Abstract : The paper deals with the same problem and the same conjectured solution to it which was considered in Samuels (Ann. of Math. Statistics, 1966). Section 2 contains a restatement of the problem. Section 3 contains a simpler proof of the conjecture for n = or < 3 and, for the first time, a proof for n = 4. Section 4 contains what is essentially a simpler proof of Theorem 5.1 of Samuels (Ann. of Math. Statistics, 1966). Section 5 contains proof that the conjecture is true for large lambda. (Author)
