The bloodmobile was in Hartford at the Methodist Charch, six hours, from 12:00 to 6:00 p.m. A total of 145 pints of blood, plus a 29 pint deficit incurred on a pre- vious visit of the bloodmobile, were needed putting the total number of pints at 174. It was noted in an earlier report, that for Ohio County to be under 'Blanket Coverage' that seventy (70) percent of the quota or 70o of 145 pints would be needed.

Stewart said "We searched the building inch by inch," but no bur- glar was to be seen anywhere in the establishment. Nothing had been taken, or even disturbed, according to Weedman...a truck loaded with beer had been pulled into the garage the evening before for repairs, and was to be left overnight and it is the supposition of some of the officials that the mysterious prowler just want- ed to quench his thirst, but was foiled by the appearance of Stewart. The part that remains a mystery is how did the prowler enter, and how did he leave as no evidence was found to indicate a forced entry. It is also the supposition of the law- men, that the "Ghost prowler" left by way of the electronic door on the garage. The door is opened by a switch on the inside of the building. Once the door is opened, and the "close" button pushed, the door des- cends slowly enough for a man to run under and let the door close behind him.
