The editors of the American Journal of Diseases of Children have received a storm of letters vigorously protesting an editorial which appeared under the above title in the August, 1963, issue. As was stated in an editorial in the October issue, the personal opinions expressed by Dr. W. C. Black are not shared by the editors and are in opposition to the statements of the American Medical Association and the American Dental Association. So strongly do the editors disagree with Dr. Black's opinion that they have elected to publish several of the letters that have been received opposing the statements of Dr. Black:

Lester W. Burket, MD

Samuel J. Fomon, MD

H. L. Blum, MD

J. Carroll Chambers, MD

George Heller, MD

Richard Feuerstein, MD

David A. Soricelli, DDS

Roscoe P. Kandle, MD

Additional letters not previously recorded have been received from A. P. Rosen, MD; H. L. Blum, MD;
