Name and History.-The University of the State of Florida
represents the culmination of a movement which originated in
territorial days.
In the Memoirs of Florida we read: "In 1836 a University
of Florida was proposed, of which Joseph M. White, Richard 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 ioo,ooo acres of land for the
establishment of the Seminaries east and west of the Suwanee
river; and the East Florida Seminary was established, first at
"-QOcala, in 1852, and later removed to Gainesville, in 1866; and the
West Florida Seminary was established at Tallahassee in 1856.
There was, however, during this period, no institution in the
State bearing the title and exercising the functions of the Uni-
versity 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 (Sec. II, 6th): "To use the available income and
appropriations to the University or Seminary Fund, in establish-
ing one or more departments of the University at such place or
places as may offer the best inducements, commencing with the
Department of Teaching and a Preparatory Department, etc., etc.
"71 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 is a credit to this State or
to any State, and shows a high ideal and purpose of which we
may well be proud. But, unfortunately, this ideal and purpose
found no tangible manifestation; and the State still continued
without an actual University.
The State Constitution of 1885 contains the following: "The
Legislature shall provide by general law for incorporating such
educational, agricultural, mechanical, mining, transportation,
mercantile, and other useful companies or associations as may be
deemed necessary; but it shall not pass any special law on any
such subject, and any such special law shall be of no effect; Pro-
vided, however, that nothing herein shall preclude special legis-
lation as to 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 the same year, (Feb. i6th, 1885), the Legis-
lature had passed An Act Recognizing the University of
Florida," which reads as follows:
"The people of the State of Florida, represented in Senatc
and Assembly, do enact as follows:


"Section I. That the Florida University as organized at the
city of Tallahassee be recognized as the University of the State,
and to 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
organization 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
a couple of years before this act was past (i. e. in 1883) the
State Board of Education had projected a plan of consolidation or
co-ordination, in accordance with which the then West Florida
Seminary was denominated "The Literary College of the Uni-
versity of Florida." Accepting this action of the State Board,
the Legislature passed this "Act Recognizing the University of
Florida." It seems probable, however, that the State Board had
in view originally a somewhat different plan from that which
found expression 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
For the support of such institutions, Section i of this act
grants to each State "an amount of public land, to be apportioned
to each State in quantity to equal thirty thousand acres for each
Senator and Representative in Congress to which the States are
respectively entitled by the appointment under the census of
186o: Provided, that no mineral lands shall be selected or pur-
chased under the provisions of this act."
In Section 4, it is required "that all moneys, derived from the
sale of the lands aforesaid by the States to which the lands are
apportioned, and from the sales of land script hereinbefore pro-


vided for, shall be invested in stocks of the United States, or of the
States, or some other safe stocks, yielding not less than five per centum
upon the par value of said stocks; and that the moneys so invested
shall constitute a perpetual fund, the capital of which shall remain
forever undiminished (except so far as may be provided in Section
fifth of this act), and the interest of which shall be inviolabl-,
appropriated, by each State which may take and claim the benefit
of this act, to the endowment, support, and maintenance of at
least one college where the leading object shall be, without ex-
cluding other scientific and classical studies, and including mili-
tary tactics, to teach such branches of learning as are related to
agriculture and the mechanic arts, in such manner as the Legis-
latures 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 assume in
accepting these grants:
"First. If any portion of the fund invested, as provided by the
foregoing section, or any portion of the interest thereon, shall, by any
action or contingency, be diminished or lost, it shall be replaced bi
the State to which it belongs so that the capital of the fund shall
remain forever undiminished; and the annual interest shall be reg-
ularly applied without diminution to the purpose mentioned in the
fourth section of this 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 purchase of land-
for sites or experimental farms, whenever authorized by the re-
spective 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 the purchase, erection, preservation, or repair of any
building or buildings."
Section 8 further demands "That the Governors of the sev-
eral States to which scrip shall be issued under this act shall be


required to report annually to Congress all sales made of such

In 1870 the Legislature of Florida, by an act entitled "An
Act to Establish the Florida Agricultural College," accepted the
Federal grant upon the conditions and under the restrictions con-
tained in the Act of Congress quoted above, and thereby entered
into a contract with the United States Government 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 8 prescribes the disposition of the funds: "Ten per
c:entum of the proceeds of the sale of the script, or of the land, may
be expended for the purpose of a site for an experimental farm.
The remainder of the proceeds shall be invested in stocks of the
United States, or of some of the States of the Union, bearing an
annual interest of not less than six per centumn on their par value, and
shall remain a permanent fund forever. The annual interest of
the fund shall be regularly applied without diminution to the pur-
poses set forth in Section 2 of this act. Donations may be made
for specific. purposes, and shall be applied to the objects for which
they were granted."
Section 9 provides that "No portion of the principal or inter-
est of the fund shall be applied, directly or indirectly, under any
pretense whatever, to the purchase, erection, preservation, or re-
pairs of any building or buildings, or for expenses incurred in
selling the scrip, locating the lands, or in managing the funds
of the lands."


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 was 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. From this fund the college re-
ceives about seventy-seven hundred ($7,700) dollars of annual
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 suitable
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,ooo) dollars, the
college was established there.
Upon the completion of the main building in the fall of i '4.
the doors of the institution were thrown open to student-, and
from that date there has been a steady increase in- its efficient
and usefulness.
In the second catalogue of the new institution, dated J une,
1887," we find in the roster of the Faculty "Rev. J. Kost, LL. D.,
Professor of Moral Philosophy and Geology, and Curator of
Museum." And a foot-note adds this interesting inform tion.
"Rev. J. Kost, LL. D., is also Chancellor of the Univerity of
Florida." The exact nature of the relationship indicated by! this
statement may be inferred from the following statement w hiL:h is
found in the same catalogue (1887):
"At the annual meeting of the Board of Trustees of the
Florida Agricultural College, held 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 College believe that the educational interests of this State
would be advanced and furthered by the consolidation of the Agri-
:ultural 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 follow-
ing year, the statement that Dr. Kost is "Chancellor of the Uni-
versity" is dropped; but the resolution quoted above is again
printed. The following year the resolution also disappears; and
the 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, and three years later the Agricultural
College became a beneficiary of the Morrill Act. The former
act provides the Agricultural Experiment Station with an income
from the National Government of $15,000 per year; while the
Morrill Act affords the College an annual income of $12,500.
The expenditure of both these sums is carefully restricted by
the Act of Congress which provides them and which specifies in
each case the purposes for which they 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 r885;
and in 1903 that act was repealed, and the title was transferred to
the Agricultural College. The act of 1903 reads as follows:
S'Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
"Section i. That the Florida Agricultural College as at pres-
ent defined by law be, and is hereby changed to, and shall be
known as, the University of Florida.


Sec. 2. Any law inconsistent herewith be and the same is
hereby repealed.
Sec. 3. This act to take effect upon its passage and approval
by the Governor." (Approved April 30, 1903.)
In accordance with this act, the then Agricultural College at
once assumed the title of the University of Florida.
The University of Florida existed for two years. By an act
of the Legislature of 1904-05 (known as the Buckman Bill"),
this institution together with the Florida State College at Talla-
hassee, the Normal School at DeFuniak Springs, the East Flor-
ida Seminary at Gainesville, the South Florida College at Bartow,
and the Agricultural Institute in Osceola county was abolished.
In their stead, this act ordains:
"Section 12. That there shall be established, and there is
hereby created the following institutions of higher education in
this State, to-wit: One University to be known as the University
of the State of Florida,' and one Female Seminary to be known
as the Florida Female College.' "
For their management, it provides:
Sec. 13. That there is hereby created a 'Board of Control '
which shall consist of five citizens of this State who shall be ap-
pointed by the Governor and their terms of office shall be for four
years, except that, of the first board appointed under this act, two
members thereof shall be appointed for the term of two years and
three members thereof shall be appointed for the term of four
years. "
The University of the State of Florida, thus established.
begins its scholastic work in September, 1905.
Location.-Acting under a provision of the Buckman Bill,
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 dc-


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 town of
GAINESVILLE as the location for the new institution.
For the scholastic year ipo5-o6, the work of the University will
.. conducted at Lake City on the campus of the former University of
Grounds and Buildings.-The domain to be used in 1905-06
comprises three hundred and fifty-five acres. The tract on which
the buildings are located lies in the southern extremity of the
t:,wn, sufficiently removed from the business quarter to avoid its
distracting influences, yet near enough to be reached quickly in
case of necessity. Of this tract, the thirty acres immediately sur-
rounding the buildings are devoted to a campus, a drill ground,
and the tennis courts. The remainder of the land, with the ex-
ception of some of the original hummock, is utilized for experi-
mental purposes and as a farm.
The buildings, nine in number, are lighted throughout with
electricity, supplied with artesian water, and furnished with all
modern improvements.
The Main Building is a brick-veneered edifice three stories in
height and 90 feet long by 50 feet wide. In it are the Assembly
Hall, Lecture Rooms, and the offices of the University.
The new Science Hall is a beautiful brick structure after the
Spanish style, 130 feet long, ioo feet deep, and is four stories in
height. It is thoroughly equipped, in its Laboratories and Lec-
ture Rooms; for instruction and experiment in Science, and com-
pares favorably with any similar building in the South.
The Chemical Laboratory is a frame and brick building of two
stories and a basement. It contains the Chemical and Physical
The General Library and Reading Room is located in a com-
fortable frame building of one story.


