Excerpt from Quarterly Bulletin, 1919-1920: Special Education Number

Well, Yale has followed her sisters and dropped Latin from her entrance exams.2 You can get stamped as an educated Yale man without knowing bonus bona bonum.

And how much Latin did the American colleges ever teach? Any boy with good teaching could learn enough Latin in six months to get into an American college.' And just this amount, this little smattering of Latin, is enough to make the whole difference in any man's outlook upon civilization. This bonus bona bonum makes French and Spanish and Italian easy to him. It puts him at home in half the words of the English language. It acclimates him in literature, in European travel, in South America. Almost everything an educated man has to do with is tinged with bonus bona bonum.

The tincture of Latinity which the Roman Empire left upon Europe is to modern cultivation what Christianity is to modern religion,-it pervades everything. These two elements - Latin and Christianity - taken together, make up the unity of the modern world. They form the common inheritance of modern Europe, - a sort of deep inter-racial bond, which, so far as human reason can see, is the most important thing in the life of the western world.
