One of the first events of the year was the organization of the Physical Science Club to succeed the Science Conference instituted last year, lhc officers are: President, Charles Novak: vice president. Miss Alta W ells: secretary, A. O. Johnson: treasurer, Ellis Frye, and adviser. Professor W. F. Hoyt. Professor B. C. Hendricks of the department is adviser for the Science Association, a federation of the four science organizations of the Normal. The Club meets every alternate Monday night and the discussions, which have covered the whole range of the department, have been very helpful. The progress of the year toward co-operation with the other departments, and the awakening of interest in scicnctific research and advancement is commendable, but much still remains to be done. Modern civilization without present scientific accomplishment would be an empty shell, and what so profoundly affects civilization and the race is of vital importance to every student and teacher— whether lie realizes it or not.
This has been a record year in the department as well as in the Normal at large. The enrollment in Beginning Chemistry has been 153. as against 108 last year; and 34 in Second Semester Chemistry, as against 20. The total enrollment in Chemistry is over forty per cent in advance of last year. An adjustment of the courses is being made to meet the demands of Domestic Science and Agriculture. There was a class of 12 in Astronomy and a call for advanced work that could not be met because of pressure of other work. This division of the department has fallen to Professor Hoyt, with thirteen student assistants, as follows: Frances Cole, Helen Cornell.
Grace' Gray, Maude Phelps, Pearlc Strand, Anna Sughruc, Gravcc Tcich, Alta Wells, Frank Adams, Bert Dressier, G. S. Hansen. Ray Lundy and William Rocttgcr.
The increase in attendance in Physics has been quite marked. The enrollment in Physics (a) has been in, and in Physics (b) 97. and in Nature Study 12. The total enrollment in Physics and allied work has been 228. This work-lias been under the management of Professor Hendricks and a corps of ten assistants, as follows: Anna Hazcn, Grace Miller, Alta Wells, Ernest Black, A. J. Christenson. Ernest Gilbert, Francis Hughes, Cassius Kennedy, Charles Novak and R. W. Rose.
The facilities of the department have been taxed to the utmost in laboratory space, equipment and teaching force. A new and more commodious Science Building is a consummation devoutly to be wished, and a pressing need as well.

In 1892 the science work of the Normal was organized into two departments, known as the Physical Science Department, under the direction of Professor A. H. Van VIcet, and the Biological Science Department, under the direction of Professor H. B. Duncanson. In anticipation of the needs and requirements along the line of professional training in agriculture, this work was organized as a part of the department in 1902; but, having in a large measure outgrown the facilities, it was made a separate department during the last year. From a very small beginning, the department now has the following equipment: Two instructors and seven assistants, two lecture rooms, two
laboratories, two offices, one store room, and a greenhouse. There are sufficient apparatus and laboratory facilities to work two hundred students at one time. The department has sixty-five compound microscopes, eleven microtomes, two hundred sets of dissecting apparatus, the most modern equipment for the study of plain physiology, a demonstration stcrcopticon, water baths, distilling apparatus, and numerous other essentials to a well equipped laboratory.
