March of Dimes Sets
Campaign Fund Goal
Increased Number of State
Polio Cases Calls For
Need of More Funds
M.IAMI, Fla.-A goal of $1.050,-
000 was set Monday for the 1953
March of Dimes campaign in Flo-
rida by Joe Hall, state chairman.
"This is a minimum goal," Hall
said, "and I am hoping, along with
thousands of volunteer dimes
workers that we can reach $1.385.-
652, or 50c for every person in
Florida. using the 1950 census fig-
"That would put all of Florida's
67 counties 'in the black.' an ex-
pression we use to show that 50c
pDe capital or better has been
raised." the chairman said.
"I want to emphasize, however,
that no quota is being set for any
individual' county unless that
county sets it-all March of Dimes
giving and work is voluntary." he
He pointed to the great need for
Polio funds, noting that there were
636 cases of Polio in Florida,. an
all-time record, and an increase of
85% over last year.
"We spent almost a half million
dollars for the care of those cas-
es," he added.
"A dozen Florid chapters re-
ceived .over $70,000 from the N~i-
tional Foundation for Infantile
,'Paralysis.:to :help pay bills;-,.and
we had half of the $800,000.' we
raised last year on hand at the
start of 1952", he explained.
"As the 1953 March of Dimes
campaign gets under way, almost
every Florida Polio chapter is
broke, and the NFIP. which had a
record case load of over 55.000. an
increase of 101%.. is S.7 million in

Our Country Right or Wrong
They're the same old words. But, now-a-
days, when a friend says "Happy New Year!",
you can detect a new ring of confidence. The
seasonal greeting contains a measure of warm
.expectation that adds some real flavour to the
100 percent Simon-pure pious hope we've been
dishing out for so long.
And there's good reason. Let's look back a
One year ago we said: "When we open
thatdoor marked '1952', and step in, we will be
.entering one of the most significant years in
"In 1952 we shall have to decide whether
or not we want any more of that cynically-
tamed 'Fair Deal' whether America is go-
ing to yield to continued inflationary pressures
. whether to crawl out of Korea. or to face
the fact that we are in as desperate a war as
ever we have been whether we like social-
ism (,which is kid-glove communism) whe-
ther our country is worth saving."
We made our decision 'in November-on
many fronts-on the farms, where the' cloud-
shadows of Government paternalism were grow-
ing ominous; in the industrial centers, where
-workers rejected union instructions for their pri-
vate judgment; in Wisconsin, where Joe Mc-
Carthy wals returned to the Senate by a rec-
ord majority; and in the South, where the vot-
ers finally rebuked the national leaders who
had perverted their traditional Jeffersonian
And today, our new "shirt-sleeve Adminis-
tration-elect"-which is now in charge, for all
practical purposes, is revealing to us the scope
and power of our.decision. We shall face up to
Korea. We have already declared war on ex-
travagance, in the Federal establishment at
home, in the military, and in our aid program
abroad. At last we are moving effectively and
wholeheartedly to clean out the rats'-nests of
stubversion" in our Government in our UN for-
ces, in the country at large. And we are about
through appeasing the avowed Reds wherever
they tangle, with us.
No wonder we can wish each other "A Hap-
py New Year" and mean it!
For many years past, bleeding Nationalist
China has been begging for a pittance of U. S.
aid to aid their war against the communists in
that country. But, as usual this request had to
go through channels and was killed a few times
shelved a few more times, and turned down a
few more times. The result was that the Na-
tionalist China government was driven to the
island of Formosa by the communists.
About three years ago "Life" magazine ran
an article, on the Chinese soldier fighting the
communists. These soldiers raised their own
food, MADE their own weapons and equip-
ment, and, according to the article, stood four
deep in the trenches waiting for a man to fall
so one could take up his gun and fight. It was
a picture of determination to beat the commun-
ist at all costs. Maybe you read the article. It
was ,a very impressive piece of journalism.
Doing all of this on their own hook they asked
for a little financial and armament aid from the
U. S. A., their ally and avowed friend of the
big war just past. The politicians in theU. S.
turned a deaf ear and as a result the outgunned
Chinese were driven back.
Today we are fighting those same Chinese
and losing hundreds of American men every
day, just because the politicians couldn't see
where China deserved a small munitions loan.
Now we see that with the session of Con-
gress coming up the politicians are predict-
ing that possible aid for Nationalist, China is
coming up. With Nationalist China driven from
her mainland and with thousands of American
men slain in Korea to date, Congress is thinking
about aid to Nationalist China. That's just about
like the guy that shut the barn door after the
horse was already gone.
One thing you can give Russia credit for;
anyone that will fight her enemies gets all in the
world they need to do said fighting with. All
except the manpower that is.

needed in building the defense of our country."
