    "Appended to this report are several resolutions adopted by the Association of State and Territorial Health Officers at a meeting Washington, D. C., held on August 27, 28. Recommendations concerning surveillance and reporting, vaccine use and promotion, community organization and research planning were offered. Additional data for influenza-like illness seen at Charity Hospital in New Orleans are available through mid-August. A slight increase in visits for influenza-like illness is noted. A further influenza-associated death is reported from California. No laboratory confirmation of influenza confirmation is available at present. Death was due to massive staphylococcal pneumonia with almost complete bilateral consolidation. More complete clinical data are presented from the previously reported Mississippi county0outbreak of influenza0like illness. It is noticeable that more than a third of the patients complained of gastrointestinal symptoms. Most of these were in the younger age group. An impression of increased influenza-like illness is reported from Florida and Texas. In the former, sporadic cases have been confirmed as Asian strain influenza. Influenza-like illness has occurred in a Reserve Unit from Illinois, training at San Diego, and aboard a Coast Guard Cutter in the Gulf of Mexico. The problem of quantitating these impresses here and elsewhere continues to be a very complex one." - p. 2
