To the Editor:  —In The Journal, April 6, under this title, Joseph W. Sooy, Baltimore, states that A. C. E. bandages in his experience with the treatment of varicose veins and leg ulcers were "of no value whatever." Why single out this special bandage from the many of domestic and foreign manufacture? Dr. Sooy's modified Unna paste bandage may be a valuable find and be widely used. But is this to be the last word in the proper therapy of leg ulcers, unhealed, secondary burns and various types of unhealed lesions from various causes? Already he has modified, changed and altered his original technic to meet intelligent criticisms, faults and failings. Why be so hypercritical of one bandage?
