GIFTS TO THE UNIVERSITY
The educational facilities of many of the State institutions of
the South have been materially increased in recent years by sub-
stantial gifts from broad-minded citizens. The University feels
confident that the citizens of Florida will not allow their State
institution to suffer in this respect. All gifts to the University, of
whatever nature or size, will be gratefully received and acknowl-
edged as contributions to the upbuilding of education and culture
in the State.

of acknowledging the generous gift of $1,000 by the General
Education Board of New York toward the establishment and
annual maintenance of a Professorship of Secondary Education
in the University. (See page 66.)

GENERAL INFORMATION

HISTORY
The University of Florida as it now exists, represents the
culmination of a movement which originated in territorial days.
The subject was discussed in the Legislative Council as early
as 1824. In the Memoirs of Florida we read: "In 1836 a Uni-
versity of Florida was proposed, of which Joseph M. White, Rich-
ard K. Call, Thomas Randall, J. G. Gamble, and others, were
named as Trustees, in the act of Congress which authorized the
sale of lands for its support." (I, 168.) This is the first official
mention which we find of a "University of Florida." Nothing,
however, came of this proposal.
Between this time and the Civil War the movement for public
education, both lower and higher, grew considerably in the State.
In 1845, when Florida was admitted to statehood, she received
from the general government nearly a hundred thousand acres of
land for the establishment of two seminaries, one east and one
west of the Suwanee River. The East Florida Seminary was
established in 1852. It was first located at Ocala, but in 1866
removed to Gainesville. The West Florida Seminary was estab-
lished at Tallahassee in 1856. However, di,;mg this period, no
institution in the State bore the title and exercised the functions
of the University of Florida.
The State Constitution adopted in 1868 contained the follow-
ing provision looking to the establishment of a State University:
"The Legislature shall provide a uniform system of common
schools and a University, and shall provide for the liberal main-
tenance of the same. Instruction in them shall be free." (Art.
VIII, Sec. 2.)
Pursuant to this action, the Legislature of 1869 passed "An
Act to Establish a Uniform System of Common Schools and a
University." Two sections of this Act are of particular interest.
It is proposed in section eleven:
"6th;--To-tse-the available income and appropriations to the
University or Seminary-Find,-in-establishing one or more depart-
ments.of-the-University-at sisch place or places as may offer the

best inducements, commencing with the Department of Teaching-
and Preparatory Department, etc., etc.
"7th. To keep in view the establishment of a University on
a broad and liberal basis, the object of which shall be to impart
instruction to youth in the professions of teaching, medicine and
the law; in the knowledge of the natural sciences; the theory
and practice of agriculture, horticulture, mining, engineering,
and the mechanic arts; in the ancient and modern languages;
in the higher range of mathematics, literature, and in the useful
and ornamental branches not taught in common schools."
The plan outlined in this section would be a credit to any
State, and shows a high ideal and purpose of which Florida may
well be proud. But, unfortunately, this ideal and purpose found
no tangible manifestation; and the State still continued without
a University.
The State Constitution of 1885 contains the following: "The
Legislature shalLprovide by general law for incorporating such
educational, agricultural, mechanical, mining, transportation, mer-
cantile, and other useful'companies or associations as may be
deemed necessary; but it shall n-ot-pass any special law on any
such subject, and any such special law shialbe.pof no effect; Pro-
vided, however, that nothing herein shall preclude'special legis-
lation as to a University or the public schools, or as to a ship canal
across the State." (Sec. 25.) This action was taken in the sum-
mer of 1885.
In the spring of-thfe-same-ear (Feb. 16th, 1885) the Legis-
lature had passed "An Act Recognizing the University..of Flor-
ida," whieh-reads-asfollows:
"Se7tinl. That the Florida University as organized at the
city of Tallahasse be recognized as the University of the State,
and be known as the University of Florida; provided, there shall
be no expense incurred by the.State by reason of this act.
"Sec. 2. That the University'continue under its present or-
ganization and officers until such further action be taken by the
State Legislature as the case may require."
It will be observed that this is "An Act Recognizing The
University of Florida." This phraseology is due to the fact that
two years before this act was passed (i. e., in 1883) the State

Board of Education had formulated a plan of consolidation or
co-ordination, in accordance with which the West Florida Semi-
nary was denominated "The Literary College of the University of
Florida." Accepting this action of the State Board, the Legis-
lature passed this "Act Recognizing the University of Florida."
It seems probable, however, that the State Board had originally
in view a somewhat different plan from that which found expres-
sion in this act of the Legislature.
Meanwhile, in 1870, the State Legislature had passed "An
Act to Establish the Florida Agricultural College," in accordance
with the Act of Congress of 1862, entitled "An Act Donating
Public Lands to the Several States and Territories which may
Provide Colleges for the Benefit of Agriculture and the Mechanic
Arts."
-For--the support of such institutions Section-1-df- Tiis act
grants to each State !an amount of public-land, to be apportioned

respectively entit~iefy the apportionment under-the census of
1860 ;_Privided, that no mineral lands shall be selected or pur-
chliased under the provisions of this act."
Jn Section 4 it is required "that all moneys, derived from the
sale ofte lands aforesaid by the States to which the'lands are
apportioned and from the sales of land scrip hereinbefore pro-
vided for, sha be invested in stocks of the United States, or of
the States, or s ze other safe stocks, yielding not less than five
per centum upon e par value of said stocks; and that the
moneys so invested shll constitute perpetual fund, the capital
Sof which shall remain 'f rever undiminished (except so far as
may be provided in Sectio fiftf of this act), and the interest of
which shall be inviolably a opriated by each State which may
take and claim the benefit/of ths act, to the endowment, support,
and maintenance of at/least one c lege where the leading object
shall be, without excludingg other scientific and classical studies,
and including/military tactics, to teach such branches of learning
as are related to agriculture and the mechanic arts, in such man-
ner as-tle Legislatures of the States may respectively prescribe,
in order to promote the liberal and practical education of the
industrial classes in the several pursuits and professions in life."

.Section 5 defines the obligations which the States assu e in
accepting these grants:
"First'... f any portion of the fund invested, as provided by
the foregoingsection, or any portion of the interest thereon, shall,
by any action 6r contingency, be diminished or/lost, it shall be
replaced by the Sate to which it belongs so that the capital of
the fund shall remain foever undiminished,;'and the annual inter-
est shall be regularly app ied without diminution to the purpose
mentioned in the fourth section of t~is act, except that a sum not
exceeding ten per centum upon the amount received by any State
under the provisions of this act, may be expended for the pur-
chase of lands for sites or,experimentil farms, whenever author-
ized by the respective Legislatures of said States.
"Second. No portion of said fund, nor'the interest thereon,
shall be applied, directly or indirectly, under any, pretense what-
ever, to thepurchase, erection, preservation, orreepair of any
building.or buildings."
Section 8 further stipulates "That the Governors oftheveral
Staes-twhich scrip shall be issued under thisad shall be re-
quired to report FR uall y -oe ngz-es.t-sal'sE made of such scrip
until the wholeshall-be-dis6osed of, the"amount received for the
same,-ain what appropriation has been made of the-proceeds."
In 1870, as already stated, the Legislature of Florida, by i-f
act entitled, "An Act to Establish the Florida Agricultural Col-
lege," accepted the Federal grant upon the conditions and under
the restrictions contained in the Act of Congress quoted above,
and thereby entered into a contract with the United States Gov-
ernment to erect and keep in repair all buildings necessary for
the use of the institution.
After decreeing the establishment of a college in accordance
with the Congressional requirements and appointing trustees for
its control, this act (Section 7) authorizes the trustees "to claim
and receive from the Secretary of the Interior the agricultural
college land scrip to which this State is entitled by Act of Con-
gress, July 2, 1862, and acts supplemental thereto."
Section-&.prescribes the disposition of the funds: ~*Ten per

In 1872 an act supplementary to the act of 1870 was passed;
and the State, having availed herself of the act of 1862, received
ninety thousand acres of land. The proceeds from the sale of
this land were invested in "The Agricultural College Fund" bonds,
the par value of which is one hundred and fifty-three thousand
and eight hundred ($153,800) dollars.
In 1873 a site for the college was selected in Alachua county,
but nothing further came of this step. In 1875 the college was
located at Eau Gallie, and a "temporary college edifice" was
erected. No educational work having been accomplished there,
the trustees, in 1878, determined to remove the college, and a
committee from the Board was appointed to decide upon a suit-
able situation. In 1883 Lake City was selected on account of its
special fitness; and, the citizens having given to the institution
one hundred acres of land and fifteen thousand ($15,000) dollars,
the college was established there. Upon the completion of the
main building in the fall of 1884, the doors of the institution were
thrown open to students.

the relationship-indicated by this statement'May be inferred from
the following statement which is found in the sare--catalogue
(1887) :







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


\"A-fthe-annuial meeting of the Board of Trustees of the
Florida Agricultural College, ield-at-the College, at Lake City,
June 17th, 1886, the following resolution was adopted:
"Resolved, That the Board of Trustees of the Florida Agri-
cultural Collegf-I.lIkc've that the educational interests of this State
would be advanced and furthered by the consolidation of the
Agricultural College and the Florida University, under the name
of the University of Florida and Agricultural College, and that
we recommend the same."
.In the catalogue of the Agricultural College for the following
year, the-statement that.Dr. Kost is "Chancellor of the University"
is dropped; but the resolution quoted-above is again printed. The
following year the resolution also disappears; aif-dthe-idea-therein---
contained seems to have become quiescent.
About this time (i. e. in 1887), in accordance with the Act of
Congress known as the Hatch Act, the Florida Agricultural
Experiment Station was established in connection with the State
Agricultural College.
Three years later the Agricultural College became a benefici-
ary of the Morrill Act. The expenditure of this sum is carefully
restricted by the Act of Congress which provides it and which
specifies the purpose for which it may be employed.
As regards the name of the institution, matters continued in
this condition until 1903. In that year the Legislature passed
"'An Act Changing the Name of the Florida Agricultural Col-
lege." The title of University had never been assumed by the
institution at Tallahassee under the provisions of the act of 1885;
and in 1903 that act was repealed, and the title was transferred
to the Agricultural College. Tl-ieact-of-1903-reads-as-follows:
"_e It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
"Section 1. That the Florida Agricultural College asat pres-
ent defined by-laavbe and is hereby changed to and shall be known
as the University of lorida.
"Sec. 2. Any law inconsistent herewth be and the same is
hereby repealed. \
"Sec. 3. This act to take effectuipon its passage and approval
by the Governor." (Approyed April 30, 1903.


/







GENERAL INFORMATION.


In accordance with this act the Agricultural College at once
assumed the title of the University of Florida, and continued its
activities without interruption for two years.
The year 1905 is memorable in the history of higher education
in the State. Besides the former Agricultural College, then
bearing the title "University of Florida," at Lake City, there
existed five other institutions of higher education, all depending
upon State support for their funds. They were: the Florida
State College at Tallahassee, the Normal School at DeFuniak
Springs, the East Florida Seminary at Gainesville, the South
Florida College at Bartow, and the Agricultural Institute in
Osceola county. These institutions had failed to make sufficient
differentiation among themselves and to separate their work
sufficiently from that of the High School system of the State.
By an act of the Legislature of 1905, this system of higher educa-
tion was drastically revised. The six institutions were reduced
to two, clearly differentiated from each other and from the High
Schools.
This act (known as the "Buckman Bill") created two co-
ordinated institutions; one for women at Tallahassee, first desig-
nated the "Florida Female College" and later the "Florida State
College for Women"; and another for men, to be known as the
"University of the State of Florida." For their management, the
act provides:
13. That there is hereby created a 'Board-of-Coiitrol'
which shall consist-offive citizens ofthis State who shall be ap-
pointed by the Governor an terms of office shall be for four
years, except that, oL-t e first board"appointedunder this act,
two members threof shall be appointed for the ternfof-two years
and three"members thereof shall be appointed for the teri-of-
four years."
The University of the State of Florida, thus established, be-
gan its scholastic work in September, 1905.
By act of the Legislature of 1909, the name of the institution
was changed to the University of Florida.







