Most of this report is presented in a readable and interesting form. The foreword presents a summary of world health conditions and of health conditions in the United States. No quarantinable disease was introduced into the United States from abroad during the year, and the prevention of spread of disease through interstate traffic was, for the most part, successful. The report of each division, such as those of scientific research, quarantine, marine hospitals, venereal disease, mental hygiene, personnel, and accounts, are given separately.
