New glasses for sun and safety

While I was a patient in the Brooklyn Eye and Ear Hospital, New York, a 10-year-old boy was rushed into the emergency room with a very common form of injury. "Fencing" with a pair of sticks with another boy, he was jabbed in the eye by a thrust which shattered his spectacles and drove some of the glass fragments into the eyeball. This made a very tedious job for the doctors because glass, being nonmagnetic, is very hard to locate and remove from an eye. Whether or not the boy retains the use of his eye is still doubtful.

Minnesota's water wonderland

Every vacationist at some time pictures himself with a rustic log cabin and a blue lake for a front yard. In Minnesota, each year, many thousands make this dream a reality. Extroverts can find lakes where they will meet friendly people from other states. And the solitary minded, with a touch of Daniel Boone in their blood, can find camp sites that seem as remote as those of the French-Canadian voyagers.
