lot and carried to Atlanta for examination. Salmonella typhimurium and several other pathogenic and nonpathogenic organisms were isolated from the turkey.

by 6 volunteers. They were then transported to a recreation area where they were stored at room temperature until Easter. Nose and throat cultures of 2 of the volunteers, and cultures of some cracked eggs, by the local laboratory, revealed staphylococcus. These cultures were confirmed as golden pigmented, hemolytic and coagulase positive, by the State laboratory. They are being submitted for phage typing.

The report on gastro-enteritis by Dr. McCroan of Georgia, as given in The Communicable Disease Summary last week, stated that no bacteriologic studies were made. It has been reported that specimens of food from both schools were examined as completely as possible with essentially negative results. A frozen turkey was taken from an unbroken package of the suspected

Communicable diseases in other areas

Dr. A. S. Osborne, Science Attache, American Embassy, London, reports that the number of confirmed cases of smallpox in Yorkshire, England, has now reached 25. The last 4 cases reported indicate spread to areas not previously involved. One of the recent cases, an 8-year-old boy, died 2 days after admission to a hospital. Many of the cases reported so far have been in older people, vaccinated in infancy, or younger ones who are unvaccinated.

SOURCE AND NATURE OF DATA

These provisional data are based on reports from State and territorial health departments to the Public Health Service. They give the total number of cases of certain communicable diseases reported during the week usually ended the preceding

Saturday. When the diseases which rarely occur (cholera, dengue, plague, typhus fever-epidemic, and yellow fever) are reported, they will be noted under the table above.

Symbols.-1 dash [-]: no cases reported; asterisk (*] : disease stated not notifiable; parentheses, [ ] in total; 3 dashes [---] : data not available.
