HENRY N. YOUNG, Assistant in Physics.

The laboratory fee is $7.50. 1. Elements of Physics.

Mr. ABBOTT. A first course in physics designed to present the essential facts and

principles of each of the main subdivisions of the subject and illustrate their connection with the facts and processes of every-day life. Lectures, with experimental illustration by the instructor; recitations and laboratory exercises daily. Credit for matriculation Physics 11 will be given for the

satisfactory completion of the course. M Tu W Th F, 9 and 1. 13 South Hall.

M Tu W Th F, 10-12, 2-4. 1 East Hall. 2. Sound.

Assistant Professor WATSON. Experimental lectures illustrating the principles of

sound. Origin, propagation, reflection, interference, refraction, and diffraction of sound waves; vibrations of strings, gas columns, rods and plates; methods for determining the intensity of sound; use of the telephone, the telephonograph, and instruments for recording and reproducing sound; acoustics of

buildings; experimental phonetics. 2 units. M Tu W Th F, 10. 13 South Hall. 3. Harmonic Motion.

Assistant Professor WATSON.
A discussion of simple and damped harmonic motions, forced

vibrations and beats, with applications to vibrating systems.
This course may be combined profitably with Course 2.
ton's text-book on Sound will be used.

Students electing this course should have a knowledge of elementary calculus.

1 unit. MW F, 11. 13 South Hall. 4. Course for Teachers.

Assistant Professor WATSON. This course presents the practical problems of teaching physics,

especially in the high school. The selection of text-book s and experiments; the ordering and manipulation of apparatus; practical methods of instruction; the new ideas of tea ching physics as discussed by different associations of tea chers.

GEOGRAPHY.

RULIFF S. HOLWAY, A.B., M.S., Assistant Professor of Physical

Geography.
Earle G. LINSLEY, M.S., Instructor in Geography.

1m. Physiography of California.

Assistant Professor Holway and Mr. LINSLEY. A study of the physical features and climate of the seven physio

graphic provinces of California, particularly in reference to the effect of environment on the life of the people. Illustrated by models and lantern slides. The last three weeks will be given to the San Francisco Bay region, the lectures

being supplemented by excursions. 1 or 2 units. First three weeks-M Tu W Th F, 9. 113 California Hall.

Second three weeks—M Tu W Th, 9; Excursions Friday and

Saturday; 113 California Hall.
Students may register for either three weeks.

25. Teachers' Course.

Assistant Professor HOLWAY. Discussion of methods of teaching, with individual conferences;

special attention to the following: (1) The selection and use of science experiments to illustrate Physical Geography in ninth grade classes; (2) omission of technical portions of modern text-books; (3) methods of conducting field excursions; (4) adapting the Physical Geography course to the local environment of the high school. Graduate credit may

be obtained by properly qualified students. 1 unit. Half course, first three weeks. M Tu W Th F, 1-3. Geography Laboratory, 51 North Hall.

3M. Field Excursion to Mt. Shasta. Assistant Professor HOLWAY. Up the Sacramento Valley to Mt. Shasta, the trip being made by

boat from San Francisco to Red Bluff, thence by rail to Sisson. Stops will be made to see the reclaimed islands, old ox-bow cut-offs of the river, the levee system, the old Sutter Fort (1839) at Sacramento, the reservoir site of Iron Canyon Reclamation Project at Red Bluff, and the dissected lava flow at Shasta Retreat. Some work will be done at the foot of Mt. Shasta and then camp will be made on the mountain at an elevation of 6,000 to 7,000 feet. An opportunity will be given to climb the mountain. Registration should be made with the instructor in charge by June 15 to insure proper accommodations. For further details concerning equipment and expenses, applicants for this course are requested to write directly to Professor Holway, P. O. Box 215, Berkeley,

California. Half course, second three weeks, July 11 to July 30. Preferably without credit. It may be possible for properly quali

fied students to get major or graduate credit. Students who desire credit should consult the instructor.

CHEMISTRY.

WILLIAM C. MORGAN, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Chemistry.
JOHN D. CLARK, M.S., Associate Professor of Chemistry, University

of New Mexico.
WILLIAM V. CRUESS, Assistant in Chemistry.

The chemical laboratories will be open daily, except Saturdays, from 9 to 12 and from 1 to 4. A deposit of $15 will be required of all students taking laboratory courses; of this sum $10 will be retained for cost of materials, and the balance, after deducting for apparatus broken or lost, will be refunded.

1. Elementary Chemistry.

Assistant Professor BIDDLE

and Associate Professor CLARK. 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. M Tu W Th F, 11. 217 Chemistry Building.

2m. Advanced Chemistry.

Assistant Professor BIDDLE. The opportunity will be given to a limited number of properly

qualified students to undertake experimental work of an advanced character in organic and inorganic chemistry. This may take the form of the study of special problems of an original character. University credit, not to exceed three

units, may be given for the course. Hours to be arranged.

3m. Problems of Modern Chemistry. Assistant Professor BIDDLE. A seminar for teachers and students interested in applied chem

istry. The atomic hypothesis; the ionic hypothesis; catalysis; the fixation of nitrogen; the rare earths, and their uses; industrial alcohol; the employment of high temperatures, etc,
