomore Year, 
Third Term, if the Course in Chemistry is selected, and the larger 
part of the student's time is devoted to some branch of theoretical 
or practical chemistry during the rest of his course, as outlined 
elsewhere. 

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

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND PHYSICS. 

PROFESSOR CREESE. 
MR, CLARK. 

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING. 

The work of the Electrical Engineering Course is so arranged as 
to give the student a thorough understanding of the fundamental 
principles of the various branches of electrical engineering, and at 
the same time to teach him to apply these principles to the 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 rooms 
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 eflFort 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 Northrop potentiometer and Weston standard volt- 
meter and ammeter for calibrating the various portable measuring 
instruments used in the laboratory. A Queen & Co. standard 
photometer, for measuring the distribution of light from incan- 
descent lamps, with all the necessary instruments and adjustments, 
including a Lummer-Brodhun photometer screen and carriage 
and a universal rotating socket for the test lamp. A large number 
of portable ammeters, voltmeters, and indicating wattmeters for 
direct and alternating current measurements; standard curve draw- 
ing voltmeter and ammeter; electrostatic voltmeter; frequency 
meters ; silver and copper voltameters ; Siemen's type electrody- 
namometer; watthourmeters, both direct and alternating current. 
A Leeds and Northrop standard portable testing set; heating de- 
vices ; condensers ; multiple circuit ammeter and voltmeter switches ; 
tachometers. The above instruments were obtained from the Gen- 
eral Electric Co., Queen & Co., Siemens and Halske, Westinghouse 
Electric and Manufacturing Co., and the Weston Electrical Instru- 
ment Co. In addition there are D'Arsonval galvanometers, both 
ballistic and light movement, furnished with lamp and scale; stand- 
ard resistance boxes and bridges, including a very accurate decade 
resistance box and a decade resistance and Wheatstone Bridge; 
double and single contact keys, commutative keys, condenser keys, 
etc. 

The lamps used for experimental purposes include direct and 
alternating current multiple carbon arc, magnetite arc, mercury and 
nernst lamps. 

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 synchronous motor and as an alternating current 



45

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,

matic overload and no voltage release; field rheostats. The above 
apparatus was made by the General Electric Co., the Westinghouse 
Electric & Manufacturing Co., the Crocker- Wheeler Co., Western 
Electric Co., and Reliance Electric and Engineering Co. 

The main switchboards, consisting of two blue Vermont marble 
panels on pipe supports, are 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 wattmeter switchboards have 
been constructed for use in machine tests. In addition to the spe- 
cial electrical engineering equipment, the College lighting plant 



4^ 

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, and various types of 
rheostats. 

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

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 keys, operator's telephone 
set, magneto generator, etc. On one line circuit is connected a wall

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

The proper arrangement, the type 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 materials needed for the various system of distribution are 
given. These problems require for their solution a knowledge of 
the rules of the Underwriters' Association."

;:t ENGLISH AND CIVICS. 

PROFESSOR BOMBERGER. 

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR RICHARDSON. 
MR. BYRD. 

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, psycholog>^ 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- 



53 

ence to current, social and industrial problems, and, finally, lec- 
tures on the elements of business and international law.

HORTICULTURE. 

PROFESSOR SYMONS. 

PROFESSOR BECKENSTRATER. 

PROFESSOR MONROE. 

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR ANSPON. 

MR. BURRELL, 

Recognizing the great importance of every phase of this subject 
in the State, a SCHOOL OF HORTICULTURE has been formed 
in conjunction with the State Horticultural Department during the 
past year, with a view of offering instruction to students desiring 
to specialize in either Pomology, Vegetable Culture or Landscape 
Gardening and Floriculture. The courses in this subject have been 
therefore revised, providing for general courses in all phases of 
Horticulture during the Freshman and Sophomore years and per- 
mitting them to specialize in either of the above subjects in the 
Junior and Senior years. 

The arrangement of the courses is, of necessity, subject to such 
adjustment as will advance the best interests of the students. The 
object in each course will be to give practical and theoretical train- 
ing in fruit growing, truck farming and commercial landscape gar- 
dening and floriculture. Under the present arrangement the spec- 
ialists in each subject will have greater opportunity to keep familiar 
with the progress of their work through the practical demonstra- 
tion and experimental work in the State- Where one man has been 
required to give ail the instruction in horticulture heretofore, four 
men are now available to give a part of their time to this important 
work. 

