venture have a vivid memory of the dramatic news dispatch that came out of Denver last Sept 24 President Eisenhower suffered a heart attack The news came as a shock not only to Americans but to the entire world I first learned oE it on my car radio as I was starting home from a Big Ten football game The heart attack suffered by President Eisenhower had a tre mendous impact on the nations economy and politics Stock prices plunged Political speculation took a new turn A new light was cast on our strained relations with the Communist world In short the damage done to one human heart was an event of far reaching importance We just hadnt realized how great a role in the daily lives of the people of bur world one individual could play Now we know SigniEicant as the development was thus viewed it

emphasis on research The Salk vaccine grew out of that research Many are predicting that we are now on the way to bringing polio under full control in the same way that smallpox and diphtheria to mention two major killers of earlier times have been all but wiped out of existence Its easily within the range oE possibilities that this story is now on the way to being repealed in the case of heart disease At the outset however it should be re membered that the expression na tural death always has meant the wearing out of the heart That fact isnt about to be changed one must concede hes realistic about it In the remainder of this visit with you Id like to call up some of the marvelous benefits which have come to us by reason of the dedicated research that goes on in our medical
