A letter from Gen. T. S. Hammond, Executive Director, Blue Eagle Division of the National Recovery Administration, published elsewhere in this issue,1 expresses his regret that recent editorials in The Journal have indicated "a misunderstanding of the National Recovery Administration's policy toward doctors and dentists." The headquarters personnel of the American Medical Association has studied the National Industrial Recovery Act ever since it was introduced in Congress. It has also studied the President's Reemployment Agreement. The act is, by its terms, clearly limited to trades and industries. It is not applicable to the professions, except as they are integral parts of trades and industries, and the private practice of medicine does not come within that category. If Congress had intended the act to cover the professions, it easily could and presumably would have said so.

The phraseology of the President's Reemployment Agreement with respect to the professions is ambiguous.
