Graduate, undergraduate, and special students are admitted to the University. Advanced and graduate students are received with or without reference to their being candidates for a degree, and they are permitted to attend such lectures and exercises as they may individually select. They are not examined for admission to the University, but each instructor satisfies himself of the attainments of all who wish to follow his guidance before admitting them to his classes. Undergraduate students of the following classes are received —(a) those who having passed a full matriculation examination are candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Arts, and who, on completing a definite amount of work in lines varying according to the needs or preferences of the student, are advanced to that degree;-(b) those who come with the intention of proceeding to the B. A. degree, but are from various causes unable at once to pass the examination for matriculation, and are admitted as candidates for it, if they show that their acquirements are such that they may reasonably be expected to complete the work in a moderate time; (c) special students who do not aim at a university degree but desire only to prosecute one or more branches of study with the full advantages which the University affords to persons who are able to profit by them. The next term will begin Tuesday, September 23, 1884, on which day the examinations for matriculation begin. The first week is devoted to the examination of candidates for admission and matriculation, and to the organization of classes. Instructions will be resumed Tuesday, September 30, 1884. The term of instruction closes on Friday, June 12, 1885. There will be a brief recess at the Christmas holidays and also in the early Spring. For further information, during the summer vacation, letters should be addressed to the "Johns Hopkins University," Baltimore, Md., and not to the individual Professors, who are likely to be absent from the city. The exercises of this Seminary will consist of original work by the students, under the guidance of the Director, on a prescribed subject. After a few preparatory lectures the problem will be given to the class, and thereafter the students will be expected to make weekly reports of progress, which will be discussed, and from time to time new lines of research will be suggested. The subject for investigation in the first half of the ensuing year will be selected from the Theory of Numbers or Modern Geometry, and in the second half of the year from the Higher Algebra or Quaternions.

During the first two or three meetings of the Seminary the Director will occupy the hour, and after that time the students will read dissertations on subjects selected for them by the Director. The work assigned will be divided into three parts: solution of problems, the historical investigation of the above mentioned subjects, and reports on current mathematical journals. DR. FRANKLIN : Problems in Mechanics. Twice weekly, through the year. Historical Lectures on Mathematical Topics by the Instructors, Fellows, and some of the Graduate Students.

An introductory lecture will be given on Wednesday, October 1. The other lectures will follow on consecutive days. Professors and students of physics from other institutions are invited to attend and arrangements will be made by which they may easily obtain temporary lodgings, provided an early intimation is received of their inten tion to come. A registration fee of $5 will be required from such persons as follow the course, unless they are in other ways connected with this university. III. Annual Course of Instruction for Undergraduates in General Physics. This course will embrace experimental lectures, recitations, and examinations, five times a week throughout the year, with one half-day each week given to laboratory work. The subjects taken up will include Mechanics, Acoustics, Optics, Light, Heat, Electricity, and Magnetism. This course should precede the study of Chemistry and Biology. A knowledge of Plane Trigonometry is essential for admission to it. IV. Laboratory Work. The Physical Laboratory is furnished with apparatus pur chased from the best European and American makers, selected with special reference to investigations, and especially valuable for researches in electricity, magnetism, light, and heat. The laboratory will be open for work, daily through the year. NOTE.-Candidates for the degree of Ph. D., who take Physics as a principal subject will be expected to attend Professor Rowland's lectures for at least two years; to work not less than two years in the laboratory or to show such attainments in the mathematical theories of Physics as may be regarded as an equivalent; to exhibit a familiarity with a selected group of subjects, such as are treated by the following authors: History: Poggendorff, Grant (History of Physical Astronomy); Mechanics: Kirchhoff, Thomson & Tait, Poisson, Duhamel, Jacobi, Peirce, Resal, Routh, Newton, and (on special topics) Riemann, Beer, and Lamé; Sound: Rayleigh, Helmholtz; Optics: Fresnel (special memoirs), Billet, Verdet, Gauss (Dioptrische Untersuchungen), Young, Helmholtz (Physiologische Optik); Heat: Clausius, Rankine, Verdet, Rühlmann, Briot, Fourier; Electricity and Magnetism: Maxwell (complete treatise), Faraday, Wiedemann, Mascart, De la Rive, Thomson (papers on Electricity and Magnetism). Such candidates will also be required to present a thesis upon some subject in that branch of Physics upon which they have been especially engaged. WORK OF THE PAST YEAR, 1883-84.
