To the Editor:—
What purpose is accomplished by cluttering our very fine journal with such nonsensical material smearing pages 241-246 of the January 22 issue, when the entire program could have been condensed in one-half to one page?I note in page 245 that some crackpot in the Children's Bureau, doubtless a former worker in bric-a-brac, has stated "there shall be a separate bed for each patient." Doubtless this statement should be called to the attention of the American Association of Obstetricians, Gynecologists and Abdominal Surgeons, as it marks a profound advancement brought to us by socialized medicine, under the Emergency Maternity and Infant Care Program.
