By JUDITH DUKLER
With the success of the new
Latin program-for high school or
University students in beginning
courses-the Language Laboratory
has proven its versatility in solv-
ing any new problems of presen-
tation, E. M. Hamson, acting di-
rector of the Lab, said yesterday.
This new method has several ad-
vantages over the Lab's instruc-
tion in other languages. The stu-
dent is allowed freedom in start-
ing and stopping the tape, permit-
ted to proceed at his own rate of
learning, and the monitor is en-
abled to hear each student and to
be in direct communication with
This new system is a part of
Prof. Waldo Sweet's method for
teaching Latin. Prof. Sweet, of the
Romance languages department,
believes that one doesn't teach but
that the individual must discover
things for himself.
On His Own
Therefore he has devised a sys-
tem where the student proceeds
at his own rate of speed.
Mechanically, the system is sim-
ple. Each student has his own tape
and booth. He reads the program,
then turns the tape on and off to
answer the questions on it. He
should be able to answerreadily
each question on the tape, and
since each tape also has the an-
swers, he can check himself.
Yet he is not held back by the
rates of progress of his classmates,
and, in responding to every ques-
tion, the student has the advan-
tage of individualized, more thor-
ough instruction, Harrnson said.
Monitors All Teachers
The monitors now are the mem-
bers of Prof. Sweet's course in
teaching Latin. They are them-
selves high school Latin teachers
learning the new method.
There are two ways, under the
present arrangement, for the mon-
itors to listen to the students, who
are volunteers from Forsythe Jun-
ior High School.
They can either take the moni-

his being aware of the discussion
Comparisons have been made
between the student who learns
Latin through this new method
and those who learn by the so-
called "traditional" methods.
No disadvantages to the new
method have been found. In fact,
most of the students, if not ahead
of their contemporaries using the
older methods, are, at least on a
par with them. The. students, by
"discovering" and continually re-
sponding to the language, also do
not forget what they have learned
after the final exam, Hamson said.
Expansion in Future
Concerning the future of this
program and its extension to oth-
er languages, he said "it will be
extended when other languages
have materials ready for this type
However, an extension of this
program to all languages offered
at the University would raise many
