1. 1. Experiments were carried out in the domestic goose to determine the influence of several diuretics on the rate and composition of the salt gland secretion. 2. 2. The design of the experiment was such that the animals were maintained in positive salt and water balance. 3. 3. Chlorothiazide had no significant influence on salt gland secretion nor its composition. 4. 4. Both ethacrynic acid and furosemide significantly reduced secretion to about half without any change in its composition. 5. 5. These data are consistent with the hypothesis that in the goose salt gland secretion may involve a chloride pump. 6. 6. Isotonic volume expansion initiated a significant, although transient, salt gland secretion.
