In order to extend the usefulness of these clinics in combating the spread of the venereal diseases, a specially trained physician has been appointed to act as "Medica] Adviser" to the patients attending the clinic. Under no circumstances will he treat cas. . His duties consist in advising patients as to the nature of the disease, the necessity of proper medical care, the dangers of self-treatment, and the importance of cbeving the directions of their physicians. Upon request, the “Medical Adviser" will also instruct the patient regarding the nature of venereal infections, their mode of spaad, ordinary course, complications and far-reaching effects and in various questions of sexual hygiene.

The estab'ishment of these venereal clinics has been disapproved by some physicians on the ground that ample facilities for the free treatment of venereal diseaxs now exist. It is apparent that this objection is based on a complete misunderstanding of the diagnostic function of the clinic, and the duties of the "Medical Adviser." From what tas been said it will be clear that not only will the medical advice giren ir no way in Tiere with the legitimate work of private physicians and dispensaries, but that it will materially aid them in successfully treating their patients
