Local Farmers Get Herd Awards BLOOD BANK ONLY GETS 40 PINTS Only 40 pints of blood were donated at the Blood Bank here Monday, although 49 persons offered to give, Red Cross representative Marion Hering announced today. Nine were rejected for health reasons. The amount given is less than Saline area "normally uses during a year," Mrs. Hering pointed out, and several of the donations have been credited to other areas at the donors' requests. "Our local people could give blood elsewhere and credit it to Saline, if they wish to," she added. Although the amount given was disappointing, "we still have enough blood for those who need it," Mrs. Hering emphasized. Blood bank donations were also down in Milan this year. Saline last year collected 59 pints, and 89 pints the year before that. Mrs. Hering expressed her appreciation to all donors and would-be donors who were rejected, and to volunteers who staffed the project.
