A most cooperative spirit has been shown by authors in following the suggestions of the editor in regard to medical writing (Arch. Dermat. & Syph. 40:442 [Sept.] 1939), made mostly to comply with the rules for publications of the American Medical Association.
Many authors, however, do not apparently understand the rules regarding the preparation of bibliographies, footnotes and illustrations. Bibliographies and footnotes should be typed on a separate numbered page (or pages) at the end of the article. Illustrations, including photographs and charts, should be sent in a separate envelope and not pasted on individual pages of the manuscript. On the back of each illustration should be written the number of the figure (fig. 1, fig. 2, etc.), the author's name and address and an arrow indicating the top. This should be written with a soft pencil. It is not necessary or desirable to write the legend on the back
