r ision Test 'or Drivers BALTIMORE, Nov. ,ie first time, license examiners f the Department of Motor ve- icles are equipped to test whether litential drivers have the lateral ision they are required to have y law. The law requires a driver to have 40 degrees of vision. This means lat the driver should be able to pse out of the corner of his eye 70 Agrees from a point directly in ·ont of his nose. However, the field of vision had icyer been measured in applicants or driver's licenses until the de- lartment obtained, two new eye- isting devices last month. :est Field Of Vision With the addition of the devices ipwn as "vision telebinoculars," ..e number of degrees of the ap- licant's field of vision can be isted by swinging a white ball on . metal arm behind his head until ie can see it out of the corner of lis eye. Then the number of de- ;rees is read from an angle com- mtor. The old lettered eye chart nas w jen replaced by a single card with - small letters printed at the sop, road signs in the middle and color patterns at the bottom sighted ihrough what looks like an old- lashioned stereopticon. Approximately 70 per cent of the persons tested will be able to pass this initial card, according to j. Rouse Story, supervising license examiner. How Card Works If they can read the top letters |p the cards, it indicates they have ; visual acuity of 20/30 or better. If they can read the road signs, it will tell the examiner that they are not illiterate, and reading the numerals m the color patterns will pass them on their ability to distinguish red. green and amber. An applicant who flunks the first card is then shown a picture of a railroad tunnel with little white signs suspended through it. Each · of these signs looks like the five lof diamonds tilted and one of the ||iamonds has a little black dot in ^t. The signs grow smaller anc smaller as they reach back into the tunnel and enable the tester to discover just what vision acuity the applicant has when he fails to select the tiny diamond with the dot. Vision of at least 20/70 in each eye with glasses is necessary for a license, Mr. Story pointed out. Persons who fail the initial card are also tested on vertical balance (horizontal line bisecting a red ball), lateral balance (arrow polnt- ng upward at numbers with 9-10 normal), focus of the eyes (three balls in a row is normal, if you see our or two you're out), and depth jerception where a single symbol n a row seems to stand out more ;han others. In addition to the new eye testing machines, other innovations under the Republican commissioner, Thomas B R. Mudd. have included changing the old oral test on traffic regulations to a written one; prohibiting the use of dual-control cars in taking driving tests and making the examiners in driving tests take applicants in orderly rotation to avoid pre-arranged favoritism. Some criticism had been heard within the department that certain driver-training schools were relying heavily on certain examiners to pass their students. Commissioner Mudd set up the rotation under a senior examiner who makes assignments to still any such criticism. Threatened Strike On All-American Postponed WASHINGTON, Nov. 29 yPl--A threatened strike of All-American Airways pilots was indefinitely postponed today and a spokesman for the National Mediation Board said prospects for a settlement appeared "definitely encouraging." Representatives of the pilots, after agreeing--at the Government's request--to call off the strike they had scheduled to start at midnight, continued negotiations with company officials and the mediation board. The conferees included Board Chairman Leverett Edwards, and Presidents Robert M. Love of All- American and Clarence N. Sayen of the AFL Airline Pilots Association. The pilots, including co-pilots, seek increased monthly salaries and, a new contract to replace the one that expired last January About 90 pilots are involved The company said it has offered to increase salaries by 12 M: per cent. On this basis, the company said pilots that are now making an average of $773 a month would receive increases to make the average pay S883. Co-pilots, under the same percentage raise, the company said, would jump from $325 average to $360. The co-pilots contend they are now getting an average of $275 a month and pilots, or captains. $650 Know America 'oday'd AnnlverMrl«« 729--Samuel Seabury.

There is a spicy character t h a t may come to the top. There is fair chance of success in life. New Type Jet Plane Shrouded In Secrecy WASHINGTON. Nov. 29 ;?)
