REPORT OF THE DELEGATE TO THE MEDICAL SOCIETY OF THE STATE OF MASSACHUSETTS DR. H. G. ANDERSON.

Mr. President and Gentlemen of the House of Delegates:

The delegate to the Massachusetts Medical Society from the Connecticut State Medical Society begs to report that he had the pleasure of presenting the compliments of the Society to the Massachusetts Society at their meeting held in Boston, June 3-4,

1919.

Every courtesy of the occasion was extended and the visit was made one to be remembered with pleasure.

The first morning was occupied with clinics at various hospitals. The afternoon session was divided into three sections, medical, surgical and on tuberculosis. This arrangement gave opportunity for presentation of many good papers and allowed a concentration of interest.

The morning of the second day was given to a general meeting with papers on lessons learned from war surgery. In the afternoon there was an open meeting of the section of Hospital Administration.

The meetings were well attended and from both the social and scientific aspects were of great interest.

Respectfully submitted,

H. G. ANDERSON.

REPORT OF THE DELEGATE TO THE MEDICAL SOCIETY OF THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE.

DR. DANIEL P. GRIFFIN.

Mr. President and Gentlemen of the House of Delegates:

The meeting of the New Hampshire State Medical Society was held in the city of Concord. Delegates from Maine, Vermont, Rhode Island and Connecticut attended.

The president's address reviewed medical activities in the World War and in civilian life and indicated opportunities and duties which the profession was approaching. The papers covered a variety of subjects and were most instructive.

Respectfully submitted,

DANIEL P. GRIFFIN.

REPORT OF THE DELEGATE TO THE MEDICAL
SOCIETY OF THE STATE OF RHODE ISLAND.
DR. CHARLES C. GILDERSLEEVE.

Mr. President and Gentlemen of the House of Delegates:

It was my great pleasure to represent the Connecticut Medical Society at the 108th Annual Meeting of the Rhode Island Medical Society held in the Medical Library of the Society at Providence, R. I., June 15, 1919.

As you perhaps know, the Rhode Island Medical Society has a one-day meeting. The literary exercises began at 4 P. M. There was an interesting paper on "War Neuroses," by Arthur H. Ruggles, Providence, R. I. There was a report by the Director of Federal and State Health Departments for the Control of Venereal Disease, illustrated by moving pictures, by Dr. Harry W. Kimball, Surgeon U. S. P. H.

The annual address of the President, Gardner T. Swarts, M.D., was well worth hearing.

June 15, 1919, was one of the hottest days on record, and after driving fifty-six miles in my auto, I arrived in Providence in a melting condition.

When the meeting in the Medical Building adjourned to the Turks Head club rooms in the Turks Head Building for the annual banquet, it was like being transported from the torrid to the arctic zone. The banquet, as well as the afternoon meeting, was well attended. Two splendid addresses were given by Professors E. W. Taylor, M.D., of Harvard Medical School, and Frederick P. Gorham, M.D., of Brown University. Much of

the success of the banquet should be credited to the brilliant wit of the chairman of the banquet committee and the toastmaster of the evening, Dr. Blumer, and to the singing of the younger men and internes of the Rhode Island General Hospital. I was royally entertained, and I am sure that if the members of the Connecticut Medical Society knew how many courtesies were extended to me by the President, Secretary and members of the Rhode Island Medical Society, there would be a waiting list of members to represent the Connecticut Medical Society at the meeting of the Rhode Island Medical Society.

Respectfully submitted,

CHARLES CHILD GILDERSLEEVE.

The Secretary called the attention of the House of Delegates to the fact that although many important matters had been under consideration during this session there was only a small attendance in the House, that no delegate from Hartford County had been present at either session and that it was with great difficulty that two or three delegates from New Haven County were induced to attend.

Dr. Carmalt seconded the Secretary's remarks and suggested fining the absent delegates.

The following delegates to state associations were elected: Maine, P. H. Ingalls; New Hampshire, J. F. Calef; Vermont, S. M. Garlick, A. C. Freeman; Massachusetts, S. B. Overlock; Rhode Island, Charles B. Graves; New Jersey, W. K. Tingley; Pennsylvania, W. H. Donaldson, G. H. Noxon.

Dr. Galvin read the report of Dr. Griffin, delegate to the New Hampshire Medical Society.

It was voted to empower the Secretary to fill vacancies of delegates to state associations.

On motion of Dr. Donaldson it was voted to request the Council to consider the question of paying the Secretary an adequate salary. The motion was supported by Drs. Gildersleeve, Carmalt, and Tingley.

The meeting adjourned at 11:15 A. M.

Business Transacted in the Scientific Session.
WEDNESDAY, MAY 19, 1920.

Dr. H. O. Smith, Delegate from the New Hampshire Medical Society, Dr. C. W. Bartlett, of Bennington, Delegate from the Vermont State Medical Society, and Drs. Oliver H. Howe, Cohasset, and David E. Baker, of Newtonville, Delegates from the Massachusetts Medical Society, tendered the greetings of their respective societies and were welcomed by the President.

Dr. E. G. Balsam, of Billings, Secretary of the Medical Association of Montana, tendered the greetings from his Society and invited all the members of the Connecticut State Medical Society attend the meeting of the Medical Association of Montana. Dr. Lyman, Chairman of the Committee on Arrangements, made various announcements regarding the Smoker and the Banquet.

THURSDAY, MAY 20, 1920.

Dr. C. M. Ferrin, of Vermont, father of C. F. Ferrin, of New London, on the request of the President, made a short address.

Before reading his paper, Dr. Blumer, the President-elect, was requested by the President to make a few remarks, and spoke as follows: "I am deeply sensible of the fact that you have conferred upon me the highest honor in the gift of the medical profession of the state. I realize that this is one of the oldest societies in the United States and consequently a society which is rich in tradition. I shall endeavor to carry out the traditions of the Society. As I look back and think of the men who have occupied the chair since I became a resident of the state I realize that the task before me is a very considerable one. I thank you very much."

The Society passed a vote of thanks to the Committee on Arrangements for the very pleasant entertainment which had been given the Society.

A vote of thanks to Dr. Schamberg for his appearance on the programme was passed.

(Dr. Schamberg's address does not appear in the Proceedings as it was not committed to writing.)
