In another column we publish a short report of the speech recently delivered by Senator Works of California, before the United States Senate, in refutation of misstatements which have been made concerning the League for Medical Freedom. The full text of this able address by Senator Works was published in The Christian Science Monitor of July 11.

Quite in line with Senator Works' speech is the following editorial, which recently appeared in the Pasadena (Cal.) Daily News, and which shows by the words of the doctors themselves the animus of the demand of the American Medical Association for both state and national legislation. Following is the editorial in full:—

An editorial in the American Journal of Clinical Medicine advocates the theory that "the inhabitants of each community should be equally divided among the physicians." After announcing this rather startling plan, assuring prosperity to members of the profession regardless of qualification or the preferences of the dear people, the editorial goes on to say that "if there were no extra fees for surgery it is possible that operating would become somewhat less common."
