To the Editor:—
In an editorial on page 894 in the Oct. 30, 1954, issue of The Journal, I note that a competitive company's benzathine penicillin G is mentioned by brand name in such a way as to imply that no other company supplies this preparation. We believe that, by neglecting to give more than the one brand name, the editorial will serve to promote the brand mentioned to the detriment of other manufacturers' brands. Our brand of benzathine penicillin G (Permapen), for example, has been Council-accepted for at least as long as the brand named in the editorial.
