PHYSICIANS OP STATE IO COME Aiinoiincemcnt That ScvSsions o Surgeons Will bc Open At tracts Much Attention. AN EXCLUSIVE ORGANIZATIOM Mcmbcrship Limitcd to 125 Others Are on thc Wait ing List. ' Announcpnient was mado yesterdaj* by Dr. Georgo Ben Jolinston. chalrman of the loenl commltteo of arrnngcments for the comlng conventlon of the Amer? lcan Surglcal Assoclation. whlch slt*i lii the Jeffers-on nudltorliim on May ?Hh. to the effect that all thc meetlngs of the noted speclallsts will bo open tn the public and that medical and sclentlflc men wlll be especially in? vited to attend and bear tlie dlscus slons. As a result of this lnvltatlon, it Is pNpected that physlclans from all stetlons of the Stato wlll gather hore to attend the conventlon. "Many of the papers wlll be of un? usual Interest." sald Dr. Jolinston, "and I should thlnk thore would be. a num? ber of medical men ln Vlrglnla who would br glad to take ndvnntage of the opportunity. to hear them dlscussed. All wlM be welcome to attend the ses-, slons." Membershlp Llmlted. The tltlcs of all the papers were prlnted In last Monday's Times-DIs? patch. Plxty-tive members of the asso? ciation have already engaged thelr holol accommodation. and many others have Flgnlfled thelr intentlon of attend Ing. The local commlttee fcels sure, therefore, that thls wlll be the largest convention In polnt of attendance ever held by thc organlzatlon. The assoclation is llmitod in mem? bershlp to 125, and has an extended waitlng llst, many men prominent ln the profession having been waitlng for membership four or flve years. The essentlal provislon on whlch membershlp in the surglcal associa? tion is based is that the appllcant shall be a teacher of surgery or a practiclng surgeon who has made somo original resenrch and has added some? thlng to the sum of human knowl? edge. The majorlty of the members nre men of letters. many of them be? lng authors of standard text-books on surgerv. As a necessary requlslte for iiiomborshlp the appllcant has to file wlth the council a thesis or original treatlse on some form of surglcal re? search. Member* Here. Pecullar Interest attaches to thc meeting of the association in nich mond. which meeting also illustrates the pre-eminence of thls city as a medical and surglcal cer/re. as two of the former presidents of the assocla? tion. Dr. Jolinston and the late Dr. Hunter McGuire, have both been at the head of large medical institutions and hospitals here. One of the equlements whlch has kept some Southcn men out of the as? sociatlon is that tbe appllcant shall bo a specialist ln surgery. doing no general practlce. Wlth but two mem? bers ln Virginia at present. Dr. Jolin? ston and Dr. Lewis C. Bosher, the as? sociatlon has no member in elther of thc Carollnas or in Georgia, the lack of clty hospltal facilities tn the'towns of the Carollnas havlng retarded the development of surgery. while ln the hospitals of Atlanta there is said to he no surgeon who gives hls entlre time to his spectallty, all the physlc? lans there engaging "more or less ln genernl practlce.

And he handed- the paper over to the reporter. Rcnsons Appear Mrnnc.
