dean of campus life. .

286 pints were given. Yandell said in
the past the average of pints of blood
used to be 250 pints.
He said he feels the reason for the
decline is because of an overall at-
titude about giving among new stu-
dents. But students who start donating
when they are freshmen Yandell said
usually give every time.
Each year the blood drives raise the
same amount of money as Sing Song

the security police have issued this
semester is average.
' Students have six school days after the
date the. tickets are issued o settle their
tickets with the Security Department or
the fines automatically will be charged to
the students' accounts.
McCaleb said he thinks some students
simply ignore the tickets.
"That doesn't really accomplish any-
thing" he said.

The Herald of Truth which is overseen
by the elders of the Highland church
planned the conference because of a de-
mand by people in the Church of Christ
for family help. ...
"Wc saw that families needing help in
coping and solving their problems was the
number one need at Highland and it
probably is in most other churches too"
said Jane Melton conference coordinator
for the Herald of Truth.
"We had the Idea for this conference
and then the Highland elders chose
speakers who are well known in the Chris-
tian family counseling field" she said.
The conference originally was scheduled
for the Hyatt Regency hotel at DFW air-
port but the location was changed when
registration exceeded the hotel's 450-
person capacity. The location was changed
to the downtown Dallas Hyatt Regency
which can accommodate 900 people. All
900 seats already are reserved Melton
