FHE SPASTICS SOCIETY Sus,--At this time of the year, when

the happiness and welfare of our families is high in our thoughts, we would ask your readers to remember that larger family--the 75,000 spastics, men, women ' and :hildren, throughout the country who are in need of help and care.

The Spastics Society needs £8 million for its scheduled programme for the next ten years. We hope, therefore, that when your readers are giving at Christmas they will remember that a spastic child is born every eight hours of every day.
