Scores of early volunteers already have donated blood at the .Rochester Center. Donations are being continued there daily, and plans are being completed for tne use of a bloodmobile, carrying doctors, nurses and medical equip- commumties. The bloodmobile will ·be used just as mobile units were used in wartime. Arrangements also are being made to speed blood and plasma by air from the Rochester center to the hospitals in the region. Natioal Head Speaker Nationally - known medical, health and hospital officials, medical scientists, and leaders in military, naval, veteran, fraternal, civic, labor, religious and educational ·groups participated in the dedication of the Rochester center. In the 'dedication address, Basil O'Connor, 'president of the American National Red Cross, stressed that the Rochester Regional Blood Center would serve not only to supply blood to all who need it in its own region -but also to inaugurate the ·nation-wide Red Cross program by iwhich similar benefits eventually would be provided for the entire United States. "The need of the people for blood has been our motivating force in establishing this new pro- gram," Mr. O'Connor said. "Only the generosity of the people in donating their blood to the sick and injured will provide the motivating power to drive this program forward with sustained momentum." After discussing need of whole blood, plasma and other blood derivatives in modern medical treatment, Mr. O'Connor went on to say that "blood needed to prevent death, to restore the injured and to expand research can only come from the vein;, of people willing to offer a part of tbem- Favorite of the 400 ... a foaming glass of Utica Club Old English Brand Ale.

B, PATTERSON SON 33 North Maui Street Legion Building Believe People Willing "We have sound reasons for believing they aie willing, based on the great achievement of the wartime Red Cross Blood Donor program. The American people, through the Red Cross, contributed more than 13,000,000 pints of blood and plasma to the Armed Forces of the United States. The people's blood, shipped by air and sea and land to the far of the world, saved thousands who suffered injuiies Only 2.8 per cent of the casualties among Navy personnel in the Pacific Theater resulted in death, and this extraordinary record is attributed in large measurer to the blood that was g i v e n by the Ameiiean people. "Now we are faced w i t h a proposition equally significant for the Ameiiean people. Can that same record of life saving and healing be duplicated for all our people in time of peace? We submit Lhat it ] can.' Dr. Ross T. Mclntire, wartime surgeon general of the Navy and now national administrator of the Red Cross blood program, assisted in the dedication. At the luncheon preceding the ceremony. Dr. George F. Lull, former deputy surgeon general of the Army and now secretary-general manager of the American Medical association, was the principal speaker.

The availability of an adequate supply of b'ood i., equally important in p -a.-f ' T iiu- lor civilian needs . . . T'IC n.L.i Cioss Regional Blood Bank will meet all of thse conditions so that the right tyr* of blood will oe promptly available whenever it is needed in any hospital in the 11 counties known as the Rochester region " Dr. Samuel J. Stebbinb, surgeon- m-chief of Genesee hospital, Roch- ster -- "The need for whole blood in civilian hospitals today is as great as blood plasma was to military hospitals during World War II . . . . The program of the Amencan R.ed Cross, carefully supervised, offers much to civilian hospitals which increasingly greater need for whole blood for the surgical patient." Dr. Clarence P. Thomas, president of the Rochester Academy of Medicine -- "This project will bring transfusion and plasma therapy within the financial reach of every citizen of Rochester. It will make also these life saving measures qpickly available in rural areas surrounding t h i s city."

