Committee Invites Organizations Into One Fund Drive A united fund raising campaign appears to be a sure bet by October. The "United Campaigns" committee took two big steps this week, to mark the turning point in the proposed changeover from a Community Chest and seven addi tional fund appeals to a single welfare fund drive. 1. The committee formally Invited all existing welfare and Some Answers... 1. Why a single fund-raising campaign? A. People get tired of continual asking for money. Drives now start in October and last until June. Too many drives have discouraged both givers and giving. B. Donations are slumping here. The public has become I indifferent to the many appeals'and are failing to respond. Some agencies are not getting enough money to do an adequate job. C. It will cut overhead and have less wasted manpower. There will be less expense with a single campaign, leaving more money to do the job for which it was intended. 2. It a single fund-raising campaign a cure-all? No, it will not do the job by itself. It will still depend upon good people to do the work and on the community as a whole to respond. 3. Will It end other drives? No, a few organizations will want to continue their own campaigns. However, the response to additional campaigns will drop markedly and public opinion may force these organizations to come into United Campaigns. 4. What Is the best way to make a single campaign work-that is, raise enough money for all worthy organizations without perpetual asking? Payroll deduction. Many workers and business firms have indicated they would rather give a little every month than a whole lot at one time. Westvaco workers are doing this and find they are doing their b'it without it being painful. Everyone will be asked this fall to give. a 5. Why should people give? There are many needs in the community which can only be filled by public support. They affect almost every one of us directly or indirectly. The greater Pocatello community should take pride that it can "look after its own" with good programs, helping its youth, needy and. sick as well as guiding the unfortunate and contributing to medical research. health organizations into "United Campaigns." They were asked to ihare in one annual community- v.ido drive with the frank acknowledgement they ,vill not conduct any additional drives. In turn, they were asked to name a member to the "United Campaigns" board of directors. 2. Four labor members were invited to be on the present planning committee, and be on the board'of Major Manages To Belly Land Idaho May Face Polio Epidemic Claims Doctor By UNITED PRESS A public health doctor in Twin Falls fears Idaho may experience its "worst polio season ever" and an Idaho Falls physician has taken issue with the state health department's stand against further mass anti-polio inoculations. Those were the latest developments in Idaho's polio outbreak as the 56th "association" case was reported from Twin Falls, bringing the total of all cases for the year to 98. In addition to the association cases, there have been 21 among vaccinated children and 21 cases of "true" polio. Dr. Cecil R. Rcinstoin, speaking before the Twin Falls Exchange Club," warned oi' the "worst polio season ever." Reinstcin, the medical director for the south central Idaho health unit, said public health officials are "preparing for the worst, but hoping for the best." Dr. David H. Smith of Idaho Falls, past president of the local medical society, said IK did not doubt that some of Idaho's polio cases were the result of the vaccine used in Idaho last April. He argued, however, that other Salk vaccine has been found to be "absolutely safe and effective." Smith recommended that the vaccine be used to stop'the outbreak of polio in Idaho this summer. He pointed out that some polio experts have said that the chances for the vaccine preventing the disease far outweigh the possible harmful effects. ZUNI, N. M. (UP) - Maj. E. H. Manuel seared a CAA radio station operator stiff and set his three companions to mumbling prayers last night, but he brought an Air Force B25 down safely although he could not reach the El More emergency landing strip here. Manueal made a wheels-up land- Ing on level ground and skidded to a hall short of the strip--just 25 yards from the radio shack. He was en route from his home base, Andrews AFB in Maryland, to Los Angeles, with Navy Cmdr. J. P. Wilbur flying co-pilot and airman 2C F. S. Foster as engineer. Maj. J. M. Anderson of March A.FB, Calif., was a passenger. directors of "United Campaigns" in tnc fall. The first step followed six months of consultation with representatives of tile Community Chest agencies and health and welfare organizations, talking over mutual problems and the advantages and disadvantages of a single fund drive. As the result of these confer- nccs -- plus further scrutiny of lie instructions by merchants of lie Chamber of Commerce which riginally created the committee --a constitution and bylaws was rawn up to fit the greater Poca- ello community interests. The proposed organization close- y parallels that found successful i cities similar in size and make- p of Pocatello-Alameda. The second step followed the re- alization (hat the working man and his children have just as much at slake in welfare and youth organizations as does the merchant or professional man. The working man should help plan and direct these organizations. Accordingly, the Building Trades named'Ellsworth W. Sams to the committee and the remaining AF of L unions appointed Robert Lcn- aghen. M. T. Chadwick, general chairman for the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen, was asked to serve as the liaison man with the railroad unions. Charles Roper, new president of the CIO Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers, is expected to consult his union and name a fourth man to Hie board. Representatives of the latter union, together witli the Westvnco management, already have worked out a successful federated fund campaign at Westvaco. United Campaigns, as now proposed, would go into effect about Sept. 1. A single fund-raising drive would be undertaken in October. Funds would be distributed to the member agencies for the calendar year, 1956. A 21-man board, consisting of representatives of the various agencies and members of the public at large elected by contributors at an annual meeting, would direct the organization. The board would allot money to the agencies, based upon the requests of the agencies and needs of the community. It \vould rule on admission of further agencies to United Campaigns as well as on requests for emergency canv paigns. A sub-committee would make a continuing study of the needs of the community to make sure contributors money was going where it was needed. A contributor in the fall campaign would get membership In to vote at the annual meeting. He will be able to specify where his money should go, or he can let it go into the general fund for division among all the agencies. A participating agency will continue to spiyid its money as it determines best. In turn it must make an annual, audited report to United Campaigns. C. Ed Flandro, automobile dealer, is chairman of the chamber of commerce's planning committee. Others are secretary Mrs, Ann Daniel, insurance Underwriter arid newly-elected state president of Business Professional Women's clubs; Michael MacBulch, finance company manager and president of the Community Chest; Ralph J. Comstock Jr., banker and retiring president of the Bannock county Red Cross. Ralph Jones Jr., attorney; Norman V. Stcdtfeld, secretary-treasurer of Garrett Freightllnes Inc.; Dr. J. T. Kihara, dentist; and David R. Bowers, managing editor of the Idaho State Journal. They have been joined by Sams, Lenaghen, Chadwick and a representative of the CIO.
