The campaign to raise a fund for the blood donation for little Norma Jean was started by the Illinois State Register without the knowledge of the father. Saturday, after Mrs. McMullin had arrived, he visited the State Register office to express his appreciation to all those people of central Illinois who responded to the girl's aid.