The Dormitories consist, at present, of two frame and brick
buildings, each two stories in height, in one of which the Dining
Hall is situated; and the new brick dormitory, built to replace Foster
Hall, destroyed by fire in 1903, three stories in height, containing
all the modern improvements. Each apartment consists of a study
and bed room, thus insuring the health and comfort of the occu-
pants. The building is divided into two sections by a fire-proof
wall, thus minimizing any danger from fire.
The Flagler Gymnasium is a brick structure 137 feet long and
40 feet wide. It is of Oriental design and makes a pleasing archi-
tectural contrast to the Science Hall. It consists of a main gym-
nasium floor with a suspended running track, and a basement in
which are located the dressing-rooms, lavatories, bath-rooms,
swimming pool, etc. The instructor's offices and the heating
plant are in the wings.
The Mechanical Engineering Building is a large frame struc-
ture two stories in height, in which there is some excellent ma-
chinery, and where students are instructed in wood and metal
work, drawing, etc.
Besides these nine buildings there is a small but pretty green-
house which is used in connection with the work in Botany and
Experiment Station.-In accordance with the provisions of
the "Hatch" Act, which furnishes annually fifteen thousand
($.5,ooo) dollars for the purpose, the Florida Agricultural Ex-
periment Station was incorporated by the Trustees as a distinct
department of the institution in 1887. The station is organized
primarily for experiment and research, rather than for instruction
Experience has shown, however, that by judicious management
the Experiment Station may be made an important factor in the
agricultural education of the students in giving them an insight
into experimental investigation of agricultural problems impo -
sible under ordinary conditions. The station work will become,


in the near future, the center of all agricultural instruction in
the university.
For the practical benefit of those engaged in agricultural pur-
suits throughout the State, the results of the investigations con-
ducted at the station are published in the form of bulletins, which
are for free distribution. They will be mailed regularly and free
of charge to any citizen of the State upon application to the
From time to time Press Bulletins, dealing briefly with cur-
rent agricultural problems, are issued for distribution to the vari-
ous newspapers of the State, which are requested to give them
circulation among their constituency. Any farmer, or other citi-
zen of the State, who may desire to receive these Press Bulletins
direct can obtain them on request.
Correspondence and suggestions from farmers and others
interested in the work are much appreciated. Inquiries upon
matters of importance to the farmer will, as far as possible, be
cheerfully answered.
Endowment.-The income of the University, apart from leg-
islative appropriations, is derived principally from two sources-
"The Agricultural College Fund" bonds, yielding an annual
interest of about seventy-seven hundred ($7,700) dollars; and
one-half of the "Morrill Fund," amounting now to twelve thou-
sand five hundred ($12,500) dollars. The entire income is thus
about twenty thousand two hundred ($20,200) dollars.
State Appropriations.-The Legislature of 1905 appropriated
one hundred'and fifty thousand ($i50,ooo) dollars for the insti-
tutions under the direction of the Board of Control.
Scope.-As the Agricultural College of the State, the scope
of the institution was well expressed in Section 4 of the Act of
Congress (1862) under which the institution was established:
"The leading object shall be, without excluding 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 manner as the Legislatures of the States may respect-
ively prescribe, in order to promote a liberal and practical ed uca-
tion of the industrial classes in the several pursuits and profes-
sions of life."
Now, however, since the Legislature has made the former
Agricultural College the University of the State, the scope of the
institution must necessarily be enlarged. Without abandoning
or weakening the practical courses in agriculture and the mechanic
arts alluded to above, the University projects a much larger
scheme, which will bring it in line with similar institution- in
other States. The details of this enlargement can best be seen io
the various courses which the institution now offers to its students,
especial attention being called to the Bachelor of Arts Cource,
and the course in General Science, leading to the Bachelor of
Science degree.
Admission.-Applicants may gain admission to the classe- of
the university by one of the following methods:
I. Students from the public high schools or other officially
accredited schools or academies, by presenting a certificate which
states in detail that the work required for entrance into the de-
sired class has been satisfactorily accomplished.
II. Students from another college or university in good
standing, unless "dishonorably dismissed," by presenting a cer-
tificate from the institution previously attended. These wiil be
classified according to the ground already covered.
III. All other students by passing written examinations n1

in June and September of each year on days specified in the Uni-
versity Calendar, both at Lake City and at such other places as
may be arranged by correspondence with the President of the


r. For the Freshman Class:
No student will be admitted to the Freshman class who has
not completed the work required of eleventh grade students in
the regular High Schools of the State, except as hereinafter speci-
fied. Students who do not bring certificates of this grade from
officially accredited High Schools will be required to pass written
entrance examinations on the following subjects:
Mathematics.-In Arithmetic, the examination will embrace
fractions, percentage, profit and loss, commission, insurance,
taxes, duties and customs, stocks and investments, interest, par-
tial payments, discount, equation of payments, and evolution. In
Algebra, the examination will embrace factoring, highest com-
mon factor, least common multiple, fractions, simple equations,
inequalities, involution, evolution, and numerical quadratics.
In Geometry, all of plane Geometry is required.
English.- (i) Grammar. A thorough knowledge of English
Grammar both in its technical aspects and in its bearings upon
speech and writing will be required.
(2) Rhetoric. A year's training in any standard High School
Rhetoric and a study of the English Classics recommended by
the Association of Southern Colleges.
For Careful Study, Macaulay's Essay on Mil/ton, Shakspere's
M/acbeth, Burke's Speech on Conciliation, Macaulay's Essay on
. !ddison, Milton's Minor Poems.
For Reading, Carlyle's Essay on Burns, Goldsmith's Vicar
t.F Wakefield, Shakspere's Julius Caesar, Tennyson's Princess,
Coleridge's Ancient Mariner, Eliot's Silas Alarner, Lowell's
I ision of Sir Launfal, Scott's Ivanhoe, Shakspere's Aferchant of
f'enice, the Sir Roger de Coverley Papers, should be used in prep-
aration. Questions on two from each group will be asked.
No applicant deficient in spelling, grammar, punctuation,
or paragraphing will be admitted.


Latin.-Three full years' work at least in this study is re-
quired. The student should have completed some Beginner's
Latin Book such as Collar and Daniels', Harkness' Easy Method,
or a similar work. In addition he should have read four books of
Casar's Gallic War or its equivalent and two orations of Cicero.
This requirement does not apply to students intending to take
the Agricultural or the Engineering courses.
Electives.-In addition to the preceding subjects all students
must offer at least one year's work in either one of the following:
Greek.-The student should have completed some intro-
ductory book such as Gleason and Atherton's First Greek Book
or White's Beginner's Greek Book and have read one book of
Xenophon's Anabasis.
Modern Language.-An elementary course in either French
or German, consisting of a thorough drill in the rudiments of
the grammar, and the reading of easy prose authors.
History.-A year's work in History equivalent to the work
done in the eleventh grade of the High School.
Elementary Science.-A year's work in either Physics,
istry, or Zoology and Botany.
In all cases "a year's work" represents five hours of recita-
tion work per week for the entire school term. A student v, h,.
is deficient in not more than one of the subjects required for
entrance may be admitted with his regular class upon recommerI: a-
tion of the Committee on Entrance Requirements, said condition
to be removed during the first two years of his college course
2. For the Normal Department.
The requirements for entrance to the Normal Department
will be found on page II9.
Special Students.-Students who may desire to take special
courses will be allowed, upon recommendation of the Committe.i
on Courses and Degrees, to take those classes for which they nm:,
be prepared. Such students will be subject to all the laws an.i


regulations of the university. In no case will these special courses
lead to a regular degree; but a certificate, showing the work done,
may be given at the discretion of the head of the department. In
the case of minor students entering the university, parents or
guardians are earnestly advised to insist upon one of the regular
courses being pursued. No student shall take less than 15 hours
work per week.
Examinations.-Promotion from class to class, and final
graduation, are determined by the regular semi-annual examina-
tions in combination with the class standing for the year. No
student will be promoted to the next higher class in any subject
whose grade, thus determined, falls below 60 per cent.; and any
student who fails in more than teft.if his required work
for any given year will bp~riqtfet to tAke't i~'vtk 'f that year
again. : .*
No student will.heefmitted to take the work of 'tb4.mnior
class until allthe.o*Rb6f his Fr shhtai eag-hal have beeila -
factorily acconmpljghed; and na..stdiat .ray" eni r the Sefior*:
class until he has, in like manner, completed all the work of his'
Sophomore year.
The cases of special students will be dealt with by the Com-
mittee on Courses and Degrees.
Courses and Degrees.-The university offers eight courses
leading to the Bachelor's degree. Of these, one is in the main
devoted to the study of language and literature and leads to the
degree of Bachelor of Arts. The other seven, which are denom-
inated according to their main subject, lead to the degrees of
Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, in Mathematics, in Natural
History, in Agriculture or Horticulture, in Mechanical Engineer-
ing, in Civil Engineering, and in Electrical Engineering. The
usual time for the completion of any one of these courses is four
In addition to these full courses, the University offers short
special courses in Agriculture and Mechanic Arts. These courses
require two years for their completion.


In addition to these undergraduate courses, the university
offers Graduate courses leading to the Master's degree in either
Arts or Science. The degree of Master of Arts will be conferred
upon students who have completed the course leading to the
Bachelor of Arts degree in this institution, or in an institution of
like standing, and who shall satisfactorily complete one year of
resident work (12 hours per week) in this institution. Six hours
of this work must be in one subject and of a grade higher than
any offered for the A. B. degree in that subject; the other six
hours are to be determined and distributed by the Professor in
charge of the department in which the major subject is selected.
The requirements for the degree of Master of Science, which
follows the degree.of Bacblepr-.o.Zcience, are similar to those for
the degree of'MasVe..f Arts. : *.' .,
ettfif~ es.,-A certificate of prodCiepgy will be given to
those 1io satisfactorily complete the prdIesi.ef short courses in
'1.ei nic Arts.aW iF..A ilIturt. .*.
'.": Honors aid A idfals:-Th-' t members of the Senior Class who
make the highest and next highest averages in all their studies,
during the whole period of their contemporaneous work, shall
receive the First and Second Honors respectively in their class.
The recipient of the First Honor shall deliver the Valedictory at
Commencement; the recipient of the Second Honor, the
Medals are offered in the University (i) For the best drilled
man in the whole batallion; (2) For the best declaimer in the
Freshman and Sophomore Classes; (3) For the best original
oration in the Junior Class; (4) For the best original oration in
the Senior Class. These contests are all settled in public com-
petition at Commencement. The speakers are limited to four
from each class, selected by the Faculty.
Expenses.- Tuition.-No tuition is charged to students
whose home is in Florida. All other students will be required
to pay a tuition fee of twenty ($20) dollars per year.


