Stressing the need for making
the 1949 drive a success, Helen
Sherman stated that "last year was ;
the worst year since 1916 as far as i
the number of polio cases is con- ]
cerned. 25,000 cases were reported, 1
which is one of the worst epidemics
of its kind in medical history.” j
Miss Sherman also gave three i
points for student consideration— '
the increase of polio patients, the i
ligh cost of care, and the fact that
•he dollar does not go as far as it
mce did.
"The 1948 drive was the most
successful we have ever had. How
ever, previous drives this year
lave met with little luck. We hope
hat this drive will be a success."
Sponsors of the drive are the
nembers of Alpha Phi Omega, na
ional service fraternity. Virgil
[Ticker, president of the fraternity,
