The evaluation of the nutritional status of children by means of the various indexes of nutrition, particularly by weight-height tables, has been found to be unsatisfactory (Dublin and Gebhart1). These standard tables are based on measurement of large numbers of children at given age levels and in America include children of different racial inheritances as well as those from various economic levels. From time to time new tables are published, the standards in which are slightly higher than those of previous periods suggesting that the dissemination of the newer knowledge of nutrition is resulting in more nearly physically fit children.2 The inadequacy of these weight-height tables led von Pirquet3 to develop his "pelidisi" chart, a table of nutritional evaluations based on the relation of weight to sitting height: 3 √ 10 × the weight in grams = 100%. Children whose quotients sitting height in centimeters were below 95
