To the Editor:—
In The Journal for March 31, page 867, there is a statement relative to affairs in South Carolina which misrepresents the situation rather seriously and I beg you to publish this correction.The commissioners of the Roper Hospital have not opposed the expansion program of the medical college except as far as the building of a large hospital is concerned, feeling that the addition to the Roper Hospital now under construction would furnish the facilities needed for larger classes. The commissioners were authorized by the medical society to give full publicity to their proposal and they thought they were carrying out the expressed wishes of the society in acting as they did. The society had at no time approved the program in toto but only in principle, and the commissioners expressed definitely their approval of expanding the teaching facilities of the college and their willingness to cooperate.
