Red Mogen Dovid Honors Humphrey; Dedicates Bloodmobile in His Name

A new bloodmobile, first of a fleet destined for Magen David Adom, the Israel Red Cross Service, was dedicated today in honor of Vice-President and Mrs. Hubert H. Humphrey in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza here. The vehicle was presented by the Women’s Division of American Red Mogen Dovid for Israel, the supply and support wing of Magen David Adom.

The Vice-President, who was introduced by Congressman Emanuel Celler, national chairman of American Red Mogen Dovid, paid warm tribute to the work of the Israeli national ambulance and First-Aid service. The bloodmobile and three ambulances are to be shipped to Israel this week.
