To the Editor:
—The government has taken over the military control of the medical schools, enlisted the students, and has agreed to pay their tuition fee, their board, and $30 a month. I understand that now that peace is in view the government is going to give this up, which is all right, but the students expect to have this year's teachings under the above terms, and now are not prepared to suddenly pay the expense for the balance of the term. So it seems to me that the government, even if it gives up the military control of all schools ought to carry out at least the financial agreement with the students until the end of the year. Not to do this would be a great injustice to some of the poorer students.
