On Sunday, the twenty-eighth of this coming December, the members of the American Philological Association, assembled for their annual meeting, will listen with bated breath while paymasters from the National Endowment for the Humanities explain what "New Directions in Graduate Education" will be endowed with hand-outs from the pockets of the American serfs. The names of the paymasters are, in order of appearance, Katz, Abramovitz, Menke, and Katz.
