I Communication from the Central Executive

M. Eitingon

Formation of a French Group

A Psycho-Analytical Society has been formed in Paris under the Presidency of Dr. R. Laforgue. The list of members contains, among others, several names which will be well known to our colleagues, viz., Fr. E. Sokolnicka, Dr. R. Loewenstein, Marie Bonaparte, Princesse de Grèce, Dr. Hesnard, Dr. Pichon, Dr. Allendy, Dr. Borel, Dr. C. Carchéminer. The newly-formed group has signified its intention of joining the International Psycho-Analytical Association. Its admission must be ratified by the next Congress.


In accordance with the resolution of the last Congress, the next, the tenth, will take place at Innsbruck (Austria), on September 1–3, 1927 (Thursday to Saturday). The wish expressed by vote taken in Homburg, 1925, that Congress should meet in some place on the Adriatic has proved to be impracticable, since most places there are too difficult of access for most members. On Wednesday, August 31st, the day before the Congress opens, the officials of the various branches of the Association and of the Psycho-Analytical Institutes will hold their usual preparatory business meeting in the morning. In the afternoon the International Training Committee is to meet.

Those who intend to read papers at the Congress are requested to give notice of them to Dr. Eitingon, not later than June 1st, and at the same time to send a short extract from their papers. These extracts will be printed, so as to serve as 'Leading Themes for the consideration of the Congress' and will be sent in good time to all who will take part in it.

Addendum to Report of the Homburg Congress

The 'Report of the Ninth International Psycho-Analytical Congress', which appears on pp. 119–144 of Vol. VII. (1926) of this JOURNAL, contains in the minutes of the business meeting the following (p. 142):

Dr. v. Ophuijsen proposed that the article concerned with 'Beirat' be struck out of the Statutes of the Association, and that instead a treasurer and two assessors should be co-opted to the General Executive. The President, Secretary and Treasurer should reside in the same place.
