The National Association

At the last meeting of The Eclectic Medical Association, another effort was made to reorganize Eclecticism in the United States and to get a larger proportion of them into the National Association.

This is in line with the work that was undertaken four or five years ago when the National Secretary was sent on organizing tours to the different State societies to encourage a co-operation of effort, as a result of which five or six new societies were formed and a number of weak societies were strengthened.

In conjunction with the work of organization it is desired that the interests of eclectic physicians shall be attended to in legislative circles, and for this purpose a committee was appointed at the above named meeting which has been organized for active work.

Dr. J. K. Scudder, of Cincinnati, is the secretary of the committee and is enthusiastic in his efforts to interest every member of the committee in the work that is being done. The following is the committee and it is to be hoped that every physician there named will take a personal interest, not only in accomplishing the work that may devolve upon him as a member of the committee, but in interesting other physicians in The National Association and its active work. We must be better organized. There should be a close union between the National and state associations.
