To the Editor:
—In The Journal, September 24, in a query regarding a reprint entitled "Birth Marks" by Dr. Lynne B. Greene read at the Annual Meeting of the Western Physical Therapy Association, the correspondent somewhat implies that the possibly questionable scientific character of such reprint reflects on the possibly scientific and ethical standing of the association. As president of the Western Physical Therapy Association may I have space in your valued columns to state that membership in the association is conditioned on membership in the American Medical Association; that the outgoing president of the American Electrotherapeutic Association is a past president of the Western, and the outgoing and the incoming president of the American College of Physical Therapy is a member of the Western; and lastly, that neither the Western nor the A. M. A. is to be judged solely by the utterances of one of its members.
