Polio Victim Gets Assistance As She Tries New Walking Aid FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 1949 Caroi;'n Sue llardcsty, 22-month- old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Hardcsty of Armorel. is trying out new crutches to supplement ^ho bi- lalerial leg and body brace.' In her new effort to learn to walk. The child was Mississippi County's first polio victim this year, with a diagnosis in January. She was ono of the first to be given physical therapy by Miss Elizabeth Samuels from the Arkansas Association for the" Crippled, when she arrived' in niythcville today (or a five-day schedule, checking the home progress of the county's patients still requiring treatment. . • ; Eleven children, left crippled ty this year's poliomyelitis epidemic, wcie scheduled for therapy today, and schedules were being completed by Miss Samuels though next Wednesday Miss Samuels demonstates the proper techniques fur the parents and attendants in polio treatment. Miss Samuels tins set up the mobile therupy unit at the North Mississippi County Health Unit and authorities there arc assisting her In working out the schedules and In registration. It was emphasized this morning that those with appointments must be prompt, und that whenever post-Ible parents should not bring other children since the crowded schcdulo •jrohJLI's use of additional time in caring for them. The parents need to devote the full appointment time U3 absorbing the training and treatment techniques. Miss Sameuls said. The >'nrdesty child had not learned to walk when she was stricken, and both legs were affected, therefore the learning tech? ntques- "n this case are particularly difficult for the child.

And It's often an enlightening experience to boot. That's why I'm all for the glrla at a small town high school who have written me that they are planning a turn-about week when the girls will do the date-making and pick up all checks, an idea they say they borrow from "Freckles and His Friends' and their ycp-rly Twirp Season (when The Woman 14 Requested to Pay). It ought to teach both the boys and girls a few things—about each other. ' The girls will learn. In one week, a lot about the high cost of dating. the IransiHjrtntion problem, and what it feels like to be the one who has to do the asking. That new Insight ought to make the girls more concerned in the future about reading "both sides of a menu. It should make them a little less snooty toward the boy who has transportation troubles •And it miuhfcvcvc'n teach them to be more gracious in both accepting and refusing dates. Ilo.vs E'ick Up Pointers, Too As for the boys—well, while they are on the receiving end they should pick up a few ideas, too. For instance, they might learn what it is like not to be sure' whether they are going to be in-j viled to the school dance or not. { And maybe even discover that being a wall flower Is no fun. And If the girls are cagey, they'll tike this opportunity to correct the boys' dating manners, whenever Indicated, by dishing out just what they've been receiving in the way of having a date arrive late, or watching, from the sidelines while a visiting belle gets a big rush. In elating both boys and girls have their problems—whether It :s trying to get enough money to finance a date or sitting waiting for the telephone (o ring. This turn-about week ought to give 'cm both a chance to find out what the other's problems are. After "Twirp Season," dating manners should be smoother all the way around.
