To the Editor:—
I have been asked by Dr. C. S. Huang, director, Taiwan Provincial Shikau Mental Hospital, 138 Hu-lin Street, Shun-san, Taipei, Taiwan (Formosa), for help in securing upto-date material. His hospital is the only mental hospital for the 9 million people in Taiwan. He wrote me a pathetic letter concerning the "old methods," and the need to get his hospital "improved." My acquaintance with Dr. Huang developed through correspondence regarding a shock therapy machine that I was able to send through the generosity of the women of Lincoln, Neb., following a visit to Taiwan with my husband. The Taipei Women's Club asked me to try to get the machine. It was received with the greatest appreciation. Do you know who might send complimentary subscriptions of current journals?
