mWdM ®®(2j rpntral • students donated 237 •2f of blood in the campus I? a drive April 7 and 8, accord- bl?t0 Mr Richard J. Lichtenfelt, Airman of the drive. Central's ch 3 300 pints would have been goa\?l if the State Health De- S^t1 Mobile Unit had been SKJ handle the 840 pledges. In order io accomodate those w£ were unable io give blood during ihe campus dnve. spe- Ll drawings for college siu- ?enis are being scheduled ai ihe t Pleasant Community Hospital on Wednesday nighis. In view of all the circumstances, the college blood drive could be Considered successful, m that it nSed more blood donors than 53d be handled by the State Health Department unit during its two-day stay. The reason why many students who had pledged to donate blood, were not called was that the committee who initiated the drive had no idea that the response would reach the magnitude that it did. The Isabella County Red Cross obtained the services of local professional people, such as doctors, nurses, and nurses aids, to handle two extra beds which were set up to take care of the overflow. These people were actually on the scene. However, the routine of the mobile unit was not able to incorporate the services of these people. This, of course, prevented Central from reaching its goal. The committee selected ihe cards ihai came in first, bui many people were unable io give ai ihis particular drawing. Since, many of these people would like to fulfill their pledge, the local hospital and doctors have agreed to handle the drawing at the Community Hospital The designation of the blood will be the same as that drawn during the two days the mobile unit was on campus. The hospital can accomodate 40 students each Wednesday night, until all of the students who want to give blood have donated. Transportation will be provided to the hospital by the college. The awarding of prizes is being postponed in order io include the students giving blood on these Wednesday nighis. All those who wish io make iheir contribution in ihis manner are io leave iheir names and addresses in ihe Dean of Women's Office. "The committee of students and faculty in charge of the drive appreciated the cooperation and response of the students," said Mr. Lichtenfelt. The 237 pints that were given was the largest amount ever drawn in Isabella County. «a^^.^x.'i-""'1*fc"-~^'"'" m VOL.33 CENTRAL MICHIGAN COLLEGE, MT.

Martin Kloische, president of Wisconsin Siaie College, opened ihe conference wiih an address, sfeessang ihe need for communicaiion in today's wosld. "We are engaged in a war in which ideas are our weapons. Every individual should communicate his ideas. The ultimate issues of the day are going to be decided only by ideas advanced which have the power to capture the beliefs of the peoples of the world, said Dr. Klotsche. "Communism actually has very little appeal to the peoples of the world. It is only strong where we are weak. We must see our responsibility and convince peoples of the world that our ideas of freedom are better," he added. At the discussion period follow- ,ing his address, Dr. Klotsche I stated, "One of the failings of our The newspaper is an impor- iani means of communicaiion, stressed Dr. CuEiis D.

"It wouldn't do much good to produce a better newspaper unless something were done to create demand on the part of the people. Newspapers can respond to the social and economic needs of the times and thus influence public opinion. Our citizens must be taught to read and taught to read in the# newspaper, which might be one of the most effective forms of communication," emphasized Dr. MacDougall. : At the final session of the conference, Dr. Donate! Meiklejohn, Associate Professor of philosophy at the University of Chicago, stated his views on "Civil Liberties and Responsibilities." Dr. Meiklejohn believes ihai, our country in general is nofi communicating as ii should, and ihai our ieachers noi commum- ^aSilig^as^ib^y^shsuM-is-ihs-pEi!—.^ masy reason why Americans have noi he&n educaied as w© would like ihem io be. "The duty of a teacher," he said, "is to embody and promote the intellectual life of the community. A good teacher must make students feel responsible. The teacher must be able to freely express himself." "The teacher who is not free cannot be responsible. In order for the teacher to communicate, to be responsible, and to have responsibility pervade the minds of students, he must be able to express himself freely, not being fearful of speaking and acting contrary to written laws," said Dr. Meiklejohn. A coffee hour and a discussion in Keeler Ballroom followed the final session of the conference. Tape recordings of the three general sessions will be available for class use.
