CHEMISTRY.

EDWARD Booth, Ph.B., Assistant Professor of Chemistry.
WILLIAM CONGER MORGAN, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Chemistry.
HARRY V. WELCH, Assistant in Chemistry.
GRAHAM B. MOODY, Assistant in Chemistry.

The chemical laboratories will be open daily, except Saturdays,

from 9 to 12 and from 1 to 4. A deposit of $15 will be required of all students taking laboratory courses; of this sum $10 will be retained for cost of materials, and the balance, after deducting for apparatus broken or lost, will be refunded.

1. Elementary Chemistry.

Assistant Professor BOOTH. An introduction to general chemistry, with especial reference

to those facts and principles which form an essential part of a general education. Daily lectures, experimentally illustrated, and experimental work carried on by the student. The time devoted to laboratory work varies from 3 to 6 hours daily, according to the ability of the student. Credit for matriculation Chemistry 12B will be given for a satis

factory completion of the course. M Tu W Th F, 11. 217 Chemistry Building.

102. Advanced Chemistry.

Assistant Professors MORGAN and 'Booth. The opportunity will be given to a limited number of properly

qualified students to undertake experimental work of an advanced character in the field of inorganic chemistry. No fixed course is presented but every facility in the way of apparatus, laboratories and libraries, together with personal advice and assistance, will be offered to those capable of doing independent work. Hours will be arranged individually. Credit not to exceed 3 units may be given.

103. Chemistry of Everyday Life. Assistant Professor Booth. A course designed to show the intimate relations existing be

tween the science of Chemistry and the affairs of everyday life. In addition, the course will include much matter of a general chemical character,--historical, descriptive, and speculative,--not properly included in an elementary course. Lectures with experimental illustrations where possible.

2 units. M Tu W Th F, 9. 217 Chemistry Building.

104. The Teaching of Chemistry in Secondary Schools.

Assistant Professor MORGAN. ('onferences with actual or prospective teachers; discussions

of the purpose and aim of science teaching in general and of the subject of chemistry in particular; of the relative value to the student of laboratory work as compared with experimental lectures, of qualitative and quantitative experiments; of the extent to which industrial applications and the chemistry of everyday life should be emphasized; of text-books, their uses and abuses and other problems, actually confronting the teacher. The attempt will be made to present an up-to-date view of the most important principles of ('hemistry in a form adapted for use in sec

ondary education. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 8. 210 Chemistry Building.

BOTANY.

HARLEY P. CHANDLER, B.S., Instructor in Botany, Principia Academy,

St. Louis, Missouri.

1. California Flora.

Mr. CHANDLER. Laboratory and garden studies of the flowering plants of (ali

fornia. Training in naming and classification, with the aid of local Aoras and keys. The aim of the course is to enable the student to make for himself determinations of flowering plants to familiarize him with botanical terms, and to acquaint him with typical representatives of the more important plant families. Material for study will be selected from the botanic garden of the University and from the wild

flowers of the district surrounding Berkeley. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 8. 5 Botany Building.

2. The Morphology of Seed Plants.

Mr. CHANDLER. Laboratory studies, supplemented by recitations or lectures, on

the structure, habit, ecology, and geographic distribution of flowering plants. A typical form of each of the more important groups will be studied with a view to determining its structure, relation to environment, methods of pollination

and seed dispersal, etc. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 11. 5 Botany Building.

ZOOLOGY.

* WILLIAM E. RITTER, Ph.D., Professor of Zoology and Director of

the San Diego Marine Biological Station. J. FRANK DANIEL, Ph.D., Instructor in Comparative Anatomy. LOYE H. MILLER, M.S., Instructor in Biology and Natural Science,

Los Angeles State Normal School.

on

1. A Biological Presentation of the Problem of Sex and Reproduction.

Dr. DANIEL. The consideration of abundant biological material the

subject of sex and reproduction which will make for a

sounder understanding of the subject. It will be the aim, both in lecture and laboratory, to select

materials which are sufficiently simple to present to the child in the grades, and, at the same time, to present the materials in such a way as to provide a natural approach to

the subject. 2 units, M W F, 1; Tu Th, 10-12. East Hall.

2. General Biology of Birds.

Mr. MILLER. General biology of the birds with especial reference to the

California species; lectures with illustrative laboratory work, in which the commoner species of California will be

studied. 2 units, M Tu W Th F, 2. East Hall.

103. Embryology.

Dr. DANIEL. Intended for any who may desire a knowledge of the funda

mental facts of vertebrate embryology. In the laboratory will be studied the development of an m

- Die ctylus, the chick, and the pig. In addition consideration will be given to the formation of the foetal membranes of

mammals. 4 units. M Tu W Th F, 8-12. 7 East Hall. A laboratory fee of $2.50 will be charged in the above courses.

*At the San Diego Marine Biological Station, La Jolla, California.

THE MARINE BIOLOGICAL SURVEY.

The marine biological work that has been in progress for several years on the coast of Southern California by the Department of Zoology is now permanently established, with broadened scope and increased facilities.

While, as heretofore, the whole time and effort of the staff of the laboratory will have to be devoted to research, a limited number of students sufficiently advanced to be able to work under the guidance of the investigators to the advantage of both themselves and their directors will be gladly admitted.

Graduate students who are candidates for higher degrees in the University may, with the approval of the Professor of Zoology, count the time spent at work in the laboratory as University residence for such degrees.

The work of the station is now carried on throughout the entire year. Applications for admission to the laboratory should be made to the Director, Prof. William E. Ritter, La Jolla, California.
