To have been privileged to hear Dr. Philip Van Ingen and Dr. George T. Palmer recite the contents of this volume at the White House Conference still remains as one of the thrills that great Congress provided. The accuracy, the completeness and the sincerity of purpose of this study were made so impressive through the personality of the speakers that one who heard them almost hesitates to invade the impersonal domain of the printed page. There were many, however, who were not present, and to them will this volume stand as monumental evidence of an untiring effort to obtain facts—facts gleaned from one of the most extensive statistical studies ever attempted.
The pediatric world should be impressed, as a result, with its tremendous strength as a strong contender in the field of preventive medicine, while at the same time it should feel chagrined at the evident failure it has made.
