THE LAST CHAPTER IN
THE "FLIT CONTROVERSY
To the Editor:
May I trespass again on your
good nature in order to correct some
statements made in Dr. Nlbley'a ar
ticle ot December 6. My good friend
Dr. Nibley seems all "het up" over
the influenza situation, or is he mak
ing use of the influenza as camou
flage to make a dirty personal at
tack on me? .
The article written, by myself and
appearing in Thursday's Courier
was correct in practically every par
ticular as would my other article
have been had 'Dr. Nibley not taken
the liberty to "correct it." Dr. Nib
ley says "and we all know what the
Burgeon general did to Dr. Smith's
attempt to stimulate his country
practice by opening the schools be
fore the flu was under control," evi
dently we dont all know for the very
good reason that Dr. Smith made no
such attempt and the surgeon gen
eral did nothing to him, and such a
report, if there was one, evidently
came from a fevered or disordered
The charge that I have been draw
ing a salary from the county illegally
is absolutely, false as Dr. Nibley
very well knows if . he knows any
thing. I have not had time to look up the
case cited and not being able to em
ploy a legal adviser I presume it re
fers to a case where a person draws
two salaries at the same time, hold
ing two offices considered lucrative,
as for instance in some places he
may hold the office as city health of
ficer and county physician at the
same time and draw a salary for
each office, as I say I have no legal
adviser and as Dr. Nibley evidently
has, I trust he will have him look
the case up. The claim that their
drugs are purer and their Instru
ments are the finest is the stock
in-trade claim of quacks. I have
never known a legitimate physician
advance any such claim. The large
number of persons given the serum
treatment free by Dr. Nibley speaks
volumns for kindly and altrustlc dis
position. . Of course he draws 30
per month for treating county
charges.., ... ,

as I am concerned Now let ' the

earnestly asked to attend as the

than six allotments to be filled as

superintendent ot the t Red .Cross

filled as peace does hot mean a ces

rather more work, because of 'the
great need of the refugees.
