1186 MEDICAL NEWS.—MEDICAL DIARY The late Dr. Richmond Leigh The death is announced of Dr. Richmond Leigh, of Reitz, Orange Free State, who is said to have been the - oldest member of the medical profession in South Africa. He died on Oct. 22, at the age of 91. Dr. Leigh qualified as M.R.C.S. from Liverpool in 1870, and was medical officer at St. George’s Skin Hospital there in 1872 to 1898. During the South African War he served as a civil surgeon, and in 1903 he was appointed district surgeon of Reitz, holding this position until his retirement in 1923. Municipal Hospitals A new tuberculosis pavilion, which has cost £12,000, at Harts’ Sanatorium, Woodford Green, was recently opened by the then Mayor of East Ham, Alderman G. H. Manser-To Moor Park, New South Shields, the borough of Tynemouth has just added a new isolation block. It is a single-storey building with eight single-bed cubicles. Queen Alexandra’s Hospital for Officers Lord Melchett presided at the fourteenth annual reunion dinner of this hospital on Friday, Nov. 10th, at the Criterion Restaurant, when a group of former patients and members of the nursing staff met at dinner. The chairmanship was appropriate, as Lord Melchett was a patient of the hospital on two occasions and his father built, equipped, and largely maintained the hospital for nearly five years at the suggestion of Mr. Herbert Paterson, hon. surgeon-in-charge. The work of the hospital during the war received special commendation from Sir Alfred Keogh. Lord Horder, who, until seconded for other duties, was physician to the hospital, was the guest of honour at the reunion, and referred wittily to his own surgical exploits and his reminiscences of his short period of duty at Queen Alexandra’s Hospital. In proposing the toast of the Princess Victoria, from whom a telegram of good wishes was received during the evening, Lord Melchett spoke with optimism of the future of the Empire. Capt. W. L. D. Gibson responded to the toast of the former patients proposed by the chairman, and Dr. C. S. Williamson proposed the health of the Matron (Miss M. C. Sinzininex, R.R.C.) and the nursing staff, to which the Matron replied. Mr. Owen Roberts proposed the health of Mr. Paterson and Mrs. Paterson, who had served as Hon. Quartermaster to the hospital. That such gatherings should still be held is evidence of the lasting camaraderie which has followed the war. Physiological Society A meeting of this society will be held at the National Institute for Medical Research, Hampstead, London, N.W., at 3 P.M., on Saturday, Nov. 18th. There will be demonstrations of : the reactions of the tissues to dust from tarred roads, and the acclimatisation (?) of animals to 0-3 per cent. of carbon monoxide in inspired air (J. Argyll Campbell); perfusion of a sympathetic ganglion, and chemical transmission at synapses (W. Feldberg and J. H. Gaddum) ; a sensitive physical test for adrenaline (J. H. Gaddum and H. Schild) ; a convenient form of fluid electrode, and a forceps for passing deep ligatures (L. W. Collison) ; parabiotic rats and ferrets (R. T. Hill) ; and methods of approach in hypophysectomy (A. S. Parkes). From 4.45 P.M. onwards there will be discussions on the following printed communications : human electro- cardiograms (P. Rijlant) ; the mechanisms of the nervous discharge of adrenaline (W. Feldberg, B. Minz, and J. Tsudzimura) ; and the nomenclature of fibres in the autonomic system and their effects (Sir Henry Dale). The subjects of other communications will include : the chemical transmitter of effects of the vagus nerve (Sir H. Dale) ; the chemical transmitter at synapses in a sympathetic ganglion (W. Feldberg and J. H. Gaddum) ; the relations between the action of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves of the stomach (J. S. Harrison and B. A. MeSwiney) ; the effects of mechanical factors in water-diuresis in man (G. W. Theobald); the assay of ovulation-producing substances (A. S. Parkes) ; meta- bolic changes following adrenalectomy (0. Cope and others) ; and glycolytic formation of blood lactate (C. Lovatt Evans and others). The assistant hon. secretary may be addressed at the department of physiology, University College, Gower-street, W.C.I. Devizes and District Hospital This institution has become so inadequate that an appeal is being made for £21,000 for its modernisation and enlargement. The building, which was erected in 1870 and enlarged in 1887 and again in 1911, has no out- patients’ department, and out-patients have to be attended to in the X ray room or the general wards. Accident cases also have to be dealt with in the general wards at whatever hour they may be admitted. Fracture cases sometimes have to be sent home after treatment, and other patients, it is stated, have frequently to be dis- charged prematurely although the eight-bed wards have on occasions to hold 10, 12, or even more patients. The sleeping accommodation for nurses and maids is so restricted that some have to sleep out, and some of those accommodated in the hospital have to share bedrooms with one, two, or even three, others. Night nurses have to write their notes in a passage. There is no isolation block, and it is impossible to improve the kitchen and other domestic accommodation. Ground immediately adjacent is now available, and it is proposed first to build new nurses’ and kitchen quarters, and an out-patients’ and accident department.
