My Dear Macleod :-
I have Just heard from
Calgary that the medical mnen in
Alberta are going to push to have
Parliament vote Collip an anrual
grant for life, Just as Banting was.
If they do, they will get behind
thom a great many of the Vestern
members of Parliamenert, who will be
caught with the cry that the East is
grabbing all the credit and all the
wherewithal from Parliament that can
be given for the Insulin work. I do
not thinft that yoa are implicated at
all, for it appears that they think
that so far as the division of your
share of the Iobel prize is concerned
yvu have done the right thing, but
they will, undoubtedly, expect you to
say something in Collip's favour when
this momement gathers head. I fancy
Dr. Tory, the Principal of Alberta,
is not at all unwilling that such a
movement should be promoted.
It seens as if there is to be
no end to trouble from this source.
By the way, I definitely
heard that the editorial article from
the Montreal Standard which I showed
