culus, with applications to geometry. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 9. 14 North Hall. While this course will not be fully equivalent to course 9B, it

may be possible in individual cases for students conditioned in integral calculus to remove that condition by satisfactory

completion of this course. 6. Selected Topics in Geometry.

Professor HASKELL. This course is designed especially for teachers of geometry and

will include: a discussion of the methods involved in elementary geometrical constructions; the possibility of solving a geometrical problem with ruler and compasses, or with the compasses alone; other simple instruments for use in geo

metrical constructions; the quadrature of the circle. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 11. 18B North Hall.

WENDELL PRESCOTT ROOP, A.B., Assistant in Physics.
HARRY C. BURBRIDGE, Assistant in Physics.

Assistant in Physics. The physical laboratories will be open daily, except Saturdays, from 9 to 12 and from 1 to 4. Students who choose courses in Physics are strongly urged to devote enough time to this subject to secure a real gain from the effort.

The laboratory fee will be $5, payable in advance. See p. 4.

None of the courses offered are intended to remove deficiencies incurred in regular university courses. 1. Laboratory Exercises in Matriculation Physics.

Mr. CAVANAGH. A series of laboratory exercises intended to supplement defec

tive preparation for the matriculation examination in physics. Approved work in this course will carry credit for the laboratory part of the requirement; but the examination upon

principles must be regularly taken in August or January. M Tu W Th F, 9-12, 1-4. 1 and 2 East Hall.

2. Laboratory Exercises in General Physics.

Professor MINOR. Selections, adapted to the preparation and the needs of the indi

vidual student, from the laboratory exercises of the Freshman and Sophomore courses, and intended primarily for students who do not take these courses regularly in the University. No university credit can be obtained toward the regular Freshman course. In the regular Sophomore course, approved note-book record of individual exercises may be accepted, at the discretion of the instructor then in

charge. M Tu W Th F, 9-12; 1-4. 4 East Hall.

3. Advanced Laboratory.

Assistant Professor DREW. Laboratory work on special lines, offering opportunities for work

of really advanced character. This course is especially planned for attendants upon previous summer courses. Open to qualified students, after consultation and arrangements made individually with Professor Drew. Credit may be

given at the discretion of the department. M Tu W Th F, 9-12, 1-4. 7 South Hall.

4. Selected Topics in Heat.

Assistant Professor DREW. Lectures, with occasional experimental illustrations. Among

the topics treated will be: Thermometry; applications of the kinetic theory; phenomena connected with change of state; the critical state; liquefaction of gases; properties of bodies at very low and very high temperatures; elements of

thermodynamics. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 11. 13 South Hall.

5. The Teaching of Elementary Physics.

Assistant Professor Drew. Conferences, giving opportunity for free discussion and com

parison of experience. Tu Th, 3. 13 South Hall,

ASTRONOMY.

ROBERT GRANT AITKEN, M.A., Sc.D., Astronomer, Lick Observatory,

Mount Hamilton, California.

1. Modern Astronomy.

Dr. AITKEN. A general lecture course on the more important problems of

present-day astronomy, the instruments and methods used in modern observatories, and the aims of astronomical research. Many of these lectures will be illustrated by lantern slides. A knowledge of advanced mathematics is not a prerequisite.

2 units. M Tu W Th F, 9. 1 Observatory. 2. Double-Star Astronomy.

Dr. AITKEN. This course will include practical instruction in micrometer

observations, the theory of orbit computations, with practical applications, and the study of individual stellar systems of special interest. A knowledge of plane trigonometry is

prerequisite. 2 units. M Th, 10, and three observatory periods to be arranged. 1 Ob

servatory.

GEOGRAPHY.

Harold W. FAIRBANKS, Ph.D.

1. Field Work in Physiography.

Dr. FAIRBANKS. A field study of that portion of the Sierras included in the

Tehipite, Mt. Whitney, Kaweah, and Olancha topographic sheets. The party will cross the Sierras from Mineral King to Lone Pine by way of Mt. Whitney, returning by way of Independence, Kearsarge Pass, and Kings River Canyon. Attention will be centered on the general structure of the fault block of the Sierras and upon the canyons and glaciation. The descent into Owens Valley will permit a study of the

main fault scarp and of the earthquake rift of 1872. Primarily for graduate students and teachers of Physical Geog

raphy. Admission on application to Dr. Fairbanks or to Professor Holway. Limited to 20 students. Laboratory fee, $8. To give time for satisfactory arrangements for the pack train it is desirable that registration be made by May 15. The course will not be given unless 15 students register by June 1. The first three days will be spent at the University in preparatory lectures (M Tu W, 9, 1 North Hall). On Tuesday, June 23, there will be an excursion along the trace of the earthquake fault of April, 1906. Properly qualified students may register for not to exceed 5 units of graduate work.
