Paschen's article on smallpox is clear and reasonably concise. He accepts the view that alastrim is a mild form of smallpox. Gins's discussion of the phenomenon of immunity in variola and vaccinia, which follows, is approximately of the same length as Paschen's article, and is thoroughly down to date. The etiology of trachoma is left by Heymann and Rohrschneider somewhat indeterminate since, as they emphasize, sufficient time has not yet elapsed for the confirmation of Noguchi's work.
