LATIN, GREEK STUDIES:
Classical Courier Seeks
To Stimulate Education
By HERB ROVNER
The University Department of Classical Studies has for the past
six years been publishing a small mimeographed newspaper, The Clas-
sical Courier, which reaches some 700 Latin and Greek high school
teachers throughout Michigan and neighboring states.
Originally the paper sought only to acquaint Latin and Greek teach-
ers too far distant from the University with the activities of the Uni-
versity's classical department.
4 * * *
HOWEVER it now includes informative tips to these teachers on
how to stimulate an interest in Latin and Greek in high school stu-
In 1942, the first year of its publication, The Courier started
a campaign for the promotion of classical studies in a world of
scientific education.. In 1943 to further this plea, plans were
suggested for a Latin Week in the high schools which The Courier
hoped "would keep the public, particularly our prospective pupils,
aware of the nature and significance of.your work."
As a result, Latin Week was initiated in many Michigan high
schools and is annually observed, fostering an interest in the classics.
TODAY TEACHERS from this state, Ohio, and Illinois send fre-
quent contributions to The Courier describing devices which have
proved stimulating and effective in classroom practice.
The Courier under the ditorship of Professor Frank O. Copley of
the department continues its efforts in behalf of the classics as an im-
portant element in our educational program.

FOLLOWING THE Japanese
lecture, Suzuki translated the
main points of his address on
Woman's Place in Japanese So-
ciety for the benefit of The Daily.
"Japanese women have an im-
portant role in the homes for
democratization," Suzuki assert-
Contrary to popular opinion, he
said, women have always held
much influence in Japan, and at
present are gaining more.
"Over 15 women hold seats in
the House of Representatives and
the Diet. This is more than in
the United States," Suzuki point-
THEY WERE elected since April
1946 when Japanese womendvoted
for the first time, he stated.
They won the franchise and

THE PAPERS are inscribed to

Two years ago Mr. brone was
musing over the problem of
what to do with his collection of
papers. His wife, also an actress
and producer, had graduated
from the University in the class
of 1904 so he decided to send his
letters, manuscripts, books, and
clippings of the theatrical world
It was Maurice Browne and his
wife who in 1912 founded the Lit-
tle Theatre in Chicago and grad-
ually opened more across the
western United States experiment-
ing in plays and play production.
HE WENT ABROAD and has
since produced an dacted in Eng-
land. Paul Robeson was first cast
as Othello by Mr. Browne, and he
