FRIDAY, JtJLY 22, I960 Releases Shorts About Illinois Public Schools ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH PAGE HVB By DOV K. Telegraph Correspondent RPU1NGFIKLD, HI. - State Srhool Superintendent George T. Wilkins, Edwardsvllle, has re- etisert what he calls "shorts" or "fillers" about Illinois public schools. They contain statistical information about bus transportation and caution teachers to have careful screening programs for correction and planning for children of low vision. "Often .partially spring children do not have an obvious handicap and they do not know that others see more clearly than they," said Wilkins "It is easy to overlook their visual defects and judge them as .slow learners, clumsy, inattentive or having behavior problems when the real problem is low vision. It is es- Rcnlifil to hiive screening and educational planning for them."
