Lofusport, Indiana, Pharos-Trfbune Report Most Drivers Passing Vision Tests INDIANAPOLIS (UP) — Indiana's compulsory driver testing program was just three days old today, and at least one tester confessed that on the first day she was "more confused than the customers." The 1957 Legislature ordered all persons applying for license renewals to Indiana's take 194 an examination. auto license branches were given the job of doing the testing. . Motor Vehicles Commissioner Robert McMahan' reported some branch personnel were a little "scared" about procedures for administering the 10 multiple-choice questions and the eye tests given with the aid of new machines. Mrs. Opal Kyle, deputy manager at a Terre Haute license branch said branch workers were "kind of confused" on Monday—the first day of the program. "We were more confused than the customers," Mrs. Kyle said. Spot Check Made " But a spot check of branches around the state'showed the tests going rather majority of smoothly, the vast applicants passing, and only slight grumbling because of the inconvenience. One of the biggest stumbling blocks seemed to be the identification of highway signs. Applicants must identify various shapes of signs. Branches at Bloomington, Princeton, and Terre Haute, for example, said more persons failed oil that score than any other. Few persoas were failing the eye «xams, but some drivers wore told pared by the Motor Vehicles Bureau available at all license branches. Many applicants who fail the first time go home to study the manual, then return to pass the test on the second try. Made Even Easier McMahan planned to make it even easier. He said he will distribute a list of 75 questions and answers to newspapers, just like those appearing on the test, "only reworded a bit." "If they know the answers to every one they'll be Mahan promised. Mrs. Ruby Ryan, Bloomington manager, said there U one common mistake: "We find that people think that just because they've driven for 40 years that they know all the of .the 75 questions able to pass," Mc- She said there were few' complaints, but on.ce in a while a dis- runtled driver will "scribble his own comment" on the test paper. Women do just as well as men, the managers reported. In fact, Mrs. Ryan said of the "six to ten" persons who failed the written test in two days at her branch only one was a woman. "And she was in a hurry," Mrs. Hyan pointed out. 'Winamoc More than twenty sets of plans sr^ the construction of a new jail which is to be built on the county- owned lot south of the court house, have been given to prospective bidders.

A transaction was completed this Marie Miller said the 57 applicants At Gary, branch manager Mrs. only seven of _ the first day failed. Five of the seven failed the written, test, two the eye test. Manager James G. McDonald at Princeton reported about a 10 per cent failure—all on the written test. "If they've read the manual, they don't have McDonald said.
