To the Editor:
—My attention has just been called to some of the statements made by Dr. Lee Alexander Stone in his publication Physical Culture; particular attention being invited to the statement on page 57 of the July issue, that Dr. Stone, the author of the article in question, is a surgeon in the United States Army, with the rank of lieutenant colonel, and is consequently in a position to speak with authority and intelligence.Dr. Stone was a captain in the temporary forces from August, 1917, to December, 1918, when he was discharged with the grade of captain. He did not reenter the medical service, and so far as the Medical Department is concerned, has had no connection with it since his discharge.
