REHABILITATION OF HANDICAPPED CHILDREN
Mr. A. E. Meyzeek, member of the State Board of Education,
calls attention to the fact that many handicapped children are not
taking advantage of the willingness of the State to rehabilitate them.
There is set aside by the State each year $75,000 to rehabilitate
children who are blind, deaf, crippled, or in need of artificial limbs.
The United States Government appropriates two dollars for
every dollar appropriated by the State, thus making available a
reasonable amount of money for the purpose. Mr. Meyzeek asks
that the names of handicapped children who should be aided fromn
this fund be sent him at 1701 West Chestnut Street, Louisville 3,
