We suggest that some of the "Tri-State" societies try a new name to avoid triangular confusion. We now have a Tri-State Society of the brethren of Missouri, Iowa and Illinois, another of Indiana, Kentucky and Illinois, another of Arkansas, Tennessee and Mississippi, and another of Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia. There is room in the American Medical Association for all of them, and all would be stronger if united in one great body. The great need of the profession is organization, and medical men should join the parent medical Association on the broad ground of mutual scientific interests and material advancement. The door is always open to members by application at any season. We hope each member may aid the great movement now going on, which has for its object the formation of one of the most powerful medical associations of the time, in the American Medical Association.
