Need Vaccine NEW YORK MV-Even if your . child has had polio, he should be inoculated with the Salk vaccine, a spokesman for the .National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis said yesterday.

The 16 nonfinancial corporations with earnings in excess of 100 million dollars are led by General Motors with 1954 profit of $805,973,897. Jersey Standard Oil is second with $584,793,158, followed closely by the Bell Telephone Systems' earnings of $548,931,223. DuPont reports $344,386,015. Texas Co. is fifth with $226,140,761. Then in order of size come Genera! Electric, California Standard, U.S.Steel, Socony-Vacuum, Gulf Oil, Humble (Jersey affiliate), Sears Roebuck, Bethlehem Steel, Shell Oil and Indiana Standard. Pord Motors is the sixteenth, on basis of estimates only, since it does not publicly report its earnings. But in 1953 Its earnings were estimated in excess of 100 million, and on the basis of sales its 1954 earnings should be in the same class. If 1955 lives up to the promise of Us booming early months, there should be still more companies pushing into the billion dollar asset group and into the 100 million or better profit class this year.
