The Medical View

"As a danger to the public health, as a peril to the family, and as a menace to the vitality, health, and physical progress of the race, the venereal diseases are justly regarded as the greatest of modern plagues."

—Milton J. Rosenau, M. D.

 

The Rational View

"The present medical opinion of venereal diseases is an infinitely greater curse to the world than will be all the diseases of mankind when they are understood and treated properly."

—J. H. Tilden, M. D.
