                         III.

   THE NEGRO  PROBLEM FROM  A  PHYSICIAN'S
                   STANDPOINT.

               IT is in no sense my intention to at-
                 tempt a survey  of  the wide  field
                 through which Dr. DuBois has led
                 you in the splendid presentation he
                 has made of this many-sided Negro
                 problem.  I shall content myself, dur-
                 ing the brief time allotted to me, with
only a few observations on that particular phase of the
question that has come before me most frequently, in
the course of a professional life extending over fifteen
years among the Negro population of two typical Amer-
ican cities--Chicago and Washington.  Dr. DuBois has
dwelt with special and pertinent emphasis upon the im-
portance of absolute accuracy in the statistics with
which we deal, in any attempt to arrive at definite con-
clusions with regard to peoples in general, and  the
Negro in particular.  This fact cannot be too firmly im-
pressed upon our attention.
  We are here attempting a scientific inquiry into con-
ditions, causes and results; and science makes no terms
with sentiment; truth, no compromise with error.
  First of all, we want the truth. No structure can be
reared strong enough to stand permanently on an un-
stable foundation
