MAR 1 1948
A floodlight of the type to be installed in Briggs Stadium, lair of the Detroit Tigers and soon to be the world's best lighted ball park, being tested in the indoor searchlight range of the General Electric Company's Illuminating Laboratory in Schenectady, N.Y.
Light-measuring instruments gather data at the other end of this 150-foot-long series of screens. When the 1,386-light Briggs installation is completed this summer, surpassing Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park the lights will provide an even illumination over the entire field about eight times brighter than that put out by the average home-reading lamp.
