Smears are taken from every discharging eye and examined for gonococcus. In all these sixty-six cases the gonococcus was found but once. The vast majority (forty-eight) were late infections with organisms other than the gonococcus. These do not seem to be prevented by any silver salt, and most of them were slight. All discharging eyes, no matter what the organism, are counted as cases of ophthalmia neonatorum. As stated above, the gonococcus was demonstrated but once in the whole series. No eyes were lost and no opacities or other abnormalities noted on discharge.
The Council on Medical Education was created in 1904.
The first personal inspection of all medical colleges was made by representatives of the Council in 1905-6 and 1906-7.
The first classification of medical colleges by the Council was presented to the House of Delegates of the A. M. A. in 1907.
Second tour of inspection of all medical colleges by the Council was completed, 1909-10.
Second classification of medical colleges reported to the House of Delegates and published, 1910.
The Journal A. M. A. , (Aug. 6) , 1910, p. 508.
Brit. Med. Jour. , (June 3) , 1905, p. 1197.
These reports were put in type before the session and were printed in the "House of Delegates Handbook." A copy of this is in the hands of each delegate, thus greatly facilitating the course of business. The Handbook also contained the names of all the officers, members of committees, and the Constitution and By-Laws.