The students will be required to do practical work throughout 
the course, and in addition, they must have spent at least two sum- 
mers or the equivalent, during the four years' course, in an ap- 
proved commercial establishment dealing v/ith the subject in which 
they are specializing. The equipment of each Department is being 
steadily increased and the orchards, gardens and greenhouses of 
College and Experiment Station afford unlimited opportunities for 
practical observation. In addition, the students of each course will 



62 

be expected to take trips to selected commercial orchards, truck 
farms, greenhouses and markets. 

The SCHOOL OF HORTICULTURE offers two regular 
courses: (a) A four-year course leading to the degree of Bachelor 
of Science; (b) a two-year course for proficiency in which a Cer- 
tificate is awarded. 

The work given in the two-year course will also be more efii- 
cient, as for the most part the courses will be given separately from 
those of the regular four-year students. These students will also 
have an opportunity to specialize in any phase of horticulture in 
which they are interested during their second year.

LANGUAGES. 

PROFESSOR SPENCE. 



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- 
telligently the works of French and German masters in the domain 
of science, for, frequently there are no English versions of their 
works. As the student becomes more familiar with foreign scien- 
tific terms and construction, he is required to translate treatises 
bearing upon the special line of work which he may be pursuing.

MATHEMATICS. 

professor HARRISON. 
MR. MCKAY. 

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 



71 

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. 

No matter what vocation a man intends to follow, a knowledge 
of business forms and methods of systematic accounts is a requisite 
to success. To be able to use an ordinary compass or transit for 
the purpose of laying out, dividing and calculating the area of 
land, or running out lines and leveling for the purpose of drainage, 
is a necessary accomplishment for every intelligent farmer.

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING. 

PROFESSOR GWINNER. 

ASSSOCIATE PROFESSOR CRISP. 

MR. WARTHEN. 

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 no. 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 128. 

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 lo-foot pattern maker's lathe, a grindstone, wood trimmer, 26- 
inch wood planer and universal tool grinder. 

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. 



76 

The machine shop equipment consists of one lo-inch speed lathe, 
one 22-inch engine-lathe with compound rest, one 12-inch combined 
foot and power lathe, two 14-inch engine-lathes, one 24-inch drill 
press, one No. 4 emery tool grinder, one No. iYq 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 making 
tensile, compression, shearing and transverse tests on various kinds 
of materials, turbo generator set, consisting of a Curtis steam tur- 
bine and thirty-five K. W. General Electric compound wound gen- 
erator 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 with 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 well equipped for practical work. 
Two of these are used by the Junior and Senior Classes, each stu- 
dent being provided with a separate desk. The third room is used 
jointly by the Freshman and Sophomore students and contains 
eleven drawing tables, accommodating about sixty students. 

The combined blue print and dark room with its commodious 



' 71 

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 
lO acquaint themselves practically with what is being done in mod- 
ern engineering construction. 

During the past session, the Senior Mechanical Engineering 
Class has visited the Disston Saw Works, Philadelphia; Baldwin 
Locomotive Works, Philadelphia; University of Pennsylvania, 
Philadelphia ; Midvale Steel Plant, Nicetown, Pa. ; and the New 
York Ship Building Co., Camden, N. J. ; anl 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.

MILITARY SCIENCE. 

major dapray. 

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



82 

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

The instructor for this course is supplied by the War Depart- 
ment and is an officer 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 word and act, of truth telling, of integrity and 
fidelity to trust, of simplicity of life and of courage." 

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

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

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



«3 

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. 

INSPECTION. 

The War Department designates an officer of the Regular Army 
to make an annual inspection of the Military Department of each 
of the institutions of learning in the United States at which an 
officer is regfularly detailed. There are about 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 two annual inspections the Maryland Agricultural College 
was designated a "Distinguished Institution" and therefore had the 
privilege of naming a graduate both of the Class of 1910 and 1911, 
who received commissions as second lieutenants of infantry on Sep- 
tember 24, 1 910, and September 29, 191 1, respectively. 

