" There has been a good deal of criticism of the personnel of the Influenza Epidemic Commission by members of the medical profession and by members of the general public owing to the fact that there is no medical man on the Commission," said Dr. A. B. Pearson, during his lecture to the Christchurcn Workers' Educational Association on Saturday night. " Personally, I think it is the best thing in the world that there" is not a mecKcal man on that Royal Commission. If there were, it is absolutely certain that he would have influenced the opinions of the other two members, whereas, as the Commission is now constituted, it is composed of very excellent and competent gentlemen, whose views are perfectly open, and who will, I am -srire, make_ their finding: in accordance with the evidence before them, without having" their minds influenced in any other way.
