SUMMER SCHOOL OF SURVEYING

CAMP CALIFORNIA, SWANTON, CALIFORNIA

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

the ('ollege of Civil Engineering. HENRY J. KESNER, C.E., Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering, Director

of the Summer School of Surveying. 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. GEORGE I. Gay, B.S., Instructor in Civil Engineering. RALPH A. WHITE, B.S., Instructor in Civil Engineering. Additional instructors, a medical officer, who will also act as commissary

agent, and the necessary cooks, janitors and helpers will be appointed before May 1, 1912.

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-half miles of the ocean coast; eighteen miles northwest of Santa ('ruz 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 16; the second session, Thursday, June 13. 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 16; those attending the second session, on June 13.

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 Comptroller of the University at Berkeley. Receipts for these pay. ments must be shown to the Camp Director after reaching camp.

ZOOLOGY

HARRY B. TORREY, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Zoology.
JOSEPH A. LONG, Ph.D., Instructor in Zoology.
ASA C. CHANDLER, A.B., Assistant in Zoology.

1. The Behavior of Organisms. An Introduction to Comparative Psychology.

Associate Professor TORREY. Conditions that control behavior; the influence of the environment

upon organisms and how they come in contact with it; the nervous system and sense organs; reflex actions and instincts; the begin. nings of intelligence and rational behavior; mental evolution; the

relation of biology to psychology. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 9. 5 East Hall.

2. Evolution, Variation and Heredity. Associate Professor TORREY, The facts of organic evolution and the significance of recent develop

ments in the fields of variation and heredity. Among the topies to be treated will be: Galton's laws of ancestral inheritance and regression; the statistical method, its results and limitations; Mendel's studies in plant hybridization; the experimental method; continuous and discontinuous variations; the mutations of De Vries; the relative importance of these types of variation in the origin of wild species, and domestic races; natural selection and geographical isolation; evolution and adaptation; the inheritance of acquired characters; Burbank, Nilsson, Hays and other improvers of domestic races; the improvement of the human species

eugenics. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 10. 5 East Hall.

4. Ecology of the Vertebrates.

Mr. CHANDLER. General ecology of the vertebrates, with special reference to the mam

mals and birds of California. The lectures discuss the taxonomy and relationships of the vertebrates, and the habits, life histories, adaptations to environment, and economic importance of the common species.
