The Mosquito's Many Loves The mosquito may be a general nuisance, but he doesn't go around bestowing his dubious favors on just anyone, a study reported in an American Medical Association journal discloses. His real passion is for certain types and it amounts to frenzy for anyone with a dark complexion, a warm skin and good health wear' ing perfume and dark clothing. Dark skins draw 22 per cent- more mosquitoes than light complexions, Negroes 60 per cent more than whites. Good health can be a drawback. The bite is put on healthy types much more frequently than on the ill. The warmer the skin, the better the mosquito likes it. Temperature in the upper layers is the big attraction. "The Land between the Lakes" in Kentucky refers to two lakes that did not exist a generation ago. On one side is Kentucky Lake, .formed when Kentucky Dam impounded the Tennessee River in 1944. The other is Lake Barkley, which began forming in 1965 when the gates were closed at Barkley Dam on the Cumberland River. Perfume and cologne are likely to attract more than the opposite sex. Mosquitoes home in on a fragrance. Highly active people, particularly if they perspire heavily, set themselves up as targets. Mosquitoes have definite color preferences. They go in particular for black, blue and dark teds. OBITUARY • Mrs. Kerbough Dies at Age 87 Mrs. Ola Kerbough, a longtime resident of Dell, died yesterday after a long illness. She was 87.
