                                  AN ACT

     To empower and authorize any school or college or institution of
        optometry, incorporated under the laws of Pennsylvania,
        organized, operated and conducted not for profit, which has a
        prescribed course of study, to confer a degree certifying to
        the completion of such prescribed course of study.

        Section 1.  Be it enacted, &c., That any school, college, or
     institution, incorporated under the laws of Pennsylvania,
     organized, operated and conducted not for profit, teaching
     optometry, which shall have a prescribed course of study for a
     period of not less than two years in such study of optometry,
     shall have the right and authority to grant to and confer upon
     any student, who has finished the prescribed course of study
     satisfactory to the faculty of such institution, the degree of
     doctor of optometry.
        Section 2.  That nothing in this act contained shall be
     construed to permit such person or student, receiving such
     degree, to practice optometry within this Commonwealth, unless
     he shall first have obtained a certificate of licensure from the
     State Optometry Board, nor shall the receiving of such degree by
     any person, who shall also have received a certificate of
     licensure to practice optometry, qualify or authorize him to
     practice optometry by any other means than described in section
     one of the act of the thirtieth day of March, one thousand nine
