The request involved allowing students 17 or over to voluntarily donate blood through a statewide project of the Texas Association of Vocational Health Occupations.

Board policy stales, "no fund drives, clothing drives, or solicitations involving students shall be conducted in the schools " "1 Interpret this to be a solicitation." Wilson said. Wilson added that the Board did have a policy provision to "suspend" any policy. Dr. Gerald Perrytnan, board president, raised questions for the Board to consider in making their decision. "I can remember here recently the problem of the Bibles," Perryman said. apparently referring to the request by the Gideon Bible Society to distribute free Bibles to students in Brazosporl scluwls.
