Every year the expression, “It Is all Greek to me," has a sharper point to It The reason Is that each year few* er boys and girls study Greek, re marks “Girard" in the Philadelphia Press. I see by the list of students In • typical American college that only one boy In 15 now studies Greek. In the same college 30 years ago over half the students read Greek. A drop from 50 to leas than 7 per cent In a generation la going fast and shows that Greek will soon be not •nly a dead, but a hurled language In tbe United States. And from Oxford, la England, comas a wall that tbe university Is fast los ing ground. The year before the war, In 1913, 953 students entered Oxford, bnt 30 years earlier 784, matriculated. And of those who came In 1913, 180 were Rhodes scholars. From an Oxford man I learn that Greek Is the trouble. Cambridge uni versity abolished Greek, hut Oxford did not. although in nearly all the five preparatory schools In England G: eok is no longer taught. So It seems that schools do not pre pare hoys for Oxford and Oxford stands still. ALL LIVING THINGS LINKED Scientists Aver There Is Even a Bond of Sympathy Between Humanity and a Stone. If, as scientists tell us, there Is a connecting Jink between human be ings and animals, animals and vege tables, and vegetables and minerals, there Is a bond of sympathy between you and a stone. Everything hecomeo merely a matter of degree, with hu tnnn beings—In tbeir own estimation— at the top. A great scientist. Sir Jngadls Chan dra Bose, has 3ust given some aston ishing facts regarding vegetables. In which he shows that they have many of our characteristics, says Ixtndon Answers. The effects of stimulants on vege tables are similar to the effects on ani mals. Vegetables can also he put under anesthetics, they Can be pnl roped and they are subject to the death spasm. The latter point has a special Interest for vegetarians. Per haps the most astonishing fact U that vegetable plants possess greater sensi bilities than nnlmals, enabling them to record wireless signals. When does a vegetable end and an animal begin?
