It is desirable to determine what traits of bodily and mental sort, what diseases and anomalies in mankind are hereditary; according to what laws they are transmitted from one generation to the other; how far external influences that may act in inhibiting or accelerating fashion must be taken into consideration, and many other points. The plan of the [umlaut over capital 'U']niversit[umlaut over 'a']t Institut f[umlaut over 'u']r Erbbiologie und Rassenhygiene, which occupies the second floor of the People's Hygiene House, shows a larger and a smaller lecture hall and a series of rooms for investigation, for the director and assistants, for library, for archives, for special investigators and also clinical rooms, about sixty-two rooms in all, mostly, however, of small size. Some idea of the interior is given in Fig. 2. The Eugenical News extends best wishes to Dr. O. Freiherr von Vershcuer for the success of his work in his new and favorable environment.
