Extra Instruction. For the benefit of those students who are ditioned, or who from any cause do not make satisfactory progress in any subject, arrangements have been made whereby they can receive special assistance in those studies in which they are deficient. The hours of instruction are set for a time that does not interfere with the regular college work. A nominal charge is made for this special instruction.

Special Students.—The advantages of this college are offered to those persons who may wish to receive instruction and perform the laboratory work, but who do not wish to take the regular course, or to comply with all the conditions required to obtain a degree. They can enter as special students in any or all of the subjects taught, by paying the fees for such as they take.

San Francisco as an Educational Center.-San Francisco as an educational center has few equals in the United States. In addition to its excellent grammar and high schools, seminaries, and academies, it has many institutions for academic, scientific, and technical instruction. Besides several large libraries, supported by subscription, it has a most excellent free library, which is used by all classes of citizens. There are also manufacturing establishments, such as acid works, pharmaceutical and serum laboratories, glass works, oil and paint factories, etc., which the students are privileged to visit in company with the professors.

Garden of Medicinal Plants.-A small garden devoted to the growing of medicinal plants is located just back of the college building. The garden is maintained by the Alumni Association of the California College of Pharmacy. In this garden are grown about one hundred different species and varieties of the more important medicinal plants. Members of the senior class will be given an opportunity to study these plants under cultivation.

Climatic Conditions.-It is never too hot or too cold in San Francisco to work with comfort. There is no exhaustion or sickness due to heat or cold; malaria and zymotic diseases are rare. The new and commodious building erected by the state for the College of Pharmacy is a delightful place to work in, being spacious, light, airy, and well ventilated. The view from the laboratories is unparalleled, overlooking Golden Gate Park, the Golden Gate, and Mount Tamalpias.

Boarding and Lodging.–Board and lodging can be obtained in San Francisco for from twenty-five to thirty dollars a month, and restaurants abound in which meals can be had at from ten to forty cents. Single furnished rooms may be had, without board, for from five to ten dollars per month.

Work in Stores.—There are about three hundred and fifty drug stores in San Francisco and vicinity (Oakland, Berkeley, Alameda, San Rafael, etc.), and of late years practically all who wish to do relief work while attending college have done so, receiving fair compensation for the services rendered. In this way some students earn their board and carfare and others a less amount. The Dean keeps a register for the purpose of bringing employers and employees together.

The Directors' Scholarship of a full year's tuition in the graduate class is awarded each year to the senior student who, in the judgment of the Faculty, is most likely to do the best research work in one or more of the subjects taught in the college. Applications for this scholarship must be made to the Dean not later than December 1.

California.) (c) Certificates of high standing in other institutions of collegiate

grade. (d) Diplomas from normal schools of this state. (e) First-grade teachers' certificates of this state. (f) Certificate of having completed satisfactorily the second year's

course in high school in this state.

3. Applicants who do not present any of the foregoing credentials will be examined in the following branches:

(a) English. Grammar and composition.
(b) Geography.

(c) Freehand Drawing.
(d) Arithmetic. Fundamental rules; fractions; common and deci.

mal; denominate numbers, percentage; proportion; weights

and measures, metric, apothecaries', and avoirdupois. (e) Algebra, to quadratics with one unknown quantity. (f) Latin. Elementary. The applicant will be expected to be able,

with the aid of a dictionary, to translate simple Latin sen-
tences into English, and vice versa, and to analyze gram-

matical forms.
(9) Geometry. Elementary, including mensuration of solids.

An applicant who fails to pass the entrance examination may be conditioned in not more than two subjects, in which he will be re-examined after three months. Should he again fail, his fees will be refunded, except that the sum of twenty-five dollars will be retained, which will be placed to his credit if he should return to the college and pay the balance of his fees within two years.

Applicants who desire to be matriculated without examination for the course leading to the degree of Graduate of Pharmacy may present their credentials to the dean at any time before the opening of the college on September 1, 1914. All others will present themselves for examination at the college on

Tuesday, September 1, at 9 a.m.


