And every year the total number of pints donated is watched eager­ ly. The record at PSC is 501 pints, donated in the spring of 1971, which means that more than half of the PSC students and faculty members reported to Buxton gym­ nasium because some potential donors are always turned away be­ cause of colds or other reasons. So each time the Blood Bank has been held since then the question is, will we top the old record? This fall the Blood Bank, held October 24 and 25, fell short of the record; the total was 319 pints, or approx­ imately 400 fifths, for those of you who uses fifths as your stand­ ard measure. However, this the do­ nation of 319 pints still indicates a strong interest on the part of the PSC community in helping other people. And there’s still next next spring to shoot for 502 — or more — pints! The Blood Bank is sponsored at PSC by the members of the Inter- Fraternity Council and they were on hand in the gym in force both days, assisting their classmates and the Red Cross nurses. Since spring of 1971 the I.F.C. has held a “ keg contest,” donating a keg of beer to the dorm or group that has the highest percentage of members reporting to donate blood. White Pine Camp won the keg this time with 100% of its 22 residents reporting. Since last year the Red Cross blood unit has been accompanied by a mobile unit which is used to immediately process a large per­ centage of the donated blood in order to save the cryprecipitates and platelets which are used in treating hemophiliacs. So, the pint of blood that each of us donates can now be utilized even more effectively.

There were many displays, four floors of them to be exact, de­ monstrating the latest innovations in the hotel and restaurant bus­ iness world. Every type of equip­ ment that would be required to run a hotel or food service oper­ ation was on display. The students spent time browsing around all of these booths, picking up ideas and information about the old stand­ ards and the new ideas in the bus­ iness. Monday morning, October 23, twenty students were invited to a breakfast sponsored by the Inter­ Continental Hotels. The corpor­ ation presented its story to us in hopes that we would be interested in working for them upon grad­ uation. PSC was the only two-year school invited to this event. At noon, most of the students went to the Plaza Hotel for the Opening Luncheon. Robert Beck, Dean of the School of Hotel Administration at Cornell Uni­ versity, was guest speaker. He spoke on the growth and develop­ ment of Cornell’s Hotel School. As has been true in past years, Paul Smith’s took the largest delegation of students to this event. We had more students there than any other hotel school. At 6:00 p.m. a Paul Smith’s Col­ lege Party was held at the Summit Hotel. All students went as guests of Dr. Buxton and enjoyed a de­ lightful meal. We met many alumni and important men in the Hos­ pitality Industry. John Kinerk, ex­ ecutive Vice President of New York State Hotel Association, John St. John, from the Academy Travel in London who arranged the PSC European Tour, Dr. Donald Lundberg, author of our text book, and Dr. Gerald Lattin, head of the School of Hospitality Services at Florida International University were all present. Many of our own facutly members and staff were al­ so present. Dr. Buxton gave a short talk on the growth of Paul Smith’s and announced some plans for development in the near future. All of the hotel students found this to be an important part of their education, and may just make it an annual event. by Jim Pahl Mr. Harry Purchase, head of PSC’s Hotel Management Department. Mrs. Purchase and Dr. Buxton attended the New York Hotel Show. PHOTO BY GREG KING I. F. C. Childrens’ Halloween Party The annual I. F.
