STREET FLOOR cal banker, he opened the Hotel Bacon. Long, untiring hours of work followed before profits began to show up. Meanwhile, Pauline became the mother of a baby boy. Then, on that unforgettable Sept. 10, 1948, disaster struck. It was just like any other autumn day for most people—a cool, cJean crisp smell in the air; the leaves were turning from green to beautiful red and brown colors—the kind of a day that makes one feel glad to be alive. Pauline Became III But, not for Dave and his family—that was the day Pauline became seriously ill with polio. She was taken to the hospital and remained unconscious there for 3 weeks. On Aug. 20, 1949, she returned to their home—but their joy was short-lived. Pauline caught cold returned to the hospital and was put in an iron lung to save her life. Gradually she became strong enough to return home—if a lung .were kept there in the event of reccurrence. But a respirator costs nearly $2,000 and what little savings they had were already depleted. Timothy was staying in the Childreii's Memorial hospital in Omaha and Pauline's hospital expenses mounted to nearly §44 a day. Fortunately, as in thousands of cases, Dave procured help from his local chapter of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. Today, more than $9,500 has been invested in this one individual case —but Pauline, Susan and Dave are all back together and optimistically looking forward to an almost normal life. Gave to March of Dimes The first of this year, Dave borrowed $500 from the banker again —not for hotel repairs, not for his home, or for their family—but he donated every penny to the March of Dimes campaign. "Our family's only one case," Dave said, "multiply that by 2,000,000 polio victims and $500 doesn't go far." Dave's right, too. All except 6 of Iowa's 99 counties have reported" one or more cases of polio this year.

Says Atom Progress Brings War Closer Iowa City, (U.R)—Russia's atomic progress brings World war III closer, George Olmsted, Des Moines, president of the United World Federalists of Iowa, said Wednesday.
