    Abstract : Since 1901 several investigators have come to the conclusion that Magelang cannot be reckoned free from malaria, but, in spite of this, it is still used as a sanatorium for patients recovering from the disease.
    Of 2, 678 school children, 331 (about 13 per cent.) had enlarged spleens, and of these 61 were positive, 38 being cases of malignant tertian, 21 of benign tertian, and 2 of quartan malaria.
    The following Anophelines occur: Anopheles (Myzomyia} minimus var. aconitus, A. subpictus (rossi), A. indefinitus, A. schüffneri, A. fuliginosus, A. barbirostris, and A. (Cellia} kochi. A. minimus aconitus, a known carrier, is a house-mosquito that is comparatively abundant and is found throughout the district.
