Benedict, Francis Gano
tissue are greater than those of old tissue. He was familiar with the 
history of the surface-area law and stated that Rameaux was from Stras¬ 
bourg, and that the work of Rameaux is to be reprinted shortly in Andre" 
Mayer's new journal. He also stated that v. Hoesslin should have been 
accorded much more thought. He thinks that today there is too much 
writing and too little experimenting. He says that Terroine is today 
talking in terms of the older ideas, and that Terroine believes that the 
form is first and then the protoplasm is adjusted to it. Schaeffer 
trunks that the protoplasm is first and the form is adjusted to the needs. 
I mentioned the work of Przibram on rats with extreme modifications in 
tne growth of ears and length of tail, which he studied at 15° , 20° , and 
25 C. Schaeffer stated that Gley, before he became a physiologist, was 
a philosopher, and then went to experimental psychology. 
Schaeffer said that when the nerve is cut and the muscle of the leg 
becomes affected, the tissue three months later would be found by the 
Warburg method to have a low metabolism. He also thinks there is some 
recovery by repairing the nerve. He says it is very surprising that 
Richet, a gentleman, working in the laboratory, with utter absence of 
controls, should have successfully hit upon anaphylaxis. He also said 
that there was a man in Zurich who has a fine apparatus for measuring 
brain temperature. He thinks his name is. Cloetta (?) This man should 
be looked up on any subsequent visit to Zurich. 
I was interested to note that Schaeffer did not know that the pub¬ 
lications of the Carnegie Institution of Washington were on deposit in 
the library at the University. That brought to my mind the thought that 
we should write to all laboratory workers, giving them the addresses of 
tne different institutions in the town where the Carnegie publications 
could be found.
