Voluntary Donors

Assist Red Cross

Last year the Southeastern Mich-
igan Blood Program collected
nearly 80,000 units of blood from
voluntary donors throughout
Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Wash-
tenaw and St. Clair counties, ac-
cording to J. Ralph Jenkins, Blood
Program administrator.
Through its voluntary donor plan
the Red Cross supplies approxi-
mately 50 per cent of the blood used
in Southeastern Michigan area
hospitals, he said. The balance
comes largely from paid or profes-
sional donors.
Blood collected through Red
Cross mobiles and its two perma-
nent collection facilities here, is
processed at the Red Cross Blood
Center in Detroit and distributed
to over 90 hospitals in the five
county region, Jenkins continued.
Depending on patient needs, hos-
pitals may request whole blood or
blood components, Jenkins said.
Last year, approximately 20 per
cent of the blood collected was di-
verted to components for hospital
distribution.
Blood Is broken down into com-
ponents, packed red cells and
'plasma, through the process of
centrifugation, a high speed spin-
ning process, Jenkins stated.
Packed red cells provide the
same oxygen transport function as
whole blood, with one-half the
volume. ,Red cells are used in the
treatment of severe anemia and in
other conditions requiring restora-
tion of hemoglobin activity.

AND HIS ORCHESTRA

vising us that a growing number
of new communities, border vil-
lages, kibutzim, army outposts,
schools and institutions have sub-
mitted a request to the ministry
for Torah scrolls. (The supply of
scrolls which were brought from
Romania has now been exhausted.)
The consulate general of Israel
in New York and all Israel con-
sulates throughout the United
States are prepared to receive
scrolls which communities or in-
dividuals might wish to donate
for shipment to the ministry for
religious affairs in Jerusalem.
The minister is hopeful that to
the extent that there are congre-
gations which are on the verge of
closing down, they will consider
transferring as many scrolls as
they can spare to Israel.
He also recommends the initia-
tion of a special project whereby
synagogues in the United States
establish a direct link with com-
munities in Israel by donating to
them one or more of their scrolls.
A special emissary from the min-
ister for religious affairs. Rabbi
Joseph Ralbag, has been dispatch-
ed to this country explicitly for this
purporie and he will be prepared to
meet with interested parties to
discuss this project in more detail.
Yours sincerely,
ZVI CASPI
