Orleans, advising all who could possibly do so to attend that meeting and offering to aid in every possible way the registration of those who wished to go.

DR. M. M. SMITH: I want information on a little point. My understanding that members of this Association who have read papers before this meeting, if the author so desires he may publish same where he likes; but under reorganization aecording to the American Medical Association plan this rule does not work. I want to know, do they go into effect after adjournment of this Association or do the Constitution and By-Laws governing this Association govern the publication of these papers ?

DR. H. A. WEST: My understanding is, so far as the publication of the papers is concerned, that we operate under the old by-law, wherein authors if they so desire are allowed to publish their papers elsewhere before their appearance in the proceedings.

DR. S. C. RED: The rules and regulations of the new Constitution should go into effect immediately upon the adjournment of this body, i. e., as soon as we adjourn here the new Constitution and By-Laws will be in force.

DR. J. T. MOORE: I think it would be very unfortunate to attempt to work under the old Constitution, because the work we have done would practically be of no value. In order to settle this matter with reference to publishing papers, I move that all persons who have contributed to this Association be allowed to publish them where they choose, in addition to their publication in the Transactions.

The motion, upon being duly seconded, was adopted.
Dr. Crouse offered the following resolution:

I wish to make a motion that this part of the executive work stop, and that we take up the reading of papers instead.

DR. S. C. RED: I would like to ask if this is the last business session before we close ?

Dr. H. A. West offered the following amendment: That we take up scientific work for a little while and that executive business be resumed after reading of papers.

The motion, as amended, was then adopted.
