(JTTHE second session of the Maryland Agricultural College 
QJ, Summer School for Rural Teachers will begin on Monday, 
June 21st, and continue for six weeks. The success of the 
first session in meeting the demand for this special training 
seems to warrant the large increase in the number of courses 
offered this year, and the addition of a number of specialists to 
the teaching force. The addition of the College credit and the 
review courses will widen the scope of work so that there will be 
opportunity for instruction for teachers in every grade of school 
work. The courses are open to all men and women who are 
qualified to pursue the chosen work to an advantage. The 
instruction in the Summer School, which is an integral part of 
the College work, is free to all residents of Maryland. 

LOCATION. 

The Maryland Agricultural College is located in Prince 
George's County, Maryland, on the Washington Division of the 
B. & 0, R. R., eight miles from Washington, and thirty-two 
miles from Baltimore. 

The College grounds front on the Baltimore and Washington 
Boulevard. The site of the College is particularly beautiful. 
The buildings occupy the crest of a commanding hill, Avhich is 
covered with forest trees, and overlooks a broad vallej" and a 
number of suburban towns. In front, extending to the Boule,- 
vard, is a broad, rolling campus, the drill ground and athletic 
field of the students. 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, orchards, vineyards, poultry, etc., used for experi- 
mental purposes and demonstration work in agriculture. 

ACCOMMODATIONS. ' U . 

The new dormitory, Calvert Hall, w^ill be reserved fbr the 
women applicants. The house used by former presidents ojTthi 
College, which is located on the campus, is reserved for tiie ifieiTT 
Miss Emma S.- Jacobs, who will be in charge of the Domestic 

(1) 



Science courses, will have general supervision of the women's 
quarters, and will be ready at any time to advise women students. 
Ample accommodations may be had in the village or in the 
nearby towns of Berwyn, Hyattsville and Riverdale. Dormitory 
students should supply themselves with towels, pillowcases, 
sheets and a blanket. Students who expect to register for the 
Domestic Science work should bring with them two large white 
aprons, two crash towels (one-half yard square) and a holder 
(four inches square) . Laundry facilities will be provided by the 
College. 

REGISTRATION. 

Monday, June 21st, will be registration day. Students should 
register on Monday, and be ready for class work Tuesday, the 
22nd. Students may register in advance by filling out the 
enclosed blank, and mailing it to the Director of the Summer 
School. 

EXPENSES. 

The instruction is free to all students of Maryland and the 
District of Columbia. A registration fee of five dollars will be 
charged to all applicants. This fee will be used to defray the 
expense of athletic property, library, janitor service and general 
use of College property. A special fee, which is named in con- 
nection with the description of each College, credit course, will 
be charged for the use of laboratory materials. 

The cost of board at the College dining hall will be twenty- 
four dollars for the entire term, or at the rate of four dollars 
per week. The room rent in the dormitory is one dollar per 
week. The board and room in the villages varies from five to 
seven dollars per week. 

CREDITS. 

The Agricultural College will give entrance or college credit, 
respectively, in subjects in which the student performs the 
requisite amount of work. College credit courses may be pur- 
sued only by students who have fulfilled college entrance require- 
ments. Students completing the summer-school work in any of 
the subjects, and passing a satisfactory examination, will be 
issued a certificate showing the amount and grade of work done. 

BOOKS. 

\ - - 

The College and Experiment Station Library will be open 
students ' use. It contains a large number of carefully chosen 



\ 



reference books in the Sciences, History, Biography, Poetry and 
the standard works of fiction. In addition, it contains a complete 
set of State and National reports and surveys. 

Teachers pursuing the review courses should bring with 
them any text-books relating to the subjects in which they expect 
to receive instruction. A nominal charge will be made for any 
text-books loaned by the College. 

CONFERENCE HOUR. 

The Conference Hour is planned for two specific purposes. 
First, to give the student an opportunity to confer with in- 
structors on subjects relative to their school w*ork. Second, an 
hour during which men of prominence in their special lines of 
work will address the students, or conduct "Round Table" dis- 
cussions. These lectures will be by appointment. 

EXCURSIONS. 

The vicinity of College Park abounds in places of historic 
and geologic interest. The College farm, with its experiments 
in fertilizers, field crops, market gardens, fruits, dairy herd and 
poultry plant, will afford ample opportunity for useful study. 
The District of Columbia, which is only four miles distant, will 
give the students an unusual opportunity to visit and study the 
National Departments of our government. Following the plan 
of last year, prearranged excursions to these places of interest 
will be features of the Saturdays' program. 

ATHLETICS. 

Students will have use of the Athletic Field, Tennis Courts, 
Gymnasium and the Y. M. C. A. game rooms. A competent 
instructor will be in charge of the games and organized play. 

COURSES. 

The courses are divided into three groups : Eeview Courses 
in Elementary School Subjects, Secondary Courses in Vocational 
and Science Subjects, and College Credit Courses. It is highly 
desirable for the students pursuing the review courses to enroll 
for at least one of the Vocational or Science subjects. Students 
who matriculate for College credit work will be limited to two 
or three courses, according to the character of the courses pur- 
sued. A "unit" of college credit represents one hour of theoreti- 
cal work per week for one year ; or two hours of practical \v'ork 
per week for one year. * - ..

an approved high-school, and qualified to enter the Freshman

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 

Whekeas, 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 

Whebeas, 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 
a proportionate amount of unclaimed Western lands, in place of 
scrip, the proceeds from the sale of which should apply under 



II 

certain conditions to the "endowment, support and maintenance of at 
least one college where the leading object shall be, without excluding 
other scientific and clt^sical 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 of life." This grant having been formally accepted by the 
General Assembly of Maryland, and the Maryland Agricultural 
College being named as the beneficiary of the grant, the College 
thus became, in part, at least, a State institution. In the Fall of 
1914, the College became, wholly, a State institution. 

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 engineering building, and Calvert 
Hall; as well as by the establishment of the Departments of 
Farmers' Institutes and Extension Work, 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 institu- 
tion 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. Telephone connection is made with the Chesa- 
peake and Potomac lines. * 

The College grounds front on the Baltimore and Washington 
Boulevard. The suburban town of Hyattsville is two miles to the 



T2 

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 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. A temporary assembly hall, 
kitchen and dining hall have been erected and are now in 
use. Living rooms for a part of the students are available in 
Calvert Hall, the dormitory constructed in 1914, and in several 
houses on the College campus. 

