Dift»ii i k ' _L fiwi-TOetr^mWtdnwday, Jan. M, ws MO L-\ long Bead) Indtpentent, Tluirvdny, J»n. ?», 19)5 SCIENCE TODAY This bank aids secure future By LIDIA LESZCZYNSKI ' " S A L T LAKE CITY (UPD - If you want a secure future, invest your blood in a bank. Under a new program just going into effect in this area, anyone who don a t e s blood will h a v e most of their future blood ..needs available without c h a r g e throughout the c o u n t r y whenever the necessity arises. The I n t e r m o u n t a i n .Health Care Corp. and the American Red Cross -which provides about 80 per cent of the blood supply to Utah, Idaho, and parts of Colorado, New ; Mexico and Wyoming -signed a reciprocal agreement to this effect last ; summer. · Prior to the program, a .volunteer was eligible for these services o n l y ;through the industry, gov- 'ernment, church, school, fraternal or civic group to which he donated. Only Red Cross donors were assured of receiving free blood anywhere in the country. THE NEW pilot project allows any church, em- ploye or civic group to offer such nonrestrictive protection to volunteers who give blood. In fact, the program offers the services to 40 persons for each donor for a year following the giving of blood. The 40 group members rotate so that a different volunteer gives blood each time to insure the blood services for the rest of the group. "The most important provision of the new agreement provides for a t r a n s f e r of previously donated blood credits or blood, regardless of where the a d v a n c e d donation was made, thereby obviating the need to make additional donations to replace the used blood," said Dr. Harold B. An- stall, medical director of the Intermountain Red Cross Blood Center. The primary purpose of the program, however, was to p r o v i d e e x t r a incentive for blood donations. It was feared that by the end of the year even f e w e r t h a n t h e present 3 per cent of the American population will be donating "the gift of life." ANSTALL p r e d i c t e d t h a t a measure w h i c h w o u l d prohibit p a y i n g blood dbnors -- proposed by the n e w l y created American Blood Commission under the auspices of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare -would go into effect by December, 1975. "Nationwide, 3 per cent of the people are providing 100 per cent of the blood for all who need it," said Anstall. "If the paid donor were eliminated overnight, only 2Vz per cent would be left, and some meaningful recruitment would be necessary." As it stands, the Red Cross, w h i c h provides about two-thirds of the nation's blood supply, is "running close to the line" as population and d e m a n d s for blood increase. "In the future blood requirements are expected to swell, due to more complex hospital surgery being performed, severe freeway automobile accidents and the population growth stimulating greater general health needs," Anstall said. He looks at the pilot program as only a beginning and hopes it will be s u c c e s s f u l enough to 1 spread to hospitals and blood banks throughout the nation. JOHN C.

Less fat in all fowls CHICAGO iff! - Bo Ock L u m . a University of C h i c a g o clinical nutritionist, suggests that Americans eat turkey or chicken all year long, not just at holidays. Turkey has less fat than steak -- if you peel off the turkey skin -- and it's cheaper, says Mrs. Lum, who is associated with the g r a d u a t e p r o g r a m i n clinical nutrition of the u n i v e r s i t y ' s P r i l z k e r School of Medicine. So-called "top" grades of steak are heavily larded with fat. That's what makes t h e m so tender, says Mrs. Lum. Chicken -- also without the skin -- is a good steak substitute, too. A m o n g steaks, porterhouse and T-bone are the most loaded with fat. If you a r e a d d i c t e d t o steaks, she suggests flank sleak -- but be sure to remove the fat on the edge of it. « Mrs. Lum said her suggestions are mainly for people who desire to control their weight or whom physicians have advised to modify their fat intake. Hudson Bay drying up? Hudson Bay may be drying up. About 6,000 to 7,000 years ago it was an i m m e n s e i n l a n d sea covering the provinces of O n t a r i o , Quebec and Manitoba. Ice, believed a mile thick, began to melt, the weight pushed down or warped the earth beneath and the runoff water col- l e c t e d in a depressed basin called the Tyrell Sea During the centuries the sea drained off to its present Hudson Bay size.
