Ted,

Yes, indeed, this is a screen-copy from the Macdonell paper scanned in JSTOR. As you have guessed we (Anne-Béatrice Dufour and mylself) have entered the data, checked that margins were consistent, and converted height in cm.

We were planning to use this for teaching: a practical under R to reproduce Student's original experiment, but we didn't have the time up to now to write the handout.

Best,

Jean
