Chicago, Feb. 10, 1900.
To the Editor:
—The Association of American Medical Colleges ought to sustain the regular classical and scientific courses of the university and under no circumstances encourage students to leave the university to begin professional study before graduating. If the college curriculum is not worth while to the student, it is a matter for the university authorities to correct. The judicial council has lately passed the following judgment in relation to the application of one of these universities.
ANSWER TO INTERROGATORIES PROPOUNDED BY THE WEST VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY.
The Judicial Council of the Association of American Medical Colleges assumes that the premedical course is provided for students who contemplate studying medicine. The subjects announced for the premedical course being included with those studies leading to the bachelor's degree would entitle the graduates of the West Virginia University to enter the second year's course in a regular medical school.
