NOTES FROM ALDERSHOT.-Serjeant-Major Roberts writen:­"ALDERSHOT ROYAL ARMY MEDICAL OORPS HARRIERS' ·OLUB.

"Staff·Serjeant Merchant and various runners of ' A' Oompany who, during the summer months had been in training under his supervision for the open fiat race· events in the Aldershot Oommand, suggested that a Club might be formed with the idea to further tbe development of running in the Oorps. He therefore laid his views before Major N. H. Ross, who is keenly interested in the sporting proclivities of his men and gives them every assistance and encouragement. A meeting was held on November 14, 1910, notices having been sent to all Royal Army Medical Oorps units in the command. The suggestion was fully discussed and it was unanimously decided that a club be formed and called the' Royal Army Medical Oorps Harriers' Club,' and that the vests worn should be white, with the Oorps colours interwoven across the breast (thus reviving the old sporting colours. which appear to have died out 'somewhat of late years). The officials elected were: -

"President: Lieutenant·Oolonel G. D. Hunter, D.S.O. " Vice-President and Hoit. Treasurer: Major N. H. Ross. " Chairman: Staff·Serjeant Merchant. " Oaptain and Hon. Secretary: Private P. G. Elsey.· ." Sttb-Oaptains: Privates Mack and Jepp. A strong representative coinmittee of

. the various companies are also elected. "Lieutenant-Oolonel G. D. Hunter has given every assistance to the Club, being

the first member to join, and has watched with keen interest its progress and success. Private Elsey, having been elected Oaptain, was IO,!dly cheered by all present, for in him we have not only a mainstay and support in the m;magement and training of the men of the Oorps, but as a tutor he could not be excelled locally. Amongst his many successes may be mentioned: Winner of the Johnson Ohallenge Oup twice, Half Mile Brigade Ohallenge Oup, and runner up in both the Half Mile and One Mile Oham­pionships of Hampshire. He also did very well last year in the Army Ohampionships, and it is hoped that his deeds will stimulate others to emulate him. Staff-Serjeant l\Iercbant enters into the spirit of. true sportsmanship, being an old runner, swimmer, good shot, &c., but he has now to give way to younger blood.

"Several of our members have taken part in the principal civilian cross-country champi'onships this season, and the Olub was represented in the Junior Oross-Oountry Ohampionship by. Privates Elsey, Smith, Ainsley', and Ingham, and in the Annual

South of the Thames Cross-Oountry Ohampionship by Privates Elsey, Smith, and Ingham. In both' these races they put up very creditable performances, especially Private Elsey. The Olub sent a representative team to New MaIden, Surrey, to com­pete against the Surrey Athletic Club cracks and were only beaten by eight points. The next iuter-club race was versus the Middlesex Regiment over a 6~ mile course, and was run in a ceaseless torrent of rain, the going being terrible. Private Elseywas first man home by 'i of a mile, with Skipper second and Smith fourth.

" The Club then ran the 1st Hampshire Regiment over a 5-mile conrse, the rain rendering the going exceedingly heavy. The Oorps won by thirty points, Elsey again

"being first, closely followed by Skipper, Button, and Smith. The first man of the Hampshire pack arrived home one minute twenty-six seconds behind our first man. Their next fixture was against the Leicestershire Regiment over a 5-mile stretch in beautiful weather, the Club again winning by eight points and supplying the first three men home in Privates Skipper, Smith, and Elsey. A 4-mile road race was arranged for the' Boy' members of the Harriers Club against the Norfolk' Boys' ; they also won by the large number of forty-five points, getting seven of our boys home in front of the first Norfolk boy. The order of finishing was Bugler Page, Boy Steer, Bugler Dell, Bugler Forman, Boy Hague, &c. Page finished 2 minutes 25 seconds ahead of the first Norfolk boy. There is an Eight Mile Club Ohampionship to be run off in February for a Silver Oup and Gold Medal presented by Private Eleey, besides other inter-club fixtures with other regiments in the command, and at the close of the Oross Oountry season there will be other championships for shorter distances held on the Corps Recreation Ground.

" As the members are mostly recruits, who will consequently be drafted to other stations, other companies will profit by the sport of this Club. I feel sure eveq member of the Corps wishes the Club every success for the' blue ribbon' of cross-country run­ning-namely, the Aldershot Oommand Oross-Oountry Ohampionship which is to be held in March.

" ANNUAL OHAMPIONSHIP :MEETING.

