To the Editor.—  I trust that those who know Dr Walker1 personally will now rise to the implication that he needs assistance in introspective evaluation and a more realistic assessment of the world around him. He is already in trouble and faces more difficulties in the future.I refer him to "An Experience in Learning" by Dr R. D. Pruitt, presented during his commencement address at the Mayo Clinic (Mayo Clinic Proceedings, March 1985), wherein Pruitt states, "At the heart of more than a few great universities resides the credo that its students are learners and to this process the students themselves must contribute."The provocative title given the piece— "The Harvard Way" —should remind those who are fortunate enough to learn at that university that they have a rare opportunity for association with some of the foremost people in our profession.
