Elsewhere in this issue (page 555) appears a condensation of a preliminary opinion in an Oregon case involving the legality under the Sherman Anti-Trust Act of prepayment medical care plans as operated by the Oregon State Medical Society and certain county and regional societies. The legality of the plans was upheld.
