    "The incidence of poliomyelitis In the United states has been increasing slowly during the past few week. For the current week 145 cases were reported as compared with 122 for the previous week. The corresponding flgure for last year was 88 and the 5-year median, 102. Since the beginning of the "disease year," which started with the week ended April 5, a total of 729 cases has been reported. Half of these eases (365) were in California and Texas. The corresponding total for last year was 562, and California and Texas reported less than a third (176) of these cases, There seems to be no concentration in: any local areas of the above mentioned States, except as noted in the Communicable Disease Summary, for the week ended May 10. While there has been a gradual increase in other States in the past few weeks, there is as yet no evidence of a localized concentration of cases. For the "disease year," 24 cases have occurred in Hawaii as compared with only 1 for the corresponding period of 1951. The incidence of Rocky Mountain spotted fever has been essentially the same this year, 45 cases since January 1, as compared with the same period last year, when there were 45 cases. Since March 1, about 60 percent of the cases have been reported in the Mountain and Pacific States. In this period 10 cases have been reported in Wyoming, 6 in Idaho, 3 in Oregon, and 1 each in Montana, Colorado, and Utah. 10 the Middle Atlantic States, Virginia has reported 4 cases and North Carolina 3. The peak of incidence is usually reached in May in the Mountain and Pacific States, and in July in the Middle Atlantic. Eight to 12 cases of Colorado tick fever were reported in Nevada." - p. 1
