    Today four accepted cases were added to the cumulative list, giving a total of 33, as of 7:30 P.M., May 3, 1955. Three of today's cases were reported from Oregon, and all received Cutter Vaccine. Two of these cases developed paralysis, and in one the initial site of paralysis was the arm inoculated.

    The news release enclosed as attachment No. 1 to the present report restates the immediate questions of national importance in the polio situation. The data as PSU receives it, is transmitted immediately to the advisory group of experts in Washington. As this document makes clear, PSU data are already in use.

    In order to amplify the scheme for collection of data outlined in PSU Report No. 1, a recommendation for collection and transmission of information is outlined in attachment No. 2. A proposed Poliomyelitis Investigation Form is also included.