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. 



84 

INSTRUCTION. 

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



85 

ciency in academic work are also given weight in making such se- 
lection. 

Commissioned officers are selected from the Senior Class, ser- 
o-eants 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 i, of that year. On this date readjust- 
ment of rank is made, based upon the following: Military Effi- 
ciency, as evidenced by the fall drills and winter recitations in the 
Tactical Department; Military Discipline and Soldierly Bearing; 
General Deportment- 

Recommendation for promotion will be based upon the standing 
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- 
mandant 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 



86 

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 following 
term. 

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

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

Any cadet who shall drink any spirituous or intoxicating liquor, 
or cause the same to be brought within cadet limits, or have the 
same in his possession, is subject to immediate 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 known as "hazing." Parents should impress upon their 
sons that failure to live up to this pledge is a dishonor which unfits 
them to be students of this College. "Hazing" is punished by 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 white 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 ar- 
rives 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. 

The price of the summer outfit is as follows: 

2 olive drab, wool shirts at $1.50 $ 3.00 

I campaign hat 95 

I pair canvas leggins. 85 

I black leather belt 20 

1 black four-in-hand tie 20 

2 pairs white duck trousers at $1.25 2-50 

I 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 uniform- 

The full dress coat worn by a majority of the cadets of the bat- 
talion for all social functions, etc., is of the regulation West Point 
pattern. The dresscoat is optional. The cost is $10.00. 

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, ps 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. 

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 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.

ORATORY. 

PROFESSOR RICHARDSON. 

The object of this Department is to give a thorough training in 
public speaking. The work is begun with easy lessons in elocution, 
and this is continued until the student has acquired a mastery of 
vocal expression, and a pleasing and forcible delivery. The student 
is then required to deliver both extempore and prepared speeches, 
covering a wide range of subjects, in this way not only securing 
practice in delivery, but also developing the power of logical 
thought. 

COURSES OFFERED, 

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

Preparatory Year— 2 practical periods per week, 

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

PHYSICAL CULTURE. 

DIRECTOR RICHARDSON. 
MR. BYRD. 

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 oi 
the body. While desiring to make the work in the Gymnasium of 
practical value to all the students, the required work only extends 
through the Preparatory and Sub-Freshman Years. 



91 

COURSES OFFERED. 

*440. Gymnasium Work. Scientific body building, with light 
gymnastics.

gymnastic work. 
Sub-Freshman Year — 2 practical periods per week. 



SUB-COLLEGIATE INSTRUCTION. 

PROFESSOR HARRISON. 
PROFESSOR RICHARDSON. 

This Department was established in 1892, and reorganized in 
1913; and is designed to meet the requirements of those students 
who have not had the advantage of a thorough grammar and high 
school training, with a view to equipping them to enter the regular 
collegiate department. 

Only such students are desired as will be able to enter the Fresh- 
man Class within two years, and who are fifteen years of age. This 
course is recommended especially to students who have not been 
to school for several years; for their progress in the regular 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 117. 



*Thi3 work, temporarily discontinued on account of unusual conditions, will 
»* resumed as soon as conditions permit. 



92 

VETERINARY SCIENCE. 

PROFESSOR BUCKLEY. 

This Department offers instruction in the elements of veterinary 
science. 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 of health in 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. 

460. 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. 

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

461. Farm Buildings. This course has for its object the de- 
velopment of proper ideas in the construction and arrangement of 
buildings for the housing of stock; the storage of food materials, 
animal and dairy products; and incidentally the storage of har- 
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. 



93 

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

462. 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. 

463. 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 periods 
per week. 

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

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

465. Bacteriology. A brief course in dairy bacteriology is of- 
fered the students attending the two-year Courses in Agriculture and 
Horticulture, 

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

466. 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. 

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

467- 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. 



94 . 

THE COLLEGE LIBRARY. 

DR. SILVESTER. 

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, will necessarily 
be too limited in the course of time. The reading room is well ar- 
ranged and lighted, and is in all respects comfortable and conven- 
ient. 

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

The works in the Library are classified according to the modern 
Dewey Decimal System of classification. As rapidly as possible 
the sets of Government Reports that are most valuable are being 
completed and catalogued. At present there are on hand 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 
Reports, 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. 



