Children and personalities have come together for the annual January fundraiser, called the "March of Dimes," for the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis. Mayor Fletcher Bowron (second from left) joins numerous personalities, including California Governor Earl Warren (center), on stage. Entertainer Eddie Cantor (not fully visible, standing behind Gov. Warren) is recognized as the person who coined the term "March of Dimes," for the event. In 1979, the organization, which was formed in 1938, changed its name to the March of Dimes.
