Volunteers are being sought in aU areas <rf the county, since a to¬ tal (rf at least LOW vduntwrs are needed to do a thorou^ **. .If' John L. Boehm, president of the ten-county organization, stated this week that over 500 intercst«d men, wwnen and teens have already of¬ fered their services to help raise funds for this well-known agency. It should be noted for the bene¬ fit of those who wish to know where the funds go that are raised local¬ ly that only 30 per cent leaves the area — the balance is available for use of the handicapped on the local level. The 30 per cent is sent to the state and national associations is spent i» the national research programs sponsored by U.C.P. — a very necessary part of the progrMn and service of this organiation. Withooi tfte research program, the vaccines for measles might never have been perfected — nor would it have been discovered that'nea- les contacted by an e:q>ectant mother would be the cause of cere- bzral palsy in her newborn. Mrs. Boehm stated that locaily, U.C.P. is working with the coun¬ cil of Health, Education and Wel¬ fare agencies of McHenry County towards a more comiwehen«ive health plan for our residents. For anyone wishing to help out by marching in the January 12th door-to-door drive, you may call Mrs. Dormand Perrin in Harvard; Ray Rohlwing in Marengo; Mrs. Raymond Bock in Richmond; Mrs. John Boehm in McHenry and Mrs. Robert Schultz in HunUey.

Among these every year is die collapse of a mmibei of snow-shovelers. If you are sure that you're phy¬ sically fit, go ahead with the snow- shoveling task, the American Med¬ ical Association says. But if there is any do<^, AMA suggests: Get the pob done some other way — hire someone, or use power equipment. It is mudi less expensive to employ these alternatives than to risk health imparimetvt or death, ."VMA emphasizes. Even if you are physically fit. AMA notes, if it is safer to use a small shovel, filling it only partly. If posible, it also is better to push the snow rather than lift it. By thus lightening the load, it's explained, it is not necessary to tense the diaphragm and abdominal muscles. There consequently is no significant increase in pfeesure within the chest cavity or increase in circulatory demand within the heart walls. Frequently, AMA says, the prt>b- iMn with snow-shoveling is aggra¬ vation of an existing heart condi¬ tion. When such a condition exists, breathing cold air while tmder frtiy- sical strain may cause a spasm of small arteries serving the heart This usually can be avoided, AMA advises, by wearing a cold, weather Caatiaaedi ea Pegs Foar NOTICE Mr. Art Kahl announced today that all Chiistmas trees will be picked up this Saturday, January 4, 1969!
