To the Editor:—  I would like to ask George X. Trimble, MD, a serious question. How can a philogist writing appositely about phylogeny vs phyllogeny (194:236, 1965) overlook philogyny? Can it be he's not?Orchids, of the phyllogenous variety, to Dr. Walworth for reminding us that "unto the man is a woman." As one who admits to philodemic beliefs and to being a philogeant, I must of necessity confess to philogynous traits. Philogynist, yes. Philogist, no. Philanderer, No.A confirmed bachelor, such as I, though blessed with philogynic inclinations must nevertheless plead mobility and agility to explain his non-nubility.
