These tests were ar- ranged by John J. Zaylskie, NDAC extension safety specialist, and sponsored by school systems and county extension agents. Of the 849 students screened, 625 were 14 years of age or under. Of these, 322 had normal vision and 30~ had subnormal vision. Two-hundred twenty-four s~tt. dents 15 years of age or over were screened. Of these, 141 had normal vision and 83 had aubnomal vision, based on school requirements. W~en based on ideal requirements for driving, 142 of these had normal vi s~on and 82 had subnormal vision, Vision screening had been done for several years in North Dakota. The North Dakota Automobile Clu~ sponsored it in the high school driver ~raining program, while ~he Extension Service at NDAC used it with 4-H groups and homemak- ers. Good vision cannot be overem- phasized as a means of preven4~ng accidents. "You can't avoid a poten tial accident if yeu can't see well enough to see the hazard," Zay~ Iskie explains. . #.ct men i0 Hear- Top Speakers Leonard J, Davis, Killdeer, presi- dent of the North Dakota Stock- men's Assn will call the 31st An- nual Convention to order Monday, June 13 at 10:00 a. m. in the Dick- inson.