"The members of .the Royal Army MedICal Oorps Harriers' Olub, who are also members of the Surrey A.C., held· their first annu3,1 championship cross-country race on. Saturday, February 11, at Aldershot, The championship cup, presented by P. G. Elsey, Surrey A.C., medals and badges, presented by Staff-Sergeants Merchant and W. H. Smith, Surrey A.O., were open to members of the club only, but in order to encourage members of the Oorps who had not joined to qualify for places in the team to be selected for the Aldershot Command Oross-Oountry Ohampionship next month, addi­tional badges' were offered for competition. Tbe Oorps' four crack runners for relay race teams, who are also members of the Surrey A.O., did not compete, so that the younger members would not be discouraged, a sporting trait that was much appreciated. Fourteen lads of 14 and 15 years old turned out, and all completed the course. The first boy in received a badge. The trail was laid. by Private Wallace, the battalion champion of the 4th Middlesex Regiment, and P. G. Elsey, R.A.M.O., and it extended over a distance roughly of 7 miles of heavy ground soddened by a downpour of rain overnight.

"A pack of thirty-eight left McGrigor Barrack Square at 10.40 a.m., and proceeded across the Long Valley, making a tour round the racecourse, across the Basingstoke Canal, past Cody's aeroplane sbed, the Reservoir, Army airship garage, and back to barracks via Farnborough Road. The run home was really a half-mile neck-to-neck race between Privates' Smith and Skipper. They were waiting on each other, and when 40 yards from the winning post both spurted for first place. Skipper gained a yard on Smith. but when 10 yards from home stumbled, lurched against Smith, and fell heavily. On reaching the post Smith fell exhausted, and both men were assisted into the regimental baths, where they were promptly attended to. It was a splendid finish, and Skipper was unfortunate in losing when so near the prize. The return was as follows;-

Private Smith, 35 min. 15 sec. 1 Skipper, 35 min. 16 sec. 2 Button, 37 min. 55 sec. ';) Oox, 38 min, 20 sec. 4 Turner, 38 min. 23 sec. 5

He warmly complimented the competitors and also the committee upon the successful organization of the club, and trusted that many men would join. He urged the men to train steadily and not overdo it, and to have a bath and a change directly a race was over. He was pleased to pre­sent the prizes, and took the opportunity of complimenting Staff-Serjeant Merchant and Private Elsey on the success of their efforts.

NOTES FROM MALTA.-Serjeant-Major Oollard writes: "The Oorps in Malta during the present season have done exceedingly well in the football world, and the play has been well up to the standard of Aldershot soccer. At present we stand fifth on the Garrison League with 9 points against 13, and 11 of those above us. Yesterday we were to play the A. and S. Highlanders in the league, but owing to the absence of the official referee a friendly game was played, resulting in a win for 30 Oompany, 2 to nil, Lance-Oorporals Lewis and Tipping scoring for their side.

" These are well known in Aldershot, also vVhittaker, who is the centre forward. Oorporal Turner as outside right would be an acquisition to the Aldershot team.

"The team here is known. as the" Tabloids," taken particularly from Oorporal Talbot who is the mainstay of the defence; the half line is also known as the' T's ' (Taylor, Thain and Tipping). Oaptain Beaman has returned from leave, and isa welcome addition to the team. We have received a bye in the 1st round of the Governor's Oup and meet the R.G.A. Oentral, wbom we have already beaten in the league. Hopes run high.

"The Det. Serjeants' Mess at Valletta has moved into fresh quarters. Many may remember the old ophthalmic ward aRd dispensary; these have been re-appropriated to the new mess. There is to be a house warming on February 24 ; details of the event I hope to send later. ,

•. The training has been in progress for the last month, and is continuing this, for the purpose of practising the company in field work; the company is divided into four sections of thirty-seven each. The preliminary training takes place at Oottonera (Head­quarters), the advanced training will be at San Leonardo.

,. The pre~ent season has been particularly wet and cold, snow flurries were experi­enced on the Hth inst. The Festa of the Shipwreck of San Paul being to-day, the 10th, we hope now the weatber will turn. .

The Junior N.O.O.'s and men's dance club is particularly strong. The dances are held fortnightly, and every credit is due to the committee, particularly Privates Andre, Herbert, and Powel!. Our officers patronize the dance, and the warrant officers and senior N.O.O.'s join in the assembly. Preparations are being made to hold a quadrille party on St. Valentine's Day.

"Oaptain W. K. Beaman is posted to Forrest on return from leave. Oaptain J. B. G. Mulligan to Oottonera, Oaptain Marett to, Oottonera from leave, and Lieutenant Wright to Forrest.

