Volume VI OCTOBER 191O Number i 



With this number Classical Journal enters upon its sixth volume. 
Our old readers will at once notice a new departure in the fact 
that the first number of the volume is issued in October instead 
of in November. We are glad to annoimce that this means an 
issue of nine numbers for the year instead of the eight numbers 
of former years. The total number of pages wiU not, however, 
be increased for the present, although it is hoped that this may 
be done in another year. 

The old contract with the University Press under which the 
first five volumes were published expired with the publication 
of the June number of the present year. After considering all 
available choices, the Executive Committee has, by the authorizing 
vote of the Association, made a new contract with the University 
of Chicago Press for a period of five years, with such changes as 
seemed mutually desirable to the Association and the Press. The 
Journal is to be congratulated upon the continuance of this 
relation with its publishers, who have contributed much to the 
establishment of its present standard of material excellence. 

An important change in the management of one of the depart- 
ments of the Journal is announced. At the request of Professor 
J. J. Schlicher, who for several years past has edited the "Reports 
from the Classical Field" for the Journal, the managing editors 
have decided to divide this department into two independent 
departments. It is proposed to continue one of these under the 
management of Professor Schlicher, and to include therein the 


survey of general conditions and practice in classical teaching and 
study, a survey which he has already so successfully instituted 
and conducted. The other department, under the head of "Cur- 
rent Events," will present everything that is properly news — 
occurrences from month to month, meetings, changes in faculties, 
performances of various kinds, etc. This department will be 
under the charge of four associate editors who will have each his 
separate field, and who will together cover the whole field. These 
fields as outHned will be as follows: (i) the territory covered by 
the Associations of New England and the Atlantic States; (2) the 
Middle States west to the Mississippi River; (3) the Southern 
States, and (4) the territory west of the Mississippi, exclusive of 
Louisiana and Texas.
