To the Editor:—  I found Dr. Lester King's article, "Do-It-Yourself Medicine" (200:23, 1967) most entertaining. On page 26 he stated, "The prices varied from 121/2 cents an ounce for some medications, up to $2 a pound for the most expensive."Well, 16 times 121/2 cents makes $2 exactly, and 16 ounces still make 1 pound. Evidently, the more prices vary, the more they remain the same.
