    DURING last March, Prof. E. D. Adrian, professor of physiology in the University of Cambridge, paid a visit to the Argentine at the invitation of the Argentine National Academy of Medicine. He was welcomed with much cordiality and was frequently assured of the sympathy of Argentine medical men and scientific workers for the Allied cause. Towards the end of his visit, Prof. Adrian was asked to receive a deputation from the Comisión Sanitaria Argentina de Ayvda a las Democracias (Health Committee to Aid Democratic Countries). This deputation asked Prof. Adrian to convey a message of solidarity to members of the medical profession and scientific men in Great Britain. The Committee said that the example set by British men of science working in their laboratories and clinics, holding congresses even in war-time to promote the application of scientific discovery to the progress of mankind, and arranging the co-ordination of the scientific work of Great Britain, the U.S.S.R. and the United States, strengthens their faith in the triumph of democracy through science. This very cordial message from the Argentine will be received with much satisfaction by scientific workers in Great Britain, who will be encouraged to pursue the course they have set for themselves in helping to rid the world of totalitarianism.
