Special Courses at Hot Springs.
—The Surgeon General, U. S. Public Health Service, announces that special courses in the control and treatment of venereal disease will be given at the venereal disease clinic of the public health service at Hot Springs for physicians, clinicians and health officers. There will be no fees charged for the course but the individual physician will necessarily pay his own expenses for living and travel. The classes will be held in the new building in which the clinic is operated, where, last year, 3,570 indigent persons were examined and 3,064 cases of syphilis and gonorrhea diagnosed. There are exceptional facilities for the study of venereal disease, especially in diagnosis, treatment and clinic management.
