The Titicultural Laboratory is intended not only for the analysis of musts and wines, but also for the experimental production of wines on a small scale. The outfit for the latter purpose occupies part of the basement, and three cellar-rooms of the Agricultural Building. Students desiring to become familiar with such work, or with the theory and art of wine-making, are admitted to laboratory and cellar practice.

Zymological Laboratory. This laboratory is intended for both instruction and investigation in the theory and practice of fermentation. It is provided with the necessary apparatus, and has accommodations for twelve students.

For olive testing, by actual manufacture of oil from different varieties, an outfit of the most approved machinery bas been provided. The picking of olives is also made the subject of instruction and investigation.

Entomological Laboratories. The elementary laboratory is equipped with the usual apparatus such as microscopes, microtomes, breeding cages, etc., and the research laboratories have been well equipped for many lines of investigation.

Bacteriology and Veterinary Science. The laboratories for instruction and investigation in bacteriology and for the study of diseases of live stock are accommodated in a structure adjoining the Agricultural Building.

Plant Pathology. Facilities for laboratory instruction and investigation in plant diseases are at present provided in a structure adjoining the Agricultural Building, where the necessary equipment is available for this purpose.

The Unirersity Dairy. The hill lands of the University at Berkeley are used for the maintenance of a dairy herd and are furnished with barns, corrals, and a milk house with good arrangements for sanitary milk handling, the product being sold to local consumers.

The Experiment Station and Sub-Stations of the College of Agriculture make provision for systematic experimentation in the culture of the various farm products of Cailfornia. There are at present eight stations at which this work is prosecuted.

The Central Station at Berkeley, from which all work connected with the various sub-stations is directed, was organized in the year 1875. Portions of the University grounds are set aside for experimental culture.

The University Farm at Davis is used in part for experiment station work in Agronomy, Horticulture, Viticulture, Animal Industry, Veterinary Science, Plant Pathology, and Irrigation.

The Kearney Farm at Fresno is also used in part for experimental cultures of cereals, vines, and other crops.

The Plant Disease Laboratory and Sub-Station at Whittier is devoted to research and experiment in the nature and control of plant diseases and in the culture of fruits and vegetables. This sub-station was provided by the legislature of 1905. A building for laboratory and office purposes was completed in 1907. A special publication giving details of the building and its operation is available.

The Citrus Erperiment Station at Riverside is devoted to experimental and variety cultures of various species and varieties of the citrus group of plants and a new building soon to be erected will be used for laboratory and office purposes.

The Imperial Valley Sub-Station (not yet officially located) will be used for experimental cultures of interest in the region concerned.

Two Forestry Stations, one at Santa Monica, Los Angeles County, the other near Chico, Butte County, are used for experimental growing of trees likely to be of practical value in this State. The management of these stations was transferred to the University by the legislature in 1893.

Co-operative Erperiments.-In addition to work at formal establishments the divisions of the experiment station use private lands in cooperative experiments of various kinds for which individuals or communities provide for local expenditures.

Experiment Station Publications.- To obtain a list of lab publications apply to the Director for the latest bulletin which contains the list desired.

HARMON GYMNASIUM. The Gymnasium, presented to the University by the late A. K. P. Harmon, is well equipped, and provides all the students with opportunities for physical culture. Besides the main hall, rowing room, and athletic

quarters, there are one hundred and sixty-five shower-baths, and two thousand lockers.

The exercises in the gymnasium are conducted systematically under the supervision of the Professor of Physical Culture.

HEARST HALL. Hearst Hall was presented to the University by Mrs. Phoebe A. Hearst for a Women's Gymnasium. It contains the very best of modern equipment, with special facilities to overcome deformities and to correct physical defects. In a separate building, and connected with the gymnasium, are one hundred shower-baths, with hot and cold water. There are two hundred dressing-rooms, and nine hundred lockers. The lower hall is used as a general gathering place for the women of the University.

Connected with the gymnasium is an enclosed court, 150 feet long and 80 feet wide, with a seating capacity of one thousand, also the gift of Mrs. Hearst. It is used as an outdoor gymnasium, as well as for basketball and other games suitable for women.
