Miles City (Mont.) Star

I have read a correspondent's criticism of The Christian Science Monitor editorial entitled "The Medical Goosestep." His letter puts a different construction on this editorial than was intended. The editorial was written in criticism of a certain element in the medical profession who are using the war as a means of promoting a medical monopoly. Christian Scientists recognize the need of surgeons and physicians in the Army, but they also recognize that there is a nice distinction between doctoring a man and controlling him medically.

It is quite generally known that there are two classes of physicians, the one class are humanitarians and the other class are politicians. We are of the opinion that the doctor who has criticized the editorial in the Monitor belongs to the former class, because his criticism has the ring of sincerity, although we believe him to be mistaken in his deductions.

We'd love to hear from you!
