During the past year, or rather during the period from September 1934 to September 1935, a number of papers dealing with audiometry have appeared. As observed during the past few years, it is again true that most of the papers dealing with functional testing of hearing have appeared in the English and American journals and very few in the German or French literature. All in all, the material which forms the substance of this review has not been as extensive during the past few years as was previously the case.
Langenbeck,1 in a short article, gives a few additional points to supplement a previous article which appeared in the same journal.2 He calls attention to the fact that Bezold carried out his quantitative hearing tests with the unweighted forks. He evidently did this because the tones of the Edelmann forks were heard longer when the fork was unweighted.
