This volume is distributed with the purpose of raising money to aid the Jewish Frontier and League for Labor Palestine. It contains an assemblage of individual contributions on a variety of subjects, ranging from an essay on the pituitary gland and its hormones by J. B. Collip and on backache by Julius Friedenwald to an essay on "The Atmosphere of Books" by Dr. William Mayo. Much of the material is reprint and reiteration. It is to be hoped that any future publications of similar character may be planned according to some definite scheme. Unfortunately, far too many volumes of this type serve merely as repositories for essays which could not find publication elsewhere. No doubt it requires extraordinary courage on the part of an editor of such a publication to reject material not equal to the highest standards of medical literary competence.
