EQUIPMENT

The General Library, housed in the newly completed building, provided for by the bequest of the late Charles F. Doe, now contains over 250,000 volumes. It is constantly augmented by donations and exchange, and by large purchases of books with the income from the Michael Reese, Jane K. Sather, E. A. Denicke, and other funds. Books are specially bought each year for the particular courses offered during the Summer Session. All Summer Session students enjoy the full privileges of the library, including the drawing of books; and the hours of opening are the same as during the regular academic year.

The library and reading room of the Department of Agriculture, situated in Agriculture Hall, receives the publications of the experiment stations of the United States, and other countries, as well as pamphlets on agricultural subjects published by various governments and commissions. About one hundred and forty dailies, weeklies and monthlies are regularly received.

MUSEUMS AND LABORATORIES

Psychological Laboratory. The whole of the second and third floors of the Philosophy Building and part of the basement are devoted to the psychological laboratory. Besides a full equipment for class instruction and for demonstrations in connection with lectures, the laboratory is provided with a large number of special instruments for investigations in all the principal lines of psychological experiment. There is also an ample collection of such auxiliary instruments as are most frequently required in setting up special apparatus for research, and there is a shop equipped for carpenter work. In addition to the main laboratory room there are several quiet rooms suitable for research purposes, a large dark and silent room, and a photographic dark room with full equipment. All the rooms are connected by switchboard with high and low potential electric current, and are served with alternating lighting current and gas.

The Physical Laboratory is located in South Hall, whose construction secures favorable conditions as regards stability and evenness of temperature. There are set apart rooms for elementary and for advanced work, and for special research. The apparatus includes many instruments and standards for fundamental measurements from makers of the best reputation, and the laboratory employs two competent mechanicians who are continually increasing the equipment from original designs.

Students' Observatory (Berkeley Astronomical Department). The equipment of the Observatory consists of the following instruments: An eight-inch reflector; a six-inch refractor; a five-inch refractor; two sixinch portrait lenses with a three-inch guiding telescope, all equatorially mounted with driving clocks; a three-inch Davidson combination transit and zenith telescope; a two-inch altazimuth instrument; a spectroscope; a spectrometer; a Berger's surveyor's transit with solar attachment; a Repsold measuring engine for measuring astronomical photographs; a Gaertner microscope for measuring spectrograms; an electro-chronograph; a Harkness spherometer; a level trier; sextants; chronometers; a Howard M. T. clock; all the necessary electric connections for recording time and determining longitude by the telegraphic method.

Chemical Laboratories. A large brick building contains the lecture rooms and laboratories for the courses in elementary and analytical chemistry, for several branches of applied chemistry, and for both undergraduate and graduate work in organic chemistry. This building is provided with a large and varied equipment, including a liquid air plant, a machine shop, and a good collection of specimens of rare chemical compounds and of products illustrating manufacturing processes.

The newly constructed wooden annex is designed chiefly for research work in physical and inorganic chemistry. It includes an instrumentmaker's and a glass-blower's room and several small laboratories for special investigations, many of which investigations are continued by members of the instructing staff and advanced students throughout the summer term.

The Mineralogical and Petrographical Laboratories are provided with a large collection of minerals and rocks and are equipped with the necessary apparatus for research work in crystallography and petrography.

The Museum of Geology and Mineralogy comprises an extensive suite of minerals and ores illustrating the chief phenomena of crystals and of economic deposits. There are, besides, many crystallographic models, and relief maps geologically colored. There is a similarly extensive suite of petrological specimens affording a fairly good illustration of the subject of petrology; and many specimens illustrative of the more interesting features of structural geology.

The Rudolph Spreckels Physiological Laboratory. There are laboratory facilities for about fifty students of physiology in the east wing of the building and for a similar number of students of physiological chemistry in the west wing. The central part of the building is chiefly devoted to advanced instruction and research. The department library contains complete sets of all the important physiological journals, and the more important monographs on physiological and related subjects.

instincts as congenital sources of habits and as primary springs of conduct during much of the child's life; environmental factors producing retardation;' the so-called inherited diseases, maternal impressions, malnutrition, intoxication, birth injuries, diseases of childhood, home influences, school life, social environment; a brief review of the important periods of growth, the prenatal life, infancy from birth to the fifth year, childhood from the fifth year

to puberty, adolescence. 1 unit. M Tu W Th F, 2 (beginning July 14). 1 Philosophy Building.

113. Clinical Psychology.

Professor WITMER. The origin and growth of the Psychological Clinic; backward children

distinguished from imbeciles and idiots; types of feeblemindedness, cretins, mongolians, etc.; defective children and children with defects; borderland cases like the chronic bad spellers; moral cases; methods of examination and treatment; eugenics and orthogenics; extension of work to normal children and more especially to extra bright children and to children endowed with

peculiar temperaments or special aptitudes. Throughout this course the case method of presentation will be

freely employed. A selection of actual cases of children who have been carefully studied will be made and the facts of the child's condition, history, and treatment will be laid before the class with the double purpose of illustrating concretely typical cases of exceptional children and of presenting in orderly arrangement the principles, motives, and results of clinical psychology.

1 unit. M Tu W Th F, 9 (beginning July 14). 110 California Hall.

114. Clinical Examination and Training of Subnormal Children.

Mrs. Hicks.

Methods of diagnosis and the various types of cases appearing in the

public school clinic will be discussed, and this discussion will be preparatory to the more detailed study under Professor Witmer.

Course 115 must accompany this course. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 8. 3 Philosophy Building.

115. Training Class for Subnormal Children.

Mrs. Hicks, Miss GOODHUE, and Miss NEY. In connection with courses 113 and 114 there will be a practice class

where students will have an opportunity for observation of different varieties and degrees of mental deficiency such as they may meet

in public school experience. About twenty children will be chosen as illustrative cases. They will be given expert training not only in school work of the ordinary kind, but in games, hand work and gymnastics for the purpose of quickening their perceptions, elearing their imagery, improving their muscular coördination and general tonus. Experienced teachers in charge of the class will demonstrate the most modern methods of dealing with mental deficiency. The majority of the children will be typical cases of retardation such as any teacher may find in her class room, or any

mother may find in her home. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 9-12. California Field.
