Area In Drive
"We have $6,287.09 reported in
hand, and several industries and
schools yet to report," A. P. Led
better, polio campaign chairman,
reported at noon yesterday for the
Waynesville area. "We will meet
our quota," he added.
The quota is $6,500 for this area.
Two bank clerks were still busy
counting small coins at noon, as
proceeds from schools, the dime
board and individual contributors
rolled into the treasury of the
polio fund, of which Mrs. Win. Nor
ris is treasurer.
The Beta Sigma Phi dance on
Friday night added some $1,500 to
the fund, with possibly a few dol
lars above that figure, it was re
ported. Plans are to keep the books of
the campaign open for the re
mainder of this week so that late
contributors may have a part in the
drive, it was announced.
Every means for raising money
have been employed by Mr. Led
belter and his large staff of co
workers. The Rotary Club sponsored the
dime board, as well as general
solicitations. The dime board net
ted -.$1,219,77. Besides personal
solicitation, and working through
the schools, money was raised by
the dance Friday night, through
sporting events, radio programs,
the dime board, and pay roll de
duction plans in several industries.
Mr. Ledbetter said yesterday: "I
want to thank everyone who work
ed during this campaign, and to all
contributors. Whil it has been a
hard Job, we all realize ft was for
a good cause; and that makes us
doubly happy now that we have
reached our. goal. Many thinks for
your help and money."
