At the Chicago meeting in April the American College of Physicians for the first time in its history held a special symposium, not primarily for doctors, but for about 200 business executives and community leaders. One purpose of this symposium was to acquaint these lay leaders with the functions of the internist, a specialist whose professional qualifications and procedures are not generally as well understood as those of, for example, the surgeon or the dermatologist. The subject was "The Care and Preservation of the American Executive." Dwight L. Wilbur, president of the college, was moderator. Dr. Walter L. Palmer, Chicago, outlined the benefits derived from medical research in the last 25 years.

Dr. William C. Menninger, Topeka, Kan., speaking on emotional disturbances said that hate in the form of resentment, selfishness, and jealousy causes most of the world's troubles. Our mental health depends on how we individually handle these emotions.
