Rehabilitation of Blind
Possible With Training

Army experience in working
with blinded soldiers indicated
that "most young blind adults can
be restored to independence and
social usefulness," members of the
national conference on counseling
Higher Taxes
Could Control
Points Out Limitation
Of Anti-Inflation Plan
There is no clear reason why
control, of inflation could not be
achieved by increasing taxes, ac-
cording to Prof. Gardner Ackley
of the economics department.
General inflation should be con-
trolled by a general measure, he
Political Objections
Political pressure exists against
raising taxes, Prof. Ackley said,
but added that it is equally clear
that there will be political objec-
tions to the proposed scheme of
direct controls over prices and
The only limitation of tax-rais-
ing as an inflationary control is
that while it migh stabilize or
reduce the general level of prices,
prices of some critical items in
great demand might still continue
high, Prof. Ackley said.
Would Take Time
There is nosdoubt thathPresi-
dent Truman is right in that the
institution of price and rationing
controls would take considerable
time, and it would be well to build
up an agency that could do a de-
cent job, if it is to be done at all,
Prof. Ackley continued.
Any program of control will fail
if producers believe controls will
be short lived or can be avoided,
he said. If producers were con-
vinced that the program lacked
the complete support of both the
President and Congress, they
might engage in producer strikes
or hope for legislative exceptions,
Prof. Ackley declared. This was
perhaps the principal difficulty
during the closing months of OPA,
he said..
Particular Groups
One of the objections to spe-
cialized controls is the difficulty
of justifying them to the partic-
ular groups whose products are
controlled, Prof. Ackley warned.
There is also a tendency toward
diversion of resources from essen-
tial products that are controlled to
unessential uncontrolled products,
ISA To Hold
Bridge Contest
Honors, finesse, and grand slams
will be the order of the day next
week when four-member teams
representing recognized campus
organizations and student resi-'
dences square off in the Duplicate
Bridge Tournament sponsored by
the international Students Asso-
Breaking up into two sub-
groups, the teams will battle for
the trophy to be given to the or-
ganization or residence entering
the winning players.
Wednesday is the last day to
enter the tournament, but campus
groups may enter any number of
teams upon payment of a $1 fee
for each entry. All games will be
played at the International Center,
with competitors being chosen by
a draw.

of the blind were told here yester-
day by Dr. Jacob Levine.
A psychologist who was formerly
associated with the Army's con-
malescent hospital for blinded sol-
hers, Dr. Levine described the
irmy's social adjustment training
center at Old Farms Convalescent
Hospital, which aimed chiefly to
yelp newly blinded soldiers accept
heir handicap, and develop other
,otential abilities.
Vocational Training
Vocational training is very im-
>crtant in rehabilitation, because
t enables the soldier to adjust
iimself to his blindness more
asily and restores his self-confi-
ilence to a great extent, he pointed
The creation of similar regional
rehabilitation centers for the civil-
ian blind was recommended by a
panel of speakers.
Tom Rathbone, a member of the
panel and the assistant regional
representative of the federal Of-
fice of Vocational Rehabilitation,;
pointed out the existing inequali-
ties among states in services of-
fered to the blind.I
Greatest Problem
Miss Esther McClain, another
panel member, emphasized the
need for removing the blind person
from his home environment for
vocational rehabilitation. Families
often constitute their greatest
problem, she declared.
Yesterday's round table discus-
sions brought to a conclusion the
three-day conference on counsel-
ing of the adult blind, which has
had its headquarters in the Rack-
ham Building.
