It is of course possible that homeopathic physicians were scrutinized with special care before they were commissioned in the army so that they were thus more carefully selected than the "regulars." The homeopathic group shows the same superiority in the matter of earnings, though this may be partly accounted for by its greater experience. The eclectic group reports lower earnings than the regulars, but this may be accounted for by its relative lack of experience (table 42).
Distribution of alpha scores of graduates from schools of different medical sects
Eight schools are represented by more than 75 graduates each. These groups are considered large enough to yield fairly reliable statistical information. Ten additional schools are represented by from 35 to 60 graduates. The information for these schools, although less reliable, is worthy of presentation. Table 43 gives, for each of these 18 schools, the number of graduates by which

It is not surprising to find that a few schools are seemingly of outstanding excellence. There are, for example, among these 18 medical schools 5 which rank exceptionally high in intelligence of graduates. These 5 constitute two groups, the first of which comprises the Johns Hopkins Medical School and the Medical School of Harvard University, and the second, somewhat lower in intelligence of graduates, the College of Physicians and Surgeons
