109 Pledges for PBH Preview Blood Drive

Preliminary volunteer work set the 1952 Phillips Brooks House Red Cross blood drive off to a fast start as College freshmen pledged 109 pints in the last two nights.

Previewing the 1952 campaign, which will officially begin Monday, freshman solicitors Dickie Lee Hebert (Miss Radcliffe), Nancy Leet, Sarah Crocker, and Toni Traugott netted 43 pints of blood the first day and 66 pints on the second night during dinner meals at the Freshman Union.

Trying to break last fall's record of 2,106 pints, PBH will solicit donations from the University, Radcliffe, Sargent, Lesley, Longy School of Music, and the Episcopal Theological School.
