Considerations Governing Location of Physicians in California.—  With the approval of the Council of the California Medical Association, the state chairman for the physicians Procurement and Assignment Service, Dr. Harold A. Fletcher, San Francisco, has sent to the chairmen of all county committees on Procurement and Assignment Service and to the secretaries of all county medical societies a proposal for aiding resumption of private practice by physicians who were formerly in California. The policies have been developed on the assumption that every physician in California who served in the military forces deserves protection and help in becoming reestablished in his former location. It assumes further that, "until these men have had an opportunity to return to their former locations, every effort should be made to keep new physicians from locating in those places where their presence might seriously disturb the rehabilitation of the physician not yet released."
