Surgery. The report * of this Board was so important and so instruc-
tive that it had wide influence at the time not only among those con-
cerned with military and naval affairs, but among civilian groups.
Captain Phelps, as the medical member, naturally was of great service
in conducting the Board studies and enquiries and in preparing
the report.

The Committee on Award presents this Honorary Life Membership
in the American Social Hygiene Association in recognition of Captain
Phelps' service to humanity and in appreciation of his years of active
cooperation in promoting the work and ideals for which the
Association stands. W. F. S.
