GRADUATION.

Applicants for the degree of LL. B. must have been
members of the Senior Glass for the required time,
and must have attended with the prescribed regularity.
They will deliver to the Dean on or before the fifteenth
day of May an orig^inal thesis upon some legal subject
approved by the Faculty. The subject of the thesis
for the year 1897 was: **The historj' of the Negotia-
bility of Instruments and Securities, and the Present
Condition of the Law of that subject in the United
States."

They must pass the examination prescribed by the
Advisory and Examining Board, and conducted by a
committee of that Board. This examination will be
in writing, upon questions prescribed by the Commit-
tee, and answered under the supervision of the Faculty,

without the use of books or any other assistance. It
usually occupies an entire week, and is held early in
June. As the degree of LL.B. conferred by this Uni-
versity entitles the holder to admission to the bar, it will
not be granted except upon the most satisfactory evi -
dence of actual proficiency, or to any person who will
not have attained the age of twenty -one years on or
before the first of October fnHowing, at the latest.

By the Revised Statutes of Missouri of 1889, § 624
(Vol. 1, p. 237), all who have completed this course
and taken this degree are entitled to practice law in
this State without further examination, upon taking
the oath prescribed in the constitution and laws,
(§ 608, and Const., Art. XIV., § 6).

The above examination is upon all the subjects of
the two years' course, and is in addition to the Faculty
examinations held upon the individual subjects during
the two years.

FEES AND EXPENSES.

The annual fee for attendance in either class is $80,
payable in advance. There are no extra charges of
any kind, and the membera of either class are free to
attend all lectures and exercises of both; but no stu-
dent can at the same time be a regular member of
more than one class. No reduction will be made from
the term fee, nor any part of it returned for absence
from any cause.

LAW SCHOOL. 121

Good board and lodging can readily be obtained in
the city at from $4 to $5 per week. The expense may
be lessened to students rooming together. The average
price paid for board with rooms during the last two
or three years by students in good houses near the
Law School is believed to have been not over $20 per
month, while some have obtained it as low as $15.

Those who find it necessary to earn a part of their
living in other pursuits while taking the course can
do so by lengthening that course from two to three
years, taking a proportionate part of the class -work
(to be designated by the Faculty according to circum-
stances of each case) in each year. Every facility
will be extended to them for such an arrangement;
and the charge for tuition in such cases will only be
for two years; but no other diminution of the daily
requirements of attendance and study will be sanc-
tioned, except in the case of special students not can-
didates for a degree.

The expense of text -books for the entire course, if
purchased new and of the latest editions, is about $75.
This sum may be materially reduced by the purchase
of second-hand books which may be usually had in
considerable variety. All the books used in recitation
may be found in the Library and can be studied there
free of charge, but not taken from the room.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDY IN OTHER DE
PARTMENTS OP THE UNIVERSITY.

Students paying fall tuition in the Law Department
may take special studies in the Under^^daate De-
partment without additional charge for tuition, pro-
vided they- are able to do so without interference or
neglect of any part of the Law course. To avail
themselves of this privilege, they must present for
each course a written introduction from the Dean of
the Law Faculty and must engage to attend such
course punctually, and to conform to the same regula-
tions with other students of that course.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND PRIZES.

In pursuance of the terms of a donation of $6,000
heretofore made to the University for the benefit of
the Law School, six free scholarships are. established
in this department; also an annual prize of $50 in
money for the best thesis upon some legal topic, to be
publicly awarded at Commencement. Competition for
this prize is confined to the regular members of the
graduating class in each year under regulations duly
announced.

Applicants for free scholarships should applj' in
person or by letter to the Dean, on or before the
fiftrenth day of September, furnishing written testi-
monials of at least two responsible persons, that the
pecuniary circumstances of the applicant are such as
to make him deserving of this assistance, that he is of

LAW 8CH0OL. 123

good character and standiog, and that he has received
a good English education at least. Other things being
equal, preference will be shown to candidates who
have received a collegiate education, and especially to
those who have done this wholly or partially by their
own efforts. Applicants not personally known to any
of the Faculty will do well to state fully and precisely
their age, place of birth and residence, present occu-
pation, education (both general and legal), and any
other circumstances that may be of weight in making
a selection. Such communications will be held strictly
confidential.