Registration Fee.-A registration fee of $5 per session will be
charged all students, except one scholarship student from each
county in Florida.
Board and Room Rent.-Students boarding in the Dining
Hall will be furnished -rooms, heated and lighted, and board at
a cost of twelve dollars and a half ($12.50) per calendar month,
payable in advance. No deduction will be made for an absence
of less than one week.
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 of the standard works in his special
Uniform.-All students, except those in the Normal Depart-
ment, are required to provide themselves with a uniform, which
is of the best quality Charlottesville cadet gray, and costs about
fifteen ($15) dollars, being 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 them-
selves with a regulation shirt and hat and two pairs of white
duck trousers, obtainable at a slight expense.
Laundry.-Students arrange for their own laundry.
Furniture.-All rooms are partially furnished. The furni-
ture consists of two iron bedsteads and mattresses, chiffonier or
wardrobe, table, washstand and chairs. The students are re-
quired to provide all other articles, including pillows, bedding,
washbowl, pitcher, mirror, half curtains, etc.
Cost per Year. -The entire cost of a year's attendance varies,
for the average student, between one hundred and twenty ($120)
and one hundred and fifty ($150) dollars.
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.
Remittances.-All remittances should be made to the Auditor,
The University of the State of Florida, Lake City, Fla.
Student Labor.-While it is impossible to guarantee labor to
any student, many of them find an opportunity to work, in the
shops and elsewhere, thus paying a portion of their expenses.
Exclusive of the prescribed practicums, manual labor for the uni-
versity is remunerated at rates from six to ten cents per hour
according to proficiency. Such work, however, must in no way
interfere with the regular university duties.
Government.-The university offers first-class advantages to
those students who desire a liberal and practical education of a
high grade and low cost, and its government is adapted to those
who entei- with earnestness of purpose to attain this end. Rea-
sonable efforts will be made to lead all students toward this goal;
but those who manifest, after a sufficient trial, no tendency to
conform to the requirements for diligent work and correct be-
havior, will be requested to withdraw. The university is neither
a reformatory for refractory students nor a suitable place for idlers
and triflers, and the atmosphere of morality and studiousness will
be maintained.
Furloughs.-No furloughs will be granted during the scho-
lastic year except upon written application to the President, from
parents or guardian. It is requested that students shall not be
taken from their work except in cases of urgent necessity, the loss
of valuable time involved and the demoralizing effect of such action
being obvious.
Attendance Upon Duties.-No student will be allowed to
enter any class or to discontinue any class in which he is enrolled
without written permission from the President. Unauthorized
action in this respect renders the student liable to suspension.


Students who wilfully absent themselves from classes render
themselves liable to suspension without notice.
Students who discontinue their work at the college without
obtaining an honorable discharge from the President will appear
in the records as dishonorably dismissed.
Residence.-The students are, in general, required to reside
in the Dormitories. Upon an application from parents or guar-
dians which meets with the approval and consent of the President
of the University, students will be allowed to reside in the town.
They will be under the same regulations as are those residing on
the campus.
Religious Exercises.-All students are required to attend a
daily morning service in the assembly hall, consisting of a selec-
tion from the Bible, a prayer and a song. The service is conducted
by the members of the Faculty.
The university is absolutely non-sectarian, but attendance
upon some form of public worship at least once each Sunday is
required of every student. The choice of the place of worship
rests entirely with the student or parents. The pastors of all
churches take an active interest in the spiritual welfare of the
students A letter from the parent or home church, addressed to
the pastor or religious body in the town, will call forth especial
care and attention to the student in whose behalf it is written.
Religious Organizations.-There will be a branch of the
Y. M. C. A. in the university, to meet every Sunday. In their
meetings, the practical rather than the theoretical phases of Chris-
tianity will be freely and candidly talked over, and the students
,.ill discuss'among themselves the special problems which arise in
-tudent life. Members of the Faculty, the ministers of the city,
nd distinguished Christian workers will be frequently invited to
address the association. Bible classes are organized in connection
with the work.
Christian students, on entering the university, should by all
means become identified with these organizations, and parents


should counsel and encourage them in so doing. A note of intro-
duction to the president of the organization will cause espccial
attention to be given a new student.
Literary Societies.-The literary societies are invaluable ad-
juncts to the educational work of the university. They are con-
ducted entirely by the students and maintain a high level oi en-
deavor. In addition to the required Forensics, the students here
obtain much practical experience in the conduct of public assem-
blies. They assimilate knowledge of parliamentary law, acquire
ease and grace of delivery, learn to argue with calmness of thought
and courtesy of manner, and become skillful in thinking and in
presenting their thought clearly and effectively when facing :n
All students are earnestly advised to connect themselves vit h
these societies, and to take a constant and active part in their
Library.-The Library consists of about three thousand vol-
umes. Additional books are purchased as rapidly as poss-iblk.
and the library is administered in the belief that it exists for the
use and benefit of the student body. Consequently, every means
is employed to facilitate and encourage their constant use of it-
resources with as little restriction as is compatible with the proper
handling and preservation of the books.
As designated depository of Federal documents, it is in-
creased each year by valuable governmental publications, and it
receives in exchange the bulletins and reports of all agricultural
stations in the Union.
In the reading room many of the papers of the state and
nation and a good number of literary and general periodical- are
always accessible.
Athletics.-It is the policy of the University to foster clean,
amateur athletics; but the institution proposes to insist that ath-
letics shall be of the character described. To this end, the foll .' -


ing rules and regulations will govern all athletic contests partici-
pated in by students of the University:
i. The management of all athletic organizations which are
to represent the University in a public capacity out of town must
apply to the Committee on Student Organizations for permission,
and, in case the request is favorably considered, must file with the
President a list of members who are to be absent, not exceeding
the number specified in the request to the Committee. Each mem-
ber on the list will then receive notice from the Committee, con-
taining a recommendation that he be excused; such notice is not
effective as an excuse until countersigned by the President.
2. No person shall represent the University on any athletic
team, either at home or abroad,-
(a) If he is not a regularly registered student of the Uni-
(b) If he is on probation, that is, if by vote of the Faculty
he has been duly notified that a repetition of failure in work,
neglect of duty, or breach of discipline, will result in his exclu-
lon from the University.
(c) If he has previously represented any other college or
university in a given branch of athletics, unless a full year shall
have elapsed.
(d) If he has previously represented this University, or any
other college or university, or both, in a given branch of athletics
for four years in the aggregate.
(c) If he receives, or has received since September, 1904, any
rcmuneration'or consideration of any sort for his services as per-
former, player, coach, or otherwise, apart from such necessary
-.,:pense in excess of ordinary expenses, as are actually incurred
by him as a member of a college team or of a permanent amateur
organization in connection with occasional amateur contests.
This rule excludes any person who competes for money or
money prizes, who plays on so-called ''Summer nines," or with
professional teams, or who directly or indirectly receives remuner-


ation apart from actual expenses as player, coach, trainer, official,
or proprietor, or manager, in any athletic exercise or contest.
(f) If he is a member of the staff of instruction of the Uni-
versity, even if he be registered as a candidate for a degree.
The application of this rule to the cases of teaching fellows
will be left to the Committee on Student Organizations.
(g) If he does not secure at the beginning of each season a
special certificate of satisfactory physical condition from the col-
lege physician and the physical director. Such certificate may
be cancelled at any time in case the college physician or the
physical director decides that the continuation of training is likely
to operate to the physical injury of such student.
3. (a) No one shall represent this institution on any baseball
or track team who shall have matriculated later than thirty days
after the beginning of the second semester.
(b) Any person receiving conditions, or making failures, in
one-third or more of the subjects in his course shall be disquali-
fied from playing on any athletic team, as aforesaid.
(c) No minor student shall flay on any athletic team if his
parent, or guardian, indicate objections in writing to the President
of the University.
4. The selection of all coaches for the University teams shall
be subject to the approval of the President.
5. No schedule of games shall be made with other institu-
tions or teams unless approved by the Committee on Student
Fraternities.-The University admits fraternities among its
student organizations. These organizations are subject to all the
rules and regulations of the University, and are under the super-
vision of the Committee on Student Organizations in the matter
of their relations to the University, though, in all their private
activities, they are entirely in the hands and control of their


Gifts to the University.-The educational facilities of many of
the State institutions of the South have been materially increased
in recent years by substantial 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 re-
ceived and acknowledged as contributions to the upbuilding of
education and culture in the State.


The work of the University is divided into the following
Departments or Schools:
L The School of Language and Literature.-This offers all
the advantages of a general education, chiefly literary in its
nature, to those students who desire to enter the Ministry, the
Law, or Politics, or who desire a very broad and thorough gen-
eral training before they begin to prepare for their technical
work. The courses offered cover a very wide range of study,
and the principle of electives in the upper classes gives the stu-
dent an opportunity to vary his course to a very considerable
extent according to his individual tastes and needs. The regular
course covers four years, and leads to the degree of Bachelor of
IL The General Scientific School,-Which embraces the
1. Chemical Course,
2. Mathematical Course,
3. Natural History Course.
These courses are named from their chief element, and offer
the student with a taste or need for Chemistry, Mathematics, or
Natural History, unusual opportunities to devote himself to his
chosen subject, and to fit himself either for further technical work
along these lines, or for the study of Medicine, Surgery, Phar-
macy, as a profession. These courses are of four years' duration,
and lead to the degree of Bachelor of Science.
II. The School of Agriculture,-Embracing the courses in
1. Agriculture,
2. Horticulture,
3. Short Course in Agriculture.
These courses are intended for the practical farmer, stock-
raiser, and grower of fruits and vegetables. They embrace, and


