Abstract : Progress is reported on (1) the preparation of an index catalogue of references in medical entomology from Russia, Eastern Europe and China, (2) translation of articles of general interest to medical entomologists, and (3) the preparation of a Russian-English, English, Russian glossary of terms in medical entomology. Approximately 25,000 Keysort cards from the current files were sorted into the following categories: Diptera, Ticks, Mites, Fleas, Lice, Bedbugs, Protozoan Diseases, Bacterial Diseases, Rickettsial Diseases, Spirochaetal Diseases, Viral Diseases and Unclassified Diseases. The first draft of the manuscript for the Diptera, comprising 2,836 references, is compiled and is being edited to standardize the spelling of authors' names and journal names. The anticipated date of publication of the Diptera is late December or early January. The first draft of the tick references is being typed and will be the next section to be published. One major translation on fleas is currently in progress, and two shorter works on ticks are completed and will be distributed shortly. A Russian-English, English, Russian glossary of medical entomology was prepared and is being standardized against existing glossaries in other languages. The estimated publication date for the glossary is in early 1963. (Author)
