Kindly allow me space to make a few comments on an article appearing in your issue of May 2 dealing with a report on nonmedical healers issued by the Committee on the Costs of Medical Care. The report asserts that the laws are inadequate because they do not prescribe the same high standard for what it calls unqualified practitioners as it does for medical practitioners.

As far as Christian Science is concerned the writer of the report seems to forget that there is a clause in the Healing Arts Law of the District which exempts from its operation the practice of Christian Science. This same exemption or a similar one is contained in the laws of nearly all the states in the Union. The exemption reads as follows: "This act shall not apply to persons treating human ailments by prayer or spiritual means as an exercise or enjoyment of religious freedom."

We'd love to hear from you!