BACHELOR OF PHARMACY (PHAR.B.) Applicants will be matriculated who have received a degree in Letters or Science, or who have been matriculated in the University of California, or who present a diploma from an accredited high school or other institution whose credentials will be accepted for entrance to the Colleges of Letters, Arts, or Sciences of the University. Such diplomas or credentials should be presented to the Dean before August 11, 1914. Those who cannot present such credentials are required to take the entrance examinations at Berkeley. Applications by mail for examination permits should be sent to the Recorder of the Faculties at Berkeley. These permits must be secured in advance.

Matriculation examinations at Berkeley will be held on August 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 1914.

The examinations will be prepared and conducted by such officers as may be appointed by the departments.



FIRST OR JUNIOR YEAR Inorganic and Didactic.

Professor GREEN. The course of instruction begins with the phenomena of changes, physical and chemical. The lectures are followed by experiments on the part of the student in the laboratory, illustrating the principles and facts spoken of.

Theory is considered when the student lays the foundation of simple chemical knowledge through experiments which he is taught to carry out. The construction of chemical formulae is then dwelt upon, and is followed by stoichiometry. In the course of study, the groups typified by the elements hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, chlorin, and carbon are described, with their compounds. Then follows the chemistry of the metals, with their oxides and salts. They are taken up in the order of their analytical classification, with this exception, that the alkalies and the alkali earths are mentioned first. The chemistry of inorganic mat ia medica is made a feature.

SECOND OR SENIOR YEAR Organic and Didactic.

Professor GREEN. This course in organic chemistry consists of a series of lectures, together with laboratory work. The subjects are the aliphatic hydrocarbons of the paraffin, olefine, and the acetylene series. Also the derivatives of the open-chain hydrocarbons, viz., the halogen derivatives, alcohols, ethers, sulphuric compounds, aldehyds, ketones, acids, esters, amins, amids, carbohydrates, carbonic acid, and cyanogen derivatives.

The course is continued so as to include the cyclic hydrocarbons and derivatives. These comprise the phenols, cresols, diatomic phenols, likewise the aromatic aldehyds, ketones, and acids; fact, cyclic compounds of pharmaceutical interest claim the greatest attention. The organic bodies containing nitrogen are then considered, especially the alkaloids,

This course includes the study and classification of the modern synthetic remedies.



Professor GREEX. The course begins with examples of chemical action, followed by the analysis and synthesis of simple things. The chemistry of the gases follows, the student isolating oxygen, hydrogen, mitrogen, chlorin, and experimenting with their compounds. Then the non-metals are considered and their properties investigated. The theory of the manufacture of salts and acids used in pharmacy, with their doses, follows, together with identification of the official acids, oxides, metals and salts. This completes the first part of the junior year. Then the properties of the metals are shown by reagents, together with the behavior of the acids, from the first steps leading to the study of analytical chemistry.

Qualitative analysis, based on the tests in the United States Pharmacopoeia, completes the term. In adopting such a wide range of study it is the aim to have typical processes of precipitation, neutralization, crystallization, and analysis carefully and correctly performed, rather than compel the student to do hurried work.


SECOND OR SENIOR YEAR Analytical and Experimental.

Professor GREEN. The course commences with elementary crystallography and the recog. nition of each system, with examples chosen from official salts. Models, both opaque and transparent, are used as aids. Then follows a short laboratory course in organic chemistry. The work is intended to elucidate classes and types. The student then begins analytical work which em. braces a systematic course of quantitative chemical analysis, volumetric, gravimetric, and colorimetric. This is a necessity in the education of a practical pharmacist, and the course is shaped to this end. Quantitative (gravimetric) chemical analysis and manipulation, and volumetric analysis and its application to practical pharmacy, complete the first senior session.

The polariscope is employed in estimating sugar, also in determining the optical rotation of the essential oils. The absorption bands of coloring matter are demonstrated by means of the spectroscope. Along with these physical tests, the methods for the determination of the melting points are studied, with examples, such as melting point of petrolatum, cacao butter, lard, the waxes, salol, naphthaline, and acetanilid. The chemical tests for the new official synthetic compounds, as well as some in frequent use that are not recognized by the United States Pharmacopoeia, are carried out not alone as to identity, but also with a view to the detection of impurities.