95 

Grateful acknowledgment 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. 



96 

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, (subdivided into Agronomy and 
Animal Husbandry), Horticulture, Biology, Chemistry, General, 
Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engi- 
neering. 

A continuous and progressive course of work, beginning in the 
Freshman Year, with a nearly uniform course for all students, and 
gradually separating in the three succeeding years until the class 
work is almost wholly specialized, has been found to be most 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. 

FOUR- YEAR COURSE IN AGRICULTURE. 

The four-year Agricultural Course is designed to fit the student 
for conducting practical operations on the farm, or, should taste 
or circumstances so direct, to prosecute successfully advanced 
scientific research along the lines of agronomy or animal husbandry. 
With this end in view, the course has been made at once compre- 
hensive and technical, comprehensive enough to include whatever 
is necessary for the complete development of the work, yet technical 
enough to make the student feel that he is a specialist and equipped 
for special work. 



97 

This Course is the result of development. While a man must 
specialize to attain any eminent success, yet in agricultural science 
it is not possible to specialize to the same degree as in some others, 
because it is itself made up of many sciences. Experience has 
clearly shown also that in agriculture the 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- 



98 

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

one to three weeks and being occupied entirely with one subject. 
At the same time, the work has been amplified and enlarged by the 
addition of a short course in Poultry Husbandry and one in Domes- 



100 , 

lie Science. The advantages of this method appear to be several. 
If the student wishes to take all the courses he can do so without 
greater outlay of time or money than formerly, when several sub- 
jects were taken up concurrently. 

If on the other hand, there be any one who feels the need of in- 
struction in a part of the work only, or if for any reason he cannot 
arrange to spend ten weeks away from home, he may select from the 
subjects offered the one or ones which specially appeal to him and 
attend the College only during the time when those subjects are 
being taught. 

The Domestic Science course is intended specially for women and 
runs concurrently with the Farm Crops course. With this excep- 
tion, these short courses follow each other in regular order. While 
the specialist may take one or more, or even a part of one, as he 
sees fit, the entire work has been laid out in logical sequence and 
the man interested in general farming and unable to take a course 
of four or two years, will find great advantages in taking all of 
these short courses as they come. 

The arrangement of the courses for 19 14, beginning after the 
Christmas holidays, will be: 

Soils and Fertilizers, one week. 
Domestic Science, one week. 
Farm Crops, one week. 
Poultry Husbandry, one week. 
Horticulture, two weeks. 
Animal Husbandry, three weeks. 
Farm Machinery and Farm Engines, one week. 
Farm Carpentry and Blacksmithing, one week. 
No charge is made to short course students for tuition or use of 
laboratories. Good board at moderate rates can be secured in the 
neighboring villages of Berwyn, College Park, Riverdale and 
Hyattsville, all within a short distance of the College and Experi- 
ment Station. 

Electric cars make frequent connection. 

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

HORTICULTURAL COURSES. 

FOUR-YEAR COURSE IN HORTICULTURE. 

Through the organization of the School of Horticulture an op- 
portunity is presented for students in the four-year courses to spec- 
ialize in either Pomology, Vegetable Culture or Landscape Garden- 
ing and Floriculture. 

These courses are designed to fit the student for conducting prac- 
tical operations in horticulture on the farm, or to continue scientific 
research work and teaching in his chosen field. Practical work is 
made a prominent feature of the course. In the Freshman and 
Sophomore Years the work is not materially different from that 
of the Agricultural and Biological Courses, as all students are re- 
quired to take certain fundamental subjects. In the Junior and 
Senior Years the courses become specialized. 

The College and Experiment Station Farm, orchards, green- 
houses, etc., together with the close proximity of the Institution to 
the United States Department of Agriculture Greenhouses and Ex- 
periment Farms, offer unusual opportunities to the students in hor- 
ticulture. 

TWO-YEAR COURSE IN HORTICULTURE. 

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

The course is so arranged that the students will be given the 
fundamental work in horticulture and agriculture and they can 
also specialize in their second year to some extent along the line 
of horticulture in which they are particularly interested. Courses 
in English, Botany, Entomology and Chemistry are included in 
their work. 



