farm crops-weeds, diseases, insects, and their control. Systems of cropping, choice and rotation of crops, etc. Feeds and feeding-function of food materials, digestibility of feeds, balanced rations, etc. Types and care of farm animals in so far as time permits; farm management, farm records and accounts.

These topics as treated in Warren's "Elements of Agriculture,” together with the laboratory and garden or field exercises and collateral reading suggested therein, constitute the basis for matriculation credit in this subject. A note-book of laboratory and garden or field exercises, properly certified by the teacher, should be presented as a part of the entrance examination.

Constant experimental work is essential and the aim should be to establish thereby a clear conception in the minds of the pupils of the fundamental principles underlying the essential processes of plant and animal production. The course may advantageously be preceded by work in General Science or Physical Geography and Botany.

Either half-year of the above course may be taken independently as indicated below.

19. Agriculture, Soils, and Soil-Fertility. (11⁄2 units.)

These topics are treated in Warren's "Elements of Agriculture," chapters I-VI, together with the exercises and collateral reading as indicated therein, with laboratory note-book.

19. Farm Crops, Farm Animals and Farm Management. (11⁄2 units.)

These topics as treated in Warren's "Elements of Agriculture," chapters VII-XVIII, together with the exercises and collateral reading as indicated therein, with laboratory note-book.

20a. Economic Geography. (11⁄2 units.)

Five periods a week for one half-year. Credit will be given only in connection with credit for Subject 12e (physical geography).

Economic Geography should be considered as an aspect of general geography, rather than as a distinct branch of the science. It should include the general principles of mathematical, physical, and biological geography. While including a study of countries, products, trade routes, etc., the chief emphasis of the course should be placed on the relations which exist between the fundamental principles of geography and the economic interests of man.

206. Commercial and Industrial History. (3 units.)

Credit will be given only in conjunction with credit for Subject 13a (Mediaeval and Modern History).

This subject should comprise, in broad outline, the development of commercial and industrial activities in the western world. It should discuss such subjects as the economic inheritance from Rome and the East; the gradual renewal of trading activity after the Teutonic invasions; the revival of commerce under Arab influence; the growth from village to town economy; the Renaissance in Italy and the commercial supremacy of

the city republies; the Age of Discovery and the development of economic "nationalities''; the industrial revolution and the conception of international division of labor; modern international trade and its significance, etc., etc. Emphasis should be laid on the interaction of political and economic factors in the growth of Western civilization; on the evolution and decay of economic institutions'; and on "movements" rather than the facts of any particular period.

20c. Bookkeeping. (3 units.)

A knowledge of the principles of double entry bookkeeping, based on five double periods weekly for one year, or its equivalent. This is to be supplemented by a test, to be given by the University, of proficiency in opening, keeping, and closing simple sets of books.

20d. Stenography and Typewriting. (3 or 6 units.)

Work in these subjects normally covering one year will be given a credit of 3 units; the work of two years will be given a credit of 6 units, with the following conditions:

Not more than one-fourth of the accredited work is to be typewriting. Proficiency tests will be required at the University. For 3 units credit, the student must show ability to take stenographic dictation at the rate of 75 words per minute. For 6 units, the rate is 125 words per minute. The student must also show ability to transcribe notes satisfactorily on the typewriter.

21. Music. For the present, and until the schools of the State are prepared to give systematic instruction in Music, credit in this subject will be given only by examination at the University.

21a. History of Music, Notation, Sight Reading, and Dictation. (3 units.)

An outline history of the development of the musical art, including at least the following: the forms of the Greek scales; church music from the time of Gregory; the Netherland School of Polyphony; the opera and oratorio; together with biographical sketches of Palestrina, Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin and Wagner.

Reasonable proficiency in sight reading is required; also the ability to write in musical notation any simple melody when played or sung.

21b. Practice in Choral Singing.

The masterpieces of choral composition should be used. Credit will be given in this at the rate of one unit for two hours' rehearsal per week for one year, or one rehearsal per week for two years.

21c. Elements of Harmony and Composition. (3 units.)

Notation; formation of diatonic and chromatic scales in major and minor modes; consonant and dissonant intervals and their inversions; triads and their inversions in major and minor modes; chords of the dominant seventh and ninth and their inversions; resolution of the dominant seventh; progressions of the secondary chords of the seventh; a study of chord connection and voice-leading from a given bass; modula

tion and transposition, the harmonizing of simple melodies; suspensions, retardations and embellishments and their use in the construction of melodies over a given bass; the analysis of standard compositions.

21d. Musical Technique and Interpretation. (3 units.)

As musical technique has for its only justification the intelligent interpretation of the composer's ideas, interpretation will be strongly emphasized in these examinations.

The ability to perform, with satisfactory technique and intelligent interpretation, on either the pianoforte or violin, or to sing, with satisfactorily placed and developed voice, compositions such as the following:

(a) Pianoforte: One of the easy fugues by Bach; a sonata by Beethoven, (Opus 13, Pathétique); Aufschwung; Opus 12, by Schumann; Prelude No. 15, by Chopin.