In 1894 the building used as the library was erected. It is well- 
lighted and commodious. 

The Departments of Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineer- 
ing and the Departments of Physics and of Mathematics are located 
in the two-story brick building erected in 1896, the brick annex, 
erected in 1904, and the brick addition constructed in 1909. This 
latter, which consists of a main building four stories in height and 



13 

a wing three stories in height, is so arranged as to form with the 
buildings previously 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, 
instrument rooms, lecture rooms, offices, a library room, lavatories, 
lockers, etc. The equipment is modern in every respect and the 
facilities for work in the above named departments have been 
greatly increased. 

The chemical building was completed in 1897, and is now thor- 
oughly equipped. It contains several lecture rooms afnd 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 
Chemistry at this College, who is thereby constituted State Chemist. 

Morrill Hall, erected in 1898, provides laboratories, lecture and 
class rooms, a dark room and storage rooms for the Agricultural 
and Biological Departments. The extensive insect collections of 
past and present State Entomologists, and the State Herbarium are 
housed in this building. The Departments of Entomology and 
Botany have a small greenhouse attached to Morrill Hall for use 
as an insectary and propagating house. In addition, several class 
rooms and offices are used by the Departments of Economics, 
English, Agricultural Education and Languages. 

The Horticultural Building completed this year provides class 
rooms, propagating shed and offices, opening into a range of nine 
greenhouses and a conservatory abutting on the south wall of the 
building. The main building is 200 feet long, and the adjoining 
greenhouses 50 feet by 20 feet each. This equipment furnishes 
ample accommodations for laboratory work in horticulture and 
is comparable to the best in the country. 

The College Sanitarium, completed in 1901, 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- 



14 

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, laboratory and field as will 
enable them to take their places in the industrial world well pre- 
pared for the fierce competition of the day. 

Recognizing that such an education, in order to be of practical 
advantage to many, must be offered at a cost within the means of 
all, the expenses for the year to the student have been reduced to 
the point where his college dues are not in excess of his ordinary 
daily expenses. It is to be remembered that the College is a State 
institution, in part supported by the State, in part by the Federal 
Government through its several endowment Acts, and that it is in 
no sense a money-making institution, but simply a medium of dis- 
bursement by the Government to those upon whom the safety, 
progress 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 {■^ 
clearly kept in view that a sound foundation must be laid for each 
and every course. Successful specialization is only practicable after 
the student has prepared for it by a thorough training in the essen- 
tials. All education must be narrow and one-sided which does not 
provide for the general culture of the student, and which does not 
look first to the natural and normal development of the individual. 
That the aim of the College is to train the student in a specialty 
without sacrificing his development in general culture is shown in 
the description of the general working plan given in the next para- 
graph. 

It begins with the student in his first, or Freshman, year with 
a systematic and carefully adjusted scheme of work, differing but 
little in the several courses, and looking to his general development 
in mental strength, range of information and power of expression 
and thought. At the beginning of his second, or Sophomore, year 
the differentiation may be said to begin along those lines for which 



15 

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 correlated 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 wher 
he leaves the College a successful career is open to him. 

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 
specially 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 to the College a possible one for all those actuated 
by an earnest desire to complete their education.

The work of this Department is designed to meet the demand for 
men, trained in agricultural and manual arts subjects, to teach in 
the high schools of the State. 

In the arrangement of the courses the needs of the agricultural 
and manual arts teacher have been kept in mind. The work how- 



17 

ever, is open to any who desire an insight into the educational prin- 
ciples and problems of teaching vocational subjects. 

The practice teaching is arranged to give the students of this 
Department experience in conducting class work and laboratory 
and field exercises. In addition, arrangement is made whereby the 
student receives both instruction and experience in the teaching and 
supervision of elementary industrial work in secondary schools.

AGRONOMY. 

professor TALIAFERRO. 
MR. BRUCE. 

The Department of Agronomy takes up the agricultural work 
pertaining to the field and its crops. A number of courses are 
offered. These treat of farm crops, their classification, soil and 
climatic adaptations, culture and improvement; soils, their phys- 
ical and chemical properties, methods of treatment for maintenance 
and increase of productiveness; soil amendments, as manures, fer- 
tilizers, cover crops and lime; farm drainage; farm machinery; 
and farm management. 



19 

The College farm consists of two hundred and sixty-five acres 
of land and is operated by the Maryland Agricultural Experiment 
Station together with an adjoining leased farm. 

Students of the College are kept in close touch with the gen- 
eral and experimental work on these farms which offer an unusual 
variety of soils and crops for observation and study. 

Many of the students, who wish to do so, find work at fair 
wages on the farm and are thereby enabled to pay a part of their 
expenses as well as to gain valuable experience. 

COURSES OFFERED, 

20. General Agronomy. The object of this course is to teach 
the approved methods of modern farm practice in regard to soils 
and crop production and from them by means of laboratory and 
field exercises, to deduce logically the scientific facts on which 
such practice rests. It also prepares the student for the more 
detailed study of soils and crops provided in the later courses. 

Freshman Year — Second Term, i theoretical period per week; 
Third Term, i theoretical and 2 practical periods per week. 

21. Soils. The study of the physical and chemical conditions of 
the soils in their relation to profitable agriculture. The soil is the 
basis of all agriculture, and a knowledge of its properties and func- 
tions cannot be too highly emphasized. The study of this 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 "Soils," by Lyon and Fippin. 

Sophomore and Senior Year — First and Second Term, 2 theo- 
retical and 4 practical periods per week. 

First Year — iThird Term, 3 theoretical and 6 practical periods 
per week.

22. Fertilizers. Of vital interest to the eastern and southern 
farmer of the present day is the fertiUzing question. Between it 
and the profit and loss account is a very close connection, and fre- 
quently a lack of knowledge of the subject entails upon the farmer 
both the loss of money paid and of the possible increase of the crop. 
In this course the subject is developed logically from the needs of 
the plant and the efficiency of the soil to the selecting of the proper 
plant foods for each crop under varying conditions of soil and 
climate. Special attention is given to the home-mixing of fertilizers. 

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

23. Farm Crops. A more detailed study of the common farm 
crops is taken up in this course than in any previous course. In- 
struction is given principally by lectures and practical work on the 
farm and in the laboratory.

details of soil management. It includes a study of the effects 
of the most approved systems of tillage and crop rotations upon 



21 

the physical and chemical composition of the soil and its moisture 
content. The laboratory work consists of special studies on the 
type soils of Maryland, soils from the Experiment Station fields, 
which have been subjected to various systems of soil management, 
and samples of soils from the student's home farm.

