Table 8.--Summary of labyrinth statistics, taken from monitor study--Analysis of labyrinth findings on 77 monitors at Third Aviation Instruction Center--Continued. Examinations made between Sept. 16 and Nov. 27, 1918. Lowest age 20, highest age 30. No. 420 was 20 years. No. 418 was 30 years. All general physical examinations showed normal findings except No. 430, classified B for general physical instability. All eye examinations normal. All nasal examinations normal except No. 105; tonsil operation advised. No. 317 advised nasal treatment. No. 333 deviated septum. No. 351 deviated septum: operation advised when convenient. No. 122 neurological examinations all normal as to personality. No. 419 stale. No. 122 not aggressive.
