The committee has held some half dozen meetings since the last report and has carried on an extensive correspondence. In fact, the clerical work entailed has become too large a burden to be carried by our too willing secretary, Dr. Conrad Berens. The committee therefore voted to request the parent societies to make provision for office expenses by each contributing say $50 to be used for this purpose.
The work of this committee is largely divided among subcommittees, whose reports form the basis of discussion and action by the whole committee. These subcommittees will be taken up seriatim:
I. COMMITTEE ON MOTOR ANOMALIES AND ORTHOPTIC TRAINING
Dr. Conrad Berens, New York, ChairmanThe National Orthoptic Council has begun its work; the first examination was held in New York on March 30 and April 1 and ten candidates were examined.
II. COMMITTEE ON CODE OF LIGHTING
Dr. Alfred Cowan, Philadelphia, Chairman