ANIMAL HUSBANDRY. 

PROFESSOR RUFFNER. 



The Department of Animal Husbandry stands for all lines of work 
which pertain to the judging, selecting, breeding, feeding, devel- 
opment, care and management of the various breeds and classes of 
domesticated animals. Good herds of stock are being established at 



22 

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. 

Junior and Senior Students taking this course are sent to farms 
throughout the State of Maryland, and the eastern section of Vir- 
ginia to supervise advanced registry tests for the dairy associa- 
tions. These trips give the students the advantage of observing 
the most up-to-date dairy farms in the country, in addition to 
practical experience. 

For the past four years a judging team, consisting of three 
students, has been sent to Chicago to participate in the Student's 
Contest in Judging Dairy Cattle. Students in any of the agri- 
cultural courses are eligible to compete for a place on this team. 
The selection of students for the team is based upon ability and 
efficiency in this line of work, 

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. 

40. 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. 
Special 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.

BOTANY AND VEGETABLE PATHOLOGY. 

PROFESSOR NORTON. 
ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR ROSE. 

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 specially 
for students in the Agricultural and Horticultural Courses, and 
take up such botanical studies of cultivated plants, plant diseases, 
etc., as may be useful in practical life to the professional farmer or 
gardener. 

The equipment and means for illustration and demonstration 
consist of a reference library containing the principal botanical 
works needed by students, charts and maps, compound and dissect- 
ing microscopes, preserved specimens for illustration and a repre- 
sentative collection of Maryland plants; microtome and other in- 
struments together with reagents and apparatus for histological 
work and physiological experiments; and a culture room, steriliz- 
ers, incubators and other facilities for the study of plant diseases. 

Advanced students have an opportunity to observe the work be- 
ing done in the laboratory of Vegetable Pathology and greenhouse 
of the State Horticultural Department and 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. 



26 

COURSES OFFERED. 

60. Seeds and Weeds. By examination and careful study the 
student becomes familiar with the ordinary field and garden seeds, 
and with the weed seeds which are commonly found as adulterants.

sideration of the functions of the different plant organs, a more 
complete course in plant physiology (64) 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

CHEMISTRY AND BACTERIOLOGY. 

PROFESSOR MCDONNELL. 
PROFESSOR BROUGHTON. 

MR. DENNIS. 

MR. WHITE. 

This Department is charged with two distinct classes of work, 
(i) The State fertilizer, feed 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. Not including basement, it 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 sec- 
ond floor are three laboratories for the use of students ; a students' 
balance room with first-class chemical and assay balances, polari- 
scope, refractometers, spectroscopes, etc., and a supply room. The 
assay furnaces are in the basement. Each student is provided with 
a working desk, lockers, reagents and apparatus. Additional 
apparatus and materials are provided from the supply room, as 
needed. 

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

Instruction in chemistry is begun in the Second Term of the 
Freshman Year, three to four periods per week being devoted to 
lectures and recitations, and two to four periods to practical work 
in the laboratory by the student, under the supervision of the 



30 

instructor. In this way the student comes in direct contact with the 
substances studied, having at hand ample faciHties for learning 
their properties. Special attention is given to the elements and com- 
pounds of practical and economic importance, such as the air, water 
and soil, the elements entering into the composition of plants and 
animals, the useful metals, etc. This course is intended to give the 
student 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, 
Second 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.

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND PHYSICS. 

PROFESSOR CREESE. 
MR. KAH. 

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 effort has been made to purchase only the best instruments, 
as the use of poorer grades influences the student unfavorably. 
With poor instruments he cannot be taught to do satisfactory work 
and he becomes careless in the handling of them. 

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



41 

A Leeds and Northrup potentiometer and Weston standard volt- 
meter and ammeter for calibrating the various measuring instru- 
ments used in the laboratory. A Sharp-Millar portable photometer 
and a Queen & Co. standard photometer for measuring the candle- 
power of lamps and for determination of illumination intensities. 
A large number of portable ammeters, voltmeters, and indicating 
wattmeters for direct and alternating current measurements ; stand- 
ard curve drawing voltmeter and ammeter; electrostatic volt- 
meter; frequency meters; silver and copper voltameters; Siemen's 
type electrodynamometer ; watthourmeters, both direct and alter- 
nating current. A Leeds and Northrup standard portable testing 
set; heating devices; condensers; tachometers; multiple circuit am- 
meter and voltmeter switches. D'Arsonval galvanometers ; standard 
resistance boxes and bridges, including a very accurate decade 
resistance box and a decade resistance and Wheatstone bridge; 
double and single contact keys, condenser keys, etc. 

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

A Curtis steam turbine, direct connected to a 35-kilowatt com- 
pound generator, has been installed for testing purposes. This 
may be used in connection with the College lighting plant when 
needed, and will be used for light and power service in the engi- 
neering building. 

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 apparatus in the dynamo room includes the following: A 
lo-kilowatt rotary converter of the latest type with speed limit 
and end play devices. A 5 horse-power variable speed commutating 
pole motor. A 7.5 kilowatt, 60 cycle, 220 volt alternator designed to 
operate either as a polyphase generator, synchronous motor, fre- 
quency changer, constant speed induction motor, or variable speed in- 
duction 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 indue- 



42 

tion motor rotor with starting compensator having self-contained 
switches; an induction motor rotor with internal starting resist- 
ance; and an induction motor rotor with 3 phase collector rings, 
external resistance, and controller. A 2 kilowatt booster set, con- 
sisting of a series motor and shunt generator with armatures 
mounted on the same shaft. A 5 horse-power compound direct cur- 
rent motor and a 1.5 horse-power shunt motor fully enclosed. A 7.5 
kilowatt, 120 volt, 3 phase self-excited generator direct connected 
to a 115 volt compound direct current motor. A motor-generator 
set consisting of a 3.6 horse-power shunt motor direct connected 
to a 2 kilowatt compound generator. A 3 horse-power, 3 phase 
induction motor. A 0.5 kilowatt shunt generator belt connected 
to a 0.5 horse-power variable speed shunt motor. A 0.5 kilowatt 
series generator and a 0.25 horse-power, 60 cycle, single phase, in- 
duction motor. Two 2 kilowatt transformers to transform power 
from 1 10 or 220 volts to 1 100 or 2200 volts. Various types of start- 
ing rheostats with automatic overload and no voltage release; field 
rheostats. 

