The goal set for the county is "not less than $16,000," according to A. J. Thomson, campaign chairman. This is double the amount of last year's receipts but is necessary to assure ability to continue service to all present and future cases where assistance is necessary, the chairman said. "It would seem unthinkable to curtail needed service for lack of a little added effort by the community which has so generously met every demand on them in the past." Blanks Distributed Methods of conducting the campaign will .be in general the same as those of previous years. Contribution blanks are being placed in the mails addressed to all industrial and business firms in the county. Special family contribution sheets are also being mailed to every family in the county. It is hoped that persons receiving these will make a quick response by putting them in the return mail or calling at the headquarters at 310 North Federal. First to Make Donation Already haying called at the local office with his contribution for this year's drive is Russell K. Amling, 16, a polio victim in 1944. This is the 3rd year for Russell to be the 1st in the county to make his donation. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. L. J. Amling, 109 14th N. W., and has recovered 100 per cent from the disease. The polio picture at this time in the county, the state and throughout the country as a whole is much more serious than a year ago, the campaign chairman pointed out. At this time in 1948 the county was unable to report anw new cases of polio in 1947. Now it must report a real epidemic in the county for 1948,' a total of 47 cases with all Hut 2 occurring in the last 3 months of the year. 4 Cases Hospitalized The county's share of the 1948 March of Dimes was approximately $3,500. A total of $12,500 is Still owed the national foundation for funds advanced here in the 1945 epidemic, Mr. Thompson said. In addition another $3,000 was ad- varned to the county last December. Four bad cases from the county are still hospitalized and costing about $40 a day to continue for from 60 to 90 days more at least, he said. The county gets 50 per cent of the receipts from the 1949 campaign. Louis Golien Dies in Hospital Funeral Services Are Not Complete Louis Golien, 74, of 19 2nd I\'.