"Quartermaster.Serjeant Jones to Imtarfa, Serjeant Gray to Oottonera, Serjeant Kirby to Valletta. '

" Serjeant Griggs is contemplating purchasing his discharge to farm in the U.S.A.

ROYAL ARMY MEDICAL COLLEGE. EXAMINATION FOR COMMISSION IN THE ROYAL ARMY MEDICAL CQRPS.

Medicine (Case for Commentary).-Wednesday, January 25, 1911. Commencing 10 a.m. Time allowed, III hours. Read your Instructions. .

W. L., aged 69, auctioneer, was admitted to hospital December 5, 1909. He gave the following history :-

When a child he believes that he suffered from an illnses which affected his throat, and was followed by 'difficnlty in swallowing, and some affection of the eyes. From this he recovered completely.

At the age of 20 he had an illness lasting two months, accompanied by swelling of both knee joints; the ankles were also involved, a swelling appeared above the heel, and his feet became flat. Recovery was apparently complete.

Three years before admission he suffered from pain in the abdomen, referred to a spot above and to the right of the umbilicns, and occurring some hours after food; and at intervals from attacks of vomiting. He never brought up blood, and did not observe the condition of nis motions. These symptoms continued for about six months.

Four months before admission a small lump appeared above the left clavicle; for a time this increased in size, but subsequently became smaller and of firmer consistence. About the same time he had pain in the right-hypochondriac region, and a swelling was noticed beneath the costal margin. He has been losing weight for the last four months. A week before admission he became jaundiced; this condition has persisted.

On examination a swelling was found in the right hypochondrium, moving freely with respiration; to the left of the middle line of the abdomen, but on a rather lower level, was another swelling, which appeared to be distinct from that first mentioned; it did not move with respiration. In the left supra-clavicular fossa an indurated nodular mass was found; this was not tender on pressure, but pain was complained of in that region, and at times down the left arm. The percussion note over the manubrium was wanting in resonance. The arterial walls were thickened; the second sound; at the base over the aortic valves, was accentuated.

Vocal fremitus was diminished at the base of the left lung, and the breath sounds there were feeble; a few crepitant rales were audible at the right base. The urine was normal.

Subsequent Coune of the Illness.-The jaundice persisted; he continued to lose weight, although very slowly; the abdominal swellings increased in size, but that in the neck diminished. He died on March 22, 1910, with symptoms of biliary toxremia.

Comment on the diagnosis of the various affections from which this patient suffered. State what treatment you would have adopted in each illness, and what conditions you would have expected to find on autopsy after that which proved fatal.

Surgery . . (Case for Commentary.)-Wednesday, January 25, 1911. Commencing 11.30 a.m. Time allowed, 1~ hours. Read your instructions.

A woman, aged 30, was admitted to hospital with the following history:-Six years previously she had been an inmate for three weeks suffering with vomiting

and hrematemesis. On two previous occasions she had also had attacks of hrema­temesis. During the six years she had also attended the hospital as an out-patient with gastric symptoms. 8he was suddenly taken ill with pain in the epigastrium, which was made much worse by taking anything by the mouth or by breathing deeply. About two or three hours afterwards vomiting commenced; diarrhrna with offensive motions was noticed about the same time. A little later the pain was felt in the right hypochondrium and epigastrium, and she became short of breath. Vomiting and diarrhrna were continuous until her admission to the hospital. Fifteen days after she was taken ill, her condition was as follows :-

There was a rounded' tympanitic swelling in the epigastrium and extending to the right hypochondrium. The liver dulness was ohliterated. Respiratory movements at the tJase of the right lung were diminished. There was dulness at the right base posteriorly as high as the tenth rib and the margin of dulness shifted forward 3~ inches on rolling the patient from her left side on to her back.

When turned on to her face the dulness of the right base was diminished. Further, when turned on to her right side the right half .of the resonant swelling in the right hypochondrium and epigastrium' became dull. The air entry on the right' side of the chest was markedly diminished, especially at the base, and was absent over the dull are ft. Vocal resonance was diminished at the rigbt base. The apex beat was in the fourth interspace, ~ inch outside the nipple. Pulse ranging from 96 to 102; temperature irregular, the highest evening being 100·4°F. Examination of the blood showed leucocytosis, white corpuscles 16,532, the increase being in the polymorpho­nuclear cells. An operation was performed on the sixteenth day of her illness; pus was found and the collection drained. Bacteriologically the pus contained the Bacillzts pyocyaneus in pure culture. The patient improved at first, but subsequeutly went gradually downhill; and died thirty-seven days after the commencement of her illness. In addition to other changes at the site of the operation, a collection of" pus was found on the outer side of the Cfficum and ascending colon.

