ASTRONOMY

Robert G. AITKEN, M.A., Sc.D., Astronomer in Lick Observatory, Mount

Hamilton, California.

1. General Astronomy.

Dr. AITKEX. An introductory course giving the facts and principles underlying the

science of astronomy in all of its branches. Special attention will be given to the more important problems of present day astronomy, the work in progress at the great observatories of the world, and the aims of astronomical research. The course is designed to meet the needs of students who intend to continue the study of astronomy in the University, as well as of those who desire simply a general knowledge of the subject. Lantern slides will be used freely to illustrate the lectures. Students will be expected to pro vide themselves with Young's “Lessons in Astronomy," latest

edition. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 9. 1 Observatory.

103. Teacher's Course.

Dr. AITKEN. The topics to be presented will include: methods of teaching the prin

ciples of astronomy in the high school; methods of conducting observing classes, with or without astronomical instruments; praetice in the use of the instruments of the observatory; suggestions for numerical exercises; a discussion of the standard textbooks and of the current literature of the science. Special attention will be given to methods of making useful observations with simple

apparatus. 2 units. Three lectures and one observing period per week. Hours to be

arranged when the class meets for organization, Monday, June 23, 1913, at 10 o'clock, 11 Observatory. Open to students who are taking course 1 or who have had its equivalent.

BOTANY

THOMAS H. GOODSPEED, Ph.D., Instructor in Botany.
A. H. AYRES, M.A., Head of the Science Department, Carson City High

School, Nevada.
Roy E. CLAUSEN, B.S., Assistant in Botany.

ELEMENTARY BOTANY Courses 1, 2, and 3 are offered with a view to meeting the needs of two classes of students who, in both cases, desire elementary lecture and laboratory instruction in botany. For students desiring matriculation credit in botany, or those for whom elementary botany is prescribed in the College of Agriculture, or for students planning to take up advanced botany during the regular sessions, the following arrangement of courses is advised:

Courses 1 and 2 to be taken together. In such cases they will be accepted as the full equivalent of Botany 2 (General Plant Physiology) as given during the regular sessions.

Or courses 1 and 3 to be taken together. They will be accepted as the full equivalent of Botany 3 (General Plant Morphology) as given during the regular sessions.

Students other than those named above may obtain credit in any or all of these three courses with the unit values below stated.

1. General Botany.

Dr. GOODSPEED and Mr. AYRES. Morphology, physiology, and ecology of flowering plants with special

emphasis upon the influence of external conditions on growth and formation and heredity and variation. Lectures, illustrated as far as possible by preparations and demonstration experiments, supplementary reading in assigned textbook and written reports.

2 units. M Tu W Th F, 8. 8 Botany Building.

2. Plant Physiology.

Dr. GOODSPEED and Mr. AYRES. Experimental investigation of the fundamental life processes of the

plant, with special reference to the relation of the plant to its environment. Laboratory exercises with informal lectures. Twenty students only can be accommodated in a single laboratory section; if necessary a second laboratory section will be formed. Labora

tory fee, $2.50. 2 units. Tu Th, 9 to 12. 8 Botany Building.

3. Morphology of Flowering Plants. Dr. GOODSPEED and Mr. AYRES. Laboratory studies designed to acquaint the student with the principal

plant structures and with certain modifications of these principal structures for special functions. Class field work, individual field work and, if possible, training in the classification of California plants with the aid of local flora and keys. Laboratory fee, $2.50.

2 units. Tu Th, 1 to 4. 2 Botany Building.

ADVANCED BOTANY In courses 104 and 105 opportunity will be given to properly prepared students to undertake advanced laboratory work in botany. Graduate students may make special arrangements for pursuing individual research work along the general lines indicated in courses 104 and 105; in such cases the proper graduate credit will be given. The satisfactory completion of a sufficient amount of work in course 104 will, further, be accepted as the equivalent of Botany 109A (Vegetable Histology) as given during the regular session.

104. Vegetable Histology and Cytology. Dr. GOODSPEED and Assistants. A laboratory course in the microscopical anatomy of the higher plants

together with a study of the anatomy and physiology of the cell; cell division, fertilization, and a consideration of heredity and development from the standpoint of cytology Laboratory fee, $2.50. Hours and credit to be arranged. 4 Botany Building.

105. Advanced Plant Physiology.

Dr. GOODSPEED and Assistants. Special problems, assigned readings and written reports. Open only to

properly prepared students who have completed Botany 2 and 3 as given during the regular session or during the Summer Sessions or a suitable equivalent. Laboratory fee, $2.50. Hours and credit to be arranged. 4 Botany Building.

CHEMISTRY

EUGENE P. Schoch, Ph.D., Professor of Chemistry, University of Texas.
WALTER C. BLASDALE, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Chemistry.
GERALD E. K. BRANCH, M.S., Teaching Fellow in Chemistry.
ELMER W. GRUER, B.S., Instructor in Chemistry, University of New

Mexico.
Thomas D. STEWART, Assistant in Chemistry.

The chemical laboratories will be open daily, except Saturdays, from 8 a.m. to 12 m., and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. A deposit of $15.00 will be required of all students taking laboratory courses; of this sum $10.00 will be retained for cost of materials, and the balance, after deducting for apparatus broken or lost, will be refunded.

1. Elementary Chemistry.

Professor SCHOCH, Associate Professor BLASDALE, and Mr. BRANCH. An introduction to general chemistry, with especial reference to those

facts and principles which form an essential part of a general education. Daily lectures, experimentally illustrated, and experimental work carried on by the student. Credit for matriculation Chemistry 12b will be given for a satisfactory completion of the

course.

Lectures, M Tu W Th F, 11. 217 Chemistry Building.

2. Elements of Organic Chemistry.

Mr. BRANCH. An introduction to the study of carbon compounds; equivalent to

Chemistry 8a given in the regular session. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 9. 217 Chemistry Building.
