The best location for the distant electrode in obtaining precordial electrocardiograms is still a matter of dispute. Wilson, Johnston, Macleod and Barker1 have recommended for this purpose an electrode whose potential they believe remains practically at zero and, therefore, unlike other distant electrodes, does not affect the potentials of the precordial electrocardiogram. Evidence in support of the validity of the Wilson electrode has been presented by Eckey and Froehlich,2 Burger,3 and Burger and Wuhrmann,4 but Wolferth and Livezey5 do not accept the conclusions of Wilson and his associates. Precordial electrocardiograms made with the Wilson electrode have been compared with those
