In view of the findings in three cancer prevention clinics which have been in operation for from four to seven years, the International Cancer Research Foundation has established in the city of Philadelphia a series of clinics for the conservation of health. This has been done for a five year period on an experimental basis. It might be dubbed a five year plan or even a "noble experiment." In any case Philadelphia will be the laboratory in which data will be gathered on which may be based valid conclusions as to the future of such examining centers. That they are essential to the good health of the nation may be considered as hardly open to question in view of the findings at Selective Service examinations and at recent examinations of school children in Philadelphia.
