Community Chest Seeks Aid For Accident Victim  Tiie situation o f Robert Stans-bury, crippled and paralyzed in a swimming accident some nine years ago, has been brought to the attention of the Nederland Independent Community Chest. Tlw Community Chest has aided the family by payment of medical expenses and utilities for some time now.  However, at the present time repairs are needed for the roof of the house in which he and his wife live and Community Chest funds are not designed to cover such expenditures but "to sustain life. " - The family gets a small monthly check from Texas Welfare but not enough to cover any extra major expense. The wife does ironing for the public in order to bolster the family income but Mr. Stansbury requires almost constant attention. His parents have practically exhausted their resources over the years of their son's misfortunes. They live at 403 Fourth Street and the son and his wife live next door.  Those who would help financially or with roofing materials for the house may contact Fire Chief Johnny Cormier or any of the Fire Department crew who have volunteered to take over collections for the project.
