plan he will accept.



COLLEGE OF PHARMACY 25

All students registered in the first year class must, in order to complete their
matriculation, make the first payment of their fees on or before September 8,
1926, instead of September 13, as noted below. Fees are not returnable under
any circumstances.

A. Pay in full on or before September 13, 1926.

B. Pay one-half of the fee on or before September 13, 1926, and half on or
before January 4, 1927; in this case, I3 will be added to the first payment.

C. Pay a third of the fee on or before September 13, 1926, a third on or before
December i, 1926, and a third on or before February 14, 1927; in this case $5
will be added to the first payment.

A student accepting plan B or C will, on failure to meet a payment, be liable
to be debarred, from that date, from attendance.

The fees for the Summer Preparatory and Evening Courses are payable in
advance.

All students, both regular and special, must pay their fees at the office of the
College.

It is estimated that an expenditure of $50 will cover the cost of the text-books
and necessary apparatus required for the full two-year course.

REGULATIONS OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES

The rules and regulations stated in this Announcement and those posted on
the Bulletin Boards, signed by the Chairman of an authorized committee, or by
the Dean, will govigrp. all students of this College until a new Announcement is
issued. ^ *

* vllh AUTHORITY OF THE DEAN

The Dean is the executive officer of the Faculty. It is his duty, under the
direction of the President, to enforce the rules of the Faculty and of the Board
of Trustees and to administer discipline in the case of their violation.

REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL REGULAR STUDENTS

Attendance

Students are particularly requested to be in attendance at the commence-
ment of the course, in order to obtain full benefit from the lectures. No student
will be admitted more than two weeks after the opening of the term, and no
member of the third and fourth year classes will be admitted later than one week
after the opening, except by special permission of the Faculty.

Every student must attend during ninety per cent of the hours of instruction
in each year, and during eighty per cent of those of each exercise. For being late
twice at daily opening the student will he charged with one absence. For failure to
comply with this condition, the student will forfeit the privilege of presenting himself
for examination.

Advancement in Classes

Advancement from one class to the next requires that the student successfully
pass an examination in all the subjects taught during the preceding year, the



26 COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY *

passing mark being 75 per cent, although the Faculty may admit a student to the
next class conditioned in a single subject. It is to be particularly noted that in
deciding upon the qualifications of candidates, their term's work and their char-
acter as students will be given due consideration.

Those students who fail to pass these examinations — but not those who have
failed, without excuse, to present themselves thereat — will be allowed to undergo
a single supplementary examination to be held as announced on page 72, pro-
vided, however, that they did not fail in a majority of their subjects. Students
failing in a majority of their subjects will be required to repeat their entire course,
provided however, that such students may be refused re-matriculation if, in the
judgment of the faculty, they are not qualified to be students of this College.
A student who fails in a laboratory course must repeat such course successfully
before being advanced to the higher class. This work must be done during the
summer except in special cases.

As an aid to those students who are required to take a supplementary exami-
nation, summer quiz courses are held as per schedule on page 41 . By a regulation
of the State Education Department, students failing in more than one subject
must make good the deficiency at the school where they so failed. Applicants
for the supplementary examination must notify the Registrar on or before
September i, 1926.

Candidates for admission to advanced standing must either pass examinations
in all the subjects of the preceding year or must produce evidence of having
passed successfully examinations equal thereto.

REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION

Every person upon whom a degree is conferred by the College or the Univer-
sity must be of good moral character, and must have complied with all require-
ments for graduation.

Those who fail to appear for examination (after having handed in their names
with the examination fee), or who do not pass satisfactorily, will be allowed to
present themselves at the following spring examination on paying an additional
fee of $10 and complying with all other requirements.

Such students may, if they prefer, be re-examined at any supplementary exam-
ination in September on payment of a fee of $5.00 for each and every subject in
which examined.

The fees for a third spring examination shall correspond with those stated
above for the second examination.

Any student who shall have failed three times in three or more subjects at the
final examinations for graduation, shall be required to repeat the entire work
of the final year before being again admitted to examination. Any student failing
three times in one or two subjects, shall be required to repeat the entire work of
the final year in such subject or subjects before being again admitted to examina-
tion. Should the student again fail at the final examination and at the following
supplementary examination, he will not be permitted to continue as a student,
or to be examined again.

All students must obtain a rating of 75 per cent or higher in every department
in which they may be examined. Therefore, a student may get the required num-



COLLEGE OF PHARMACY 27

ber of total marks, yet fail of graduation because in one department he falls below
the percentage required. Any student failing in one or more departments, but
not in laboratory courses, may present himself for re-examination therein at the
supplementary examination held in September, or at the next regular spring ex-
amination. If successful, he will be graduated without re-examination in the
other departments. Should he so elect, he may be re-examined in all departments,
in order to increase his general average. Failure in a laboratory course will
necessitate the repeating of that course, which repetition must occur during the
summer vacation, except in special cases. See schedule on page 41.

PRIZES AND SCHOLARSHIPS

The College reserves the right to withhold the award of any scholarship or
prize, if, in its opinion, no candidate has exhibited qualifications justifying the
award.

