Children Cry FOR FLETCHER’S CASTORIA Where is Your McKee? IF the cop says “Stop!” it may be too late to wish you had obeyed the law. Your headlights must not throw a single blinding ray of light above 60 inches from the ground. The fact that you thought your lights were O. K. is no excuse. It’s up to you to be sure. The scientifically designed prisms give 63% more light than a plain window glass lens and project this light below the 42 -inch deadline, 600 feet ahead of the car. The concave-convex shape gives a very strong side light that illuminates ditches, banks and beyond curves. Why risk your life and those of others with makeshift devices that weaken the light in order to comply with the law? For safety’s sake use the McKee — the lens that combines an intense road beam with an adequate side-light. Now is the time to equip your car with the McKee Lens—the lens that protects you from the law and prevents accidents. Extract from law in effect April 15th No motor vehicle . . . shall be operated . . . between the hours ol 30 minutes after sunset and 30 minutes before sunrise unless the headlights ... are constructed and operated as follows . . . No bulb or lamp used . . . shall be of greater candle power than 24 (or equivalent wattage) ... no direct or reflected ray from said light shall be, on a level road and seventv-five (73) feet ahead of any such motor vehicle, more than forty-two (42) inches from the ground. No headlight except such as has been sand blasted or frosted shall be used on any motor vehicle unless the type of such lenses has been approved by certificate issued by the Public Utilities Commission.