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


LOCATION
Acting under a provision of the Buckman act, to wit:
"Section 16. The Governor, as President of the State Board
of Education, shall cause a meeting of both of said boards to be
held in joint session at the capital, and at said meeting shall de-
termine the place of location of the University of the State of
Florida, etc."
The State Board of Education and the Board of Control in
joint session, on the sixth day of July, 1905, selected the city of
Gainesville as the location for the new institution.
During the scholastic year 1905-06, the work of the University
was carried on at Lake City, while buildings were in process of
erection for its accommodation at Gainesville. The University
moved into these buildings during the summer of 1906, and the
work of the Institution has since been conducted at Gainesville.
The advantages which Gainesville presents as the seat of the
State University are numerous. It is centrally located and of
easy access, being reached by the leading railroads of the State.
It has well paved, lighted and shaded streets; the water supply
is exceptionally pure, and the sewerage system good. The citizen-
ship is energetic and progressive, and frequently extends the
hospitality of its homes to the students. The Chautauqua and
Bible Conference held during the winter, are valuable adjuncts
to the University. The moral atmosphere is wholesome, and for
many years the sale of intoxicants has been prohibited by law.
GROUNDS AND BUILDINGS
The domain of the University comprises five hundred and
twenty-seven acres, situated in the western extremity of the town
of Gainesville. Of this tract, ninety acres are devoted to the
University campus, drill ground, and athletic field. Forty acres
are utilized for a farm, under the direction of the Department of
Agriculture of the University. The remainder of the land is
used by the Agricultural Experiment Station.
The buildings of the University are six in number: a main
building, a dormitory, a machine shop, a dynamo laboratory, a
science hall, and an experiment station building. They are lighted
with electricity, supplied with city water, and furnished with
modern improvements.








GENERAL INFORMATION.


The main building, known as "Thomas Hall," is a brick and
concrete structure, three stories in height, three hundred feet in
length and sixty feet in width. It contains the general offices,
library, assembly hall, dining hall, some of the class rooms, and
a few dormitory rooms.
The dormitory, known as "Buckman Hall," is a brick and
concrete structure of the same style of architecture as the main
building, three stories in height, two hundred and forty feet in
length and sixty feet in width.
The machine shop is a one-story brick building, sixty feet
long and thirty feet wide, with a wing thirty feet long and twenty
feet wide. It provides for the shop work in the engineering
courses.
The dynamo laboratory is a one-story wooden building, thirty-
five feet long and eighteen feet wide. It provides for the labora-
tory work in electrical engineering.
The science hall is a brick and concrete building of two
stories and a finished basement, one hundred and thirty-five feet
long and sixty-six feet wide. It contains the class rooms and
laboratories of the Departments of Botany and Horticulture,
Chemistry, Physics, and Zoology and Bacteriology.
The experiment station building is a brick and concrete struc-
ture, of three stories and a finished basement, one hundred and
twenty feet long and sixty feet wide. It contains the offices and
laboratories of the Agricultural Experiment Station.

ENDOWMENT
The annual income of the University, apart from legislative
appropriations, is derived principally from three sources-"The
Agricultural College Fund" bonds, yielding an annual interest
of about seventy-seven hundred ($7,700) dollars; one-half of the
"Morrill Fund," amounting now to twelve thousand five hundred
($12,500) dollars, and the "East Florida Seminary Fund,"
amounting to about two thousand ($2,000) dollars. In addition
to these funds Congress has appropriated $25,000 more to each
State for the purpose of promoting the work of institutions al-
ready beneficiaries of the Agricultural and Morrill Funds. One-
half of this amount will go to the University of Florida, but will
not be fully available until the expiration of five years, as the act








UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


of appropriation provides for an appropriation of $5,000 for the
year 1907-08, and an additional $5,000 for each of the four suc-
ceeding years. The entire annual income of the institution thus
derived from various Federal grants amounts at present to about
$27,500, and will be increased by $2,500 a year for the next three
years until it will ultimately amount to about $35,000. This does
not include the Experiment Station funds.

EQUIPMENT
Library.-The University Library numbers about twevle thou-
sand volumes, including those in the Academic, Law and Scien-
tific departments. In the Academic Library, besides general
works, are one hundred volumes on philosophical subjects, two
hundred and twenty-five on economics, one hundred and twenty
on education, one thousand seven hundred and fifty of literature,
eight hundred of general history, and two hundred of United
States history. An effort is being made to place on the shelves
all books extant relating to Florida history. Additional books
are purchased under the direction of the library committee as
fast as funds are available for that purpose.
All books in this library are catalogued and shelved according
to the Dewey system, making them readily available for refer-
ence. Students are encouraged to use the card catalogues, which
are arranged alphabetically, both according to authors and to
titles, and to become familiar with the books themselves by free
access to the stacks. The librarian or student assistants are al-
ways in attendance to explain the arrangement of books and to
give aid in reference work. A taste for good literature is being
developed in many students who have not had access to a good
library before coming here, making this one of the great advan-
tages of the college career.
As a designated depository of Federal documents, the library
receives several hundred volumes of valuable government publi-
cations each year. Files are kept of all Florida State publications,
and of the bulletins and reports of the Agricultural Experiment
Stations throughout the Union.
In the reading room are about sixty of the best general and
technical periodicals for the students' use. The back numbers
cf these are bound and kept on file, and the early volumes pur-

chased whenever they can be obtained. Here also are received
the leading newspapers of the State, and county papers are added
to the list at the request of the students.
Museum.-The museum occupies a large room on the second
floor of the new Science Hall, and contains a small but well-
selected collection of minerals; a number of fossils and casts, and
a small but representative collection of the lower forms of marine
life. Special efforts are being made to get together as complete
a collection as possible illustrating the fauna of the State.
Laboratories.-The following laboratories are maintained by
the University:
The botanical laboratory contains, enough dissecting micro-
scopes and instruments, and.B4'I.sth:ard fILom-. copepund micro-

For work in histology there are hand microtomes, section
knives, a sliding microtome, Millers' paraffin bath, and a supply
of reagents, stains and mounts, while for studies in physiology
there are germination boxes, nutrient jars, an osmometer, a
clinostat, and a number of other pieces.
An herbarium has been started, to which students each year
add specimens which they collect, identify and mount. There is a
case of reference books and periodicals in the laboratory, that it
may be within easy reach of the students.
The Chemical Laboratory is equipped with all the necessary
apparatus and material for instruction in general inorganic and
organic, analytical and industrial chemistry, as well as for ad-
vanced work in the science. It includes two delicate balances, a
latest model polariscope, microscope and spectroscope, ample
platinum ware, in the form of crucible dishes, electrodes, wire
and foil, and many special pieces of apparatus for illustrating
(upon the lecture table) chemical principles.
The equipment is entirely modern in every respect and in the
new rooms assigned to this department, can be used to the best
advantage. The stock of chemicals is abundant and complete.







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


The dynamo laboratory, providing for practical instruction on
electrical machinery, occupies a small building by itself.
The principal machines are a 2.5-KW General Electric type
IB direct current generator, a 1-HP Westinghouse type R motor,
a 1-KW synchronous motor, and two 2-KW Westinghouse type
S dynamos, designed to be used either as generators or as motors.
The switchboard panel for each machine is placed near it, but
is connected to terminals on a main distribution board for the
whole laboratory. Power is supplied by a 10-HP single-phase
Wagner induction motor, connected to the city alternating current
supply, and driving the main shaft of the laboratory. The various
machines are drivqo from this shaft, and can be thrown in or out
by friction qi'jchhe!s:.. : .

ment of Physics. Its quarters include a lecture room, 25 feet by
23 feet, with amphitheatered seats; an office and library room; a
main laboratory room, 28 by 25 feet; an electrical laboratory, 30
by 14 feet; a battery room; an optical room, 23 by 10 feet, ar-
ranged so as to be effectively darkened; a work shop; a store
room; and a private laboratory room, for research work. Water,
gas and electricity from various circuits, are led to all of the
rooms. The laboratory is provided with several brick piers, on
foundations independent of the rest of the building, for the ac-
commodation of instruments requiring special stability.
The zoological and bacteriological laboratories are well
equipped for the work of instruction. In addition to the neces-
sary glass-ware and reagents, there are a number of high grade
microscopes; dissecting microscopes; two microtomes, one for
celloidin, the other for paraffin sectioning; paraffin bath; steril-
izers, both wet and dry; warm and cool incubators; dark-ground
illuminator; balances; centrifuge; breeding cages; anatomical
preparations and models; and a number of the Leukart-Chun
zoological wall charts. The departmental library contains a

number of the current periodicals as well as the more important
text-books and reference works.
Shops.-The wood-shop is provided with lockers equipped
with full set of tools for bench-work, such as chisels, squares,
saws, gauges, etc. The wood-work machinery consists of nine
wood-turning lathes, a planer, rip-saw, and band-saw.
The machine-shop is equipped with an 18-inch Cady lathe, an
11-inch Seneca Falls lathe, a drill press, a Gray planer, a No. 1
Brown & Sharpe Universal Milling Machine, a Springfield shaper,
a small Barnes lathe, three emery wheels, grindstone, vises, ma-
chine-shop tools.
The forge shop is equipped with six power-blast forges, one
hand forge, six anvils, and a large supply of tools.
Engineering Laboratory and Field Instruments.-The lab-
oratory now contains a cement testing machine, built in our own
shops, a 50,000-lb. testing machine equipped for all ordinary tests,
weighing machines, computing instruments, etc.
The field instruments consist of three surveyors' compasses,
three wye levels, five transits, complete plane table, several small
plane tables, and a high grade sextant. The necessary rods,
chains, tapes, etc., also barometers, clinometers, pedometers, pris-
matic compasses, and range finders are all available. There is
also a camping outfit for party of twenty men. The field equip-
ment will be largely increased during the summer of 1910.
The College Farm.-The farm connected with the College of
Agriculture consists of 40 acres-about 28 acres for trucking and
general field crops, 2 acres for stock lots, 2 acres for orchard, 5
acres for pasture and 3 acres for buildings and grounds where a
hay and machinery barn stands.
The laboratory equipment in live stock is only well begun, but
the individuals of the herds are of high grade.
Athletic Equipment.-The institution has provided a hard
surfaced athletic field including football gridiron, baseball dia-
mond and ample tennis court facilities. A basket-ball court and
swimming pool are also located on the campus.
The equipment of the gymnasium represents an expenditure
of some $3,000.00 and this collection of apparatus is probably
unsurpassed in the South. All of the above is in charge of a
competent athletic director.








UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


GOVERNMENT AND REGULATIONS

ADMINISTRATION
Board of Control.-The general government of the Uni-
versity of Florida is vested by law in the Board of Control, con-
sisting of five members appointed by the Governor of Florida
from various parts of the State. Appointments to the Board of
Control are made for a term of four years.
The Board of Control directs the general policies of the Uni-
versity, supervises the expenditure of its funds, prescribes the
requirements for admission, with the advice of the president and
faculties, and confers degrees upon recommendation of the presi-
dent and faculties.
President.-The direct administration of all affairs of the
University is in the hands of the president, appointed by the Board
of Control and acting under its authority.
Deans and Directors.-For convenience of administration,
the University is organized under the following divisions: The
College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Agriculture, the
College of Engineering, the College of Law, the Division of
University Extension, and the Agricultural Experiment Station.
Each college has as its executive head a dean, chosen from the
faculty of that college; the Division of University Extension
and the Agricultural Experiment Station have as executive head
a director. These officers are responsible to the president of the
University.
Council of Administration.-The president of the University
and the deans of the several colleges and director of the Experi-
ment Station form a council of administration, with the following
functions: To lay out new lines of work, inaugurate new enter-
prises in general, and prepare the annual budget; and to act as the
judicial body of the general faculty on cases of general discipline
not under the authority of the colleges, on new courses of study
and changes in existing courses, bringing these matters before
the Board of Control, and on question of college action referred
to it by any member of the general faculty.
Faculty.-The general faculty of the University includes all
persons engaged in the work of instruction in the University,

excepting laboratory assistants and undergraduate assistants to
the professors. Under the leadership of the president it forms
the general governing body in all matters of instruction and
discipline.
The faculty of each college consists of those members of the
general faculty who give instruction in that college. It forms
the governing body in matters of instruction and discipline in its
college.
Experiment Station Staff.-The experiment station staff
consists of all persons engaged in scientific work in the Agricul-
tural Experiment Station. Under the leadership of the director,
it has authority in all matters of agricultural investigation and
their publication.
DISCIPLINE
Officers.-The immediate supervision of the general life of
the student body is in the hands of an Officer in Charge, who
occupies quarters in the dormitory.
In each section of the dormitory a monitor maintains a gen-
eral oversight and makes reports to the Officer in Charge. Moni-
tors are appointed from among those students who are more than
twenty-one years old.
Offenses Against Good Conduct.-Any offense against good
conduct, in the ordinary meaning of the words, renders a student
liable to discipline, whether or not a formal rule against the
offense has been published.
The following offenses will be treated with especial severity:
Disrespect to an officer of the University; wanton destruction of
property; gambling; debauchery or drunkenness, or having in-
toxicating liquors in possession on the University grounds.
Hazing.-Students will be required on matriculating to sign
a pledge to refrain from hazing.
The Honor System.-Every student of the University is
assumed to be a man of honor, and his word is accepted on all
matters. In such rare cases as a student may prove not to be a
man of honor, he is expelled, either by action of the faculty, or
by action of the Board of Governors of the student body, con-
sisting of the presidents of the four academic classes.
Absences from the University.-No undergraduate student is
permitted to be absent from the University over night without







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


written permission from the Officer in Charge. As a rule, such
permission is granted only upon written request from the parent
or guardian of the student.
Attendance Upon Duties.-A student who without good
cause persistently absents himself from his University duties, is,
after due warning, dishonorably dismissed for the remainder of
the academic year. A student who, by reason of ill health or
outside demands upon his time, finds it impossible to give regu-
lar attention to University duties, is requested to withdraw; but
such request does not in any way reflect upon his good standing.
All delinquencies in University duties are reported to the
Officer in Charge, who promptly brings them to the attention of
the students, and requires a prompt explanation to be made.
Careful records of all delinquencies are kept.

