New York Schools Make Rules
For Protecting the Eyes.
Statistics of the board of health
show that more than 33 per cent of
the pupils in the upper grades of
elementary schools suffer from ocu
lar defects, and that this percint
aire increases from grade to grade
through the schools. The conclu
sion is that such marked increase
in defects of vision is caused by the
amount of close work required by
thc prese?t curriculum, both in the
Schoolroom and at home.
With the view of putting in prac
tice the essential rules for the pres
ervation of good eyesight, the wo
men principals suggest that a label
?with . the following reminders
printed on it be pasted in all school
books and library books.
"Your eyes are are worth more
to you than any book,
.v "Safety and suceees in life depend
* on the eyes, therefore take care i.i
''Always hold your head up when
"Hold your book 14 inches from

"Never read with the sun shining
directly on your book.
"Don't face the light in reading
but have it come from behind o
over your left shoulder.
"Avoid books or papers printed
indistinctly or in small type.
"Rest your eyes every few mo
ments by looking away from the
"Bathe your eyes night and morn
ing with pure water."
These suggestions are wortl
keeping in mind by every one. It ii
a fact proved by systematic investi
tion that the great majority of street
accidents, resulting in all sorts ot
serious consequences from loss of
limb to loss of life itself, are due to
the defective eyesight of the person

We need diversification because
it is necessary, or at least conducive
