with an exercise; the Third Section applies the inflections, vocabulary, and syntax in Translation Exercises. Forms and syntax are introduced where they seem best adapted to the pupil's progress. In each Section suggestions for study are given. The book contains numerous special features based on classroom experience, and is in harmony with the recommendations of the National Education Association.

The Vocabulary of the Book. The vocabulary, based on Lodge's Vocabulary of High School Latin and Browne’s Latin Word List, does not merely stress the military side. In the earlier chapters Latin words related to familiar English words are chosen, thus diminishing vocabulary difficulties while the pupil masters the inflections.

The Latin Selections. Each of the Latin Selections was written for its particular place in the book.

The Aim of the Book. The aim of the book is to increase the interest and pleasure of the first year of Latin, and to insure certain practical results, while establishing a thorough basis for further study. The direct and more restricted aim is the learning of Latin by the help of English and of English by the help of Latin; the broader aim is to impart even to the beginner some vivid suggestion of the civilization attained by Rome.

The author wishes to express his gratitude to his collaborators and to the following teachers who read the proof sheets and offered many helpful suggestions : Professor Albert A. Howard, Harvard University ; Professor John Greene, Colgate University ; Professor John K. Lord, Dartmouth College ; Mr. Joseph P. Behm, Central High School, Syracuse, N. Y.; Principal Elmer E. Bogart, Morris High School, New York, N. Y.; Mrs. Harriet Kitts, High School, Schenectady, N. Y.; Principal F. R. Parker, High School, Elmira, N. Y.
