The Journal presents its fourteenth annual survey1 of typhoid fever mortality in the seventy-seven cities of the United States that had more than 100,000 population in 1925.2 As in the thirteenth report, the cities have been grouped according to the recognized geographic divisions of the U. S. Census Bureau. Since 1920, eight cities have been added to the list of cities with more than 100,000 population (El Paso, Lynn, Duluth, Utica, San Diego, Canton, Flint, Tulsa) and these appear for the first time in our tables.
The cities of the New England group (table 1) again make a very favorable showing. All but four of the New England cities achieve a place on the Honor Roll (rates less than 2.0 per hundred thousand), and one city (Lowell, Mass.) has the distinction of remaining free from any typhoid death. The full five-year comparison (1921-1925) which this year becomes available
