Reports From the Capital 'Blood Bank' Saves First Life of Naval Action -By JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON—The capital reports: That the Army-Navy "blood bank" has saved its first life of a man wounded under fire. la this case it was a naval officer. When the U.S.S. Kearney was torpedoed off Iceland, one of the seriously "wounded was a young officer. Doctors on the rescue ship radioed Iceland that only injections of blood plasma could save his life. Out from our Iceland base went a fast plane and circling over the ship, dropped the needed plasma in a parachute. The naval officer is alive today. The story leaked out, without names, only because the Red Cross is trying desperately to convince that its blood bank drive is a vital necessity in national defense. The Red Cross so far has had some 20,000 donations of blood. About 15,000 of these donations have been turned over to the Army and Navy, the rest held for home defense and domestic emergencies. Just how much of a drop in the blood bank bucket that is may be rapidly calculated. The Army and Navy together say they need a reserve of at least 200.000 donations. That October (it takes about this long to get the national figures collected) was the first month when "little business" unemployment and a slackening in cantonment and defense plant housing construction began to gam on national defese hiring. With the government's characteristic effort t6 put its best foot forward, Paul V. McNutt's Federal Security Agency said that "unemployment benefit payments dropped to a new low in' October for the third successive month." 'But, claims for benefits jumped 28 per. cent over September; state employment service -^pij/bcements' were .slightly less, insteadHof showing,,the usual seasonal increase; and applications fbr jobs jumped 7 per cent to approximately 1,300,000. ' In all of the states which reported one or more adverse conditions—Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, New Jersey, California, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire were particularly mentioned— the causes were one or more of three; seasonal layoffs; priorities resulting in a shortage of materials; and completion of big defense construction jobsl The report, although far from entirely pessimistic, was the first hint developing unemployment conditions which some government officials have been predcting for nearly a year. That December is a high water mark for the Maritime Commission, It's the first month that the United States ship building program has reached that "ship-a-day" goal set ten months ago. .... ~ v> " This doesn't include naval vessels. The scheduled launchings ars 25 "Liberty ships," four general car.go vessels and one tanker. The new goal is two ships a day bymext summer. That if it hadn't been for Rep. Sol Bloom, of New Yorlf ,who took up three^ columns of small type in the Congressional Directory drawing attention^ to it, Washington'might never have noticed that December 1 was the 23rd anniversary of the founding o|,- Yugoslavia and the establishment o 'fthe Union of the Yugoslavs as a federation of free peoples. • That the United States Army, on maneuvers in the Carolinas, practiced fifth colunjning that out-Nazied the Nazis. .'An' infantry private planted himself in an armored column of 22 vehicles. When they came to a certain road, the private jumped down, yelled to the lead driver: "Here's where we-turn off and eat." The armored column turned off. The fifth columnist's infantry buddies rose from the roadside ditches and fields and captured them all. . DRS, CHAS. A. & ETTA E.
