Students taking courses in analytical chemistry are required to pay
a special tuition fee of $40 for each course. Each student is required also
to pay a laboratory fee of $10, and to make a deposit of $10 for one course,
or $15 for two courses, to cover the cost of apparatus.

The regular work of this School, constituting a complete course in
practical chemistry, is divided into three courses, as follows:

For Undergraduates and Graduates.

Analytical Chemistry C1: Quantitative Analysis: Analytical Chemistry
B1 prerequisite.
—Training in manipulation and gravimetric estimations, followed

by volumetric estimations and a full course in quantitative analysis
of minerals, ores, coal, soil, iron and steel, technical products, and so on.
Weekly written exercises are required, and twelve hours or more of laboratory
work per week. As the student advances in the course he is encouraged
to undertake original research and assist in its prosecution. Monday,
Wednesday, Friday, 10-11. Chemical Laboratory. Professor Dunnington, Mr
E. P. Brown.

Industrial Chemistry C1: Chemistry B1 or Analytical Chemistry B1, prerequisite.—A
study is made of the chemical principles and processes of the more
important manufacturing industries. Among the subjects discussed are
the metallurgy and uses of the principal metals and alloys, the manufacture
of acids, alkalies, salts, explosives, glass, pottery, brick, lime, cement, paper,
soap, disinfectants and fertilizers; the preparation and preservation of food,
including bread, meat, sugar, etc.; dyeing and tanning, heating and artificial
lights. There is a daily quiz and weekly written exercises are required.
Text-book: Allen Rogers' Elements of Industrial Chemistry.—Hours by
appointment. Chemical Laboratory. Professor Dunnington.

Students who accomplish the work of Analytical Chemistry B1 and C1
and Industrial Chemistry C1, together with Chemistry B1, B2, and C1, are
prepared for entering upon work in the several lines of industry.

For Graduates.

Analytical Chemistry D1: Analytical Chemistry C1, Industrial Chemistry
C1, and Chemistry B1, B2, and C1 prerequisite.
—The work is adapted to the
special aims or tastes of each student, but will, in all cases, comprise some
practice in the more elaborate processes of analysis, ultimate and proximate
organic analysis, some study in analytical methods, and some original problems;
also the reading and the summarizing of extracts from current journals.
Laboratory work will be conducted daily, and suggestions and due
assistance given.—Hours by appointment. Professor Dunnington.

The Chemical Building now under erection will be ready for occupancy
in the session of 1917-1918. It is of brick, fire-proof construction, and the
three floors afford 30,000 square feet of space. The five larger laboratories
will accommodate, at one time, 250 students, and, in addition to these, there are
also smaller laboratories for the use of instructors and advanced students.
The larger lecture room will seat 200. There are also rooms for assay furnaces,
balances, gas and water analysis, and photography, and large stock rooms for
chemicals and apparatus. The building is supplied throughout with water, gas
and electricity. An extensive collection of chemicals, ores and manufactured
products compose a chemical museum of peculiar value and interest. A commodious
working library will be available for the students, containing about
5,000 books directly related to chemistry.
