Abstract

The tendency of the age seems well-nigh worldwide for isolated groups of the community—trades, professions, etc.—to adopt for the common good of their membership certain methods of communal activity. The unanimity with which the medical profession seized the opportunity to reorganize on a basis effective for the general good of physicians and the commonwealth is an illustration in point. It is fortunate that the adopted mode of organization affords through the autonomy of the county society so full opportunity for varied experiments in medical socialism. Some societies are doing little or nothing in this direction; others are taking very advanced ground and are working out some theoretical and practical problems of exceedingly great interest. Recently in these columns we drew attention to the Cleveland Academy of Medicine and its very effective work along certain lines. We have since received the announcement of the Defense League of the Wayne County Medical
