Several of tlie professors of tlie medical department feel that their "professional honah" has been smirched, and they are lustily calling for .somebody to inquire into it. It seems that Dr. D. A. Joy, assistant In the university to Prof. J. V. Langley, lias invented an electric belt, and some of the professors signed a statement to the effect that the sald belt would produce a mild current of electrieity. This statement is given prominence - aoiong others -in a pamphlet issued by the. manufacturera of the belt, a Chicago lirin, we believe. And now the doctors and medical professors generally have aceused these professors and tnembers of the faculty of the medical department of the university of Michigan, of making a horrible breach in their professional dignity and honor ia reconimending an "irregular" remedy. The cominon people, while quite generally believing that the natues of the professors in our university should not be given to further the sale of deleterious or quack remedies, see no reason why a doctor may not recoinmend a valuable remedy the same as a professor iu the literary or law department may recommend certain text-books or litterary works, as they often do. Tlis "hullabaloo" and request for investigation looks much like straining at a gnat and "swallowing a camel." The following is the request of the professors: Unjvïrsity of Michigan. Ann Arbor, Mich., Sept. 12th, 1881. To thi Hon. Board of Regents- The undereigued, members of faculty of the college of medicine and surgery beg leave to ntute that the Interest of college and the unlverslly huve Krent iian'ger "of'becoralngJmatrlajiy""liiju"rêd by tlie appearauce of a disgracefully publfcatlon sent forth over the country and made to appear to have the sanctlon of the university; and, In fact. to have orlglnated from It. Au unauthorlzed use of the siiitemen is of members of the faculty has comproinlsed their professional honor and standing, and they are publlcly aceused of compllcacy wlth a production calculated and lntended todecel ve the public and dlggrace the colloge.
