Although I was elected to the office of Secretary in November, 1921, circumstances prevented my actively taking up the work until after January 1, 1922. Thanks however, to the continued interest of the former Secretary, Dr. Simon, and his kindly assistance and that of Major Nichols, together with the help of other members of the Society with whom I have been in touch, it has been possible for me during the brief time I have been in office to become familiar with and to administer the affairs of the Secretary's office with much less difficulty than I would have otherwise experienced.

My principal activities have been along the line of miscellaneous correspondence; collecting, as secretary of the membership committee, a list of prospective members; preparing a statement concerning the status of a list of prospective foreign members that was presented to the Society in 1919 and sending copies of this statement to the persons on this list, a copy of which was kindly furnished by Dr. Rivas; arranging the program of the 1922 meeting; and as Treasurer, collecting the annual dues.
