Whole blood—350 pints of it for

The blood, which is for military

hours, the donations will have to be
made at the rate of 80 every hour.
Age Range 18-60
Anyone at least 18 years of age
but not yet 60 may donate blood.

'Street Corner' Review
Sex Education Movie at Lane
Draws Large Throngs of Curious
By Don Smith
“Street Corner,” semi-education
al film at the Lane, is a sincere
and not too bad attempt at im
pressing the masses with the
necessity of “family relations”
(vulgarly termed sex education)
as a method of avoiding unhappy
sex experiences.
The show has an air of excite
ment about it in its pre-filmtime
advertising and write-ups—segre
gated audience, the registered nurse
in attendance, the hygienist who
will lecture, the provocative illus
trations accompanying the ads, all
lead many to expect something
other than what they get.
But few peope who pay their 70
cents admission to find out what’s
going on in the Lane will be dis
appointed. If not an entertaining
evening as some may have hoped,
it is at least an interesting exper
The show has been playing to
full houses. Women can get into
the picture at 2 and 7 o’clock
showings; men can see it at 9
The story is of a sweet, intelli
gent high school girl, Lois Marsh,
who had never been told about sex
by her parents. She has an affair
with the boy to whom she is en
gaged, and discovers after he has
left for college that she's going
to have a baby.
She can never get courage up to
tell her parents even that she is
engaged, since they consider her
still a little girl, but she does tell
her boyfriend that she’s going tc
be a mother. He gets killed in an
automobile accident when driving
back from college to marry her.
Lois is naturally worried and
confused; and finally gets reluct
ant advice from an older friend
who gives her money and the ad

“By the end of this month, we will have a University civil de
fense program so organized as to enable us to take action within
24 hours' notice if necessary," S. W. Little, head of the Univer
sity's defense program, and dean of the School of Architecture
and Allied Arts, declared Thursday.
The University is under state jurisdiction, and has established
its own civil defense program. However, Little said that it would
cooperate closely with the city
of P.ugenc.

by the Red Cross, and a motor
corps will he organized. Roth
divisions will consist largely of
faculty members, with some stu

To Name Officials
“Officials from the faculty in
charge of housing, hospitalization,
emergency building repair, food,
sanitation, and communications will
be named soon,’’ Dean Little said.
Certain buildings on the campus
offering most protection and ade
quate space will be designated as
atomic radiation shelters.
The Student Union has been
chosen by the county medical board
to serve as an auxiliary branch of
Sacred Heart hospital, and will be
supervised by Dr. Marion H. Miller,
assistant University physician.
UO to House Evacuees
Fraternities, sororities, dormitor
ies—all campus living organiza
tions will be used for housing
evacuees, as necessity demands. In
emergencies such as housing, the
University and city of Eugene will
exchange facilities,
"Heat, food, electricity, water-,
and other utilities will probably be
supplied by the physical plant,’’
added Dean Little.
A secretariat will be organized to
handle statistics. Tentative plans
call for the location of official gen
eral headquarters to operate from
the speech department, communi
cation facilities there being super
ior to those of other campus build
