677 "Of recent" years," writes A. H., " Dobriner had contributed largely to the establishment of the patterns of urinary excretion of the steroid hormones in normal and pathological states, the application of infra-red spectroscopy to steroid structure and metabolism, and the study of the effects of cortisone and related steroids on the growth of experimental tumours. From these later researches he was. gradually evolving a view and interpretation of the role of adrenal cortical dysfunction in the inception and development of malignant disease as a whole. A welcome visitor to England, he had taken part in various symposia at the Ciba Foundation and at other meetings elsewhere, and his friends had looked forward to meeting him at the International Congress of Biochemistry in Paris this summer. Many, not only in the country of his adoption but far beyond it, will mourn Dobie as a valued colleague and generous friend."

Sir John Troutbeck, the British Ambassador, recalled that Bagdad was once the centre of the medical world ; and " those who are Scotsmen among you may think that it might still be so today if its place had not been usurped by Edinburgh." The medical profession in Iraq had been built up in the closest association with the British, and the growing international importance of the Iraqi medical profession and of the Royal Medical College in Bagdad was clearly evident. The Ambassador was followed by Sayyid Majed Mustapha, the minister for social affairs, and Prof. Hashim al-Witry, dean of the medical faculty. The scientific proceedings were opened by Prof. F. A. R. Stammers (Birmingham), who spoke on Fluid, Crystalloid, and Protein Balance m Surgery. Dr. F. Akrawi, professor of venereology at Bagdad, discussed bejel, which is a treponemal disease resembling syphilis, endemic in some parts of the Middle East. Clinically, bejel resembles syphilis except for the absence of the primary sore, the rarity or absence of neurovisceral complications, and doubt about its hereditary transmission. Professor Akrawi regards bejel as syphilis modified by the conditions under which it exists. A lecture on W.H.O. in the Middle East, by Dr. W. H. Crighton, public-health administrator for the Eastern Medi- terranean Regional Office of W.H.O., was followed by a discussion in which Dr. W. H. Ford Robertson (Beirut) suggested that insufficient attention had been given to mental health in the Middle East, and Prof. A. M. Critchley (Bagdad), hon. secretary of the Middle East Branch of the B.M.A., declared that the W.H.O. services for acquiring and imparting information could be improved. THE MEDICAL DIRECTORY THE two volumes of The Medical Directory 1952 follow the pattern of last year, but the number of medical practitioners listed has increased by 2174 (making a total of 81,846), the number of pages by 56, and the price by 9s.

In 1922 he held a Frank Smart studentship at Caius College, and in 1926 he graduated B.CHIR. from St. Thomas’s Hospital.
