Dollars Roll In To 'Olympic Fund Newark is rallying behind its own Ronald Wood, sprint star who has'qualified for participa- tion in the Deaf Olympics at Helsinki next summer. Offers of assistance are com- ing from everywhere, says Mrs. Lucille Kucb, chairman of Kla- tawa Council's committee to aid in transportation costs. Local merchants have given prizes to boost the ticket sales Mrs. Kuch is conducting. Con- nolly's Furniture has given a clock radio. Jean's Beauty Shop offers a permanent, haircut and styling. Mrs. Kuch says offers are coming almost too fast to record. Two Newark-ites, Floyd Bar- low and Orval Lane, themselves handicapped by deafness, traced Mrs. Kuch through her Argus photo last week and offered to sell 250 tickets. v To make it easier for all Newark-ites to help, Mrs. Kuch has opened an account at Cen- tral Valley Bank in the name of Ron Wood Deaf Olympics Fund. Anyone who'd like to con- tribute, can mail a donation to Central Valley, earmarked for the fund, says Joseph Souza, general manager.
