Miss Gyrene Hard- ians How Eye Glasses and Specs Originated. The history of optometry was related to the members of the Kiwanis club at their weekly luncheon Friday i oon, by Dr. Caryl C. Hill. He said that optometry dates back to the 13th j century when the first glasses were ' made by Salvino d’Armato, an Italian. He said that the first lenses were placed in rims of iron, gold and silver ! and that in the 16th century in France, Italy and Germany there were socalled spectacle guilds. He said ! that the Chinese claimed priority mi the manufacture of eye glasses and i that they have proofs to show that I spectacles were manufactured in j China as far back as f«>ur centuries j ago. John McAlister, he said, was the first American optician. He said that! he was a member of a Philadelphia j family and lived during the revolu- times. He said the fourth j generation was still in the optical i business in Philadelphia. He said j Benjamin Franklin invented the first bifocal glasses. Thomas Young, in 1S01, invented the astigmatism lens and in 1S27 professor Airy corrected, this lens to apply to all eyes, said the I speaker. Zelman Silent Iiooster. J. W. Kirkpatrick presided at the luncheon and named Joe Zelman as the silent booster. Mr. Zelman presented each of the members with a ] leather match case. Mr. Zelman also won the attendance prize, an American flag, presented by E. G. Perry. During the luncheon Dr. Hill ex- I nibited a pair of spectacles, 200 year.? old, which had been made in Wies- ; baden, Germany, he said. The rims were hand forged.
