The managers of the Children's Hospital, with the generous support of the Julius Rosenwald Fund of Chicago, have established a ward for the study of neurologic problems among children, which has been in operation for a year. Obviously we have no important statistics to offer, but we are eager to present our plans and methods for discussion. It is particularly interesting to us to find out whether pediatricians, coming without formal training into the highly sophisticated specialty of neurology, can suggest new problems or at least find out whether shifts of emphasis are desirable. The grounds for discontent with the conventional method of approach and the selection of our tentative program seem to us logical.