As the applicants for free scholarships are usually
far in excess of the number that can be given, no
student will hereafter have the benefit of such scholar-
ship for more than one year. As far as practicable,
the scholarships will be equally divided between the
two classes — depending upon the number and success
of the candidates for scholarship in either class.

Two members of each class have an opportunity to
earn theu* tuition and a small salary in addition, by
service as librarians, and in other capacities connected
with the work of the School. Application for such
positions must be made in person, on or before the
fifteenth day of September.

For further information, inquiries may be addressed
to Wm. S. Curtis, Law School Building, 1417 Lucas
Place, St. Louis, Mo., or the Secretary of Washington
University.

ST. LOUIS MEDICAL COLLEGE. 139

The St. Louis Medical College was founded in
1842 as the Medical Department of St. Louis Uni-
versity. Incorporated by special charter in 1855, its
annual courses of instruction were continued by the
same Faculty, which, under an ordinance enacted
April 14, 1891, was created the Medical Faculty of
Washington University. In October, 1892, the Col-
lege opened, in its new building, its fifty-first con-
secutive annual session.

The graded course of study established by the St.
Louis Medical College in 1880 has been elaborated
and extended from time to time, as riper experience
has dictated, and always in the direction of higher
standards and broader teaching. Another step in
advance is now taken by requiring four full years of
attendance at College from all future matriculants
before they can become candidates for graduation. It
will be seen that this does not affect students who
entered upon a three years' course in 1895 or 1896.

The annual sessions are of seven calendar months,
and ample opportunities for clinical study are afforded
throughout the entire year. To students fitted by
adequate preliminary training to profit by a compre-
hensive and thorough course of medical study this
College offers ex(;eptional advantages.

A distinctive feature of the St. Louis Medical
College is the requirement of and full provision for
extended laboratory work, by every student, in all the
fundamental subjects of medical study. The extent
and scope of the required practi(»al work in Anatomy

and in Chemistry' have been greatly enlarged, and full
laboratoi-y courses are given in Histology, in Medical
Chemistry, in Pathological Anatomy and Histology^
and in Bacteriology. In extent and completeness of
laboratory equipment, the St. Louis Medical College
ranks with the best and most progressive educational
institutions of this country; in the comprehensiveness
and thoroughness of its laboratory instruction it is
now, as it has been for many years, greatly in advance
of other medical schools in St. Louis.

The methods of clinical teaching followed in the St.
Louis Medical College are characterized by the same
attention to individual training as in its laboratorj'^
instruction. Thorough practical courses in the tech-
nique of Surgical Dressings and Antisepsis and of
Physical Diagnosis are given in the Junior Year, and
systematic use is made of all the general and special
clinics of the College in the further study of diagnostic
methods as illustrated and tested in the personal ex-
amination of patients.

The O' Fallon Dispensary is a special Clinical De-
partment of the College with general Medical and
Surgical Clinics, and special Clinics for Diseases of
Children, for Diseases c^f the Eye, for Genito-Urinary
Surgery, for Diseases of the Nervous System, for Dis-
eases of Women, for Diseases of the Skin, for Diseases
of the Ear, for Orthopaedic Surgery, for Syphilis, for
Diseases of the Nose, Throat and Chest, etc. All
these various Clinics are conducted in the College
building, where large and well arranged reception and

Clinic rooms have been provided on the first floor,
which, together with a spacious and admirably con-
structed operating theatre with its waiting rooms and
annexes, amply meet all requirements of space and
convenience.

An Obstetrical Out-clinic attached to the Dispen-
sary affords the Senior student special opportunities
for practical work in this important branch of medi-
cine.

