Jackson, Mich., Dec. 17, 1906.
To the Editor:
—Through the medium of The Journal I should like to secure information regarding the appointment of members to local boards of health on the recommendation of the county societies or similar medical organizations. The inefficiency and dishonesty of boards appointed through political favor is so notorious that it behooves the profession to take this matter up for serious consideration, as a means of protecting both the public and themselves.If any of the readers of The Journal know of such an arrangement as mentioned above I shall be greatly indebted for information as to methods and results.
