The Latin Club in secondary schools is the result of the incessant
demand that our Latin instruction must be vivified. Many teachers feel
the need of supplementary work in their Latin teaching, but they have
been handicapped because of a lack of material as well as a lack of time.
This is especially true of the teacher in the small town. To help meet
this demand is the purpose of this book.
The programs have purposely been made too long for one session in
order that the teacher may have some choice in selection, and that, in
case all references are not accessible, enough may be secured to insure
a reasonably varied program.
I would suggest that the Club purchase as many Perry pictures and
Berlin photographs of classical subjects as possible and that its
members coöperate with the city library board for the purchase of such
books as are essential, in case there is no school fund available for this
purpose. Some high school alumnus in whose heart there is
appreciation of Rome's gift to us might present a book to his Alma
Mater. Another might offer some suitable magazines, properly bound.

Of a Latin Club, as of most school work, it may be said that usus est
optimus magister, and especially applicable in this connection are the
words of Horace: _Dimidium facti, qui coepit_.
