To the Editor:
—One of the students in the Home Study Department at Columbia, who is a practicing physician and who is taking one of our courses in mathematics, sent us a clipping from your issue of September 27, evidently an editorial, entitled "Medicine and Mathematics." This has interested us very much for the simple reason that this department at Columbia was organized primarily for service to individuals who wish to study certain subjects but who cannot conform to the demands of a formal academic curriculum. Busy professional men, such as physicians, might find the University Home Study course in mathematics exceedingly useful, and it occurred to me that perhaps some of your readers would be glad to know that Columbia University conducts a series of mathematics courses which can be used by the busy professional man in his spare moments.
