*Based on work done while on the staff of the Department of Clinical Medicine, University of Cape Town. **Based on work done while on the staff of the Natal Education Department. The incidence of postural proteinuria has been shown to rise from approximately I: 3 in the 6-9 year age group to approximately 3: 4 in the 14-16year age period and then to fall away to approximately 1 : 10 in old men. No correlation has been found between postural proteinuria and sthenic or asthenic build. No correlation has been found between postural proteinuria and the state of nutrition.
* From the thesis accepted for the degree of M.Ch., University of Cape Town, 1947. An analysis of results in I I I cases of peripheral nerve injury is presented. Details are given of the follow-up system, as well as the standards of assessment of recovery. Illustrative cases are descriptionbed and discussed. 30.6% of the cases recovered spontaneously. Results in individual nerves are given.
A total of 212 composite samples of milk distributed for consumption on the Witwatersrand were submitted to whey agglutination tests. Brucella agglutinins were present in 70 per cent. Of 92 samples of milk subjected to a biological test for Brucella organisms, three yielded positive results. Agglutinins were present in the serum to a titre of I: 40 in three of 200 normal blood donors in one to a titre of I: 20 and in four to a titre of I : 10. It is suggested that a diagnostic titre of I : 100 be used on the Witwatersrand as indicative of active infection.
