TO THE EDITOB. Sib,—lt was with very great pleasure that I noted the inauguration of a course of lectures by the Otago Ambulance Association ; and if I might venture to make one or two suggestions I believe their adoption would tend to increase the good work which will no doubt be done. I would, firstly, propose to the Executive the issuing of a certificate of proficiency when the course of lectures has attained completion. At the termination of the lectures delivered in the Town Hall last year, an examination was held, and it is something similar which I would suggest in the present instance. I might also point out that advantages would accrue from the issuing of tickets for single lectures—some have not the time to attend the whole course, and therefore object to the taking out of a full ticket. I trust that our society will see its way to become affiliated with the St. John's Ambulance Association. The advantages wonld be manifold. A certificate issued by this organisation receives a recognition in almost ai?y part of the world. Christchurch possesses a branch, why should not we ?—I am, etc., Pibst Aip,. Dunedin, July 4.
