Dr. Sink Talks
Over WJR On
Care Of E y es
Emphasizes Safeguarding
In School, At Home, And
During Later Life
Dr. Emory W. Sink of the Health
Service told listeners over station
WJR at 2 p.m. yesterday how eyes
should be taken care of at school,
in the home, and during later life.
In taking care of a child's eyes,
Dr. Sink said, "Probably the most
important attention which should be
given to a child as he first enters the
school, is a careful examination of
the eyes by a competent examiner
who will determine the powers of
vision and the extent of eye defects
and disease."
Blames Faulty Lighting
He said that faulty lighting, im-
proper situation of windows, and
wrong position of artificial lights in
the classroom ofden produce eye
Parents, according to Dr. Sink,.
oftentimes through ignorance and ne-
glect pay little attention to minor
eye conditions. "All cases where the
eyes are red and painful, or dis-
charges are present, should be con-
sidered as contagious and placed un-
der the supervision of an eye special-
ist. Proper care and caution are us-
ually not taken in the home to pre-
vent the spread of contagious eye
diseases to other members of the
family. All cases of conjunctivitis
or pink eye are readily spread by the
use of the common towel and by
hand to eye contacts."
From the standpoint of later life,
he continued, the eyes should receive
the same constant care and attention
as during earlier ages.
Offers Suggestions
In closing Dr. Sink emphasized the
following suggestions regarding the
simple rules for safeguarding the
eyes: Do not rub the eyes with the
fingers or hands; be careful not to
get anything into your eyes; never
face a bright light while reading;
do not read while the sun shines into
the eyes or on the printed book be-
fore the eyes; do not attempt to read
when the light is too dim - there
should be plenty of light but no glare.
Hold printed material about 14
inches from the eyes; do not attempt
to read in a moving automobile or
train; do not use towels used by others
who have eye disease; have your eyes
examined frequently to detect defects

Sends Publication


The November Bulletin of the
School of Education, the second 'in
this year's series, was issued yester-
Containing articles on education
written by members of the education
school staff, it has been sent to hun-
dreds of school superintendents and
teachers throughout the state.
Trow and Davis Write
Among the articles in the November
Bulletin are "Films For Student Edu-
cation," by Prof. William C. Trow,
and "The Tercentenary Celebration,"
by Prof. Calvin C. Davis, secretary of
the School of Education.
Other contributors are Prof. Clif-
ford Woody, Prof. L. W. Keeler, and
Prof. Francis D. Curtis.
In "Films and Student Education,"
Professor Trow declares that there is
"needed a central agency for the dis-
pensing of information as to what
films are available for use on the
college level." He praised the use of
motion pictures in education, but
pointed out as the chief criticism
that "photography will be better if
the work is handled by professionals,
but the results are apt to look staged.
"The boast that secondary schools
of the United States provide equal
cultural advantages for every normal
boy and girl is to a large degree not
in vain," Professor Davis stated in his
editorial, "The Tercentenary Cele-
Discusses Anniversary
He discussed the three-hundredth
anniversary of the establishment of
secondary schools in this country,
which will be celebrated in 1935.
After pointing out means to which
the schools could better serve their
end, he concludes that the celebra-
tion affords "a rare occasion to an-
chor the principles of democratic
opportunity more firmly than ever in
the life of our republic."
The purpose of the Bulletin, ac-
cording to Dean James B. Edmon-
son, is to keep school officials through-
out the State informed on the views
of the staff of the School of Edu-
cation and on new educational trends
in general.

Requirenents For
Entrance Debate
Discussion of the question of lower
entrance requirements for freshmen
entering the University occupied the
whole time of the meeting of the fac-
ulty of the literary college until the
move for adjournment was heard at 6
p.m. yesterday.
Daniel L. Rich, director of classifi-
cation and secretary of the literary
college reported after the meeting
that further discussion on the sub-
ject will be held next Monday when
a vote will be taken and a report
presented to the Board of Regents
at their next meeting on Dec. 10.
The question of lower entrance re-
quirements was first brought up last
year and was carried over when no de-
cision could be reached.

by the association, in which annual
surveys are carried on to discover the
factors leading to the deaths of young
men and women of college age from
tuberculosis. In last year's survey,
over 500 of the 1,031 tuberculosis
deaths were investigated, and accord-
ing to Dr. Douglas, "Although the
work has not yet been completed, itI
has gone far enough to prove that
among all contributing factors late
diagnosis of the disease stands out
The statistics also showed that the
heaviest losses from tuberculosis are
suffered by age groups between 15-
40, and that this disease accountedl
for more deaths in 1933 among col-
lege groups than any other.

The Washtenaw chapter of the
American Red Cross announced yes-

The annual membership is $1, while
other memberships range from $5 to
$25 and upwards.
The $1,700 raised so far does not
include solicitation throughout the
rural district. The roll call in Ypsilanti
has been practically compieted and
when that report is turned in together
with the outlying districts in the
county, the sum will be greatly in-
creased, Red Cross officials believe.
