January 26, 1926.

a. Dr. L. Pierce Clark: The Phantasy Method of Analysing Narcissistic Neuroses.

This paper dealt with an innovation in psycho-analytic technique adapted particularly for the treatment of the narcissistic neuroses. Dr. Clark supplemented his paper with the presentation of opinions expressed by a number of psycho-analysts who discussed his views at the last International Psycho-analytic Congress. A brief abstract of Dr. Clark's thesis appeared in the INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF PSYCHO-ANALYSIS, Volume VII., Part 1, January, 1926, p. 124.

b. Dr. Adolph Stern: Clinical Note on a Case of Anxiety-Hysteria.

For the first six weeks of analysis the patient in Dr. Stern's case seemed to present material dealing solely with the pre-oedipus level. Dr. Stern requested the opinion of other members as to the frequency of such a situation. Several expressed opinions that such occurrences were not uncommon.

At the business session a resolution on the death of Dr. Karl Abraham of Berlin was submitted by Dr. S. E. Jelliffe and unanimously adopted by the Society.

The following officers were elected for the year 1926.

President: Dr. A. A. Brill.

Vice-President: Dr. Leonard Blumgart.

Secretary-Treasurer: Dr. Albert Polon.

Council: Drs. C. P. Oberndorf, S. E. Jelliffe, Adolph Stern.

February 23, 1926.

a. Dr. A. A. Brill: Annual Address of the President-elect.

This address dealt with certain problems confronting the psychoanalyst in his practice and in his position before scientific societies. Dr. Brill stressed the desirability and importance of selecting those patients whose ultimate aim is to become practising analysts very carefully with reference to their character integrity. He also emphasized that the subject-matter of psycho-analytic papers read before the medical public should be of a suitable nature. He suggested that such papers deal with clinical material illustrating basic psycho-analytic principles rather than consist of theoretical expositions of psycho-analytic innovations.
