To the Editor:  —I have noted with great interest and satisfaction the beginning of a determined effort on the part of the Chicago and some other medical societies, to do away with the salvarsan patent burden. It is a relief, at last, to see the city men taking up a matter which has become an intolerable burden to us all. I hope and pray that this will not prove merely a sporadic effort, but that The Journal and all active medical periodicals as well as every county medical society will make this matter a propaganda which cannot be ignored by Congress.
