Campus Chairmen Cry
For Blood in New Drive

Local Triple Decker Carport Earns Wide Acclaim

. :k :it

* *

All we want is your blood.
So cry the campus chairmen as
they prepare to launch the biggest
blood letting session this Univer-
sity has ever known.
* * *
WYM PRICE, who heads the
drive this year, points out that a
special pact with the University
Hospital will allow almcst all
campus students to fill the Hos-
pital blood bank and earn money
for the World Student Service
fund at the same time.
"All you do is step up to the{
hospital and tell them you wish
to give your blood to the WSSF.
It's as simple as that," he says.
WSSF is a world student or-
ganization designed to provide
funds for European students who
need food and books in order to
live and study. With its central
headquarters in Geneva, WSSF
groups are found on almost all
campuses in the United States.
hopes to duplicate the record of
the University of 'Nevada where
2,000 students donated their blood
money to the fund last year.
Interested students may go to
the University Hospital where
doctors will type their blood and
place them on donors' lists.
Though anyone who is physical-
ly able to give may do so, men
are taken in preference to wom-
en, hospital authorities say.
The standard rate of $15 a pint
will be turned over to the WSSF.
Of groups contacted so far,
about 35 students have indicated
that they will donate their blood,
Price said. The committee con-
tacted church groups Sunday and
later hopes to reach all campus
PRICE LISTED several remind-
ers for would-be donators:

Do not eat for four hours be-
fore donating blood.
Those suffering from bad hay
fever or allergies may not give
Those who have had a malaria
relapse within the last seven years
may not give.
The program is part of a plan
to educate the campus in the
meaning and purpose of WSSF,
Price said.
"There will not be a formal
bucket campaign this year unless
we can't raise the money in any
other way. Instead we plan to'
contact groups personally through-
out the year." he said.
U Gets Prize
For Good Will
An award for its work in the
French language and literature
has been given the University by
the Association of Franco-Ameri-
can Qood Will, which has head-
quarters in Paris.
Founded to commemorate the
asdlstange given to France by
Americans in two world wars, the
Association each year grants a
series of ten prizes to educational
inrstitutions which are developing
the common culture of the United
States and France
A letter received by President
Alexander G. Ruthven announced
that this year the University will
be awarded a prize consisting of
books on France and its colonial
areas and concerning some lead-
ers of French thought.
In 1937, Prof. Fernand Balden-
sperger, president of the Associa-
tion, received an honorary doc-
tor's degree from the University in
recognition of his work on com-
parative philology.

A unique experiment in the field
of civic improvement, Ann Arbor's
modern three-decker "carport" at
First and Washington Sts. has
proven its worth in the first four
months of operation.
This infant project, first such
municipally-owned structure in
the nation, has attracted consid-
erable attention both locally and
nationally for several reasons.
ANN ARBORITES point with
pride at the "carport's" low-slung
construction and roomy interior,
designed to meet strict parking
And citizens from as far as Cali-
fornia have written in to compli-
ment local officials on their non-
profit scheme-a system calling
for every cent collected to be used
in aiding the general Ann Arbor
parking setup.
