Doctors Accused From S;uit;i Ana, Cal., recently came the shocking ensure that 24 doctors in that city hud refused to answer a call to treat a dying man. Such charges can be, and sometimes are, made when the facts do not merit the accusation but in this instance it appears that firemen in that city were called in to render such assistance aa they coilld give with the department's pulmotor in treating the victim of a heart attack. Newsmen in Santa Ana Quoted the chief of the city's fire department as the authority for the statement that 24 ' doctors were called and each and every one had reasons of his own for not going to the aid of a dying man—and one of the pledges a doctor makes befure obtaining a license is that he will respond to calls from the sick regardless of their financial standing. Some of the reasons for failure to aid the dying man in Snnta Ana were: Some said they .were too busy; that the doctors themselves were sick, and another that he 'had to operate in the morning.' Doctors on the home front during: the war wore subjected to severe pressure and overworked. By and large they did an excellent job, and it can be said of them that they responded at times when refusals would have been justified on the grounds of sheer exhaustion. But the war is over, and the number of refusals claimed in Santa Ana is beyond comprehension of the average layman. Th« secretary of the California county's medical association has promised an investigation of the refusals by the 24 doctors to respond to the call. He added to the gravity of the fire chief's charge when he said (hat it is a doctor's duty, when he cannot accept a call, to assist in finding a fellow practitioner who can and will. The Santa An a doctors have given the profession a black mark. We hope that it can be removed for their profession is a noble one. The charge offers a challenge to doctors everywhere to do more than remove the black mark of the Santa Ana incident. They can and we believe will, go the second mile and set an example which will encourage others in other professions, in business and in the ranks of labor to live by the Golden Rule. The Doctors' Dilemma The Washington doctors are spending a lot of time arguing whether llieir badly-inflated patient should have three,-four, or ten kinds of medicine. Anxious relatives at the bedside might feel less anxious if they were sure that the doctors are discussing remedies that will really get at the cause of the disease, and not just its symptoms. ot lhe faculty—who should b« better able to distinguish between, scholarly objectivity and •ubverslva propaganda than would a panel at nou-academlc citizen*. The trustees bound this commute* by no avbilrary definitions of «iib- v«r«lv« or un-American." The University apparently reflect* the conservatism of the western rancher—then have been no lefllah student "movements," It could well be that the trustees and the president are simply getting set with an answer for my witch hunt which might be brewing. But no such Incident as tills can be taken by itself, it mint be conjldered In a national context which former Secretary of State James F. Byrnes recently Indicated In his phrase "a sUte of mind at times bordering on hyisterja," In that context Wyoming sets a dangerous precedent. Today It Is not enough to condemn this textbook-searching In the name oj academic freedom and let (t go at that. Many sincere citizens are not wholly clear as to what academic freedom really means, Whit Is true academic freedom? It is certainly not a right conferred upon a teacher to Indoctrinate his student audience (which Is not wholly ficc to walk out on him) with his own personal doctrines—political, economic, social, or othei. It Is the riant and the duty of those charged with education at the college level to throw light on all sides of a question, no matter how controversial, and to lead students to Inspect their own viewpoints critically and those of others calmly, it is the right and duly to question things as they are for the purpow ot finding clues to a ueller way, even though that questioning may tread on some sensitive toes. Any American who doubts the soundness of this process doubts also the very foundations ot the freedoms which he enjoys. For self-criticism and the rejection of nulhoriUirmnsm In javor of liberated individual thinking and inquiry lie at the heart of the Renaissance and the Reformation, the great movements from which Western Democracy sprang. The danger In this textbook Inspection stems from the fact that those whu usually press for some form ol thought-police and Insist on carrying It out are the very ones who have the least faith In the corrective power of free discussion, and the most assurance that their own opinions represent a final definition of Americanism A reader of tills newspaper wrote not lonn ago: Most of our colleges nnd universities need Army officers as presidents ... to get them back In line with our theories ot democracy «nd the Ideals of our country . . . Frankly, i do distrust the process of education In a democracy unless it Is controlled. . . . This is an extreme dictum, to be sure. But It typifies a kind ot Unnhlng ivhicli lend' us to warn that the purging of a little subversive- ness—If there be any of the real variety—from college booltn Is hnrdly worth what It might cost the principles that make Americans free. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR, BARBS The optimist reads "no" from left to right, backwards and forwards. » • m A spider's web has no commercial value, says a sclentlit.
