1, at the Hertford Methodist Church,

reported today by Talmage Rose,
chairman of the Jaycee committee

It was requested that this visit of
the bloodmobile be postponed until a
later date, but due to prior commit
ments it was impossible to plan the
visit for other than June 1.
The last visit of the bloodmobile to
this county was r.o as successful as it
might have been from the viewpoint
of. the amount of blood collected but
from the- percrtage of abhors rela
tive to total population, this county
led some others. .
Mr. Rose pointed out the blood
quota for this year is" again 150 pints.
He said this is not large quota but
one which has never been met, and
the committee is hopeful the county
goal will be achieved this year.
Urging the public to cooperate in
this program, which benefits the gen
eral public, the chairman said, "The
method of giving is painless. Only a
few minutes are needed to participate
in this life-giving project."
Tests are given at the unit head
quarters at the church to determine if
a donor is physically ame to give
blood and if his blood is of such qual
ity as can be used.
Refreshments are served those do
nating blood, and if a prospective
donor desires transportation to and
from the bloodmobile unit he is re
quested to phone 5601 or 2321.