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 
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. 



43 

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 
type subscriber's set, and on the other, a desk set. 

The common battery set consists of an oak panel carrying the 
following equipment: Two line circuits with lamp signals; com- 
plete cord circuits, including ringing and listening keys, opera- 
tor's telephone set, magneto generator, split repeating coils, con- 
densers, retardation coil, supervisory lamp, etc. On one of the line 
circuits is connected a wall type subscriber's set, and on the other 
a desk set. 

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

ENGLISH AND PUBLIC SPEAKING. 

PROFESSOR RICHARDSON. 
MR. BYRD. 
MR. SCHULZ. 

This Department, as its name implies, covers the work of two 
closely allied branches. 

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 



50 

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 beeti 
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, critical reading and 
analysis, and constant exercise in expression, composition and theme 
writing. 

The work in public speaking is begun with easy lessons in elocu- 
tion, 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 and debates, 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.

ENTOMOLOGY AND ZOOLOGY. 

professor symons. 
professor cory. 

Instruction is given in this Department with a view first, to giv- 
ing the student the general knowledge of invertebrate and verte- 
brate zoology, which is necessary as a foundation science for an 



53 

agricultural education; second, to fit the student in elementary and 
advanced entomology, both economic and systematic, so that he 
may pursue this specialty after graduation. A course in economic 
entomology and zoology is also given to provide those students who 
are specializing in any of the allied agricultural sciences, with 
the information which is essential to their ideal development. 

Students who intend to enter the medical profession or work in 
public health and sanitation will find in the Biological Course the 
work which will give them the best possible preparation for those 
professions. 

Students wishing to take advanced work in invertebrate zoology 
are advised to select some subject in entomology. As the State and 
Experiment Station entomological work is conducted through this 
Department, there are special advantages for students in applied 
entomology. 

The reference library is unusually complete, containing in addi- 
tion to the standard works, a majority of the principal entomolo- 
gical and zoological publications. The laboratory is supplied with 
a large collection of insects for the use of students, and is well 
equipped with microscopes and other apparatus necessary for prac- 
tical work in entomology and zoology. 

The glass and screen insectaries of the Stcte Horticultural De- 
partment and the Maryland Experiment Station are joined to the 
laboratory, and afford facilities for special investigation to a lim- 
ited number of advanced students. In addition, a greenhouse 50 x 20 
in the new range of houses has been set aside for entomological 
work. 

A laboratory of the Bureau of Entomology has been established 
at the Experiment Station. The Parasitologist in charge is avail- 
able for consultation by students specializing in parasitic Hymen- 
optera.

HORTICULTURE. 

PROFESSOR SYMONS. 

PROFESSOR BECKENSTRATER. 

DR. BESLEY. 

associate PROFESSOR ANSPON. 

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR STODDARD. 



Recognizing the great importance of every phase of this subject 
in the State, the Division of Horticulture is offering instruction to 



57 

students desiring to specialize in either Pomology, Vegetable Cul- 
ture or Landscape Gardening and Floriculture. The courses in this 
subject have been revised, providing for general courses in all 
phases of Horticulture during the Freshman and Sophomore years 
and permitting them to specialize in any 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. 

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 com.mercial establishment dealing with 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 
be expected to take trips to selected commercial orchards, truck 
farms, greenhouses and markets. 

The Division 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 certificate is awarded. 

The work given in the two-year course will also be more effi- 
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.

FORESTRY. 

The instruction in forestry is planned to give to the siudent, 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:

LANGUAGES. 

PROFESSOR SPENCE. 
MR. SCHULZ. 



The Department of Languages embraces the study of three 
branches: Latin, German and French. All students are required 
to take the courses in German or French. 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 Qass 
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. Special 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 thesi 



66 

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 theii 
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. SPRINGER. 

Mathematics is the basis upon which scientific information rests. 
A knowledge of the study is necessary, as much from the utilitarian 
point of view as from the mental training its acquisition gives. Its 
importance as a factor in our College course takes its rise from the 
former consideration. All instruction in this work is with a view 
to the equipping of students for the more practical work soon to 
follow. 



68

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING. 

PROFESSOR GWINNER. 

ASSOCIATE 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 103. 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 122. 

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- 



TO 

ing and machine shops, 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 i2-inch turning lathes, one i6-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 1,20c 
pounds of iron per hour, a brass furnace, one core-oven and the 
necessary flasks and tools. 

The machine shop equipment consists of one loinch 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. i^^ 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 s 
9 by 14-inch automatic cut off, high speed engine, built by members 
of the Junior and Senior Mechanical Engineering Classes, aftei 
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 kind.' 
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 foi 
lighting purposes if necessary. A cross compound condensing Cor- 
liss engine of fifty horse-power, equipped with brake, indicators, 



n 

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. 

Engineering students are to provide themselves with approved 
drawing outfit, materials and book; the cost of which during the 
Freshman Year amounts to about $15.00. The cost to other stu- 
dents taking mechanical drawing is about $5.00. The College does 
not furnish these, but they are purchased by the student and are 
his property. 

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

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

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 inestimabfe value in shaping these collections of citizens into 

efficient armies. 



77 

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. 

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 General Staff 
of the Regular Army to make an annual inspection of the Military 
Department of each of the institutions of learning in the United 
States at which an officer is regularly detailed. There are about one 
hundred such institutions. This inspector rates these schools accord- 
ing to their status and military efficiency. 



78 

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 spe- 
cially excused by the President of the College, are required to drill, 
and upon entering are enrolled in one of the companies of the bat- 
talion. 

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. 



79 

Students are held strictly accountable for all arms and equip- 
ment issued to them. 

PROMOTIONS. 

The officers and non-commissioned officers of the corps are se- 
lected with reference primarily to their fitness for the duties they 
will be required to perform. Their general deportment and profi- 
ciency in academic work are also given weight in making such 
selection. 

Commissioned officers are, as a rule, selected from the Senior 
Class, sergeants from the Junior Qass, 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. 

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 for all military formations. By special con- 
tract with one of the largest Military Equipment houses in the 
United States, the uniform is furnished at a very low price. Meas- 
ures for this uniform are taken as soon as the student arrives at 
College, and fit is guaranteed. x 

In summer, the field service uniform is worn, consisting of olive 
drab blouse, shirt, and trousers, with canvas leggins, regulation 
campaign hat, tan waist belt and black tie. 

White gloves, collars, caps and other military accessories may be 
purchased at the stores near the College, or from the contractor who 
furnishes the uniforms. 

