Treasurer of The American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene The accompanying audit summarizes the financial condition of the Society for the year ended 31 December 1971. In spite of rising costs, the Society did realize an increase in cash balance of $1,714.93 and a net worth of $2,324.36. One source of rising costs can be seen in the “Schedule of Journal Income and Expenses,” wherein the excess of expenses over receipts amounted to $2,158.18. The increased cost of publishing the Journal, however, has been met by an increase in subscription rates, beginning with Volume 21.
