Abstract

The widespread influence of a frank discussion of existing evils is shown by an editorial in the New Orleans Picayune, Sunday, February 2. Nearly a column of space on the editorial page is devoted to a report of a recent joint meeting held by the Chicago Medical Society and the Chicago druggists. After commenting on the war which is being waged on "patent medicines" and the harm resulting from the use of such preparations, the Picayune says: "There are many pharmacists who deplore the use by physicians of these ready-made compounds.... Many leading physicians are realizing the importance of such a reform and are uniting with the pharmacists in the effort to secure such a result." In such joint meetings the Picayune sees a possibility "of a real reform that will put all medication on its merits and redound to the proper protection of the people, both sick and well."
