1. The greatest range of rotation of the right leg was forty-two and nine-tenths degrees; for the left, thirty-eight and seven-tenths degrees. The average range of rotation for the right was fifty and eight-tenths degrees; for the left, fifty-one and three-tenths degrees.

2. For right abduction the range was thirty-five and six-tenths degrees; for left, twenty-eight and five-tenths degrees. The average was thirty-six and three-tenths degrees and thirty-five and three-tenths degrees respectively.

3. No relation between the range of motion, either in abduction or rotation, and weight and height was established. The group measured was of relatively uniform weight and age.
