Meixner 's theorem, on the preservat ion of t he Onsager symmetry of phenomenological coe ffici ents under transformations of forces and fluxes which leave the rate of entropy production innll'iant, is shown to be invalid under the restricti on that all fluxe s be even or odd ullder t ime-reversal and t hat the phenomenological equations be yalid fol' \'ery s hort ti tTles. This result extends an earlier proof of Coleman a nd Truesdell, whose proof does not impose these t wo restriction s. A
