The youth has been a victim of Mediterranean anemia most of his life and periodically has to receive wliole blood to replace the red cells which are cast off by the disease. Already approximately 70 pints of blood have been ln,iected into the boy's veins and more will be required in the future. Son of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Randall, 324 Center-st, the boy has to be taken to a hospital every four to six weeks for a transfusion. Frequency of the transfusions depends upon his blood count. It is also a factor in the amount of whole blood fij \ he receives, sometimes It is Hi I only necessary to give him one pint and others Ire requires two. Blood For 6 Years The father said that "Tommy" has been getting bloo3 tor nearly six years but in the early da .vs he only required a couple of transfusions a year. As the boy became older and more active, his Dlood requirements became higher and more frequent. When the third grader at the Huron Ohio-st elementary school first started getting blood the parents either had to pay for it or get two donors for each pint that he requii-ed at the, hospital. Since the Red Cross bloodmobile returned to Erie-co after outbreak of the Korean conflict it has cost the family nothing for the blood,, Hospitalization and medical insurance now covers most of "the expense brought on by the disease. The parents said that "Tommy" is active around home and school most of the time but when his blood count drops to ttte point where another transfusion "fading with every! j.s nece.s.sary, they can notice a decline in his physical and men- Jordan For Riotm ^nX Situation At seamen Battle^ Florida •MiMAn IA Police After mman Is ^^^^^ Still Tense Fire Rips Through Pine Grove; Debris Over Wide Area JACKSONVILLE.
