To the Editor:—  Dr. Domino's suggestion on the use of the word "sympathomimetic" when referring to atropine and scopolamine is quite proper.

A minor defense for my position may be the fact that, though pharmacologically incorrect, anesthesiologic parlance has permitted the term "sympathomimetic" to be used with full understanding of its actual significance.
