( on 6) Community Card Party To Aid Paralysis Fund The annual campaign for the raising of funds with which to combat infantile paralysis is getting under way all over the United States, and Mount Pulaski as well as adjoining com- munities will join with thousands of others to *do their part in fighting this dreaded disease. County Chairman Floyd Heckel of Lincoln, working in 'connection with Albert Arnold, state secretary of the Elks, and Jack Gordon, an active member of the crippled chil- dren's work carried on in this county, were in Mount Pulaski last Saturday and appointed Harry J.

Full and complete information rel- ative to the event will be made at the earliest possible mo- ment. The general committee on arrangements which has been appointed by the chairman consists of: Austin Schaffenacker, Mrs. Ellis Downinq, Mrs. Lloyd Harqis and Mrs. Dan Fuhrer. Other committees will be formed to care for the vari- ous duties necessary to staging the event. This Communi/ Obligated This community owes  great deal to the work of the crippled chfldrens committee of the county, for in the post two or three years many hundreds of dollars have been spent on local youngsters to restore them to health end vigor. In return for this, the community has contributed but little to- word the fighting of infantile paralysis. 50 Percent Remains in Counfy One-half of the money raised in this community, as well NUMNR $48,000 Is Given This Community Clarence Tomlln$ Wills Property o Community Work The finest bit of news that ] ever come into th mmm was revealed this week with filing of the will of Claremm linson, who left 1 at $48,000 to Mount community to be used for .mmsty we:ar In creating a perpetual fund, the  of whi I be spent within the Mount Pulaski , trustees ero appointed: Its.
