The American Red Cross Blood- mobile will be at the English Road plants from 10:00 a. m. to 3:30 p.m. Adams-Millis employees have been asked to donate 150 pints of blood during the October 10 visit. This will require nine donors each 15- minute period. Personnel of the High Point plants will be contacted prior to the visit to fill out their registration cards and to designate the hour they want to donate. This scheduling is neces sary to avoid having too many donors at one time. The visit will not be restricted to personnel of the three plants.
