Caption: Helping To Set Her Free - This brave little youngster at University hospital is winning in her fight against the effects of infantile paralysis. She is gradually freeing her imprisoned muscles and limbs from the shackles of the enemy. And her courageous spirit is already free, ready to grasp little joys, little pleasures, as she gets a new hold on life and all life offers. University hospital, with its special equipment, to which is now added a warm water pool, is helping her and her companions, young and old, to regain the use of their bodies. Proceeds of the President Birthday ball at Intramural Building tonight will help in expanding the freedom of her spirit by providing. comforts and means of enjoyment to cheer her in the long, long fight. Seventy per cent of the proceeds of the ball stay here; 30 per cent go to Warm Springs Foundation for research in preventing and curing infantile paralysis. Tickets, $1, per couple, may be obtained at the door tonight. How could a dollar be better spent?
