Thirty-one of the leading Jewish neurologists and psychiatrists practicing in Palestine recently met and after discussing the position of mental patients in the land formed a Neurological and Psychiatric Association of Palestine.

Dr. Herrman was named president of the new organization. The physicians’ group decided to set up a psychiatric system for the Holy Land.

Michael H. Godefroi, accepting the post of Minister of Justice, became the first Jew to serve in a Dutch cabinet.
