The public is invited to meet and talk with the author during mobile isit is not the most successful visit ever held tr.ere, The record W22 frt Maf'h Oi 1968 when iJi of blood were donated. A goal of 150 pints had been set for the visit, rst tine a fraternity has ever assumed ir- 1 lespoosibility oi Blood- tnvbile here Donations would have needed 150 had some of students who wanted to give had permission slips signed by their parent Persons under 21 years of age and over 18 who are not on their own must have the permission of a parent in order to donate blood. In preparation of the Bloodmobile visit, the fraternity and college mailed parental releases to parents of college students before the Easter holidays. The Red Cross provided stamps for the return of the permission slips to the local Red Cross office. This new procedure worked much better than efforts in the past to get parental releases signed by the students themselves. The problem yesterday, according to officials, was that some parents either forgot or neglected to return the permission slips. An effort is under way to solve this problem by asking parents to sip the release at the first of the college year, when they are sent many forms to sign. Of the 148 persons who did give blood yesterday, 76 were students, members of the faculty or personnel of Elon College. Other outstanding contributors to the visit included Carolina Biological Supply Co. whose employes gave 37 points of blood, and Engineered Plastics with a donation of 20 pints. A total of 55 persons giving blood yesterday were first- time donors, while 26 persons gave replacement donations. Nineteen persons were rejected as donors. Officials were very cop plementary of the fraternity members who assisted volunteers at the Bloodmobile visit. Their helpfulness and interest in the visit and their presence at the Bloddmobile is said to have made it a joy for volunteers to work yesterday. The Eton College visit followed a Red Cross Bloodmobile visit in Mebane Monday, during which 98 pints of blood were collected. Serving as physicians for Monday's visit were Drs. G.Y.

Club Honors New Citizens The Burlington Civitan Club last night honored Alamance County residents who became naturalized citizens of Ihe United States during the past year during a meeting at Huey's Steak House. Avery Thomas, char- man of the Citizenship Activities Committee, arranged the program and introduced members of his committee who had i i the new naturalized citizens in their homes. Oscar Miles introduced Miss Angelica Kraveitz, a native of Bremen, Germany, who came to America seven years ago. Miss Kraveitz attended Turrentine Junior High and graduated from Williams High School last year. She lives with her grandparents at 418 Hawthorne Lane. Ralph i introduced John Nick Bakatsias, a native of Karitsa, Greece, who came to America nine years ago. He finished high school in 1964 and attended classes at Elon College at night while working during the day. He now is the owner of Burlington Sandwich Shop in Burlington and Mebane Mobile Homes in Mebane.

Andrea, born of Lebanese parents in Turkey, was adopted by Mr. and Mrs. Wflkins in 1965 while they were serving in the mission field for their church. Wiley P. Woolen, clerk of Alamance Superior Court, was the speaker for the program. Mr. Woolen spoke on citizenship rights and responsibilities and urged everyone to become involved in community-acUvi- ties. "A resident may be only a parasite who takes everything he can get from his community, giving nothing in return," he stated. "Citizenship involves much more than simply being a resident. It means giving of ourselves to help build a better community and nation." Mike Tucker, a sophomore at Cummings Hgh School, gave a report on the International Awareness n- ference held al the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He expressed appreciation to the Civitan Club for making it possible for him to be a delegate.

Continued From 1C the bugs doing that the biological conception of a waste treatment plant is destroyed," Mr. Baker observed. The organisms have an almost unlimited ability to survive, Mr. Baker explained, as long as their environment or food is consistent, but in a city which handles a sig- nificent amount of industrial waste there is a problem. And that's the situation here. The varying acidity and alkalinity from industry is fatal to the bugs, thus destroying their ability to purify industrial and domestic Presently the East Burlington Plant is the city's largest site for treating waste, especially industrial waste. It has a daily capacity of six million gallons. A total of five million gallons of waste is processed daily, three million gallons of which is industrial waste from Burlington Industries, me public works director stated. The city processes only 200, 000 gallons of sewage daily from Western Electric, but Mr. Baker said the firm was asked to pre-treat its waste because it is the only metal finishing industry in the city. Toxic metallic salts are the residue from such an industry. Mr. Baker estimates that it win cost Burlington Industries tens of thousands of dollars to bufld a pre-treating plant capable of producing a waste that wffl be unharmful to the city system. "We don't feel it's the city's responsibility to use the taxpayers' money to make major modifications at the pUnt just to treat waste from Burlington Industries or anybody else," be said. "They have been cooperative in discussing the problem, but since this will be very expensive no solution been reached." Mr. Baker alternative is for us to pre- treat the waste at our plant. We've done this in other locations. It would take about year to set up," he concluded. City officials, however, have indicated they are not keen on making alterations at the East Burlington plant, since it possibly would involve spending tax money to treat waste only from the private firm. "None of this means the city will stop treating Burlington Industries' waste" Mr. Baker explained, "but they need to pre-treat their waste to remove the killing agents before we take it." James Stallings, i superintendent of water and waste treatment plants, said the East Burlington facility should be expanded in four or five years, since it presently is operating "right at capacity." He pointed out, however, that industrial waste still win need pre-treatment. Little Alamance a Treatment Plant, the city's other sewage facility, is handling four million gallons a day, while its capacity is only two million. "This gross overload is causing the plant's efficiency rate to be only 35 per cent," Mr. Stallings pointed out, "but with the opening of the new eight million gallon plant next year the rate will be brought back up to a proper level." He explained that the inefficiency of the plant was resulting from the overload and not from industrial waste, which composes half the load. Farm Hare Fiftfc Of l-S.
