The annual meetings of this association are always important events in the public-health world, but the meeting this year is of more than usual interest, since it ends the first 12 months of the new program adopted as a result of the reorganization of the association in 1922.

Two general sessions and 26 meetings of the scientific sessions will be held this year. In addition, many trips of technical and general interest have been planned around the historic city of Boston as part of the entertainment and educational program. On Monday evening, October 8, the formal opening session will be held, followed by a reception. On Wednesday evening, October 10, Sir Thomas Oliver, distinguished English industrial hygienist, and Dr. George E. Vincent, president of the Rockefeller Foundation, will address the second general session. The scientific program, embracing all branches of public health, will be held according to sections as follows: Public health administration, laboratory, sanitary engineering, vital statistics, child hygiene, food and drugs, industrial hygiene, public health nursing, health education and publicity.

Among the important subjects scheduled for discussion are food inspection, growth of children, full-time health officers, mental hygiene in the school program, nutrition work, the effect of so-called "moonshine" liquors, standards for schoolhouse construction and sanitation, epidemiology, better birth registration, organic heart disease, the etiology of common colds, water supply and purification, and mosquito control.

An important report of the committee on municipal health department practice will be presented in the public health administration section. At this time the announced plan for the awards to cities for distinctive community service will be discussed. The problems of health officers in small communities will be specially considered at a round-table discussion scheduled for Wednesday morning. The clinic on printed matter, which has proved valuable in past years, will be held again this year by the section on health education and publicity. At this clinic, samples of public health publicity will be examined and criticized by experts. Of special interest also is the report of the committee on health problems in education, of the child hygiene section.

In the September issue of the American Journal of Public Health will be found the preliminary annual meeting program arranged by sections, and the October number of the Journal will contain additional information.

Members of the association traveling by rail to Boston may secure a reduction of one-fourth the regular round-trip rate.

Headquarters will be at the Copley-Piaza Hotel.


Directories of the State and insular health authorities of the United States for each year from 1912 to 1922 have been published in the Public Health Reports' for the information of health officers and others interested in public-health activities. These directories have been ■ compiled from data furnished by the respective State and insular health officers and include data as to appropriations and publications.

Where an officer has been reported to be a "whole-time" health officer, that fact is indicated by an asterisk (*). For this purpose a "whole-time" officer is defined as "one who does not engage, in the practice of medicine or any other business, but devotes all his time to official duties."
