'Kiss Your Baby' Campaign Underway Volunteers for the 1978 Kiss Your Baby Campaign will call on their neighbors the week of Sept. 24-30 to encourage them to kiss their babies and ask their help in the fight for the millions of children across the nation who suffer from lung-damaging diseases. The campaign's door-to- door drive will be conducted in Texas City for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as part of the annual effort to raise funds for programs benefiting children with cystic fibrosis and other lung-damaging diseases. "Our cause is a very important one. Lung diseases kill more children in this nation than any other disease except cancer," said Frances Stanfield, chairman of the campaign. "Cystic fibrosis is the number one genetic killer of children, and approximately 40 percent of persons suffering from CF are not yet diagnosed.'' According to Mrs. Stanfield, contributions to the Kiss Your Baby Campaign will help support a national network of more than 100 Cystic Fibrosis Centers, research projects around the world and various educational programs. Cystic Fibrosis Centers, like the one located at the Texas Institute for Rehabilitation and Research in Houston, provide diagnosis, treatment, and referral to children suffering from cystic fibrosis, asthma, chronic bronchitis, bron- chiectasis, "childhood emphysema'' and recurrent pneumonia. Doctors at Houston's CF Clinic treat more than 900 of these patients yearly. "Through research, we hope to find a cure and control for cystic fibrosis," said Mrs. Stanfield. "Another goal of the research program is developing better methods of treating children with all lung-damaging diseases.'' "Most of the funds that are raised in the Kiss Your Baby Campaign go to these very important national programs," Mrs. Stanfield said. "But almost 50 percent of the monies stay in this chapter area to support services for local children with cystic fibrosis and other lung-damaging diseases." Cystic fibrosis affects one of every 1,500 infants born each year. It occurs when a child inherits two genes for CF, one from each parent. "Since the CF Foundation was established in 1955, remarkable progress has occurred in treating children with cystic fibrosis," Mrs. Stanfield commented. "At that time, most children with this disease died at preschool age. Today, more than 50 percent of the children with cystic fibrosis live past their 18th birthday." Contributions may be sent in care of Mrs. Stanfield at 1801 Crown Court, Texas City 77590. tEltc ©afceston •Bailg CONTACT 744-0222 Questions or comments must relate to local area Issues, situations or conditions.

Why can't the garbage men pick up the garbage they have spilled all over the place when they pick up the garbage? J. D. of Texas City.

How is the Park Board of Trustees created? What is its source of income? How many are there on the board, and how many are paid salaries? How much are they paid? G. F. of Galveston. The Park Board of Trustees is a city agency whose members are appointed by the Galveston City Council. Its funds come from a four percent hotel-motel occupancy tax in Galveston, and from park concessions. The board consists of eight regular members and one ex oficio member. Board members are not paid.

Primary function of the Galveston Police Department crime prevention unit is to devise methods and strategies for reducing the incidence of burglary and theft in the city. The crime prevention unit conducts residential security meetings and programs for groups and organization, offers free building inspection services (security surveys), and provides services for marking valuables (Operation Identification). The crime prevention unit encourages citizens and organizations to take advantage of these services and thereby help the police in reducing the incidence of burglary and theft. Operation Identification involves the marking of valuables with an identifying number as a means of discouraging burglary and theft. The operation is two-fold: (A.) Marking valuables with the owner's drivers license number. (B.) Displaying a sticker which tells would-be burglars that the valuables have been marked. Marked property is difficult for a burglar to dispose of or resell, since it can be traced to the rightful owner with relative ease. After marking the valuables, a list of the items should be made and kept in a safe place. If the valuables are subsequently stolen, they can readily be described to the police and claimed when they are rediscovered. Burglary is the most frequently committed crime in the United States. Participation in Operation Identification is one of many anti-burglary precautions Galveston residents can take to protect their homes, valuables, and family.
