UNITED
NEGRO COLLEGE
FUND
fFUND the bastard the bastar
New York—Improved educa
tional opportunity for young
Negro men and women is one
of the most constructive and
non-controversiai projects for
the betterment of inter-racial
understanding open to Ameri
cans today, Mrs. Chauncey L.
Waddell of Riverside, N. Y.,
in accepting chairmanship of
the Greater New York Wo
men’s Division of the United
Negro College fund’s 1948 cam
paign, said at a press conferen
ce yesterday (Friday) at the
Fund’s headquarters, 38 East
57th Street.
At a meeting of the worn-1
men’s committee Mrs. Waddell
announced that the group’s
for the campaign opening Ap
ril 13 will be $100,000. Thirty
two private Negro colleges
will benefit from this annual
nation-wide drive, which is
headed by John D. Rockefeller,
Jr., chairman of the National
Council, and William E. Cotter
national campaign chairman.
“In appealing for aid and
interest in the United Negro
College Fund, our women’s di
vision which is inter-racial, is
working realistically on a pro
said Mrs. Waddell. “It is not
blem of immediate importance”
mist realism, but a sincere de
sire to further the splendid
work being done by trirty-two
prompts so many of us to give
our time and energy to this act
ivity.
“The ranks of Negro doctors,
nurses, ministers, lawyers and
teachers are comospedof grad
uates of these colleges”, Mrs.
Wdadell declared. “By their
achievements they perform a
valuable service for the entire
country, but there are not e
nough o f these professional
leaders to do the job required.
There is only one Negro doctor
for every 4.000 Negroes, while
there is one white doctor for
every 900 of the white populat
ion. Similar disparities exist in
all lnes of endeavor. Negro stu
dents who have graduated
from accredited Negro colleges
have proved their capacity for
devoted community leadership.
Any citizen, whatever may be
his race or religious belief,
need have no misgiving about
helping ambitious young Neg
ro students to widen their in
tellectual horizons and become
valuable assts to our national
life.”

MARCH OF DIMES
Campaign receipts for the
recent March of Dimes Fund
Appeal in Nebraska have rea
ched a net total of $289,353.19,
according to Chancellor R. G.
Gustavson, State March of
Dimes Campaign Chairman.
This is approximately 4 per
cent under last year’s all-time
high total of $298,987. 23, and
some counties, according to Dr.
Gustavson, have indicated that
their reports are not yet en
tirely final. The Chancellor ex
pressed his personal apprecia
tion and that of the National
Foundation for the continued,
fine support of this important
work.
Fifty per cent of the contri
butions remain with the local
chapters of the National Foun
dation in the counties in whicn
collected, to provide needed aid
for local polio patients. The
other fifty per cent goes to
support the National Founda
tions’ program of research, pro
fessional training and emerg
ency epidemic aid, Chancellor
Gustavson stated.
More than 30 per cent of all
infantile paralysis cases report
ed in Nebraska ssince the State
Health Department began
keeping records in 1920, have
been recorded during the past
two years, the State Chairman
commented. He added further
x - - r -
[that Nebraska county chapters
of the National Foundation
have, during these past two
vears, expanded more than
$425,000 in direct medical aid |
to polio patients within the
state.
“We find people very willing
co support the work of the Nat
onal Foundation.” the Chan
re 1 lor commented, “because
nost everyone is aware of the
aluable aid rendered through
he local chapters and of the
:remendous importance of the
rontinuation o f the research
irogram —research, the result
>f which may have far-reach
ing implications not only in
the infantile paralysis fight
but in the whole pield of virus
diseases. ”
Many of the highest average
net perf capita contributions
have 'been reported this year,
as last, from counties in the
west portion of the state. Me
Pherson, one of Nebraska’s
more sparsely populated count
ies located in the sand hill area,
capita contributions of $1.00.
Other high per capita contrib
utors amoung the counties
with populations of less than
j 6,000 were: Sioux, $ .95; Deu
el, $ .69; Grant, $ .45 and Ban
ner, $ .43.
Among counties witn popul
ation from 6,000 and under 12,
500, Hitchcock County repor
ted $ .67 per person; Washing
ton, $ .58; Kearney, $ .55, Da
wes, $ .55; Wayne. $ .45 and
Sheridan, $ .43. Dakota coun
ty which last year reported $.06
per capita—the lowest of any
county in the state—this year
brought it's per capita contri
butions up to better than $.17.
Amonk the counties with
populations of 12,500 and un
der 19.000. Cedar County is
high with a per capita contrib
ution of $ .48. Other high con
tributions in this group were:
Dawson, $.35; Burt, 34, and
Saunders, $.32.
Among counties having pop
ulations of 19,000 and less
than 35,000, Dodge County
once again led with a per cap
ita contribution of $.52. Sco
tts Bluff reported $.41; Pla- :
tte, $.27, and Richardson, $.24.
Lancaster County's net per
capita contributions of over
$.16 cents was high for coun
ties with a populatino in ex
cess of 35,000.
Vegetable Fuel Oils
Vegetable oils, abundant in Bra
zil, are being used to contribute to
the solution of the fuel problem in
that country. The idea of using
vegetable oil as a substitute for pe
troleum is not a recent one. Ever
since mineral oil began to get
scarde, experiments have been
made in different countries with off
of vegetable origin.
