Results of Chernoff-Savage (1958) and Govindarajulu-LeCam-Raghavachari (1966) are extended from the two-sample case to the general regression case and, simultaneously, the conditions on the scores-generating function are relaxed. The main results are stated in Section 2 and their proofs are given in Section 5. Sections 3 and 4 contain auxiliary propositions, on which the methods of the present paper are based. Section 6 includes a counterexample, showing that the theorem cannot be extended to discontinuous scores-generating functions.
