Polio cases in future years will be reduced due to the Salk vaccine, but caring for the pa tients we now have is the greatest problem. 2. Douglas County in 1955 had over 299 patients who must be taken care of. 3. Almost all of the Douglas County March of Dimes money | stays in the County but help is I still needed from the National Foundation. ___ 4. In every year over $100,000 is spent. Mild cases might cost only a few hundred dollars, but | seriouslv involved cases cost as J high as $15,000 per year. 5. Averaged out, j County' expenses are from $100,000 to $120,000 per year for patient care. , 6. Polio is a sporadic thing and an epidemic might break out any | day, thus the theme of this year s j campaign, “Polio isn’t licked yet 7. Polio cases still develop even with the use of the Salk vaccine: most are not paralytic, but still involve some treatment. ■ 8 The Salk vaccine is designed j to prevent polio paralysis, not; the po'xo infection. 9. After the first vaccine shot an interval of seven to 10 days is necessary for antibody product ion. Some children though they have received the vaccine, con tract polio before the antibodies are completely through the sys tem. 10. Recommended schedule for Salk vaccine shots - two doses, the second preferably two to four weeks from the first and a third or boosVr shot at least seven months after the second shot and before the next polio season. 11. The sensitizing effect of the first shot will endure in most cases the better part of a year. There is no need to begin over again if the second shot is missed. 12. Scientists do not yet know the duration of the shots, or when another will be needed for re newed protection. 13. The polio vaccination pro-1 gram financed by the March of I Dimes calls for two shots for children in the first and second grades. 14. The five to nine year old group comes first because that ^ is the age bracket with the high est rate. 15. Second highest age group is from one to five. After nine the trend decreases. 16.

Greenwood School Does Much Good I would like to call to the atten tion of readers of the charitable work that is being done for Negro boys and girls in Greenwood, Mississippi, the scene of the slay ing of the Till boy, of Chicago. The Sisters of St. Joseph, and the Franciscan Fathers, of Pulaski, Wisconsin, have conducted a school in this area for the past three years for Negro children. They are working at present under serious financial burdens as more an* more children seek admittance to the school. A school lunchroom was built in September of this year, to pro vide decent eating quarters for the children. A medical clinic which provides medical needs for the Negro people of this area needs medica tions of all sorts. Clothes for children and adults are sorely in need. It would be a generous gesture in the part of readers to help this noteworthy cause by helping' this Negro mission become a liv-1 ing foundation to the memory of young Till.

A. V. Sorensen, president of the Omaha Chamber of Commerce, which is coordinating the campaign in the city, said “Operation Pork Lift” is the result of a request from Council Bluffs and Potta wattamie County representatives to participate in such a drive sim ultaneously in the two cities. The campaign, he said, will ser ve a two-fold purpose: first, en courage the consumption of pork and thus relieve the market sur plus situation; and second, help ourselves to better health by eat ing more pork in greater variety. “We have a strong regard for the problem facing our farm friends who have a surplus of pork,” Mr. Sorensen added. “We are going to help our neighbors by buying their products, and in turn, help our own economy.” As “Operation Pork Lift” began in Omaha, Mayor John Rosenblatt replied to Des Moines Mayor Ray Mills who, Tuesday, called atten tion to a similar drive being held the same dates in his city. Mayor Mills called on Des Moines residents to “out-eat Oma ha citizens”, pointing out that “Des Moines can do a better job than the Nebraska city of cuting into pork surpluses.” “We challenge Mayor Mills’ statement that Des Moines can do | a better job than Omaha”, Mayor ! Rosenblatt said. “We have a rep uatation here in Omaha of getting big jobs done, and “Operation Pork Lift” gives us another oppor tunity to prove it.” He asserted that Omahans will rally to the support of “Operation Pork Lift”, out-buying and out doing the Des Moines community in me campaign . Early this week, in company with Chamber President A. V. Sorensen, Mayor Rosenblatt visited the Union Stock Yards Company— the world’s largest livestock and meat-packing center— to watch the unloading of top quality meat type hogs. “We’re extremely proud of our market, and the products it pro vides from thousands of midwest farms and ranches,” he said. “We’re big business in livestock, and we’ll be big business in ‘Op eration Pork Lift’.” During the three-day campaign, Omaha restaurants and hotels will feature pork on their menus. Schools, hospitals and other groups will participate. And O maha housewives will be able to buy a variety and quantity of pork cuts at their local markets at current, reasonable prices. Representatives of the U. S. De partment of Agriculture are in O maha to assist in informing the buying public about pork values. Is Charles At' he End Of The Line? Los Angeles, Calif. (CNS) Ezzard Charles has been knocked out only five times in his 111 fight career, but the beating he got this week at the hands of young and un known Jack Johnson may mark the end of the line for Charles. The 34 year old Cincinnatian was hurt from the second round when his lip was badly cut. In the sixth 28 year old Johnson scored the technical knockout. Where Charles will head from now is anybody’s guess but the wise guys are predicting it’s all over for Ezzard.
