To the Editor:—  Thirty vacant fields for medical men and twenty-two for medical women, with no competition and unlimited opportunities for original research, have been brought to my attention by various missionary societies. Some hospitals have had to be closed for lack of workers.For men with pioneer instincts, there are great fields entirely unoccupied, while for expert surgeons there is work at hand which is already self-supporting. Several internships, from one to three years, are also open for recent graduates.For women to whom the experience of Dr. Susie Rijnhart, of Thibet, appeals, there are great fields entirely unoccupied, while for experienced surgeons there are hospitals waiting.All this work is under the missionary societies of the various Protestant churches of the United States and Canada.The Work requires men and women of good health and rugged constitution, not over 35 years of age, graduates of first-class medical schools
