Woman Physician Honored.—  Colorado will be represented for the first time in National Statuary Hall, Washington, D. C., and the statue will be that of the late Dr. Florence Rena Sabin. Congress paved the way for placement of the statue in the Capitol during the closing hours of the recent second session. Under a law that goes back to 1864, each state is allowed two statues of deceased, distinguished citizens. Dr. Sabin, who was noted for her research in the lymphatic system and tuberculosis, died in 1953. She will become the sixth physician honored in Statuary Hall. Others are Dr. Marcus Whitman, who died in 1857, Washington; Dr. John McCoughlin, 1857, Oregon; Dr. John Gorrie, 1855, Florida; Dr. Crawford W. Long, 1878, Georgia; and Dr. Ephriam McDowell, 1830, Kentucky.
