'Millions of ' dollars in March of
Dimes funds are needed, these offic

thousands of polio patients for
whom 'the Salk vaccine comes too
late." Some 68,000 patients all over
the country are now on the rolls of
the National Foundation, and many
more will- be stricken before the
Salk vaccina la administered to all.
Funds are also needed to con
tinue the National . Foundation's
work in the scientific research. That
program has already produced the
Salk vaccine, which is 00-90 per
cent effective against the three typ
es of virus known to cause polio.
Additional research may turn up
still better medical weapons.
March of Dimes research goes be
yond preventive techniques, . jand
devotes a ood deal of. time . and
money to the- eearch for new me

of the program aids not only polio
