“The lines may be straight or curved, which is usually the case, or crooked, zigzag, or step like. Occasionally they extend wave-like through several adjacent and parallel fibers. ¶ In quite a few cases typical segmentation producing larger or smaller segments with mostly clean-cut ends occurs in smaller or larger foci and not generally throughout the parts examined. In some of these specimens the cement-lines are visible about the foci of dissociation...” (Fig. 2)...
