WSSF Week Opens Drive Today for Blood, Funds

DAILY BREAD-Helping students to maintain their health is one
of the important functions of WSSF.' Two Greek students are
shown pausing at one of the WSSF centers in Greece for a
nourishing meal.

'They Still Need You,' Motto
IOf Anal ReliefuCampaign:
Banners and posters spotlighted with the motto "They Still Need
You" will go up around campus today and tomorrow, highlighting
the beginning of World Student Service Fund's concentrated drive
this week.
Begun last semester, the campaign will reach its climax in the
next seven days when approximately 500 members of the campus drive
organization combine with Alpha Phi Omega, national service fra-
ternity, to put the University up near its yearly quota by the end of
the week.
NEW FEATURE in the annual WSSF Wek will be the national
service fraternity monitored "blood booths," placed around campus
Thursday and Friday, where students will be asked to sign up to con-
tribute a pint of blood to the blood bank, with the fees going to the
WSSF drive.
Two hundred solicitors will also canvass organized houses and
dorms during the week asking for pledges of blood.
Procedure for donation is simple and quick, according to drive
chairmen. Students wishing to donate blood can call the blood bank
and make an appointment-with the actual donation taking just a
half hour, and or phone or mail their pledges for blood or money to
the WSSF office, Lane Hall.
WSSF, FOR WHICH about $490,000 was collected last year, is
devoted to aiding students throughout the world. By supplying needy
students wit hessentials of life and study materials, WSSF attempts
to foster its goal of helping develop international good will.
Depending entirely for its income upon individual and group
contributions, WSSF maintains approximately eight different
kinds of drect and indirect aid to students.
Regular projects of WSSF are supplying emergency food and
clothing, and medical aid, including first aid materials, and equipment
for student health and dental clinics in countries in both Europe
and Asia.

PROJECTS RECENTLY instituted by WSSF agencies include
maintenance of rest-centers for students who are physically run down,
aid to refugee and displaced students, and to tubercular and pre-
tubercular students, plus furnishing needed educational supplies and

A tiny hand above the water. Then slowly,
slowly it sinks. But there is time-still time-
if only someone is near, someone who knows
what to do. A twelve-year-old boy, a woman,
an old man-anyone, if only he knows.
And the wonderful thing is that there are
millions who do know what to do and how to
do it. Last year alone, you-through your Red
Cross-made it possible to train more than
a half-million people in water safety. Another
55,000 were trained and qualified as instructors
in water safety and first aid. It is estimated
that 17,000,000 have had training in first aid
and water safety through your Red Cross.
// f Many of these people are able to save human
life-priceless human life. How much is this
ter: / J ability worth? It's hard to say-unless
it is someone you love who has been rescued.
Your contributions to your oed Cross can

may save a life sooner than you think.