Information concerning the cost of uniforms, etc., may be found 
on page 130.

PHYSICAL CULTURE. 

DIRECTOR 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 of 
the body. While desiring to make the work in the Gymnasium of 
practical value to all the students, the required work has been 
temporarily discontinued on account of unusual conditions, but 
will be resumed as soon as conditions permit. Lectures on Hygiene, 
the care of the person in its relation to physical well-being, are 
given students in the Sub-Freshman Qass. 



SUB-COLLEGIATE INSTRUCTION. 

PROFESSOR HARRISON. 
PROFESSOR RICHARDSON. 

This Department was established in 1892, and reorganized in 
191 5; 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 a year, and who are fifteen years of age. This 
course is recommended specially 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 



8i 

taken this course make excellent progress in their later collegt 
work. Students in this Department are subject to the same mili- 
tary regulations as other students. 
For outline of courses see page 113. 



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. 

480. 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. 

481. 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. 

482. 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 pen 
iods per week. 



THE COLLEGE LIBRARY. 

DR. SILVESTER. 
MISS CONNER. 

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 necessarilj 
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. 



83 

It is the aim of the Librarian to render all these valuable works 
available for easy reference by the students. 

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. Special thanks are due the county press for 
their liberality in sending their publications free to the Library. 



YOUNG MEN'S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. 

mr. darrow. 

Aims. 

Service, first, last and all the time is the aim of the Y. M. C. A. 
It attempts nothing through selfish motives, but through the desire 
to turn into right channels a boy's surplus energy. 

Nature. 

The Maryland Agricultural College Association is affiliated with 
the International Y. M. C. A. and membership in the local branch 
carries with it a welcome to all city and student associations, and 
during vacation periods, entitles the holder to many of the privileges 
of the city Y. M. C. A. 

Officers. 

For the first time a salaried secretary is in charge of the Y. M. 
C. A. organization. He works through and with a student cabinet, 
having a President, Vice-President, Recorder, Treasurer, and chair- 
men of the following committees : Employment, Membership, Social 
Affairs, Music, Publications and Bible Study. 

The Employment Committee assists students in finding the kind 
of work they want, acting as a clearing house to employer and 
employee. 



84 

The Membership Qiairman's duties are as the title indicates. 
The Social Chairman plans receptions, banquets, and social affairs 
affording a pleasant evening's entertainment to all. The Music 
Chairman obtains special music for Sunday and other meetings, 
and the Publications Chairman keeps the public informed. 

Regular Meetings. 

The Bible Study Chairman organizes bible and special problem 
study classes, and endeavors to interest the student in unselfish 
ideals. 

Special speakers on both popular and religious subjects, are pro- 
vided for Sunday 3:30 meetings. The proximity to Washington 
makes it possible to obtain the best of talent, Representatives, Gov- 
ernment officials, worth while business men, and Ministers of power, 
thus making the meetings of great value. 

Location. 

The Y. M. C. A. is located in Calvert Hall. It has beautiful 
quarters; a game room, furnished with all kinds of games, a pool 
room, a reading and writing room, and an office for the Secretary. 
A good readable line of books having a sane, helpful, moral tone 
make the readinsf room attractive.

New Students. 

Receptions are given to get the new men acquainted with the 
student body and with the members of the faculty, so as to make 
them feel "at home." 

New students are given special attention, warned of dangers and 
guided to harmless but interesting methods of "letting off steam" 
without scorching their moral fibre. 

A handbook is published, giving the student detailed information 
about the College, its societies and activities. Upon request it will 
be mailed to you free of charge. 

The Association welcomes at all times suggestions for its better- 
ment and extension of its service.

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, several 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 Agricultural Education, Agronomy, Animal 
Husbandry, Horticulture, Biology, Chemistry, Canning, General 
Science, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical 
Engineering, Rural Engineering, and Engineering Education. 

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 addition to the regular collegiate courses, two-year courses 
are given in Agriculture and Horticulture. 

There is also a Course in Sub-Collegiate Instruction for the benefit 
of students unable to obtain elsewhere adequate preparation for 
entrance into the Freshman Class. 

Short Winter Courses in Agriculture, Horticulture and Engineer- 
ing are given for the benefit of those who find it impossible to 
afford the time necessary for an extended course in these subjects. 

The Agricultural College, in co-operation with the State Depart- 
ment of Education, conducts a six-weeks' SUMMER SCHOOL, be- 
ginning this year on June 21st. 

The purpose of the SUMMER SCHOOL is to provide z course 
of vocational training for teachers and prospective teachers of rural 
and graded schools. The work offered this year includes courses 
'n Elementary Agriculture, Domestic Science and Art, Industrial 
Hand Work, Theory and Practice of Teaching, History of Mary- 



86 

land. State and National Constitutions, Chemistry, Physics, Survey- 
ing, Botany, Zoolog}^ and Entomology 

A bulletin giving a full description of the courses is issued by 
the College. For full information address the Director of the 
Summer School. 

A SUMMER SCHOOL for MINISTERS will be held from 
July 26th to August 3rd for those who wish to broaden their field 
of service in the communities in which they labor. Courses will 
be given in Rural Sociology, Rural Economics, Religious Pedagogy 
and Agriculture. Further information concerning these courses 
may be obtained from Professor F. B. Bomberger, Dean of the 
Division of Rural Economics and Sociology. 

A CONFERENCE on COUNTRY LIFE will be held for 
MINISTERS on August 4th, 5th and 6th. Leaders of national 
reputation will present matters of vital interest to the Church. 
Bulletins containing complete information concerning this Confer- 
ence may be obtained upon request from Mr. B. H. Darrow, Secre- 
tary of the Young Men's Christian Association. 

In the tabular statements 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 EDUCATION COURSE. 

The Course in Agricultural Education is arranged to give the stu- 
dent a broad general knowledge of agriculture, languages, science 
and pedagogy. 

Students taking this course receive practically the same work 
during the first two years as those of the other agricultural courses. 
In the Junior and Senior Years the agricultural work is continued, 
in addition to the special work in pedagogy and practice teaching 
which these students receive. Enough of agriculture is included in 
the course to enable the student to carry on farm operations in a 
scientific manner. The graduate is fitted not only to teach and 
supervise the teaching of agricultural subjects, but to manage school 
demonstration farms or conduct a farm of his own.

AGRONOMY COURSE. 

