Wisdom in Globules



News-Commentary, Drollery


Homeopathy, Universities

    Following news of a proposal to introduce 'homeopathic chairs' into Belgian universities, predicts the minute size of such chairs and points out that 'Everything else would have to be reduced in equal proportion' until the wisdom acquired at the universities becomes so small that nobody will want it. Adds that many of the author's 'medical friends' will be pleased to hear that the 'chairs' (proposals) were not 'carried'.
