Mr. · Schanke pointed out thai the 1944 epidemic poliomyelitis known by the layman as infantile ; paralysis, had the 2nd largest 'number of cases in the' recorder · history of this damaging disease in the United States. -' ' The epidemic' was met effectively through specialized treatment, the training for which was · made possible by the Nationa Foundation. Not only trained physicians and nurses, but equipmen as well, were furnished by thi foundation. ; "Ton might wonder where Ihi : money to pay their bills cam from," said Mr. Schanke. "Well, i . came from yon, from the funds you contributed to the annua campaign. ' ; 'The work of the Nationa Foundation' and its chapters ii this recent epidemic was mad possible by yoii. It was your or ganization that was functionin . in the epidemic areas. The doctor and the physical therapists sen out into the field to fight th ·· scourge were really sent by you. "1944 was a record year fo this disease. It was. also a recor -year in the work carried on b. the National Foundation and its county chapters. With your sup port this help can go on."
