The reports of the officers and the Board of Trustees of the American Medical Association, which appear in the Organization Section of The Journal this week (pp. 1261-1367), constitute a remarkable record of achievement under most difficult conditions. New peaks are announced for every phase of the Association's activities. True, there was some diminution in Fellowship occasioned by entrance of Fellows into military service, but even here the reduction was minimal, and membership in the Association was actually increased. The net gain and the income from the publications of the Association rose amazingly, owing in large part to a decrease in employed personnel, to restrictions on the use of paper and to inability to replace old equipment and purchase new machinery. Nevertheless, this testifies also to the dynamic efforts of those who carried on the work of the headquarters office handicapped by lack of secretarial and other usual assistance.
