It is currently reported that Charles Francis Adams Jr., has several times of late asserted very positively in conversation his belief that within two years the study of Greek, as a requirement for admission to Harvard college, will have been entirely done away with. How far Mr. Adams' statement is likely to be fulfilled it is of course impossible for one not connected with the government of the college to judge. The statement certainly deserves considerable weight from the fact that Mr. Adams is a prominent member of the Board of Overseers and by his recent address before the Phi Beta Kappa has already taken the strongest stand possible in favor of the movement for the abolition of Greek as a requirement for admission. The report made by the committee of the Board of Overseers upon this subject last spring, sometime previous to Mr. Adams' address, it will be remembered gave very strong indications of some probable move in this direction by the Board at no distant day. Whether as yet any decisive showing of strength by either the more conservative or the more decal side has yet been made we are uninformed. That the question will soon be considered is tolerably evident. What will be the final issue it would be hazardous to predict.
