To the Editor:—
Among the articles appearing in a syndicated newspaper column called "Child Behavior" and coming from the Gesell Institute of Child Development is a series regarding the treatment of myopia by exercises. It might seem obvious that the published articles do not represent the views of the Section of Ophthalmology of Yale University School of Medicine, but because the Gesell Institute is located in New Haven, Conn., we have been receiving from colleagues, even within the state of Connecticut, inquiries as to why we permitted such articles to come from Yale University. I wish to call attention to the fact that the Gesell Institute is a private organization, with no connection with Yale University, and that the Yale University School of Medicine has no control over, and does not necessarily sanction, any article coming from this Institute.
