The distribution and kinematics of the luminous young stars in
the Carina spiral feature (l = 282° - 305 °) are investigated and compared
with the available data for the neutral hydrogen gas in the same region.
New observational data are presented for 176 luminous stars of all spec-
tral types. These stars reveal a well- defined spiral feature from 1.5
to 6 kpc from the sun. It is suggested that both the young stars and
hydrogen gas are observed to large distances along the line of sight
in Carina. A detailed comparison of the velocities of the stars and
dense gas yields a good overall correlation. A noticeable discrepancy
at l = 290° between the stellar and gas motions is discussed. Velocity
residuals for the stars indicate systematic motions of 6 km /sec between
the sides of the spiral feature. These streaming motions should be
shared by the associated gas.
