SANTA ANA DAILY REGISTER, TUESDAY EVENING. APRE 25, 1922 PAGEæVEN CARE OF THE EYES BY DR. ROY S. HORTON OPTOMETRIST Myopia (more commonly called near-slghted- nesB) is that refractive error of the eye prevalent when the raya of light entering the eye come to a focus before they reach the retina. •A blurred image is formed on the retina due to the fact that the eye does not posses sufficient focusing power, and as a consequence objects at a distance appear blurred. For this reason myopic eyes are known to the laity as near-sighted eyes. The one g*eat cause of myopia is long continued use of the eyes for small objects close at hand. The use of the eyes for close vision, calls for an effort on the pgrt of the small focusing muscles and the delicate mechanism of the eyes. Myopia is regarded as a hereditary condition. When a myopic patient is questioned, he can usually name some other members of his family as being similarly affected. What ever an ounce of prevention may be to the other members of the body, it certainly is worth «lany pounds of cure to the eye. This delicate organ will stand a great deal of strain and lots of abuse, but when once thrown off its balance it very rarely can be brought back to its original perfection of action and it becomes liable ever after to a return of disability of function, * Myopic children generally shun outdoor games for the reason that their playmates are beyond their range of vision, they therefore are more fond of Indoor work, such as reading and sewing, and indoor games. In all forms of refractive errors, but especially in myopia, complaints are often made of dark spots or floating bodies, which dance before the eyes and which are the sources of considerable annoyance and alarm to myopes. They are caused by shadows thrown upon the retina by very minute particles in the eye and this trouble is generally overcome with a pair of properly fitted glasses. • It Is not uncommon, and certainly not improper, to have the first teeth of children of four or five years of age filled instead of extracted; while the eyes, the most .ntellectual, the most apprehensive, and most discriminating of all organs receives scarcely a passing thought, much less an examination.

Emphasizing the strides taken by legal as well as other business affairs of Orange county, three departments of the superior c^urt were in session simultaneously Irere today. The situation marked the Initial appearance of ‘klepai'tment with Attorney Ben E. Tarver, Santa Ana, making his bow as superior Judge pro tern, * . Judge Tarver held court in the jury room of department 1, while .Judge Z. B. West conducted a trial In the court room. Judge R. Y. Williams at the same time was holding court in department 2. It was tbe first time that three departments had been conducted in the county. The “third department’’ was found necessary to relieve a congested condition of the court calendars. The deferred trial of P. M. Reidy’s suit against Clara Turton, of Garden Grove, found both regular departments of the court occupied. Tarver was appointed by the presiding judge. West, to ait on the bench in the case, when he was selected by stipulation of opposing counsel, Henry Harris, Ixis Angeles, for the plaintiff, and Bishop and Wellington, Santa Ana, for the defense, Seeks to Execute Note Reidy brought suit to compel Clara Turton to execute a note for $500 dated September 21, 1921, made payable within six months, and secured by a trust deed upon 134 acres of land located near West Orange. Reidy contends that the defendant, for value received, promised to execute such a note ard trust deed. The defendant, in answering the suit, made a general denial. Judge West was presiding over the trial of Fred Towner's suit against P. A. Halferty and Floyd D. Halferty. Towner brought an action to recover $1100, alelged to be due on a note, and for $89.36, claimed to be due for labor and material furnished the defendants. He also asked for interest on the sum of $i,100, together with $200 attorney fees. He was represented by Attorney Charles D. Swanner. The defendants allege, in their j answer, that the note was secured I by accounts, amounting to $1,500,1 I which they assigned to the plain- i tiff; and by clutch control appli-1 ances worth $1,183.40. This securfg ! has not been exhausted or accounted for, they maintain. They deny owing the $89.36 claim. Continue Land Row In department , the case of the Laguna Beach Sanitary district against the Laguna-Beach company and other defendants, which started yesterday, was still in progress. The plaintiff failed to finish presentation of its case yesterday.

PRAISED Arrangements for the play-off of the three cornered tie in the Orange baseball league were to be made this afternoon when officials from tier, Santa Ana and Fullgrton high schools met at Fullerton. Decision to meet at Fullerton was reached at, the monthly meeting of' the Orange County High School i Principals’ association at the local high school late yesterday. At the same meeting a resolution, requesting County Superintendent R. P. Mitchell to ask the board of su-! pervisors for funds to purchase edu-1 catlonal films to be used In further-1 ing visual education in the county, j was passed. These films, the reso-l lution said, would be for the permanent use of the county schools: and would be retained in the office of the county librarian. | Because the present laws prohibit j the formation of a union junior col-' lege district, the plan to consider the j establishment of one in this city, to: provide for southern Orange county, i was abandoned for the time. , Principal D. K. Hammond of thej local high school, who is also dean of the junior college, and who had been appointed to investigate, reported that, while the plan met with favor in many quarters, it was pn>-: hibited by law, and that consequent-' ly must be dropi)€d until an amendment made it possible.

This elaborate series of advertisements is being published solely for the purposa of making the public better acquainted w'ith the company’s methods of service. The campaign is not aimed at obtaining new business, as the telephone company states that, even without advertising, it has all the business it can handle. The advertising project is designed to make the public so well informed that it will get the maxim of efficiency and good from the telephone service, and make the great volume of business run more smoothly, Advertising men declare this series of advertisements to be virtually perfect from artistic, typographical and psychological standpoints,'and the company would regard the campaign as a good investment, even though not a single pc- tron were added to the list of telephone users.
