ANDREW C. LAWSON, Ph.D., Professor of Geology and Mineralogy. ARTHUR S. EAKLE, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Mineralogy.

A laboratory deposit of five dollars a year is required for Course 1, to cover cost of materials actually used and breakage of apparatus. Deposits are not required for other courses in this department.

1. Mineralogical Laboratory.

Assistant Professor EAKLE and Mr. OSMONT. The course comprises two parts: (a) Practice in the determination

of unlabeled minerals by means of their physical properties, the apparatus consisting of pen-knife, pocket lens, streak plate, and magnet. The object is to give the student sufficient familiarity with the most commonly occurring minerals of geological and economic importance to enable him to recognize or determine them in the field without delay. (6) The latter half of the course is devoted to the determination of minerals by blowpipe

analysis. 6 hrs., throughout the year; two units each half-year. Two sec

tions: Tu Th, 9–12, 1-4. Prerequisite: Matriculation Chemistry. Elective, College of Civil Engineering, with Mechanical Engineering 8 or Drawing 8A. Prescribed, Sophomore year, in the

College of Mining, to the extent of 1 unit each half-year. 21. Crystallography. (G.E.)

Assistant Professor EAKLE. The morphology of minerals. 2 hrs., first half-year. MW, 1. Prerequisite: Junior standing.

Prescribed, Junior year, in the College of Mining.

2B. Crystallographical Laboratory. (G.E.)

Assistant Professor EAKLE. 2 hrs., first half-year; 1 unit. MW, 2-4. Concurrent with Course

2a, and open only to students who are taking that course. 2c. Physical Properties of Minerals. (G.E.) Professor LAWSON.

Lectures. 1 hr., second half-year. Th, 11. Prerequisite: Course 2A. Pre

scribed, Junior year, in the College of Mining.

3. Descriptive Mineralogy. (G.E.) Assistant Professor EAKLE. A discussion of the salient properties and mode of occurrence of

the more important minerals, with a classification of the same

in natural groups; illustrated by typical specimens. 2 hrs., second half-year. MW, 10. Prerequisite: Courses 1 and

2a. Prescribed, Junior year, in the College of Mining.

5. Graduate Course.

Assistant Professor EAKLE. Studies in the goniometrical investigation of crystals and in the

determination of their physical constants. The acquiring of a wider and more thorough knowledge of minerals than is possible in the undergraduate course.

Petrography. See Courses 3 and 4 under Geology.
