FOUNDATION The New York State Veterinary CoUege was established by act of the State LqiIlature in 1894: "There is hereby established a State Veterinary College atCorne11 University," Laws of New York •• 894. p. 307. By action of the Board of Trustees of Cornell University. June 10, 1894. the location of the College upon the University Campus was authoriud.. It ~a.s further. ~n.acted that while tbe Univenity does not undertake any financtal responslblhty for the buildincs, equipment, or maintenance of the College, it do~ consent to furnish matruction upon such subjects as are or shall be in its curriculum. upo:\ ~ lIch tmns as may be deemed equitable. By further acts, of the U!gislature provision was made for the buildings, equipment, and maintenance of the College, and finally in 11i97. by "An ad to provide for the administration of the State Veterinary College, cstahli~hed by chapter 153 of the laws of 1894." the Trustees of Cornell UniVl"r ..;it ~· wen,' tfttrusted with its administration.

Professor: D. H. UDALL. Instructors: E. R. CUSHING; M. G. FINCHER. The course in \'eterinary medicine, principles and practice, extend, over tbe last two years of undergraduate study, the subjects of the second year being distinct from, and complementary to those of the first. It includes the tutional dietetic and toxic affections and the non·infectious maladies of the dif· ferent systems of organs-digestive, respiratory, circulatory, urinary, cutaneous, and visual-of the various genera of domestic animals. The wide scope of the course, covering as it does the varied manifestations of a given morbid coodition in aU domestic animals in tum, tbe complications in each, caused by constitution, environment, utilization, microbian infection, etc., and the application of pr0phylactic and therapeutic measures to all in turn, gives a breadth and amdness do view wbich should render the student a reliable and skillful veterinary patholt; Jist. pbysician, and sanitarian. The course on contagious diseases deals with the genetal subject of infection .and contagion; the microbiology of diseases in which miao-otganismI OOJJ.Jtitute
the fll!8l!lltial factor: the a.ccessory and restrictive envir0M?ent, ~ch as, condition
of soil, water, air, climate, culture, season, weather, anuna! Industries, trade, miciatWa.. war, consumption of animal f~.etc.; ~he.d.iagnosis of the dilf~t pJacues; the various methods.of wppHllloo by the IOdlVldual owneT, the mumctpality, town, county, state, or nation: and the eaclusion of pestilences from a country. The traoamissibility of each contagious disease to different genera oC animals. from animal to man, and from man to animal, together with the sus· ceptibility of each genus to immunization and the best known means of securing this receives due attention. Enzootic di--n es are carefully studied, and the various causative factors in location, environment, and in constitutional or racial susceptibility are fully dealt with, as subsidiary to prevention and treatment. Our proximity to tbe city and to a well stocked agricultural country tends to secure a greater variety of patients than can be had in a large city remote ((om coantry Bocks and berds. Students take charge of individual cases in the hospital and ambulatory clinic and keep a record of each case \' ith treatment. The course also includes instruction in diagnosis. Through the medium of laboratory guides students are expected to acquire a methodical system of examination by repeated systematic observations on both normal and diseased animals. The work involves the use 01 various special diagnostic methods taught in other laboratories of the CoIItge, such as uamination of the blood, urine, and feces, the application of eero-diagDostic methods, etc. Ambulatory CU:aic. An ambulatory clinic or out-clinic has been established (or the purpose of giving instruction to students under conditions identical with tho6e encountered in private practice. Proper conveyances and equipment have been provided and an opportunity offered for obeerving such diseased (ann and dairy animals as cannot be entered in the clinics of the College. The student thereby not only has an opportunity to see cases not lUdiJ.y brought to the college clinic. but also assists in handling cases in the same manner and under the same environment as is required o( the country practitioner. As the vicinity of Ithaca is largely devoted to dairying, valuable clinical material relatiug to obstetrics and the diseases of dairy cows is available and

APPENDIX A Opening_ for Veteri.D.uia.n1 in Amerita
In the Medical Department of the United Stales Army there is a demand for a limited number of veterinarians. Beginning with the rank of Second Lieutenant, the veterinarian earns promotion after certain periods of service and examination. The initial salary is Jr,700 and quarters. 2. In the Bureau of Animal Industry. United States Department of Agricul. hu"c, a number of veterinarians are employed professionally as livestock agent. and inspectors, inspectors and superintendents of quarantine stations, and investigators in bacteriology and pathology. By an Act of Congress, the federal veteri. nary inspectors must be graduates of a veterinary college maintaining the requireIncnts of the Bureau. Applicants fOT the position mu~t take a civil service examination. The initial salary is '1,500. 3. In the different states there are appointive positions as State Veterinarian, and in some states as County or District Veterinarian . The5e -are desirable positions and inv6lve considerable responsibility. ",. The time is not far distant when each municipality must have its veterinary inspector of markets, abattoirs, and butcher meat, as well as of milk and ot her dairy products. 5. \'eterinarians are needed to serve on tubercu1osiJ;. and other commissions, in order that work in this field may be conducted intelligently and successfully along scientific lines. The c.onlrol of disease depends largely upon those specially trained in the anatomy, physiology, hygiene, and pathology of the lower animals. 6. Educators in comparative pathology are wanted in agricultural and veterinary colleges. and experiment stations, and must soon be in demand by C\'('fy medical college that aims to keep abreast of the times. 7. There are always openings in the wide field of private veterinary practice. With a ratio of three farm animals to every human being, and with less than one veterinarian to every thirteen doctors of medicine for man, the balance of opportunity seems to be largely in favor of the veterinary practice, and this preponderance must steadily increase with the r ecovery of stock values and the increase in the number of farm animals.
