Kennedy and Thorndyke recognize, in their introductory paragraphs, that any contractions, having the ratio (1- υ2/C2) ½ : 1 are equally valid for explaining the original Michelson-Morley experiment, but restrict their attention to the unidirectional one in interpreting their result as "... proof of the relativity of time."
