Deploring the lack of knowledge of the Greek and Latin languages at Harvard, Professor W. R. Halliday, of the University of Liverpool, who is lecturing on Greek and Roman history during the second half-year, in the absence of Professor W. S. Ferguson in Europe, said, "Probably because both Latin and Greek are rather difficult to master, students at Harvard, as well as in Liverpool, tend to avoid these studies. I find that American students are eager to learn and co-operate splendidly with the professor. I have never seen a finer library than Widener, for the organization is such that research is made most easy." Professor Halliday was graduated from Oxford, 1908, and has since held professorships at the Universities of Glasgow and Liverpool.