treat from a strictly practical point of view, all of those subjects
about which the farmer or fruit-grower needs information for suc-
cess in his work,-for example, agricultural chemistry, soils and
soil analysis, fertilizers, veterinary science, surveying, rural law,
botany, horticulture, forestry, etc. Courses i and 2 require four
years for their completion, and lead to the degree of Bachelor of
Science in Agriculture; course 3 requires two years and leads to
a certificate of proficiency.
IV. The Technological School,-Embracing the courses in
1. Mechanical Engineering,
2. Electrical Engineering,
3. Civil Engineering,
4. Short Course in Mechanic Arts.
These courses are designed for students who desire to give
their college work a strictly practical direction, and to prepare
immediately for their life work in one of these lines. Every course
requires a very large amount of practical work, and the student
who successfully completes these courses will be prepared to enter
upon his active profession immediately. Courses I, 2 and 3 ex-
tend over four full years, and issue in the degree of Bachelor of
Science in Mechanical, Civil, and Electrical Engineering, re-
spectively; course 4 covers two years and leads to a certificate of
No Latin or Greek is required in Schools III and IV.
V. The School of Pharmacy.-This School will be opened in
1906, and will offer a full two years' course in Pharmacy, lead-
ing to the degree of Ph. G.
VI. The Normal School,-Embracing these courses:
1. The Common School Teachers' Course,
2. The Normal Course,
2. The Graduates' Professional Course.
These courses are intended primarily for the teachers of the
State. Course i covers one year; course 2, three years, of a grade
beyond that represented by course i; and course 3 covers one
year beyond course 2. The student who completes course I will


receive a certificate. The completion of course 2 will entitle the
student to a diploma, with the degree of L. I. Course 3 leads
to the degree of B. Ped.
The Summer School.-A regular Summer School of six
weeks' duration will be conducted by the Faculty of the Uni-
versity. The work will be arranged for teachers who desire better
equipment or preparation for State and County Examinations,
and for students who expect to apply for admission to the Uni-
ersity or other institutions.

The department is well equipped for carrying on work .,t
instruction. Microscopes and accessories are available for ,n.,rk
of investigation. For instruction in Botanical work a good Imcr,-
tome, student's microtome, embedders, apparatus for micro-ph1:-
tography, glassware and apparatus for Physiological Botany, are
found in the department.
The library contains a representative collection of works on
Botany and Horticulture and allied subjects.
In Horticultural work the greenhouses are used for in- true-
tion, and in addition a small but well equipped laboratory is i\aiil-
able. In the orchard, blocks of peaches, plums, persim:uiun-.
pecans, oranges, grapes, and figs are found, affording excellent
opportunities for the study of these separate groups of frui,;.


The herbarium contains a representative collection of speci-
mens of Florida plants as well as a large number from other parts
of the country.
The cryptogamic herbarium, although not large, contains a
good working collection of economic species to which additions
are being constantly made.
Material for class work in Botany can be easily obtained at
all seasons of the year. The flora found in the vicinity of Lake
City is peculiarly rich both in phaherogamic and cryptogamic
plants. In addition material can usually be obtained from the
Horticultural grounds, from the greenhouse and from the Agri-
cultural Department.
Botany Ia.-Elementary Botan7,y.-Leciurcs and Laboratory
WVork.-This subject embraces the study of morphology of roots,
stems, leaves, fruits, and seeds, and terms used in Descriptive
Botany. A large part of the work in plant physiology is per-
formed in the greenhouse or in the physiological laboratory. (Re-
wuired of all scientific and agricultural students; first semester,
Freshman year, 3 hours.)

i ., 5 hours.)
Horticultural Reading.-By the time the student has reached
the .ast half of the Senior year, he is in a position to do independ-
iilt %\ork. A well-equipped library enables him to become ac-
q ua ii ted with the horticultural writers on various subjects. Under
the -upervision of the instructor a large portion of his time is
given up to reading along certain specified lines.
Investigation.-Throughout the Senior year each student in
the Horticultural course is required to pursue some line of origi-
nal research. Every possible assistance is given in the work and
the student's time is devoted to some problem agreed upon by
the professor in charge.



The facilities for instruction in chemistry compare favor-
ably with those of the larger institutions of the South, and are
being steadily improved. Besides all necessary glassware and
chemicals, the department is equipped with a five horse-power
gas-..line engine, dynamo, grinding machinery, microscopes, bal-
a inc;, spectroscope, polariscope, and other instruments for special
investigation. The rooms devoted to chemistry include a com-
mndious lecture room provided with the necessary facilities for
demonstration, a capacious, well lighted and ventilated laboratory

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 is 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
In the second semester the laboratory work is designed to

to quantitative analysis, the exercises being selected with a view
to f.-miliarizing the students with the leading quantitative opera-
tr'Ous involved in the gravimetric, volumetric and electrolytic
met hods in vogue. As far as possible, the work of each individual
i _-elected to aid especially in the line of work he may wish to
1'nrue in the future, as medicine, pharmacy, analytical chem-
'-try, etc.
During the second semester the laboratory work is still
further specialized for each student and is devoted especially to
investigation on some one subject, leading to material for a thesis.
During two hours a week a course is given in chemical tech-
nolo:gy which comprises a consideration of the chemical principles
iuni .,lved in the manufacture, refining and preparation of the lead-
inc products of commercial importance. Thorp's Outlines of

The work of the Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior years in
this department is the same as the work in Mechanical Engineer-
ing for those years. The work of the Senior year is as follows:
Electricity I.-Dynamo.-Electric Alachinery.-The principles
of action of direct-current dynamos and motors; calculations of
dynamos and motors; determination of characteristic curves; de-
signing of electrical machinery; electrical testing.
Alternating Currents.-Principles of single phase and poly-
phase alternating currents; alternating current machinery; theory
of the transformer. (Both semesters, Senior year, 8 hours.)
Electricity II.-Electric Lighting and Transmission of Power.-
Electric lighting; photometry; principles of illumination; design
of distributing systems.
Telegraph and Telephone Engineering.-Design of telegraph
and telephone lines; submarine cables. (Both semesters, Senior
year, 2 hours.)




English.-The work of the department is designed to meet
the requirements for a practical and liberal education, and is re-
garded 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 view-points
before all classes as necessary to a mastery of their native lan-
English I.-Composition and Rhetoric.-This course is de-
signed to train the students in methods of clear and forceful ex-
pression. 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 pri-
vate reading course is assigned to the individual student.
(Throgoughout he year for all Freshmen, 3 hours.)
English II.-History of Language and Literature. This
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 literature, 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 instruc-
tion. 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, 3 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 Litera-
ture. 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 assigned to
each student. (Required in all courses except Engineering; first
semester of Junior year, 3 hours.)
English IIIa.-Shaksfere 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 lectures are
given by the instructor. Readings in the English Drama from
the Cycle plays to contemporary production are assigned to the
students. (Required in all courses except Engineering; second se-
mester of Junior year, 3 hours.)
English IVb.-The English Novel.-In recognition of the
fact that a large part of the reading of most Americans is in thi.:
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 read-
ing in this class of literature may not become mere intellectual
dissipation. (Elective, fittf semester of Senior year, hoq rs.)


English IVW.-Thec Romantic Revival.-This course is
plailned as a study in literary movement. The causes and forces
which underlie the movement, its phenomena and the authors and
n :rk- \x which exhibit them, and a comparison with other move-
ment., in literature will be considered. The work of Prof. Beers
\\ill t.I used as a basis and the student will be led, by means of
c;Xt en'ive reading, by investigation and essays and by lectures on
the \a ider ranges of the subjects, to realize the truth of his state-
nient-. I Elective, second semester of Senior year, 3 hours.)
English V.-Anglo-Saxon Grammar and Reading.-The
-tui.lriIt ii drilled in the forms of the early language and an ele-
ttactuari view of their relations to the other members of the Aryan
f:iiillyl and their development into Modern English are given.
The t xts in Bright's Anglo-Saxon Reader are studied and Cook's
clitition .f the Judith is read. (Elective for funiors, both semesters, 3
c.,* I. I
English VI.-Chaucer and the Middle English Grammar.-
T'urin., the first semester the works of Chaucer are read in and
.tit of :lass. The pronunciation, grammatical forms, scansion,
conilitiot of text, analogues and sources are closely examined.
Dturingi the second semester, Morris and Sheats' Specimens, Part
II, i. studied in connection with informal lectures on Middle
In.,li_.h viewed as developing from Anglo-Saxon into Modern (Elective for Seniors who have taken English V; both se-
.,. :, hours.)
German.-The usual methods of instruction (conversation,
couImp:-.oiton," grammar, and translation) are employed in the de-
Fpirtrmnut, but all as subsidiary to the desired end, which is to
cuoble the student to read the language with ease.
German A.-Elementary Course.-This course consists of a
t horo:ugh drill in pronunciation and important grammatical forms,
I ict nt iIon, written exercises, memorizing of vocabularies and short
poI i-., translation of about 1oo pages of easy text, and sight read-


ing. It is intended for students who are unprepared to begin the
college work in the department. (5 hours, both semesters.)
German I.-Intermediate Course. -Translation in class of in-
termediate and advanced texts, sight reading, monthly assign-
ments for private reading, advanced grammar including syntax,
and prose composition will embrace the work of the year. (Fresh-
man or Junior elective, 3 hours throughout year.)
German II.-Advanced Course.-A number of the works of
Lessing, Goethe, and Schiller will be read in class and as private
assignments: and, in addition, a History of German Literature
will be studied. (Sophomore or Senior elective, 3 hours throughout
German III.-Mliddle High German.--Paul's Mittelhoch-
deutche Grammatic and Bachmann's Mittelhochdeutches Lese-
buch will be used in this course. (Elective for Juniors who have
taken II, 3 hours, both semesters.)
German IV.-Old High German.-Braune's Althochdeutche
Grammatic and Althochdeutches Lesebuch. (Elective for Seniors
awho have taken III, 3 hours, both semesters.)



Since history is so comprehensive, it is impossible to cover
the whole field in a few courses. The primary object of the fol-
lowing courses is to give the student some idea of the growth of
nationalities and of political institutions. Considerable library
reading will be required in all classes. In the higher classes the
students will be given subjects for investigation for training in
the habits of research and independent thinking.


