(New Army Practice 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 year.” 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 ditions.” Vision and Auditory CHS Students Get Tested By LELAND BOYD Battalion Staff Writer 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 cation. 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 children. 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 glasses. 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 fidence. Plans are to continue the pro gram, extending it into an annual practice.
