Too Few Physicians—Hardly.

Too Few Physicians—Hardly. To the Editor. —An article has been going the rounds of the daily press, purporting to be an interview with me, bewailing the prospective scarcity of physicians. No such interview was ever held. The only grounds that could ever have existed for such an article was that while I was talking to another physician, I congratulated the people that good, yes, first-class medical schools would have fewer graduates owing to the fact that preliminary requirements and the standard of teaching had increased to such an extent that numbers would not rush to these colleges as had been, the case before the rise in requirements. It is quality and not quantity that is needed. I have stood for quality all my life. I endorse the sentiment in your editorial.1 "Too few physicians? Hardly."
