R, WILLIAMS Spectacles Invented in 13th Century Mean a Great Deal to Us Today „ generally the invention of spectacles . if credited to Salvino degli Armati. an Italian banker of the 13th century. > However, Inany people insist that he did not really invent them but that, as n banker, he took them over from some - rnedfeval glassmaker of Venice. Mag- ,i:iiywg lenses were .already known. and apparently it oc.curred to some- fcody to put two lenses together so that they could be held before the eyes. The famous traveler, Marco Polo, credits the Chinese with using spectacle lenes before 1260 A. D. These lenses were made put of rock crystal. Dr. W. H. Crisp points out that spec- -tacles are-among the greatest blessings of our scientific era. They have vastly prolonged the usefulness of the lives ' of most of us and they have brought happiness to innumerable'people whose eyes are anatomically unsuited to normal vision. According to this historian, the earliest known lens was made of rock crystal and was found in the ruins of Nineveh by Sir Henry Layarcl. For nearsighted people who require ^concave lenses, discovery of suitable lenses ca'm'e much later. There is an oil painting of Pope Leo who lived at the beginning of the 16th century and who was quite nearsighted. The painting shows him holding a single round concave glass in his hand. .Since that time lenses for Vision have improved tremendously. The modern lens takes care of all important aberrations of vision. Most people nowadays have learned to feel old-fashioned in a flat lens and the modern spectacle-maker curves the lenses in various ways. The national American habit of keeping abreast of the times makes us willing to pay whatever may be necessary in order to have eyeglasses that are not only helpful to vision, but which also havea fine appearance. . Lenses are now available which enable the person who wears them to see both near and far without straining the muscles of the neck. Som;e people still are prejudiced against the wearing of eyeglasses, but it is a prejudice which is disappearing rapidly not only because of education in common sense, but also because of the magnificent technical advances in the development of eyeglasses.

But ti\e quiet New Englander wanted no more of the most difficult office in the country. On Aug. 2, 1927, he set about to cut short the vc-ylec- tion campaign. He did it at his summer office in the Black Hills of South Dakota, issuing one of the briefest but most historic presidential statements of all time, "I do not choose to run for President in 1928." The President's announcement fell on newspapermen like 11 bombshell. At 11 o'clock he told them he would have a stalemenl at noon when he was to be inducted into tiie Sioux Indian tribe. Soon after he handed h» statement to hjs secretary, tolc' him to ,type 15 or 16 copies am bring the messages to him. He then personally cut them apart into thin slips and handed them out to reporters as they passed his desk. He refused additional comment. The public, however, refused fo believe the President. They placed every possible interpretation on the message until at last in_ a terse six sentences added to a "speech at the final» moment in December, Mr. Coolidge declared that he was not a candidate and that the "decision must be respected." So retired into public life one of the most legendary characters ever to reach ths White House. The "prosperity President" is shown here on a stamp of the new U. S. regular series, enlarged.
