The article of Dr. Lovering in this issue raises certain questions which are worthy of serious consideration. If, after forty years of prohibition, the disability from alcoholism in our Navy is seven or eight times greater than in the British and German navies, it might not seem so illogical to advocate the reintroduction of the grog ration or, at least, and probably much better, the beerselling canteen. When, however, as Lovering says, the sentiment in favor of temperance is weak, the officers discourage it by their example and by neglecting to discriminate in matters of promotion and privileges between the man who has proved himself untrustworthy by disabling habits of alcoholism and the temperate man, there would seem to be possibly another remedy to be first tried. If officers themselves are not temperate examples, we have in this alone a serious handicap to any temperance regulations for those below them.
