A light detector also exists hat enables a blind switchboard perator to sense and find the lashing light of an incoming elephone call. These are just two of almost 00 devices that James Swail ms produced to help the blind n his 25 years with the National Research Council. Mr. Swail has been Wind ince the age of four. After graduating from McGill University with a science de- jree, he spent five years with he HRC developing special electronic equipment to aid his research. "BEARLY" FITS John Stous of Tarenlum, Pa., shot a black bear during Pennsyl- vania's bear-hunting season and then had the prcblem of transporling it home. He stow- ed it in the front of his compact car and headed home. Needless to say, said Staus, "it shook up a few oncoming motorists." Harold Clark heads Granum firemen GRANUM (HNS) The slate of officers for the Gran- um Fire Department is as fol- lows: Fire Chief Harold Clark; de- puty fire chief, Alan Munro; Net Earnings By THE CANADIAN PRESS Bank of Nova Scotia, year ended Oct. 31: 1971, 617, a share; 1970, Texas Gulf Sulphur Co., nine months ended Sept. 30: 63 cents a share; 1970, 'S The Shape of Things to Come The Unusual Happens in Clothing from McGuires... secretary treasurer, Don Douglas: and officer in charge of hose laying competitions, Alf Brisbj'. Members of the fire depart- ment will be conducting a fire protection program in tile near future. All residences and busi- nesses will be inspected. Members will hold regular meetings every second and third Thursday of each month. During January, February and March, the fire departmen will have training and genera interest films. The residents o Granum and district ere we come to attend. The three members who hav taken new positions In the de- partment are: captain in charg of pre-planning, Len Bailey captain, in charge of training Don Mason; and captain ii charge of fire prevention, Doi Douglas. He helps the blind His most recent and possibly his most important development is an ultrasonic obstacle detec- tor. Mr. Swail says he believes that the detector may be a bet- ter aid to navigation than the traditional white cane or the sceing-eye dog. He says both Uie cane and the dog can be- come "socially unacceptable" In some situations. MAY TRIP PERSONS For example, at a crowded party a cane mighl trip or touch persons while searching out ob- stacles, causing everyone em- barrassment. Dogs might also be a nuisance. The user of the obstacle det- ector can detect objects at three different seven and 15 feet. The operator alters the range control until there h no further Indication that an ob- stacle is near. The indicator Is rod that vibrates through a hole in tin d e v I c e 's handle and rubs against the forefinger of the op- erator. The device has been tested a! an Ottawa construction to ensure that its detector signal is not subject to outside Interfer- ence. Its power comes from built-in rechargeable batteries. The obstacle detector, how- ever, has limitations. Its bearo pulses 10 times a second and the operator may miss an ob- ject by scanning too quickly. Mr. Swail says he expects op- erators will have to take a short period of training to learn how to cope with such complications.
