STIT DEPLORES UCKJFOOCTORS Admiral Asserts Inducements Offered by Navy Fail to Attract. By the Associated Press. Graduates of medical, dental and pharmaceutical colleges and of nurses’ training schools are finding the opportunities of civil life so at tractive that the medical department of the Navy in having increased dif ficulty in getting suitably trained personnel for its work Surgeon General E. K. Stitt, in his annual re port made public today, declares that, despite an intensive campaign during the year, including the send ing of 12.000 personal letters to young doctors, it was not possible to keep the Medical Corps up to its authorized strength. “It is apparent/’ Dr. tstitt said, that the inducements offered by the Navy are not sufficient to attract the young physician. It seems, there fore. that some legislative action will he necessary in the near future if the Medical Corps of the Navy is to be recruited up to the strength for which appropriation was made by Congress, or even if the vacancies occasioned by resignation, retirement and death are to be filled.” Health conditions generally in the Navy during the fiscal year were “It seems certain,” the report said. The death rate of 3.23 per 1,000 was “the lowest the Navy ever had," and admissions to the sick list also wore unsually low. During the year care of the Navy and Marine Corps dead in France was transferred to the permanent ••are of the Army, with 217 marine dead, and 23 Navy men still carried as unidentified or nnlocated. "it seems certain.” the report said, "that the time must soon come j when, despite all the effprts and re search. a certain number of bodies now carried as ’unidentified.’ must be j declared ’unknown.’ and those .‘un- j located’ as ‘missing.’ ” COOLIDGE HONORS EX-BANKER NEW YORK, December 26.—8.
