In order to extend the usefulness of these clinics in combating the sprcad of the venereal diseases, a specially trained physician has been appointed to act as Medical Adviser” to the patients attending the clinic. Under no circumstances will he treat cases. 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 obeying the directions of their physicians. Upon request, the "Medical Advise" will also instruct the patient regarding the nature of venereal infections

, their mode of spread, 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 diseases now exist. It is apparent that this objection is based on a complete misunder

: standing of the diagnostic function of the clinic, and the duties of the “Medical Adviser. From what has been said it will be clear that not only will the medica advice given in no way interiere with the legitimate work of private physicians and dispensaries, but that it will materially aid them in successfully treating their patients.
