A résumé of information being gathered through questionnaire sent out by N. E. A. Committee appointed at the Boston meeting of the Department of special education, 1910, "to study and report on the conservation of vision. This committee consists of an ophthalmologist, a psychologist, an illuminating engineer, a publisher, and a superintendent of schools. Its object is to study not only school conditions with reference to the use and abuse of vision, but other conditions. ... The committee has so far planned to investigate the following phases of the subject: 1. The physiology and pathology of vision. 2. Illumination, both natural and artificial. 3. Objects of vision, including books, writing tablets, blackboards, etc. 4. The psychology of vision, especially with reference to conduct. 5. The legal aspects of the problem of the conservation of vision with special reference to legislative regulations.

“This paper is ... a partial report of one member of the committee and is confined to one phase of the subject.

“A comprehensive questionnaire has been prepared and 3,000 copies sent to superintendents and principals of schools in the United States. ...

“Out of 736 answers ... 456, or 59 per cent, have the eyes of children examined periodically. ... Out of 504 answers, the following facts are de luced: 326, or 42 per cent, of the examinations were made by teachers; 138, or 17.7 per cent, of the examinations were made by physicians; 30, or 3.9 per cent, of the examinations were made by teachers, physicians, and ophthalmologists; 10, or 1.5 per cent, of the examinations were made by ophthalmologists and specialists."

Summary: " Firsi, light should be admitted to the schoolroom from the left of the pupils with a window space equal to not less than one-fifth of the floor surface." Second, a shiny suriace, whether the blackboard or printed page is injurious and should be avoided. “Third, the type used for printing school books should be large an i wear. Fourth, the amount of work requiring pencil or pen should be limitej.

Fifth, correction of the differences in refractive power of the two eyes should be discovered and promptly made by the wise of proper glasses.

Sirth, where the power of vision is limited it should be conserve l and developed by proper eyetraining, either by segregation or by the omission of certain subjects of study."