The four-year Course in Agronomy is designed to fit the graduate 
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 if occasion re- 
quires, to act as county demonstrators or advisers. With these ends 
in view, the Course has been made at once comprehensive and tech- 



88 



nical. It is 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.

TWO-YEAR AGRICULTURAL COURSE. 

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. They realize that the farm can no longer be 
run in the old-time haphazard way, that 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, and that 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 understanding of the underlying principles of 
successful agriculture, a short course of two years has been pro- 
vided. 

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 



91 

union of many interests. To enter this Course a working knowl- 
edge of arithmetic, including fractions, mensuration and percentage, 
and a common-school training in English is required. Upon com- 
pletion of this Course a certificate is granted. 

SHORT WINTER COURSES. 

For men and women who can spare from one to ten weeks only 
from their home duties the College offers a series of short courses 
occupying from one to two weeks each, beginning after the Christ- 
mas vacation. 

For 1916 the arrangement will be: 

First week — Soils and Fertilizers. 

- , , ) Farm Crops. 
Second week — V _^ ^. o • 

J Domestic Science. 

Third week — Poultry Husbandry. 

Fourth and fifth weeks — Horticulture. 

Sixth week — Horses and Beef Cattle. 

Seventh week — Swine and Sheep Husbandry. 

Eighth week — Dairy Husbandry. 

Ninth week — Farm Implements and Motors. 

Tenth week — Farm Carpentry, Blacksmithing and Pipe Fitting. 

Experience has demonstrated the advantage of dividing the work 
into short periods, during which time the attention of the student 
is engrossed wholly with one subject. It enables the student to 
concentrate his efforts and affords opportunity for those who are 
interested in but one or two subjects, such as poultry husbandry or 
domestic science, for example, to take what they desire with the 
greatest economy of time. 

No charge is made to short course students for the use of labora- 
tories. Good board at moderate rates can be secured in the neigh- 
borhood. For more detailed information regarding these courses, 
write for bulletin and folders. 



HORTICULTURAL COURSE.

portunity is presented for students in the four-year Course to spe-

cialize in either pomology, vegetable culture or landscape gardening 
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 required 
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 horti- 
culture. 



TWO-YEAR HORTICULTURAL COURSE. 

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. 

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



SHORT WINTER 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. For further particulars regarding Winter Courses, see 
page 91, special folders, 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. 

In addition, this Course is specially valuable in preparing stu- 
dents who wish to enter the medical profession, particularly those 
who expect to enter the highest grade medical schools, which require 
for entrance a four year collegiate course in sciences and languages. 
These students will be required to substitute organic chemistry 
for some subject given in the regular Biological Course. 

There are many opportunities for scientific workers in connection 
with the Agricultural investigations of the Federal Government and 
of the State Experiment Stations, as well as in the State inspection 



95 

work, for which this Course gives training. In fact, it is now diffi- 
cult to secure men trained for such work. Full opportunity is given 
for the student to develop his natural resources and to learn to do

CHEMICAL COURSE. 

The Course in Chemistry is essentially the same as the other 
science courses until the second 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 beginning of the Second 



Chemical Course.

•Courses marked with asterisks are alternative. 

Term of the Sophomore Year, and the demands on the agricultural 
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. 



w 



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



CANNING COURSE. 

The great importance of the canning industry in Maryland; the 

fact that it is, to a great extent, an agricultural industry, and the 

further fact that the suggestion of a Course has met with so many 

hearty indorsements from prominent canners, has caused the College 

Canning Course.

authorities to establish a Course in Canning, in order that young 
men interested may have an opportunity to become acquainted with 
the underlying sciences, and at the same time secure a liberal edu- 
cation. 

During the first two years of the Course the studies will not differ 
much from those of the other courses. After this a large part of 
the student's time will be occupied with sciences relating directly 
to the canning industry, such as bacteriology, chemistry, agriculture, 
horticulture, and canning technology. This latter will cover a wide 
range and will include the theory and practice of canning in various 
lines, experimental work, and lectures from persons of national repu- 
tation. Assistance in these lectures has been promised by officers 
of the National Canners' Association and others. 

A canning expert is to be engaged to take charge of the technical 
instruction in canning, which will include both theoretical and lab- 
oratory work. 

Routine and factory experience are expected to be gained by 
students spending at least two summers, usually devoted to vacation, 
in a canning factory. 



GENERAL SCIENCE COURSE. 

The General Science Course is offered to those young men who 
have not chosen as their vocation in life any of the technical profes- 
sions, but who are seeking for such general culture as will fit them 
to become, after graduation, useful members of society. Young 
men desiring to study law, or medicine, or the liberal arts, or to 
become teachers, will find in the curriculum of this Course a highly 
satisfactory preparation for such work. While emphasis has bees 
placed upon 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 dioose for himself, under certain necessary 
regulations, such a group of studies as will be best adapted to his 
own peculiar requirements.

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, includes 
not only studies having cultural value, but the sciences which form 
the basis of engineering. Students who have found themselves de- 



lOI 



ficient in ability to learn mathematics are not advised to enter an en- 
gineering course. 

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

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



ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING COURSE.

Hon 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. 

The curriculum, as outlined, includes those studies which provide 
a broad general culture, as well as a good foundation for the engi- 
neering work which follows. From the beginning of the Second 
Perm of the Sophomore Year the electrical training extends con- 
tinuously throughout the Course. 



MECHANICAL ENGINEERING COURSE. 

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

Young men not having a natural taste for mathematics and the 
handling of tools are advised not to pursue this Course. The prac- 
tical work of this Course is most thorough. The student is familiar- 
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 difficulty in securing em- 
ployment immediately upon graduation in the field of mechanics ©r 
mechanical engineering.

RURAL ENGINEERING COURSE. 

This Course is offered to students who wish to become proficient 
in such branches of engineering as relate in particular to the prob- 
lems of rural communities. The broad training offered in engineer- 
ing is supplemented by instruction in those agricultural subjects 
which will give the student a greater breadth of view concerning 
rural problems requiring the services of an engineer, and, if he 
should elect to settle in the country for the practice of his profession, 
will enable him to conduct his farming operations with pleasure and 
profit. The Course is open to students entering the Freshman or 
Sophomore Class in the Fall of 191 5.

ENGINEERING EDUCATION COURSE. 

