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.
