`Legally Blind' Are Given Assistance
The United States Department of
Labor estimates that over 1,000-
000 Americans are "legally" blind.
In general, you are legally blind
if you can read the headlines in a
newspaper but not the small print.
This statement assumes that the
individual has gotten the best pos-
sible correction of his vision with
the use of eye glasses. Any phy-
sician or eye specialist can deter-
mine whether the individual fits
into this category by a simple eye
Raymond J. Wuenschel, Execu-
tive Director of the Associated
Blind Service s, states: "Most
people who fit within the legally
blind group are not aware of the
services and benefits available to
them. For example, the legally
blind person is entitled to the fol-
1. A property tax exemption on
the first $2,000 tax assessment.
(Both city and county taxes).
2. An extra $600 federal income
3. Social Security benefits if the
loss of vision is sufficiently severe.
A legally blind person is entitled
to use a white cane as an aid to
safety in travel. The Department
of Street Railways in Detroit per-
mits any person who needs to use
the white cane to ride free of
Wuenschel further states, "It is
not safe for an individual to travel
about the city with this degree of
sight loss without a white cane."
The Associated Blind Services, a
non-profit organization, will pro-
vide any legally or totally blind
person with a standard wooden
white cane free of charge. The
cane will be mailed upon tele-
phone request to the agency's
headquarters at 7338 Woodward,
