Advisory Committee Will Present Formal Invitation for State Meet

The twenty-first annual reunion and the convention of the New Jersey State Elks Association will be held in Camden next June if efforts of the advisory board of' Camden Lodge of Elks are successful at the state meeting in Newark on June 15, 16 and 17.

Members of the advisory board for the local lodge, who are past exalted rulers of the Camden lodge, will present the invitation to hold the 1934 meeting in Camden, at the twentieth reunion and convention in Newark.

Members of the lodge have adopted a resolution confirming the action of the advisory board and plans were made to set the necessary machinery in motion to bring the 1934 convention to Camden. It was pointed out that Camden Elks have the largest home in the state.

Samuel Kilpatrick, the oldest past exalted ruler of the lodge, is head of the advisory board, and Harry G. Robinson, youngest past exalted ruler, is delegate to the state association, which is composed of past exalted rulers of all Elks lodges in New Jersey. 

Although the state association was formed in Camden, there has never been a reunion or convention of the association held here, it was pointed out.

The outstanding feature of each annual convention is the mammoth sessions, with thousands of Elks in line. It is estimated the parade would draw more than 50,000 persons to Camden, if the local lodge's invi­tation is accepted.

The Camden lodge is sending the band and patrol to Newark for the parade, which will start at 7 p. m. on June 17. Arrangements are being made to have the largest delegation in the parade represent Camden.

Dr. Lippincott Denounces 'Quack' Medical Broadcasts;
N. J. Society Elects Quigley
Camden Man Retires as President at Shore Convention
New York Man Discusses Economic Prob­lems of Profession

Atlantic City, June 7.- An assault on "quack" medical advice broadcast by radio was made today by Dr. A. Haines Lippincott, of Camden, who retired as president of the Medical Society of New Jersey. The society is holding its 167th annual meeting at the Cha1fonte-Haddon Hall.

He was succeeded by Dr. Frederick J. Quigley, of Union City. Other officers elected were; Dr. Marcus W. Newcomb, of Browns Mills, and Dr. Francis R. Haussling, of Newark, vice presidents; Dr. J. Bennett Morrison, of Newark, secretary, and Dr. Edward J. Marsh, of Paterson, treasurer.

Calls Code Their Guide

 "The code of the profession has been our guide during the past year and the road is strewn with the corpses of men who have given their lives for the further advancement and protection of the professions," said Dr. Lippincott.

"Medical advancement has been greater in the last quarter-century than in any other field of endeavor. When things crash about our heads and calamities in business reach tragic proportions, the profession has gone on its way unmindful of material things.

"Medicine gives a sense of security unequaled by any other profession. Despite opposition, we have fought to safeguard the health of the state. I recommend that we censor 'quack' medical radio programs so that the nauseating after effects could be cur­tailed. I request the society to take action to meet this challenge."

In speaking of the work done by the legislative committee, he told of the attempt to put through the Legislature laws in reference to control for those desiring to specialize in certain branches.

"It is not for the politicians to decide but for the profession," he said in lauding the committee for defeating the bills which, he declared, were inadequate.

The committee on education, he re­called, drew up plans for satisfactory substitute legislation. ,

New Yorker Speaks

The principal address tonight was made by Dr. William H. Ross, for­mer president of the New York State· Medical Society, who discussed the profession's economic problems.

"Medicine has a product the world needs and part of the world cannot get enough of it because they can­not pay for it," he said.

"The whirl of theory of how to correct the economic depression of commerce and industry and the eforts of the government to get out of the grip of post-war forces influ­ence payment of medical service. But of all problems facing the profession, we have only to deal with the problems of caring for the indigent and the large group of people near the relief class.

"The social function of medicine is more closely related to the social state of the people than ever before. The relation of medicine have come into bold relief in recent years, because of the growing health con­sciousness of the public and the changing attitude of society towards its responsibility for medical service and care for people who cannot afford to obtain it.

"The conservatism of medicine has kept the profession from fully grasping the tremendous effect of what is going on, and, their effect upon the service of the most vital necessity in the whole world. Medicine is faced by a great problem and the mass of us do not know it.

Public Is Confident

"Medicine still has the confidence of the public. If we can hold it through this crisis, the profession will be the most supreme social influence in the whole world.

"The services of medicine must be distributed by methods under the control of the profession itself. The public has awakened to the cost of medical care. It has passed beyond placing the responsibility on the physician, but is looking to them for a plan to meet the problem.

"Change the professional principals of earlier days into a scheme for paying the physician, which is in accord with the modern conditions under which he has to work. When the swirl of speculation and, theory subsides, we will again remain the great social factor and will influence civilization as it has always done.".
