An editorial in one of our contemporaries1 in India calls attention to the fact that in many respects the regulations for the Medical Department of the United States Army do not differ materially from those in the Royal Army Medical Corps of India. A provision which is made for the Medical Department of the U. S. Army which is lacking in the Royal Army Corps, namely, a medical library and the leading medical journals for each military station, is especially noted. The writer is surprised that the Indian medical authorities have not thought of this. If the medical men in the army are to keep abreast of the advances in medicine, such a provision should certainly be made, and our authorities are to be congratulated that they have not overlooked this important matter.