I02 



Upon the completion of the two years' work satisfactorily, the 
students are given a certificate.

TWO WEEKS COURSE IN HORTICULTURE. 



A two weeks' short course in horticulture is offered each winter 
to those who are unable to spend a longer time -at the College. The 
course is designed for practical men who can leave home for short 
periods during the winter. It consists of lectures on all phases of 
horticulture and practical demonstrations in spraying, packing, 
pruning, etc. 



BIOLOGICAL COURSE. 

The Biological Course, while offering a general education and 
special training in the natural sciences, is outlined in particular for 
those who wish to specialize in some branch of botany or zoology. 
It aims to fit men for practical work in the field of plant pathology 
and entomology, but will also give training for special work in the 
pure sciences. 

There are many opportunities for scientific workers in connec- 
tion with the agricultural investigations of the Federal Government 
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 
to do work on his own responsibility. A large part of his time is 
spent in both practical and theoretical biological studies without 
neglecting the cultural studies which are a necessary foundation 
for every specialist. Upon completion of the four years' work the 
degree of Bachelor of Science is conferred.

CHEMICAL COURSE. 

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






' ; 105 

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

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

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 engineering work in the field or in the drafting room with the 
assurance that he has the necessary preparation to profit by the 
experience thus afforded; or 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, as outlined, in- 
cludes not only studies having culture value, but the sciences which 
form the basis of engineering. Students who have found themselves 
deficient in ability to learn mathematics are not advised to enter 
an engineering course. Upon the satisfactory completion of this 
Course the degree of Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, is 
conferred. 

A thesis dealing with some problem in engineering will be 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 ENGINEERING COURSE. 

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



r

The curriculum, as outlined, includes those studies which provide 
broad general culture, as well as a good foundation for the engi- 
neering work which follows. From the beginning of the Second

*Alternative, 

tical work of this Course is most thorough. The student is familiar- 
ized from the first with the reading of engineering drawings and 
with the use of tools and implements used in wood and iron work. 
He is given daily practice in the shops and is encouraged to develop 
whatever inventive talent he may have. Results have shown that 
students completing this Course have no difi&culty in securing em- 
ployment immediately upon graduation in the field of mechanics or 
mechanical engineering.

GENERAL INFORMATION. 

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION TO THE COLLEGE. 

A candidate for admission to the College must present, together 
with his Scholastic Record, a certificate of good moral character; 
and if the candidate be from another school or college, the certifi- 
cate must show that he left such institution in good standing. 

METHODS OF ADMISSION. 

There are two methods of gaining admission to the Freshman 
Class : 

(i.) By Certificate. — The College will accept certificates from 
approved high schools of Maryland and the District of Columbia, 
and from accredited academies and preparatory schools of this 
State and of other States. 

The certificates presented by the candidate must be officially 
certified by the principal of the school attended. It must state in 
detail the work completed by the candidate and, if the candidate 
be from a Maryland high school, the certificate should state that 
the candidate has completed, at least, the tenth year of the course 
of study as outlined for Maryland schools by the State Board of 
Education. 

All admissions by certificates are regarded as merely provisional. 
That is, while a student presenting a proper certificate is admitted 
to such standing as it shows him entitled to, he may be required 
to take a special examination or to do special work in any subject 
in which his preparation proves to be unsatisfactory; or if, after a 
fair trial, he fails to maintain a standing in the class to which he 
was admitted, he may be dropped to a lower class. 

Blank certificates conveniently arranged for the desired data, 
will be sent to all principals and, upon application, to prospective 
students. 

(2.) By Examination. — Candidates not admitted by certificate 
will be required to stand written examinations upon the entrance 
subjects. These examinations will be held for 1913 on June nth 
and I2th, and September i6th and 17th. 

Requirements for admission to the Freshman Class for the ses- 
sion of 1913-14 will be as follows: 



I20 



Number of Units Required. — For the present, thirteen (13) 
units are required for entrance. This is equivalent to the comple- 
tion of, at least, the tenth grade of the course of study as out- 
lined for Maryland schools by the State Board of Education. A 
unit designates not less than four or five "periods" of classroom 
work or eight or ten "periods" of laboratory work per week, con- 
tinued throughout the school year, each "period" being not less 
than forty minutes. 

