The Argon laser is the latest development for photocoagu lation in eye diseases. The laser produces a high-\energy green light beam which can be fo cuses with pinpoint accuracy. The beam is absorbed by red blood and is particularly use ful in producing coagulation (clotting) of blood vessels in side the eye. Duke doctors say the Argon laser has proven to be usefill in the treatment of vascular diseases involving the eye, in cluding diabetes and certain tumors of the eye. Argon lasers currently are being uses in the treatment of eye diseases at Columbia Uni versity in New York and at Stanford University in Califor na. The one at Duke will be one of the first of its type in the southern United States. A check for $5,000, the first installment of the grant, has been presented to Duke President Terry Sanford by Robert G. Frye of Hickory, president of the N. C. Associa tion for the Blind. In the coming year, the association will make available more than SIOO,OOO in North Carolina for research and treat ment of eye diseases. This will include support of the N. C. Eye Bank, the N. C.

HAWKINS) While many national leaden would like for the average American to believe that the U. S. economy la being sta bilized, the pains of an econo mic depression are killing the average American. You do not have to be young or old, black or white, gifted or disadvantaged, etc., to be sensitive to the pain and frustration of unemployment. In fact, unemployment has reached a critical point in Orange County, an area that enjoyed considerable prosperi ty during the sixties. Further, it is not populated by large numbers of ethnic minorities; especially Black, Americans. Its' residents are getting a good taste of what it is like to be hungry and broke. The residents of Orange County have multiplied the area's public relief rolls two and three fold within the past year. They like many Ameri cans nationwide are learning the hard way that being on the relief rolls is not so bad after all and especially when one has no alternative. If survival is the priority it is hard to criticize public subsidiary. They might also recognize that not all persons on welfare wish to depend on it, nor do they prefer joblessness. Unfortunately, too few of the people who for the first time since the depression of the early thirties find them selves having to accept public welfare or other forms of gov ernment subsidy for survival will soon forget this tragic experience. Once on their feet again they will adopt the hard nose and conservative outlook. In fact, many even during the collapse of our national eco nomy see no relationship be tween the poverty that has his torically depressed black ghettos nationwide and the fact that a disproportionate number of blacks are on wel fare. They view this problem as due to the Black American's shiftlessness, laziness, animalis tic urges, etc., rather than white racism or a corroding U. S. economy. When the unemployment average reached 6% racial bigotry chauvinism and noth ing else will save Americans from being hit by at least some of the pain. Certainly if General Motors registers a sig ficant annual loss for the first time in over a decade, Ameri ca is in for loads of real heart ache and thousands of hungry folks. Let's not kid ourselves, a depression is not only staring at us, but hitting us hard in the pants. Furthermore, we are just beginning to feel the be ginning of a first round that has more tricks and blows than Mohammed All could possibly master. Even he will yield to its staggering blow. It is tragic that while un employment and a host of other staggering economic blows threaten the survival of the U. S. economy, our na tional leaders are preaching the virtues of patriotism, re stored puritanism and an illegi timate romance with repres sive law and order. Ironically, while they seek to seduce the warriors of new hope and quiet, they are aiding and abetting a level of do nothingness that win build a platform of poverty and fury on which we will all have to perform. It la from this plat form that we will aee emerge a degree of intolerance and bitterness that will destroy the iptrit and moral of even those who profees to have our na tion's beat interest at heart. No longer can national leadership ignore the tragedy of our nation's economy. No longer can they misdirect the attention of the general pub lic for political gain. Too many Americans are beginning to recognize that all is not good and that joblessness is rapidly becoming a common part of the American daily diet. Not only is this painful for the victim who is hit the hardest, the little guy in the street, but it gives him the courage to protest and demand a more responsible address to the pro blem. Further, he is in real pain and not interested in clinches and wild promises. I doubt that as he becomes more personally threatened by the depression that he will be as concerned about relating to yells for restored puritanism and law and order. In fact he will begin to realize that he has been taken on a real trip b> the pie in the sky artista. Bitterness will fill his heart while his pockets are empty. State School Receives Tax Exempt Status GREENSBORO A favor able ruling of tax exemption has been issued to a private school in the Greensboro Dis trict, whose application for exemption was pending July 10 when IRS announced its position on such schools. The school is the Fayetteville Aca demy in Fayetteville. The rulings were made un der the statement of position announced by the IRS on July 10 concerning the tax exempt status of private schools. In that statement the IRS said it could no longer legally justify allowing exempt status to pri vate schools which practice ra cial discrimination, nor would it allow gifts to such schools to be treated as charitable deduc tions for income tax purposes. The Fayetteville Academy's racially nondiscrimination ad missions policy has been pub licized in local newspapers.
