A YOUNG PATIENT SMILES OVER HIS RESPIRATOR
* . * ,

By DIANE DECKER
MRS. Frances Geiser didn't ex-
pect polio to strike her home
last August 15.
But, it did. And so, the mother
of two children, a four year old
daughter and a year old son, be-
gan her travels down the road to
recovery with a two-week stay in
a respirator and a much longer
period of "muscle rehabilitation".
HOWEVER, Washtenaw Coun-
ty's only polio patient of last year
who is still in University Hospi-
tal for treatment was saved from
one worry during her battle with
the disease; her $22.55 per day ex-
penses (only the average cost for
polio patients) was covered by the
local chapter of the National
Foundation for Infantile Paralysis.
In the past four years, the
March of Dimes spent $79,000,-
000 on care for patients alone.
In the previous ten years com-
bined, this bill was $41,000,000.
The heavy jump is not due only
to the increasing number of po-

lio victims, but also to the ever-
increasing number of those still
needing assistance from past
years.
Among the aid to polio victims
other than direct help for indivi-
dual cases, the National Founda-
tion has established at the Uni-
versity Hospital a respiratory cen-
ter. Opening last fall, the center
treats acute cases of infantile
paralysis.
* * .
THE CENTER has a three-fold
objective: to concentrate respira-
tory patients in areas where all
the facilities for treatment are at
hand, to educate them to work
within their limited faculties, and
to teach patients how to live at
home. The eventual aim is to get
patients out of their respirators.
Mrs. Geiser originally was
treated with hot packs and
whirlpool baths, after which her
muscles w e r e stretched. "At
first I couldn't move, except to
rasie my arms up and down a
little," she explained.
Later, she learned to use indi-
vidual muscles and to co-ordinate
her movements. She is now on a
functional program, where "It's a
thrill. Every week we learn to do
something--take a bath, open a
door, or put on our shoes."
In Washtenaw County, Univer-
sity students as well as perman-
ent residents receive aid through
the local Chapter.

Engineering Honor Council is
similar to the all-campus Men's
and Women's Judiciaries in its
operation. Its purpose is to hear
and decide cases where students
arebaccused by their classmates
or by faculty members of vio-
lating the engineering college
honor code.
The honor system, which has
been used with great success for
several years in the engineering
college, is enforced by student co-
operation.
