Two groups of individuals were compared on characteristics pertaining to sensory, motor and central processes, assumed to be necessary to efficiency in driving an automobile, to determine the degree of similarity between traits of 44 CCC enrollees and an unselected sample of 70 youths from the same age groups. The only significant differences found were: (1) CCC enrollees were shorter in stature and (2) less active than the .general population. (3) The vision of the CCC enrollees was also poorer and (4) they lacked experience with automobiles as compared with the average youth.
