Statistical and graphic evaluation led to the concl sion that 100 oxygen probably has no effect on performance of this task. I F IT DO S HAVE AN EFFECT, IT IS AT MOST BARELY DET CTABL ONE. There are no indications of gross disorganization, marked retardation, or of failure to follow instructions under the influence of pure o ygen. A UTHOR
