PBH Blood Quota Met, Insuring Free Blood For Cambridge Area

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Concluding its two-day drive last night with 17 pints of blood donated, the Phillips Brooks House Committee went over its quota, thus insuring to members of the Harvard and Radcliffe communities free blood of any type at any time.

Dr. S. R. Trainer, of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, declared yesterday that the College should be congratulated on its response to the blood drive. He explained that under the Public Health policy any community which meets its quota of one pint for 150 persons will be allowed free blood at the Massachusetts Blood Bank upon request.

Nine Red Cross workers assisted the Department of Public Health Personnel and the Brooks House Blood Committee led by Ray R. Schiff '47, in examining and classifying donors.

Blood donors' sentiments were largely summed up by an entry in the comment book provided for them that enthused, "If I could have the same nurse all afternoon, I'd go to the last drop."
