Donation Needed
To Extend Work
With prc'eds from the J-Hop
extra, Washtenaw County will at-
tempt to maintain it's four year
record of contributing the most
Imoney per capita in the state for
the campaign against dread in-
fantile paralysis.
Last year Washtenaw County
contributions ran 21 cents per per-
son for the county, Mrs. Hickman
Price, chairman of the Infantile
Paralysis Foundation announced.-
One half of this money, $8,869, was
kept by the county foundation for
treating county polio cases, while
the remaining half went to the
National Infantile Paralysis Foun-
dation for research, epidemic aid
and education.
21 Cases
Twenty - one new poliomyelitis
cases were cared for by the county
during the past year in addition
to cases carried over from the pre-
seeding year.
Eight of these cases were hron
Ann Arbor, seven from Ypsilanti,
three from Milan, and one each
from Northville, Horseshoe Lake,
and Willow Run.
"The cost of treating these new
cases as well as continuing the
treatment of old cases will eat
away most of the surplus from
previous years," according to Miss
Dorothy Ketcham, secretary of the
county chapter.
Reserve Dwhidles
"The Foundation's reserve fund
is nearly depleted so that the need
for contributions is more urgent
than before," Miss Ketcham said.
The National Foundation is al-.

Miss Ketcham explained that
Washtenaw County has a forward
looking policy conerning polio
cases. Each person with a polio
disorder, adult or child, has been
offered immediate assistance. Sev-
eral cases have received not only
hospitalization in acute periods,
but have had long periods of con-
valescent care and subsequent re-
peated re-examinations to sustain
