To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

Teaching several Greek courses, and constantly inspecting the plans of study offered by students of literature, I am in a position to speak of the motives which lead Harvard men to study Greek. The real motive is the human interest. Greek has vital connection with all literary and art work; and men interested in such studies sometimes wake up to the fact of the great humanistic value of this difficult but fascinating language. One who really knows Greek is near the living springs of poetry, drama, philosophy, art and religion. C. P. PARKER.
