Four researchers in the Communicable Disease Center, Public Health Service, have just published a report confirming a long-held scientific suspicion that mosquitoes are the probable vector of this type of encephalomyelitis. The workers are Miss Beatrice F.IHowitt, Dr. H. R. Dodge, Dr. L. K. Bishop, and Miss Rachael H.
