"Cerro Gordo county like so many other communities suffered a real epidemic of polio this year," Mr. Thomson said, adding that tarting in early September 47 :ases have been reported to the ocal chapter.

The fund raising drive will be during the period from Jan. 14 to 31. "Our chapter cannot continue indefinitely to receive financial assistance from the national foundation," the campaign director emphasized. "We should and must stand on our own feet with the exception of extraordinary demands on our funds during epidemics such as we have experienced this year. Our local chapter and the national foundation need your support in the 1949 fund raising campaign more than ever before." Winter Preparation The Jan. 14-31 period is the only fund-raising drive of the national foundation. It is held during the winter so that when the hot summer months bring with them the threat of infantile paralysis more than 2,800 chapters serving every county in the nation will be ready and able to meet any emergency that may arise. It is estimated that the cost of fighting the epidemic and treating polio patients irt 1948 will cost the national foundation approximately $14 000,000. -rv, Half the funds raised remains in the treasuries of local chapters to provide continued care and treatment. This includes hospitalization, medication - and nursing care, purchase of braces and crutches and wheel chairs and t.ierapy and rehabilitation services.
