Caption: She'll Walk Again: When you're ten and can't walk and run like other children because your legs are crippled from infantile paralysis, you might have cause to be disheartened. But not this smiling youngster. She exercises her legs daily in the walker at University hospital knowing that some day she will be able to take off the braces and walk again. The walker is one of the many facilities at University hospital to help infantile patients regain their health. To fight infantile paralysis on a national scale is the purpose of the foundation to be established with the proceeds of the President's birthday balls to be held tomorrow night in Ann Arbor and throughout the country.
