Twelve Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune A Trip to Remember for Thirty Doomed by Muscular Distrophy INDIANAPOLIS UP — About 80 persons, ranging in age from 6 to 60, set out June 18 to cram as much fun into three days as possible so they have "something to look back on." For many, the trip to Chicago may be their last anywhere. All are muscular dystrophy patients. "Many of them won't be here In another year," said Mrs. Dorothy Axsom, executive secretary for the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Indiana. "Most children with this disease do not live to be more than about 14 years old. We're trying' to cram as much fun into this trip to Chicago as we possibly can so they'll have something to look back on." The three-day visit includes a bus tour of Chicago, a visit to the Don McNeil Breakfast Club, where some of the patients will be interviewed by radio-television star Fran Allison, a tour of the Lincoln Park Zoo, and a baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and the Philadelphia Phillies. No Known Cure Before returning to Indianapolis June 20th, the group plans to lour the Museum of Science and Industry, the Planetarium, and the Aquarium. 1 "Although they are victims oE a disease for which there is no known cure," said Mrs. Axsom, "this knowledge has not dampened their spirits or caused them to spend • their remaining days submerged in the sadness of regret. Rather, it has given them an enviable inner strength to compensate for the progressive deterioration of their bodies." Despite their handicaps, said Mrs. Axsom, many muscular dystrophy patients hold down full-time responsible positions. "The president of the Marion County Chapter, Paul Schmidt, has been in a wheelchair since college days — 15 years. He is presently training director at Good-Will Industries here, and was given the Presidential Citation for his contributions in aiding the handicapped." Mrs. Axsom cited another person who has met a great challenge in a courageous manner. Jim Redfern is a freshman at Butler University. He's majoring in journalism and is working his way through school "at great odds." she said. Asked about the attitude of the patients toward their affliction, Mrs. Axsom replied it was "excellent." Many of the youngsters give speeches at fund raising campaigns. They seem to be more philosophical than the adults, and their pluckiness gives strength to their parents and courage to others who are or some day may be muscular dystrophy patients." Mrs. Axsom, who worked in medical research for seven years before volunteering, for her present position, said Marion County j Federation of clubs and served as had the only Muscular Dystrophy!-^-.-!-. ,.,-... _,. ,.i__ ,_.,.• — Association Chapter in .the slate when she took over about a year ago. "Today there are 10," she said, "and 5 more are in the process of being organized." Concerning the excursion to Chicago, she said, "the patients are all very excited about it, especially the younger ones." "Only a few of those going are 20 or older, and the children can hardly wail for Jnue Ifl to arrive." Rochester Monday in Fulton Circuit court the trial of Walter R.
