To the Editor. DEAR SIR: I am most happy to take advantage of your suggestion that 1 write a letter summarizing my impressions of the papers presented at the New York meeting on fatigue, with particular reference to my paper in the January issue (on the Mechanism of Fatigue). As you know, I did not attend this meeting and therefore cannot give you a complete review, including the discussions. Furthermore, it has been impossible to read all of the 69 papers that I recently received. However, I have reviewed the ten papers on Basic Studies and have had the privilege of discussing these at some length with Dr Maxwell Gensamer, who was chairman of this part of the session. Since you will undoubtedly publish a detailed review of all the papers, I shall not attempt to treat them individually, but will simply describe what I believe to be the present situation regarding the theory of fatigue.
