—In view of the large backlog of eyes in the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology and the resulting delay in the pathologic reports, the Committee on Ophthalmic Pathology of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology, in conjunction with the A. F. I. P., has made inquiries regarding the facilities in other institutions for processing eyes and so relieving the situation in Washington.Dr. Michael J. Hogan, chairman of the Committee, has received replies from 26 laboratories in the United States that are able to take on additional eyes in limited numbers. Many of these laboratories have a full load from local institutions but are willing to take on more to relieve the load on the A. F. I. P. and to facilitate earlier reports. All pathologic laboratories need unusual cases for teaching material and are willing to take on an extra load to get them.
