Hartford, Conn., Oct. 22, 1907.
To the Editor:
—At the International Antialcoholic Congress, held recently at Stockholm, Sweden, a bureau was established having for its purpose the collection of statistics, papers and documents pertaining to the alcoholic problem from all points of view. This bureau is to be located at Zurich, Switzerland, with Professor Hercord as secretary. This is a similar organization to one formed in Boston last December, called the Scientific Temperance Federation. Both organizations have united, having the same purpose and object, and both are to work conjointly. Documents and papers of one will be transferred or utilized by the other. Both appeal to scientific and philanthropic persons everywhere to assist in the collection of books, papers, studies of every description pertaining to the alcoholic problem. These papers and documents are to be tabulated and arranged so that authors can utilize them in their studies of the subject.
