Saline Area Responds Enthusiastically To Call for Emergency Polio Funds Saline and surrounding communities have every right to be proud of themselves,, following . the temendously successful area-wide venture in the current polio fund raising campaign. The ice ceam sticial, held at the high school, last week Wednesday netted $752.20, and other monies received since that time have shoved the figure up to $775.00. This amount added to the regular drive total of $3,341.20 puts Saline's total for the year well over $4,100.00. When the Saline polio committee was asked by County Chairman Leonard Chase to organize for the current emergency fund-raising drive, no one on the committee expected to see the tremendous amount of community spirit develop at this time of the year to put the local drive over with such amazing success. Addressing a group of polio leaders from throughout the county Chairman Chase said, "We're sorry to have to put on a drive at this time of the year, but we've just got to do it somehow." He went on to say that each community should organize its own campaign and do whatever it can to raise funds to meet the emergency. Mothers' marches, direct solicitation and other similar means of raising iunds were FUND CLIMBING Additional contributions until Tuesday noon have brought the total in the Emergency Polio Fund to ?784.20. ruled out by the local committee, and when two of the conl- mittee members almost simultaneously struck upon the idea of a community-wide ice cream social, the idea just grew and snowballed into reality. When committees were organized to put on the ice cream social the enthusiastic response to calls for assistance overwhelmed even the most optimistic. On the night of the social inclement weather forced the social inside the school. However, there was no apparent let up in attendance due to the weather. When the social began cakes poured in by the dozens, and as fast as they could be eaten they were replaced by still more cakes of every kind and description. Later in the evening Art Miller auctioned off the remaining cakes. Left-over pieces of cakes were carefully wrapped and taken to the Washtenaw county infirmary, which gave the ice cream social a slightly wider scope of community service. Mrs. Howard Burr, Saline polio chairman, spoke of still another angle of community service which the social provided as a bv-TTcduct, and that was the very real and deep con- ee'-i that almcct everyene h .s for tb-a drrau c_i~ei_-c, rolio. In af.c_iti___ the c~Ierc:_d spirit of cooperation that appeared from every corner of both Saline and rural areas proved to be something more than just an intangible thing. You could see it with your own eyes, Mrs. Burr- said. The Saline polio committee consists of, in addition, to Mrs. Burr as chairman: Mrs. Paul Reed, Mrs. Alfred Sehmid, Mrs. Edwin Hering, Mrs. George Winkle, and Mrs. Arthur Katz. Anyone still wishing to contribute to the emergency drive can do so by contacting any of the polio committee. Additional information on the local polio campaign can be found on an inside page. Wm. B.
