This is the relentless battle infantile paralysis common of all, regardless of age or accident of birth?spearheaded by the annual March of Dimes, held this year from January 16-30. Coming as it does, in the wake of the second worst epidemic of the dis ease ever to ravage our nation, the 1947 March of Dimes deserves?end will undoubtedly receive?the fullest support of every American who hot only wants to help thoee unable to help themselves, but to insure for himself and his family the best avail able care if and when the dread crip pier strikes. The National Foundation for Infhp tile Paralysis, which sponsors the March jof Dimes, is unique in the an nals of public welfare organisations. It is literally the- property of the American people who support it with their dimes. It has no other means for obtaining funds, such as endow ments, bequests or grants. What it gets, it gets through the March of Dimes and through the March of Dimes only. Not only is the National Founda tion pledged to do ita utmost when epidemic?or even individual cases? breaks-out, but its ceaseless research into the causes of the disease is the. only promise we have that some day that cause will be discovered and ren dered harmless. In the meanwhile, we can all gatlier satisfaction from the fact that no one stricken with the disease?regardless of age, rtee, creed or color?need go without adequate care through lack of funds?and polio is among the most expensive of human afflictions. There are three things we know with certainty. Polfef will strike again ? where or when we do not know. Wh0n it does strike the com munity win be ready?the National Foundation guarantees that. And the National Foundation Will be reedy be cause the March of Dimes will see to that! ". * v>/ Give generously, give proudly, give thankfully ? to the 1947 March of Dimes! .'
