China [Abstractpdf] \def\Z{{\mathbb Z}\,} \def\Der{\mathop{\rm Der\,}\nolimits} Let $\cal W$ and $\cal S$ denote the even parts of the generalized Witt superalgebra $W$ and the special superalgebra $S$ over a field of characteristic $p>3$, respectively. In this note, using the method of reduction on $\Z$gradations, we determine the derivation space $\Der( {\cal W}, W_{\overline1})$ from $\cal W$ into $W_{\overline1}$ and the derivation space $\Der({\cal S}, W_{\overline1})$ from $\cal S$ into $W_{\overline1}$. In particular, the derivation space $\Der({\cal S}, S_{\overline1})$ is determined. Keywords: Generalized Witt superalgebra, special superalgebra, derivation space, canonical torus.
