County Society Aid for Research Laboratory.—  The Pulaski County Medical Society gave $10,187 to the University of Arkansas Medical Center, Little Rock, Oct. 17 to establish a Virus Research Laboratory in the proposed new 2-million-dollar Research Wing to be built at the center. The check was presented to Dr. F. Douglas Lawrason, provost for medical affairs, by Dr. Hoyt Choate, society president, and Dr. Jerome S. Levy, chairman of the society's Committee for Distribution of Surplus Funds. The money will be matched by federal funds in the construction of the Research Wing. The government has allocated $1,066,000 to the university. Dr. Choate said the reserve money had been building up in the society's funds for a number of years. Out of a large number of possible uses that were considered, it was decided unanimously by the committee that it could best be utilized at the Medical Center.
