IRRIGATION.

ELWOOD MEAD, M.S., C.E., Professor of the Institutions and Practice of Irrigation.

Assistant Professor of Irrigation.

[ocr errors]

The purpose of this department is to give instruction in the methods and practices of irrigators in applying water to crops and in the practical details of the construction, maintenance and operation of canals and reservoirs; and to furnish an opportunity for the study of the legal, social, and economic problems arising out of the development irrigation in the arid west.

Courses 1, 2, and 3 are designed to meet the needs of engineering and agricultural students who wish to make a specialty of irrigation work. They appear as part of the Course of Irrigation Engineering in the College of Civil Engineering. They are also elective in the other Engineering Colleges and in the College of Agriculture.

Students of the Agricultural Department desiring to take these studies should include Civil Engineering la, 1B, and lc in their elective work for the first two years.

1. Organization of the Irrigation Industry.

Professor MEAD and Assistant Professor A study of the present condition of irrigation development in the

United States; irrigation legislation; methods of establishing rights to water; interstate problems; conditions necessary to development of agricultural resources of the arid west; comparisons of irrigation methods and laws of other lands with those of the United States.

3 hrs., second half-year. Tu W Tu, 4. Prescribed, Senior year,

in the Course in Irrigation Engineering, College of Civil Engin

eering, and in some courses in the College of Agriculture. 2. Irrigation Engineering.

Assistant Professor A study of the principles and practice governing in the installment

and operation of irrigation plants. The location, construction, and maintenance of canals and reservoirs, with detailed study of irrigation structures, such as head gates, flumes, measuring boxes, weirs. Methods and instruments used in measuring the

flow of water. 3 hrs., first half-year. M W F, 4. Prescribed, Junior year, in

the Course in Irrigation Engineering; elective in the College of Civil Engineering and in the College of Agriculture.

3. Irrigation Economics.

Assistant Professor A study of business methods used in the operation of irrigation

plants; individual coöperative works; corporate enterprises ; water right contracts; methods of applying water to crops; duty

of water; drainage. 2 hrs., second half-year. MF, 4. Prescribed, Junior year, in the

Course in Irrigation Engineering; elective in other Engineering courses and in the College of Agriculture.

MINING AND METALLURGY.

SAMUEL B. CHRISTY, Ph.B., Sc.D., Professor of Mining and Metal

lurgy. ERNEST A. HERSAM, B.S., Associate Professor of Metallurgy. WALTER S. MORLEY, B.S., Instructor in Assaying, and Mill Asistant. CHARLES T. DOZIER, B.S., Assistant in Assaying.

The lecture courses described below are fully illustrated by lantern-slides. The laboratory courses are designed to illustrate and supplement the lecture courses.

Laboratory deposits are twenty-five dollars a half-year for laboratory courses 7A, 7B, 9, 10, and 13. The 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 usually five or ten dollars.

4. Summer Class in Practical Mining. (Senior Conference)

Professor CHRISTY. During the vacation at the end of the Junior year, all mining

students will be required to spend at least four weeks in the systematic study of practical mining, taking notes and making sketches of processes observed. This is the minimum requirement. It is recommended that all free vacation time throughout the four years be devoted to actual work underground at the various branches of practical mining. Details in every case must be arranged in consultation with Professor CHRISTY. A full report on this work must be presented and read before the Juniors and Seniors at the mining conference during the Senior year. This conference will be held weekly. W, 9.