Colmey, acting upon the motion of District Attorney Thomas C. Croucher, complying with a request made by the The dismissal action resulted from an acquittal verdict made by a city court jury of tlnee men and three women, in cit court, last evening, in the trial of Sebastian Mussolmo, 01, a third bartender, against w h o m t'ne police had made a similar charge The jury required only 20 minutes m arriving at its decision, which followed almost two hours of testimony for the defense and the prosecution in the small city hall courtroom before City Judge Colmey. Separate Trials Those against whom charges were dismissed this afternoon are Nicholas Placito, 33, employed at the Brevett cafe, on Phoenix street, and Edward V. Church, 32, employed in the tap room at the Hotel Pickering. The\ were to have had separate trials this and tomorrow evenings. In giving the reasons for the police department's request for dismissal of the charges against the two, Police Chief John M. Dunn stated this afternon that although three trials tiad- been set, the same witnesses and facts would be used as evidence in each case. Consequently, he said continuation of the case appeared impractical in the* light of the jury's verdict of last night. The arrest of the trio was the aftermath of the apprehension by- city police at an early morning hour, Dec. 7, of four teen-aged youth who were alleged to have been making u disuubance' on Phoenix street. Pleaded Guilty The young quartet pleaded guilty to a charge of disorderly conduct the following Monday, and each was fined $25 by the former citj judge, Mrs. Emma Rae Jones. A 30-day jail sentence for one of the youth's was suspended e n the provision that he pay for several windows they were said by police to have broken during the fracas. Each of the four youths gave evidence in behalf of the prosecution during the trial of Mussolino, last night. Also, one of them was recalled to the stand as a defense witness by James P. Donovan, recently appointed citv attorney, who appealed as defense counsel for the accused bai tender. The people's case was presented by District Attorney Croucher. The mother of the 1 (-year-old boy, to whom, the prosecution charged, the defended had illegally sold a bottle of beer, testified a's to the a.^e of her son. The defense made use of w hat- it claimed were contradictions contained witnin written and signed statements made by the four youths at the time of their arrest and statements made in the course of their testimony, last night, in trying to establish that the testimony they gave against the defended was not of sufficient reliability to warrant a conviction. The jury consisted of LeRoy M. White, Who was the jury foreman, and Kenneth Lord, Mrs. Katherine H. Lapham, George Armitage, Mrs. George B. Gregg, and Mrs. Laura O. Wilkinson. He succeeds the late John Milton Potter who died January 9, 1947. Dr. Brown becomes the 17th piesidem ol Hoouit m Hb 123- year histoiy.

Estimated cost of the project is set at between 350,000 and S60,- 000 and is one of six to be located throughout the state Ontario county's station site is located on Warden Hill, about two miles north of Gannett hill where the elevation is about 2,200 feet. According to present plans the studio will be ready to broadcast sometime in June of this year. The station, in Bristol, along w i t h its five companion units will all be a part of the Rural Radio network and will carry the same programs throughout the day with the exception of two or three hours w hen programs will originate in its own studio. Farm Organizations Organizations sponsoring construction of the six stations which cumpuiti. uie l u u i m d u u n uiciuuc. State grange. Farm bureau, Home bureau. GLF. Horticultural society, Vegetable Growers' association, Poutlry council and the Artificial Breeders' association. The station here will include a transmitting unit and a small studio plus a staff of five including an engineer who will be on duty at all times A weather recording instrument will be a part of the station's equipment and in cooperation with the federal weather bureau will strive to give accurate and full weather reports to listeners. Programs in general will deal with rural problems and activities including market reports but will also include entertainment and some original programs to be broadcast from the studio. 16 Acres in Grounds The station grounds consist of 16 acres. A 100-foot steel t o w e r with a o-l foot antennae will be erected and the studio which for the most part will contain the necessary "mechanical facilities will measure about 24 feet by 36 feet. This type of station differs from the national network stations in that it cannot be heard on" the regular radio receiveis w h i c h are served by amplified modulation stations. This six-station network- will be connected by direct beam ultra high frequencj radio trans- mition. This w i l l eliminate cc-m- pletly the use of telephone wire circuits as are used in the more familiar of national networks. VVneie the distance between t\\o of these stations is so great that radio transmition is impossible intermediate relay stations entirely automatically operated will receive a signal reamplifj it and retransmit it on its way again. News for Farmers During the portions of the day when programming will be done at the individual station a variety of subjects may be covered at the discretion of the local director. News of particular interest from local farm organizations will be included on these piograms along with advertising and local talent contributions.

It was at then that he discovered the safe, smashed open, at its location in a balcony office near center of store area. Entry to the store had been gained through the probable use of a pass key. according to the police, who said that there was no evidence of forced entry anywhere on the premises. They said that the lock on the front door of the establishment was of an old *tyle, and could quite likely have been opened with the common house key obtainable in almost any notions store.
