Columbus, Ohio, Sept. 4, 1906.
To the Editor:
—In the statistics published in the Educational Number of The Journal, Aug. 25, 1906, we note some errors that affect the standing of the Ohio Medical University.In Table A, "Physicians Examined by the State Boards During the Calendar Year 1905," the Ohio Medical University is credited with three examinations in West Virginia, with one failure. The facts are, two graduates were examined there in 1905 and both passed. Joseph Nathan Freilich, who had been a student and failed of graduation, session 1904-05, registered as a graduate and failed to pass the examination.In the same table the Ohio Medical University is credited with two failures in Ohio. The only basis for this is that two of our graduates who took the examination were refused certificates for an alleged infraction of the rules. Their papers graded respectively 89 and 84 per cent.
