Hiwassee Dam and powerhouse. This plant is in a remote location and has relatively few visitors. The reception is correspondingly small. Its scheme of lighting may be noted. The round holes in the ceiling conceal "downlight" units which concentrate strong direct light on persons and objects from invisible sources. Background lighting is supplied from tubular units laid in coves along two sides of the room which throw light chiefly on the upper part of the walls and the light colored portion of the ceiling. Visible light fixtures are combined with air conditioning outlets and are decorative only. A large window along the left side of the room permits observation of the control room

Veteran Polish weather expert joins staff of Smithsonian Institution. Washington, D.C. March 14. With home, laboratory, and invaluable records of years presumably lost in the recent Polish War, Dr. Henryk Arctowski, of the University of Lvov, one of Poland's foremost scientists and former Antarctic explorer, has started at the Smithsonian Institution the monumental job of determining direct effects of changes in the Sun's radiation on weather conditions on Earth. Recognized in all countries as one of the greatest living authorities on world weather, Dr. Arctowski is continuing his studies in efforts to find relationships between solar conditions and rainfall, barometric pressure, etc., at various places on Earth. His earliest meteorlogical observation began as a young geologist on the Antarctic exploring ship Belgica in 1897-99. For release morning papers of March 18 - 40
