Prof. Russell H. Chittenden, the direc
tor of the school who conducted the
experiments and who read Wednes
day's paper, mado tho statement that
the average healthy man cats from two
to three times as much as he needs to
keep him In perfect physical and men
tal health and vigor. Prof. Chittenden
said three classes of men were experi
mented on, several professors at tho
school, Including Prof. Chittenden him
self, several students and a squad of
United States soldiers. There was a
gradual reduction of meat and other
proteid- foods with llttlo If any In
crease In Btarch and other foods In
nearly all the tests. No fixed regimen
was required In any case, the endeavor
being to satisfy tho appctlto of each
subject. In only one case was meat
entirely eliminated from the diet. At
the end of the experiments, which last
ed from six months until nearly n year
and were concluded only a few days
ago, the entlro lot of men who had
been Prof. Chittenden's subjects were
In tho best of health. Their weight
In some cases was almost exactly tho
same as when the experiments were
begun and In somo slightly lower.
Their bodily vigor was greater and
their strength was much greater, par
tially owing to their regular physical
exercises during tho experiments and
partially owing, Prof. Chittenden be
lieves, to the less amount of food eat
en. The dally consumption of food at
the close of tho experiments was much
lass than the recognized standard and
from a third to half as much as the
average man cats.
