BOOSTERS CLUB GROWS
The newly-formed Marshall High School Boost
ers Club is growing. Not only is it growing in mem
bership but also in activities.
Only three meetings old, the club has already
shown what such an organization can mean to a com
munity when its members mean business and are will
ing to give their time and efforts.
At the first meeting, 20 interested persons met
and decided to put the Boosters Club "on the road'
A second meeting was held one week later and 22
members attended. It was at this meeting that per
manent officers were elected and a rules and by-laws
committee appointed. The third meeting held Tues
day night was attended by 31 persons who adopted
a Constitution and By-Laws, enjoyed a talk by Harry
Harper, secretary-treasurer of the North Buncombe
Boosters Club, took up new ideas and really got the
ball rolling for future projects.
Although only three meetings old, the club has
already sponsored the painting of six new beachers,
has sponsored an ambulance and stretcher at all
home games (thanks to Bowman Funeral Home),
has sponsored a cot for the next home game in case
of injury, and has sponsored an eight-page Football
Program for the remainder of the season. Local
merchants, both members and non-members of the
club, have cooperated magnificently by purchasing
advertisements m the program.
Host of the credit must go to Mrs.

ONLY 32 PINTS
It was disappointing that only 32 pints of blood
were received here Tuesday when the Red Cross
Bloodmobile was at the French Broad Electric Mem
bership Co-op from 2:45 to 6:45 o'clock. There were
about 10 rejections but even so, it is hard to explain
why only 42 persons were willing to give a pint of
In plain mathematics, such a small number of
donors is inexcusable. For instance, during the past
year Madison County citizens have been supplied
416 pints of blood without costing them a penny for
the blood. If we did not have the Red Cross Blood
Program, this blood would have cost our citizens
$ 10,400. ($25 per pint.)
It is hard to figure out why MORE people don't
give blood. Should we lose our Red Cross, it will then
be too late to scream "Wolf" and be forced to PUR
CHASE blood. Surely the public is aware of the
great need for blood.
It is gratifying that our citizens have done so
well this year in raising dollars and cents, but it
doesn't make sense to have to pay dollars for blood
when we could so easily donate a pint every six
months to guarantee the continuance of the Blood

Q A recent VA letter about
converting a World War II NSLI
term policy to a psamanent plan
used examples for men aged 40
who carried their insurance up to
age 75. Any special reason those
ages were used?
A Probably because the aver
age age of the World War II vet
eran today is 43. The latest mor
tality table says if a man reaches
43, he can expect to live another
H 1 -plus years. That same table
says women outlive men, so most
of us will need insurance up to
age 75. We should be prepared
in advance and know what we can
expect to have to pay for insur
ance over that span of time.
Q In my new job I will be
traveling for months at a time.
Can I have my VA check sent to
A Yes. If you follow two steps.
