To the Editor:—
In regard to a Current Comment, The Journal, February 19, page 531, in addition to your observation concerning letterheads, you may be interested to know that even lantern slides made and issued by the National Cancer Institute for distribution throughout the United States in the fields of professional and lay education are stamped, at the bottom, so that all can read F. S. A.In all innocence, during a preview of some of these slides which I saw at the National Cancer Institute, I inquired what F. S. A. meant. I was told it meant "Federal Security Agency," and then I asked why it wasn't N. C. I., National Cancer Institute. The answer was simply "Orders."
