As most American have never given any blood at all, the record of Mr. Alfred Ross of New York, 135 pints-nearly 17 gallons-is remarkable. The white-haired musician has passed his 66th birthday, the cutoff for blood donation of both the American Association of Blood Banks and the American Red Cores. He can give no more, but he hopes that more younger men and women will continue to do so. "Anybody who knows the need for blood will give it," says Ross, who plays the drums with the touring "Disney on Parade" show. "In every city", he adds, "there are children, sometimes whole hospital wards of them, whose lives depend upon regular blood transfusions. They have Cooley's anemia, leukemia, hemophilia and other afflictions." -, If four million people between 18 and 66 and in good health, give Just two pints year, all foreseeable blood needs can be homjef.Ji;.r,',7-f HUNTER : :;t left -cd 4 clocks E imn INDJiTRY - tXCtlllHX SITES AVAILABLE area has In its hometown hero.
