The standards of medical education in this country as regards obstetrics arc deplorably low. The backward state of obstetrical medicine in America is partly uue to the fact that layman and the physician alike have been prone to regard the caring for women in child-birth as a more or less con temptible task. Being a mother is a dangerous vocation. Painful childbirth in this age of scientific medicine is an unwar ranted anachronism a reproach to medical science and a blemish on our boasted twentieth century civilization. These are a few of the startling statements included in a resume ut the twilight sleep, and a general discussion of the case of obstetrics in this conutry by Dr. Henry Smith Williams. By FLORENCE E.
