The Staff. The instructors and advanced students hold weekly meetings, at

which reports are made on the research work of members of the zoological staff, and on important current papers, followed by informal discussions. Although all are welcome to the meetings, the membership is restricted to students doing advanced special work. Students who wish to become active members should consult

Professor KOFOID. 1 hr., throughout the year; 1 unit each half-year. F, 4. 223. Teachers' ('ourse.

Assistant Professor LONG. Cytology and embryology. 229A-229B. Research

Assistant Professor GRINNELL. Systematic vertebrate zoology. Geographical distribution.

The work done during the last few years on the marine invertebrate fauna of the Pacific Coast has served to reveal more and more clearly the richness of the opportunities, in many respects unique, here afforded for making important contributions to zoological science.

The museum collections are all accessible to students pursuing advanced studies, and are particularly valuable to those pursuing investigation in marine zoology. The California Museum of Vertebrate Zoology, the gift of Miss A. M. Alexander, affords exceptional opportunities for investigation in the field of systematic vertebrate zoology and geographical distribution.

The results of studies carried sufficiently far to make them distinctly contributions to the science may be published in the University of California Publications in Zoology (volume 14, in progress).

The San Diego Marine Biological Station, now incorporated in the Scripps Institution for Biological Research, located at La Jolla is equipped with a new building containing laboratories, aquaria, apparatus, and a working library, and with a sea-going vessel, the “Alexander Agassiz.'' The station is open throughout the year and work carried on in its laboratories under the direction of members of the staff by registered students receives University credit. Residence at the station may be counted as residence at the University.

UNIVERSITY EXTENSION

A Department of University Extension was originally organized during the year 1902–03 to carry on, as the work of a separate department of the University, extension lecture courses in different parts of the state of California. Courses of lectures, with classes for study in connection therewith, were given wherever university extension centers were organized, the control and selection of the courses being left entirely to the committees of the various local centers. Each course consisted of twelve lectures delivered at fortnightly intervals on days and in places chosen by the local committees, and university credit was given after a satisfactory examination to those who attended the lectures and completed the work of the classes. University Extension traveling libraries, containing several copies of the books needed for study in connection with the lectures and classes, were sent to the local centers, and for courses in which they were needed lantern slides and other illustrative material were supplied. Under this plan several university extension centers were organized and successfully maintained.

In 1913, however, the Department of University Extension was reorganized under the name of the University Extension Division. This Division includes two general fields of activity; namely, personal instruction and public service. These activities are at present carried on through five bureaus, which, with their respective functions, are specified in the following synopsis of the present plan of organization.

I. INSTRUCTION

The Bureau of Class Instruction: Organizes and conducts classes for the study of university subjects in cities and towns in which fifteen or more people request instruction in a single subject.

The Bureau of Correspondence Instruction: Offers instruction by mail in the languages, in literature, mathematics, music, drawing, education, political science, anthropology, geography, typewriting and stenography, etc., etc. Courses may begin at any time. This form of instruction is designed especially for isolated students, such, for instance, as may be preparing for college and professional schools, matriculated students who wish to do work in absentia, business and professional men and women and particularly those engaged in industrial occupations who desire to increase their efficiency without giving up their positions and spending the time and money necessary to attend the University.

The Bureau of Lectures: Provides lectures singly or in series of six or twelve for any committee, club, organization, or community in the state that will make the necessary arrangements for their delivery.

II. PUBLIC SERVICE

The Bureau of Public Discussion: Furnishes assistance to individuals and organizations interested in debate, or in the study of public questions, by suggesting questions for discussion and providing briefs and bibliog. raphies, and with the assistance of the librarians of the state endeavors to bring the material necessary to intelligent discussion of a given question into the hands of those who apply for such material.

The Bureau of Information and Municipal Reference: Answers inquiries addressed to the University, devoting particular attention to inquiries concerning municipal affairs, and otherwise assists the distribution of knowledge.

The aim of the University Extension Division is to bring university instruction to the people of the state who cannot attend the regular classes of the University, and to make the resources of the University, so far as possible, generally available.

Complete information with regard to University Extension, including methods or organization, fees, and the granting of credit towards a university degree, will be sent on application to the University Extension Division, University of California, Berkeley.