A substantial demand for teachers of the Manual Arts who have 
had a broad training in engineering-, has led to the establishment of 
this Course. In addition to the instruction in engineering, a 
thorough training in pedagogy is offered. Since the need for such 
teachers is felt in urban and in rural communities, some opportunity 
is given the student when he enters the Senior Class, to select those 
subjects in engineering which will best fit him for the solution of the 
problems of the community in which he wishes to practice his pro- 
fession. The Course is open to students entering the Freshman 
or Sophomore Class in the Fall of 191 5.

SHORT WINTER COURSES IN ENGINEERING. 

These courses are offered to those who for various reasons 
cannot attend the four year courses. They are thoroughly practical 
in their nature and exceedingly helpful when full advantage is taken 
of the instruction given. Folders giving the details of these courses 
will be sent upon request. The following short courses will be 
given in 1916 : 

One week's Course on the Building and Maintenance of Roads. 

One week's Course on Farm Machinery and Motors. 

One week's Course on Farm Carpentry, Blacksmithing, Pipe 
Fitting, and the Use of Concrete on the Farm.

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. 

METHOD OF ADMISSION. 

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

(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 certificate 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 upon application. 

(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 1915 on June 9th 
and loth, and September 14th and 15th. 

Requirements for admission to the Freshman Qass for the ses- 
sion of 1915-16 will be as follows: 



"5 



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.

SUGGESTIONS FOR PREPARATION IN THE REQUIRED SUBJECTS. 

GROUP L 

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. 

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 paragraph or two on each of several topics, to be chosen by 
the candidate from a considerable number set before him in the 
examination paper. 

FOR STUDENTS ENTERING IN 1915: 

Shakespeare's "As You Like It" and "Julius Caesar"; Addison's 
*'Sir Roger de Coverley Papers"; Scott's "Ivanhoe"; Goldsmith's 
"Vicar of Wakefield"; Irving's "Sketch Book"; Macaulay's "Lays 
of Ancient Rome"; Longfellow's "Evangeline"; Lowell's "Vision 
of Sir Launfal"; Poe's "Raven"; Eliot's "Silas Mamer"; Gray's 
"Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard." 

English B. For study and practice. (One and one-half 
units.) The candidate should read the books presented below witli 



117 

the view of acquiring such knowledge of their contents as will 
enable him to answer specific questions with accuracy and some 
detail. The examination is not designed, however, to require 
minute drill in difficulties of verbal expression, unimportant allusions 
and technical details. 

FOR STUDENTS ENTERING IN 1915: 

Shakespeare's "Macbeth"; Milton's "L' Allegro," "II Penseroso," 
and "Comus" ; Macaulay's Essay on Johnson or Carlyle's Essay on 
Bums; Washington's Farewell Address and Webster's First Bunk- 
er Hill Oration or Burke's Speech of Conciliation with America. 

Algebra to Quadratics. (One unit.) As treated in the alge- 
bras of Wells, Wentworth, Tanner, Fine, or an equivalent. The 
four fundamental operations; factoring; highest common factor 
and least common multiple; fractions (including their conception 
as ratios) and complex fractions; powers and roots; the solution 
of linear equations, both numerical and literal, and of problems 
depending on linear equations; radicals and the theory of expo- 
nents; and the solution of simple second degree equations in one 
unknown quantity by factoring. 

Algebra from Quadratics. (One-half unit.) As treated in 
the algebras of Wells, Wentworth, Tanner, Fine, or an equivalent. 
Equations with one or more unknown quantities, to be solved by 
the methods of linear or quadratic equations ; ratio, proportion and 
variation; variables and limits; properties of series, including the 
binomial theorem for positive integral exponents, and the formu- 
las for the nth term and sum of the terms of arithmetical and 
geometrical progressions with applications; logarithms. 

Plane Geometry. (One unit.) As treated by Wentworth, 
McMahon, Phillips and Fisher, or an equivalent. The usual the- 
orems and constructions, including the general properties of plane 
rectilinear figures, the circle and measurement of angles, similar 
pol.vgons, areas, regular polygons and the measurement of the cir- 
cle ; the solution of original exercises, including loci problems ; and 
the application to the mensuration of lines and plane surfaces. 
The student should be able to prove every statement made, going 
back step by step until it rests upon primary definitions or axioms. 



ii8 



GROUP n. 



American History. (One unit.) Channing's Student's History 
of the United States, McLaughlin's History of the American 
Nation, Hart's Essentials in American History, or an equiv-

of at least one standard text-book, to the end that the pupil may 
gain a comprehensive and connected view of the most important 
facts of elementary chemistry. The subjects should be attempted 
only in schools which possess an adequate equipment; laboratory 
work is essential and original notes must be submitted; more im- 
portance will attach to descriptive chemistry than to analytical, and 
the student should become as familiar as possible with the com- 
monest non-metals and metals, as well as their simpler compounds. 

Physical Geography. (One-half unit.) A study of the earth, 
atmosphere, waters and attendant phenomena; the distribution of 
both animal and vegetable life, and the various industries resulting

Tarr, or an equivalent. 

Physiology. (One-half unit.) The preparation should include 
the general facts of the anatomy, histology and physiology of the 
human body and the essentials of hygiene. A text-book, such as 
the first part of Hough and Sedgwick's The Human Mechanism, or 
an equivalent should be used in connection with charts and models. 

Zoology. (One-half unit.) The preparation in Zoology should 
include a general knowledge of common animals of the locality with 
regard to their ecological relations ; the general study of the animal 
forms such as the Amoeba, a ciliate, an earth worm, insect, frog

For Advanced Standing. Applicants for advanced standing in 
any course, in addition to satisfying the requirements for admis- 
sion to the Freshman Class, must pass an examination in the stud- 
ies which have been pursued by the class for which they are candi- 
dates. Work done at a standard college is accepted when properly 
certified and found on examination to be equivalent in extent and 
quality to that required at this College. 

Examinations for Admission to Any Higher Class will be 
held at the College in June and September at the same times as 
examinations for admission to the Freshman Class. 

Candidates for the Sub-Freshman Class will be required to 
present certificates or to pass examinations in English grammar, 
arithmetic, algebra to quadratics, geography, physical geography, 
United States and English history, and first-year Latin. 

Students from newly acquired territory or any foreign country 
must have a local guardian appointed with parental powers, with 
whom the President can deal in any case of emergency. Students 
who cannot speak English are not desired, and are advised that 
satisfactory progress at this College on their part cannot be achieved 
until they have familiarized themselves partly, at least, with the 
English language. 



EXAMINATIONS AND PROMOTIONS. 

In order to pass from one class to the next higher, a student is 
required to pass an examination in each study pursued, by a marK 



121 



of at least sixty per cent., and to have a combined mark in each 
branch (daily and examination) of at least seventy per cent. 

