The Army Medical Examining Board recently convened in Washington, D. C, for the examination of candidates for admission into the Medical Corps of the Army has concluded its labors, with the result of adding five young officers to the Corps. We learn that about forty candidates received invitation to appear before the Board but that only thirty-four took advantage of the permission. Of ten examined during the first week one was successful; of fourteen who appeared during the second week none succeeded in effecting an entrance, while four of eleven in the third week were more fortunate in the effort to demonstrate their qualifications. A notable percentage failed on account of defects of physique; and among these were probably some who might have showed to advantage had they been permitted to proceed with the examination into their general education and professional acquirements. We print in another part of this issue,
