To the Editor:
—Nothing is further from the intention of this commission than to attempt to influence the editorial or advertising policy of any publication, but it is believed that an effort should be made to secure the general use of the new official names in connection with the drugs, licenses to manufacture which have been granted by this commission. To this end we suggest that The Journal of the American Medical Association (if such course meets its approval) use the official names "Arsphenamine," "Procaine," "Barbital," etc., in connection with all advertisements of the products and all articles in which they are referred to.
