Intervlewa of the inspectors wlth many
of the practitionets indlcated that they
knew they were violatlng the law and
were treadlng on riangeroua ground. In
Chicago an lnspector called on a physl
cian after havlng reteived from him a
raopoBea by aoatl ta hia deeoy letter. Tbe
Uaopoctor prufessed a d?sire to cngage tbe
doctoi's aervloaa, The doctor wa? cau
tlous. and asked tbe lnspector to show tho
latter. lt waa la tbe physlclana own
The doctor snatched the letter from the
inspector's hand. tore it twlce acro?s and
threw it into tbe wa3tebasket. The ln?
spector returned to the ofHce, in the tem
porary absence of the doctor. secured the
strips from the basket and pasted them
together. That letter eonatitutes an lm
tortant hnk ln the chain of evidence on
whlch that dector was lndicted.

interviewed a suspected phys'.cian in a
Texas clty. The doctor could not be ln
dllCBd to commtt himself. Then the
rollor. ta apparent deapair. began te
weep copiously. The doctor patted him
on the back and bad soothIngly:
"Now, my boy, that* all rlght. My
ietter to yoi ls clear eno.igh You know,
we have to be very careful to guard
against these postul people, who are con

He then gave the weepin* visitor all the
OfHanoe he needed to coniplete feta casi.
ln another caae the inspectors worked
for montha on a case before they ol>

nating letters were received from tha
auapected POTBOB, but all were mailed on

the jurisdlction of the inapectora had to
be deteimined posltively. and that could
not be done through lettere mailed on
