Modern illumination in plants that under former standards were considered well lighted, has increased production as much as 25. But even modern lighting is not enough. Dust on bulbs, tubes and reflectors can waste half of it. That's why so many plant operators have regular crews to keep lighting equipment clean that's why they call in specialists to see how lighting can be improved in order to produce more, save the eyes of workers, reduce accidents. What is true of lighting is also true of all electrical equipment in factories, stores, homes.

They need extra care on your part. But they also need the expert eye of the electrical contractor, distributor, manufacturer or dealer to stop trouble before it happens. Don't take chances with electrical equipment that can't be replaced until the war is over. If you don't know whom to call, phone R1T. 7771 or Race 1731.