History I.-Afledivaal and Modern Europe.-This course covers
the period from the dissolution of the Roman Empire to modern
times. Special attention will be given to Monasticism, the growth
of the Papacy, Feudalism, Absolutism, and the rise of the Na-
tional States, the Renaissance, the Reformation, and the political
reforms in England. Text-book: Robinson's History of Western
Europe, with collateral reading and supplementary lectures.
i Required of A. B. students; both semesters, Freshman year, 2

History II.- The French Revolution and Europe in the Nine-
.. 'nt/h Centur'.-A careful study is made of the social and financial
condition of France before the Revolution and of the influence of
the Philosophers upon the course of events. The career of Na-
poleon is studied chiefly for such of his work as had a permanent
influence. The Congress of Vienna, the subsequent revolutions,
lthe unification of Italy and of Germany, the Eastern Question,
and the partition of Africa receive due attention. Text-books:
Lowell's Eve of the French Revolution, Mathews's French
Revolution, and Mueller's Political History of Recent Times.
I Required of A. B. students; both semesters, Sophomore year, 2

History III.-Political and Constitutional History of the United
..'/aes.-The whole period of our history will be covered, but
-pecial attention will be given to certain subjects. Chief of these
v. ill be the distinction between the corporate and proprietary colo-
nies, the machinery of imperial control, the development of a senti-
nment for Union and the revolt from England, the formation and
adoption of the Constitution, the division into National and States
Rights parties, expansion, slavery debates, secession, Reconstruc-
tion and its undoing, tariff and financial legislation, the War with
Spain and its results. Some of the American History Series will
I.e used as texts, but much library work will be required. (Elect-
. :e; both semesters, Junior or Senior year, 3 hours.)


History IV.-Political and Consiitutional History of England.-
Emphasis will be laid upon the foundation of the Nation by the
union of the petty kingdoms, the introduction and decay of Feud-
alism, the judiciary, the rise of Parliament, and the struggle for
religious and political liberty. (Elective; both semesters, Senioi
,year, 3 hours.)
The second two of the following courses have been arranged
with special reference to the needs of those who expect to follow
the law or enter politics; the other two are intended to serve as
introductory to the study of the problems of society. Though they
are not required to do so, students will find it to their advantage
to take History III or IV as introductory to Public Law I and II.
Economics Ia.-Economics.-An elementary course, introduc-
ing the student to the general theory of economics and suggesting
applications to present day problems. (Required of all students;
first semester, Senior year, 5 hours.)
Economics Ib.-Sociology.-An introductory course dealing
with such questions as the origin of society, the causes and modes
of social activity, the origin and evolution of the family and the
State. Some of the present day problems will also be taken up,
such as the tramp problem, the treatment of criminals, especially
juvenile offenders, and the care of the poor and aged. (Requirea
of all students; second semester, Senior year, 3 hours.)
Economics IIa.-Public Law i.-A study of the governments
of the principal European and American States with special ref-
erence to their constitutions. The work will be based on the texts
of the constitutions and on Burgess and Wilson. Some attention
will also be given to the main principles of political science. (For
Juniors or Seniors; first semester ipo6-o7, 3 hours.)
Economics IIb.---Public Law 2.-International Law.-Davis's
Elements of International Law will be used as a text, but much
emphasis will be laid upon the study of cases and of diplomatic
papers. (For Juniors or Seniors; second semester 90o6-07, 3 hours.)




The study of the Classics contributes largely to general cul-
ture. In addition to the recognized and peculiar disciplinary
\.i lue of such studies, and their conspicuous service in cultivating
thel literary sense and developing literary taste, they have a more
innmediate value and office as aids to the comprehension and
interpretation of modern languages and literatures. A thorough
wtd-ly and a full understanding of any modern language, especi-
.al,1. the Romance Languages and our own tongue, demand a
c..uiiderable preliminary acquaintance with Latin and Greek.
Tlitus from two points of view, that of their own intrinsic beauty
iud value as culture studies, and that of subsidiary aids to the
-turiy of other and modern languages, Latin and Greek command
our attention, and call for a large place in any curriculum which
[.rposes to issue in a liberal education.
The following courses are offered for the coming year:
Latin I.-An introductory Course in the Roman Epic.-Several
h-boks of Virgil's /Eneid will be read, and studied with reference
t.-, their poetic and metrical structure,their mythological content,
anul their peculiarities of form, syntax, etc.

both semesters, Senior year, 3 hours.)
(Eleetire for A. B. Stdeits.)
Greek A.-An Elementary Course.-This course is intended
for students who, desiring to take college work in Greek, hav-
not had sufficient preparation to enable them to enter the Fresh
man class. A Beginners' Greek Book will be studied for the-
first semester; and two books of Xenophon's Anabasis will be
read during the second semester. Proper attention will also bt
given to the elements of Greek Grammar, and weekly exercise,
in prose composition will be required during the second semester
(Both semesters, 5 hours.)
Greek IL-An Elementlay Course in the Greek Historians.-
The authors read will be Xenophon, Anabasis or Cyropfedia, and
Herodotus. Two hours per week throughout the year will be


devoted to the class-room study of the original Greek; and the
student will read privately the remaining portions of the Cyro-
paedia, and all of Herodotus.
The study of Greek Grammar will be continued throughout
the year, and especial attention will be paid to the forms and
-yntax of Herodotus. Weekly exercises in prose composition
will also be required. (Both sey esters, Freshman year, 3 hoIurs.)
Greek IIa!-A Course in Plato, With Especial Reference to the
Life of Socrates.-The class work will be devoted to the study
of the Apology, Crito, and Phzedo; and the student will read

ture informally on the outlines of the Homeric question and other
topics connected with Homeric study.
The study of Homer will be followed by the study of the
fragments of Alcteus, Sappho, and other Greek lyrists; and they
will be compared with their Roman imitators, and with modern
lyrists. One or more of the simpler odes of Pindar will also be


read. Questions of dialect and metre will be constantly con-
sidered. (Both semesters, Junior year, 3 ho'rs.)
Greek IV.-A Course in Greek Drama.-Selected plays -:,f
AEschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, and Aristophanes, will be re d.
For next year 'Eschylus' Prometheus, Sophocles' Antigone,
Euripides' Medea, and Aristophanes' Frogs will be offered. The
origin and History of Greek drama will be treated in a serie- f
lectures; and collateral reading will be assigned on connect-d
subjects, such as The Greek Theatre; Roman Imitators of thi
Greek Dramatists; Aristophanes Value as a Historian; etc., tc:.
A reading knowledge of German is highly desirable i-it
students who wish to take this course. (Bot/h semesters, Se;...,
year, 3 hours.)



The work in the Department of Mathematics is planned with
a threefold purpose in view:
I. For students who intend to specialize in Mathematic- it
provides the training necessary for pursuing their work. BL
offering different advanced courses in different years, a compare i-
tively large number of courses is made available. Still it should
be remembered that they give a necessarily one-sided sketch
rather than a complete picture of modern Mathematics.
2..To those who need Mathematics as an instrument it offer-
opportunities to become familiar with this instrument. The apl--li-
cation of the methods of Calculus not only to Physics, Chemistr. :,
Engineering, etc., but even to such seemingly remote realms .,-
Psychology and Political Economy, makes it advisable that thi-
class should continue the study of Mathematics at least as far :i


3. To others it gives logical training in Analysis and Proof,
introduces them to that scientific method par excellence of the
Hypothesis, and introduces the idea of a deductive system in its
classical form. Elementary (Euclidian) Geometry is studied with
this purpose in view by all members of the Freshman class.
The following courses are offered each year:
Mathematics Ia.-Solid Geometry.-(5 hours during the first
.emester of the Freshman year.) Text-book: Phillips and Fisher,
Elements of Geometry.
Mathematics Ib.-Plane and Spherical Trigonomety.--(5
.ours during the second semester of the Freshman year.) Text-book:

Mathematics IIa.-Algebra and Introduction to Infinite Analy-
';s.-(5j ho urs during the first semester of the Sophomore year.) Text-
book: Hall and Knight, College Algebra, supplemented by in-
formal lectures.
Mathematics IIb.-Analytic Geometry.--(5 hours during the
_cond semester of the Sophomore year.) Text-book: Tanner and
Allen, Analytic Geometry.
Mathematics III.-Calcldus 1.-(3 or 6 hours through the Junior
Sear.) Text-books: MacMahon and Snyder, Differential Calculus;
Murray, Integral Calculus. This is mainly a lecture course,
Supplemented by assigned reading and exercises. As it forms the
basis for all advanced work in Mathematics, emphasis is laid on
vigorous treatment of the fundamental principles rather than on
Of the following advanced courses three at least will be offered
each year.

ing Differental Equations. Murray, Differental Equations, will
be used for exercises. (Elective second semester, Senior year, 3
Mathematics V.-2.-The course on Introduction to the
Theory of Functions will aim to give a general theory rather
than a detailed study of various functions. It will treat of num-
bers, infinite series and products, continuation of a function,
conformal representation, with form and periodic functions.
(Elective; both semesters, Senior year, 3 hours.)
Mathematics VI.-9.-The Mathematical Seminary is a
Research course. Subject for the year: Number Systems.

and the Principles of Critique of Cognition applied to them.
(Elective; both semesters, Senior year, 2 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 advanced mathematics
is presupposed. Text-book: Young, Manual of Astronomy.
(Elective; both semesters, Junior or Senior year, 3 hours.)



