To the Editor:
The undersigned believe that the time has come for the formation of a national society, devoted to the advancement of the interests of the medical sciences, as distinct from the clinical side of medicine. The proposed society will be specially concerned with pathology and bacteriology, and a meeting for discussion of its plan and scope will be held in Washington, D. C., on the afternoon of Monday, April 30, at 2:30 p.m., in the Arlington Hotel. The general plan of the Society, so far as yet suggested, is:1. Membership is limited to those who have already accomplished creditable work in research in pathology or bacteriology. 2. Meetings to be held annually in some important center, as may be determined (in May or June). 3. Members of the society to see that the work done by them, or under their control, is represented at
