HYGIENE.

WILBUR A. SAWYER, A.B., M.D., Director of the State Hygienic

Laboratory.
John N. FORCE, M.D., M.S., Lecturer in Hygiene.
MARGARET HENDERSON, B.S., Instructor in Hygiene.

The courses in this department are naturally grouped into two divisions to meet the needs of two classes of students. Students of general public health are advised to combine courses 1 and 3a, and 5. Students interested in the principles of hygiene as applied to the school are advised to combine courses 2, 3a and b, and 5.

Either division of course 3 will include enough bacteriology for general information. Course 4 is designed for students desiring a more special knowledge of bacteriology.

1. Public Health.

Dr. FORCE A general non-technical course in race conservation. The var

ious public health activities as outgrowths of the primitive biological functions; epidemiology, labor protection and sanitation, sanitary architecture, refuse disposal, water supply, food supply, and sanitary law. There will be assignments in field topics suggested by the lectures and weekly reports

in conference. Two lectures, one conference. 2 units. MWF, 11. Pathological Laboratory.

a

course

2. Child Conservation.

Dr. FORCE. The organization of school health departments, including school

sanitation, medical inspection, school nursing, and social service. The physical defects of school children, with systems for their recording, and suggestions for their relief; the question of physical education; outline of

in hygiene covering the entire period of school life; field work consisting of assigned topics in school sanitation and medical inspection, to be reported in weekly conferences. Text: Hoag 's “The Health Index of Children." One lecture, one

conference. 1 unit. Tu Th, 11. Pathological Laboratory.

3. Laboratory Demonstrations in Hygiene. Miss HENDERSON.

a. Public Health. Demonstrations and experiments carried on by the student to illus

trate methods used in protecting the public health. The laboratory exercises will cover, by simple experiments, such things as water and milk examinations, investigation of foods, sewage disposal and water purification, the bacteria causing the common infectious diseases; the principles of transmission of these diseases and methods for their control; methods of disinfection.

1 unit, first three weeks. M Tu W Th F, 9-12. Bacteriological Laboratory.

b. Laboratory Methods in Teaching Hygiene. Experiments and demonstrations suitable for use in presenting the

principles of public health to pupils in graded schools. A series of simple experiments that can be used with the limited apparatus at the command of the ordinary school. It will aim to give to children an appreciation of the purposes and methods of sanitation, of infection, and the spread of disease, of disinfection and the control of disease, of food supplies and the protection of food, of ventilation, of waste and the removal of waste, of the things which the State does to protect the individual, and of the things which the individual can do to protect

himself. 1 unit, second three weeks, M Tu W Th F, 9-12. Bacteriological Laboratory.

4. Elementary Bacteriology.

Miss HENDERSON. A laboratory introduction to bacteriology. Methods, and the

relation of bacteria to common industries. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 1-4. Bacteriological Laboratory.

5. First Aid.

Dr. SAWYER. A course in the recognition and emergency treatment of the com

mon accidents of the home, schoolroom, street, and playground. Practical exercises in bandaging, application of splints and tourniquets, carrying the wounded, and artificial respiration. The American Red Cross Abbreviated Text-book on First Aid

will be followed. 1 unit. MWF, 1. Pathological Laboratory.

PALAEONTOLOGY.
John C. MERRIAM, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Palaeontology and

Historical Geology.
Bruce L. CLARK, M.S., Instructor in Palaeontology.

[ocr errors]

The courses in Palaeontology are designed largely for instruetion in methods of practical investigation. The work will be carried on mainly in connection with problems for the study of which materials are immediately at hand. Those who are not in a position to undertake independent investigation may assist in work under the direction of the instructor. The object of the work in such cases will be to familiarize the student with the elements of the problem in its widest scope, and with the judgments concerned in its solution.

101. The Invertebrate Faunas of the Coast Range Region of California.

Associate Professor MERRIAM and Mr. CLARK.
This course will be carried on almost entirely in the field. The

field work will consist of an investigation of the faunal
zones in the region immediately about Mt. Diablo. The
party will spend a period of five weeks in the vicinity of
Mt. Diablo in the study of typical cross-sections of the
formations, in order to determine definitely the succession
of faunal zones. The field work will include collection
and determination of the fossils from all formations and
mapping of the faunal zones as far as this is possible. The
Mt. Diablo area furnishes a most valuable field for study of
the succession of faunas and formations of the Coast Range
region. Nearly the whole of the geologic column as known
in the coast ranges is well represented in the cross-section of
the mountain, and a knowledge of this region may serve as a
basis for interpretation of the palaeontology and geology of
nearly all areas of the Coast Range. The party will operate
from two camp locations at the foot of Mt.Diablo, the whole
geological section of this region being accessible from these
points. The expense of the field work will consist of the
railroad fare to and from Mt. Diablo, with the cost of sub-
sistence while working in the field. The total expense will

amount to approximately $20. 9 units credit.
202. Research Work on Problems in the History of Life in the
Pacific Coast Region.

Associate Professor MERRIAM and Mr. CLARK. Either independent investigation or coöperation with others

engaged in research. Varying credits.

SUMMER SCHOOL OF SURVEYING.

CAMP CALIFORNIA, SWANTON, CALIFORNIA.

CHARLES DERLETH, Jr., C.E., Professor of Civil Engineering and Dean

of the College of Civil Engineering. Thomas B. SEARS, C.E., Associate Professor of Railway Engineering,

Director of Summer School of Surveying. HENRY J. KESNER, A.B., B.S., Instructor in Civil Engineering. ARTHUR C. ALVAREZ, B.S., Instructor in Civil Engineering. HORACE S. GRISWOLD, C.E., Instructor in Civil Engineering. ADOLPHUS J. EDDY, B.S., Instructor in Civil Engineering. Additional instructors, a medical officer, who will also act as commis

sary agent, and the necessary cooks, janitors and helpers will be appointed before May 1, 1911.

The Summer School of Surveying is held at a camp established at the junction of Scott and Little creeks, Santa Cruz County, within one and one-quarter miles of the ocean coast; eighten miles northwest of Santa Cruz on the Ocean Shore Railroad. Attendance is divided into two sessions on account of the large number of students. About two hundred students attend the school each year. The first session begins Thursday, May 18; the second session, Thursday, June 15. Each session is about four weeks in length. The first session accommodates third-year students in the College of Civil Engineering, and a portion of the first-year class of all the Engineering Colleges. The remaining first-year students attend the second session. Students attending the first session leave Berkeley on May 18; those attending the second session, on June 15.

UNIVERSITY FEE. All regular students attending camp pay a University fee of twenty dollars.

COMMISSARY DEPOSIT.

A deposit of thirty dollars is required from each student, to cover expenses incurred for railroad fares, board at camp, and fines for injury to instruments or camp equipment. Any surplus not required to cover the above items is returned to the student.

The University fee and commissary deposit must be paid in advance to the Secretary of the University at Berkeley. Receipts for these payments must be shown to the Camp Director after reaching camp.
