ADMISSION.

Every applicant for admission to the college must bring himself within one of the following classes:

He must either be a graduate of the University of California or

He must hold an academic degree from some institution of learning of repute; or

He must be a graduate, and recommended by the principal as such, of either a high school or private school which is accredited to the University of California, the applicant having completed four years altogether of high school work or its equivalent, including the Latin hereinbelow set out; or

In lieu of high school credentials, the applicant may present himself for entrance examinations in the subjects of the high school course, this examination to include the following:

Elementary Latin. (a) Translation of easy prose into English. The examination will cover the translation into idiomatic English of the subject matter and implied grammar of selected passages from Caesar's Gallic War, Books I-IV; but accredited schools may use an equivalent Latin text and are encouraged to increase the amount of reading indicated by adding work from Gradatim, Viri Romae, Nepos, or other books of Caesar. There should be some training in translation at sight from easy authors.

(b) Translations of simple English into Latin prose. This require ment pre-supposes familiarity with the usual forms and ordinary con structions of the language. Continued training in translating detached sentences illustrative of constructions, and of connected sentences based on ('aesar or an equivalent author, together with a thorough grammatical drill on the work read, is a proper preparation for satisfying this require ment.

Advanced Latin. Translation of Latin of average difficulty, and of English narrative into Latin prose.

(a) Third-year Latin. The examination will include the translation into idiomatic English of average passage from ('icero's Orations against Catiline, for Archias, and for Pompey's Military Command, and a seler: tion from some other speech of Cicero to test ability in sight translation. The examination will also include questions on the usual forms and ordinary constructions of the language and on the subject matter of the authors read. The English passage offered for translation into Latin will be a paraphrase from one of Cicero's orations, and this requirement calls

[ocr errors][ocr errors]

for systematic training in Latin prose composition in connection with the reading. Accredited schools may read any equivalent Latin prose text, and are urged to add to the minimum outlined above Sallust 's ('atiline and additional orations of Cicero.

(b) Fourth-year Latin. The examination will be based upon Virgil's Aeneid, Books I-IV and with the addition of prosody, the scope of the examination will be similar to that outlined above for the third-year work. But the examination in Latin composition will be based also on ('iceronian Latin, and schools may well give attention to the thorough grammatical review provided for in the best manuals of Latin composition. The stronger schools are urged to add to the. Aeneid, the Eclogues or Georgies, or some reading in Ovid. The test for translation at sight will be from poetry and not from prose.

It is to be especially noted that this last requirement will be increased from May 16, 1912, to May 15, 1913, by adding thereto the equivalent of the work of the first year of an academic college of the University, making the work necessary for admission in August, 1912, at least five Tears altogether of high school and college work, as at present organized; and that from and after May 1.5, 1913, an additional year of college work will be required, making the requirement for admission in and after August, 1913, the possession of the Junior Certificate in an academic college in this l'niversity or other credentials equivalent thereto, the said certificate representing at least six years altogether of properly selected high school and college work, as at present organized.

A detailed statement of the requirements for the Junior ('ertificate is contained in the Circular of Information conce

ncerning the Academic ('olleges to be obtained upon application to the Recorder of the Faculties, l'niversity of California, Berkeley, ('alifornia.

Applicants for admission to the Junior (lass must be at least eighteen years of age, and must be shown to be of good moral character.

Applicants for admission to the Middle ('lass must be at least nineteen years of age; must comply with the conditions required to enter the Junior ('lass, and must pass an examination in all the studies of the junior year.

Applicants for admission to the Senior Class must be at least twenty years of age; must comply with the conditions required to enter the Junior Class; and must pass an examination in all the studies of the junior and middle years.

Members of the bar may, in the discretion of the Dean, be admitted as special students.

The examinations for admissions are held at the times and places announced for holding the entrance examinations to the Academic Colleges of the University at Berkeley. Applicants will not be examined at any other time unless for reasons of the most exceptional urgency. Further information concerning the examinations can be obtained from the Recorder of the Faculties of the University of California, Berkeley, Cali. fornia.

No applicant for admission to either the Middle Class or Senior Class will be examined for admission at any other time than at the beginning of the college year.

Further information can be obtained from the Dean or the Registrar.