THE HONOR ROLL

The twenty candidates securing the highest averages at the final examinations,
constitute the Honor Roll, provided, however, that such candidates shall have
attained a general average of not less than 90%. The diplomas of such students
will bear a special gold seal of the College, bearing the inscription "With Honor."

TEUSTEES PRIZES

The Board of Trustees offers annually, to be presented at Commencement,
three prizes of $100 each, for competition at a special examination, by members
of the graduating class who have obtained a position on the roll of honor at the
regular examination for graduation. The prizes are awarded respectively for
the best practical examinations in Chemistry, Pharmacy and Materia Medica.
A certificate, stating the honor for which the prize was awarded, will also be
given to each of the recipients of these prizes.

THE ALXJMNI ASSOCIATION PRIZES

OUTLINE OF COURSES

CHEMISTRY

Chemistry 1-2 — General Physics. Lectures and recitations, 2 hours, 4
points. Professor Schaefer and instructors.

This course of lectures extends throughout the entire term and embraces the general and special
properties of matter, mechanics, acoustics, heat, light, magnetism, and electricity. The course
serves as a foundation and systematic introduction to the study of the chemical elements and their
compounds, and to the subjects of chemistry and pharmacy. Special attention is devoted to such
subdivisions as have a more direct bearing upon medicine.

In the University Course of 1926-1927 the lectures and recitations will not include the more
advanced consideration of light, electricity and the structure of the atom. These will be deferred
until the sophomore year.

The lectures are abundantly illustrated with experiments, the College possessing a fine set of
physical apparatus of the latest construction.

Text-books: Sadtler and Coblentz, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, fifth edition; Stewart, College
Physics.

Chemistry 101 — Practical Physics. Laboratory course, 2 hours, 2 points.
Professor Schaefer and instructor.

This work is taken by students of the freshman year, University class, who are assigned to
sections. In order to keep these sections as small as possible, four such groups have been pro-
vided for. The course consists of thirteen half-day periods scheduled as follows:

Group

P. I 9-12:30 Mondays, Sept. 27, 1926 to Jan. 3, 1927, inc.
P. 2 9-12:30 Mondays, Jan. 10, 1927 to April 4, 1927. inc.
P. 3 9-12:30 Wednesdays, Jan. 12, 1927 to April 6, 1927. inc.

This work consists of experiments in fundamental physical measurements followed by special
work in heat, light, sound and electricity. The final exercises of the course will be specialized to
suit the future need of each individual student, whether as pharmacist, physician or food chemist.
The laboratory is equipped not only with apparatus for routine exercised, but has the appliances
necessary for work in colorimetry, spectroscopy, refraction, calorimetry and electro-chemistry.

Chemistry 3-4 — General Inorganic Chemistry. (For First Year College
Students). Lectures and recitations, 3J^ hours, 7 points. Professors Arny
and Schaefer and instructors.

This course begins with a consideration of fundamental principles, and an outline of chemical
theory, embracing the subjects of atoms, molecules, nomenclature, notation, etc., and continues
with explanations of the laws of chemical combination, and rules governing the formation and no-
menclature of acids, bases, and salts. Exercises in writing and calculating chemical equations are
given, followed by problems in pharmaceutical chemistry. The non-metallic elements are after-
ward taken up, with their various compounds, including the inorganic acids. The metals are then
taken up in detail, with the various salts which are of importance in chemistry and pharmacy,
together with the pharmaceutical preparations into which they enter. In this connection the
various pharmacopoeia! tests of identity and the subject of impurities and their detection receive
special attention. All typical methods for the preparation of inorganic and organic salts are ex-
plained. Practical exercises in chemical equations are given and the student is drilled in the calcula-
tions necessary in the preparation of pharmaceutical chemicals. This portion of the course is
treated from the standpoint of the pharmaceutical chemist, and involves a consideration of all
the oflBcial and important phairmaceutical chemical preparation and compounds derived therefrom.

Text-book: Sadtler and Coblentz, Pharmaceutical Chemistry, fifth edition; U. S. Pharmaco-
poeia.



32 COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY

Chemistry 3a-4a — General Inorganic Chemistry (for first year University
students). Lectures and recitations 33^ hours, 7 points. Professors Arny,
and ScHAEFER and instructors.

This course is placed upon the basis of university chemical training, careful attention being
given to the newer theories concerning valence, chemical equilibrium and oxidation and reduction.

On the side of descriptive chemistry, the non-metals from hydrogen through nitrogen are dis-
cussed with particular reference to the isolation of these elements and the preparation of their
compounds in modern chemical technology; industrial processes being illustrated by use of a pro-
jection lantern.

Text-book: Deming, General Chemistry, second edition.

Chemistry 5-6 — Analytical Chemistry. Laboratory and recitations. 3^^
hours, 33^ points. Professors Hostmann and MacAdams and instructors.

The course in analytical chemistry consists of laboratory instruction and is attended by the class
in sections. Each student is provided with the necessary equipment, and is required to perform
all the operations involved in qualitative chemical analysis. The uses of apparatus, the actions
of reagents, and the proper manner of bringing about chemical reactions are illustrated and ex-
plained. On account of the fundamental importance to the true understanding of the subject
the simple laws governing chemical action in solution and the formation of precipitates, the na-
ture of solution, etc., are explained to the student. At first, and under the guidance of the teacher,
