SUMMER SESSION, 1906
The Summer Session of the University of California for 1906 will be held in Berkeley, beginning Monday, June 25, extending over six weeks, and closing Saturday, August 4.

Ezequiel A. Chavez, Sub-Secretary of Public Instruction and Fine Arts, Republic of Mexico, a course of lectures in Spanish upon Mexico, its history, institutions, and progress; Professor Frederick J. Turner of the University of Wisconsin, United States History; Professor George Burton Adams of Yale University, Mediaeval History; Professor Josiah H. Penniman of the University of Pennsylvania, English Literature; Professor George H. Ling of Columbia University, Mathematics; Professor Alcée Fortier of Tulane University, French; Professor Raymond Dodge of Wesleyan University, Psychology; Professor E. P. Cubberley of Leland Stanford Jr. University, Education; Professor A. H. Yoder of the University of Washington, Education; Hon. J. H. Ackerman, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Oregon, Education; Mr. Frank B. Cooper, Superintendent of Schools, Seattle, Washington, Education; Mr. Thomas L. Heaton, Deputy Superintendent of Schools, San Francisco, Education; Mr. Frank F. Bunker, Assistant Superintendent of Schools, Seattle, Washington, Education; Miss May Secrest of the California Polytechnic School, Domestic Science. From the permanent Faculty of the University some of those who will offer courses are: Professors J. Frederick Wolle, Music; Edward B. Clapp, Greek; W. J. V. Osterhout, Botany and Elementary Agriculture; R. S. Holway, Geography; Harry A. Overstreet, Philosophy; Chauncey W. Wells, English Composition; Henry W. Prescott, Classical Literature in English; E.

In connection with the work in Education, Professor F. E. Farrington will con
duct an observation school near the University. The sixth, seventh, and eighth grades will be represented, and every opportunity will be offered to teachers attending the Summer Session to visit the school.
The work in Physics, Chemistry, and Geology will consist of practical laboratory courses, supplemented by lectures on the principles involved. Progress in developing the methods and fixing clearly the aim of such work has been so rapid that the best results have not yet found their way into books. This fact enhances the importance to teachers of the opportunity thus offered. In Physics and Chemistry provision will be made for students and applicants who wish to do experimental work in preparation for university matriculation.
The work in Physical Geography will include field excursions, and will be of especial value to teachers of this subject in the secondary schools.
To insure adequate arrangements in due season, and to facilitate prompt communication with prospective students in case of change in present plans, all persons who desire to attend any of the courses are urgently requested to notify the Recorder of the Faculties on or before Wednesday, June 13, using the blank form of application appended to this announcement.
