In the August 1975 issue, lines 21 and 22 of column 2 on page 288 should have read: ". . . hypercalcemia" is indicated as preferred in American usage to "hypercalcinuria."
To the editor: I suspect that your problems in copy editing are not yet solved. Why in the world would hypercalcemia be "indicated as preferred in American usage to" hypercalcinuria? It is one thing to insert an extra "n" in making neologisms. It is quite another thing to convert urine into blood.
