Dr. John B. Murphy of Chicago, pres
ident of the American Medical asso

health, with supervision over all health
subjects, offers the only logical con
trol of American medical practice. He
said the Owen bill meets the needs.
He predicted its passage unchanged in
its material provisions, if the doctors
of the nation get actively behind it.
Another resolution adopted calls for
the formation of a national council on
public health under auspices of the
American Medical association. The
aim is to bring together annually or
oftener all federal, state, and munici
pal health officials for discussion of
health and legislative subjects.
Through such an organization, it is
contended, health officials will be able
to standardize and systematize their
work ana wage a united campaign for
proper health legislation in nation,
