The Darwin-Pauli treatment of the electron is applied to the Schroedinger equation for a two electron system. The results show that the division into singlets and triplets is justified only as a limiting case. Expressions are derived which give the position of the levels, the Zeeman effect pattern, and the intensities of the lines when the division into singlet and triplet cannot strictly be made. These expressions are shown to give the observed facts of several spectra.
