Bemoans the position of Classics in a society with a 'prosaically utilitarian and exclusively financial view of education'. Refers to fellow students L. W. Clarke and R. F. Hewgill. Explains that during the First World War he attended an Officers' course run by Colonel Edwardes and Major Comber, but was refused a commission due to having relations in the German service, and was given a job in postal censorship instead.
