To the Editor:
—You have answered some important questions on the Harrison bill in the last issue of The Journal. But I would like to know what the physician is to do for the poor dope fiend who comes pleading for a supply of their favorite drug to tide them along, to prevent them from "going crazy or committing suicide." I noticed a report from Washington to-day saying that it was discretionary with the physician, but I would like to have your interpretation.
