Giving is hard; it's harder for some than for others. Some people give freely, some give percentage-wise, some give resentfully and others just don't give. Why should people give anyway, especially when money buys so little and goes so fast. It's hard to say -- you have to feel just right; you have to say "I think it's right -- to do niy share." There are many worthy causes in this country to give to, each performing a duty or advancing a cause. The American Red Cross is one of these. It performs indispensable service in wars, famines, floods, disasters, and in peacetime. Read the review at the right of what your local chapter accomplished in 1951. It's one of sixty-eight such chapters in Arkansas, each doing wonderful work. Let's keep our chapter, we've made our goal in the past. Let's do it this year. This means you will have to give!

One-half of the blood donated goes to the Armed Forces in Korea, the other half stays in Washington County for use in the hospitals. Any citizen of Washington County, or we might-say any patient in any of the hospitals, including the Veterans Administration Hospital, payi absolutely nothing for blood no matter how many pints a patient might need.
