[The above correspondence was referred to Drs. Carlson and Woelfel, who reply:]
To the Editor:
—Our reply to such a proposal might well have been anticipated by Dr. Crile. It seems to us that Dr. Crile before making such a proposal should publish the laboratory and clinical data purporting to substantiate the theory. What sort of a "debate" would that be in which most of the evidence is accessible to one side only? Let Dr. Crile publish his "clinical cases"—especially since he is of the opinion that the validity of the theory must be proved or disproved in the clinics—and all his laboratory data relating to the theory, in such form that one can judge their cogency as evidence and let the essential and new facts be confirmed by others. Such a discussion might be useful.
