Army and Navy Journal

Commenting upon the President's recent modification of his order regarding the practice of medicine in the Canal Zone, you say that "the demand to practise medicine without the proper permit, our medical contemporary maintained, aimed at the 'surrender of the wonderful results obtained by the toil and sacrifice of devoted, clear-headed, scientific men.'"

It should be noted that the stipulations of the President's modified order, which provide that "such sanitary laws, orders, rules, or regulations as now or hereafter may be enforced in the Zone" shall be complied with, maintain and safeguard that which is generally conceded to be real achievement along the lines under consideration. Christian Scientists have never opposed the most extreme measures of reasonable sanitation. They believe in the absolute cleanliness of both body and mind. They believe that if the people were as clean as they should be, morally and physically, there would be little sickness in the world.
