Chapters will be per- nitted to participate in projects sponsored by a reliable medical or lealth agency complying with tech- lical stndards and operational policies approved by the American Red ! ross. In conjuction with this postwar community service, blood plasma declared surplus by the army and lavy at the end of the war is being urned over to the Red Cross for civilian use. The plasma, immune serum, globulin used for prevention ind modicifaction of measles, and other surplus blood derivatives are being supplied to state health departments for distribution to physicians, hospitals, and clinics throughout the state for use without charge ,o patients. Chapters Recruit Chapter participation in a civilian blood donor program consists of recruitment and enrollment of volun- ,eer donors and may include provisions of both technical and non- ,echincal staff and equipment for i center. Authorization for each program must be given by the na- lonal organization. When volunteer donors are recruited by the American Red Cross or such programs, important pro- isions are: (1) that the blood and blood derivatives produced must be urnished by the sponsoring agency o all physicians licensed to practice medicine and surgery and to all ac- leptable hospitals and clinics within lie jurisdiction of the participating jhapter or chapters; (2) that the .ost of blood collection, processing, arid distribution must not be clmrg- d to physicians, hospitals, clinias, or patients; and (3) that the program must be approved by the local lealth department, medical society and hospital agency. No Charfi'e Made At present Michigan and Massa- ihusetts are operating civilian jlood donor programs with Red Jross assistace. In each case the late department of health, is the ponsoring agency and is responsi- )le for the examining, typing, pro- essing, storing, and distribution of he blood. There is no charge made ither to patients, physicians, or lospitals for the blood or blood de- ivatives furnished by those programs. Our Home was lost. But the Red Cross gave it back! «|T's SOMETHING we'll never forget I ... the heavy rains ... the darkness and cold ... the river rising so rapidly we had to leave our home. "We lost everything in that flood ,., the house ... our clothes, everything- When you're faced with that, you're desperate. We had no money, flpthing. Then-the Red Cross came tp help us. :"They took over completely. •'Clothes ,... food ,.. shelter ,., .... they provided everything they could arrange to have our rebuilt. s there's hardly any way rpss doesn't help in emer- gencies ... no problem too big for iv to solve ... tiodiing too small." That's right, there's nothing too big for the Red Cross... no calamity too widespread ... no picture to» black. Its symbol means food to the hungry , . . shelter for the homeless ... a friend to the friendless. Yo« are the Red Cross. Jt is because of your contribution that the i Red Cross is able to help those in need. When disasters strike... when great tragedies or epidemics come... the Red Cross is there by the side of everyone who needs it. Your gift keeps it there. ' Keep Your Red Cross at Their Side., MUIT CARRY ON ,<rsr. • <r ... Here's tofil; tfcey said about the American Bed Cross: BOft HOPE "This war wa§ won by teamwork, and one of the star members of the team was the Red Cross; I saw it on every war front I visited—doing the same great job it has done during every disaster, flood and hurricane Mint has hit us in years." JACK "I don't have to tell you about the Red Cross. Just ask that returned serviceman you know—your son or brother or the kid next door. He knows how much the Red Cross meant to him and his buddies, and now that peace is here, the Red Cross will return once more to the- big tasks waiting on the home front." DINAH SHORE "I saw the Red Cross at work overseas, and I've heard about its work ever since I got back—in letters that Red Cross workers have written for wounded boys who couldn't write themselves,, and in conversations with returned veterans who have told me how much a Red Cross clubmobile meant when they were lonesome and weary." AMOS -N' ANDY "We.were amon# the first entertainers to hit Germany after our army took over, but the Red Cross was already there and had the situation well in hand. We did most of our shows in hospitals. That's where you find out just how much that wonderful Red Cross treatment means." CLARK GABLE "Throughout the entire war the American Red Cross did an outstanding job with our armed forces. Uppermost in the memories of the air corps are the Red Cross aeroclubs and clubmobtles who eternally met the returning missions." ROBERT MONTGOMERY ;'Red Cross workers with the afrri- ed forces—both overseas and in this country—have done a magnificent job. Their spirit of cooperation throughout -Jhe world has added to the mutual understanding of all nations. Your contribution to the American Red Cross reacts in assistance to your own family in times of disaster, as well as in wartime." ROBERT P. PATTERSON' The Secretary of War For four years the Red Cross did the work of joining millions of homes in cities and villages and farm communities in the United States, with millions of men in camps, on ships at sea, in overseas bases and on battlefields all over the world. Your family assistance was of a kind that the military establishment, with its chain of command, could not effectively render. Ovif men will never forget it. In the future we will still need the wholehearted support of the Red "TOSS. We will not throw away the peace \ve have won. That means ;hat two million Americans will be still with the colors a year from low, with more than half of them overseas. The welfare of these soldiers and sailors and marines is a intional responsibility of top prio- •ily. Their welfare will not be secure unless the Red Cross is with them wherever they may be, reminding hem that the people at home have aot forgotten. SEN. 1)WIGHT D. EISENHOWER Uhief of Staff United States Army The Red Cross contributed might- ly to the successful prosecution of .he war. With the peace its services are even more urgently needed to assist in maintaining the highest norale among American troops. Un- every American in uniform overseas is home again the Red Cross will be called up to play a major role n contributing to his comfort and well-being. GENERAL MAKK W. CLARK Com. Gen. U S. Forces in Austria In every war, in every disaster, the 'ictims and sufferers have been able :o retain 1 one glowing spark of hope or prompt and effective assistant. That hope has been the American Red Cross. It is a pleasure, therefore to ex- .end my wholehearted endorsement ,o the American Red Cross, and to ts activities. I express the senti- nents of all members of the U. £3. orces in Austria in stating my sirj- cere trust that the fund campaign, ivhirh can insure the continuation. f tlie Red Cross program, will meet vil-h the greatest success. MAJOR GENERAL B. F. GILES Com. Gen. Africa-Middle East Theater Now that the war is finished, and .ribule is paid to the Allied fight- ng fprces throughout, the world, it s only fitting that I pay a special compliment to the American Red Cross in the AfvicarMtddle • East theater for the o.ustancling Kuccess- ul way in -.vhiph they have unsej- ishly served our troops since the icginniuR of the war. Incongruously perhaps, the end pf the war means no widespread 'xodus of Red Cross workers frojn this theater. They are now faced with a tremendous job of providing entertainment cor the soldiers Impar .iently waiting to go home. Our chief •nission to service and supply acti- ities of the air transport command mist continue until su?b services \o .he Par East are discontinued..Likewise, the/ield of communications nust be maintained to link tlie occupational forces ir» Japan with tne United States. During this last per- od of waiting, when every effort ,is nacle to demobilize.
