VmSECTION VINDICATED? TO THE EDITOR. Sir,âI was surprised to read in the last issue of your contemporary, the "Observer," that at, a recent Chester anti-vivisection meeting an indi- vidual described as an "Assistant Director of Education for Cheshire," attempted to defend the practice of vivisection. I should like to inquire firstly, whether a per- son holding such views is a fit person to supervise the instruction of the young; and secondly, whether the County Council Education Commit- tee approve of their servant's taking up a posi- tion at a public meeting in opposition to the views of a large section of the public, by whom he is paidâand, if not, what cognizance they pro- pose to take of the matter.âYours obediently. "RATEPAYER," TO THE EDITOR. r,ir.-In the. reports of a meeting of anti-vivi- soctionists, recently held in Chester, it is stated that an Assistant Director of Education cham- pioned the utility of experiments on dumb animals. This is very unfortunate. The As- sistant Director has a perfect right to his own opinions; but ho ought to consider tho effect of hia words on young minds before expressing them. There are medical men and scientists of high repute who have condemned experiments of this description as brutal and unnecessary. All theso eminent people cannot be "liars." The mere fact that doctors disagree shews an element of doubt as to their benefit, but as lÃJ the c-ruelty inflicted humane people have no two opinions on the matter. If children think that cruelty in doctors i« con- doned. how can tea-ohere impress upon,them the necessity of treating these dumb friends of man with kindness, especially when one who assdste in the direction of the education of the county thinks that the experiments are necessary t But as the conduct of the person in question is a matter for the Education Committee, I f/hall re- main content with drawing youir attention to it. eeR.
