The modern automobile is a
modified iron miiden of the Mid-
dle Ages, according to Dr. John;
Ivanoff, resident surgeon with the
department of orthopedic surgery.
Pointing out that injuries to the
head and neck cause more than
half the total number of traffic
deaths, Dr. Ivanoff called the
steering wheel and column lethal
weapons. All seats except te driv-
er's should face the rear and be
equipped with safety belts, he
added.
Dr. Ivanoff listed several ways
to stay alive in the "arsenal of
torture." He observed that, ac-
cording to statistics, the back seat
is twice as safe as the right front
seat. In-a collision, he advised pas-
sengers to press their hands again

CHUNG'S CALCULATOR:
Ancient Abacus Surpasses Machines

T

By PHYLLIS LIPSKY

-Daily-Dick Gaskill
YUN HOON CHUNG, '56E, MANIPULATES THE BEADS ON
HIS ABACUS.

Neither an ordinary person,
with pencil and paper in hand,
nor electronic calculators can add
a column of 30 nine-digit num-
bers in 55 seonds, according to
Yun Hoon Chung, '56E.
However Chung has done it on
an abacus and claims that experts
in his native Korea can do it even
faster. -*
HJS ABACUS consists of a small
rectangular-shaped frame with
vertical rows of beads that are
moved up and down as the man-
ipulator adds, subtracts, multiplies
or divides. Chung, who was speed
champion of his high school in
Korea, can multiply a seven digit
number by one of nine digits and
come up with the right answer in
21 seconds.
"I cannot say I can beat a
machine multiplying and divid-
ing," he said, "but I can beat
any machine adding and sub-
tracting."
Like the method of adding in
use currently in the UnitedStates,
the abacus is based on the deci-
mal system. It dates from ancient
times when it was used in coun-
tries all over the world, accord-
ing to Prof. Philip S. Jones of the
mathematics department.
A form of the abacus was used
in early Egypt and by the ancient
Greeks and Romans, he said. It
was known in Oriental countries
as well as in Asia Minor but we.
do not know whether either area
got it from the other, Prof. Jones
declared.
Korean schools today teach the
abacus method as well as the Ara-
bic number system to solve simple
arithmetic problems, Chung said.
It is also used in Korean banks
and in all business establishments.

partment of Agriculture in 1941.
