Blood Dgive Nears End;
Red Cross Asks Support
With just one more day-from
1 to 5 p.m. tomorrow in the Union
-left in which to make an ap-
pointment for a blood donation to
the Red Cross .Blood Bank, stu -
dent turnout remained disap-
pointingly low.
After a campaign of nearly a
week the total-which includes
both faculty and students-comes
to only 160 donors. Officials found
this difficult to explain in view
of the fact that over 1,000 male
students indicated in the recent
defense survey that they would
be willing to give some of their
blood to help America win this
Students under 21 years of age
are urged to immediately write
their parents for permission to
donate blood, for although such
permission will not be received
soon enough for the present drive,
another drive will be held next

University Students To Form Own Air Unit

Forming their own "Wolverine
Squadron"-among the first of its
kind in the whole Army Corps-a
group of University of Michigan Fly-
ing Cadets will leave for Kelly Field,
Tex., at the end of the month, Harold
"Tippy" Lockard, '43, Wolverine grid
star said yesterday.
Led by Sam Marshall, '43, the
group will attempt to extend the tra-
traditions of the University into the
air arm of the Army.
The idea of forming a "Wolverine
Squadron" originated when Capt.
Estes, Air Corps recruiting officer in
this district, noticed great numbers
of University students enlisting in
the air force and suggested that some
of them band together.
Marshall, who heads the proposed

squadron, has completed arrange-
nents with Captain Estes to have all
those interested in becoming Air Ca-
dets placed in the Wolverine Squad-
ron. "All a student has to do," Mar-
shall said, "is to write to Captain
Estes and ask him to be placed in
this special unit.
"Even though some of the men
have already enlisted they will be
able to join us by presenting their
preference to enlistment headquar-
ters in the Federal Building, Detroit."
Due to the fact that the group
plans to leave at the end of the
month, it is imperative that those
Who wish to join the "Wolverine
Squadron" do so immediately as en-

listment will be closed after that
Harmon enlisted several months
ago, and has been waiting his call to
service. The other members have
just recently taken their entrance
exams for the air force, but will still
be able to leave together because of
the efforts of Captain Estes.
ThesUniversity of Texas and the
University of Notre Dame are now
forming squadrons of their own and
will be in Texas before the month is
