V. y. Vivo.Medicine and Eugenics.399 
Since the future doctors must of necessity be the chief agents in eugenic 
propaganda, it is very important that they be imbued with its ideals and 
carefully trained in its principles at the very time when they are most 
susceptible to influences which appeal to young manhood. It would 
almost seem that the very future of the race lies in the hands of the 
coming physicians. Their influence will largely help shape racial conduct 
and determine the slow or speedy coming of a society living its life 
according to eugenic principles. 
The full attainment of the ideal may be a coincidence of utopia; 
nevertheless physicians will be more efficient public servants if they 
approach their work with a eugenic outlook on life; hence for still a third 
reason the science of eugenics deserves a place in the medical curriculum.
