NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Red Cross yesterday began collecting blood donations in what is so far "one of the largest peace-time blood drives in the history of Harvard," according to Stanley B. Lyss '58, co-chairman of the P.B.H. blood drive.

A total of 1828 pints has been pledged, nearly twice the number in last spring's drive. Of these, the graduate schools are contributing 452 pints, a 70 percent increase over last year, Radcliffe is giving 99, and freshmen 165. The Faculty is donating one pint.

In the Houses, Kirkland leads the list, having pledged 160 pints. Dunster and Winthrop are the lowest, with only 56 pints each. University employees have pledged about 40 pints.
