Because polio hasn't been licked yet- Here are four big reasons why the March of Dimes must get our enthusiastic support. 1- Thousands of polio patients are still being stricken. These add heavily to chapter rolls already swollen by those being helped by the Foundation as 1956 opened. 2. The most seriously stricken still depend on iron lungs and other mechanical aids supplied out of the March of Dimes funds for every breath they draw. Cutting down on that program would be like pulling out the electric plugs on an iron lung. 3. Research work can't be cut. The Salk vaccine was a scientific * ^ break-through but one which must be widened and followed up. Other, still better vacc/hes may emerge from additional research. 4. There's a pressing need for more trained manpower at treatment centers. Children now being crippled must not become forgotten casualties when the long fight to conquer polio is finally won.
