RAYMOND, B.S., Assistant Professor of Physics. GEORGE K. BURGESS, Sc. D., Instructor in Physics. ARTHUR INCELL, B.S., Assistant in Physics. CHARLES A. KRAUS, B, S., Assistant in Physics. ARTHUR S. KING, M.S., Assistant in Physics. CONRAD LORING, B.S., Assistant in Physics. ELLIS W. FURBUSH, Assistant in Physics. Courses 1 to 3 are fundamental and designed to meet the needs of students preparing for applications of Physics, or advanced work in the subject itself. Course 4 is especially designed for students in the Colleges of Letters and Social Sciences, but if properly accompanied by laboratory exercises, it may also serve as a basis for advanced study. Courses 2A and 4 are alternatives; credit towards graduation will not be allowed for both of them. Students who have completed Course 1 will profit greatly if they supplement the course of laboratory work regularly laid out. For credit on special and supplementary laboratory work see Course 18. The Physical Laboratory will be open five days a week throughout the year, and may be used, under the guidance of the instructors concerned, by advanced students. Laboratory deposits are at the rate of five dollars a half-year for each laboratory exercise a week. The average amount returned to the student at the end of the half-year, after deducting for cost of materials actually used and for breakage of apparatus, is about one-half of the deposit. The Group Elective. Students who choose Physics in their Group Elective must include an adequate amount of laboratory exercises in the work chosen; the instructors should be consulted on this point. Such students are strongly advised to take Course 5 in the Junior year. Notice that the first half-year of this course may be combined with Course 6 or Course 7 to form a year's work. Courses 1 and 2A in Physics are prerequisite to Group Elective work in all departments of Natural Science. By special arrangement Course 4 may be substituted for Course 2A. In 1902-03 Course 4 or Course 15 will be offered, but not both. Teachers' Certificates. Applicants for the teachers' recommendation in Physics, in making up the twenty units required, must include in their work Courses 1 and 3, with either Course 4 or Course 2A. See statements under these headings. Beginning with May, 1903, twenty-four units of Physics will be required for the teachers' recommendation. 1. Elementary Physics. Dr. BURGESS and Mr. KRAUS.
