To the Editor:—
In the Dec. 30, 1944 issue of The Journal, page 1154, there is an editorial comment on the recent regulation by the Secretary of Labor relating to provision of diagnostic services under state plans for services for crippled children. In view of the fact that the next to the last sentence misinterprets the regulation and implies that the regulation applies to therapeutic as well as to diagnostic services, I would like to request that the following statement issued by the chief of the Children's Bureau on Dec. 26, 1944 to the executive officers of state crippled children's agencies be made available to the readers of The Journal together with this letter. The statement is as follows:
Dec. 26, 1944.To: Executive officers of state crippled children's agencies.From: Katharine F. Lenroot, Chief, Children's Bureau, U. S. Department of Labor.Subject: Issuance of regulation promulgated by Secretary
