The blood program Is for the benefit of everyone and its contin- ued success depends on everyone's support. Anyone between the ages of 18 and 59, white or colored, male or female, is eligible to give blood. No serrate of the American Red Cross depends so much on the sup- port of the public at large as the blood program. Public opinion sur- veys reveal it is the most widely known of all the Red Cross ser- vices. The drama of the blood program in which an indivtduaF gives freely of hinmelf to another through the medium of the Red Cross touches the very basis of life itself.

Finkbine by Misses Emilie and Marie Stapp and Mrs. Dorothy Jours in December 1932. The devotional, given by Mts Ona Mac Willlngham was the club collect which was beautifully pre- sented. After the luncheon the roll call of the presidents was held begin- with Mrs. J. M. Lane, who presided 1935-37. It was interesting to note that of the 25 presidents, ,15 are still active club members. The past presidents who answered the roll call recalled events of in- terest which occured during thcdr admimstratlon of office. Eleven past presidents responded and each presented a most informative re- view of club history. Those present were: Mrs. J. M. Lane, Mrs. M. E, Cooper, Mrs. S. P. Wilson, Mrs. W. E. Martin, Mrs. George Baringer, Mrs. R. L. , Mrs. R P. Re- tan Mrs. C-eorge McH'Y, Mrs. J. R. Davis, Mrs. H. C. Hall, Mrs. W. J. Blass and Miss Ona Mac Will- ingham.

The blood program Is for the benefit of everyone and its contin- ued success depends on everyone's support. Anyone between the ages of 18 and 59, white or colored, male or female, is eligible to give blood. No serrate of the American Red Cross depends so much on the sup- port of the public at large as the blood program. Public opinion sur- veys reveal it is the most widely known of all the Red Cross ser- vices. The drama of the blood program in which an indivtduaF gives freely of hinmelf to another through the medium of the Red Cross touches the very basis of life itself. So make a date to give blood Oct. 24. A pint is only half a qurt--So Please Give. Thanks Charles Pratt, Chairman OF.
