To the Editor:—
I should like to call attention to the item on page 1062 of the Nov. 10, 1956, issue of The Journal that the Community Council of Greater New York announced the launching of a complementary mental health study as part of its three-year school health survey. The council issued a release this past spring that it was considering such a study at the time that it announced the appointment of Dr. Ray E. Trussell as chairman of the survey's advisory committee. No statement was ever made that the mental health phase was in fact established as part of the survey. After preliminary study and consultation with the survey sponsors, decision was made to postpone the mental health study, although a design therefor was developed. At present, therefore, no such investigation is in active planning. The basic survey is continuing as planned.
