Because it represents the first attempt to utilize the likelihood-ratio method. in the nonparametric eas:e, the modified likelihood-ratio test of Wolfowitz is of considerable theoretical interest. Though the test was originally proposed by J. Wolfowitz in 1942, up to the present its properties have not been investigated. The purpose of the present study is to investigate the test to discover alternatives under which it is consistent and to compare it with other nonparametric two-sample tests. [TRUNCATED]