A student will not be promoted if it is manifest that he cannot 
pursue successfully the advanced work. 



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.

SCHOLARSHIPS. 



High-School Scholarships. — To encourage worthy young men 
who desire a Collegiate Education, the Board of Trustees has estab- 
Hshed for each High School in Maryland and the District of Colum- 
bia, one scholarship each year* to be awarded under the following 
conditions: 

I. — The person awarded a scholarship must be a graduate of a 
high school and qualified to enter the Freshman Qass (See Entrance 
Requirements, page 114), and must be of approved moral char- 
acter and at least 15 years of age. 

2. — The appointment to a scholarship shall be made by the School 
Superintendent, upon the recommendation and certification of the 
Principal of the High School. 



124 

The Principal of the High School may recommend one or more 
persons for appointment, with information as to the merits of each 
case. In making appointments, not only class standing, but inabil- 
ity to meet the financial expenses of an education should be given 
consideration. 

3. — ^The appointment shall be made for the term normally re- 
quired to complete the course selected. 

4. — Each scholarship has the value of $50.00 per year. This 
amount will be credited on the holder's account. 

5. — The scholarship will be forfeited by persistent indifference to 
scholastic work or by repeated disregard of the rules of discipline 
of the College. 

6. — The scholarship will be forfeited in case the holder fails of 
promotion at the end of any scholastic year, unless there are extenu- 
ating circumstances. 

County Scholarships. — Counties which do not have a high 
school will be given one $50.00 scholarship each year, and the recipi- 
ent may enter the Sub-Freshman class (See Entrance Requirements, 
page 120). The appointment to the scholarship is made by the 
County Superintendent after a competitive examination. In other 
respects the regulations governing this scholarship are the same 
as for the high-school scholarships. 

Industrial Scholarships. For the encouragement of worthy 
young men of limited means towards getting a College education, 
a limited number of industrial scholarships have been established by 
the Board of Trustees to be awarded under the following con- 
ditions : 

I. — The number of scholarships will depend upon the amount of 
service required. 

2. — The value of the scholarship will be graduated according to 
the amount and character of the work performed, and will range 
from $40.00 per year upwards. The amount earned will be credited 
on the holder's account. 

3. — ^The holder of such a scholarship will be required to render to 
the College certain specified services, such as work in the dining- 
room, on the corridors, in the library, etc. 

*This plan will be gradually put into effect as the present scholarships become 
vacant. 



125 

4.— Such services will not as a rule prevent the holder from par- 
ticipating in military drill. 

5.— Vacancies as they occur shall be filled by the President of the 
College and ratified by the Executive Committee of the Board of 
Trustees. 

6. — The holder of an industrial scholarship: (a) — ^must be more 
than 15 years of age and of normal size, health and strength; (b) — 
must be of approved moral character as attested by some well- 
known resident of his locality; (c) — must be qualified to enter the 
Freshman Class of the College (See Entrance Requirements, 
page 114). 

7. — The scholarship will be forfeited by persistent indifference to 
scholastic work or by repeated disregard of the rules of discipline 
of the College. 

8.— The scholarship will be forfeited in case the services re- 
quired of the holder are not satisfactory to those in charge of the 
work. 



FACILITIES FOR RELIGIOUS W^ORSHIP. 

The College is undenominational in character. The daily exer- 
cises of the College include religious worship in the College Chapel. 

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



126 

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 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 GjI- 
lege. 

It is understood that the President of the College as the execu- 
tive of the same, and acting for the Board of Trustees, a party to 
this contract, has the right to ask the withdrawal of a student at 
any time, when in his judgment such withdrawal may he necessary 
either for the interest of the young man or the institution which he 
attends. It is further understood that a parent or guardian can 
at any time withdraw his son or ward, subject to regulations herein 
set forth. 

A student manifesting indifference to the observance of the rules 
and regulations of the institution, or wanting in proper attention 
to the preparation of his work, will be cautioned to improve. Fail- 
ing to do so his parents, upon notice given by the President, must 
withdraw their son. 

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

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

Students will not be permitted to leave classes to answer telephone 
calls, unless they are urgent. 



127 

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

The College will not be responsible for articles left in the dormi- 
tories 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. 

RULES ON COLLEGIATE ROUTINE, ENDORSED BY THE FACULTY. 

1. A student may not change his course of study unless at the written re- 
quest of his parent or guardian, and after said request has been endorsed by 
the head of the course abandoned, and the head of the course requested, and 
approved by the Committee on Courses. 

2. Examinations to make up conditions acquired in any term will be given 
only on the mornings and afternoons of certain Saturdays in the following term 
set apart for this purpose, and at such dates as shall be provided for entrance 
examinations at the beginning of the scholastic year. On these dates students 
having conditions will be expected to take the examinations as scheduled and 
will be permitted to do so without the payment of a fee. Should, for any reason, 
an examination be requested at any other time, a charge of $1.00 will be made

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. 

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 Public Speaking, who is always ready to advise with 
the members in matters of parliamentary law and train them in 
the delivery of their orations and debates.

ENGINEERING SOCIETY. 

One of the newest and most beneficial additions to the M. A. C. 
is the Engineering Society. Organized in September, 19 12, 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. 



^34 

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

OFFICERS. 

President, A. H. Massey. 
Vice-President, E. R. Hindman. 
Secretary, J. E. Bowland. 
Treasurer, F. J. McKenna. 

THE LIEBIG CHEMICAL SOCIETY. 

The Liebig Chemical 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 themselvep 
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 Qasses, who are specializing in Chemistry

aged and supported by the President and Faculty. The entertain- 



135 

ments have been marked by a spirit which emphasizes the wisdom 
of its organization and justifies its encouragement.

students from the same County to discuss the affairs of the County.

cerning their home County. 



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 



138 

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 a past 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 Association 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 a medal to the debat- 
ing societies. 

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 four years. 

The Alumni also co-operate in the publishing of the "M. A. C. 
Weekly." 

The officers of the Alumni Association for the present year are: 
President, R. M. Pindell, '89; Vice-President, F. P. Veitch, '91; 
Secretary-Treasurer, R. Brigham, '08; Executive Committee, mem- 
bers at large, W. W. Skinner, '95; W. D. Graff, '00; ".M. A. C. 
Weekly" Staff— Alumni Editor, E. N. Cory, '09 ; Business Manager, 
R. C. Williams, '14. 

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