That the nourishment of the mother during the period of gestation should affect the weight, vigor, general relative size, bone and skin (with covering) of the offspring is quite evident from the results of some recent experimental studies made by us. Dr. A.W. Dox and S.C. Guernsey of the Chemical Section arc working upon the chemistry of this problem in co-operation with the writer. Our work is being carried on with both sheep and swine in order that we may get a double set of records upon different species of animals.
