It has been shown by Burkholder, McVeigh and Moyer,(1) by Barton-Wright,(2) and by Mather and Barton-Wright(3) that kernels of surgary maize are about twice as high in nicotinic acid as those of starchy maize. In the first-mentioned paper, kernels of a group of sugary strains were reported to average 34.6 micrograms of nicotinic acid per gram of tissue, as contrasted with 20.8 for starchy strains; in the last two papers the averages were 26.2 for sugary strains and 15.8 for starchy.

Beadle for making facilities available to carry out the assays, and to Dr. E. G. Anderson for suggesting the project in its present form. The desirability of measuring nicotinic acid in this genotypic series had been pointed out earlier by Dr. P. C. Mangelsdorf.
