1000 Men Pledge To Donate Blood


One thousand students broke all previous records yesterday when they volunteered to give their blood to the Red Cross. The rise this spring is a 15 percent jump over last year's total of 780 donors.

The turnout was largest in the Yard, where one out of three men volunteered blood. Eliot House, last fall's low man, led the Houses with 118 men signed up. Dudley, Apley, and Claverly Halls, who turned up equally poor results six months ago, signed up 60 men this year.
