Brand Business Manager
Every year about this time many of the papers
magazines bill-boards and more recently even the tele-
vision and radio spots are filled with pleas from all over
the nation to help in tne March of Dimes.
Have you ever thought much about what is behind
the dimes and dollars that pour into the containers by
every cash register in nearly every business? I doubt if
as a whole the American public has given much thought
to the action behind the scenes. Therefore for a few
moments let's you and I go behind the more familiar
scenes and get a look at what really the March of Dimes
means and does.
Rehabilitation centers have been organized all over
the nation in an effort to help the millions of people
stricken annually with polio birth defets and crippling
diseases to re-adjust to the new world in which they have
found themselves and to be able to meet that world on its
Where do these rehabilitation centers get the neces-
sary funds for their' buildings equipment and salaries
for the specially trained workers? Part of this enormous
amount comes from the annual March of Dimes drive.
But the fight against these three enemies of society
does not stop nor does it actually begin at the rehabili-
tation ceners. Much of the individual hospitalization and
out-patient treatmen is paid for hrough the March of
Dimes Foundation. Iron lungs although used less fre-
quently today along with braces crutches walkers and
wheel-chairs have been provided by that extra change
you clropped into the cash register containers or by the
dimes and dollars you gave the mothers as they marched
along the side of the Teens Against Polio and the Polio
We have mentioned some of the weapons we now
have but what: about tomorrow? Who is going to pay
for the much needed research that is going on now and
that must continue to go on? Who is going to finance
the training of therapists doctors nurses technicians
and scientists that will be needed tomorrow? Who is going
to help TDiiild and equip new hospitals and rehabilitation
centers? Who is going to keep the small spark of hppe
burning for these millions of our countrymen who have
been stricken by either one or in rare cases a combina-
tion of polio birth defects and other crippling diseases?
Who is the March of Dimes? Is it not you the aver-
age American happy-go-lucky college student? Is it not
you the learned professor that is leading and directing
America's youth? Is it not you the alumni of this Uni-
versity that in a sense reflect the thoughts and opinions
of their alma mata? Is it not you the supporter and
benefactor of this school?
No I do not think it is any of you but rather it is all
-of you the college student the. professor the alumni the
supporter and benefactor that make up 180 million
.Americans that contribute yearly to the March of Dimes.
Your neighbor your friend your sister or brother
or your son or daughter may be a victim of one of these
enemies of socitey. Are you doing your part to help?
