Boom In Factory Lighting Fixtures By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP)-More light on the subject—both in factory and office—is giving a boost to an 80-year-old industry. Makers of commercial and industrial lighting fixtures and installations report sales to factories and offices this year will reach $300 million. That is more than five times better than the industry did just 14 years ago. Sales in 1947 were $60 million. Recommended light levels for office and plants have risen 33 per cent since 1947, according to the Illuminating Engineering So cicty, the technical voice for the industry. And the increased amount of light provided for office and factory workers has gone up-2,000- per cent since 1917. A leading reason is that work ers were found to do much better work and turn out more products or office ileins as the light level was increased. But there were two other hi;, reasons for the spurt since 1947 First, the fluorescent lighting fixture, introduced in the late 1930s, caught on rapidly in plant? and offices in the years immedi ately after World War II. The society says this fixture helpec create awareness of the useful ness of good lighting in worl areas. Second, the spurt in construe tion of office buildings and plant hat started in the late 1940s jpened wide markets to the light- ng industry. All this gladdens the makers of ixtures and the utilities that fur* rtish the juice for them. But there are some major problems, too. For one, as more light is being created, so is more heat. The increased heat from the extra lights an overburden air-conditioning systems, as architects and engineers will tell you. Engineers are working on the utilization of heat from the fixtures in the heating installations 'or buildings. Another solution proposed is dissipation of the heat From lighting fixtures into cooling towers. The second problem facing the industry is one of salesmanship. Although making big sales gains in recent years, fixture makers and installers contend that many factories and offices are still wel! below the standards set by mosl of the newer buildings. One maker of commercial ant industrial lighting equipment Day-Brite Lighting Inc., St. Louis Mo., says many of the older of fice buildings and plants stil have their original equipment while others aren't yet up to rec ommended levels. Officials of th firm say that the recommendec light level is 100 footcandles, and the national average is less than 35. A footcandle measures the light in one square foot given by one candle.

You'll have to iron them again yourself." "I hear the State Department is going to cut our embassy's liquor allowance again." "Why not let Ronald speak for our delegation today? He's got such a bad case of laryngitis the other side won't be able to tell what he's saying anyway." "We have to keep him. His father was a big contributor in the last election."

Doesn't Believe Soviet Boast Of Fastest Subs Doesn't Know He Stole Wh By FRED S. HOFFMAN WASHINGTON (AP) - "We don't believe it" was the reaction today of a top Navy antisubmarine warfare authority to a Soviet claim that the Soviet Union has the world's fastest fleet of nuclear submarines. The authority, who did not want to be quoted by name, said the Navy thinks the Soviets have a small fleet of nuclear submarines. But he added: "If they have a submarine up to the state of the Nautilus we'd be surprised." The Nautilus was the first nu- clear submarine. It was commissioned about seven years ago and the Navy since has evolved more advanced models. The U.S. fleet now has 14 nuclear attack submarines. A 15th will be commissioned shortly. Thirteen others are in various stages of construction. Also with the fleet is a nuclear submarine armed with 500-mile-range Regulus guided missiles. One authority estimated the Soviets are between seven and eight years behind the United States— in what he called a rudimentary state of the art. By HAROLD 0.

But they all knew George Samp just likes mules. With the new team, history is repeating itself in the area. With considerably more pride than he drove his first automobile in one of the district processions, Samp, with Mrs. Samp as a passenger, is appearing in parade with his span of mules. "She won't admit it," Samp says of his wife, "but I think she sort of missed the mules, too."

Main Defecting Chemist's Wife Leaves Him For Russia By HARRY UYTENHAAK AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP)—A defecting Soviet chemist and his wife separated perhaps forever Monday night after a war of fists and words involving airport poUce, the Soviet ambassador to the Netherlands and Premier Jan de Quay. Mrs. Alexei Golub flew home to Moscow, leaving her husband under Dutch protection awaiting asylum. At least one Soviet diplomat and one policeman nursed injuries. Soviet Ambassador Pan- teleimon K. Ponomarenko, minus a raincoat button from the brawl, threatened "far-reaching consequences" to the Dutch government. Climax of the day-long quarrel was the final airport meeting between Golub, 35, and his wife. Dutch public prosecutor J. G. de Zaaijer called it a human tragedy. In the presence of the Soviet ambassador and the public prosecutor, Mrs. Golub told her husband she had to think of her parents at home in the Soviet Union and was leaving without him. The couple has no children. De Zaaijer said he was convinced the woman had not been coerced. The Golubs arrived last week with a party of Soviet tourists. The husband, a balding, broad- shouldered man, was taken into custody after he walked out of their hotel Saturday night and an- Mayor Nominees In TV Debate NEW YORK (AP) — The two major party candidates for mayor borrow a page from last year's presidential election for a television debate tonight.

Then the candidates will be given one minute of rebuttal on each question. nounced he wanted asylum in the West. Mrs. Golub had accompanied her husband when he left his hotel but disappeared before the police arrived. Monday's arguments resulted from Dutch efforts to make certain the woman was returning home of her own free will. Ottawa Ford Dealers come through for '62!
