Two members of the Lions Club brought an orthopedic bicycle which is scientifically designed to help the muscles in little Joe's legs develop so that in the very near future he will be walking without the aid of braces. He suffered an attack of polio in the fall of .1952 and for many months was a patient in St. Francis Hos pital in Peoria. He was released Good Friday and has appeared to be improving very well Although it will be necessary to wear braces for some time yet, until the leg muscles arc suffi ciently strengthened, he is able to walk without them and can get around at a normal rate of speed Little Joe is a winsome little fellow, camera shy, but otherwise very friendly. With three sisters to keep up with, he will doubtless always feel a deep thankfulness that he was able to make such a complete recovery Linns Club Project The bicycle, has been a project of the Lions Club, which has been under construction for many weeks. James White and F. B. Nash designed it and it operates on an electric motor. Instead of requiring the motion of the legs to move the pedals, the electric motor does that, slowly enough that it wouldn't be tiring and still give the maximum good of the exercise. Small blocks of wood are attached to the pedals and the bike and motor arc attached to a wooden platform, all nicely painted and attractive to any little boy. Following the arrival of the Lydia."

Leivis Crusades for Using Coal HAZLETON, Pa. UP) — John Lewis, bushy-browed warrior many a tussle with coal mine operators, presidents and courts, has turned ' salesman—to sell anthracite as the top fuel for the American honfe. Gone from Lewis' latest role are the short, snapping phrases which have characterized his battles of the past. In their place is a straightforward, explaining approach to the problem of how to market more hard coal so John! L.'s hard pressed miners can put! more bread and butter on their dinner tables. 1 The latest phase of this role came Thursday night when John L. stood up to speak at the golden anniversary dinner of the Anthracite Mine Conciliation Board in suburban Lakewood Park Ballroom near this northeastern Pennsylvania town. Lewis talked about the need for increased production and efficiency to meet the threat of a competitive market if the anthracite industry is to retain its high standards. Competition from oil and gas interests has cut hard into the anthracite coal industry's sales to home owners. Bituminous or soft coal has not been affected since most of this grade is channelled to industrial uses in steel mills and similar enterprises. LEONARD F.
