1. The theory of electrical conductance of colloidal suspensions has been extended to cover the case of ellipsoids with three axes different.

2. The results have been applied to suspensions of ellipsoidal erythrocytes of birds.

3. It has been shown that fluctuations in electrical resistance of suspensions of erythrocytes after stirring are due to streaming orientation of the cells.

4. The theory has been extended to cover four cases of orientation and tested experimentally in specially designed flow cells by electrical and optical methods.

5. Application of the flow method to the study of the shape of colloidal particles is discussed.
