Abstract : Data are presented on the linear polarization properties of 42 radio sources at 18.0-cm wavelength. These are combined with data obtained previously at other wavelengths to obtain rotation measures. The dependence of all reliable rotation measures on the galactic coordinates is interpreted in terms of the magnetic field within the local spiral arm. (Author)
