My object in presenting this paper is to relate the facts in connection with my observations and to call attention to the possible significance of yeast organisms in the sputa of doubtful lung cases.I am greatly indebted to the physicians of Pomona who have so kindly and generously cooperated with me in these investigations, and to Dr. Charles C. Browning of Los Angeles for consultation and suggestions in Case 7; to Dr. D. J. Davis of St. Luke's Hospital, Chicago, for his interest and valuable suggestions, and also to Dr. I. C. Herb of the Rush Medical College for assistance in translation of literature. I desire to express my deep appreciation for the ever ready and helpful interest shown by Dr. Stanley P. Black of Pasadena, whose wise counsel and advice have been a constant incentive to careful work.
