546 N. High, SALEM
By JEAN ROBERTS
The new Mehama-Mill City high
way, which has been in remand for
-everal years is causing discomfort
to many Mehama families.
Clearing a right-of-way for the
new highway is progressing rapidly
and changing the appearance of this
community. A wide swath of timber
and brush has been cut along Stout
creek and passes so close to the How
ard Ross home that they have pur
chased other property and plan to
The Ray Branch family is wonder*
ing about a water supply as the
highway is slated to cross their well.
Their new double garage was moved
also. It is now found that the yard
fence will also have to be changed
to make the garage accessible.
Three families, Small’s Berry’s and
Cox’s, had to vacate their homes and
search for a place to live. The houses
were purchased by the highway com
mission and sold by sealed bids. They
are now being moved.
The Oran Small family managed
to repurchase their home and are
moving it across the present highway
to another site, near the Southern
Bar BQ. Another of the houses was
purchased by Beilin’s and the other
by Fred Lindemann.
Teeter’s apple trees and Roten’s
walnut tree, apple trees, and septic
tank have been uprooted by the
progress of the clearing work.

“Lend Me A Hand.”
That is the slogan of the 1951
March of Dimes which will open
here and throughout the nation
on January 15. The four words aie
expressed eloquently by the
poster-portrait of a bright-faced
American boy whose arms have
been crippled by polio. He is Lar
ry McKenzie, 12 years old, one of
some 54,000 men, women and chil
dren to whom a helping hand was
extended by the March of Dimes
In three successive years, polio
has struck more than 100,000 peo
ple in the United States. In that
time it has cost the National Foun
dation for Infantile Paralysis
$58,000,000 to help them, as Well
as earlier victims still needin
care. Since 1938, the patient-can
outlay alone has been $94,000.00(1
in March of Dimes funds.
But these are only inanimate
figures—the real story of the
March of Dimes is people. That
story is unfolded in hospitals, re
habilitation centers and clinics
throughout the country where
real people—not “cases” — are
fighting their way back to useful
lives. It is told in homes, factories
and offices by men and women
who have made comebacks over
great odds and at great cost.
The knowledge that the indi
vidual battle can be and often ¡3
won should stimulate everyone to
back the fight against polio. Trag
ically enough, tne ranks of polio
sufferers will be increased this
vear. We cannot control that—yet.
But we can all lend a hand