In this department practice and theory go hand in hand. A
graduate's value is not based on what he knows, but on what he
can do.
The following courses are offered for the coming year:
Mechanics I.-A Course in Kinematics of Afachinery.-In
Kinematics the relation of moving parts of machines is investi-
gated. This includes link work, belts, gears, trains of mechanism,
etc. The text is supplemented by the use of an extensive collec-
tion of models and a thorough course in drawing the various
forms of teeth, etc.
On the completion of Kinematics, Graphic Statics is taken
up. This work is planned with special reference to the require-
ments of engineering students and the development of the general
theory is limited to such principals and methods as are practically
useful. (Required of Engineering students; both semesters, Junior
year, 3 hours.)
Mechanics II.-A Course in Analytic and Applied Mechanics.-
The various forces in statics and dynamics are studied and a wide
range of problems in their practical application to machines is


solved. (Required of Engineering students; both semesters, Seni.t
year, 5 hours.)
Mechanics III.-A Course in strength of Afaterials and Mat:-
rials Used in Engineering Structures.--This will comprise an in-

gineering structures, the analysis of stresses in trusses; bursting
strength of boilers, etc., and the mechanical properties and treat -
ment of iron, steel, timber and cements. (Required of Enginee, -
ing students; both semesters, Senior year, 3 hours.)
Steam Engineering.-This course includes the study of
Thermodynamics and its relation to the gas, gasoline and steam
engine; the losses attendant upon the conversion of heat into wor k
and means of partially preventing same; a study of the different
valve motions; the practical use of the steam engine indicator:
the construction of theoretical cards for compound engines; steam
boilers, etc. (Required of Engineering students; both semester,.
Senior year, 4 hours.)
The course in Drawing requires four years for completion.
Those who enter the sub-freshman class have a preliminary year
of free hand lettering and sketching.
During the Freshman year a text-book, "Tracy's Introduc-
tory Course," is used, and work with the instruments taken u-',.
The essentials of Descriptive Geometry are clearly brought out and
at the same time accuracy and neatness in drawing are required.
During the Sophomore year Machine Drawing is taken up.
In the Junior and Senior years advanced Drawing and
Machine Design occupy the student's attention. Both are made
to harmonize with the theoretical instruction going on at the same
time, and during the Senior year particular stress is laid on Ma-
chine design and a large amount of independent investigation is
required. (Required of Engineering students; 4 hours, counting a,
2, in Freshman and Sophomore, and 8 hours, counting as 4, i,.
Junior and Senior years; both semesters in all classes.)


Shop Work.-A systematic course of practical work, includ-
ing carpentry, wood-turning, pattern making, moulding, foundry
work, blacksmithing, bench work in iron, and machine work, is
required of Mechanical Engineering students. No attempt is made
to teach a trade, in any sense of the word; the time afforded would
not permit of this, but each lesson is intended to bring out some
one of the underlying principles of the subject taught and impress
it firmly on the student's mind, so that when he has completed the
course he will have a general knowledge of those trades with
which the engineer has to deal.
A series of lectures is given as the work progresses, and a
certain amount of reading of technical and trade publications is
Shop Equipment.-The wood shop is provided with twenty
Inches and forty sets of tools for bench work in wood, a rip saw,
band saw, jig saw, planer, grindstone, fourteen wood lathes and
a number of small foot-power machines. The foundry is equipped
with sets of moulding tools, benches, flasks, moulding sand, etc.
A brass furnace is in place, and a cupola for melting iron has
recently been installed. The tin shop is provided with gas furnaces
and soldering irons for students, and is well supplied with snips,
-takes, flangers, and blowpipes. The blacksmith shop contains
power blast forges, and one hand forge, heavy anvils, sledges,
hammers, tongs, fullers, swages, etc. The machine shop has an
I 8-inch Cady and an i i-inch Seneca Falls lathe, a drill press, emery
wheel, grindstone, and a Gray planer. ANo. I B. & S. Universal

Instruction in Physics is given by (i) recitations, based upon
lessons assigned in text-books; (2) laboratory work, in which the
student uses his own direct observation to gain knowledge of the
subject; (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 clas-
take up different special problems requiring extended study or
investigation, and report upon them in turn to the class.
Physics I.-This is a course in general physics, consisting of
lectures, demonstrations, and recitations. The student is required
to take notes, which must be re-written, and passed in for inspec-
tion at the end of every month.
The subject will be taken up in the following order:
Elementary Trigonometric Conceptions.-Functions of angles.
calculations of right-triangles, use of logarithmic and trigono-
metric tables.


Mechanics.-Physical quantities and their measurement,
simple types of motion; work and energy, mechanics of a rigid

traction, elementary theory of optical instruments, interference,
dispersion, maximum efficiency of optical instruments, optical
phenomena of the atmosphere, radiation and absorption of light
waves, sensation of color, polarization.
General Physics, by Hastings and Beach, is used as a refer-
ence text. Each student is required to provide himself with loga-
rithmic and trigonometric tables.
This course presupposes a thorough working knowledge of
.ilgebra. (Required of all students; both semesters, Freshman year,
Physics II.-This is a laboratory course. The work is as far
as possible df a quantitative nature. Great stress is placed on
exact measurements and on care in recording results. The stu-
dent is required to record his observations in a temporary note-
book; these observations, with calculations and deductions, are
written up on perforated sheets which are passed in at the end
,:f each week; these are bound between covers and form the
permanent note-book.


Among the experiments given are coefficient of friction, prin-
ciples of moments, laws of falling bodies, specific density of solid
and liquids, laws of the pendulum, velocity of sound, determina-
tion of pitch by sonometer, specific heat, latent heat, coefficient of
expansion, index of refraction, focal length of lenses, measure-
ment of resistance, current and potential, magnetic moment, tan-
gent galvanometer, etc. (Required of B. S. students; both semesters,
Freshman year, 2 hours.)
Physics III.-M-echanics and Acoustics.-The work in mechan-
ics in this course is designed to cover those parts of the subject
which are of purely scientific rather than of practical interest,
and thus includes a different field from the course in applied me-
chanics. Such subjects are taken up as the general properties of
matter, kinetic theory of matter, viscosity, capillarity, theory of
vibrations. Lectures; recitations, laboratory work. (Required of
Engineering students; elective other courses; both semesters, Junior
year, 3 hours.)
Physics IV.-Advanced Courses in Physics.-All of the ad-
vanced courses in physics presuppose the completion of the course
in general physics, and all except the advanced experimental
physics require a knowledge of calculus. (All are arranged tc
extend through two semesters, and to require three hours per week
of class room work, or six hours of laboratory work. These courses
are junior or Senior electives, and one or more will be offered each
Advanced Experimental Physics.-Continuation of the labo-
ratory work of the course in general physics, including further
instruction in the use of physical instruments, practice in labora-
tory manipulation, design of apparatus, and the performance of
experiments not provided for in the first year course. (Laboratory
work only.)
General Mathematical Physics.-Mathematical theories of
the various branches of physics; differential equations of mathe-
matical physics; use of Fourier's series. (Lectures, recitations,
seminar work.)

erties of gases and vapors; hygrometry; measurement of high and
low temperatures; theory of thermodynamics. (Lectures, recita-
tions, laboratory.)
Optics.-Experimental work in dispersion, diffraction, inter-
ference, polarization; crystal optics, magneto-optics; design of
optical instruments. (Lectures, recitations, laboratory.)
Electricity and Magnetism.-This course is intended to in-
clude primarily those parts of the subject which are of purely sci-
entific interest; the applications of electricity being covered in the
courses in electrical engineering. It includes work in static elec-
tricity; primary cells and electro-chemistry; conduction of elec-
tricity in gases; Rontgen rays; electric vibrations; general mathe-
matical theory of electricity and magnetism.



The Romance courses are based upon the belief that a good
reading knowledge of the languages for practical and cultural
purposes is the main desideratum for the majority of students
and that it is practically impossible for one to become a fluent
linguist except through a more constant and continuous contact
with the spoken language than is possible in an ordinary college
course. The intention is, therefore, to make these studies serve
a threefold puirpose-to give the student the power to read the
written language with ease and rapidity, to broaden his mind by
stores of information and culture from other languages than his
own, and to train his intellect by means of the mental discipline
afforded in such studies. To those, however, who desire to
acquire familiarity with the spoken languages, electives for this
purpose are offered.


French A.-Elementary Course.-Convinced that neither by
induction nor by deduction alone is a language most easily learned,
we have made the first year's course in French a combination of
the two methods, beginning the translation of an easy text almost
simultaneously with the study of the grammar. In this way the
student sees in his every day contact with the language a verifica-
tion of the principles he learns from the grammar. French A.
therefore, not only familiarizes the student with the essentials of
grammar, but imparts a certain facility in translating English
into French and acquaints him with several French production-
of literary merit. The following texts are read in class: Halevy'
"L'Abbe Constantin," Chateubriand's "Les Aventures du
Dernier Abencerage" and Dumas' Monte-Cristo." (For stu-
dezts unprepared for French both semesters, 5 hours.)
French I.-Such review of the verb as is seen to be necessary
is directed to be taken outside of the class. The pronunciation
is perfected by reading the French in the original before trans-
lating. The course embraces the following works: Erckmann-
Chatrian's "Le Conscrit de 1813," Feuillet's "Le Roman d'un
June Homme Pauvre," Dumas' "Le Chateau d' If," Hugo's
"Hernani," Canfield's "French Lyrics" consisting of 230 poems
by 60 poets. (Alternate elective with German I for B. S. students
and with Greek I for A. B. students,- both semesters, Freshman
year, 3 hours.)
French II.-This course is open only to those who have sat-
isfactorily completed I. Students entering French II are sup-
posed to read with ease any ordinary French text. Its aim,
therefore, while seeking to impart greater facility in reading the
more difficult authors, is to afford opportunity for studying the
language as a literature in its various and distinct forms. Lectures
are given on the origin and development of the French drama.
(Alternate elective with German 1 for B. S. students, and with
Greek I for A. B. students both semesters, Sophomore year, 3


French III.-Old French.-Just as the study of Anglo-Saxon
is necessary to a thorough mastery of the English tongue, so
Old French is essential to a full understanding of the modern
language. The French of the Middle Ages is the bridge over
which the Latin element in modern French has come. While
it is not essential for ordinary reading purposes, it is indispensable
to a liberal understanding of the language in its historical de-
velopment. Besides translating many authors of the eleventh,
twelfth, and thirteenth centuries, lectures are given showing the
changes that words in modern French have undergone. Course
III is expected to follow II. (Elective; both semesters, Junior or
Senior year, 3 hours.)
Spanish.-On account of our proximity to Cuba and other
Latin-American countries, it has been deemed wise to offer a year's
work in Spanish. A thorough drill in the pronunciation and
grammar with exercises in turning Spanish into English and
English into Spanish is followed by the translation of an easy
text. These texts are gradually increased in difficulty and length,
and the student is expected to read ordinary Spanish with ease
by the end of the course. Especial stress is laid upon the ac-
cumulation of a large vocabulary, and. upon sight reading. (Elect-
.ve; both semesters, Junior or Senior year, 3 hours.)
Italian.-To students desiring to specialize in the Romance
Languages, an elementary course in Italian is offered. As students
who elect this course will already have had some knowledge of
Latin and French, Bowen's Italian Reader and Grandgent's
Italian Grammar are begun simultaneously and a rapid mastery
of the forms- and ability to translate easy passages of prose is
acquired in the first semester. In the second, annotated texts
ire first read and then II Romanzo d' un Maestro by De Amicis
in an Italian edition. Prose composition and private reading are
also given. (Elective; both semesters, Junior or Senior year, 3 hours.)




