NEW NONSCIENTIFIC FILMS FOR LAY AUDIENCES  Three new non-scientific films for lay audiences have been added to the A. M. A. Film Library. "You Are There: The Discovery of Anesthesia," dramatizes the first time ether was used successfully in a surgical operation. "You Are There: The First Major Test of Penicillin" discusses the place of scientific development in modern medicine and its influence on peace and war. It also demonstrates preparations for testing the drug on a group of wounded soldiers. Both are 25-minute films and were produced by CBS Television and narrated by Walter Cronkite. "Someone Is Watching" depicts actual cases from the files of the New York State Health Department's Bureau of Narcotics Control. The film runs 16 minutes. All three of these 16-mm., black and white sound films are available from the A. M. A. for showings by state and local medical societies.
