DONORS LIVE IN 77 LOCALITIES Department Has List of Names When Needed Des Moines, (/P)--The state health department has on file the blood type of nearly 4,000 lowans, it .reported Friday. These potential blood donors are located in 77 cities and towns where department technicians have obtained blood frbm volunteers for the serum which it distributes throughout the state for emergency use. When an lowan donates blood in one of these blood clinics, a card is placed on file in the state health department giving the donor's name, "age,; address and blood type. If a rare blood type is needed for a transfusion in any of the 77 communities where 'the clinics have been held, the department is able to furnish a list of persons in that locality having the correct kind. "I don't know of any other state organized to co,ver the entire state in the. collection of blood serum," Dr. Carl F. Jordan, director of the division' o£ preventable diseases, said. He explained^ that most programs for collection of serum cover only a small radius around large cities. Iowa's ' program under the state department of health has-worked "very well," Dr. Jordan added. , Blood obtained by the technicians at the clinics is brought to the department headquarters in Des Moines, the serum pooled and distributed where needed. Serum, Dr. Jordan said, will keep the individual alive in most emergency cases until a donor with the same blood type can be found for a whole blood transfusion.

All labor was do- special elections to fill 8 legislative positions. Republican State Chairman Willis York said his "organization is jubilant over the outcome" in which the party retained all seats at stake. Jake More, chairman of state democrats, was in Washington,' trying to line up a Jackson Day banquet speaker for Iowa. Other members of the party took heart at narrow margins in Marion and Crawford county races. Both republicans and democrats professed to find a favorable drift in the voting.

Both Senators Charles W. Wiide, Fail-field, and T. M. Thompson, Creston, hail from counties, whose position in a senatorial rotation system ends in 1944. If present house members had won the senate scats in. the special election, it'would have been necessary to fill the house seats vacated by calling another election. Representative A. L. Doud, Jr.. Douds, has been reported eyeing the 2nd district senatorial post. There have been rumors that both Representatives R. B. Hawkins, Leon, and X. T. Prentis, Mt. Ayr, might seek the 5th district office.

The governor's office leads the pack with a 15 per cent average. CAUCUS STRAWS--First indication of what might be the legislative answer on state income tax forgiveness will come from the republican caucuses preceding the session.

State house observers believe it improbable but possible that Wilkinson and daughter, Norma, are visiting Miss Bernice Wilkinson in Omaha. Waucoma--Pvt.

Glancing through this tiny catalog is like a little glimpse into your." grandparents' lives because in 1876 this catalog offered Albina bustles for 25 cents and Lotta bustles for only 15 cents. (Granddaughter today gets "Scanty Panties" for 35 cents.) When grandma,, then wrinkle- less and giddy, got a dollar from papa she could buy 1 hoop skirt, 1 bustle and 1 hair braid with which to dazzle the smooth-faced swain who is now your grandfather.
