“Those kids need a few good

“We’ll have to be a little rough
but we won’t hurt them-much.”
But the high school thinks dif
ferently. “Those old fellows are
taking quite a chance.” a high
school spokesman predicted.
“We’ve had an irritating season
and the boys are likely to take
it out on them.”
But an impartial observer con
cludes the feud is a fake to
drum up attendance for the bat
tle which will be under
lights at the Booster field.
Principal reason for the
conclusion is that all proceeds
will’ go to the high school ath

Alumni members who are ex

“The Defense Department has
set a goal of 2.8 million pints
of blood by next summer-300,
000 pints monthly. The need is
so urgent even military per
sonnel are being asked to give
—the first time the armed
forces have collected blood here
at home in their history.
“Here is why:
“1. World War II plasma
stockpiles are gone. Americans
gave more than 13 millions
rest has been used up in Korea.
pints of their blood during
the war, and much dried plas
ma was left. But most was re
leased to civilian hospitals. The
rest has been used up in Korea.
“2. More blood than ever is
needed. The armed forces have
suffered more than 70,000
killed and wounded in Korea.
But the rate of deaths among
the wounded has been cut from
4 to 100 in World War II to
2.6 per 100—partly because of
the use of more blood. More
blood is being used in hospi
tals at home, too.
“3. Too few people are giv
ing. Last December, when
things were going badly in
Korea, people at home gave
over 110,000 pints of blood
through the Red Cross to the
Defense Department. But in
July, with armistice talks in
progress, they gave less than
40,000—hardly more than a
tenth of the armed forces’ need.
Need Could Be Sudden
“While that much is not
needed now in Korea, much
more could be needed, and sud
denly. Military leaders are
worried not merely about Kor
ea, but even more about a new
or bigger war. The armed forces
could need every bit of a 2.8
million pint reserve in an atom
war even more.
“The 300,000-a-month goal
for the new plasma reserve
doesn’t even touch the problem
of a stockpile for civil defense..
A much greater reserve—bigger
by at least 7 million pints—
must start building befor long,,
to safeguard civilians.
“The prospect, therefore, is
a blood-donor drive that will
not end next July with 2.5
million pints, but will go in
“The drive already is under
way. Generals Marshall, Brad
ley and Ridgway sounded the
opening call in a broadcast
two weeks ago. Last week,
the new Defense Secretary,
Robert A. Lovett, added his
own plea, calling it bluntly
“a blood crisis”.
Main Collection Agency
“The Red Cross is the main
collecting agency, and it is ex
panding for the job. Fourteen
new derense blood centers will
collect nothing but blood for
the drive, and Red Cross is
adding private blood banks to
its roster of regular centers.
“Red Cross also will continue
to recruit donors at many mili
tary posts.But under the new
Armed Forces Blood Donor
Program, 28 of the biggest
posts will start collecting their
own donations. They’ll have a
capacity of 87,000 donors ev
ery month.
“The biggest worry is the
“When Gen. Marshall kicked
off the drive with a combined
TV and radio plea to citizens
to call at once to make ap
pointments as donors, 3,700 Red
Cross chapters across the Na
tion had their telephones
manned. Some 50 calls came in
—five in New York City, none
Must Continue Quotas
“Red Cross regional centers
like the one here must con
tinue to supply weekly quotas
of whole blood for immediate
shipment to Korea, as well as
much larger amounts supplied
regularly to community hospi
tals. The new plasma drive is
in addition to these needs. Thus
the centers must find brand
new donors.
The bloodmobile unit will be
at the Chardon Methodist
church on Tuesday, Oct. 30
and at the Burton Congrega
tional church on Wednesday,
Oct. 31. Registrations are
needed to organize the job efi
ciently and may be made by
calling the Geauga Red Cross
office at Chardon 5-4911.
