Excerpt from The Classical Journal, 1905, Vol. 14

In the men's colleges Latin, like Greek, is at present down in the very depths of the Slough of Despond. There is no question about this. Registration, particularly in the upper classes, has dropped to a One does not have to count the Seniors. He can take them all in at a glance. Almost without exception the men fitted for military service have, with the purest of patriotic motives, left college to enter that branch of the service for which they have the highest qualifications. In no other war, I believe, have all the people been so anxious to do their best for the country. Every body knows that Princeton, which has always been devoted to the classics, has become a war college, pure and simple, if the students elect the course favored by the authorities. In another great university known to the writer only eight Sophomores have elected Latin for the current year, whereas in other years more than two hundred have regularly made this election. Likewise in a small college, where about thirty Sophomores ordinarily take Latin, only eight signed up for this subject last May. Necessarily the classical instructors in these institutions have been obliged to seek positions in schools or to go into war work or business. In many cases even assistant professors have changed their occupations, while many faculty members of all ranks are in their country's service at Washington or elsewhere. What is true of the colleges and universities known to the writer is without doubt true of all. And this is as it should be for the duration of the war.
