This quantity is geared toward reading attainable relationships be­ tween organic time constitution and getting older and methods wherein those interrelationships can be tested by way of either the reasons of senescence and the administration of illnesses of the aged. the aim of the amount is to stir the pursuits of chronobiolo­ gists in gerontology and people of gerontologists and geriatricians in chronobiology.

Multiple components with multiple frequencies (some of which are circadian in period while others are synchronizable with a dicircadian period) will be critically important to the extent that one can specify when a desired state will occur, by the recording and interpretation of marker rhythm characteristics. Rhythms in tumor temperature have been used as a guide for the radiotherapy of cheek cancers and have made the difference between 70% and 80% regression of these human cancers. Pertinent (and probably costly) applied technical developments are now necessary whether one wishes to apply the pursuit of marker rhythms to a problem of aging or to the treatment of cancer timed according to rhythms, in young or old.
