Much has been written concerning the validity of the so-called "blood-grouping tests" in bastardy and other legal proceedings. The general tenor of the writings is in favor of wider acceptance by the courts of the results of these tests. This comment is to be no exception. However, it is the purpose here to emphasize the scientific validity of the blood-grouping tests and to acquaint the reader with the theory upon which the tests rest. If lawyers and judges understand the scientific basis of the tests, a more intelligent decision upon the validity of any given result can be formed, and the weight which should be given to the results of the tests can be more readily determined.
