California and Western Medicine for August 1943 takes to task the action of the federal Children's Bureau in providing payment for the obstetric care of the wives of enlisted men and for the care of their children; objection is not made to the payment or to the care but to the technic and rate of payment. Incidentally, the editorial in California and Western Medicine asks why the "national mouthpiece of organized medicine" has made no editorial comment and calls attention to what are said to be the only two items on the subject which appeared in The Journal. Elsewhere in this issue (Organization Section, page 1257) appears some of the correspondence on the subject between Dr. George H. Kress, Secretary-Editor of the California Medical Association, and Dr. Olin West, Secretary of the American Medical Association.1
The readers of California and Western Medicine should have the accurate information here published.
