THE FRESNO BEE ; · THE REPUBLICAN Fresno, California, Saturday Evening, August 3J7l968~ By Karl M. Klduer When deposits in one of Fresno's most unusual banks fell off alarmingly one day recently, the hankers themselves w e r e johnny-on-the-spot to build them up. ·-'·· Tire institution is the Central California Blood Bank, which supplies-more than 40 San Joa- q'uin Valley hospitals and cliniisi with 'some 1,400 pints of blood for patient use every month. On the day when the blood reserves^.fell to a dangerously lOHr.'pointf.'th'e bank's sponsors, the Fresno County Medical -Society,, sent' out urgent notices to its ; physician-members. M o r e t h a n , 100" ; responded, rolled up thcir'sleeyes and lay quietly while the blood so desperately needed by. bank customers was careully,:;sfphoned from t h e i r veins.\ .»,-., · ' The. emergency situation, says Dr. -H.

Because .this is the vac^i- tion season, many .of these were not available when the shortage occurred. There has been a steady increase in the calls for whole Mood and plasma from three hospitals which rely on the Bank 10 furnish Uiern. More and more, the demands on the bank are becoming in excess of donor blood-available. "This points up the need for more donors," Ginsburg says. "Actually, anyone can volunteer ire several ways th'is can be done, to the 1 donor's ad- vantage.-He.can dictate.its use "It shows that we are running by an .'individual, if he so de- sires, or he can build up credits for himself -and 'his family against the time when tie, or they, may need blood." There are several blood donor by the bank which build up credits for use by their members or members of their families. To Organization It is not unusual for ah individual to appear at the bank, at 2155 Amador St., in Fresno, and say he is volunteering a pint of blood to be credited'to a fraternal or civic organization, or to. a-particular patient who, for example is to undergo open heart surgery in the Valley ChiL- drens Hospital, or another type of surgery in another hospital.
