This conference, which, as previously noted in the Journal, is to be held in Brussels, September 4 to 8, will discuss the possibility of ridding society of syphilis and venereal disease. Next to consumption come these diseases in their direful effects on humanity, and as they are certainly preventable, it would seem about time that international action be taken in the premises. While radical and harsh measures may be necessary for a generation or two, there are certainly no insurmountable obstacles to prevent their total elimination. Invited to the Conference are not only physicians, but lawyers and all public functionaries who are interested in the question. We hope and expect to see good results from the Conference.
