An addre3a before the Naturhistorisch-medizinischer Verein at Heidelberg. 
At the invitation of Professor Kossel I gave a lecture to a very large 
and interested audience on the evening of Hay 14, 1923, on the general work 
of the Nutrition Laboratory, with special reference, however, to the new 
respiration apparatus of the student form and the clinical applications of 
basal metabolism. It v/as very stimulating to see this large lecture room in 
the hall filled with a most interested, quiet, appreciative audience, 
chiefly of physicians and biôchemists, and I felt as if the visit there had 
been well repaid by getting in touch with these men and giving them the 
newest returns from the Nutrition Laboratory's scientific activities. 
'7ith the financial instability which characterized Heidelberg as well 
as the rest of Germany, it seemd very difficult to think of scientific 
research going on very actively for some time to come. The problem of 
feeding the children was very great. The question of milk supply was very 
difficult. It could be brought from Switzerland only with great difficulty 
and at a high price.

Professor Von Noorden. 
3y previous arrangement a visit was made to the sanitarium at 
Frankfurt, which is a very modern and apparently highly organized and very 
successful sanitarium. A great deal of basal metabolism work was being 
done regularly. They are using the Krogh apparatus. I discussed many 
matters with Professor Von Noorden. He was especially very keen about the 
matter of insulin and explained he had had some difficulties in getting 
the proper committee formed for the handling and manufacture of insulin 
in Germany, setting forth some of his disagreements with his colleagues 
in extenso. I was a little surprised that, dealing with diabetes, he did 
not determine his basal metabolism with an apparatus giving the respiratory
