Introductory Remarks of the President.—This is the second of the midyear meetings of the American Psychoanalytic Association. A similar midyear meeting last year was so successful that it was thought expedient to repeat it, and it is hoped that the members will join freely in the discussion of the various papers. So rapid has been the progress of psychoanalysis in both its individual and societal aspects, that one meeting a year no longer seems sufficient to cover the annual progress.
