The Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, located in a separate building on the campus at Berkeley, was founded and endowed by Miss Annie M. Alexander as a repository for specimens and information relative to the higher vertebrate animals of the Pacific Coast region of North America. The particular groups of animals with which it is concerned are the mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians; of these, it has a very large and continually growing collection, comprising (on July 1, 1926) a total of 94,877 catalogue entries. These materials, together with the accompanying field notes, photographs, and maps, furnish basis for studies along systematic, faunistic, ecologic, and economic lines.

Students interested in the museum may address Professor J. GRINNELL, Director of the Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, University of California, Berkeley, California.

CHESTER W. NIMITZ, Commander, U.S.N., Graduate U.S. Naval Academy, Professor of Naval Science and Tactics (Chairman of the Department).

ERNEST L. GUNTHER, Lieutenant Commander, U.S.N., Graduate U.S. Naval Academy, Associate Professor of Naval Science.

Preparation for the Major.-At present no provision has been made for a major in this department.

Letters and Science List.-Naval Science 1A-1B, 2A-2B, and Astronomy 9A-9B are included in the Letters and Science List of Courses. For regulations governing this list, see page 4.


The courses in navigation, seamanship, ordnance and gunnery are those prescribed by the Navy Department for corresponding units of the senior division of the Naval Reserve Officers' Training Corps. The United States furnishes arms, equipment, uniforms, and some textbooks for the use of students belonging to such units.

The primary object of the Naval Reserve Officers' Training Corps is to provide systematic instruction and training at civil institutions which will qualify selected students of such institutions for appointment as officers in the Naval Reserve. The Naval Reserve Officers' Training Corps will be expected to supply sufficient Junior Officers to the Naval Reserve and thus assist in meeting a demand for increased commissioned personnel in war time.

The courses are given for those who intend to complete the four years of training for a reserve commission in the Navy. While only students signifying such a purpose will be admitted, students who for sufficient reasons are forced to discontinue their training before their commission is granted will be permitted, at the end of two years, to count such training in lieu of the military training prescribed by the University.

The basic course consists of the first two years in the Department of Naval Science and Tactics and is available only for freshmen and sophomore classes of the University.

The advanced course consists of the final two years of the course in Naval Science and Tactics or of such shorter periods of time as may, in exceptional cases, outlined in the regulations, be prescribed by the Secretary of the Navy. The advanced course is available only to students who have successfully completed the basic course and who are in the junior and senior years of the University.

A member of the Senior Division of the Naval Reserve Training Corps who is enrolled for the advanced course is entitled to commutation of subsistence from and extending to the date of the student's fulfillment of the contract (which date will be the first day during an academic term that the student starts the Naval Reserve Officers' Training Corps and advanced course in training), until he completes the course at the institution or his connection with the Naval Reserve Officers' Training Corps is severed in accordance with the regulations prescribed, except that subsistence in kind will be furnished in lieu of commutation of subsistence for any periods devoted to advanced camps and cruises. The amount allowed for subsistence, which will be fixed from time to time by the Secretary of the Navy, will not exceed the value prescribed by law for a commuted ration in the Navy.

Naval Reserve Officers' training camps or cruises will be held annually after the unit is fully organized as prescribed by the Bureau of Navigation. Attendance at one advanced camp or cruise is compulsory for all students enrolled in the advanced course.

All courses are given at Berkeley, except as otherwise indicated.

The courses are open only to able-bodied male students who are citizens of the United States and are over fourteen years of age. Students must pass the same physical examination as is required of all candidates who are commissioned in the Naval Reserve.


1A-1B. Naval Science, First year. (11-11) Yr. M W, 11; W, 4. Professor NIMITZ, Associate Professor GUNTHER

This course will consist of two parts:

(a) Seamanship, handling of small boats, signalling, rules of the road, naval organization. Drills, lectures, and recitations.

(b) Ordnance and gunnery, including practical and theoretical instruction in infantry and artillery, drill, organization, tactics, gunnery and ceremonies.

In addition to course 1A-1в, students in the naval unit will be required to take an academic course, Astronomy 9A, Introduction to Nautical Astronomy, 2 units, during one semester of their first year.

Astronomy 9A.

Introduction to Navigation and Nautical Astronomy. (2) Either half-year. Associate Professors EINARSSON, GUNTHER Lectures, recitations and observatory work. Fundamental principles of astronomy underlying navigation and nautical astronomy. Required for and limited to students enrolled in the naval unit.

This course and its lower division continuation 9B in the sophomore year are intended as academic prerequisites to a proposed upper division course in navigation and nautical astronomy especially designed for naval students, as well as to the present academic course 105A-105B, which is to be reduced in unit value beginning August, 1928.
