 'Students who have had only two semesters of high-school algebra will take
Math. 71 or la; those
 having had three semesters of high-school algebra will not receive credit
for Math. 71 or la, but
 should elect Math. 72 or 3a; those having had four semesters of high-school
algebra will not receive
 credits for Math. 72 or 3a but should elect Math. lb if they wish to carry
college mathematics. Stu-
 dents having had three or more units of high-school mathematics may upon
approval of the Execu-
 tive Committee be allowed to substitute four credits of electives in lieu
of the required mathe-
 matics. Math. 71 and 72 are for students not intending to continue mathematics
beyond the re-
 quired course. However, students who take either course with marked success
will be permitted to
 take Math. lb if they decide to continue training in mathematics. Those
expecting to take ad-
 vanced work in mathematics and science together with those whose major requires
further training
in mathematics should choose Math. Ia or 3a. Students intending to major
in agricultural engineer-
ing should take Math. 51. Students intending to major in landscape gardening
may substitute Topo-
graphic Engineering 107 for the mathematics requirement.
2Students majoring in landscape gardening may substitute Art Education 50
for Animal Hus-
bandry 1.
'All freshmen in the College of Agriculture, except these who enter with
one semester of work
from some other college, or who have entered this College the second semester
and complete that
semester of work, are required to attend a series of eight weekly one-hour
convocations during
the fall semester. Three or more unexcused absences will result in a failure.
Students who have
failed or who have deferred convocation by consent of the Executive Committee
must present an
extra credit of work to satisfy the graduation requirement.
'A minimum of three hours of physical education or band instruction each
week for two semes-
ters is required of all freshmen students. Men choosing to take military
science instead, must com-
plete two full years of work to satisfy the requirement, at the end of which
time one credit for
each of the four semesters of work will be granted toward graduation.
5Students earning a grade of A in English la may be excused from English
lb. They may even
be exempt from the full year of freshman English providing they pass the
exemption tests which
are given during the second week of residence.
'Students majoring in technical agricultural engineering may substitute Mechanics
3 for Botany 1.
