To the Editor:—  In The Journal for March 15, 1965 (191:937-938), the interesting editorial on William T. Sedgwick, the second paragraph in the second column, has this sentence: "He was appointed a member of the Advisory Board of the United States Hygientic Laboratory, the predecessor of the United States Public Health Service." This should have read, "the predecessor of the National Institutes of Health, of the United States Public Health Services.1"This is brought to your attention chiefly to remind you that some of us do read the editorial pages. The Journal under the present editor has set a high standard of excellence for the editorial pages as well as for all other departments.
