Both ears of 100 young healthy candidates for Submarine Service, aged 17-23 years, normal by otoscopy but otherwise unselected, were given Bekesy-type audiometry through 18 kiloHertz. Minimum audible pressures in the ear canal were obtained comparable to those from a published study on adolescent males there is also correspondence with the British 1954 Standard for young adults up to 15 kiloHertz. It is suggested that the time is approaching for International Standardizing of audiometry in the octave 10-20 kiloHertz using all available data.
