Michigan may be heavily favored
over Ohio State when the two foot-
ball teams meet Nov. 25, but right
now, Michigan is losing to OSU in
the annual battle to raise blood for
the Red Cross.
According to the latest statistics
-reported by Neal Fry, the regional
Red Cross representative - Ohio
State has collected 32 percent of its
initial goal, while Michigan trails
with 30 percent.
Although Michigan is lagging
behind OSU at the midway point of
the two-week drive, Fry believes that
a strong final week can put Michi-
gan in the lead. She said this past
week has been a strong one for Ohio
State, which has collected blood
from the four or five schools which
have traditionally been its best
resources, notably including the
school of pharmacy.
In Ann Arbor, donations at the
Business School, Bursley, Mosher-
Jordan, and East Quad have either
met or exceeded Red Cross anticipa-
tion. During the final week of col-
lection, a station will be set up in
the Michigan Union - traditionally
one of the strongest producers in the
The University of Michigan is
the largest blood collection site in
southeast Michigan. Blood from the
University is used to meet the 1,200
pint-per-day demand placed on the
area by over 70 hospitals, six of
r which are in Washtenaw County.
Anyone weighing more than 110
ppunds and between the ages of 17
and 66 with reasonably good health
is an acceptable donor. The donation
process takes about an hour, and the
blood taken is regenerated within 48

Police seek leads
in swastika case
by Mike Sobel
Daily Staff Writer
Ann Arbor police are still search-
ing for leads in a recent incident of
anti-semitic vandalism on campus.
Members of Sigma Alpha Mu, a
predominantly Jewish fraternity,
awoke last Friday to discover the fra-
ternity house's walkway and two of
their members' cars defaced with red
Sgt. John Bodenschatz, of the
Ann Arbor Police Department, said
"I'm sure it was an ethnic type
thing," but added he has yet to find
"Nothing has turned into any-
thing," but "one small lead can take
you to the right place," Bodenschatz
Detective Neil Ehnis, in charge
of the investigation, said he has had
no luck with the case. "A person
does it once, he doesn't tell anyone,
he doesn't get caught," he said, "I've
got nothing to go on until some-
Bodenschatz said because they
have no eyewitness reports, the po-
lice will be looking back through
their files to gain leads from similar
events in the past.
This process will take at least ten
days, Bodenschatz said.
At the time of the incident, one
of the students whose car was defaced
reported that the officers with whom
he initially filed the report were apa-
thetic and offensive to him. Ehnis
refused to give the name of the pa-
trol officers involved, saying it was
irrelevant to the case. This was the
second time the Ann Arbor Police
Department refused to release this in-
formation to the Daily.

Ann Arbor's Beth Israel Congrega-

slogans were spray-painted onto the
school side entrance of the syna-

"The kids were faced with it in
the morning," she said, "They were
Susan Coran, former president of
the congregation, recalls an event in
which a fire bomb was left smolder-
ing outside of the building.
Both Coran and Oleinick said that
while no suspects were found nor ar-
rests made, they remember the police
attributing the incidents to non-local
neo-nazigroups. Detective Ehnis
said he had no knowledge of the
cases but would be surprised if the
police would mention a group with-
out having individual suspects.
