Dull, leader in a hall lozen scrap campaigns here, re- eived the distinguished service :ey Wednesday evening as the ·oung man in Mason City who made the greatest contribution in ommunity service in 1942. The presentation was the fea- ure of a program ot the Junior ivision of the Chamber of Commerce in the Green Mill which Iso included these highlights: 1. Induction of 37 new members nto the organization. 2. A report that 150 radios had ieen collected in a scrap drive. 3. Entertainment by Bob White, magician. ¥ * * Mr. Dull, who is assistant manager of (lie canned meat and sausage department at Jacob E. Decker and sans, has directed salvage campaigns in IMasou City which have soil- cited rubber, aluminum, iron and old radios as well as drives for any kind of scrap available. * ·¥ * in these salvage campaigns ponsored by the Junior Chamber, !ie Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts ave co-operated to make them utstanding successes. Leo Sweesy, n making the aivard, said that Ir. Dull had given more than 20 hours oC work to salvage, ac- ording to a tabulation compiled iy Mr. Bull's associates in the .'ork. In this salvage work "Bob", ccording to a committee of local lusinessmen who selected him for he honor, has wrestled many a ruckload of grimy scrap, per- isted in getting the co-operation £ volunteers and trucks to col- ect the materials, and has fol- through with efforts to get rie scrap speedily into war pro- "uction channels. * * * Mr. Dull, who lives at 937 Delavare avenue northeast, has been mployed for 12 years at Deck- r's.

(Lock photo, Kayenay engraving) RECORDS ABOUT MEN IN SERVICE ARE BEING FILED Archive of Information to Be Maintained at Mason City Library The plan to establish "an archive of information" and records for each of more than three thousand men who have entered the services from Cerro Gordo county was explained Thursday by S. L. Rugland, dean of Mason City junior college, on the KGLO Forum. This project is being undertaken by the Friends of Libraries, Mr. Rugland said, and the Mason City public library is providing the place to keep the records in safety. "Historical ' records," said Mr. Rugland, "are always worth keeping. In these days, when the historical clock registers more events in a month than are produced in a year of peace, there is great danger of our county losing many items." * * * Mr. Rugland called the task of gathering: (be records "immense." He asked co-operation from all groups and individuals. Fathers, mothers and wives are preserving carefully all available data, the speaker said. Churches and other groups are aiding 1 . The Globe-Gazette, he said, is an excellent service by way of recording day-by-day events. * * ¥ "Our proposition," said Mr Rugland, explaining the Friends of Libraries plan in more detail, "is nothing short of a complete record of every man and woman who enters the service from Cerro Gordo county.

Stating that the record compiling would require work and money, Mr. Rugland urged readiness to serve on the committee to be appointed as well as willingness to aid by joining the Friends and paying the 25 cent membership fee. This money, the speaker said, will be used to finance printing and mailing. * * * An individual folder will be assigned each of the three thousand men and women in service from the county, and for the hundreds who will go in the future, Air. Rugland said. * * * "It may be said that the war records work is not necessary to the winning of the'war^ and consequently ought not to be undertaken at the present time. It is true that the war will be won as quickly without keeping these 'records, as with them. It is not war work. * * * "It is work that will yield its full fruit only after the war," Mr. Rugland continued. "It is precisely because those on the active front have neither time nor opportunity, that we on the more quiet home front must maintain the historical continuity." * * * Quoting from the note to relatives, which is attached to each war record blank, Mr. Rugland said: "Part of the blank is for later rise, but if you will co-operate and send in what information is now available, sending additional information later, we shall Dr. Morgan Gives Talk at Lions Club Thirteen patients have received 23 transfusions in the first six weeks of operation of the Cerro Gordo County Medical society blood bank, Dr. Harold W. Morgan, member of the blood bank committee, told the Lions club at the Green Mill English room Wednesday noon. Additions to the 25 pints, at the time the blood bank was started Dec. 7 have raised the total amount received to 46 pints, according to Dr. Morgan. ^Patients, he said, drew heavily on the bank the first weeks to the extent that at one time only one pint of blood was left. Since then deposits at the bank have increased the amount on hand. Whole blood kept for transfusions as lone as 3D days, after which the liquid plasma is drawn off for transfusion purposes. This plasma, may be kept for three or four years at room temperature and does not require typing as is the'case with whole blood. Blood, he said, is of four types and these types cannot be mixed in transfusions without serious and sometimes deadly reactions. For this and other obvious reasons,' the entire administration of the blood bank must be under medical supervision. The formation of a blood bank in the county had its genesis at a meeting of civilian defense medical officers at Des Moines, where the recommendation was was made that larger cities of the state make banks available for possible emergencies. The medical society named Dr. L. R. Woodward and Dr. Morgan on the committee and later other doctors were added, the speaker said. Joseph Wilson Rites to Be Friday; Burial at Elmwood Cemetery Funeral services for Joseph Wilson, 70, who died at a local convalescent home early Tuesday morning, following an illness of about two weeks, will be held at the Patterson funeral home at 1:30 o'clock Friday afternoon.

Concluding, Mr. Rugland said: "This community owes a duty to its citizens, present and future, to ensure a perpetuation of a knowledge and an appreciation of its history. To do the job now is economical of both time and money." thought the cost of needed equipment would be around $2,000 and we approached, the three service clubs about sponsoring the project. Later, because of advances in the handling of blood banks, we found we only required equipment that cost $450, consisting of an ordinary refrigerator, glassware and solutions." Dr. Morgan then explained that with the medical society agreeing to underwrite the project, the Lions put up the $450. A blood bank such as this, Dr. Morgan stated, is of- community interest and should be operated without financial gain to any individual, group or hospital. * ¥ * The physician pointed out that the local blood bank was formed at the time representatives of the state health department were here to draw blood for a state plasma bank, from which v a r i o u s communities could draw their supply in event of emergency. None of this plasma has been returned to Mason City for use. he said. * * * A charge of 527.50 a pint is made for the blood used in transfusion. Each patient is allowed to have friends return two pints at 510 a pint, leaving a net charge of $7.50 to cover the overhead and other expenses.
