PHYSICS.

ELMER EDGAR HALL, Ph.D., Instructor in Physics.
BRUCE VICKROY HILL, Ph.D., Instructor in Physics.
ROBERT BUTLER, Assistant in Physics.

ALBERT NELSON SHELDON, Assistant in Physics.
HIRAM FRANKLIN SHELDON, B.S., Assistant in Physics.
PERCY ELLIOTT ROWELL, Student Assistant in Physics.

The physical laboratories will be open daily, except Saturdays from 9 to 12 and from 1 to 4. Students who choose courses in Physics are strongly advised to devote enough time to this subject to secure a real gain from the effort.

The laboratory fee will be $5.00.

1. Laboratory Exercises in Matriculation Physics.

Mr. A. N. SHELDON.

A series of laboratory exercises intended to supplement defective preparation for the matriculation examination in Physics. Approved work in this course will carry credit for the laboratory part of the requirement; but the examination upon principles must be regularly taken in August or January.

M Tu W Th F, 9-12; 1-4. 1 and 2 East Hall.

2. General Physics-Mechanics, Properties of Matter, and Heat. Dr. HILL.

Equivalent to the laboratory exercises of the Freshman course; credit to the extent of approving the notebooks will be given accordingly. Full credit for the Freshman course cannot be obtained unless examination upon both laboratory work and recitations is taken with the regular class in college. Admission to the course presupposes the satisfaction of the matriculation requirement in Physics. But other students of maturity and earnest purpose will be admitted at the discretion of the instructor.

M Tu W Th F, 9-12; 1-4. 1 and 2 East Hall.

3. General Physics-Sound, Light, and Electricity.

Dr. HILL.

Equivalent to the laboratory course for Sophomores in college. Admission to this course will be confined to those who have, substantially, covered the ground of the Freshman course in Physics. It is especially intended to offer this opportunity to attendants upon previous summer courses. If the notebook is approved, and the regular college examination with the corresponding class is passed, college credit may be obtained for this work.

M Tu W Th F, 9-12; 1-4. 4 East Hall.

4. Advanced Laboratory.

Dr. HALL.

Laboratory work along special lines, offering opportunities for work of really advanced character. This course is especially planned for attendants upon previous summer courses. It is not intended for the removal of deficiencies in regular University courses. Open to qualified students, after consultation and arrangements made individually with Dr. Hall. Credit may be given at the discretion of the department.

M Tu W Th F, 9-12; 1-4. 7 South Hall.

5. Selected Topics in Experimental Physics.

Dr. HALL.

Four lectures a week with experimental illustration. This course is designed primarily for teachers of Physics. Numerous experiments which may be performed with simple appliances will be presented, and in addition topics connected with the more recent developments in Physics. Many of these topics have not yet found their way into the text books and are to be found only in the current journals. Opportunity will thus be given, in connection with this course, to make use of original sources of information.

Open to qualified students after consultation with Dr. Hall.

Lectures, Tu Th, 9. 25 Chemistry Building. 4. Physical and Advanced Inorganic Chemistry. Dr. COTTRELL.

Laboratory work with occasional lectures and discussions. While the emphasis will be laid upon the inorganic side, an elementary knowledge of organic chemistry will be presupposed. In general, an attempt will be made to adapt the work as far as possible to individual needs, and qualified students may arrange to devote their whole time to a problem in research.

Open to students who have completed Chemistry courses 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 of the regular sessions, or their equivalent. 5. Recent Developments in Chemical Theories.
