To the Editor:—
In my article entitled "Syphilis Case Finding in Industry," published in The Journal April 6, an error was made in stating the annual attack rate of syphilis per hundred thousand of population in Great Britain. The statement in error appears in the fourth paragraph (p. 1321) and reads as follows: "The annual attack rate of syphilis per hundred thousand of population in the United States in 1935 was 796 compared with 47 in Great Britain (clinics only)..."The correct annual attack rate of syphilis for Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) in 1935 was 15.3 per hundred thousand of population. It is, therefore, respectfully requested that a public correction notice be inserted in an early issue of The Journal. This notice should state that, through inadvertence, I incorrectly quoted an annual syphilis attack rate of 47 per hundred thousand of population for Great Britain in 1935 instead
