CHAPTER XIX

at Eton, what could be better ? Is there anyone among us who has not profited from the Odes of Horace or book twenty-one of Livy ? No one," said Worming with a gesture. "At least I don't think so. That's all I've got to say." He glanced at his watch and sat down quickly.
" Hear, hear," said Wren. There were loud whispers among the debate.
" I call on Mr. Harbord," said Swinley.
Oliver got up very slowly and made a fatuous face at Peter. " Mr. President," he began.
" M'dame, and m'tutor," added Warburton.
" What ?" said Oliver, leaning down. Miss Fuller nodded and smiled at him.
" I will begin again. Mr. President, m'dame, m'tutar, and gentlemen. A modern education prepares one in the most efficient manner to face the practical problems of existence as they arise."
" Hear, hear," said Peter.
" When we look round on the world to-day-a world, I may add, of money and machines, can we doubt that the Latin hexameter and the Greek iambic are no longer sufficient ?" Oliver looked round the library for an answer. Wren was smiling, probably at the thought of Harbord composing a Greek iambic.
" No, we cannot doubt it," said Oliver, as no answer came. " We need something more to-day. We need a system of education more in touch with the facts of life." Oliver smiled, bit his lip and recovered himself. " More flexible, more vital, and more, yes, I think that's all I've got to say." He sat down and grinned.
" Very good, Harbord," said Miss Fuller, tapping him on the shoulder. She smiled her warm approval.
Warburton added a point to the classical case and sat down again.
" Will you say something, ma'am? " said Swinley. Miss Fuller half rose as if to address the house. "Not now, Swinley. It's very nice of you to ask me. Perhaps later."
