CAMPAIGN DIREaOR EDGAR H. FREEMAN DEMOCRATIC
APPOINTED FOR NEW TAKEN TO JOHNSON
MARCH OF DIMES CITY FOR BURIAL
“Moving from the successful
fight against polio, the 1962 New
March of Dimes will support one
of the most potent medical pro-
grams ever launched against
chronic crippling disease,” J. O.
LaHaye said today.
Mr. LaHaye’s statement was
made as he accepted appointment
to direct the New March of Dimes
campaign in Bandera County from
January 2 through January 31.
The appointment was announced
jointly by Dr. W. R. White, State
Chairman for the March of Dimes,
and Curtis Smith, State Repre-
sentative of the National Founda-
Mr. LaHaye pointed out that the
New March of Dimes organization,
while continuing its 24-year suc-
cessful fight against polio, is also
attacking crippling Birth Defects
“Funds are needed to support
research which offers real hope
of discovering preventatives and
cures for these diseases. This is
the program that developed first
the Salk Vaccine and then the
Sabin Vaccine—exclusively with
March of Dimes funds. And we
must continue our program of
training vitally needed medical and
scientific personnel through Na-
tional Foundation Fellowships and
“Perhaps even more important
at the moment, we must aid those
already stricken by these crip-
plers. Marc hof Dimes funds are
being used now by chapters in
many parts of the Nation to es-
tablish or support Special Treat-
ment Centers and Evaluation Clin-
ics, where specialized treatment
and diagnosis can be given.” Mr.
“Chapters with available funds
are also authorized to aid victims
of all types of Birth Defects where
such help is needed.
“Of course, The National Foun-
dation is still meeting its respon-
sibilities to aid past and present
victims of paralytic polio.
“We are faced with a big job,
but you can be sure your dimes
will do it again if during this
coming January you say ‘Yes’ to
the New March of Dimes.”
