New Crisis In Polio Fight Increases Appeal Dr. Creed Haymond, state fund raising director for the March of Dimes sends the following message mes-sage to fellow workers and the public: A new crisis in the Tight against polio is facing us this year, and makes necessary an Intensifying of our efforts for the remainder of the campaign. In the human field trials with the use of gamma globulin the past two years, it has been found that the prevention of paralysis in polio is an accomplished fact, and those so treated are temporarily tempor-arily protected against this crippling crip-pling aftermath. In the light of this information, the National Foundation for Infantile In-fantile Paralysis has contracted to purchase all of the available gamma gam-ma globulin on hand, together with the available amount to be produced between January 1 and June 30, 1953. This latter will amount to 3,090, 000 cc at an estimated cost of $5,000,000. The total amount available avail-able "for polio in 1953 from all sources will be 6,50,000 cc, or 934, 000 average doses. As the cost of the "contracted for" gamma globulin $5,000,000 was not foreseen in the estimated estimat-ed needs for 1953, this vast sum is an additional demand on the hu-manitarianism hu-manitarianism of the people. Our story will need to be specific spec-ific as to the needs of the Foundation, Found-ation, and our enthusiasm such that it will give life to our appeal. ap-peal. With less than two weeks left tell the story of polio with the unselfishness that our responsibility respon-sibility demands. Polio is relentlessly relent-lessly growing, and this is our last chance to dress it down to size for 1953. With 46,000,000 children and adolescents ad-olescents in the age group who may need gamma globulin this year as a temporary protection against polio, and only 934,000 average doses available, you can see that our greatest efforts will fall far short of meeting the total to-tal needs. Our supreme efforts are needed to meet the minimal estimated es-timated goal.

For 1 have been going through our subscription subscrip-tion records this past week to send out notices where a subscription subscrip-tion has expired. And it was pleasing to see how few notices were necessary and what a sound and solid circulation circula-tion the Chronicle has. Leamington Leaming-ton was a bright spot, for we send 29 Chronicles there, and there were no subscribers delinquent. delin-quent. In addition to the papers we send within the county, it is surprising sur-prising what a large amount goes out in the state and beyond to both coasts. Two Chronicles go to Alaska, one to Carol Hansen at Anchorage, and another to Gordon Edwards, at Fairbanks. Louis Schoenberg took the Chronicle all the years he was in Alaska, and keeps it coming com-ing now to Deseret. We have been sending a paper each week to Elder Eugene Hol-man, Hol-man, in South Africa. Elder Paul Theobald was taking it in South America, but wanted more speed. So now his paper goes to Hinckley, Hinck-ley, where his parents clip items of Interest to him and send on air mail And Chronicles are going to service ser-vice men readers in all directions. A new one today is the paper of Carl Stoneking, with a New York APO. He will read his paper in England, where he is now based. Jack Clark and Jeff Carter are two others getting the paper in England. Carl had written his parents that he recently met Jeff and Nella Carter in London for a good visit. Boys in Korea read the Chronicle, and in Japan. Brent Lovell. with a New York APO. reads his paper in Puerto Rico. Sometimes they are weeks late arriving, but it is still news to those far away from home. It is pleasant to know that the paper is in demand for the hometown home-town news, and for that, great credit goes our correspondents who do excellent work in sending in their local news. You; too. can add to the interest inter-est of our readers by telliri s; u3 your news, at any time. We've, got to keep circulating. I Delta, Utah, Thursday, Delta And Hinckley Meet Friday In Annua!

Utah Legislature Discusses Gas Tax Refund Welby Young, veteran farm representative re-presentative from Wasatch county, coun-ty, last week introduced in the House of Representatives two bills reoiuesting refund of gasoline tax on gasoline used in off-highway farm tractors and machinery, and stationary engines. Two bills will authorize this discriminatory dis-criminatory tax to be refunded on the basis that each farmer will receive 85 of the 5c a gallon he pays on each gallon of gas used in his farm machinery, with 15 of the gasoline tax being retained re-tained by the Tax Commission to pay the cost of administration. This provision of the law combats arguments of those who oppose giving farmers their refund on the basis that the cost of administration administra-tion would be prohibitive because in this legislation the farmers would pay from their own money the cost of administering the program. pro-gram. Other controversial issues of extreme ex-treme importance to agriculture and rural Utah which will appear in the House in the next few days will be legislation to reapportion the two chambers of the state leg islature giving one senator to each county and reapportioning the state legislature on population basis. ba-sis. Unless legislation is enacted which solves the reapportionment problem and leaves the majority of the members of one chamber of the legislature elected from rural communities it will mean that Weber, We-ber, Salt Lake and Utah counties will control all elected officers In this state, leaving no place for a check or redress or appeal for the sparsely populated areas of our state. . On the income tax issue which farmers have announced they oppose op-pose reducing, this position is made on the basis that our best information indicates reduction of income tax will mean an increase in property tax next year, particularly partic-ularly if such reduction of income tax is made before the state's school survey committee makes its report on the needs of our state school svstem.