The extensive general and special Clinics of the St.
Louis Mullanphy Hospital are conducted by members
of the Faculty and physicians connected with the St.
Louis Medical College, arid are devoted wholly to the
instruction of its students. At the City Hospital,
the Female Hospital and the City Insane Asylum and
Poor House, the College shares on equal terms with
others in the privileges of visiting and of clinical
instruction. Weekly Surgical and Medical Clinics are
held at the City Hospital by Professors H. H. Mudd
and W. E. Fischel, and are attended by the second
and third year Classes.

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION.

Candidates for admission to the College will \n*
received upon the following conditions: —

1. Satisfactory' certificates of good moral standing.

2. (a) The presentation of a College degree in
Letters or Science, (&) of a diploma or (certificate of
graduation from an Academy or high school, or {c)
of a certificate showing that the candidate has passed

142 WASHINGTON UNIVSBSITY.

the entrance examination to an accredited College or
scientific school, or (d) the special preliminary ex-
amination prescribed by State reg^ilations for admission
to the study of medicine, or (c) passing an examina-
tion in the following branches: English grammar and
composition, arithmetic, algebra as far as quadratics,
elementary physics,|United States history, geography,
and Latin equivalent to one year in a high school.''*

These examinations will be conducted by examin-
ers, appointed by the Chancellor of Washington Uni-
versity, t

Inasmuch as the requirements preliminary to the
study of medicine and to the registration of physicians
vary somewhat in the different States, it is particularly
enjoined upon all students to conform, in all respects,
to the special regulations governing admission to
medical practice in the State in which they intend to
reside.

ADMISSION TO ADVANCED STANDING.

Students who have attended one course of lectures
in an accredited regular School of Medicine, or who
are graduates of an approved School of Biology, may
enter upon the work of the Second Year upon presen-
tation of a satisfactory- grade from their former school
in the studies of the Junior Year, or upon examina-



* Candidates who fall in the examination In Latin will be given an
opportunity to make up the deficiency before the beginning of their
second year.

t Regular entrance examinations will be held on September 21st and
32nd, 1897. Candidates may, however, arrange for special examination
during the summer by applying to the Dean.

ST. LOUIS MBDICAL COLLEGE. 143

tion in these studies.* Students who have attended
two courses of lectures in an accredited regular School
of Medicine may enter upon the work of the Third
year upon presentation of a satisfactory grade from
their former school in the studies of the Junior and
Second years, or upon examination in these studies.

COURSE OF STUDY.

The studies are systematically graded throughout
the entire course, which henceforth covers four years'
attendance at College. Examinations are held at the
close of the first and second semesters of the Junior,
Second and Third years, and a pass-grade in the work
of each of these years is required as a condition of
advancement to regular standing in the studies of the
next year. On his admission to the College each
student is furnished with a matriculation sheet on
which his standing is certified by the Dean, at the
beginning of each of the four years of the
course; at the close of each semester his attendance
on the prescribed courses of study is attested, on the
same sheet, by the signatures of the several instruc-
tors.

The work is so arranged as to secure the most
profitable distribution of studies. The Junior Year is
devoted largely to laboratory exercises and to training
in diagnostic methods; demonstrative and didactic
teaching being supplemented, throughout, by prric-

* students from other colleges who fall to pass in some of the Junior
examinations, may be received Into the Second Year class on condMon
that they pass these examinatione at the end of the Second Fear.

tical courses, in which prescribed individual work is
done by every student. In the Second Year attention
is particularly given to theoretical and preparatory
subjects, anatomy, physiology, pathology, bacteri-
ology (chiefly laboratory work), therapeutics and
medical diagnosis. Clinical work is taken up only in
its second half. In the Third Year the general prin-
ciples of medicine and surgery are studied in clinics,
conferences and lectures, and certain specialties are
now first considered. These practical studies are ex-
tended into the Fourth Year, which is largely devoted
to the special branches of medicine and surgery, in all
