The Directory Department of the A. M. A. recently mailed to all physicians in the United States, its dependencies, and Canada an information card, to be filled out and returned so that their data could be correctly listed in the new, 19th edition of the American Medical Directory. To date, of 240,000 cards mailed, only about 85,000 have been returned. A second mailing is now being made to every physician who did not return the first card. Please be on the lookout for this card and fill it out and return it at once. It is hoped that every physician, even those who are retired or not in practice, will return the card regardless of whether there has been any change in his address or type of practice, to insure correct listing in the new directory.
Many county and state societies have cooperated by publishing notices urging members to return
