Few charities that we are asked to give to are more meaningful than this one, and it costs nothing in dollars and cents. What could be more humanitarian than the ~iving of life blood for the relief of others. There is n,Jt one of us who would not Kive of our blood 1o save a life of a loved one. But it. takes a , ,ense of enuine sacrifice and feeling of true brotherho(t to give to those who we may never see. This is Christian low., showing itself at: its very best, We urge all those who are physically able to make this sacrifice. It means so little to the R'iver, hut s) very mu('h to the receiver. (;iw to the Blood Bank, and go h tne with the knowledge that you have helped save a life. BOOKS The American Liln-ary Association hehl a meeting in Washington this week.
