New York, Oct. 20.-Defective eye-
sight.. is blamed for an clarminigly
large-proportioni of automoble1 acci-
dents in the recent report of the Eye
'Sight Conservation Council ;of Anmer-
ica which has just comipleted a suir-
vey of the motor vehicle laws of
various state in regard .to the ques-
tion of eyesight.
Pointing te the steadily increashIg
number of such accidents at the rate
of about 2,00t3 a year, the council re-
ports that only four states make stat-
utory reference to eyesight of motor
vehicle operators while five other
states, makting a total of nine, test the
eyesight of applicants for driver's li-
censer.
"Defective vision is, obviously, a1
contributing cause of automobile ac"-
cidents, although no comnprehensiveI
relationship," the report states. "Iii
applicable to the entire motor driving
order to arrive at any conclusive data
.een, made to determine a definite
and authoritative investigation has
population, it would necessitate care-
ful analysis of larger groups."
Accumulated into annual totals, au-
tomobile accidents become an eio _-
Mons .'national catastrophe. Quoting;
the National Bureau of Casualty and
1Surety Underwriters,, time QCoun cil
says that there occurred in 1920,
11,067 , fatal automobile accidents,
12,2;13 in 1921,: 13,050 in 1922, and
15,700 in1(923. "In addition, there were?
270,000 persons injured by automnobile!
accidents in 1920, 307,000 in 1921,
342,00 in 1922, and 392,000 in 1923.
Exepriienjts are being carried out
by several municipal police depart-
meats,' :among, which is the D~etroit
police .department. In May 1924, the
Detroit police department con ducted
a motorist, vision survey of 16'54
motoriuts. apld'found 26.4 per centE
with vision below the normal stand-
ard. Sevente .n persons were lblindl in
one eye, 133, had less than halt viion
in one bye, and 192 had less than two-
th irds' vision in one eye.
The council points to this and of lic,,
