Functions of the Danish Medical Association.
—In preparation for the meeting of the Danish Medical Association on Aug. 30, 1952, its central committee issued an annual report on its numerous activities. This report gives an impressive bird's-eye view of what the association does for its members. Its activities range from important negotiations on matters of principle to settling lesser problems. In the former category is the plan for the association to become its own firm of publishers, with the printing of doctorate theses, textbooks, and other works as a source of income for the association and a means of economy for its members. But in view of the complexity of the problem, the association decided not to initiate immediately a scheme that would require important additions to the staff of the secretariat. Meanwhile, the organization of the secretariat has been subjected to scrutiny by experts, resulting in certain minor reforms.
