Typical is the case of St. Fran- cis Hospital in Peoria, Ill., ill the heart of last summer's polio re- gion. Splendidly equipped as it is to take care of any normal out- break of the disease, the furious onslaught of the malady in the summer of 1946 soon found the hospital's facilities overtaxed. Not only did it receive patients from its own county, but 18 surround- ing counties sent victims of the disease to it for treatment.

In discussing the severity of the 1946 epidemic, Basil O'Connor, President of the National Founda- tion, revealed that the outbreak was the worst in the history of the Foundation and second only to the great epidemic of 1916, the worst in recorded history. The 1947 March of Dimes, the only means the National Founda- tion has for collecting funds, will take place between January 15th and 30th. As in previous years, all counties retain half of all the col- lections made in their territory. The other half is sent to National Headquarters to finance research into polio; to conduct a widespread program of public education, and to form a pool of funds to take care of any epidemic which may break out anywhere in the country.
