day condemned authors of a pam-
phlet being distributed in the 13th
On the surface, the pamphlet
urged Negro voters to support
Charles Diggs, a Negro Democrat,
who is running against Republican
Landon S. Knight. It was based
primarily on an appeal to Negroes
to support the Negro candidate.
Headed by Rt. Rev. Richard S.
Emrich, Episcopal Bishop of Mich-

said in a statement the pamphlet
"oversteps all bounds of decency."
The committee said: "The leaf-
let is released in the 13th District
in predpminantly white neighbor-
hoods and shows pictures of sev-
eral Negro candidates. The exam-
ination of this leaflet' makes it
obvious that some persons have
deliberately planted this piece of
un-American literature in an at-
tempt to use racial prejudice
against Democratic candidates."

OUR HIGHER MIND
By KATHY SEVERANCE
Neglect of children's visual er-
rors will show up in their posture,
manual dexterity, intelligence and
Because children don't know
what normal vision is, they don't
know what something is wrong
With their eyes.
Even in schools where visual
screening is used to test children's
eyes, according to the Better Vis-
ion Institute in New York City, a
really thorough analysis is not pro-
vided ... wise parents must watch
their children for signs of eye
Early school age children are
especially apt to strain their eyes,
which are still immature and vul-
nerable. School work, for them, is
of a near point of work type, and
a stAlin on young eyes.
Farsightedness is c o m m o n
among younger children because
their eyes are so short from front
to back that they don't bring light
rays to a focus on the retina.
Fortunately the child has the
ability to change the shape of his
eye's lens so that it performs the
focusing job. Still this is hard for
him, and long concentration on ex-
acting work is not good.
Reading books with large print,
held upright at a distance of 15
inches, and reading for short in-
tervals is the best way for chil-
dren to read, according to the Bet-
ter Vision Institute.
Other visual problems common
among children are nearsighted-
ness, which can be corrected by
proper glasses, crossed eyes, and
Regular Check Ups Advised
Regular eye check ups by a vis-
ual specialist are the best way to
prevent eye trouble. This should
be done at the age of three or four,
when the child enters school and
periodically after that.
The Better Vision Institute has
tricks for the middle aged person
as well, who needs more and more
light to see clearly.
By cupping his hand into a tiny
pinhole, and looking through it,
people over 40 years old can us-
ually distinguish phone numbers
in a dim liht.
Unfortunately this is a makeshift
emergency measure. Professional-
ly prescribed eyeglasses are the
only thing which can fill the daily
visual needs of such a person.
Help for Middle Aged
Trifocals are one answer, ac-
cording to many people 50 years
old with an average age of 56.3,
who have tried them so far.
These are continuous vision
lenses, which provide three zones
of seeing, the near, the middle
and the far.
Greatest enthusiasm about tri-
focals come from those whose oc-
cupations require unusual postures
or frequent changes in working
distance, such as shoe salesmen,
subway engineers, and factory ma-

Conflicting rumors showed the

Both MSC and University stu-

may also have received them.
Students at MSC claimed it took
three days to sweep the campus.
One student reported a return of

Levy said it was important that
the referendum be counted first
since, according to the Hare elec-
tion system, a different number of
votes would be necessary for elec-
tion to SGC than SL.
As of this morning 28 students
have taken petitions for the elec-
tions. Since there are 23 SL seats
open, petitioning has been extend-
ing to November 6 to increase the
number of candidates,

the uncertainty of the student
government issue, have expressed
varying viewpoints on whether
they will or will not run for one
or the other government plans.

Edwin von Boeventer, Grad., a

"teachers who are neither Protes-

against" in Germany because of
the existing educational system.
Since most schools are parochial,
he added, teachers who don't be-
long to one of the major faiths
can't get jobs.
Main speaker of the program,
Dr. Alfred Weber, staff member of
a Detroit hospital, also said that
separated schools increase the gap
between Protestant and Catholic
Dr. Weber declared the bridging
of the gap between religions is
one of the chief problems of Chan-
