Red Cross Blood Donating
To Be Friday and Saturday

WAAC's 'Warm Up' for Softball Season at Fort Custer

The next opportunity to donate
blood to the Red Cross Blood Donor
Service will be friday and Saturday,
when the Mobile Unit from Detroit
will be at the Women's Athletic
Building, according to Dr. Margaret
Women who are interested in con-
tributing should go to the Women's
Blood Bank in the League and reg-
ister for an appointment. Those be-
tween the ages of 18 and 20 must
-present a statement of parent's con-
sent. A student with any complaint
is advised to report to the Health
Service and get herself in good phys-
ieal condition before signing up at
the Blood Bank.
Dr. Bell stressed the fact that each
time the Mobile Unit comes from
Detroit it should leave Ann Arbor
with 175 pints of blood. To get this
175 pints of blood requires about 200
-appointments. If there are many
rejections, just that must plasma has
been lost to the fighting men, so
every effort should be made to meet
the Red Cross requirements.
Many Groups Established
'During the last year, the Univer-
sity Health Service has attempted
to inform the campus in general of
the requirements for blood donation.
By so doing it aspired to set up a
large group of University women as
periodic blood donors to give blood
about every four months. A rela-
tively large group of blood donors
has already been established and
more are being added regularly.
"However,bthis plan of education
is now to be extended by placingI
responsibility on the individual," Dr.
Bell stated, "as each girl should
know by this time how to handle
herself as a blood donor." The orig-
inal group of women was reviewed
by medical advisers and an effort
was made to put the women in good
physical condition.
The medical advisers reviewed the

perfection of her blood and condi-

entertainment is over, while square
dancing will reign from 9:30 p.m. on,
with Howard Liebee calling the steps

a popular addition at the last Rec-
Rally, wil again occupy a prominent
spot in the proceedings as all sorts
of parlor games will be offered, prizes
to be awarded to the winners.
Phebe Scott, '44Ed, and Ann Her-
zog, '43, co-chairmen of Rec-Rally,
