the establishment of the Institute

defend the zoning ordinance also.

NE "footcandle" (the unit used to measure light) is the
amount of light cast on a screen by a candle one foot
away. Sunlight measures about 10,000 footcandles. Too
bright, perhaps, for comfortable reading but not bad at all
for playing golf. The intensity in the shade of the old apple
tree may be 1,000 footcandles or more. Ideal for reading.
Easy on the eyes. A great place for an afternoon of reading.
We enjoy sitting on the porch--a nice place to use our eyes
-with perhaps 500 footcandles.
We sit inside during the daytime, pull our chair close to the
window and think we have good light. Yes, it is reasonably
good-200 footcandles. Then at night, when many of us use
our eyes more than in the daytime for close vision, we blithely
turn on a 40-watt bulb in a bridge lamp and proceed to read
our newspapers under a lighting intensity of 3 to 5footcandles!
Here we are, doing close visual work with a hundred times
less light than we have in the shade of a tree-the ideal
intensity for reading.
The amount of light you need depends upon what you are
The larger the object, the easier for us to see it. Then there
is contrast. If you read a well printed book under, let us
say, 25 footcandles, and then pick up a newspaper wherein
the contrast of the type on the paper is not nearly so high,
how much light do you require? You require three times as
much light to read with the same ease. Sewing, the most
brutal visual task, generally deals with very small objects and
materials of very little contrast, and requires tremendously
high intensities if we are not to strain our eyes or consume
too much energy.
When you use your eyes for reading, sewing, studying, play.
ing games, writing, or other close visual work, there are cer-
tain minimum amounts of light you must have for proper
seeing conditions. These standards, developed by the Science
of Seeing, are based on thousands of actual experiments.
