THURSDAY, JANUARY 25, 1945 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Mason City Garden Club Membership Drive . Gets Under Way Polio Fight Is Shared by Women Women are doing a superb job In every phase of national life today and their effort in the fight against infantile paralysis is one of the brighest spots in the whole tapestry of service, according to Mary Pickford, chairman of the women's division of the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. Last summer the women o£ America more than proved their value as "Front Liners" in fighting one of the worst epidemics of polio that ever struck our children. In its toll of victims and intensity of attack, the 1944 outbreak of the disease was seconc only to the terrible epidemic o: 1916. But 1944 found America strongly prepared to meet that attack and wherever the Crippler struck our women were active in th counterattack. Their valiant ef forts were invaluable to the sue cessful handling of the epidemic An · outstanding example o women's participation in the poli war "may be found in North Car olina. Somewhat in advance o the usual season, that state wa suddenly stricken with an api demic outbreak that swept tii Piedmont area. Existing hospita facilities were unable to cope wit the flood of polio. ; To uphold the National Foun dation's pledge of aid to all poli victims regardless of age, rac creed or color, an emergenc hospital was created within thre days, from a children's summe camp. Women of that epidem area were of great help in the sui ssful operation of the hospital. Mothers of stricken youngsters rought their children to the hos- tal and stayed' to work--as urses, ward helpers, in the kit- len and dining room. Before the tchen was built, housewives ooked food in their own kitchens nd brought it to the hospital Other young women did office ork and kept parents advised of hildren's progress. Even paroled omen prisoners volunteered for ospital housework. And women f the community flocked to Red ross sewing rooms to help with le task of making hospital garments. Not only in North Carolina, but hroughout the United States, herever there was an outbreak f infantile paralysis, the women f America were volunteer sol- iers in the polio war. " v Members of the women's divis- on of The National Foundation or Infantile Paralysis, working hrough the county chapters of the rganization, more than proved heir worth as "Front Liners," and t is very heartening to know tha wherever infantile paralysis may trike in 1945, the women o America will be prepared to com- at that attack under the leadership of the National Foundation The funds through which the National Foundation carries on its work are derived from the cam aaign held each January in cele bration of the president's birth day.

Margery Pickett, director of the WAC band at Fort Oglethorpe, has returned to her duties after spending a furlough with her father, Ray Pickett, 921 4th S. W. Linen, Silk ! Come Back to Market By DOROTHY ROE AP Fashion Editor Some fabrics long absent from the American fashion scene are beginning to trickle back--not in quantity, it's true, but enough to remind us that there are such things as pure silk and pure linen. Spring collections of New York designers were 1 notable for the amount of pure silk shown by many top houses, made up into handsome suits a n d summer fiocks. Now comes the news that Irish linen is with us once more,- in a limited number of resort dresses styled by top sportswear houses. In handling both the silk and the linen, designers have relied on the beauty of the fabric to achieve their effects, presenting, the precious materials in beautifully simple styles and in soft pastel colors. Irish linen is shown in pale blue, pink, aqua, yellow, and natural for resort wear, with a little navy and brown for town dresses. bne designer has used natural linen for a simple § dress with a high round neckline and short cap sleeves, unadorned except for a white bow appliqued on the right shoulder and on the center front of the waistline. Another has worked sheer handkerchief linen into a smart town frock of navy blue, set off with a crisp white collar in sawtooth motif which is repeated on the short sleeves. The linen frocks, as well as the silk, are limited in number, but serve as forerunners of better things to come--after the war. --0-- Mrs: Dwane Dreher and son, Harold, have returned from New York where they visited Coxswain Dwane Drsher who has now gone to sea. Mrs*; Dreher is the former Marjorie Wolff and will reside at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Carl Wolff, 1220 Kentucky S.