Discuss the diagnosis, also the operative procedure adopted in the treatment of the case. I •

Explain the source of the collection of pus found after death on the outside of the cfficum, and which was the chief cause of the fatal result.

EXAMINATION OF CAPTAINS FOR PROMOTION TO lVfAJOR.

Hygiene (for class).~(Written.) Monday, January 30, 1911. From 10a.m. to 1 p.m.

(1) It is decided to form a military station at a place where the only available source of water supply is the rainfall. .

What information would you need to enable you to arrive at an idea of the amount available from this source? What are the chief sources of impurity in such a supply, and how would you guard against them? Would you anticipate the bacterial content to be large or otherwise?

(2) Describe in detail the absorption and metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. It is desired to design a ration supplying 5,000 calories, and the amount of protein is fixed at 200 grammes. How would you supply the remaining energy required? And what would guide you in settling the respective proportions of the two proximate principles? What ~actual food-stuffs would you select, and, speaking roughly, in what quantities?

(NOTE.--1 gramme of protein or carbohydrate = 4'1 gramme of fat = 9'3 calories.) (3) How would you remove and dispose of the coarse and fine suspended matters of

a domestic sewage? How does the problem of sewage disposal in barracks differ from that in a civil community?

(4) In what does disinfection consist? In the case of a barrack room which has been occupied by a man suffering from scarlet fever, what are the matters requiring disinfection, and what method would you adopt? How does a barrack room differ from a married quarter with regard to this question?

(5) When performing the bacteriological analysis of a water sample, after the concentration of the organisms present by means of alum and plating on neutral red bile-salt lactose agar, you find that. besides a few red colonies, a numher of colourless ones grow up. Discuss' the probable nature of these organisms, and describe how you would proceed to verify your opinion as to the class to wbich they belong.

Hygiene (for Class).-(Practical). Tuesday, January 31, 1911. }<"rom 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

(1) Examine the sample before you and state whether you would approve of its issue to patients in hospital. Give reasons for your decision and state also how, in your opinion, the sample came to give such figures on analysis.

'lIRE ARMY MEDICAL OFFICERS' WIDOWS' AND ORPHANS' FOND.

(FOUNDED BY SIR JAME5 MCGRIGOR IN THE YEAR AFTER WATERLOO.)

New rules having been adopted in 1906, the attention of officers of the Corps who wish to make some provision for their widows and orphans, on the most advantageous terms, is invited to the benefits now offered by the above Fund, the strong financial position of which will be seen from the balance sheet.

Under these rules, owing to the large accumulated fund, and economical manage. ment on mutual principles, an officer can provide an annuity for his widow and orphans at a very moderate annual outlay. ,

The benefit provided by the Society to the subscriber's widow, under his marriage subsisting at the' date of commencement of his subscription as a married member, is £50 per annum during widow hood, with the continuance of the annuity, during re-marriage of the widow or after her death, to the child or children of the said mar­riage until such child, or the youngest of such children, shall have attained the age of 21 years. 1<'urthermore, should the wife of the subscriber predecease him, it will be optional for him to continue until his death the subscription he had been paying as a

A detailed table of rates of subscription will be found at the end of the rules, of which some illustrative examples are here given :--

Husband's age Wife's age

25 20 25 25 30 25 30 30 35 30 35 35 40 35 40 40 45 40 45 45 50 45 50 50

If the disparity in age be less the rate of subscription is proportionately lower. Where the wife is the elder it is still further. decreased. '

These terms cover all war and climate risks, and there are no marriage fines for members now joining.

There is a class of unmarried members who pay £2 a year. They are allow.ed the equivaleut (in terms of Table B in the rules) of the total of their subscriptious, at com­pound interest, by way of reduction of their annual SUbscriptions when becoming married members.

At the last quinquennial valuation of the assets aud liabilities' of the Society, as at December 31,1905, the Actuary reported that .. the financial position of the Society was eminently satisfactory" ; the valuation balance sheet showing a net surplus of £64,390 after providing for annuities, immediate and contingent, to all widows of members. At that date the funds of the Society amounted to £125,400, On December 31, 1909, it will be seen from the balance sheet that they had increased to £133,000, and that of this sum £118,000 is invested in Government, and the remainder in trust securities.

Provision is made (Rule X.) whereby the surplus at any quinquennial valuation may be applied for the benefit of members, or their widows or orphan children.
