Louisville, Ky., Sept. 5, 1898.
To the Editor:
—In the Journal of September 3, page 337, Dr. T. J. Happel, ex-vice-president of the American Medical Association, says: "After carefully reading the notices sent out by Dr. Wm. B. Atkinson to the deans of the several colleges in the United States, I am satisfied that the Association has attempted to reach a point which it should attain, in an unconstitutional manner. Had this point of order been made against the resolution at the time it was offered, as the presiding officer of the Association on that day, I would have decided the point well taken, and have ruled it out of order."Dr. Happel presided on Wednesday, at the time the resolutions were offered. He referred them to the business committee. On Thursday the business committee recommended their adoption; Dr. Happel, again presiding, put the question, and decided the resolutions unanimously
