The Bellevue-Stratford Hotel in Philadelphia has been chosen as the official
headquarters for our 1937 meeting to be held June 2, 3, 4, and 5th. The Hotel
will solicit your reservation and we urge that you make your reservation early to
avoid any possible conflict,
On Wednesday, June 2nd, plans are underway for a Clinical Pathological Confer-
ence in the morning and a series of Post Mortem examinations in the afternoon. There
are also plans for a special group of papers dealing with hematology for those who
may elect that instead of post mortem demonstrations. As there is a vast amount of
material available in Philadelphia, the committee will be glad to arrange special
demonstrations on any subject for which there is sufficient demand to warrant it.
The local committee will make a special effort to make arrangements for any member
desiring to visit any institution. Your attention is called to the enclosed ques-
tionnaire which will enable the committee to plan the program, Please fill this
out and return it to the Secretary immediately.
Thursday, June 3rd, will be devoted to a tumor seminar under the direction of
Dr. Joseph McFarland. A group of 25 slides, selected by Dr. McFarland will be pre-
pared and mailed out to registrants about three weeks before the annual meeting, in
order to give the registrant sufficient time to study these slides before the
seminar, Registration will have to be made considerably in advance of the meeting
so that the Committee will be able to prepare the proper number of slides, The
Committee, therefore, requests that the registration be in by March 15, 1937. If
you find that you are unable to attend, you may cancel your registration anytime
before the slides are mailed out, May 1st, and your fee will be returned. Inasmuch
as the seminar must be self-sustaining, the plan of a registration fee that was in-
augurated by the committee last year will again be in effect. The registration fee
is $5.00, payable with the registration before March 15, 1937. Only those vho reg-
ister, will be permitted to participate in the seminar, as it will be impossible to
make last minute arrangements.
To facilitate registration, please use the enclosed card. Print your name and
address plainly, since the slides will be mailed out as indicated on the card. Make
check, draft, or money order payable to the American Society of Clinical Pathologists
and mail to 531 North Main Street, South Bend, Indiana.
No doubt you will prefer to bring your own microscope with which you are
accustomed to work. However, arrangements will be made to rent microscopes from
students locally if you do not care to bring your own. Please indicate on the sem-
inar registration card if you wish to rent a microscope.
The hematological division of the Research Committee wishes to announce that
slides presented at the last seminar are available for study at a nominal fee to
cover the cost of handling. If you are interested in studying these slides, you
may write to Dr. Frank Heck, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota.
Here’s what’s next.
