1000 Men Pledge To Donate Blood

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

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.

Credits House Chairmen

Drive Chairman William R. Polk '51 said yesterday, "This year's success is due, in the final analysis, to the fellows who went from door to door."

The House Chairman for the Blood Drive were Bradford S. Doane '50, Frank C. Jones '51, Albert B. Carter, Jr. '50, Thomas B. Roos '51, James C. Blankenship '51, Jack T. Fauls '51, Ira H. Peterman '52, Carl M. Sapers '53, Stephen R. Petshek '53, Joseph M. Einer '53, and Robert K. McNealy '53. Frank H. Wood '51 was Vice-Chairman of the drive.
