Our attention has been called to the fact that in the article entitled 'A Bone Plate Which Will Not Break or Bend' by Dr. George W. Hawley and Dr. Ralph D. Padula, published in the April issue of The Journal (Vol. XX, page 469), reference should have been made to the following:
Souttar, H. S.: A Method for the Mechanical Fixation of Transverse Fractures. Ann. Surg., LVIII, 653, 1913.
Speed, Kellogg: A Discussion of Pott's Fracture with Complications: Based on a Series of 208 Cases. Surg. Gynec. Obstet., XIX, 73, 1914.
Speed, Kellogg: A Text-Book of Fractures and Dislocations with Special Reference to Their Pathology, Diagnosis and Treatment. Ed. 1. Philadelphia, Lea & Febiger, 1916.
The authors wish to acknowledge the priority of the principle of the flange plate which is presented in these articles. The omission of reference to them was entirely due to an oversight and is regretted by the authors.
