To the Editor:—
We wish to correct an impression which seems to exist that the Ligue internationale contre le rheumatisme, which was to hold its seventh congress in America in the early part of the summer of 1940, has been permanently dissolved. The president of the league, Dr. Ralph Pemberton, and the chairman of the American committee of the league, Dr. Robert B. Osgood, feel that this is an entirely erroneous impression. The activities of the league have been temporarily suspended for the duration of the war, but we fully expect to hold the next congress of the league in America as soon after the war as such a congress would seem likely to be successful. Both the British and the American sentiment strongly favor the resumption of the league activities as soon as this is possible.
