It is hoped collections In Wood River will be high this year to help offset the great amount of monaf spent for local polio cases in 1949. Last year, $1320.08 was collected in the city while $11,573.79 was spent for polio cases within the city. Twenty percent of all the money spent in the county was spent in Wood River. According to J. W. Kelly, chairman of the Madison County chapter, there were 177 cases of polio in Madison County in 1949. Ninetyfour were new cases. There were 83 holdover cases from previous years. In stressing the need for a large collection to be realized through the campaign, Kelly pointed out that from 65 to 70 percent of the new cases will be added to the continued-care cases the following year. The county chapter still is giving aid to cases which originated as early as 1940, in some cases supplying child victims with new sets of braces as they outgrow old ones. "The need in Madison County is greater this year than ever before and unless Madison County and the rest of the United States contributes generously, through the March of Dimes, it may become necessary to curtail either the research program or the patient-care program for 1950," Kelly said. Fifty percent of all money collected in Madison County stays in the county fund, and the other 50 percent is forwarded to the national foundation for the research and epidemic founds. The total amount collected In the county last year was $31,538.56 of which $15,769.28 was retained by Madison County for. patient care. Because $54,325.86 was spent for polio cases in the county, it necessitated an advance of $38,5^6.58 from the national foundation. Nationally, there were 42,000 cases of polio in the United States in 1949 and $31,000,000 was spent by the national foundation on patient care.
