To the Editor:  —The forced resignation of H. W. Wiley calls for energetic and universal protests from the medical profession. The investigation of the Moss committee shows precisely where the focus of iniquity is located and whence is spread the infectious virus which permeates the entire department under which Wiley worked. This department is in need of complete regeneration from top to bottom.

W. Wiley. Our county societies should bestir themselves and pass resolutions to the same effect, copies of which should be forwarded to the President and to every United States senator
