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.

Ten Pennies Make A Dime: Preparing for their annual basement "Penny Carnival," the children of Mr. and Mrs. Oral Euper of 11928 Whitmore Lake Rd., Whitmore Lake, place finishing touches on a fish pond and ball-toss booth designed to raise pennies for the New March of Dimes from neighborhood children between 1:30 and 4 p.m. Saturday. Linda, 13, tests a fish pole (left) and Susan 5, surveys the basement as Terry, 15, points out the mouth of Bozo the Clown to his sister, Nancy, 10, who is winding up to throw. The Euper children have conducted their unofficial "Carnival" for the March of Dimes each year since Nancy was stricken with polio six years ago. It started with six or seven neighborhood children and gradually grew. More than 50 are expected to watch a magic show, have their fortunes told and play the booths for pennies this Saturday.
