Donations to the 'New March of Dimes'
Will Help Prevent Crippling Diseases
Millions of families
throughout the United
States this month have re
ceived March of Dimes
If the millions on the receiv
ing end of this gigantic mail
operation coast-to-coast and in
Hawaii and Alaska have not
already done so, now is the
time, to return the familiar en
velope with a donation to the
county March of Dimes chap
ter, local leaders urged this
week. The world’s largest vol
untary health organization is
seeking to prevent crippling
diseases, with its sights set at
birth defects and arthritis and
at continued work in polio.
These mailers, which repro
duce the campaign theme,
“Prevent Crippling Diseases—
Please Say Yes to the New
March of Dimes,” were ad
dressed in great part by selfless
volunteers who, by combing
through telephone and other
directories, were able to “spot”
just about every family in
their county. Addresses of new
homes, not included in tele
phone books, were obtained by
these volunteers from real es
tate boards, tax lists, from
other official records, and from
chambers of commerce.
Hopefully, each of the 44
million families in the United
States will have an opportun
ity to help prevent crippling
diseases by contributing to the
March of Dimes between now
and Jan. 31.
The blue mailer contains an
envelope with a pocket for a
March of Dimes contribution
by check or cash and with space
for the donor’s name and ad
dress. A brief message ad
dressed to “Dear Neighbor”
explains the expanded program
of The National Foundation,
and elsewhere on the mailer a
few health figures are given—
for example, that birth de
fects cripple one out of every
16 babies in the United States;
that arthritis and rheumatism
afflict 11 million Americans;
and that polio can still strike
down any one of more than 85
nillion unvaccinated persons
n the country.

the fiscal year starting next
June 30, by between $3 billion
and So billion in order to com

as the current "recession”.
Most economists agree that

the national security or any es-.
