OPTICAL INVENTION:
Skeptical Students Deny New
Eye Fatigue Gauge Gadget

ALLEY CATS, BEWARE:
Father, Son Collect Felines for Laboratory

By PAT JAMES
Maybe the president of Tufts
College can prove that six hours
of continuous reading doesn't tire
the eyes, but Michigan students
are still skeptical.
As one coed put it, "If your eyes
didn't get tired after reading for
;ix hours, our professors would be
giving us a lot more bluebooks."
Measures Fatigue
The Tufts College president has
been experimenting with a gadget
which is hooked onto the reader,
and is supposed to show how fa-
tigued his eyes become.
Prof. Francis Appears
In National Magazine
Prof. Thomas Francis, Jr., of
the .public health school, will be
featured on the "Interesting
People" page of the December is-
sue of a national magazine.
Interest is focused on Dr. Fran-
cis because of his development of
a flu vaccine procured from fer-
tile nens eggs.

The only flaw with it is, that
at the end of the experiment, the
device registered several people's
eyes as not being tired, but the
subjects claimed they were. The
inventor declared it was just their
imagination, but several of the
subjects suggested that the gadget
was having optical illusions.
Reading or Study
Michigan students queried about
the device were inclined to be
doubtful about its accuracy. "Even
if my eyes weren't tired after
reading that long, the rest of me
would be," asserted one lanky law
student, who seemed to be having
trouble finding a comfortable
reading position.
Others wondered if the gadget
made any distinction between cas-
ual scanning of pages and inten-
sive concentration, or what is
theoretically done just before
bluebooks. "I could read the fun-
nies all day without tiring my
eyes," several students comment-
ed.

IT DIDN'T GET AWAY-This 37-pound Kamloops Rainbow trout caught in ten feet of water in
Idaho's Lake Pend Oreille tops by a pound the previous world record for the largest trout Wes S.
Hamlet of Coeur d'Alnc, Ida., caught the finny m onster after writing the previous titleholder, Clin-
ton Shepherd, of Rathdrum, Ida., that he intended to beat his record. Here hamlet holds the prize
catch.

Their attitude toward vegetables
"differs just as does adults'," he
says, and "raw vegetables are of-
ten preferred.
Cereal is the food most often
refused and it may be safely omit-
ted from the diet."
Bakwin discusses ways and
means of dealing with cases of
1"poor appetite" in pre-school
youngsters in an article in the
Journal of Pediatrics. Parents
frequently complain about such a
situation, although sometimes they
themselves are at fault.
One of his hot tips to parents:
"There should be no insistence
on this or that food. The food
likes and dislikes of children
should be respected just as in ad-
ults."
