58 fibrillation being materially reduced, and a fall in venous pressure. Electrocardiograms showed a lengthened auriculo-ventricular conduction time and vagal stimulation. There was an early diuresis and dyspnoea, was relieved. Animal experiments showed that 82 per cent. of a fatal dose was eliminated within 24 hours. The drug is recommended for patients intolerant of, or not reacting to, digitalis ; for hyper- thyroid fibrillation or tachycardia ; and as a substitute for any cardiac glucoside that needs injection. It is produced in 2 c.cm. ampoules containing the standard dose of 3 cat units, by Eli Lilly and Co. of Indianapolis, U.S.A. (2, Dean-street, London, W.1). SCHOOL AND COLLEGE MANAGEMENT A MONTHLY magazine devoted to the administrative problems connected with the running of schools should be of service to many. The first number of School and College Management, published in May at 18., contains some 18 articles dealing with various aspects of this large subject. The all-important financial aspect is discussed in an article on invest- ment policy by the Bursar of Caius, and in another by Messrs. R. J. E. Silvey and M. A. Abrams, who write on the birth-rate, incomes, and schools. Food is considered in three articles : Prof. V. H. Mottram puts the case for the dietitian, Mr. Charles E. Hecht writes on food habits, and Mrs. Mary M. J-effreys supplies some specimen menus. School architecture receives much attention. Messrs. S. W. Davis and K. M. B. Cross write on the planning of swimming pools, and Mr. Peter Bicknell on the new tuck-shop at Oundle. There is also an article on the adminis- tration of preparatory schools. On the purely medical side there are two articles of note ; one by Dr. G. E. Friend on the application of statistics to school medicine and the other by Dr. R. E. Smith on planning a sanatorium. A service bureau has been established and readers are urged to make the fullest possible use of it. THE MUSCLES OF THE BODY AN excellent little pocket book on the muscular system, now in its third edition, will continue to be a boon to students. Within small compass an account is given of all the muscles in the body, including their nerve-supply and actions. An intro- duction supplies a simple description of the physio- logical basis of the muscular system, and an appendix gives useful test movements for localising nerve lesions. The anatomical illustrations of muscles and of the cutaneous areas of peripheral nerves are adequate. The muscle action is not always sufficiently detailed. For example, the actions of the obliquus abdominalis, externus and internus, are given as " similar," including rotation, though they rotate to opposite sides. But such omissions are rare, and the application of a little common sense makes them unimportant. The matter as a whole is well arranged and contains all the essentials. Medical Diary Information to be included in this column should reach us in proper form on Tuesday, and cannot appear if it reaches us later than the first post on Wednesday morning.