The work in this subject consists of recitations, lectures, and
laboratory exercises in physiology, materia-medica, bacteriology,
and clinics upon the diseases of animals.
Intending medical, veterinary, dental and pharmacy students
will find the course a great aid in pursuing a more comprehensive
study of the above subjects later, it being practically a prelimi-
nary medical course.
Physiology.-This course consists of recitations and practice
laboratory work in studying the microscopic structure of the
tissues, in demonstrating the conductivity of nerve and contract-
ility of muscle, special stress being laid upon respiration, digestion
and absorption, circulation of the blood, and the nervous system.

first semester, 3 hours.)
Material Medica.-Owing to time limitations only the most
important drugs can be studied.
The department's pharmacy is stocked with a11 the drugs in
common use, and these with a few more uncommon preparation-
are exhibited to practically familiarize the student with their
physical characters. (Elective in Chemical course; second semester.
Senior year, 3 hours.)
Bacteriology I and II.-These courses consist almost entirely
of practical work in the bacteriological laboratory, which is well
equipped. The student is taught to prepare culture media, the
actual setting and regulation of thermostats, the use of the bac-
teriological microscope in measuring, observing mobility, sporula-
tion, staining, mounting, etc.


Students are required to cultivate and diagnose certain typical
forms, not only by means of their cultural characters but by a
t udy of their pathogenesis and their subsequent isolation from
the bodies of animals. (I elective in Science courses, Sopfhomore year;
..,uired in Agricultural courses, Senior year; second semester, 3
'*':rs. II required in Natural History and Chemical courses; first
'. ,ester, 5 hours.)
Veterinary Diseases I and II.-These courses consist of clinics
up on cases occurring in the practice of the department, the object
being to familiarize the student with the symptoms exhibited by
sick animals and the proper remedies for the condition. The de-
partment is well equipped with all the latest improved instru-
iments, and the mechanism and use of these are fully explained.
St dents are required to act as assistants in all procedures. (Re-
.'red in Agricultural courses; I second semester, Junior year, 5

lows course I in zoology. Careful attention is given to the struc-
ture of insects in general, after which the insect orders are con-
-idered, the student being expected to recognize the various orders
3nd the more common families. Emphasis is given to the economic
side of entomology and particularly to the injurious insects of
Florida and their remedies. (Elective to Sophomores of the Natural


History, Chemical and Mathematical courses; required of Sopho.

in Zoology, Entomology, or Geology, will be assigned special prob-
lems, or allowed to select particular lines of investigation in one
of these subjects. (Required of Seniors, Natural History course,
who select one of these subjects as major; both semesters, Senior year.)


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 min-
eralogy there is provided a blowpipe collection of one hundred
-elected mineral species; an accessory blowpipe collection of
miscellaneous minerals; a crystal collection of fifty natural crys-
tals; and a reference collection of choice mineral specimens. His-
torical Geology students are provided with a collection of fossils
illustrating the distribution and development of organisms. Op-
portunity is offered for research along certain lines. The State is
exceptionally rich in entomological and zoological problems.
Field work in geology will be arranged whenever possible. The
department library, office, and room for use of advanced students
adjoins the laboratory.
fMuseum.-The University museum occupies the third floor
of Science Hall. The mineralogy collections are at the south end,
and consist of a representative collection of minerals with some
choice specimens. The geological collections are arranged accord-
nlg to biological groups. Within the group the arrangement is
according to geological occurrence. The zoological material is
grouped at the north end of the museum.



The law establishing the land grant institutions provides
that instruction in military science and tactics shall be a part of
the course of studies maintained. By this wise provision the
nation will always be supplied with intelligent and educated
officers, should any unhappy differences with other nations make
it necessary to call out the militia in large numbers.


Not only does this legal obligation exist, but it has been
shown by experience that military drill promotes physical
development, and that it leads to promptness in the discharge of
all duties.
It teaches young men how to command others, a quality
necessary to success in every pursuit in life.
'/ All able-bodied students, except senior privates and normal
students, are required to take the military instruction and the
drill. Hereafter, proficiency in military science will be requisite
for promotion from one class to the next higher, and is made a
condition for graduation.
Those excused from military drill on account of physical
disability, or for other causes, will be required to utilize the time
for other work to be assigned them at the discretion of the Presi-
dent upon the recommendation of the Commandant of Cadets.
As far as possible and consistent with the best interests of
discipline and the good of the institution, commissioned officer-.
will be selected from the Senior and Junior classes, and non-
commissioned officers from the Sophomore and Freshman classes.
The department is supplied by the Government with 150
cadet rifles and equipment, and a sufficient allowance of am-
munition for thorough instruction in the course which is given
By the generosity of the citizens of Lake City, a silver cup
has been provided, which is to remain in the possession of the
best drilled company, as determined by the competitive drill
during commencement week.
A gold medal is given by the Commandant for individual
competitive drill and two medals for'the highest averages during
target practice.
The military department is a separate department and
students are under military discipline only during the perform-
ance of purely military duties.


Breaches of military discipline are punished by confinement
in study hall during recreation hours, confinement to rooms when
not attending university duties, confinement to the campus, and
in serious cases by demerits and extra tours. Students during
confinement who apply themselves do a great deal of studying
they would not do if permitted to visit the city or loaf around the
Students must provide themselves with the regulation uni-
form. The expense will not exceed $15 for privates. The
uniform is durable and neat, and will be found as economical as
any clothing that can be provided. If care is taken one suit will
be ample for the year, as they are only required to be worn when
attendingg military duty.
The military duties generally will not occupy more than three
hours per week, and are so arranged as to facilitate the advance-
mnent of the students in other studies and not interfere with any
class room work. The time consumed in drill for the year 1905-6,
and thereafter until further notice, will be two hours per week,
distributed as follows:
Tuesday, 7:20 A. M., regular drill.........30 minutes.
Wednesday, 7:20 A. M., guard mounting..30 minutes.
Thursday, 7:20 A. M. regular drill........30 minutes.
Friday, 4:15 P. M., dress parade.............30 minutes.
There will be no military exercises on Monday or on Friday
Instruction.-The course of military instruction is as follows:
First Semester.-Theoretical and practical instruction in the
school of the soldier and of the company in close and extended
order; company and battalion inspection; dress parades; reviews;
guard mounting and posting of sentinels; escort of the colors.
Second Semester.-Theoretical and practical instruction in the
school of the battalion, artillery drill, and battalion ceremonies.
Sighting and position aiming drills, and target practice at
the different ranges, Ioo, 200 and 300 yards. Each Cadet will


be required to fire not less than the regular number (50) of -hot'
under the direction of an officer or non-commissioned officer of
his company.
The study of the Articles of War and the preparation of
certain records which shows how the soldier enters and leav-: the
service, how he is accounted for, paid, fed, clothed, and armed,
and how his military duties are regulated.
The members of the Freshman Class will be required to study
and recite upon the Drill Regulations during the second sen.r ...:,
Officers and non-commissioned officers will be required to
perfect themselves in the Drill Regulations.
Lectures will be given by the Commandant from time tc t mie
on military subjects having reference to such matters as tle
organization of the United States Army including volunteers
and militia; patrols and out-posts; marches; camp and camp
hygiene; attack and defence of advance and rear guards and out-
posts, and convoys; lines and bases of operations.
Any students who desire may take a course in military sub-
jects such as Ordnance and Gunnery, International Law, Mili-
tary Science, Military Law, and Field Engineering.
Vacancies in the grade of second lieutenant in the army ex-
isting on July I in each year, after that year's graduates of the
military academy have been commissioned, may be filled by ap-
pointment, in the following order: (i) of enlisted men of the
Army, whose fitness for advancement shall have been determined
by competitive examination; (2) from civil life.
This provision makes it possible for anyone under 30 years
of age, unmarried, physically sound, and of good moral character.
to enlist in the Army, and after two years' service take a com-
petitive examination for appointment as 2nd Lieutenant.




The Flagler gymnasium affords splendid opportunities for
physical development. The equipment is of the best and latest
design and consists of vaulting horse, buck, horizontal and
parallel bars, rowing machines, vaulting bar, chest machines,
sculling, wrist, and finger machines, traveling rings, flying rings,
Indian clubs, dumb bells, etc., also a goodly number of well
added mats.
The main floor is 4ox80 feet with a suspended running track
which is also used as a spectators' gallery. In the basement are
t he dressing rooms, lockers, lavatories, shower baths, boiler-room,
3nd a large swimming pool.
The gymnasium work is planned by the instructor. The
work is based upon the idea that all-around development is pref-
riable to the development of any particular set of muscles.
Physical defects will be corrected by special individual exercises
as far as possible. Measurements will be taken of students at
the beginning of each school year and work prescribed. At the
end of the year they will be remeasured and results noted.
In addition to the gymnasium work such sports as football,
baseball, basketball, tennis, track and field athletics are en-
couraged on the ground that manly competition in pure athletics
tends in a great degree to elevate the standard of morality and
;elf-respect among the student body. A committee of the faculty
co-operate with the students in this work.
The gymnasium work will be required of all students below
lte Junior class unless excused by the President.

