Better yet; make.two appointments, one for yourself and one for a friend. And be prepared with the answers to these excuses your friend may give: • I'm saving it for emergencies. (The need for blood is constant.) • My insurance company covers the blood I need. (Insurance can pay the medical costs of services to. blood but dollar bills can't be transfused. Blood comes from people for people.) • I already gave this year. (You may safely give every eight weeks.) • Other people must be giving enough blood. (The need is increasing at a consistent rate.) • I'm too old. (When in good health, donors may be 17 to65 years old.) • I'm too busy. (It only takes about an hour when / appointments are made in advance. > • The Red Cross makes too much money on my blood. (Red Cross does not sell blood — there are charges to the hospitals forepart of the expense of collecting, processing and! distributing this blood.) \ ■ • It may not be the right type. (All types are needed everyday.) • I need all the blood I have. (The average adult has 10 to 12 pints of blood and medical science research shows that the healthy person may safely give a unit of blood; the body replaces the volume within a few hours.) The list grows with time and your imagination. Blood comes only from people. It can't be manufactured. Your, gift could mean life for a sick child, an accident victim, or an elderly person facing surgery. -r ,.,... ...,., Dr. Norman -Hosansky, Blood Donor council. president, urges community members to forget the excuses and give life with blood on May 4.

By Joseph Palakoff WASHINGTON, (JTA) - With the House of Representatives having overwhelmingly approved without change its In¬ ternational. Relations Committee's bill to counter the Arab boycott of Israel and Americans who do business with Israel, foes of the measure were expected April 21 to,center their strength in the Senate to ease restrictions prohibiting Americans from complying with the boycott. The Senate "was expected to take up its Banking- Committee's version sometime this week. Since the Senate . legislation is certain tos differ ""from the House measure, the issues will be ultimately fought in the Senate-House measure, the issues will be ultimately fought in the Senate-House conference where, agreement must be attained before the Congress can vote on identical legislation. Anti-boycott proponents generally see the House measure as stronger than the Senate version since its restrictions are regarded as making it more difficult for Arab countries to maneuver American companies into discriminating against other Americans or circumventing the intent of the law. The Senate and House versions differ mainly on the unilateral selection clause and means of complying with local laws by a com¬ pany operating within an Arab country. With the acquiesence of the Carter Administration, the support pf organized labor and the leadership of both Republican and Democratic 'parties, a bipartisan wave of support buried the opposition to the legislation in the House by a better than 8-1 margin. The vote was 364-43 with 26 not voting. Some negative votes came from those who op¬ posed other sections of the Export Administration Act of which' the new anti- boycott legislation is a part.
