Scarcely have we had time to realize that the great war is over when the numerous after-the-war problems present themselves. Reconstruction seems to be the word on every one’s tongue, and the term is applied to almost every phase of human activity. There is reconstruction of the wounded, not only in a physical sense, but also in the sense of reeducating the partially disabled along lines that will enable them to become self-supporting; reconstruction of the industries to meet the new problems of finance, transportation, labor, foreign markets, etc.; in fact, conditions have changed so that readjustments along many lines have become necessary. Nor is the reconstruction idea limited to certain activities, for in some countries the fundamental principles of social existence are rapidly undergoing reconstruction. There is so much upheaval going on throughout the world that it is not surprising that the medical profession has received some attention.
