To the Editor:  —I read your editorial in The Journal, October 8, with interest and approval, but I could wish that you might later call attention to the fact that physicians themselves may not ethically make contracts based on their reputations and "farm" out the jobs on a percentage of returns.Women of easy virtue have been known in their later years to employ younger and more attractive girls who prostitute on a percentage basis. Prostitution, unfortunately, is not confined to social delinquency. The prostitution of an honored profession is quite as distasteful to the virtuous and ethical as our social leaders find the selling of women.I know your views are right and therefore do not hesitate to commend them.
