The announcement, on May 26, that the Baruch Committee on Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation had attained its objectives and was discontinuing its activities offered a magnificent example of the manner in which a voluntary effort toward the advancement of an important phase of medical practice can still be achieved in a free country by a willing group of workers. In this instance, the generosity of one person, Mr. Bernard M. Baruch, and the efforts of a group of medical scientists were responsible for extensive developments in the treatment of disease by physical agents and in the rehabilitation of disabled persons. The members of the Baruch Committee include Dr. John F. Fulton, Yale University; Dr. Charles G. Heyd, Columbia University; Dr. Andrew C. Ivy, University of Illinois; Dr. Frank H. Krusen, University of Minnesota (chairman); Dr. Chauncey D. Leake, University of Texas; Dr. Frank R. Ober, Harvard University; Dr. Winfred Overholser,
