In previous reports1, 2 various diameters of normal and tuberculous male chests were compared. They showed that the tuberculous chest was more rounded, longer, and deeper than the normal chest, and that the vital capacity was about forty per cent greater in the healthy chest. In this paper the normal and tuberculous female chests will be compared. For normals, three hundred University of Minnesota girls were examined in the Spring of 1930 at the Women's Gymnasium. For tuberculous chests the data obtained on one hundred and thirty-three tuberculous women at Glen Lake Sanitorium, Oak Terrace, Minnesota was used.2
