In an attempt to explain the mechanism of hemorrhage in artificially induced fever, studies of capillary resistance by means of the suction test were made on 12 subjects, three of whom were used twice, making a total of 15 observations.

Giles, Harvey and Dampere,1 in a study of the effect of exogenous heat on rabbits, saw marked focal hemorrhages in the viscera and central nervous system on examination of the non-surviving
