TitleReferee's report by Henry Crozier Keating Plummer, on a paper 'On the independence of sums of squares in the analysis of variance' by S S Wilks
Date[December 1933]
DescriptionSectional Committee: Mathematics

Not recommended for publication in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London'. Finds the paper more suited to a journal of statistics. 'Acceptance might prove dangerous by encouraging a class of paper "elaborating points of detail". In the present case I doubt if the positive merits of the work overcome this objection'.
