Pioneer Residents Wood River Couple Honored On Golden Anniversary IOOF Installs At Wood River O'Kcllie Summers Seated As Noble Grand Collect 77 Pints Wood River Bloodmobile Visit Falls Short of Goal WOOD RIVER, Jan. 16 — A total of 77 pints of blood was donated during the "Red Cross Bloodmobile's visit, Saturday, at Labor Hail. The visit was sponsored by the Wood River Central Labor Union and the Wood River Township Unit of Community Blood Donors. Saturday's donations did not reach the 178 pints hoped for, and, Guy Harper, president of the union, attributed part of this to several persons being turned away because of colds and recent operations. Carl Roberts, chairman of the Township Unit of Community Blood Donors, said the response of persons who hadn't previously promised blood was good. Of 84 persons who promised a donation, 55 were productive. Six were turned down and the others didn't show up. There were 22 walk-ins. Several persons who were notified on "the day of the visit said they had forgotten about it. Roberts said the turnout of the Lorena Avenue Parent-Teacher Association was commendable. The organization had promised 10 donors and all showed up. Rather than a visit of the Bloodmobile every other month in Wood River, as was maintained in 1949 by the Wood River Central Labor Union, one of the aims of the newly formed township unit is to sponsor a visit each month. Eighty two local organizations comprise the township unit with the purpose of col- ecting enough blood to care for the needs of the area.
