"With this in mind," he said, "we will establish Heart Collection centers in each community. We will publicize the location of these centers and residents will be en¬ couraged to bring their gifts to the nearest center or mail them to the center of their choice." Contributions from the Huntley area should be sent to Mrs. Don¬ ald Enstrom, 12 Coral St., P.O. Box 373, Huntley, Illinois.

Dr. Tambone emphasized the need for increased contributions, saying "the Heart Fund supports vital research which has already been responsible for major advan¬ ces in the control of heart and blood vessel diseases. It has also been responsible for educational pro¬ grams which enable the public to Safeguard itself against the occur¬ rence of these diseases." He said "I am convinced that the citizens of McHenry County will give and give generously to this very worth while cause."
