RATAN DASGUPTA, *Indian Statistical Institute*

SUMMARY. Squareness of a job with circular face is defined to be the amount of projection of the face on the axis of the job. In ideal situation the plane of the face is perpendicular to the axis and the squareness equals zero. Under simple assumptions it is shown that the distribution of squareness is of the form K| X+ m | where K > 0, -µ < m < µ and X is a normal deviate. Some data sets are analysed by the model