REGULATIONS CONCERNING STUDIES
Quantity of Work.-Every undergraduate student must take
studies requiring at least 15 hours of recitations per week, or
equivalent time in laboratory courses. No student may take
more than twenty-three hours per week, except by special per-
mission of the faculty of his college.
In counting hours, two hours of laboratory work are consid-
ered equivalent to one hour of recitation.
Avoidance of Conflicts.-Studies must be so chosen as not to
conflict, as shown on the printed schedule for the year.
Assignment to Classes.-Every student must appear before
the Committee on Classification at the beginning of each aca-
demic year for assignment to classes. An individual instructor
has no authority to enroll a student in any course, except as
authorized by the Committee on Classification.
Choice of Studies.-The choice as to which one of the vari-
ous curricula is to be pursued rests entirely with the individual
student, subject to considerations of proper preparation; but the
group of studies to be taken must be those belonging to one of
the regular years in the chosen curriculum exactly as announced
in the catalogue, unless special reasons exist for deviating from
this arrangement.
Conditions.-A student who is prepared to take up most of
the studies of a certain year in the regular curriculum, but is







GENERAL INFORMATION.


deficient in some studies, will be permitted to proceed with the
work of that year. Such a student is said to be conditioned; he
is permitted to proceed subject to the condition that he make up
the studies in which the deficiency occurs. This should be done,
when possible, by study with a private tutor, and examination as
soon as the work is completed; but it may be done by pursuing
the studies in question with a lower class in the University, and
the Committee on Classification has authority to require it to be
done in that way when such procedure seems best. In every
case, provision for all of the lower studies must be made before
any of the higher studies may be taken; and in the event of con-
flicts on the schedule, or excessive quantity of work, higher studies
must give way to lower.
Extra Studies.-By special permission from the dean of his
college, a student may take extra studies in addition to those
prescribed in his regular curriculum, provided that can be done
without conflicting with a regular study or exceeding the maxi-
mum number of hours of study. Such permission is not, as a
rule, granted to any conditioned student; and it may be with-
drawn from any student in the event of failure in any of the
regular studies.
Special Students.-Students who may desire to take special
courses will be allowed, upon recommendation of the Committee
on Classification, to take those classes for which they may be
prepared. Such students are subject to all the laws and regula-
tions of the University. These special courses do not lead to any
regular degree.
The purpose of permitting students to take special courses,
other than those regularly offered, is merely to provide for the
occasional exceptional requirements of individual students; and
any abuse of this privilege, for the sake of avoiding regular
studies which may be distasteful, can not be tolerated. Accord-
ingly, no minor student is permitted to enter as a special student
except upon written request of his parent or guardian.
Classification of Irregular Students.-A student is deemed
to belong to that class in which the majority of his hours of work
lie. But a special student is not considered as belonging to any
of the regular classes.







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


Changes in Studies.-After a student is once registered, he
is not permitted to discontinue any class, or to begin any addi-
tional one, without special permission from the dean of his col-
lege.
Grades and Reports.-Each instructor keeps a record of the
quality of work done by each student in his classes, and assigns
grades, on the scale of 100. At the end of each month the
average grades for the month are reported to the office of the
University for permanent record and for entry upon a monthly
report to the parent or guardian of each student.
If the monthly grades show that any student is not doing
satisfactory work, he may be required to drop some of his studies
and substitute studies in a lower class, or he may be required to
withdraw from the University.
Examinations.-At the end of each semester regular ex-
aminations are held on all of the work of that semester.
Failures in Studies.-A final grade for each semester's work
is assigned, based upon the examination and the monthly grades.
If this grade falls below 60 for any student, he is considered to
have failed, and may proceed only subject to a condition in the
study in which failure has occurred.
ATHLETICS
General Policy.-It is the policy of the University to foster
clean, amateur athletics, but not to tolerate professionalism in
its athletics.
Absences on Account of Athletics.-The members of regu-
lar athletic teams, together with necessary substitutes and mana-
ger, are permitted to be absent from University duties for such
time as may be clearly necessary to take part in games away from
Gainesville. All class-work missed on account of an athletic trip
must be made up as promptly as possible after returning, at such
hours as may be arranged by the various instructors.
Schedule of Games.-The schedule of games must be ar-
ranged so as to interfere as little as possible with university
duties, and must receive the approval of the Committee on Ath-
letics.
Eligibility to Athletic Teams.-Any team playing under the
name of the University of Florida must be composed exclusively
of genuine students in good standing in the University. A list







EXPENSES.


of the players and substitutes for each game must be submitted
to the Committee on Athletics before that game, and must re-
ceive its approval. Negligence of duties, or failure in studies,
excludes a student from the right to play on a team representing
the University.
No student is permitted to play on any of the regular teams,
who is not in proper physical condition, in the opinion of the
University physician. No minor student is permitted to play if
his parent or guardian objects to his doing so.
MEDALS
Medals are offered in the University (1) For the best drilled
man in the whole battalion; (2) For the best declaimer in the
Freshman and Sophomore Classes; (3) For the best original
oration in the Junior Class of any college; (4) For the best origi-
nal oration in the Senior Class of any college. These contests
are all settled in public competition at Commencement. The
speakers are limited to four from each class, selected by the
faculty.
.Through the liberality of Mr. H. H. Buckman, of Jackson-
ville, Florida, a handsome medal is offered annually to the stu-
dent of the College of Engineering making the highest average
grade for the year.
STATEMENT OF EXPENSES
University Charges:-Tuition.-No tuition is charged to
a student whose home is in Florida, except in the College of Law,
where a tuition charge of forty ($40.00) dollars will be made.
(See page 126.) Students who are non-residents of Florida will
be required to pay a tuition fee of twenty ($20) dollars per year.
Registration Fee.-A registration fee of $5 per year will be
charged all students, except one scholarship student from each
county in Florida.
Damage Deposit.-In order to secure the University property
against damage, the sum of five ($5) dollars must be deposited
at registration. Damage known to have been done by any stu-
dent will be charged to his individual account; all other damages
will be prorated among the students.
At the end of the scholastic year this deposit, less the amount
deducted, will be returned to the student.







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


Board and Lodging.-Board and lodging will be furnished
by the University at a cost of $15 per calendar month, payable in
advance. This includes meals in the Dining Hall and room
(with heat, light and access to a bath-room), furnished as stated
below. No deduction will be made for an absence of less than
one month, except for the Christmas holidays.
Room Without Board.-Students occupying a room in the
Dormitories but not taking meals in the Dining Hall will be
charged $5 per calendar month for lodging.
Furniture.-All rooms are partially furnished. The furni-
ture consists of two iron bedsteads and mattresses, chiffonier or
bureau, table, washstand and chairs. The students are required
to provide all other articles, including pillows, bedding, wash-
bowl, pitcher, mirror, half curtains, etc.
Uniform. All students, except graduate, law, and normal
students, are required to provide themselves with a uniform.
This is of the best quality Charlottesville cadet gray, and is much
less expensive than citizen's clothing of like quality. The uniform
may be worn at all times and is neat and serviceable. In order
to minimize the heat of summer, students may be required at
that time to furnish themselves with a regulation shirt, trousers
and hat, leggins, shoes and tie, and two pairs of white duck
trousers, obtainable at a slight expense. The expense of uni-
form in all will be in the neighborhood of $23.00, which amount
must be deposited on entrance.
Books.-The cost of books depends largely upon the course
taken. The cost of required text-books is, in no case, a large
item of expense, though in the higher classes the student is en-
couraged to acquire a few works of permanent value.
The following statement summarizes the minimum expense of
a Florida student registered in the College of Arts and Sciences,
of Agriculture, or of Engineering:
Tuition .............. ..........................$ 00.00
Registration Fee .............................. 5.00
Damage Deposit .............................. 5.00
Board and Lodging, at $15.00 per month.......... 120.00

Incidentals, (laundry, athletic, literary society
etc., dues), about ........................... 20.00
$183.00
Less Damage Deposit returned at end of year... 5.00
$178.00








EXPENSES.


The actual University charges to a law student (including
board and lodging, fees, and tuition, but not including books)
are $165.00.
Graduate and normal students, who are exempt from buying
uniforms, will deduct the cost of uniform from the above table;
and students from other States will add a tuition fee of $20.00.
Remittances.-All remittances should be made to the Auditor,
The University of Florida, Gainesville, Fla.
Scholarships.-Through the generosity of friends of the Uni-
versity the institution is able to offer needy and deserving young
men three scholarships of $100 each per year.
1. The Board of Control Scholarship, established and main-
tained by the Board of Control. For Florida students.
2. The Kirby Smith Scholarship, established and maintained
by the Kirby Smith Chapter of the Daughters of the Confed-
eracy. For grandsons of Confederate veterans.
3. The Faculty Scholarship, established and maintained by
the faculty of the University.
Application for these scholarships should be made to the
President of the University, and should be accompanied by a
record of the student's work and statement of his need, and cer-
tificates of his character and desert. The scholarships will be
awarded on the following principles:
(a) The student must actually need this financial help to
enable him to attend the University.
(b) He must be worthy to receive such help. To be worthy
he must first be a young man of good character and habits;
second, he must be sufficiently far advanced to enter not lower
than the Freshman Class of the University. This means that he
must have completed the work of the 11th grade of the public
schools, or its equivalent.
Opportunities for Earning Expenses.-It is often possible
for a student to earn a part of his expenses by working during
such hours as are not required for his University duties.
The University gives regular employment to a few students
as waiters in the dining hall, as janitors, and in some other
capacities. Such employment is not, as a rule, given to a student
unless he is financially unable to complete a year at the University
without earning money. In making appointments preference is

given to students in attendance at the University, as compared
with applicants from outside; to members of higher classes, as
compared with those of lower classes; and to students of high
standing as compared with those of low standing. Employment
is not given to a student who fails in any study.
While the employment of students is designed primarily to
assist those in need of 'funds, the payment for their services is in
no sense a charity. The rate of remuneration is no higher, and
the standard of service demanded is no lower, than would be the
case if the work were done by others than students. If a student
employee fails to give satisfaction in his work, he is promptly
discharged. Otherwise he is continued in his position as long as
he cares to hold it, provided it is not found to interfere with
reasonable success in his studies, and provided he does not
commit any breach of general good conduct.
While great credit is due to those young men who are willing
to make the sacrifices required to earn the expenses of their
education, students are not advised to undertake to earn money
while pursuing their studies, unless such a course of action is
quite unavoidable. Proper attention to studies makes sufficient
demand upon the time and energy of a student, without the bur-
den of outside duties; and such time as the studies leave free
can be spent more profitably in healthful recreation.

STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS
The Young Men's Christian Association.-There is a branch
of the Y. M. C. A. in the University, which meets every Sunday.
At these meetings the practical rather than the theoretical phases
of Christianity are freely and candidly talked over, and the
students discuss among themselves the special problems which
arise in student life. Members of the faculty, the ministers of
the city, and distinguished Christian workers are frequently in-
vited to address the association. Bible classes are organized
in connection with the work.
Students, on entering the University, should by all means
become identified with this organization, and parents should
counsel and encourage them in so doing. A note of introduction
to the president of the organization will cause especial attention
to be given a new student.








STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS.


Literary Societies.-The Yocum Literary Society, the mem-
bers of which come from the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, of
Agriculture, and of Engineering; and the John Marshall De-
bating Society, composed of students in the College of Law,
are valuable adjuncts to the educational work of the University.
They are conducted entirely by the students and maintain a high
level of endeavor. The members obtain much practical experi-
ence in the conduct of public assemblies. They assimilate knowl-
edge of parliamentary law, acquire ease and grace of delivery,
learn to argue with calmness of thought and courtesy of manner,
and are trained in thinking and in presenting their thought clearly
and effectively when facing an audience.
All students are earnestly advised to connect themselves with
one of these societies, and to take a constant and active part in
its work.
The Transit Club.-This is an organization of the civil
engineering students, having for its object the promotion of both
social and intellectual interests of such men. It was founded in
the spring of 1909 as a natural result of the fraternal feeling
brought about by the close comradeship of camp life, and is the
pioneer engineering society in this State. Fortnightly meetings
are held in the civil engineering class rooms, and each member
in turn presents a paper on some topic of interest to civil en-
gineers.
The Press Club.-The Press Club is essentially a student
organization, although it has the support of the University Com-
mittee on Publicity. The club was organized for two definite
purposes: to give the members practice in journalistic writing,
and to furnish to the press of the State accounts of local hap-
penings of sufficient general interest to warrant publication.
During the session of 1909-10 a series of lectures was given
before the club, to which all the student body were invited. The
present officers of the club, and these will hold over into the
next session, are: G. J. Grace, President; C. H. Overman,
Vice President; S. Macintosh, Secretary-Treasurer, and C. L.
Crow, Chief Reporter.
The Teachers' Club.-This is an organization of students
in the Department of Education, and others who are interested
in teaching. It meets once each week, when all phases of modern








UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


educational problems are discussed in the form of reports, essays
and debates. It attempts to acquaint, in a practical manner, the
young teacher with the problems that will confront him in his
regular school work, and especially to show him the advantages
of teachers' meetings and conferences.
Students who contemplate teaching are urged to become mem-
bers and take an active part in this club.
The Agricultural Club.-The purpose of the Agricultural
Club is to promote interest in agriculture; to unify college
thought; to afford training in public speaking; and to prepare
for leadership in after life. The club meets twice during the
month. Its membership is composed of students in the College
of Agriculture and others interested in the subject.

TERMS OF ADMISSION
A candidate for admission must present, along with his schol-
astic record, a certificate of good moral character; and if the
candidate be from another college or university, the certificate
must show that he was honorably discharged.
METHODS OF ADMISSION
There are two methods of gaining admission to the University:
(1) By Certificate.-The University will accept certificates
from the Senior High Schools of Florida; from accredited acad-
emies and preparatory schools of the State; and from any sec-
ondary school of another State which is accredited by its State
University.
The certificate presented by the candidate for admission must
be officially signed by the principal of the school attended. It
must state in detail the work of preparation, and in the case of
Florida High Schools, that the course through the eleventh grade
has been satisfactorily completed.
Blank certificates, conveniently arranged for the desired data,
will be sent to all principals, and, upon application, to prospec-
tive students.
(2) By Examination.-Candidates not admitted by certificate
will be required to stand written examinations upon the entrance
subjects. These examinations will be held on the Thursday and
Friday following the last Wednesday in May and on the Monday
and Tuesday preceding the last Wednesday in September.

SCHOLASTIC REQUIREMENTS
"Entrance Units."-The scholastic requirements for admis-
sion are measured in "Entrance Units." These units are based
upon the curriculum of the High Schools of Florida. A unit
represents a course of study pursued throughout the school year
with five recitation periods of at least 45 minutes each per week.
Two laboratory periods should be counted as one recitation
period.
Number of Units Required. At present 12 units are re-
quired for entrance, equivalent to the completion of the eleventh
grade of the Senior High Schools.
Notice is hereby given that with the year 1913-14, the standard
for entrance will be raised to 15 units, equivalent to graduation
from the Senior High Schools.
Distribution of Units.-Of the 12 units required for admission,
8 are specified as follows:
E english ......... .......................... 3 units
Mathematics .................. ............... 3 units
H history ....................................... 2 units
Candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Arts must present
in addition:
Latin ............ ................... 3 units
The remaining units (for A. B., one; for B. S., four) may be

didate, but such deficiency must be removed by the end of the
first year of admission.







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


DESCRIPTION OF UNIT COURSES
English.-Three units, all required.-The work in English
(including Grammar, Composition and Rhetoric and the recom-
mended Classics) is designed to cover three years. It is urged
that the exercises in Composition and the use of the Classics be
continued through the three years.
(1) Grammar.-A thorough knowledge of English Gram-
mar, both in its technical aspects and in its bearings upon speech
and writing.
(2) Composition and Rhetoric.-A mastery of the funda-
mental principles of elementary Rhetoric such as is given in any
standard High School text; and constant practice in Composition,
oral and written, during the whole period of preparation.
(3) Classics.-The English Classics now generally adopted

I. Reading.-A certain number of books will be set for
reading (see list subjoined). The candidate will be required
to present evidence of a general knowledge of the subject-
matter and to answer simple questions on the lives of the
authors. The form of examination will usually be the writing
of a paragraph or two on each of several topics to be chosen
by the candidate from a considerable number-perhaps ten
or fifteen-set before him in the examination paper. The
treatment of these topics is designed to test the candidate's
power of clear and accurate expression, and will call for only
a general knowledge of the substance of the books.
II. Study and Practice.-This part of the examination
presupposes the thorough study of each of the works named
in this division. The examination will be upon the subject-
matter, form, and structure. In addition the candidate may
be required to answer questions involving the essentials of
English grammar and on the leading facts in English literary
history to which the prescribed texts belong.

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


ORGANIZATION

In accordance with the recommendation of the Association
of State Universities, the University of Florida has been re-
organized with a view to bringing its organization and nomen-
clature into harmony with that of other institutions engaged in
similar work and in order to attain a better co-ordination among
its various lines of activity. This change does not involve any
material alteration in the work of the institution as it has been
hitherto conducted; but gives a consistent nomenclature and a
systematic division to the various fields. While it is recognized
that the organization is somewhat extensive for the present, it
is believed that it is wise to keep distinct the various features
of the work with a view to future development.
The University organization is as follows:

I. THE GRADUATE SCHOOL:
II. THE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES:
(a) A Curriculum leading to the A. B. degree.
(b) A Curriculum leading to the B. S. degree.
(c) A Curriculum leading to the A. B. degree in Education.
III. THE COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE:
A Curriculum leading to the degree of B. S. in Agriculture.
IV. THE COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING:
(a) A Curriculum leading to the B. S. degree in Civil
Engineering.
(b) A Curriculum leading to the B. S. degree in Electrical
Engineering.
(c) A Curriculum leading to the B. S. degree in Mechanical
Engineering.
V. THE COLLEGE OF LAW:
A Curriculum leading to the degree of B. L.
VI. THE SUB-COLLEGIATE DIVISION:
(a) The Sub-Freshman Class.
(b) Short Courses in Education.
(c) Short Courses in Agriculture.
(d) Short Courses in Mechanic Arts.
VII. THE DIVISION OF UNIVERSITY EXTENSION:
(a) Farmers' Institutes.
(b) Correspondence Courses in Agriculture.
(c) Lecture and Literary Bureaus.
VIII. THE AGRICULTURAL EXPERIMENT STATION:







GRADUATE SCHOOL.


GRADUATE SCHOOL
Organization.-The work in this school is under the direction
of the Committee on Graduate Studies. This committee consists
of Professors Anderson, Banks, Benton, Davis, Keppel and
Vernon.
Degrees Offered.-The University is not in a position at
present to lay any great stress upon the Graduate Work. Its
work is mainly of a college grade and will doubtless remain so
for a good many years to come. However, for the benefit of
those who wish to carry their studies farther, the University does
offer the degree of Master of Arts (M. A.) and the degree of
Master of Science (M. S.). Many of the departments of the
colleges are prepared to give courses leading to these degrees.
Prerequisite Degrees.-Candidates for the Master's degree
must possess the corresponding Bachelor's degree of this institu-
tion or an institution of like standing.
Applications.-Candidates for the Master's degree must pre-
sent to the Chairman of the Committee on Graduate Studies a
written application for the degree not later than the first of
November in the year -in which the degree is desired. This ap-
plication must name the major and minor subjects which are
offered for the degree and must contain the signed approval of
the heads of the departments concerned.
Time Required.-The student must spend at least one full
academic year in residence at the University of Florida as a
graduate student, devoting his full time to the pursuit of these
studies.
Work Required.-The work is twelve hours per week. Six
hours of this work must be in one subject (the major) and-of a
higher grade than any course offered for undergraduate students
in that subject. The other six hours (the minor or minors) are
to be determined and distributed by the professor in charge of
the department in which the major subject is selected. It is
understood, however, that no course designed primarily for stu-
dents of a lower grade than the Junior class will be acceptable
as a minor. It is also to be understood that while the major
course is six hours, these hours are not the same as in under-
graduate work. It means that the professor has the privilege
of using these six hours for recitations or examinations, but the

student will find that considerably more time is required to pre-
pare one of these recitations than is the case in an undergraduate
course.
Dissertation.-It is customary to require a dissertation show-
ing original research and independent thinking on some subject
accepted by the professor under whom the major work is taken,
but this requirement may be waived at the optain of the professor,
subject to the approval of the Committee on Graduate Studies.

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


GENERAL STATEMENT
Aim and Scope.-The tendency of universities at the present
time seems to be to reach out their arms farther and farther into
the domain of knowledge and to become'more and more places
where one may expect to be able to acquire any form of useful
knowledge in which he may be interested. In the center of such
an institution, however, there is still found the College of Arts
and Sciences, the pulsating heart, as it were, sending its vivifying
streams to the outermost tips of the institution.
The aim of this College is to prepare for life, it is true, but
not so directly and immediately as the professional schools. It
is a longer, but a better road, for those who are able to travel it,
to distinction and ultimate success in almost any calling. Es-
pecially in the case of the learned professions, it is becoming
clearer that a man should first get a liberal education, if possible,
before entering upon his professional studies.
The purpose and aim of the College of Arts and Sciences is
to impart culture and refinement, to train the mind and strengthen
the intellect, to build up ideals and establish the character, to
enlarge the vision, to ennoble the thoughts, to increase the ap-
preciation of the beautiful and the true, to add charm to life
and piquancy to companionship, to make the man a decent fellow,
a useful citizen, an influential member of society in whatever
community he may be thrown, in whatever field his life-course
may be run.
But if one wishes to examine the practical side exclusively,
he will find that there is also something practical in all these
courses. For instance, they are all valuable for the one who
wishes to learn to teach those subjects. Moreover, the use of
electives in the junior and senior years gives one an opportunity
to specialize in some branch according to his inclination and in
furtherance of his plans.
Admission.-Twelve entrance units are required for admis-
sion to the College of Arts and Sciences. For candidates for the
Bachelor of Arts degree they are:
English .......................... ..... . 3 units
Mathematics ........ .................. 3 units
History ......................... ...... 2 units
Latin ........................................ 3 units
Elective ..................................... 1 unit
12 units









COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES.


For candidates for the Bachelor of Science, the three units of
Latin may be replaced by other electives, though the Latin is
considered preferable.
For full description of terms of admission and unit courses
see page 38.
Curricula.-The College of Arts and Sciences offers three
curricula: one leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts, an-
other to the degree of Bachelor of Science, and another to the
degree of Bachelor of'Arts in Education. Each of these courses
of study possesses a considerable degree of flexibility because of
the freedom in the choice of electives, especially in the last two of
the four years.

UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


Departments of Instruction
ANCIENT LANGUAGES
PROFESSOR ANDERSON.
The study of the Classics contributes largely to general cul-
ture. In addition to the recognized and peculiar disciplinary
value of such studies, and their conspicuous service in cultivat-
ing the literary sense and developing literary taste, they have a
more immediate value and office as aids to the comprehension
and interpretation of modern languages and literature. A thor-
ough study and a full understanding of the modern languages,
especially the Romance Languages and our own tongue, demand
a considerable preliminary acquaintance with Latin and Greek.
Thus from two points of view, that of their own intrinsic beauty
and value as culture studies, and that of subsidiary aids to the
study of other and modern languages, Latin and Greek command
our attention, and call for a large place in any curriculum which
proposes to issue in a liberal education.
The following courses are offered for the coming year:

LATIN
Latin I.-Livy, books XXI and XXII or other selections;
Ovid, about 2,000 verses selected from his various works but
mainly from the Metamorphoses; Virgil, Aeneid, books I-IV;
Versification, with especial reference to the Dactylic Hexameter
and Pentameter; weekly exercises in Prose Composition; Gram-
mar. (Required for A. B. students; both semesters, Freshman
year, 3 hours.)
Latin II.-Selections from the Letters of Cicero and Pliny;
selections from the Satires, Epistles, Odes, and Epodes of Horace
with a study of the Horatian Metres; weekly exercises in Prose
Composition; Grammar. (Required for A. B. students; both
semesters, Sophomore year, 3 hours.)
Latin III.-Juvenal's Satires with some omissions; Tacitus,
parts of the Histories or Annals; Selections from Catullus, Tibul-
lus, Propertius, and Ovid. (Elective; both semesters, Junior
year, 3 hours.)
Latin IV.-Several plays of Plautus and Terence; Tacitus,
Germania or Agricola; selections from Seneca, Gellius and Quin-
tilian. (Elective; both semesters, Senior year, 3 hours.)







COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES.


Latin Vb.-History of the Roman Literature, preceded by a
short study of Roman Life and Customs. (Elective; second se-
mester, 3 hours.)
GREEK
Greek I.-The forms and most important principles of the
syntax will be learned from a beginner's book. The student will
have numerous exercises, partly oral, partly written, and some
practice in conversation and sight-reading. Then one book of
Xenophon's Anabasis will be read with exercises in Prose Com-
position and study of the Grammar. (Elective; 5 hours.)
Greek II.-Xenophon's Anabasis, books II, III and IV;
Selections from Lucian and the easier dialogues of Plato; sight
translation; Prose Composition; Grammar. (Elective; 3 hours.)
Greek III.-Select orations of Lysias or other Attic orators,
with informal talks on Athenian laws and customs; parts of the
Iliad and Odyssey of Homer; Prosody; Prose Composition.
(Elective; 3 hours.)
Greek IV.-Selections from the Greek historians, especially
Herodotus and Thucydides; selections from the Greek dramatists,
especially Euripides and Sophocles; selections from the lyric
fragments of Alcaeus, Sappho, etc. (Elective; 3 hours.)
Greek Va.-A study of the history of Greek Literature pre-
ceded by a short study of Greek Life and Customs. A knowl-
edge of the Greek language is highly desirable but is not re-
quired for this course. (Elective; first semester; 3 hours.)
BOTANY
PROFESSOR FLOYD.
The department is well equipped for carrying on the work.
A large, well-lighted laboratory, furnished with all necessary
apparatus and material gives ample opportunity for careful and
successful microscopic and physiological investigation.
Plants for study can be easily obtained at all seasons of the
year. The flora of the vicinity is rich in the number of im-
portant species and additional material may be secured from the
horticultural grounds.
Botany I.-General Botany.-This embraces the study in
the classroom and laboratory of the structure, morphology, evo-
lution, and classification of plants. Work is done on special
types, beginning with the simplest and advancing to the more

complex. Field work is undertaken during the spring months.
(Required of scientific, agricultural, and pedagogical students;
both semesters, Freshman year, 3 hours.)
Botany II.-Plant Physiology.-The life processes of plants,
such as how water is taken up and disposed of, relation to the
soil, nutrition, respiration, irritability, etc., are directly investi-
gated. Much of this is done in the laboratory and garden. (Re-
quired of agricultural students; elective for scientific students;
first semester, Sophomore year, 5 hours.)
Botany III.-Histology.-This is largely laboratory work.
The structure and development of the tissues of the higher plants
in relation to their function is studied. Practice is given in
methods of fixing, staining and mounting microscopic slides.
(Required of a rii-cu,'l,, students in agronomy and horticultural
groups; elective for scientific students in Junior and Senior year;
second semester, 5 hours.)
Botany IV.-Plant Pathology.-Lectures and laboratory
work. A study of the nature and cause of plant diseases, in-
cluding a systematic consideration of parasitic fungi. The pre-
vention of disease, the relation of crops and fungicides, are con-
sidered. (Required of agricultural students in agronomy and
horticultural groups; elective for scientific students, who have
had Botany I and II; first semester, Senior year, 3 hours.)
Botany V.-Advanced Plant Pathology.-Types of fungi of
special economic importance in the State, including those para-
sitic on San Jos6 scale and white fly are cultivated, their life
histories traced, and their growth and spread on natural hosts
investigated. (Required of agricultural students in agronomy
and horticultural groups; elective for scientific students who have
had Botany IV; second semester, Senior year, 5 hours.)

CHEMISTRY
PROFESSOR FLINT.
The facilities for instruction in chemistry compare favorably
with those of the larger institutions of the South and are being
steadily improved. The department is equipped with the neces-
sary apparatus and material for instruction in general inorganic
and organic, analytical and industrial chemistry.
Beginning with the sophomore year, all students in all the
courses are required to take general chemistry. In the scientific







COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES.


courses, the junior year is devoted mainly to qualitative, the
senior year to quantitative analysis. Abundant laboratory work
is offered in all of these courses.
Chemistry I.-This course is on general inorganic chemistry.
During the first semester, the non-metallic elements are studied,
by means of a text-book, lectures and recitations. Special atten-
tion is given to the principles underlying chemical union, and the
theories and laws which govern the science.
In the second semester the metals and their more important
compounds are studied in the same manner. (Three hours a
week throughout the Sophomore year for the B. S. course and
Junior year for B. A. courses required of all students.)
Chemistry II.-This is a laboratory course in general chem-
istry. In order to impress the principles of the science upon the
minds of the students, they are required to repeat in the labora-
tory many of the experiments seen in the lecture room, taking
notes of the same, and writing the chemical reactions as far as
possible. Each one is required to perform over a hundred ex-
periments designed to illustrate chemical principles, including the
preparation of many of the elements and their most important
compounds.
In the second semester the laboratory work is designed to
study the reactions of the metals with a view to their classifi-
cation. During this semester a portion of the time is devoted to a
thorough course in dry analysis. (Two exercises a week through-
out the Sophomore year, required of all students in the scientific
courses.)
Chemistry III.-This is a laboratory course in qualitative
analysis, in the junior year. (Three exercises a week, elective in
the A. B. Course.)
Chemistry IV.-Includes course III, with two additional ex-
ercises a week in the same line of work. (Offered as an elective
in the Science courses, and required in the chemical course.)
Chemistry V is a course in Organic Chemistry and in Chem-
ical Technology, given in alternate years.
During the year 1910-11 the course in Chemical Technology
will be given. The course in Organic Chemistry includes lec-
tures, recitations and elective laboratory work. The laboratory
work is designed to illustrate the various principles as given in
the text, as well as practice in making pure organic preparations.







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


It comprises two periods of two hours each, per week, and is
elective to those taking this course.
A short course of lectures on the subject of metallurgy, in
the latter part of the semester, will be given if asked for, in
which the chemistry involved in the reduction and fabrication
of the more useful metals, as iron, copper, zinc, lead and silver, is
explained. (Three hours a week throughout the Junior year, re-
quired of students in the Chemical course.)
The course in chemical technology comprises a consideration
of the chemical principles involved in the manufacture, refining
and preparation of the leading products of commercial impor-
tance. "Thorp's Outlines of Industrial Chemistry" is used as a
text, lectures being given occasionally enlarging upon or explain-
ing the subject-matter of the book. Among the subjects studied
may be mentioned fuels, sulphuric acid, the soda industry, the
chlorine industry, fertilizers, cements, glass, pigments, coal tar,
mineral oils, soap, starch, sugar, fermentation industries, explo-
sives, textile industries, paper, leather, etc. In connection with
this visits will be made to such factories and chemical industries
as may be accessible. (Three hours a week throughout the
Junior year, required of students in the Chemical course.)
Chemistry VI.-This is a laboratory course in quantitative
analysis. (Elective in the Senior year to students in the B. S.
courses. Three hours a week.)
Chemistry VII.-In this course five exercises a week are
devoted to laboratory work. During the first semester this is
given to quantitative analysis, the exercises being selected with a
view to familiarizing the students with the leading quantitative
operations involved in the gravimetric, volumetric and electrolytic
methods in vogue. As far as possible, the work'of each indi-
vidual is selected to aid especially in the line of work he may
wish to pursue in the future, as medicine, pharmacy, analytical
chemistry, etc. (Seven hours a week throughout the Senior year.
Required of students in the Chemical course.)
Chemistry VIII.-A course of lectures in agricultural chem-
istry, embracing the chemistry of soils, the atmosphere, plant
and animal growth and feeding, fertilizers, dairy products, in-
secticides, etc. (Three hours a week for one semester in the
Senior year. Required of students in the Agricultural course.)

EDUCATION
PROFESSOR THACKSTON.
This department is designed especially for the purpose of pre-
paring young men for the profession of teaching. It aims (1)
to give that training that will properly fit men to teach in and
become principals of high schools, to 'be supervisors, county and
city superintendents; (2) to give that information, insight and
appreciation of our educational problems and principles that each
intelligent citizen of every community should possess, and (3)
to prepare teachers in the Spring Review Course for the county
certificates, and in the Short Curriculum for the State Cer-
tificate.
For a teacher to be able to teach proficiently two or three of
the high school subjects, he should have had a thorough collegiate
training in those subjects; and for him to be able to assume the
position of principal he should have a working knowledge of
the principles of education, educational psychology and the his-
tory of education and be able to show those associated with him
how to teach, control and inspire. In fact he should be a trained
educational leader and not a mere teacher. This is what the
Department of Education stands for. That the special academic
training may be gotten, during the junior and senior years, where
each year, nine hours of electives are given, the student is
requested to select those special studies which he prefers to teach
and to make himself especially proficient in them.
There is no greater problem that confronts the American
people than the problem of education. All citizens are, or will
be, in some way, directly or indirectly, interested in it, and should
be able to take an intelligent stand when thus confronted. Many
of the following courses in education, psychology and philosophy
are especially suited to give the information and training needed
to meet properly these questions. Those students who are not
registered in this Department and who expect to teach for
a while after graduation before they enter other professions will
find some of the following electives especially helpful.
Education I.-Psychology.-This is an elementary course
designed to set forth the main phenomena of mental life, and
furnish the student with the concepts and terms which will con-
stantly recur in his further study. This course will aim es-

pecially to prepare the student for the examination on Psychol-
ogy for the State Certificate. The text-book prescribed from
time to time by the State Superintendent of Education will be
used in connection with lectures and much reference work to the
standard American writers. This year Halleck's Psychology and
Psychic Culture is the text. (Required of Freshmen in Educa-
tional Curriculum; both semesters, two hours.)
Education IIa.-Methods.-This course aims to teach the
accepted principles of instruction, and general and special
methods. Teaching children how to study and how to use their
time outside of the recitation is one of its aims, while to give
methods in the elementary and grammar school subjects re-
ceives about two-thirds of the time. This course not only teaches
the student how to properly instruct his pupils in the methods
of study, but is of great value to him throughout his whole
college course and future work. The text-books used are How
to Study and Teaching How to Study, McMurry; Methods of
Teaching, Winterburn; Teaching of Elementary Mathematics,
Smith; Teaching of English, Chubb; Teaching of Geography,
Sutherland; Special Method in Reading, McMurry; Methods in
History, McMurry, etc. (Required of Sophomores in the Edu-
cational Curriculum; first semester, three hours.)
Education IIb.-School Management and Supervision.-
This course is designed for the purpose of giving the practical
and theoretical information needed by Principals and County Su-
perintendents. During the year many practical problems are
taken up and fully discussed. Discipline, school and class hy-
giene, purpose of education, organization and classification, grad-
ing and promoting-special plans of promotion being discussed
-programs, time tables, report cards, plan and progress books,
departmental teaching, exercises and intermissions, the recita-
tion, etc. The books used are Classroom Management, Bagley;
School and Class Management, Arnold; Special Method of the
Recitation, McMurry; School Hygiene, Shaw; Elementary Edu-
cation, Keith; The School and Its Life, Gilbert; Grading of
Schools, Shearer; and many references are given to other books
in the library. (Required of Sophomores in Educational Curric-
ulum; second semester, three hours.)
Education III.-History of Education.-This course has
two main purposes. First, endeavor is made to lead the student







COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES.


to see and appreciate the good things in the many systems of
education studied and apply them to his own present-day work
as far as possible. In the second place, fine ideals and incentives
for devotion to his calling are furnished by studying the lives
and works of the great educational leaders. Text-book in the
History of Education by Monroe, and Educational Reformers by
Quick, are the texts used. (Required of Juniors in the Educational
Curriculum; elective, both semesters, three hours.)
Education IV.-Secondary Education.-This course is de-
signed especially to give instruction in the study of the second-
ary and high school. Many problems relating to the high schools
in this and other Southern States are thoroughly gone over for"
the purpose of understanding the present situation and planning
for better things. The following special topics may be mentioned:
Psychology and Pedagogy of Adolescence, Technical High
Schools, High-School Athletics, History of Secondary Education,
High-School Course, comparative study of secondary education
in the different countries, etc. Lectures and reference work sup-
plement the reading of several texts on this subject in the
class. (Required of Juniors in the Educational Curriculum; elec-
tive; both semesters, three hours.)
Education V.-The Principles and Philosophy of Education.
-This course attempts to select from modern psychology all of
the facts that will aid the teacher in obtaining a clearer insight
into the actual workings of the child's mind in the process
of learning. The following are a few of the topics studied: the
brain and nervous system, the place of the body in education, at-
tention, interest, imitation, the social, moral and religious aspects
of education, etc. The Growth of the Brain, Donaldson; Inter-
est and Education, De Garmo; A Broader Elementary Education,
Gordy; The Philosophy of Education, Home; Social Education,
Scott. (Required of Seniors in the Curriculum of Education;
elective; both semesters, three hours.)
Education VI.-Child Study.-The aim of this course is to
give the student an insight into the physical development and
growth of the child, the meaning of protracted infancy, the
origin and development of instincts, development of intellect,
heredity, individuality, abnormalities and the application of facts
learned to school work, etc. Fundamentals of Child Study, Ge-
netic Psychology, Kirkpatrick; Studies in Education, Barnes;







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


Moral Instruction of Children, Adler; The Development of the
Child, Oppenheim; Physical Nature of the Child, Rowe. (Re-
quired of Seniors in the Curriculum of Education; elective, first
semester, three hours.)
Education VII.-Practice Teaching.-Knowledge of the
principles. Theory and history of education will better fit any
teacher for his work, but these without concrete experiences and
practice under direction will not give the best results. Realizing
this, this course is planned for the purpose of giving this expe-
rience under the supervision and watch-care of the professor in
charge of the department in which the subject is taught. This
'practice teaching will occupy the same position in the teacher's
course as laboratory work does in the science departments and
will have the same proportion of credit as laboratory work. (Re-
quired of Seniors; second semester, three hours.)

EDUCATION (SECONDARY)
PROFESSOR LYNCH.
This is a new department, whose establishment is made pos-
sible by the generous aid of the General Educational Board of
New York. The work of the department is divided into three
heads:
I. To aid in the establishment of high schools in communi-
ties where such schools are not now in operation;
II. To visit high schools already established and to forward
co-ordination among them and with the State University;
III. To give instruction in pedagogical subjects in the De-
partment of Education in the University.
For the year 1909-10 the work of the department was almost
exclusively visitorial (I and II) and was conducted under the
formal co-operation and support of the State Department of
Education. No regular courses of instruction can therefore be
announced for the coming year.

ENGLISH
PROFESSOR FARR.
English.-The work of the department is designed to meet
the requirements for a practical and liberal education, and is
regarded both as a necessary auxiliary to the training in technical

courses, and as an important factor among the liberalizing studies.
The three sides of the subject, Rhetoric, Linguistics, and Litera-
ture, are presented as fully as the time allotted will permit. While
Rhetoric and Composition are especially stressed in the lower
classes, literary studies in the higher, and linguistic work in
electives, still the attempt is made to keep the three viewpoints
before all classes as necessary to a mastery of their native
language.
English I.-Composition and Rhetoric.-This course is de-
signed to train the students in methods of clear and forceful
expression. Throughout the year instruction is carried on simul-
taneously in formal rhetoric, in rhetorical analysis and in theme
writing, the constant correlation of the three as methods of ap-
proach to the desired goal being kept in view. In addition the
Essays of Macaulay are studied throughout the year, and a
private reading course is assigned to the individual student.
(Throughout the year for all Freshmen, three hours.)
English II.-History of Language and Literature.-The
course is intended to furnish the student an outline of the his-
torical development of the English language and literature both
as a cultural end desirable in itself and as giving the proper per-
spective for future study of literary epochs and types. A text
with selections from the important prose writers and poets, a
course of lectures covering the history of the language and lit-
erature, a manual to be used for reference, frequent reports on
interesting phases of the subject from the individual students,
and a constant use of the University library, are the methods
employed in instruction. Tennyson's Idylls of the King and
Browning's Blot in the 'Scutcheon are critically studied in class,
and a private reading course is assigned to each student.
(Throughout the year for all Sophomores, three hours.)
English IIIa.-Milton and the Epic.-This course centers in
a study of the Paradise Lost, around which are grouped studies
in the Age of Milton and in the Epic as a type in Comparative
Literature. The first four books of the poem are read in class.
Written reviews on the remaining books alternate each week with
essays from the student and lectures by the instructor on various
phases of the subject. A reading course in the minor poets of
the age and in the English translation of the great Epics is as-

signed to each student. (Elective; first semester of Junior year,
three hours.)
English IIIb.-Shakspere and the Drama.-This course fol-
lows the above method. Three of the Shaksperian plays are
read in class. On eight others a written review is held each
fortnight and on the alternate week essays are written and lec-
tures are given by the instructor. Readings in the English Drama
from the Cycle plays to contemporary production are assigned
to the student. (Elective; second semester of Junior year, three
hours.)
English IVa.-The English Novel.-In recognition of the
fact that a large part of the reading of most Americans is in this
line a course in the Novel is offered. This subject is studied in
suitable texts from the two sides of chronological development
and of technique; and the student reads a list of novels chosen
to illustrate chronology and variety of species, analyzes minutely
one novel from the technical side, masters the entire work and
life of one novelist, and compares closely a novel and a drama-
tized version of it. It is hoped that the student may be so
grounded in the classics and his taste and judgment so trained
that his reading in this class of literature may not become mere
intellectual dissipation. (Elective; first semester of Senior year,
three hours.)
English IVb.-The Romantic Revival.-This course is
planned as a study in literary movement. The causes and forces
which underlie the movement, its phenomena and the authors
and works which exhibit them, and a comparison with other
movements in literature will be considered. The work of Prof.
Beers will be used as a basis and the student will be led, by
means of extensive reading, by investigation and essays and by
lectures on the wider ranges of the subjects, to realize the truth
of his statements. (Elective; second semester of Senior year,
three hours.)
English V.-Anglo-Saxon Grammar and Reading.--The
student is drilled in the forms of the early language and an ele-
mentary view of its relations to the other members of the
Aryan family and its development into Modern English is
given. The texts in Bright's Anglo-Saxon Reader are studied
and Cook's edition of the Judith is read. (Elective for Juniors,
both semesters, three hours.)







COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES.


English VI.-Chaucer and the Middle English Grammar.-
During the first semester the works of Chaucer are read in and
out of class. The pronunciation, grammatical forms, scansion,
condition of text, analogues and sources are closely examined.
During the second semester, Morris and Sheats' Specimens, Part
II, is studied in connection with informal lectures on Middle
English viewed as developing from Anglo-Saxon into Modern
English. (Elective for Seniors who have taken English V; both
semesters, three hours.)
English VIIa.-American Poetry.-This course will take a
rapid survey of the development of poetry in the United States
and will then center in a critical study of a few of the more
important authors (Bryant, Whittier, Longfellow, Emerson,
Lowell and Poe). (Elective; first semester, three hours.)
English VIIb.-Southern Literature.-A detailed study of
the literature of the South with extensive reading and essay
work, and an examination of the claims of Florida authors, will
be made. (Elective; second semester, three hours.)

GEOLOGY
PROFESSOR DAVIS.
Geology I.-A course in the General Principles of Geology.
-Four hours class and one hour of laboratory work. Attention
is given in the laboratory to the principal types of rocks, and to
the more common fossils. Students who select this course are
expected to be able to take occasional Saturday excursions. (Re-
quired of Juniors of the Natural History and Chemical groups,
and of Agricultural students; elective; first semester, five hours.)
Geology II.-Mineralogy.-Moses & Parson's Mineralogy.
Class work on the general character of minerals including the
elements of crystallography. Laboratory determination of min-
erals. (Required of Juniors of the Chemical group; elective;
second semester, five hours.)
Geology III.-Historical Geology.-Text and Laboratory
work.-The geological history and development of continental
areas. The geological history and development of life. Cham-
berlin & Salisbury's "Earth History" is used as text for the
course. (Alternate with Botany and Zoology for Seniors of the
Natural History group; both semesters, five hours.)







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


Laboratory.-The department is provided with a well lighted,
comfortable laboratory, equipped for the courses offered. The
United States Geological Survey Educational Series of rocks is
accessible for the use of students of geology. For students of
mineralogy there is provided a blowpipe collection of one hundred
selected mineral species; an accessory blowpipe collection of mis-
cellaneous minerals; a crystal collection of fifty natural crystals;
and a reference collection of choice mineral specimens. Historical
Geology students are provided with a collection of fossils illustra-
ing the distribution and development of organisms.

HISTORY AND ECONOMICS
PROFESSOR BANKS.
This department attempts to introduce the student to the
social sciences in the hope that he may receive an impulse toward
an intelligent appreciation of the forces at work in the complex
society of which he is a member, and that he may also be in-
spired toward, as well as in some measure equipped for, a wise
discharge of his duties as a citizen. Courses in History find a
place here for the reason that the present structure of our society
can be understood only through a study of its development out
of the past. Work in Economics is given not only 'because the
struggle for existence and for the material means of satisfying
wants has been in the past one of the dominant forces in social evo-
lution, but also because that struggle presents today perhaps the
most serious body of problems with which the citizen has to deal.
Political Science is made a subject of study in order that the
student may become acquainted with the nature and functions
of government as an agency of order and of social betterment.
Sociology is the most comprehensive of the subjects that find a
place in this department since it attempts through a study of the
past and through a combination of the principles of economics
and political science with other principles of social psychology to
reach a complete analysis of society as it exists and of the prin-
ciples which underlie its progress in civilization.

