" OAKLAND WOMEN GIVE VITAL i rrr LUULLJJMILLrJSlt A major in the success of. the Red Cross Blood Procurement Service, it is pointed out, is the vol unteer participation of women of the? community both as blood don ors ahd'as personnel to keep the center in operation throughout its extensive schedule. Come Summer heat or Winter chill fair weather or foul the program of blood procurement must go on in order "that the boys at the front may not die for lack of life-saving plasma," declared Mrs.A. Edward Dart, director of the Oakland Red Cross Blood Donor Center, in directing a plea for more and more women donors. "We not only ask that women make appointments to 'send their blood to -war' now, but we empha size the necessity of keeping those appointments, if at all possible, since a appdjntment missed is a pint of blood Ibst." WOMEN IN LEAD . That Oakland women are playing an important role in the program is shown by records kept at the ceh-ter. Out of 1500 donors, the average ratio to date is 800 women to 700 men. Much of this is due to tne efforts of various women's organi zations to provide group donors. As an example, the P.-T.A. organization recruits 20 donors for. appointments each Friday. Daytime warden groups also haVe done an outstanding job of recruitment. The D.A.R. not only has recruited donors from its ranks, but also has contributed funds for the provision of equip ment at the center. All personnel on the staff at the center is made up of wornn with the exception ofthe doctor in charge and the shipping clerk. Mrs. Dart is one of five women blood donor cen ter directors in the 33 centers throughout the country. . yolunteer Special Services which have representatives at the center are Motor CorpsXJray Ladies, Canteen, Staff Assistants and Nurse's Aides. These women give many hburs of 'volunteer service every week. OUTSTANDING SERVICE An outstanding example of volunteer service at the center is that of Mrs. Neal Harris, Nurse's Aide. She started her training in March, 1942, and since completing the course, has given well over 1500 hours of service a record that has few rivals on the Pacific Coast. She wears with distinction three white stripes on her uniform, first for 150 hours, second for 500 hours. I third for 1000 hours.

Barbera, 21 U.S.A. Field Artillery, Camp Rob erts, and George H. Barbera, 18, attending Officers' Candidates School, Marine Corps. Another son, Clifford, 17, is studying to become an aerial photographer and, to quote him, he also wants to get "his fingers in the pie.

The after noon hours between 2 and 4 o'clock are the most difficult to fill, accord ing to the records, and women who have these hours open are especially urged to make appointments. Town Would Swap Police Force for Rood Improvement' LAFAYETTE, N.J., June 3. (tfV- This hamlets in the heart of the snug Papakatmg Valley may trade a one-man police department for some road improvement. One hundred and thirteen of the township's 800 residents have urged in a petition the dismissal oi Police Chief Silas Kimble and application of his $750-a-year salary to the repair of roads. Say the petitioners: Gasoline rationing has swept from the town's roads virtually all of the small amount of traffic they normally accommodated. There is "very little crime" in the Sussex County municipality. ' And not only that, the petition stated, the chief wakes the dogs when he makes his nightly rounds with a spotlight, and the dogs wake the cilizenry. And besides, the petition contends, it's a waste of gasoline. The township fathers will consider the' petition next Wednesday. ... , mill 4 4Vf. ft rOR" STETSOtl - Dr. Townsend peaK-nere Dr. Francis E.
