Carey Asks ;
Board to Fire
A recommendation by the chair
man of the Student Union Inter
view and Referral committee that
hia organization be done away
wllh was rejected in a meeting of
the SU Board laat week.
Bill Carey, who haa headed the
committee ainee ita formation laat
spring, brought the proposal be
fore the board on grounds that ]
such a committee was not neces
sary under present condition*.
He told board members that the !
fnnetiona of hia eommittee could I
lie eaaily handled by individual1
Directorate members. (The Direc-I

each of the SU atanding commit- !
Carey pointed out that inter
viewing for eommittee members,
the primary function of the I and1
R group, could he carried out by i
the eommittee- heads in the- few
instances where interviewing is
necessary. He also stated that the
efficiency reports of committee
members that are kept on file in
the SU were seldom referred to
by the Directorate when they need-'
cd new members.
Board Chairman Hank Panian,
in expressing the reasons for turn
ing down the proposal, said that
stich a eommittee, even though not
of primary importance now, should

future when interest in SU acti

He also said that membership
appointments by individual chair
men could lead to favoritism’s be

Maintaining efficiency report
cards, Panian said, is necessary if
committee members arc to get
credit for work they contribute.
They also provide a reference for
honorarics to consult in their quest
for new members.
UO Blood Drive
May Be Biggest
The blood drive which begins i
Tuesday can very well result in!
national publicity for the Univer-i
sity of Oregon.
If the quota of 1,000 pints is j
reached at Oregon, it will be the i
largest amount of blood drawn |
from one college in the United
States, Gerry Pearson, blood drive
co-chairman, stated. "We arc
hopeful that Oregon State will
nbt have an opportunity to gain!
this distinction. In order to keep
them from it we must reach our
quota," Miss Pearson continued.
For those students who gave
blood in the last drive Jan. 22, the!
Red Cross has announced that it
is perfectly safe to give again. The
usual waiting time is 60 days. How
ever, anyone who has had jaundice,
tuberculosis, undulant fever, or any
major surgery in the past year,
should not give blood.
Students who have not received
a pledge card and who would like
to give blood may pick them up
at the booth in the Co-op. The
committee has asked that students
turn in pledge cards by tonight.
They may be put in boxes in the
Co-op and Student Union, or given
to Gerry Pearson, Kappa Alpha
Theta, or Roger Nudd, Sigma Al
Cards recently mailed giving
donors their blood type should be
