The National Foundation for
Infantile Paralysis has launched
its annual March of Dimes cam-
paign to raise funds to fight one
of the nation's most dangerous
and dreaded diseases.
In recent years the number of
polio cases has risen to what medi-
cal authorities consider epidemic
stage, making the need for fur-
ther research greater than ever.
THIS YEAR the pledge of each
chapter of the National Fonda-
tion is that no polio victim shall
go without treatment for lack of
funds. To achieve this the local
chapter is appealing to every resi-
dent of the county for financial
help so they can make this pledge
In addition to the usual col-
lection through stores and thea-
tres, half the proceeds from the
Rose Bowl movies to be shown
at Hill Auditorium Saturday
night have been pledged to the
drive. Proceeds from the sale of
The Daily's J-Hop extra wil go
to the March of Dimes, as usual.
The Washtenaw County goal for
this drive has been set at $24,500,
several thousand dollars less than
the 1950 goal. Last year the local
chapter was forced to call on the
National Foundation for over
$14,000, so it is imperative that
they reach their goal to make up
for last year's deficit and to re-
plenish the treasury for 1951.
Half of the money collected here
will remain in Washtenaw County
to help victims and to support re-
search being cajried on at Uni-
versity Hospital. The other half
goes t the National Foundation
to aid hard hit areas and continue
The Washtenaw County chapter
has used over $47,000 since 1945
to pay for hospital and clinical
care for 90 polio patients at Uni-
