To the Editor:  —I read with interest the article on "The Postoperative Control of Distention, Nausea and Vomiting" by Dr. Paine et al. in the June 17 issue of The Journal.In April, 1923, I published an article (Surgery, Gynecology and Obstetrics, pp. 572-573) representing a similar experiment. I had tried the tube both nasally and by mouth. As I had some cases that should keep the tube in for several days, I found that it was better by mouth. Since the writing of this article, I have used the tube in many cases with excellent results.I think that these writers should be complimented for their exacting work and their calling attention to the use of the nasal catheter suction siphonage.