The University proposes to offer a two years' course in
Pharmacy, beginning in the Fall of 1906, which shall lead to the
degree of Ph. G. Candidates for admission to this course will be
required to pass a satisfactory examination in General Chemist ry,
Latin, and the ordinary English branches, viz.: Arithmetic to
and including compound and decimal fractions and proportion,
American history, geography (general), reading, writing and
spelling. A High School diploma or one of equal standing will
be accepted in place of the above examinations on all subjects
except Chemistry. Students of the University of Florida w.'ho
graduate in an elective course of Chemistry will be admitted,
without further examination, to the Senior year of the school.
The course of instruction will include the subjects of gen-
eral, pharmaceutical, analytical and organic chemistry, toxi-
cology, pharmaceutical physics, material medical, botany, micro-
scopy and the theory and practice of pharmacy, with laboratory
work in each department.
Every person upon whom the degree of Ph. G. of this school
shall be conferred, must be of good moral character, must hai'-
attained the age of 21 years, must have had at least two year'
experience in a dispensing store (not necessarily continuous and

Upon the abolishment of the State Normal School at D.--
Funiak Springs by the Buckman Law, provision was made f.-ir
the training of male teachers by the establishment of a Normal
Department at the University of Florida and similarly for fenale
teachers at the Florida Female College.
This division of Normal work enables this Department *fI
the University to devote itself to the training and instruction .:f
those men who may reasonably be expected to fill the important
public school positions of the State. From this Department the
majority of future county superintendents, graded school prini-
pals, and high school teachers and principals may well be dra,. n.
The demand for young men for such positions is far bey:'ndl
the supply and is increasing constantly. Salaries are rapidly
advancing and with the increasing taxable property in the State
and the liberal aid now given to all grades of schools by the State
Government, this field of work is becoming profitable. In res-,ect
to its nobility, usefulness, honor, and social and intellectual standl-
ing the profession of teaching may already be said to be secoi.n
to none. Young men of ability, good character, pure lives and
unselfish ambitions may turn to this work as offering splendid
opportunities for successful careers.
The improvement of rural life is one of the most interim:-
living problems of the South. The country school is looked to
as the means and center of this improvement. Young men :4"
rural interests and inclinations or whose opportunities have iinot
permitted their preparing for more remunerative work, will tin.i
that they can make no investment which will return greater
pleasure and profit to themselves or put them in a better positi.,n


to be useful, distinguished and honored among their fellow
citizens than in a Normal course preparing them for conducting
model rural schools.
The Normal Department will seek to prepare specially
trained teachers for every grade of public school work for which
men are naturally adapted. Through these young men and other-
Sise it will undertake practical, original studies of the conditions
and needs of popular education in this State. By the most
thorough and effective preparation of its students it will aim to
be a strong factor in advancing the dignity and compensation of
tile teaching profession, and to contribute appreciably to the bet-
terment of social and economic conditions in the State.
Throughout all the courses offered in this Department it will
re the aim of each instructor to make clear the function of his
subject in a school curriculum. A teacher should not be permitted
t,-. regard the teaching of any subject as an end in itself, but its
real relations to the pupil's life activities and its vital correlations
\- ith other studies are of prime importance in preparing him to
tcach it effectively.
Owing to the entrance requirements both as to scholarship
and as to age the work of the Normal Department will be consid-
erably higher than that of regular Senior High Schools. The
Three-Year Normal Course will, with slight exceptions, be the
equal in academic advancement of a high-school course, and will
in.'lude a good professional course in addition thereto. More
time is perfecting the knowledge of common school sub-
jects, the aim being to offer the less essential subjects as electives
to: be taken in the University classes. The greater maturity of the
a\ rage Normal student and his usually more studious disposition
make it feasible to shorten some courses while making them
eti.n more thorough than would be possible in a high-school were
the facilities and corps of instructors fully equal.


Students desiring to fit themselves for entrance into the
University and not expecting to teach, may secure special per-
mission to substitute additional academic work for most of the
professional studies of the first two years of the Normal Colurc-.

The division of Normal School work renders practicable
certain economies in the courses offered to prospective teachers.
The Kindergarten and Primary Teachers' Training Classes are
naturally left entirely to the Normal Department of the Female
College, while the superior facilities offered by the University
render unnecessary as extensive courses in the languages, sciences
and some other subjects as were given at the State Normal.
THREE-YEAR NORMAL COURSE.-With the elimination of col-
legiate and primary professional work a three-year course has
been provided, which is equal in character to that offered by
almost any Normal School in the country, North, South, East or
West. Satisfactory graduates of this course will be well fitted
i.or teaching in any of the grammar or Junior High School grades
and for rural school teaching.
special professional study and training is offered to graduates of
-colleges, high schools or our Three-Year Normal Course. This
course will prepare for any grade of high school teaching. The
course is entirely elective, under direction of the Dean of the De-
partment, in order to provide for the needs of individuals as de-
termined both by their previous preparation and by the class of
teaching which they propose to undertake. Prospective principals
and superintendents will be expected to specialize largely along
the lines of schooll laws, organization, management, etc.; those
% ho expect rather to be high school teachers may specialize in
particular branches, as ancient languages, modern languages,
sciences or history, in connection with appropriate pedagogical
subjects while high-school graduates who have had neither
Normal nor collegiate instruction will devote themselves primarily
t-': the professional work of the Three-Year Normal Course.


jority of rural schools are and for many years will continue to te
taught by second and third grade teachers, it is thought that the
Normal instruction offered by the State should not be dc-nied t,-
these. Since well educated teachers cannot be secured for a 1Irze
proportion of the schools, it is far better that those who d'-, tech
them should have some special training than have none. To: meet
this need a Common School Teachers' Course is organized which
will review the common school subjects from the teacher'c rtarid-
point and afford as much as possible, in the way of theo:-r,c and
practice of education, observation of model methods and ini-si.Jt
into the true meaning and spirit of elementary education The
aim of this course is to improve the rural school conditi.n-, to
bring these schools into vital touch with their environment, to:
let them enter helpfully into the real problems of rural life, and
to make the teacher and school a center of interest and a t al
force in community betterment.

Throughout the Normal Course instruction is given in the
an.ri.LLs sciences of education and their practical application. It
i-s -unied to bring the students, as early as practicable, abreast of
thli times in both educational theory and practice. A Normal
Schll._.l should, moreover, be "an educational experiment station."
-Heince a broad basis of the philosophy of teaching and study of
:i-tirng conditions are made, in order to afford that power and
.,rizrinality which will make our students not merely imitators in
tlh.luht and practice.
ARTr or TEACHING.-In the first year a foundation is laid in
a careful study of the essential principles of the art of teaching.
Thli central aim of this class is to bring the students to appreciate
thl.r..iughly that all real learning consists in the activity of the
-''l.[;I. and, hence, real teaching consists in causing appropriate
ac-.vities on the part of the pupils. After a reasonable mastery
:of tlih fundamental principles has been secured, the class studies
thei-ir practical application in methods of teaching the several com-
iu:ll-A school subjects, and so much of the elements of school
lanara cement as is necessary to make clear the principles involved,
arld to inspire students with a due appreciation of and love for
thie rlendid work in which they are engaging.
SCHOOL MANAGEMENT is studied during the first term of the
tlhirt year. The aim of this course is to familiarize students with
thl beest methods and devices for the management of schools, and


to imbue them thoroughly with the ideals and spirit which v, ll
make their management of the schools under their charge con-
tribute most largely to the development of character in their pu-
pils. The care of grounds and buildings, the beautifying of
rooms and premises, heating, lighting, ventilation, principles and
methods of discipline, punishments, rewards, and all those nmarn
and vital questions that arise in the teacher's work-aside from
those directly appertaining to instruction-are studied in a practi-
cal, vital way as thoroughly as the time will permit.
The central thought of this course is that the school is man-
aged with the development of the pupil's character as the highe-t
SCHOOL ORGANIZATION.-In the study of school organiza-
tion which follows the preceding, the larger phases of sch'::ool
management are studied. The arrangement of courses, pr,:pa-
ration of programmes, gradations, promotions, records, r.e-
ports, the supervision and direction of school work and admin-
istration, and all those problems which are met by princlpal-
of small and large schools are studied.
SCHOOL LAWS AND SYSTIMS.-It is the aim of this courseI to
make our students familiar with the working of the school systecn
of which they are to become a part, the laws of the State
bearing upon public education, the duties and functions of the
teachers and each officer, the rights and obligations of patro:.lis
patrons and pupils, the laws pertaining to taxation and control.
and the principles underlying the same, with the practical o:,.,:ra-
tion of these laws and principles. The Florida school system is
compared with that of other States, and its strong and weak point. _
dwelt upon. Students are led to suggest remedies for exi-ting
evils and extension of present benefits.
It has been well said that "the greatest need of the South ii
educational statesmen." The Normal Department can in no wa,,
better repay the State for its maintenance than in the preparation


.mf -.:nme of her strongest young men with the truest ideals in
educationo, and such thoroughly developed knowledge of the best
an.: basic principles that they may become "educational states-



Model lessons are conducted to illustrate the most approved
metlho-ds of teaching and the practical application of the class
\.:.r: in pedagogy. The classes accompanied by the instructor
i:-.her. e this work carefully, making ample notes the while. After
eachl .-ibservation lesson it is fully discussed by the class. The
purpo-e and effect of each detail is brought out, and all is thor-
o:uughll, correlated with the classroom study. After full dis-
cll:t:ion the students are required to write their observations and
c::Onclusions in permanent note-books which are criticized and
graded by the instructor.
The language of educational theory has but little meaning
ito o'nc who cannot translate it into terms of child life. One who
ha- -.tdied educational problems only in their theoretic abstrac-
ti...n- minds, in the actual processes of teaching, problems which
are r ew to him and which are well-nigh insuperable until he has
found the connection between real teaching and the written ac-
c'Iuntrt of it. Practice teaching is the essential means by which
the theories of educational study in the class room are plumbed.
lany a.teacher has no professional mirror in which he can
see himself as he appears to others. He grows in his errors or
pecuhririties until he wonders why he is rejected by Boards and
Superintendents. He finds himself a failure with no knowledge
.:f the reason. The practice work will disclose these tendencies
tl tdhe trained eye of the critic. They will be frankly and freely
