lest of attehtlon. ' But the doctors
do not speak as they pass by, and'the
situation is strained, to say the least.
The situation j8 the result of a
three-cornered discussion in which
1 he various schools of veterinary sur
gery, figured to a considerable ex
tent. Dr. Vans' Agnew, being senior
of the other two, wanted the horses
doctored according to his ideas,
which, in turn, didn't fit in with the
ideas of the regimental commander.
Dr. Haynes and Dr. Willyourig had
ideas of their own, which didn't agree
with those of each other or those of
Dr. Vans Agnew. Charges of insub
ordination were first preferred
against Vt. Vans Agnew, fcut this did
not quiet the troubled waters, and
the situation finally became so acute
that the other two found themselves
in a similar box.
