The Practical Medicine Series Year Book on Neurology and Psychiatry, edited by Peter Bassoe and Franklin G. Ebaugh, is as usual well done. It is of interest that the neurologic editor considers the outstanding contribution of the year Cushing's description of the clinical picture of basophilic adenoma of the hypophysis. Second in importance he places Cushing's contribution to the relationship between lesions of the brain and gastric ulcer. The psychiatric editor does not mention any outstanding contributions. However, he notes with pleasure that in the preceding year "there is less of an element of propaganda than previously. The literature for the past year also indicates the lack of well organized research in the psychiatric field." No further comment on the progress in these two fields is necessary.
