New March of Dimes Enlists Millions In Baffle to Prevent Crippling Diseases Beginning Jan. 2 and throughout the month, millions of Americans will enlist in the annual offensive to prevent crippling diseases by joining the 1961 New March of Dimes. In thousands of communities —crossroads, hamlets, towns, great cities—special ceremonies will mark the start of The National Foundation's campaign for dimes and dollars to combat birth defects, arthritis and polio; to pursue research into these and allied medical problems, and to train health workers. Climaxing the 1961 New March of Dimes will. be the Mothers' March, held on the evening of Tuesday, Jan. 31 in most areas, during which more than a million women and other volunteers will make home-to- home calls asking support to help prevent crippling diseases. Participants in the Mothers' March will wear a lapel identification badge and they will leave in every home an educational pamphlet of "Do's and Don'ts" relating to birth defects and expectant mothers, and another dealing with warning signs and symptoms of arthritis. The goal of the 1961 New March of Dimes, to cover needful expenditures in research, patient aid and professional education, is $45 millions. As always, a heavy financial burden on The National Foundation and its 3,100 chapters is the cost of old polio cases. (In 1960, patient-aid outlays to some 40,000 victims totaled approximately $13,250,000.) Most communrties in January will stage a "kickoff" ceremony in which local dignitaries and other personalities will participate. Chief purpose of these events will be to call attention again to the magnitude of the expanded program of The Na- ttonal Foundation and to reemphasize that one of every 16 infants in the U.S. is-born with a significant birth defect; that fully 11 million in the nation are afflicted with some form of rheumatism including arthritis; and that the staggering costs of polio will continue in 1961.

Reports to the Conservation Com mission office in Des Moines indicate that the ice is thick and the fish active in most Iowa waters, Here are some tips from the fisher ies section of the Commission that should help the novice in a winter sport that is growing in popularity by leaps and bounds. 1. Use small hooks, small bob bers, light weights, and monoflla ment line. Large hooks and thick braided line are apt io freeze. Spli shot are ideal sinkers for ice fish ng. Keep your tackle light. 2. Bait: minnows and chubs for perch, crappies, northerns and wall eyes; comberer, goldenrod galls, or imported "mousies" for bluegills and bass. Ask your favorite sport ing goods store that sells bait. 3. If you don't have an ice fish I ing shack, don't worry. Some of I the best fishing is through holes cut in open ice. Keep the holes small. Fish with two poles some distance apart, but close enough to 1 watch both lines. _| 4. Make depth soundings and fish J about a foot off the bottom. Look ™ ; for weed beds where the fish con' "|gregate to obtain oxygen. 5. In clear water it is possible to see into the lake by lying on the ice with the head covered by a dark cloth. 6. Use an ice spud to cut holes if possible. An axe is the hard way. 7. Take a stool along to sit on, or a box or keg on a sled. Some consider*! disease.
