ABSTRACT

Dr. Simon Flexner, director of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, has replied through the columns of the New York Times to the sensational articles recently published in the New York Herald, alleging that needless and uncalled for cruelties were inflicted on animals in the institute. To those who have followed the admirable work of the Rockefeller Institute, no vindication is necessary. The absurdity of supposing that men of the highest scientific attainments, recognized for their learning and culture both in this country and Europe, would devote weeks of time and would derive insane enjoyment from the needless torturing of animals, as was practically charged, is apparent to every one except the hopeless fanatic or the well-meaning but undiscriminating sentimentalist, who is not mentally capable of being guided by either common sense or ordinary evidence. Dr. Flexner's statement is given in full in General News and Comment in this issue.
