Faculties, at Berkeley, before May 1. After admission as graduate students, their applications for admission to the Lick Observatory are referred to a standing committee of the Academic Council consisting of the President of the University, the Director of the Lick Observatory, the Director of the Students' Observatory, and the heads of the departments of Mathematics and Physics.

As many graduate students as can be furnished accommodations at Mount Hamilton, without expense to the University, may pursue astronomical studies at the Lick Observatory; and in return for the accommodations they will be required to execute such computations, etc., as are assigned to them.

It is usually advantageous for students to choose their time of resi. olence at the Lick Observatory in the period from May to December.

HIGHER DEGREES Graduate students enrolled in the Lick Astronomical Department of the University may become candidates for the degrees of Master of Arts, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy. The general conditions on which these degrees are granted are printed in the Circular of Informa. tion, Academic Colleges.

Candidates holding fellowships in the Lick Astronomical Department are usually required to spend one term each year in graduate work at Berkeley; the place of residence being assigned by the Director of the Lick Observatory, from a consideration of the needs of the Observatory work, and of the courses of instruction available at Berkeley, after consultation with the heads of the related departments of the University. In all other cases the term of residence at Mount Hamilton and at Berkeley is determined by the proper committee for each individual candidate.

QUARTERS FOR THE STUDENTS Comfortable quarters (partly furnished) are allotted to students at the Observatory. Students make their own arrangements for board and service. The cost per month for each student need not exceed $30. Each student should bring with him the linen for his room, blankets, etc., and hould also provide himself with the text-books which are constantly reedel: Young's General Astronomy, Campbell's Practical Astronomy, Bruennow's Lehrbuch der Sphaerischen Astronomie, Chauvenet's Spherical and Practical Astronomy, Watson's Theoretical Astronomy, Oppolzer's Bahnbestimmung, Klinkerfues ’-Buchholz's Theoretische Astronomie, or Bauschinger's Bahnbestimmung; standard six-, five-, and four-place tables; Crelle's Rechentafeln; etc. All injuries to apparatus


unust be made good at the student's expense, and students are expected to provide the larger part of the chemicals used in their practice of photography.

Intending students will do well to communicate with the Director of the Observatory before filing their formal applications for admission with the Recorder of the Faculties. The post-office address is Mount Hamilton, Santa Clara County, California.

ADMISSION OF VISITORS TO THE OBSERVATORY The Observatory buildings are open to visitors during office hours every day of the year. For the present visitors who arrive at the Observatory on Saturday nights before nine o'clock will be admitted to look through the great telescope. Whenever the work of the Observatory will admit it, the 12-inch telescope also will be placed at the disposition of visitors on Saturday nights. The Astronomical Society of the Pacific holds its summer meeting in the Library of the Lick Observatory.

Students of the University of California who visit Mount IIamilton are requested to make themselves known, in order that the work of the Observatory may be fully explained to them.
