To the Editors of The Crimson:

Though I am most reluctant to keep alive the furor over my recent article on standards in medical education, I must rebut any specific misstatement attributed to me that seems to support the charge of racism and to harm the black community. I would therefore note that in an article last week Judith Kogan quoted from my publication "It is cruel to admit students who have a very low probability of measuring up to reasonable standards." Unfortunately she omitted quotation marks and inserted "minority" before "students."

I have publicly apologized for my share in the errors that have tragically cast a shadow on the many excellent minority medical students and physicians with well earned credentials. The Crimson may wish to consider an apology for its share. Dr. Bernard D. Davis '36   Lehman Professor of Bacterial Physiology
