Darrow Recommends NRA Abolition

Cites Great Opportunities I
Open To Doctors In The
Modern World
Dean Albert C. Furstenberg yes-
terday discussed the vocation of medi-
cine in the fourth of the group of
lectures in the vocational series giv-
en for the students of the College of
Literature, Science and the Arts.
Professor Furstenberg encouraged
all those interested in the practice of
medicine to retain their ambitions,
saying that there was never a greater
opportunity for doctors than at theI
present time. As possible branches
of service to enter, he cited research
work, Army and Navy surgery, gen-
eral practioneering and specializing.
A possibility that entrance require-
ments, for the University School of
Medicine will be made less rigorous
was announced by the Dean.
"This does not mean that our high
standards of scholarship for appli-
cants will be reduced, but that per-
haps such requirements as Latin may
be dropped still, but still strongly en--
couraged for the student," he said.
Statistics prove that students of
medical schools possessing A.B. de-
grees are more successful than others,
even those having B.S. degrees, said
Dean Furstenberg.
In selecting his school, the student

cated the conventional steering wheel,
clutch and brake pedals, and acceler-
ator. Directly in. front of the observer
there was situated a cloth tunnel
through which he was asked to look.
Run Small Auto
In the tunnel was mounted an end-
less revolving belt, and a small auto-
mobile was suspended just over the
belt. On its surface was traced a model
highway, winding from side to side
and crossing bridges and railroad
tracks as the belt revolved.
The driver was allowed to steer the
litle car over the road for a few min-
utes, during which time his, atten-
tion would become concentrated on
keeping the car on the road. Then
the stop light was flashed on, and
an electrical timing apparatus, with
an accuracy to one hundredth of a
second, recorded the time required
for the driver to move his foot from
the accelerator pedal to the brake.
It is hoped that the experiment will
be brought to the University as part of
the exhibition to be put on by the
Engineering Open House next month,
Professor Housel stated.

reckless night driving, Professor Hou-
sel stated. Careful surveys have in-
dicated that a driver's limit of vis-
ibility, with headlights focused for
maximum visibility, amounts to only
100 feet. Since average driving con-
ditions at 40 miles per hour have
been shown to require a distance of
from 116 to 156 feet in which to stop,
the urgent need for greater caution
in night driving cannot be over-em-
Statistics cited by the State High-

number of accidents and traffic fa-
talities during the rush hours between
6 p.m. and 10 p.m. than during the
rush hours between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m.
Many Cars Faulty
When this situation is associated
with the fact that the total stopping
distances for drivers is computed on
the basis of perfect automotive con-
ditions, while national surveys have
shown that in 3,200,000 automobiles
examined three out of four were de-
fective, 34 per cent in brakes, 48 per
cent in tires, and 69 per cent in lights,
the hazards of night driving are seen
to be greatly increased, Professor
Housel pointed out.
The unique experimental apparatus
used to take the tests was designed by
F. R. Olmstead, assistant research en-
gineer at the Highway Laboratory.
The person to be tested was asked to
sit in a chair similar to the ordinary
driver's seat, and before him were lo- t

Stopping Distance Figured
Taking an average speed, 40 miles
per hour, under medium driving con-
ditions in which the road is only
slightly wet, a car driven by the aver-

feet before it can be brought to a
stop, the data reveals.
