These are some of the messages received: ' President Eisenhower: "0 u r treeless is — and 'always has been — one of the strongest assets of our way of life. One reason the United'States has become a great nation is-that the American people have been well and truthfully informed of the tremendous news developments of our times by our newspapers' and broadcasters. Thus, our people have been able to make intelligent decisions on the . basis of facts. "A press association, such as the United Press, has an even larger role. By sending and receiving a steady stream of factual news from around the world, it performs the valuable service of participating in the general world knowledge of the truth and by so doing strengthens the free world and its peoples. "My sincere congratulations to the United Press as it celebrates its fiftieth anniversary."

McMahan revealed today that eye- testing, instruments manned by license bureau personnel will be used beginning July .1. to weed out motorists who can't see well enough to drive on Hoosier highways. . McMahan announced the testing procedure in a stiff new examining program ordered by the 1957 Legislature, at a news conference in Governor Handley's office. He said thousands of motorists now traveling Hoosier streets and highways will fail to pass the test and thus lose their bids to renew licenses. It will mean grounding motorists considered potential accident-makers. The eye-testing instruments, costing $215 each, will be installed In most license branches around the sta'te by' July 1, with the smaller branches adding the equipment within a month. 2 Per Cent Surveyed Fall The tests will show, McMahan said, whether a motorist seeking renewal of his license needs glasses in order to drive. They also will show, he added, whether a driver's eyes are so poor he cannot even hope to have his vision improved enough with for a GETSEAGLE AWARD Tommy Brown, 14 year old son o Mr/ and Mrs. Fred A.

By Aug. 1, the smaller branches will have the equipment in use. Cautious in Estimate McMahan was cautious in estimating the number of drivers who might lose their rights because of eyesight.
