THE SCIENTIFIC MONTHLY v

Thotographic Plates for Use in

Spectroscopy and Astronomy"

FI-F TH EDITION

Anew, fully revised edition of this well-known publication is now available. In it are listed

the characteristics of the special plates for scientific work which are made in the Kodak Research Labo- ratories. There are over one hundred kinds of these plates, distributed among seven basic types of emul-

siori, each carefully prepared to provide desirable combinations of speed, contrast, granularity, and resolving power. They are sensitized in various ways to permit photography in spectral regions ranging from the short-wave-length ultraviolet to the infra- red at 12,000A.

A copy of the new edition of the booklet will be sent free upon request.

She Still Has '"The Voice With A Smile"

War traffic keeps her busier than ever but she manages to keep calm and pleasant.

She still has "The Voice With A Smile" even when the lights are thick on the Long Distance switchboard and the circuits are crowded. Even when she has to ask you to-

"Please limit your call to 5 minutes. Others are waiting.", That's to help everybody get better service and you couldn't

ask for a better reason than that.

Finger Prints, Palms and Soles An Introduction to Dermatoglypkics

By HAROLD CUMMINS, Ph.D. Professor of Microscopic Anatomy, Tulane University School of Medicine

and CHARLES MIDLO, M.D. Associate Professor of Microscopic Anatomy, Tulane University

The science of dermatoglyphics is of importance besides its use in personal identification, in studying differential trends among races, between the sexes and among constitutional types. It also elucidates various morphological principles, including bodily symmetry. Some traits of the dermatoglyphics are heritable hence they are useful in recognizing the types of twins and have promise of application in cases of questioned paternity. With these and related topics forming its central theme, the present volume is designed to fill the need for a comprehensive treatise on the subject in which the latest knowledge and progress is incorporated. Presenting valuable data on a much neglected phase of human biology, the book will interest anatomists, physical anthropologists, geneticists and zoologists.

The text is arranged in three parts: Historical Background and a General Orientation of the Field; Methods and Description; Fundamental Biological Phases of Dermatoglyphics.

INTRODUCTION TO FOODS & NUTRITION

By Sherman & Lanford This new text was especially prepared for war-time courses. It provides practical information on the planning and preparation of daily meals as well as on the essentials of nutrition. Problems of meal-planning under rationing conditions are dealt with, and the best allocation of the food budget is explained. Full tables of food values are given in the appendix.

292 pages. $2.00

___ LABORATORY PRACTICE OF ORGANIC CHEMISTRY

Revised Edition. By G. R. Robertson The unusually full and clear discussion of theory which distinguished the first edition of this text has been further clarified and expanded in this new edition. Many new experiments have been added, in- cluding about a dozen entirely new ones not found in other com- parable manuals.

3 69 pages. $2.50

__________ Textbook of QUANTITATIVE INORGANIC ANALYSIS

Revised Edition. By Kolthoff & Sandell This text, long noted for its comprehensive and thorough treatment of quantitative analysis, is now brought completely up-to-date. Among the many new improvements are the extensive discussions of modern abridged spectrophotometry and errors in analytical chemistry; a complete list of oxidation-reduction indicators with oxidation potentials; and comprehensive discussions of electrometric titrations and the properties of precipitates, coprecipitation post- precipitation and aging.

794 pages. Illustrated. $4.50
