( S t u f f I'liolo) 'Deffafe crime' is club's goal NAMPA -- As y,iu roiicl lliis sentence, a crime- is being committed. According lo Ihe 1973 Kill Uniform Crime Reports, a car is stolen every 3-1 seconds, a hurglary committed every 12 seconds, a woman is rapedevory lOminulcs, and a murder is commiMed every 27 minutes. lliese dislurbing (ads were being spotlighted this week by members of Ihe Nampa Exchange Club. As a mailer of fad, over 50,000 Exchangiics have been spotlighting these fads this week in cities and towns across America. That's because it is the National Kxcliange Club's 28lh National Crime Prevention Week. "Ilie increase in crimes of physical violence is alarming," Fred Thunnan, president of the Nampa Exchange Club, said in explaining his organization's sponsorship of this annual event. "Crime is more and more a very personal experience and it is spreading rapidly lo suburban communities such as right here in Nampa." The local club has placed advertisements in this newspaper calling again to the attention of local citizens the availability of tools for marking personal possessions for identification, and "Neighbors Against Crime" cards for use of residents to assist in providing better protection against crime in their own neighborhoods. These arc free and may be obtained at the Nampa pulice station. The theme for this year's crime prevention campaign is: "DEFLATE CRIME" and Ihe message lias been repealed over and over again this week by newspapers along with television and radio stations throughout the nation. "Cutting down on crime is not an easy task," Thurman said, "and that is Ihe reason why we need Ihe education and cooperation of every citizen in Nampa and the surrounding area. Cilizens may write to Crime Prevention, Box 2672, Kenwood Station, Toledo, Ohio 43000, lo receive valuable information on how they can help stop crime. The crime rale is rising so fast that it is important (or everybody to gel involved." The Idaho Kree Press. Kriday.

Blood bank program clarified NAMPA - - A recent United Press International story from Salt Lake Cily carried in many Southern Idaho newspapers may have given many local residents a wrong impression of the Red Cross's blood program in this area,according lo Hobert E Gaddis. administrator of (he lloise Regional Blood Center. The story, which appeared in the Idaho Free Press in late January, referred to a new agreement on blood banking between Ihe I n t c r m o u n t a i n Health Care Corp. and Ihe American lied Cross in the Salt Lake Cily area. It has no effecl whatever on operation o( the Boise lied Cross Regional Blood Center, Caddis stressed. The confusion might arise from the story's statement thai 80 per cent of the blood supply in U t a h , Idaho, and parls of Colorado, New Mexico and Wyoming, is handled Ihrough the American Red Cross. This, Gaddis said, "may be true in terms of lolal amounts of blood used in (hose states collectively, but in Ihe region of Pm Idaho served by the Boise Blood Center. . .100 per cent of the blood used comes directly through the Regional Center." All hospitals in our region, he emphasized, receive their total supply of blood through the voluntary donations of residents of the c o m m u n i t i e s served Ihrough the Boise center.
