March of Dimes
Grows in Favor
Proceeds from This
Source Amounted to
$217,000 in 1939
In the campaign to raise funds
for the national Infantile Paralysis
foundation, no method has appealed
to the public mind more than the
"March of Dimes," a measure which
was started in 1938. In the two sea
sons this method has been followed
$298,000 has been contributed to
the campaign fund to fight the dread
The idea will be widely used this
year, according to information re
ceived from headquarters where
Commissioner George Allen of the
District of Columbia has recently
been appointed national chairman.
Allen will work in close cooperation
with all state, county and city chair
men in order to make the work as
far reaching as possible.
The first "March of Dimes" in
1938 resulted in a total of over $81,
000 in silver coins being sent per
sonally by thousands of people to
President Roosevelt at the White
House for the fund. Other contri
butions through the sale of buttons
and through contributions in coin
containers swelled this sum. Last
year, the silver parade of dimes con
verged on the White House from
every corner of the land reaching
stupendous proportions of over
$217,000. Other "March of Dimes"
contributions in checks and bills
added substantially to that figure.
The same plan of distributing the
funds will be followed in this cam
paign as last year. One-half of all
of the "March of Dimes" contri
butions will be returned to the
counties where raised, the other half
going to the National Foundation
for Infantile Paralysis. Arrange
ments have been made so that every
contribution, no matter how small,
will be duly recorded and one-half
will be returned to the county in
which it originated. Furthermore,
the portion of the card bearing the
sender's name and address will be
returned to the county from which
it was sent.
Stories of courage, hope and trag
edy pour constantly into national
headquarters of the committee from
the chairmen of county chapters
scattered throughout the United
States, states Keith Morgan, nation
al campaign chairman. Among these
he cites cases from two points in
Oregon, Union and Klamath coun
ties. Mrs. George Hutchinson of
Union county tells this story:
"We have a young woman, 21
years of age, who is an orphan. She
has been afflicted by infantile par
alysis since she was 11 years old.
We are getting new braces for her
so that she will be much more able
to help herself. The vocational
training organization has agreed to
prepare her for some occupation and
make her self-supporting. She grad
uated from high school with an ex
ceptionally good record. All her
studying was done at home. We feel
that we are rehabilitating one per
son for as nearly a normal life as
can be achieved under the circum
stances." Sam P. Miller, chairman of Kla
math county chapter, writes: "We
have handled three cases. One pa
tient is a girl 14 years old, paralyz
ed from the waist down. At chapter
expense she was sent to a hospital
in Portland. After treatment she
was sent home cured, fully able to
live a normal life.
"For the past two years we have
been helping a woman who receives
treatment in a Portland hospital.
We pay her fare and other necessary
Here in Heppner plans have been
completed for the annual President's
Birthday ball which will be held
Saturday evening, Jan. 27 in the
Elks hall. Tickets are on sale and
it is expected that a crowd equal to
that of 1939 will be on hand for the
event. The local subscription to the
paralysis fund was swelled by $175
thru sale of dance tickets last year.

Farmers, City Men
Air Mutual Problems
A new approach to a mutual un
derstanding of the various problems
which confront both farm and city
people of Oregon is being made
through a series of "farmer-businessman"
meetings which had their
beginning in Yamhill and Umatilla
counties in December and now are
expected to spread to virtually ev
ery county in the state.
The meetings, as held at McMinn-
ville and Pendleton, were sponsored
by the county agricultural conser
vation committees, with the O. S.
C. extension service and county
planning committees cooperating.
City residents were guests of farm
ers at evening dinners which were
followed by open forum discussion
of local agricultural problems. A
similar plan is being followed in
other Oregon counties which are
now planning meetings.
Dinner and discussion meetings
of farm and city people, held on
both a county and community basis,
were tried in several other states
last year and were regarded as very
successful in bringing better un
derstanding of mutual problems, ac
cording to Will Steen of Milton,
chairman of the state AAA commit
"I'm glad to see that they're being
adopted in Oregon counties," he said.
"The state committee hopes that ev
ery county in Oregon will hold one
or more meetings of farm and city
people this winter so that they can
get better acquainted with each oth
er and with their general problems."
