Elsewhere in The Journal are an abstract of the Proceedings of the House of Delegates and a review of some of the other activities at the recent annual session of the American Medical Association. This meeting, which was held in Atlantic City, was attended by approximately 12,000 physicians, who, with their families, helped swell the total registered attendance to more than 32,000.
