Sfaqile MathciMties TdU Boy's Hei^t At 18 Friday Rifes BT IHMiOS AMITil VflHcdl Pp69fl 9istesc# fidtl^ f NCW YOER, Dee. IS — A matheniRtlcally mitkiefl baby doctor has flgnred ont that if you measure the height of a two-year-old boy and then multiply by two, you'll know how tall he will be when he Is It. Weigh him and multiply his «eiKht by five, and that will be his weight at ]8. Or take his "pelvic breadili" multiply by two, a?Ki you'll have the width of his Dcam when he attains the status of young adult. For girl babies, the mathematics of growth and development as calciilalcd by Dr. Irving Kowal off of Brooiilyn, were a little different, loi' height, and weight they were and five times height and wciglit at eighteen months. For 'polvic breadth" it was the same OS tor boys — twice the width at two year.s. Not Precisely Accurate Dr. Kovvaloff did not claim that these multiplications would be precisely accurate ta every case — he claimed only "a high degree of probaWUty." "In tb« studying and teaching of tha subjeet of growth and development," h« said in reporting to the tMlMtflif ^nal of the Medical ttoaMr of «he State of New York, •Sll^ l| fcnpMMed by the many regularities of the process of de-) velopment in both flie phy.sical and psychologic spheres." He needed only basic statistics from which to work out formulas which would be generally applicable. The old statistics on the heights and weights of growing children were too old - I hey were taker 35 years ago, and since then the average height and weight of young adults have increased. He found what he needed in statistical studies of large numbers of children of (he Harvard School of Public Health and the University of Iowa. Having arrived at the babyhood ages when height, weight, and pelvic width were one half to one fifth that of eighteen .vear olders, he tried out hi.s formulas on the combined statistics. Of the boys, 97 percent were 37.2 inches tall at two years. By multiplying that by two, he predicted that these 97 percent should have been 74.4 inches tall at 18. Actually, the 97 percent were 73.9 inches tall at IB. So on height, his formula was off only one-half inch. On weight predicting for iDoys, the formula was off four and one-half pounds for 97 percent of the subjects. The closeness of his predictions for height and weight of girls and pelvic width for boys and girls with what actually happened, was comparable.