DISTRIBUTION OF THE REQUIRED UNITS. 

Of the thirteen (13) units required for admission to the Fresh- 
man Class, eleven and one-half (11%) are specified as follows:

The additional one and one-half (1V2) units may be oflFered 
from Groups II, III, IV or V. 

Deficiencies. — A deficiency of two units will be allowed a candi- 
date as conditions, but such conditions must be removed by the 
end of the Scholastic Year in which the candidate is admitted. 

SUGGESTIONS FOR PREPARATION IN THE REQUIRED SUBJECTS. 

GROUP I. 

English. — Preparation in English has two main objects: (i), 
command of correct and clear English, spoken and written; (2), 
power to read with intelligence and appreciation. 



121 

To secure the first end, training in grammar and the simple 
principles of rhetoric and the writing of frequent compositions 
are essential. The candidate must be able to spell, capitalize and 
punctuate correctly. He must show a practical knowledge of the 
essentials of English grammar, including ordinary grammatical 
terminology, inflection, syntax, the use of phrases and clauses; a 
thorough training in the construction of the sentence; and famil- 
iarity with the simpler principles of paragraph division and struc- 
ture. 

To secure the second end the candidate is required to read the 
works named below under A and B. The list is intended to give 
the candidate the opportunity of reading, under intelligent direc- 
tion, a number of important pieces of literature. 

English A. For reading and practice. (One and one-half 
units.) The candidate should read the works prescribed below with 
a view to understanding and enjoying them. He will be expected 
to show a reasonable degree of familiarity with their substance. 
The form of examination will usually be the writing of a para- 
graph or two on each of several topics, to be chosen by the candi- 
date from a considerable number set before him in the examina- 
tion paper.

In order to pass from one class to the next higher a student is 
required to pass an examination in each study pursued, by a mark 
of at least sixty per cent., and to have a combined mark in each 
branch (daily and examination) of at least seventy per cent.

REPORTS. 

Detailed reports are sent to parents and guardians at the end of 
every quarter. These give the grade of the student in every branch 
of study, his attendance record, and his conduct record with 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.

STUDENT OPPORTUNITIES. 

A limited amount of money can be earned by students by taking 
advantage of the opportunities arising from time to time to do 
clerical work, tutoring and such other labor as may not interfere 
with 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 preference. 



FACILITIES FOR RELIGIOUS WORSHIP. 

The College is undenominational in character. The daily exer- 
cises of the College are opened with religious worship in the Col- 
lege Chapel. 

Students are encouraged to attend the church of their choice on 
Sunday mornings. There is an Episcopal church at College Park; 
and at Berwyn, one mile north, and at Riverdale, one mile south, 
are Presbyterian churches. In Hyattsville, two miles south, may be 
found Catholic, Episcopal, Presbyterian, Baptist and Methodist 
churches. In the city of Washington are churches of all denomi- 



132 

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. 



COLLEGE 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 with his parent or guardian any failures- in a student's rec- 
ord, 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 withdrazval 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, subject to regulations herein 
set forth. 

\ A cadet manifesting indifference to the observance of the rules 
and regulations of the institution, or wanting in proper 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- 



133 

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. 

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.

having conditions will be expected to take the examinations as scheduled and 
will be permitted to do so without the payment of a fee. Should, for any reason,

10. In computing term averages the daily grade is computed at 2, and the 
examination grade at 1. 

11. The yearly averages in all studies is computed by giving each subject 
a weight according to the mean number of periods per week involved ; theo- 
retical periods being given a value of 2, practical periods 1. 

12. Senior students must submit subjects for graduating theses prior to 
February 1st, and all theses for graduation must be completed prior to May 15th. 

13. No special courses are permitted save by consent of this committee. In

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

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

ARTICLES 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 : 

I 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. 

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

1 mattress (uniform), 

2 clothes bags (uniform). 
I broom. 

All the articles marked (uniform) in the foregoing list can best 
be purchased after the student arrives at the College. The cost of 
the entire list should not be more than $15.00 for the year. This 
should be paid to the Treasurer on entrance, as the College has no 
fund from which it can make advances, and failure to comply with 
this requirement will subject the student to much inconvenience. 
Any unexpended balance will be returned promptly.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS. 

