Dr. Wyeth's presidential address, which is published in this issue, is suggestive in a number of ways. His suggestion of the need of a uniform standard of medical qualification is brief but timely, and should receive the earnest attention of the profession generally. If its sentiment on this point is strongly and generally voiced, the end will be attained, if not at once, at least at an early date. That it is practicable is beyond question, as our Canadian neighbors have demonstrated. The remarks on section papers and on branch organizations are likewise, intimations of what must commend itself to every one. The recommendation of permanent places of meeting, while doubtless not novel to everyone, is worthy of serious consideration whatever may be the outcome of the discussion. The present inadequacy of the Army medical force and the prospect of matters becoming worse before they are better, are living questions
