failure. I took two or three photographs. (See figs. 63 to 67.) 
I found that no description had been published of the gasometers which 
he was using but they seemed to be rather clever. 
Franz Müller is much interested in the metabolism of children. 
He has a place near the North Sea where he is studying the influence 
of climate on metabolism. He studies the intake and output for a 
number of weeks, also the output of nitrogen, sulphur, phosphorus, 
chlorine, etc. He says that he feeds the children the equivalent 
of 4000 calories per day when in the North Sea region, as they are 
running about actively all day long. This is an enormous calorie 
requirement and is based solely upon the amount of food fed to the 
children. I am not sure that this amount is actually controlled. 
It may be simply the amount of food purchased. 
Franz Müller impressed me as being by far the most genial and 
companionable of Suntz’s assistants but I was not very favorably 
impressed with the accuracy of his work.
