The chemical laboratory has 96
individual lockers. Each stu
dent has his key and is held re
sponsible for the contents of the
ocker. There is good space for
four persons, and plans made for
ten. Eighteen persons work in
the laboratory at one time, each
having his own Bunsen burner
on his desk and the water with
in his reach just over the lead
trough that carries the waste
liquids. All dilute and common
liquid are on the individual shelf,
while those of a more important
nature are upon a common shelf
in an alphabetical order thus
saving the student much time
in performing his experiments.
When he strikes an experiment
that calls for apparatus not in
his locker, he fills out a borrowed
list and gets the same from the
instructor for the said experi
ment, returning it in good condi
tion when through with it. So,
the plan is for the student to do
experiments that are given and
the material is always on hand
if it can be had.
The biological laboratory is in
good working condition and
work is now going on in it.
There are ten compound micro
scopes and six dissecting micro
scopes for the use of the college
student. There are slides pro
vided for the students when
fresh material cannot be had.
Regular laboratory tables are
now being placed, and plans
made for charts and maps for al]
classes in botany and zoology.
The Physical laboratory is
nearing completion. Already
the gas burners for individual
work have been placed and the
tables are being constructed.
The laboratory is equipped with
apparatus to perform any of the
experiments called for by the
text. The students have done
great work in this department
this year, especially with thc
pulleys heat, light, electricity.

things are planned for next
One trouble is to hold the stu
dent down until he is in line for
the laboratory work, so anxious
is he for the course. If the de
partments are supplemented each
year as they have been for the
past three years, Benedict will
soon have what she says she
wants, that, that will fit the boy
or girl with just the kind of sci
ence he wants and needs and
will feel proud that she can in
troduce the several students to
nature as she without such equip
ment would be unable to do so.
