The relative proportion of sweat ducts to hair folhcles varies greatly from region to region. The number of epidermal downgrowths appear in similar numbers in all of the main body regions; they, however, are met by a high number of dermal papillae only in the head, giving rise to a dense population of hair follicles. The difference in the regional frequency distribution of dermal hair papillae, it seems, is very high even in the earliest stages of fetal development. The relatively tow number of such papillae, combined with a high rate of expansion of the body surface in the trunk and extremities is the reason for a low density of hair follicles.
In the upper half of the follicle, these cells become hyalinized, their nuclei disappear, and the mature cuticle adheres to the cells of the cortex. The inner sheath must grow at the same rate as the hair, or faster. If the cuticle cells of the inner sheath moved upward faster than those 56 WILLIAM MONTAGNA AND EUGENE J. VAN SCOTT of the hair, they could pull the lateral borders of the cuticle cells of the cortex in an upward position and reorient them; other factors, how ever, could bring about these movements.
