Letter from Leonidas H. Berry to Dr. Lynn A. Ferguson, secretary-general,

American College of Gastroenterology, Grand Rapids, Michigan, objecting to the selection of New Orleans as the location of the 1958 meeting because attendance at the meeting will be subject to racial discrimination by state and local law, and that if it is the policy of the organization to hold meetings in such places then he takes it to mean that his membership is no longer welcome; asks for the organization to amend its articles to not hold future meetings in places that practice discrimination
