lofthe flu, it's even worse" said Pamela
ReadingSmith, director of public sup
port for the Washtenaw C ouny chapter
of American Red Cross.
A asociate Medical Director of the
Blood Bank and Transportation
Service for the University Hospitals
Robertson Davenport said they have
been "fortunate" when it comes to
blood donations because, "the Red
Cross has been able to meet our needs,"
he said.
But if the flu problem persists, the
situation could grow into greater prob-
lems for the hospitals, Davenport said.
hough University Health Services
continue to treat patients with th flu,
VHS officials said the prevalent epi-
demic has not caused a panic for blood
donations at the facility.
"This does not affect us," said
Robert Winfield, interim director at

University Heath Service

UHS. mainly because the center does
not process or deal with blood dona-
tions verry much, he added.
The usual availibility of blood types
within the American Red Cross
includes a three-day 0-negative and B-
negative supply. Currently, due to the
flu and the decrease in donor turnout,
the Red Cross has found itself with
one-day supplies of Type-O blood.
Although there is no need for a mass
panic, Mangus said, "people with Type-
0 blood should come in and give as
much as they can because that is the
universal blood type."
If numbers of donors continue to
decrease, the Red Cross will "not have
trouble importing some blood from
other regions," Mangus said, provided

OK to post on the Web, but posting
the opinion of the professor seems to
be illegal," LSA sophomore Alisa
Miller said.
Director of Campus Relations for
Versity.com Janet Cardinell said
"our overall objective is to be the
premiere academic Website for col-
lege students. We are here to rein-
force the material, help students
review for tests and help the faculty
to see almost instantly if the students
are grasping the material without
having to wait until exams and tests."
Versity.com is working with the
faculty by allowing them to see the
notes before or after they are posted
and make changes, which the student

notetaker is then responsible for cor-
recting.
University professors in 26 classes
have approved student notetakers for
Versity.com.
Students like the idea of free notes
but question the quality of the prod-

uct.
"I think it is a great idea, but the
quality of notes are so bad that there
is no use going through the trouble
of filling out surveys and such just to
get the notes off the Web," LSA
sophomore Ron Keoleian said.
"You can't rely on them, I mean
maybe if I slept in for a Friday ,8
o'clock or something," LSA sopho-
more Emily Flajole said.
But Cardinell said "student note-
takers must apply and go through
training."
