Propaganda for Prevention of Blindness.—The International Association for the Prevention of Blindness, Paris, France, has issued a journal entitled "L'animateur des temps nouveaux," under the editorship of M. Louis Forest. In this booklet are a number of terse statements on the value of eyesight, the manner in which the eyes work, the stresses that various types of work involve, and the risks from careless, dirty, and wilful habits which are often directly accountable for blindness. Each page deals with one subject, and each subject is illustrated by one or more sketches. Even the type has been made to serve a demonstrative purpose, making the chief points on the page stand out sharply. This journal is a most effective piece of propaganda, perhaps the best of its kind that we have seen. (From Brit. M. J.1: 159 [Jan. 22] 1932.)
