Abstract

To the Editor:  —May I say, though not in approval, that you show great restraint in answering the series of questions propounded by "a physician of Colorado" (The Journal, July 14, 1917, p. 128). Question 3 asks, "Is it possible for Seventh Day Adventists to get relief from duty, such as examining troops and such other work except caring for the sick, on Saturday?" How can you have patience with any man, presuming that he is in his right mind, who exalts petty denominationalism above patriotism and service at such a time as this? It sounds suspiciously as though your correspondent were at heart a pacifist. "Our denomination is planning," etc. What have denominations to do with this grim business of war? For myself, I wish you had answered the questions a little more vigorously.
