BONE MARROW DRIVE . . . Stanford University will hold a bone marrow drive from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 1 in White Plaza. The drive is being held in the hopes of identifying a potential donor for a sophomore suffering from leukemia. The student is of Chinese ancestry, and someone with a similar ethnicity is more likely to be compatible as a donor. Potential donors will be asked to give a small blood sample. The student, Evan Chen, 20, from Walnut Creek, needs to have a bone marrow transplant within the next few months for his treatment to be successful.
