Last year 211 out of every 1000 stu-
dents enrolled in the University took
advantage of the facilities offered by
the Ophthalmology department of
the Health Service to have a thor-
ugh eye examination.
This department is serviced by Dr.
Emory W. Sink with the aid of an
assistant, and has tested the eyes of
over 25,000 students since Dr.. Sink
first took over in 1919.
Freshmen whose preliminary eye
test given during the fall entrance
physical examination indicates need
for further attention are advised to
come to Health Service for the com-
plete check-up including the use of
refracting drops.-

of 175 students per 1000 have been

The rise in number of examinations

Any student is entitled to this eye
examination but appointments should
