In an attempt to settle the discrepancy between the resistivity measurements of Bridgman on the one hand and Tyndall and Hoyem (Phys. Rev. 38, p. 820; 1931) on the other, single zinc crystals of one square cm. cross section and ten cm. long have been grown and measured. The results are in agreement with Tyndall and Hoyem. Present indications are that certain anomalous crystals (i.e. not truly single) have abnormally low resistivities and show great sensitivity to slight strain. The technique of growing these large crystals will be described.
