Cancer Society Has Christmas Card Offer Announcement is made by the Iowa division of the American Cancer Society of the immediate availability of a "Navajo Madonna" holiday greeting card. Design for the card was contributed by Ted DeGrazia, famed artist. It features the Madonna in a white dress, with a scarlet shawl. The Child is wrapped in a purplish banket, She is portrayed as a Navajo, with Her dark hair in braids, while the hair of the child, also dark, is clipped. Cards are available in return for a cancer control contribution, with credit going to the local chapter. For each box of ten cards and envelopes, the contribution should be a minimun of $3. The Iowa Division stresses that it is not in the greeting card Business. These cards are being provided, however, in return for generous contributions in support of the society's programs of research, education and service. The division pays for the cards in addition to the cost of shipping charges from New York City, and must underwrite the costs of repackaging and distributing cards in Iowa.
