At the last meeting of the Ohio State Medical Association the following by-law was adopted: "At the annual meeting for the election of officers each component society shall appoint one of its members as a member of the Auxiliary Committee on Public Policy and Legislation, and the secretary shall send his name and address at once to the secretary of the State Medical Association. The Committee on Public Policy and Legislation of the State Medical Association shall formulate the duties of this Auxiliary Committee and supply each member with a printed copy." It is the intention to have this committee look after the interests of the public and of the medical profession by assisting in the suppression of the "patent-medicine" evil, prosecuting fraudulent and illegal practitioners by inaugurating a system of registration, abolishing medico-political partisanship from public office, and assisting the proper public authorities in the suppression of criminal abortion.
