Abstract : Resistors are needed which will remain constant in value over a period of months with varying conditions of temperature and humidity. Victoreen resistors of the order of 10(exp 8) to 10(exp 11) ohms were tested for these characteristics as well as for changes due to continuous current and for polarization A means of eliminating changes due to humidity was tested on the resistors and on various insulators. This report gives results for the first three months of an investigation begun September 20, 1943.
