ERNEST BROWN BABCOCK, B.S., Assistant Professor of Plant Pa


The rapidly increasing demand for the introduction of elementary agriculture into the schools, both secondary and elementary, calls for the earnest coöperation of all available agencies by which teachers may be adequately prepared to give instruction in this subject. The great scope of subject matter presented by agriculture in its broader sense affords such a variety of topics that undirected individual effort on the part of schools is likely to result in confusion and dissatisfaction. It is for this reason that the University has proposed a course in horticulture, such as, it is hoped, may soon be introduced into many of our high schools.

The following courses are offered in the belief that they will be of value to teachers who wish to introduce such a course into the high school in the near future, as well as to elementary school teachers who desire to enrich their exposition of a required elementary text in agriculture or to make a successful beginning in school gardening.

Other courses of interest to students of this subject will be found in the department of Botany. See page 52. 1. California Fruits.

Assistant Professor BABCOCK. The chief fruit products of California considered with reference

to varieties, principles and practice of production, handling

and marketing. Lectures 3 hours per week. 1 unit. MWF, 8. 2 Agricultural Building.

2. School Garden Operations. Assistant Professor BABCOCK. This course consists primarily of laboratory and field work, but

it will be opened and supplemented by lectures and discussions of garden work adapted for California schools. Laboratory work will consist of exercises in seed selection, seed testing, and practice in making cuttings, budding and grafting. Field work will consist of (1) nursery practice in propagation by cuttings, starting tree seeds, budding seedling fruit trees and rooted rose cuttings and top-working orchard trees; (2) observations at the school garden of the Washington School, Berkeley, where a class of children will be

working. Two periods of 2 hours each. 1 unit. Tu Th, 8-10. 2 Agricultural Building.