(b) Violin: A sonata by Mozart with piano; Romance, by Svendson; and a modern composition selected by the applicant.

(c) Voice: Songs by Mozart, Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Franz, MacDowell, or another American composer.

In lieu of the above requirements, exceptional skill in technique and interpretation with any one of the orchestral stringed or wind instruments may be accepted.



Times and Places of Examination.

Matriculation examinations are held in August and in January of each year; but the examinations in January are primarily for the purpose of enabling students in the University to remove matriculation deficiencies. Applicants for admission who present certificates from their teachers that they are prepared in the subjects they offer will be admitted to the January examinations. Such certificates must be filed with the Recorder of the Faculties before the examinations.

No person save a registered student of the University will be allowed to take any matriculation examination without having first filed an applieation for admission.

In 1912 examinations will be held at Berkeley on August 8, 9, 10, 12, and 13. The University may conduct matriculation examinations at the same time in any city or at any school where the number of candidates and the distance from other places of examination may warrant it. Applications for this purpose should be sent to the Recorder of the Faculties by mail, not later than June 1.

A circular regarding the matriculation examinations may be obtained by addressing the Recorder of the Faculties.

College Entrance Examination Board.

Certificates of successful examinations before the College Entrance Examination Board will be accepted in lieu of matriculation examinations conducted by the University of California in all of the preparatory subjects; but at present the Board holds no examination covering the ground of English 14b.

In June, 1911, the entrance examinations of the College Entrance Examination Board were held June 19-24.

All applications for examination must be addressed to the Secretary of the College Entrance Examination Board, Postoffice Sub-station 84, New York, N. Y., and must be made upon a blank form to be obtained from the Secretary of the Board upon application.

Applications for examination at points in the United States east of the Mississippi River, also at Minneapolis, St. Louis, and other points on the Mississippi River, must be received by the Secretary of the Board at least two weeks in advance of the examinations. In 1911, this was on or before Monday, June 5; applications for examination elsewhere in the United States or in Canada must be received at least three weeks in advance of the examinations. In 1911, this was on or before Thursday, May 29; and applications for examinations outside of the United States and Canada must be received at least five weeks in advance of the examinations. In 1911, this was on or before Monday, May 15.

Applications received later than the dates named will be accepted when it is possible to arrange for the admission of the candidates concerned, but only upon the payment of $5 in addition to the usual fee.

The examination fee is $5 for all candidates examined at points in the United States and Canada and $15 for all candidates examined outside of the United States and Canada. The fee (which cannot be accepted in advance of the application) should be remitted by postal order, express order, or draft on New York to the order of the College Entrance Examination Board.

A list of the places at which examinations were held by the Board in June, 1911, was published about March 1. Requests that the examinations be held at particular points, to receive proper consideration, should be transmitted to the Secretary of the Board not later than February 1.

Dividing of Matriculation Examinations.

An applicant for admission may, if he prefers, take his matriculation examinations in two parts-(a) Preliminary, (b) Final-but not more than

two. The preliminary examination may be taken either in August or January. The final examination must be taken not later than 18 months after the preliminary examination. The applicant may divide his examinations in any way that he prefers, provided that he passes the required 45 units during the two examination periods taken together. Applicants who are twenty-one years of age or who have been graduated from fouryear courses in high schools or other secondary schools are not subject to the above limitations as to the division of examinations, but they may take their examinations at such times as they prefer until all of the required examinations shall have been passed. For the purpose of division between two series of examinations, the examinations given in June by the College Entrance Examination Board and those in August given by the University in the same year may count as one series, the applicant, at his option, taking a part in June and a part in August.


Admission from accredited schools is regulated by the following Order of the Regents, passed March 4, 1884, and amended September 10, 1895, and January 10, 1905.

"Upon the request of the principal of any public or private school in California whose course of study embraces, in kind and extent, the subjects required for admission to any college of the University at Berkeley, a committee of the Academic Senate will visit such school, and report upon If the report of such comthe quality of the instruction there given. mittee be favorable, a graduate of the school, upon the personal recommendation of the Principal, accompanied by his certificate that the graduate has satisfactorily completed the studies of the course prepratory to the college he wishes to enter, may, at the discretion of the Faculty of such college, be admitted without examination.

"Principals' applications made in accordance with the provisions of the foregoing paragraph must be in the hands of the Recorder of the Faculties, at Berkeley, on or before the first day of December of each school year.

"Private schools receiving examination shall pay a fee of five dollars for each such visit, provided that twenty dollars shall be the maxi.num fee for more than three such visits. If a special journey be required for such visit, the expenses thereof may be assessed against such school."

No school will be accredited unless its course of study includes all the subjects required for admission to at least one of the Academic Colleges.
