The method of analysis is slightly different; that is, regression lines were fitted by the correlation technic instead of by two simultaneous equations, as in the former study.2 In general the results have not been materially changed by including data on twenty-three additional cases. The data for boys and girls are not analyzed separately in this report, since it was demonstrated in the former report that there was no significant
