—I had almost forgotten a disturbing article published in the January, 1961, Archives of Ophthalmology when I read "The Pathologists Again" in the July, 1961, issue, in which the following statement seemed to create a calling to speak up. "Perhaps no other group recaptures more effectively the spirit of give and take which has all but yielded to the necessary formality of larger meetings." Further along in this same article appeared the following: "But it was electron microscopy of the choroid, pigment epithelium, and retina that received the most time and attention." "... electron microscopy... has disclosed intricacies of structure... that are nothing short of marvelous."These are wonderful and stimulating words, and I wish I knew more about electron microscopy, yet at the risk of being "microtomed" by pathologists I would like to insert a note of caution "not to overlook the forest for the trees."Undoubtedly
