Gets Baseball Fans
No precedent was set when the
entire “bullring” punishment detail
of March 24 was taken to see the
baseball game between A&M and
SMU, according to Lt. Col. Taylor
Wilkins, assistant commandant.
“We had become disappointed
with the number of students at
tending the games,” said Col. Wil
kins, “and we decided to wake up
at least 400 members of the corps
to the fact that we had a baseball
team that won the conference last
After some seniors in the corps
suggested the move, it was dis
cussed by Col. Wilkins, Corps Com
mander Larry Kennedy, and com
manders of both wings and both
regiments. They decided to “sVmw
the baseball team that we are be
hind them.”
* CONSOLIDATED EYE TESTS — Telebinocular tests, to
find sight defects, were given to Consolidated students in
the third through the twelfth grades. The tests were part
of a program for physical education students taking tests
and measurements (PE-425). Student Alfred Ogletree is
showing testing a unidentified Consolidated student.
“We won the game, 1-0, and
tumouts have been better since
then, we think,” Col. Wilkins said.
“However, it was a ‘one shot’ af
fair, and didn’t establish any tra
Vision and Auditory
CHS Students Get Tested

Results of vision and auditory
tests conducted at A&M Consoli
dated during March, by 13 stu
dents of the Physical Education’s
class in Tests and Measurements,
have been announced by Dr. C. W.
Landiss, pi’ofessor of physical edu
The vision tests were given to
students from the third through
the twelfth grades. Due to diffi
culty in" auditory testing the third
and fourth grades only were given
hearing tests.
As a follow-up to the tests, 73
students were referred to the Moms
and Dads Club who took responsi
bility for contacting parents of the
Of these 73 students, 19 have
now obtained glasses and an addi-
tionaf eight students were found to
have non-corrective sight defects.
Teachers were notified about stu
dents whose eyesight is non-correc
tive so better seating anangements
could be made.
In administering the hearing
tests, the group found that 61 stu
dents out of 240 third and fourth
graders had defects at the time
testing was done.
No referrals were made after the
hearings tests, because persons re
cuperating from a cold or some
other sickness may show side ef
fects of the condition through a
hearing difficulty, Landiss said.
In the vision tests the Smellen
Chart was used first. Students
with less than 20-40 vision in either
eye were referred to the Moms and
Dads Club. Borderline cases were
given Telebinocular tests, and
screened for students needing
Hearing tests given were Pure
Audiometer Tests.
Landiss pointed out benefits of
the tests, telling of a special case
discovered by the group.
A young student was found to
have vision scores of 20-100 in his
left eye, as compared to normal
vision for his right eye. But the
poor sight of the student’s left eye
would soon have seriously affected
vision in the right eye had it not
been called to attention, according
to Landiss.
The tests were made by 13 sen
ior physical education students as
part of a program designed to give
them practical experience and con
