Although I had studied the Hari respiration calorimeter several times 
before, I had never realized there were so few thermo-junction points 
between the two chambers and I could not understand why the chamber was 
painted black on the inside. Fearing that this would contribute toward 
insulation rather than free loss of heat I asked Hari, and he explained 
it as being an attempt to direct the heat along the metal so as to have 
the thermo-junction points all as equally affected by the heat as possible. 
The light was very poor as usual and my attempts to photograph 
things were most unsuccessful. (See figures /and ' ^) 
I had opportunity to talk with these two remarkable men a great deal. 
The conditions under which they work are very severe. I have the impression 
that the situation is a little better than it was four years ago, but the 
fact that several times an assistant brought in a bottle of urine that 
Hari had to analyze immediately or place one side for analysis later showed 
that he is still under the necessity of supplementing a very poor university 
salary by such analyses as he can make. On the other hand, one was lost 
in admiration of the fact that these men could do work at all under the 
conditions under which they had to work. As four years ago, I found 
Aszodi at the laboratory at early hours in the morning carrying out 
research and going home for private practice and consultation hours and 
then back again to do his reading and writing at night. There was one 
point brought to my attention when ffitri was talking, and that was that 
Hari ha? had to do all of the writing. I can understand that would be 
the case with many of his younger assistants, but I directly got the 
impression that in the case of Aszo'di the writing was done by Ha'ri. If 
this is the case it is going to make it very difficult for Aszddi to carry on. 
After conferring with Hdri and Aszo'di I decided it was not worth 
while to visit the Agricultural Institute presided over by Weiser.
