LOUIeA!NA STATE rsIVERSITT ti
AND AoRICLTURAL & MECIIA.MICAL COLLEGE.
BATON ROUoR. June, 1P1.-.
Col. Wri. Preston Johnstun : a
MR. PRESIDENT-It may be of gener- d
al interest to the citizens of Louisiana c
to know that the Mechanical Department tl
connected with the Louisiana State Uni- d
versity and Agricultural and Mechaiical v
College, is now organized and that prac- d
tical operations have already begun.
Within the past few months there has
been a nest workshop erected on the t,
grounds connected with the University
and at a convenient distance, which is
supplied with several carpenter's bench
es and tools, three turning lathes, with
the necessary belting and shafting, a
four horse power Baxter portable steam 0
engine, a grind st(one and some black- P
smith tools, other additions being con
templated during the present month.
In this building will be conducted vari
one exercises in wood working, embra- a
cing carpentry wood turning, and pat
tern making ; and as the occasion re
quires, the building is to be enlarged by
the addition of rooms, which will be e
supplied with the necessary appliances t
for practical instruction in the manipu
lation of iron and other metals.
'In reference to the method of con- t
ducting shop exercises, it may be well 8
to say, that a mechanical course embra- f
cing a period of three years is to be giv
en at the University,.during twolyears of t
which each cadet selectiug;that course: 8
will be required to attend the shop ex
ercises. It is proposed so to arrange the I
work performed that a cadet after the 6
completion of his course will have ac- I
quiredsuch varied knowledge and pro- t
ticiency both in construction and manual I
skill, as to enable him to pursue success
fully the occupation of a Mechanical
As far as practicable, thelcourse given
in the workshop will be in accordance
with the plan adopted by the Stevens
Institute of Mechanical Engineering at
Hoboken, New Jersey, The initial step
in this course is to supply each cadet 1
with a few of the most ordinary car
peoter's tools and have their different
uses explained, as well as the methods
of sharpening and otherwise putting
them in order; after which, the tools be
ing expressly put out of order, the
beginner will undertake the work of
sharpening and readjusting them. It
being a matter of utmost importance
for a mechanic to keep his tools in per
fect order at all times, considerable at
tention will be given to such exercises
as will aid the learner in overcoming
the many difficulties he will encounter
in this regard, and trom time to time he
will be called upon to give practical
evidence of his proficiency respecting
the case in question.
Without entering into details, it will
suffice, for the present, to say that the
course in wood working, which will be
the tirst given, and which will probably
embrace the period of one year, will be
arruged in a systematic and regularly
progressive manner, beginning with in
struction in sharpening tools and the
use of the saw and jack plane,and thence
leadling step by step to the higher grades
of carpentry, such as house, bridge and
roof framing, cabinet and pattern mak
ing. In conducting his exercises, the in
structor, as aids in arranging and syste
matizing his work, will make use ofthe
most approved text books bearing on
the subject, among which will he Tred
gold's Carpentry, Shelly on Workshop
Appliances and Holly on Saw Filing. Au
impoant feature connected with the,
course, will be the instruction in wood
turning. The lathes will be run hby
steam power and will contribute vastly
motion to the hand, so neoessary to the
aocomplished mechanic. Wood turning
in its variety of forms i* not only a beau
tiful art, but to many it.is a source of
great interest and amusement.
In continuation of this brief sketch,
which is scarcely more than a synopsis
of the contemplated course in practical
mechanics, it will be well to mention,
that a liberal amount of theoretical train
ing on subjects relating to Architecture
and Mechanics will be given, embracing e
also Natural Philosophy, Physics,Chem- shi
istry, Mathematics, Descriptive Geome
try,.Shades and Shadows and one or
more of the modern languages, which C
will be taught by the Professors in these
branches. Special attention will be
given to Architectural and Mechanical
Drawing, these being the ground-work
of the science of Engineering. 8
The course in Drawing will begin with
a limited number of free hand exercises.
Then will come Practical Geometry,
which enables the learner to use his in
struments in a neat and effective manner,
besides imparting valuable knowledge
as to the manner of laying out work.
Problems in Projections and Descriptive
Geometry coming next, the student will
be repared by successive and easy steps
tolte up exercises in Architectural and ig
Mechanical Drawing which will be ar
ranged so as to cover the most ground C
possible during the prescribed course.
The Mechanical Departm-nt of the
University being in its intancy, the most
that could be accomplished during the
present term, was instruction in elemen
tary Mechanics, Practical Geometry,
Projections and Machine Drawing. We
have also accomplished the erection of
the shop and arefitting it up for active op
erations when the school reopens in Oc- GI
tober, and the preparation has so far Cj
progressed as to admit of some exercises
already, which will be continued for
some time, in order that the organization
of a class may be perfected at once, and
thus obviate any delay in beginning work
in the fall. The class now consists of M
about sixteen members, and there is no 71
doubt that there will be a gratifying in- 4
crease as to numbers before the close of
the:present year. The above, Mr. Presi- A
dent, is respectfully submitted as con
veying a general idea of what has been
done, and what is contemplated in refer- 0:
ence to mechanical instruction in the9
Louisiana State University and Agricul- T]
tural and Mechanical College. B]
I am respectfully yours,

Two Ways of Baying a Thing,
To those who take delight in flowers E
of Rhetoric, and to members of fire comrn
panies, the following extract from Lich- p
tenberg's Code of Regulations in case of
fire, will, no doubt, prove edifying:
"If a house takes fire, we must seek,
above all things, to protect the right
side of the house, standing on the left, C
and on the other hand, the left side of o
the house, on the right; for if we, for
example, should protect the left side of S
the house, on the left, then the right
side of the house lies to the right of the c
left, and consequently, as the fire lies to . i
the right of this side, and of the right
side (for we have assumed that the house c
is situated to the left of the fire), there- c
fore, the right side is situated nearer to
the tire than the left side, and the right I
Sside of the house might catch fire if it C
was not protected before itcame to the c
left which is protected. Consequently,
something might be burnt, that is not
protected, and that sooner than some
thing else would be burnt, even if it was
not protected; consequently, we must
let alone the latter and protect the for
"lIn order to impress the thing on one's
mind, we have only to note, if the house
.s situated to the right of the fire, then
Sit is the left side, and if the house is to
Sthe left, it is the right side."
In plain, common sense English, pro
tect that side of tle threatened house
which is nearest the bnrning dwelling.
Age of University students.
How old should a boy be when he en
g ters a college or University ? Teachers
agree that the younger a boy enters the
worse he does. They, therefore, warn
parents against the folly of sending
children, immature and void of self-re
se traint, to encounter temptations which
a few years later would prove no allure
ment at all from duty. Parents, on the
Sother hand, in their eagerness to push
Stheir sons into the arena of life, strive
Sto get them into college as soon as
e possible, regardless of the perils they
Sencounter, because not alive to them.
At Yale College, Amherst College, the
University of Tennessee and Ontario
e Agricultural College, they are not ad
mitted before they attain fifteen years
At Washington and Lee University and
the Universities of Virginia, and of Cal
ifornia, and the Iowa Agricultural Col
e lege, sixteen years is the minimum. The
SLouisiana State University admits boys
e s of tourteen. Is not this too young ?
