Financial loss has been found to total

An audience, composed chiefly ' of
medical men, at the Lincoln High
School last night was told by Major
Franklin Martin, member of the ad
visory commission of the National
Council of Defense, that the services
of every physician and surgeon, under
55 years of age, who was not physically
unfit or absolutely required as teacher
in a medical school or as an employe
In some of the emergency war-time
industries, would be required in either
the Army or Navy branches of the Gov
ernment before the war ends. The
meeting was held under the auspices of
the State Council of Defense.
"In the last three months. 6000 med
ical men have been provided for active
service with the Government and an
other 2000 are desired before January
1." said Major Martin. "There are to
day 21,000 medical men In uniform, or
more than 20 per cent of the medical
profession. If the male population of
the country were enrolled In the same
proportion we would have an army of
Many Physicians Xeeded.
"It is now proposed to increase to
40,000 the number of medical men in
the United States service. This will
mean that every physician and surgeon
under 55 years of age. whose services
are not absolutely indispensable, either
as Instructor or as employe In some
war-time Industry, roust enroll for
service. This enrollment will be made
under two classifications, namely, the
Medical Reserve Corps, which will in
clude men In khaki ready for active
military service, and the Volunteer
Service Corps, whose members will
wear the insignia Indicating a willingness-
to serve. Thts plan will serve
to single out the slacker. Every medi
cal man must be enrolled In one of the
two classifications in order to escape
suspicion of being a slacker."
Major Martin reminded his medical
friends in the audience that not a phy
sician or surgeon had been graduated
in France since the war began four
years ago. In England, he said, the
number of doctors that had been grad
uated did not equal 10 per cent of the
Docf era TJraed to Art,
"Consequently," he deducted, "it de

the United States not only to perform
the work It Is called upon to perform
but to double the output of the medical
schools at the same time. For this war

never hear any one speak of the 'end
of the war.' On the other hand, con
tracts In nearly every Instance in con
nection with war needs are entered into
for periods of at least two years.
A detailed explanation was given by
Major Martin of the plan upon which
the medical profession of the country
was organized. With the medical board
of the National Council of Defense as
the official head, there are three sur
geon-generals, heading respectively the
Army, the Navy and the public health.
The organization is under the direction
of 85 of the leading physicians of the
country. The central board brings about
the co-ordination of the work of civilian
doctors and meets and consults with
the members of the President's cabinet.
