populations can be met by scientific planning
and complete co-operation without any de-

of the American Medical association.
War is making heavy demands on Ameri-
can medicine. Thousands of doctors are be-
ing called to duty with the military forces.
Other thousands are giving a part of their
time to selective service boards and other
agencies. But despite this, we feel sure that
American medicine will meet the crisis with
Nowhere else in the world are doctors
given such rigorous training. Nowhere else in
the world are there so many doctors. No-

try. He lives a longer, happier life. And you
can give American medicine credit for that.
Those who guard this nation's health are
doing a magnificent job-and they are ready
for all eventualities.
