Mary Jo, herself tormented after seven operations and three months in an iron lung, never forgot Job's words. At Ken- nedy Memorial Hospital, Bright- on, a nun and physical thera- pist suggested that since the plight of the blind touched Mary J'o deeply, she might want to try her hand at tran- scribing Braille. Nothing interested her more. Mary Jo's fascination with learning to write for the sight- less was healthy in two ways. Physically, the manual effort of applying the Braille awl to the fiberboard strengthened her thin arms and fingers once paralyzed by polio. And spiri- tually, this .labor of love for those even more terribly af- flicted than she, expressed her gratitude to God at surviving her own ordeal. The first words Mary Jo wrote in Braille, for the blind to read through their finger tips, were those of the unhap- py Job. (The Old Testament patriarch was reminding the Lord of his own succor to those whose eyes had failed.) Mary Jo, who is 14 and has spent half of those years in hospitals, now is home with her overjoyed parents, Mr. and Mrs. George Phillips of Whit- man, Mass. In her wheel chair, the child continues her plucky fight today against the ravages of bulbar polio. With $32,000 in March of Dimes contributions, The Na- tional Foundation has broug]ll Mary Jo along to the l,oi,l where she can type slcwlv write, paint water colors, dress herself "with just a little help," and even walk a few steps sup- ported,by her crutches. But above all, the little girl is devoted to her labors with Braille. When she completes the "bible" that is never far from her, "Standard EngliSh i!iiii!iiii!iiiiiiiiii!iiii Using special awl for writing in Braille, Mary Jo Phillip6 ranches out text on fiberboard. ::: ::::: ::::::: ::::: :: ::: :: :: :::::::.:. :.>:. :.:-:+ ::: <: :: ::: %: :: ::: :: : :::::::::: ::::: ::. :-:. :. :. :. :-:::::: ::: ::::::: ::::: ::::: ::::: :::: :::::. :-:. :.: :.:-:.:. :.: :: :: :::: ::::::: :::::::::::::: :::::::::: :2: :-:. :-.. :.: .:. :-:. :. :. :-:. :. :. :. :. ::: :::::::: ::::::::::::: :. :. :. :. :.::: :.:.: >: !ii:iiiiiiiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiii}ii!iii!iii!!iiiiiiiiiiilliiiii!iiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiiii!i!iiiii!iiiiiiiiii!iii!iii!i!iiiii!i!iiiiiiiii!!iiiiiiiiii!iiii::::ii::iiiiii]iiiii!iiii!iii!iii! :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ;][iiii:!::::<$:::::.:.:+:::.:,:....,......... ........ .....:.:.:4::::.:.:[::::::i:i:i:i:iiii iliii i i, i {  :::;::::::!:::i: : :  iii::::::::i: ::::: ::. :i: :::: ::.:., .... ::!:!::::: :: .:::S: i: i?::::!::::$:;:::: :?.:  :: :: ::i ::::::::::::::::::::::::: :i::: ::: :: :: Mary Jo's first line of Braille, written for the blind during her seven-year hospital stay, fighting polio.

Indeed, Richard H.

Other conservation leaders, state and Federal authorities, and just plain license buyers from all over seem pretty noarly unanimous in their praise for the law and What has been done under its auspices. Yet the Dingell-Johnson law had a hard time getting born at all, states William Voig Jr., featur writer for Sports Mield Magazine.
