36 Gglesburg.Regtsfa^Mafl, Gal'teburg^...HI, Wednesday, June 13, 1?7| Blind Man Hears' Sights With Sensor KALAMAZOO, Mich. (UPI) [ --Charles LeRoy, blinded in a i missile explosion 12 years ago, * can "hear" sights today using ultrasonic sensors on his special glasses. LeRoy, 38, a student at Western Michigan University's Institute of Blind Rehabilitation, can identify trees, poles, walls and other objects from their special sounds. Stanley Sutcrko, assistant professor of special education at the institute, said Leroy should be able to locate and distinguish objects as far as 10 feet away with use of the sensors mounted over the nosepiece of his special glasses. "The limitation is probably the sensitivity of the individual's own sensory system, not the glasses," Suterko said. The sensors, expected to be marketed within a year, consist of a transmitter that sends out sound waves and two receivers, one for each ear. The sound waves transmitted by the sensors strike an object, bounce back and are picked up by the receivers, mounted on the glasses. The received sounds are subsequently fed back to the tiny receptors inserted in each ear. Suterko said the exact location of an object can be discovered by comparing the I 'I I Charles LeRoy ... he "hears" sights loudness of the tone in each ear. The lower the tone, the closer the object and if the tone is louder in the left ear, the object is in that direction. A tree reflects fewer sound waves than a metal pole, while a bush has less sound than a tree. Suterko said a trained individual could distinguish a rough-barked tree from a smooth-barked one. LeRoy, a San Antonio, Tex., resident, was blinded in 1961 by a missile explosion at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. He has been studying at Western Michigan since last August for a master's degree to teach the blind. LeRoy demonstrated his new sensors Tuesday along a busy residential street in Kalamazoo. Publisher Won't Turn Over Hughes File LAS VEGAS, Nev. (UPI) Newspaper publisher Hank Greenspun told the Internal Revenue Service Tuesday there is "no way" the government will get his private files on Howard Hughes, even if he goes to jail for his defiance. "I told them I had not produced the documents and I would not produce the documents," Greenspun said, emerging from a meeting with IRS agents that lasted less than an hour. The IRS subpoenaed his files on Hughes following a reference in the Senate Watergate bearings to confidential files in the safe of Greenspun, publisher of the Las Vegas Sun. Greenspun was ordered to appear at the local IRS office today and turn over his files on! Hughes, the mysterious billionaire who once lived in seclusion atop a hotel here and has millions of dollars invested in Nevada, to agents of the IRS Special Task Force, which carries out criminal investigations. He appeared, but brought no papers. "I stand firm on this," Greenspun said. "No way they will be able to get those papers from me. We will go to the Supreme Court if necessary. There is no question." He said he was ready to go to jail rather than relent "if that is the alternative. "We are protected by the 1st Amendment,"^ he said. "I believe the IRS always has taken the position that they are above the United States Constitution, and I believe our senators and congressmen have given them those rights. "Someone has to call them to account. I'm too small to do it, but maybe if the entire press rises up and says 'You cannot 'liave our records, you're not permitted to have them' ..." Greenspun said the IRS agents put him under oath and asked him several questions, but his attorneys objected to all of them on grounds they violated his constitutional guarantee of freedom of the press and Nevada laws protecting newsmen from being forced to reveal their sources. U.S. Attorney Devoe Heaton has 60 days in which to decide whether to continue action against Greeospun by taking the case to court. Convicted Watergate conspirator James W. McCord Jr. told the Senate Watergate Committee May 22 that coconspirator G. Gordon Liddy had talked about plans to break into Greenspun's office to get files believed to contain information damaging to Sen. Edmund Muskie of Maine, then a leading contender for the Democratic presidential nomination. Greenspun, after MdCordFs testimony, said the information on Muskie was "trifling," and not considered worth printing, but that the safe also contained important information about Hughes. The documents cover Hughes' political contributions, including orders in Hughes' own handwriting and the Hughes "game plan" for electing certain politicians, Greenspun said. Sears SALE!
