men; the foremost American scientists are its stars, and during the short period it has been in operation it has produced some of the most remarkable pictures ever registered on film. It is known as “Gorgas Film Company." The Surgeon General has gone into the moving picture business, and the whole army medical department has gone in with him. With the help of various officers and privates who formerly owned, operated and worked for large moving picture companies, a moving picture plant has been installed in a building near the army medical headquarters, a government film agency has been established, and films at the rate of 158,000 feet a week are being produced for the entertainment and education of the army. Before they are shipped to the cantonments, the films are tried out in a long, dark and badly ventilated room that has all the atmosphere of a commercial moving picture theater. Here medical officers, the heads of government departments, congressional committees, and even the secretary of war, occasionally drop in and ask to see the pictures. The "animated cartoonist" of the army medical corps is Sergeant Paul Terry, who formerly ran the “Animated Weekly" and built the camera for the Bray cartoons. When he first entered the army he had no medical knowledge whatsoever, but he attracted the attention of the medical officers by the accurate sketches he was able to make of their operations. Colonel William Owen, in charge of the army movie plant under Surgeon General Gorgas, believing that the young man possessed unusual ability, decided to send him to Johns Hopkins university to study under Max Brodel. Now the Terry surgical cartoons are one of the most important products of the army medical corps, and so expert has the artist become that he can place his hand inside a wound and draw an accurate picture of its interior. In cases where a patient cannot be photographed under X-ray, Terry is always called into consultation. The “Gorgas Film Company” does not confine itself to surgical films, however. Many scenarios are written for the sole benefit of the soldier, and are teaching lessons that the finest vocal eloquence has failed to "get over." One of these, entitled, “Fit to Fight,” deals with the physological aspects of venereal disease. Another film shows the soldier how to take care of his feet-how avoid having flat feet and trench foot, and the correct motion in walking. It comprises, as one lieutenant put it, two thousand feet of foot.

State Society Meeting-At the meeting of the Arkansas State Medical Society, held at Jonesboro, Little Rock was decided on as the place of meeting for 1919, and the following officers were elected: president, Dr. Edward F. Ellis, Fayetteville; vice presidents, Dr. C. N. Phillips, Mena; Henry H. Righter, Helena, and Reuben Y. Phillips, Malvern; Secretary, Dr. Clinton P. Meriwether, Little Rock (reelected), and treasurer, Dr. William R. Bathurst, Little Rock.

Fox Hills Base Hospital Completed—The United States Base Hospital at Fox Hills, Staten Island, comprising eighty-six buildings, was completed, June 25, the entire plant having been constructed in 100 days. The hospital is now prepared to care for 3,000 patients. The staff consists of a personnel of 650 including physicians, nurses and attendants. There are three large wards containing 1,000 beds each. The hospital is one of the largest in the world. Col. William Rutherford, U. S. Army, M. C., will be in charge. In connection with the hospital, the American Red Cross has completed a theater for the patients which will seat 7,200 persons. Fifteen acres of land adjoining the hospital have been purchased by the government so that the capacity of the hospital may be doubled at any time.

New State Officers—At the meeting of the North Dakota State Medical Association in Fargo, a service Ilag bearing 125 stars was dedicated, and the following officers were elected: president, Dr. Edgar A. Pray, Valley City; vice presidents, Drs. William P. Baldwin Casselton; Fred E. Ewing, Kenmare, and Harley E. French, Grand Forks; 'secretary, Dr. Hezekiah J. Rowe, Casselton (reelected); treasurer, Dr. William F. Sihler. Devils Lake; councilors, Drs. Edward M. Ranson, Minot; Frederick L. Wicks, Valley City; Le Roy G. Smith, Medina, and Charles MacLachlan, New Rockford: delegate to the A. M. A., Dr. Charles MacLachlan, New Rockford, and alternate, Dr. Frank W. MacManus, Williston. Next meeting in Grand Forks.

Osteopaths Not Admitted to the Medical ServiceAt a meeting of the American Osteopathic Association in Boston, the president made a vigorous protest against the report made by the Surgeon General to the Military Affairs Committee of Congress adverse to the acceptance of drugless healers in the Medical Corps of the army. He quoted from this report as follows: "The admission of osteopath physicians as such, and without the degree of doctor of medicine, to the Medical Corps would have practically unanimous opposition of the medical profession of this country and of all allied countries; would be regarded, and justly so, as lowering the standards, educational and professional, of our Medical Corps. and would have a discouraging and det. rimental effect upon efforts to secure physicians for the corps, both now and in future, and upon the general morale of the corps." It certainly is difficult to imagine how an osteopathic practitioner, who is forbidden by the license law to give drugs, could treat the wounded at the front or those ill with trench fever, or the like.-N.

Stick to Your Last A physician took it into his head to go hunting, and started out bright and early on a beautiful Octo ber morning, fully armed for game. About 4 o'clock in the afternoon he returned tired out and empty handed, telling his wife he had not killed a thing whereupon she remarked triumphantly: "I told you so," adding, in the next breath: “If you had stayed at home and attended to your legitimate business you might have been more successful."