HISTORY
History I.-Modern European History.-It is the purpose
of this course to trace the development of the important national
States which are found upon the map of Europe at the present








COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES.


time. After a brief account of the growth and influence of the
mediaeval church, the nature and extent of feudalism, and the
beginnings of the national States, the course will survey in a
more detailed way the spirit of the renaissance, the protestant
revolt, the political reforms in England, the revolution in France,
and the general changes in Europe during the nineteenth century.
A text-book is used and collateral reading required. (Required
of A. B. and General Science students; both semesters, Freshman
year, two hours.)
History II.-The United States Since 1783.-After a brief
survey of the colonial development, which culminated in the re-
volt from England, special attention is given to the decline of
the confederation, the formation and adoption of the constitution,
the growth of national and State rights parties, expansion, the
diversity of economic development in the North and South,
slavery debates, secession, reconstruction and its undoing, tariff
and financial legislation, the war with Spain and its results.
Text-books are used in this course but in addition reading in the
standard histories and sources is required. (Required of A. B.
students; both semesters, Sophomore year, three hours.)
History III.-The French Revolution and Europe in the
Nineteenth Century.-A study is made of the social and economic
condition of France before the revolution and of the influence
of the philosophers upon the course of events. The career of
Napoleon is studied chiefly for such of his work as had a per-
manent influence. Attention is given the Congress of Vienna,
the subsequent revolutions, the unification of Italy and of Ger-
many, the Eastern question, the Far Eastern question, the par-
tition of Africa, and a brief survey of world politics at the be-
ginning of the twentieth century. Text-books, lectures and
collateral reading. (Junior or Senior elective; both semesters,
three hours.)
History IVa.-Industrial History of England.-This course
traces the development of English industry and commerce, and
the attempt is made to correlate this development with that of
the political and social life of the nation and the empire. (Junior
or Senior elective; first semester, three hours.)
History IVb.-Industrial History of the United States.-
This course attempts to survey the growth and diversification of
industrial activities in the United States, and to point out some

of their political and social consequences. (Junior or Senior
elective; second semester, three hours.)
ECONOMICS
Economics I.-Principles of Economics.-This is an intro-
ductory course describing the leading characteristics of those
human activities which are called economic, and presenting some
of the general principles which underlie the value and price of
goods as well as those which underlie the distribution of income
into rent, wages, interest and profits. Considerable time is de-
voted to the discussion of such practical economic problems as
those that relate to money, international trade and the tariff, the
labor movement, the trusts and the railroads. Socialism and
other plans of social reform also receive some consideration.
The course is based on a text-book, but constant reference is also
made to the works of various authors. (Junior or Senior elective;
both semesters; three hours.)
Economics IIa.-Money and Banking.-It is the aim of this
course to analyze the nature and functions of money and credit
and banking, and to trace the history of money and banking in
the United States with incidental reference to the experience of
other countries in these matters. It is also proposed to discuss
schemes of currency reform and other monetary problems. (Elec-
tive for those who have had Economics I; one-half year course,
three hours.)
Economics IIb.-International Trade and the Tariff.-This
course describes the nature of international trade, traces the his-
tory of the tariff in the United States and the history of our
commercial relations with other countries. (Elective for those

and Bastable, are studied in order to be able to estimate the
merits and defects of our American methods of taxation in their
national, state and local aspects. (Elective for those who have had
Economics I; one-half year course, three hours.)
Economics IIe.-History of Economic Thought.-This
course traces the development of economic thought from the
time of Adam Smith to the present by reference to the writings
of certain typical economists of England, Germany, Austria and
the United States. (Elective for those who have had Economics
I; one-half year course, three hours.)
Nor.--Economics I is offered each year, while Economics IIa, IIb,
IIc, IId, IIe, are half-year courses, and it is planned for only two of
them to be given in any one year, thus making three hours per week
throughout the year.
POLITICAL SCIENCE
Political Science I.- Government of the United States: Na-
tional, State and Imperial.-This course discusses some of the
general principles of political science and applies these principles
in analyzing the structure of the dual system of government in the
United States. A study is made of the original conception of our
Union and the evolution of a new conception which prevailed in
the sixties. The amendments then added are examined in the
light of decisions of the supreme court. After describing in some
detail the organization and functions of the national government
the organization and functions of the state governments, in both
their central and their local branches, are examined-the gov-
ernment of Florida receiving special consideration in this connec-
tion. The governments now being established in our insular pos-
sessions are also considered. (Junior or Senior elective; both se-
mesters, three hours.)
Political Science II.-European Governments.-An analysis
and comparison of the constitutional systems of the leading States
of Europe is attempted in this course. The government of Eng-
land and her dependencies, including the relation of the latter to
the former, receive special attention. (Senior elective; first semes-
ter, three hours.)
SOCIOLOGY
Sociology Ia.-Principles of Sociology.-This is an intro-
ductory course designed to acquaint the student with some of
the problems of sociology regarded as a scientific description of







UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


society. It embraces a study of early forms of social groupings,
their evolution into later and more complex forms together with
some of the general principles of civilization and progress which
seem to manifest themselves in the social process. (Open to
Seniors and others with sufficient preliminary training; first se-
mester, three hours.)
Sociology Ib.-Pauperism and Crime.-This course deals
with the causes of pauperism, traces the history of poor-relief
in England and examines the present methods of dealing with
the problem in the leading countries of the world. The nature
of crime is discussed and the modern methods of dealing with the
different classes of criminals are examined. Other dependent and
defective social classes receive some consideration. (Open to
those who have had Sociology la; second semester, three hours.)

MATHEMATICS AND ASTRONOMY
PROFESSOR KEPPEL.
The work in the Department of Mathematics is planned with
a threefold purpose in view:
1. For students who intend to specialize in Mathematics it
provides the preparation for more advanced work. Several ad-
vanced courses are offered each year for this class of students.
2. To those who need Mathematics as an instrument it offers
opportunities to become familiar with this instrument. The appli-
cation of Calculus not only to Physics, Chemistry and Engineer-
ing, but even to such seemingly remote realms as Psychology
and Political Economy, makes it advisable that this class should
continue the study of Mathematics at least so far as to include
Calculus.
3. To others it gives logical training in Analysis and Proof,
introduces them to that scientific method par excellence of the
Hypothesis, and develops the idea of a deductive system in its
classical form. Elementary (Euclidean) Geometry is studied
with this purpose in view by all members of the Freshman class.
The following courses are offered each year:
Mathematics I.-Solid Geometry (first semester). Plane
and Spherical Trigonometry (second semester). (Required of
all Freshmen; both semesters, five hours.)
Mathematics IIa.-Plane Analytic Geometry and College
Algebra. (Required of all students except those in Pedagogy, or








COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES.


those in the College of Agriculture; both semesters, three hours.)
Mathematics IIb.-Differential and Integral Calculus. (Re-
quired of students in the College of Engineering and in the Math-
ematical-Physical courses in the College of Arts and Sciences;
both semesters, three hours.)
Mathematics IIIa.-Differential and Integral Calculus
(continued). (Required of all students in the College of Engi-
neering and in the Mathematical-Physical courses in the College
of Arts and Sciences; both semesters, three hours.)
Mathematics IIIb.-Solid Analytic Geometry and Theory of
Equations (first semester). Advanced Calculus and Differential
Equations (second semester). (Required of all students in the
College of Engineering and in the Mathematical-Physical courses
in the College of Arts and Sciences; both semesters, two hours.)
The following advanced courses, one of which is required of
students in the Mathematical-Physical course, are offered for
1910-11:
Advanced Calculus with Applications to Geometry.-The
conditions of integrability, the successive extensions to multiple
and curvilinear integrals, integration in series and the trigo-
nometric series will be discussed in the first part of the course;
the application of Calculus to the Theory of Envelopes, Contact,
Curvature and Torsion of twisted curves in the second part.
(Both semesters, three hours.)
Mathematical Seminary.-Subject for the year: Higher
Plane Curves. (Both semesters, three hours.)
In connection with the Department of Mathematics a course in
General Astronomy will be offered, consisting of lectures
and recitations, with practical exercises. No knowledge of ad-
vanced mathematics is presupposed. (Elective; both semesters,
two hours.)
MILITARY SCIENCE AND TACTICS
MAJOR WA.KER.
In compliance with the Revised Statutes of the United States
this institution maintains a course of instruction in Military
Science and Tactics. The aim is to make familiar with the duties
which first confront young officers those who later, through
emergency or inclination, find themselves in the military service.
Experience has shown that military training not only promotes








UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA.


physical development and a tendency towards punctuality and
system, but that it also fosters self-reliance and strengthens the
principles of honor and fair dealing. The course is both practical
and theoretical. The practical course consists of drills, target
practice and other military exercises. The drills proper occupy
not to exceed three hours each week.
The theoretical course, set forth below, consists of recitations
supplemented by lectures on pertinent subjects:
Military Science I.-(a) Infantry Drill Regulations; (b)
Small Arms Firing Regulations. (Required of Freshmen, one
hour per week.)
Military Science II.-(a) Field Service Regulations; (b)
Manual of Guard Duty. (Required of Sophomores, one hour per
week.)
Military Science III.-(a) First Semester. The Service of
Security and Information. Elementary Military Engineering.
(b) Army Regulations, Company Administration and similar sub-
jects. (Elective for Juniors and Seniors; two hours per week.)
MODERN LANGUAGES
PROFESSOR CROW.
French, German, Italian and Spanish are the subjects taught
in this department. Extensive courses of reading, in and out of
class, frequent exercises, oral and written, and studies in the
Literature and Languages of the respective countries form the
chief features of instruction. Carefully prepared English ab-
stracts of nearly all the parallel reading is required.
Authors and text-books vary from year to year. Though
the classics are not neglected, special attention is paid to the
literatures of the nineteenth century.
Since the session of 1906-07 tables have been set apart in the
mess-hall for those wishing to speak German and Spanish.
All of the courses offered below will not be given in any one
year.

PHILOSOPHY
PROFESSOR THACKSTON.
The courses in Philosophy are designed not only to provide
that modicum of knowledge and training which is deemed desir-
able for the general student, but also to lay the foundation, and
possibly furnish the impulse for further and more technical
studies in this department. The class work in each course will
serve mainly to coordinate and render consistent a large amount
of collateral reading dealing with the several subjects discussed
in the text-book. As the work progresses, special studies on given
topics will be required from time to time, and the results of these
studies will be presented and discussed before the class.
Philosophy I.-Psychology.-A general introductory course
is given during the first semester when Angell's Psychology
(1908) is used. During the second semester Social Psychology,
by Ross, and Rational Living by King, are used as texts. (Re-
quired of students in Education, Junior year; elective; both se-
mesters, three hours.)
Philosophy IIa.-Logic.-An elementary course. Creigh-
ton's "Introductory Logic." Lectures and studies in the history,
development and systems of logic. Exercises. (Elective; first se-
inester, three hours.)







COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES.


Philosophy IIb.-Ethics.-A general course. Especial em-
phasis will be laid on the Principles of Ethics. Lectures and
studies in the history of Ethics, and discussion of various ethical
systems. Dewey and Tuft's Ethics. (Elective; second semester,
three hours.)
Philosophy III.-Introduction to the Problems of Philoso-
phy.-In this course the great problems of Philosophy will be
briefly presented and discussed, as, for example, theism, panthe-
ism, materialism, dualism, rationalism, empiricism, etc. Paulsen's
"Introduction to Philosophy" will be used as a text, and collateral
reading in various authors will be assigned in connection with the
topics studied. Special subjects will be assigned for written dis-
cussion. (Elective; both semesters, three hours.)
Philosophy IVa and b.-This is a course in the History of
Philosophy and requires two years for its completion. The work
of the first year treats Ancient Philosophy, that of the second
Mediaeval and Modern. Weber's "History of Philosophy" will
be used as a guide text. (Elective; both semesters; two years,
three hours.)
PHYSICS
PROFESSOR BENTON.
The work of this department is intended to meet the needs, on
the one hand, of those who study physics as a part of a liberal
education, and on the other hand, of those who will have to
apply physics as one of the sciences fundamental to engineering.
Instruction is given by (1) recitations, based upon lessons as-
signed in text-books; (2) laboratory work, in which the student
uses his own direct observation to gain knowledge of the sub-
ject; (3) lectures, in which experimental demonstrations of the
principles under discussion are given; and (4) seminar work in
the advanced courses, in which the various members of the class
take up different special problems requiring extended study or in-
vestigation, and report upon them in turn to the class.
The physical laboratory is well equipped for the experi-
ments usually required in undergraduate laboratory work in the
best colleges. The equipment has been greatly increased in the
last few years, and additions are made to it from year to year.
The following courses are offered:
Physics I.-General physics, including mechanics, heat,
acoustics, and optics, but not electricity and magnetism. Text-

GENERAL STATEMENT

The college of agriculture is intended to meet the require-
ments of the acts of Congress creating and endowing colleges
in the different States. From these acts it is apparent that recog-
nition of agriculture as a branch of collegiate instruction is a
distinctive feature of the institutions founded upon the provisions
of the national land-grant act. The aim of the college is to offer
young men the best possible equipment for their chosen field of
endeavor. The courses comprise both theory and practice, and
afford opportunity for gaining both technical knowledge and
training in the art of agriculture. Since about one-third of the
student's time is devoted to agricultural branches and the other
two-thirds to the sciences and cultural studies, a broad, thorough
foundation is laid which will enable him, upon graduation, to be-
come either a leader in educational lines or an effective producing
agriculturist.
The group courses offered during the Junior and Senior
years afford opportunity for selecting that phase of agriculture
best suited to the qualifications and taste of the individual, and
to better prepare for that particular line of work. Those who
wish to pursue general farming will elect the agronomy or animal
husbandry group. Those interested in fruit production or market
gardening will elect the horticultural group. The chemical group
will interest those who wish to become expert agricultural ana-
lysts. There is already a demand for teachers well prepared and
competent to give instruction in agriculture and this demand no
doubt will grow in Florida in the years to come as it has
grown in other agricultural States. In order to meet this demand
it has been thought best to include an agricultural-pedagogical
group. This group will be of special interest to those teachers
who wish to specialize in agriculture and become proficient in this
growing school subject. Teachers who complete this group will
also be competent to give instruction in the sciences required in
the High Schools of the State. The present demand for expe-
rienced agricultural teachers cannot be supplied; therefore the
agricultural-pedagogical group forms an attractive and lucrative
line for ambitious young teachers. A certificate stating that the
agricultural-pedagogical group has been pursued will be granted
in addition to the usual degree.







COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE.


In addition to the four-year course in agriculture leading to a
degree, the following short courses are offered:
1. A Two-Year Course.
2. A One-Year Preparatory Course.
3. A Farmers' Short Course of Twelve Weeks.
4. Fourteen Correspondence Courses for Home Study.
Equipment.-The Location of the College of Agriculture.-
The College of Agriculture the coming year will occupy one sec-
tion in the South end of Thomas Hall, made vacant by the re-
moval of the Experiment Station into their new four-story build-
ing. This will afford much needed additional office, class-room
and laboratory space.
The College Farm.-The farm connected with the college con-
consists of 40 acres, about 28 acres for trucking and general field
crops, 2 acres for stock lots, 2 acres for orchard, 5 acres for
pasture and 3 acres for buildings and grounds, where a hay and
machinery barn now stands and where it is contemplated building,
as soon as money is available, a horse barn, a sanitary dairy barn,
a fertilizer house, poultry houses and runs, a packing shed, corn
cribs and a farm foreman's cottage.
Offices, Class-Rooms and Laboratories.-Space will be avail-
able in the new quarters for department offices; for Class Rooms
in Agronomy, Horticulture and Animal Husbandry; for Labora-
tories in Soils and Fertilizers, Dairying, Stock and Grain Judg-
ing; and for the Agricultural Library.
Live Stock.-The laboratory equipment in live stock is only
well begun, but the individuals of the herds are of high grade.
There is such great promise for the future of the livestock and
dairy industry in Florida that in future much attention will be
given to the subject. The equipment will be added to from year
to year, as funds become available for the purpose, until represen-
tatives of all the important breeds and classes will be available for
giving thorough courses in breeds of livestock and judging and
score-card work, so helpful in mastering the details connected with
stock raising.
Library.-The Agricultural Library is small but select. The
leading technical books are on file and a fairly complete set of
State Experiment Station and Government Bulletins are main-
tained. The list is being added to each year. These books and
bulletins are open to the students for reference study or for sup-

elementary reading. The general library is also open to the stu-
dents of the college.
The Agricultural Club, inaugurated during the present year,
has already proved an important factor in student life. The ob-
jects of the Club are manifold. The following are among the
most important:
First, to promote interest in and enthusiasm for agriculture.
Second, through social intercourse to unite in closer bonds
of friendship and sympathy those who desire to have a part in
the promotion of this great industry.
Third, to gain knowledge. Looking to this end the Club
will be addressed from time to time by practical and scientific
agriculturists. Carefully prepared papers, essays, readings and
orations will be presented by the members upon assigned or
chosen subjects of general interest to the Club. General dis-
cussions on current agricultural and humanitarian topics will be
freely encouraged.
Fourth, training in presenting agricultural matter. At the
present time such training is almost as important a factor in suc-
cess as agricultural knowledge. Practice is obtained in parlia-
mentary usage and in presiding over and conducting public so-
cieties. Members in turn are givert a place on the program and
they are encouraged to take part in the discussions and business
that may come before the Club.
Every student of the College of Agriculture should avail him-
self of the benefits and privileges offered by the Club, and stu-
dents of other Colleges in the University are cordially invited to
make use of the means thus provided for increasing their knowl-
edge of and sympathy with this important movement, the uplift of
the agricultural industry-an industry which not only supplies
mankind with food, but upon which nearly all other industries
depend.
The officers of the Agricultural Club are as follows:

MR. FRANK T. WILSON, President.
MR. EDWARD F. STOLBERG, Vice President.
MR. FRED H. GIBBONS, Secretary-Treasurer.
MR. A. B. MASSEY, Critic.
New students in the University who are at all interested in
Agriculture should make themselves known to the officers of
the Agricultural Club and should early become allied with this

movement-thereby securing the many benefits to be derived from
membership therein.
Entrance Requirements.-The entrance requirements for ad-
mission to the College of Agriculture are:

English ...................................... 3 units
Mathematics ................................... 3 units
History ........ ............................... 2 units
Agriculture .................................... 1 unit
Electives ....................................... 3 units
12 units
For a detailed description of the units, see page 40.
While one unit of agriculture is required, owing to the fact
that agriculture has been so recently included in the curriculum
of the public high schools by legislative enactment, candidates
will be allowed to take the agricultural work in which they are
deficient during the freshman year. Those who enter the pre-
paratory year will pursue the required agricultural work in class.
Degrees.-The regular four-year course culminating with one
of the five groups-Agronomy, Horticulture, Animal Husbandry,
Agricultural-Chemical and Agricultural-Pedagogical leads to the
degree of Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. One year additional
work as prescribed for graduate students leads to the degree of
Master of Science in Agriculture.
Certificates.-Certificates will be granted to those who com-
plete any of the Short Courses.

AGRONOMY
PROFESSOR VERNON.
Agronomy is the science of crop production. It includes
Soils: Classification, fertility, cultivation and improvement;
Crops: Classification, production and improvement; Agricultural
Engineering: Farm buildings, roads, fences, drainage and ir-
rigation systems, tools and farm machinery; and Farm Manage-
ment: the application of economic business methods to farm
practices.
The laboratory work and field observations aim to fix the
principles learned in the class room and give them practical ap-
plication.
Agronomy A.-Elementary Agronomy.-Introductory prin-
ciples underlying crop production and farm management. (First
semester, Sub-Freshman year, three hours.)
Agronomy I.-Soil Physics.-The origin, formation, classi-
fication, moisture, ventilation and temperature of soils; and gen-
eral methods of soil management and amelioration are among
the subjects to be presented in this course. (First semester, Fresh-
man year, five hours.)
Agronomy II.-Fertilizers.-The nature of plant food and
its relation to the composition of soils, sources and composition of
commercial fertilizers and principles governing their application,
the making and economical use of farm manures, fertilizer re-
quirements of various crops, and other related topics will form
the subjects of discussion in this course. (Second semester, Fresh-
man year, three hours.)
Agronomy III.-Crop Production.-The various grain and
forage crops will be discussed with respect to their habits of
growth, soil adaptations, fertilizer requirements, general methods
of tillage and harvesting, and the most profitable forms in which
to market them. Special attention will be given to corn, cotton
and forage crops adapted to the South. (First semester, Sopho-
more year, three hours.)
Agronomy IV.-Rural Law and Farm Accounts.-Classifica-
tion of property, boundaries, fences, stock laws, rents, contracts,
deeds, mortgages, taxes, laws governing shipping, and other
topics of special interest to farmers will be treated; and a system

of farm bookkeeping will be worked out, using the transactions of
the University farm as a basis for material for instruction. (First
semester, Junior year, three hours.)
Agronomy V.-Crop Judging.-This course treats of clas-
sification and market grades of field crops, such as corn, cotton,
velvet beans, etc.; shrinkage and other losses, and care of stored
crops. The score card will be brought into use whenever pos-
sible. (First semester, Senior year, two hours.)
Agricultural Engineering I.-Farm Machinery and Farm
Motors.-The course includes a study of the history of the de-
velopment, details of construction, functions, methods of opera-
tion and care of the various forms of tillage, seeding and har-
vesting machinery and farm motors. Special attention is given
to such machinery as plows, harrows, seeders and drills, corn
and Irish potato planters, cultivators and weeders, mowers and
rakes, potato diggers, spraying machines, vehicles, steam engines,
oil, air and water cooled internal-combustion engines, wind mills,
etc. (Second semester, Freshman year, two hours.)
Agricultural Engineering II.-Buildings, Fences, Roads,
Drainage and Irrigation.-In this course such topics as the con-
struction of farm residences, barns and other farm buildings, the
laying out of roads and fields; underdrainage; and irrigation
plants will be considered and the students will be given practice
in drawing plans and writing specifications. (Second semester,
Senior year, three hours.)

HORTICULTURE
PROFESSOR FLOYD.
Horticulture is applied to the cultivation of useful and orna-
mental garden plants and orchard fruits. These are the plants
most intimately associated with the private life of the home. In
a sub-tropical climate unusual opportunities for practical effort
and interesting study are presented. The wonderful variety of
plants, the peculiar problems involved in their growth and de-
velopment, and the accomplishments of those who have given
time and labor to the solution of those problems, offer inviting
fields for study and experimentation. Both the practical and the
aesthetic tendencies may be cultivated.
The department with its orchard, garden, laboratory, and

library offers fine opportunity for instruction, experiment and re-
search.
Horticulture A.-Plant Propagation.-Propagation by means
of grafting, budding, cutting, layering, etc.; seed selection and
preservation; making of hot beds and cold frames; seed testing,
and related subjects will constitute the main topics for discussion,
but some attention will also be given to elementary plant physi-
ology. (Second semester, Sub-Freshman year, 3 hours.)
Horticulture I. Olericulture. This course will be given
with special reference to growing vegetables in Florida. The sea-
sons in which the different vegetables may be grown, irrigation,
cultural methods, fertilizing and marketing constitute the chief
subjects for discussion. (Second semester, Freshman year, 3
hours.)
Horticulture II.-Greenhouse Construction and Management.
-In this course the principles underlying successful and econom-
ical Greenhouse Construction and Management will be thor-
oughly discussed, and the student will be given practical work
in the greenhouse. (First semester, Sophomore year, 3 hours.)
Horticulture III.-Plant Breeding.-The evolution of plants,
cross pollination and hybridization, improvements by selection,
Burbank's work and methods, breeding for special qualities, etc.,
are some of the topics that indicate the nature of the work.
(Second semester, Junior year, 3 hours.)
Horticulture IV. Pomology. The work in this course
deals with the principles of fruit growing. Particular attention
is paid to those fruits that are of commercial importance in this
State. The principles underlying the growing of citrus fruits,
pineapples, peaches, etc., are thoroughly discussed. (First sem-
ester, Senior year, 3 hours.)
Horticulture V. Landscape Gardening. The principles

Short Courses in Agriculture
J. J. VERNON, M. S. A., DIRECTOR.
Practically all of the Agricultural Colleges of the United
States have found short courses necessary in order to reach a
large class of young farmers and prospective farmers. It has
seemed unwise to withhold from this deserving class of wealth
producers the advantages of the equipment and instruction in
agriculture generously provided by the Government and State
appropriations. Men who have been fortunate enough to be able
to complete a high school course are fitted to enter the regular
college course. In the Short Courses the same advantages are
thrown open to those less fortunate who can not enter the regular
course, and the results obtained indicate the wisdom of the step
taken. The value of the Short Courses, not only to the young
men concerned but to the whole people who are of necessity
interested in the agricultural industry, has been satisfactorily
demonstrated, and therefore, strong short courses are offered,
designed to meet the several needs of the farmer.

TWO-YEAR COURSE IN AGRICULTURE
For the convenience and accommodation of young farmers
and young men preparing to farm who can not meet the require-
ments for entrance to the Freshman year, or who may not wish
to pursue a full college course and yet desire to obtain some
training in practical and scientific agriculture, the following short
course in agriculture is offered. The only requirements for ad-
mission is a good knowledge of the common school branches,
good moral standing, and an earnest desire to profit by the studies
pursued. The course leads to no degree and is not designed to
supplant or in any way to substitute for the regular University
course in agriculture as outlined above.
In all the preceding courses two hours of laboratory work are
reckoned as one hour in estimating the total number of hours in
any course.
