To the Editor:—
May we call your attention to a minor misstatement in the concluding lines of Dr. Rotman's article on alcoholism in the March 10 issue of The Journal, He says "The proper approach to the problem [alcoholism] is exemplified in the pioneering efforts of the Yale projects of the Research Council on Problems of Alcoholism, wherein all facets of the problem are under scientific investigation and wherein particular stress is placed on the biologic, physiologic, sociologic, anthropologic and religious aspects." We raise, of course, no objections to Dr. Rotman's flattering estimate of the possible merits of our activities. We wish simply to record that, while we admire the work of the Research Council on Problems of Alcohol, not one of our activities has any connection with that organization. In origin, finance, policy and all other aspects our activities are solely a venture of the Laboratory of Applied Physiology
