To the Editor:
—The recent report of the Council on Medical Education in The Journal A. M. A., June 16, 1906, page 1853, invites comment and suggestion. I am prompted to indulge in such comment because it seems to me that in this present time, full of great possibilities for advancement in medical education and practice, nothing will promote sure and rapid progress, and the avoidance of missteps, more certainly than a full and free discussion by all who are in any way related to, or interested in, the subject.The decision of the Council to make its chief function that of co-ordinating the various forces at work among them, the medical schools and their associations, the literary colleges and medical examining boards, can not be too highly commended. It would have been a great mistake at this time to have attempted to force any arbitrary standards by drastic measures,