Medals. — The authorities of the Institution take this opportu- 
nity to express their appreciation of the courtesy of their friends in 
estabhshing the following, for competition : 

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

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

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



STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS. 

Students' clubs for religious, social, literary and athletic pur- 
poses are encouraged as a means of creating class and college pride, 
and developing an esprit de corps among the students. Each class 
has its own organization, in which matters relating to the class are 
discussed and directed. Officers are elected and the unity of the 
class preserved. This has been found to be a decided aid to disci- 
pline and tends to raise the standard of student honor. 

YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. 

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. 

MORRILL SOCIETY, 
NEW MERCER SOCIETY. 

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 delivery 
of their orations and debates, 

ENGINEERING SOCIETY. 

One of the newest and most beneficial additions to the M, A. C. 
is the Engineering Society. Organized in September, 1912, it 
proved an immediate success, gratifying a long-felt and much- 
needed want on the part of the engineering students. The general 
object of the Society is the cultivation of a more active interest in 
engineering work, while its special aim is to give the student the 
opportunity to discuss the line of work in which he is interested and 
to become more accustomed to presenting his ideas. Inasmuch as 
the Society takes in all members of the Senior and Junior Classes 
in the Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Courses, a larger 
opportunity for acquiring technical knowledge outside of one's 
own course is offered. 

The Society meets twice a month on alternate Thursdays. Papers 
are presented at alternate meetings by Engineers in practice and by 
the students themselves.

THE LIEBIG CHEMICAL SOCIETY. 

The Liebig Qiemical Society was organized to satisfy a much- 
felt need. The object of the Society is to have the various chemical 
problems of the day, discussed by men who have specialized in the 
different branches of Chemistry, or by the members themselves. 
This tends to develop a keener interest in Chemistry, and also to 
broaden the student along Chemical lines. 

Membership in this Society is open to all members of the Sopho- 
more, Junior and Senior Classes, who are specializing in Chemistry. 

OFFICERS. 

President, William K. Robinson. 
Secretary, Alfred Nisbet. 

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. 

OFFICERS. 

President, M. E. Davis. 
Vice-President, W. K. Robinson. 
Secretary, C. M. White. 
Treasurer, H. S. Koehler. 

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.

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



THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION. 

An Institution can largely be judged by the character of its 
Alumni. Their success in life is the Institution's pride. The work 
of the Alumni of a College is its greatest asset. M. A. C. is fortu- 
nate in having among its Alumni men who have attained notable 
achievements in Agriculture, Engineering and Science. M. A, C. 
Alumni can be found holding prominent positions in all walks of 
life. 

While for many years the Alumni, through their Association, 
have taken an active interest in the growth and development of the 
Institution, it is pleasing to state that this interest has been greatly 
increased during the past two or three years and since the recent 
great fire at the College, the Association has taken active steps to 



aid the Board of Trustees and Faculty in the rehabilitation of the 
College. 

One of the cherished hopes of the Association, that of having 
direct representation on the Board of Trustees, has been attained 
in the appointment of the President of the Alumni Association, by 
the Governor of the State, as a Trustee of the College. The attain- 
ment of this end will naturally greatly increase the enthusiasm and 
interest of the members of the Alumni in co-operating more closely 
than ever with the College authorities in increasing the scope and 
usefulness of the Institution. 

The Alumni Association continues to offer medals for worthy 
students in the several collegiate departments, debating societies, etc. 

The members have also greatly aided in the development of 
athletics and especially in conducting the joint athletic meets, which 
were held at the College during the last two years. 

The Alumni also co-operate in the publishing of the Triangle. 

The officers of the Alumni Association for the present year are: 
President, Henry Holzapfel, Jr., '93 ; Vice-President, Fabian Posey, 
'97; Secretary-Treasurer, T. B. Symons, '02; Executive Committee, 
members at large, R. H. Dixon, '06 ; Wellstead White, '05 ; Tri- 
angle Staff — Alumni Editor, E. N. Cory, '09; Business Manager, 
L. B. Broughton, '08. 

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