land Title Registration .
' Not Adapted to United States
Whenthefirst eEortsweremadeto adapt
the Torrens Plan of land title registration to
our American recording system, many per
i ; sons thought it would simplify titles. They
: believed that by its use a transaction in real
‘ property would become as simple and in
expensive as the purchase of an article of

. The basic reason for the failure of the
' Torrens Plan in the United States has been
that it does not fit into the system of record

Method Described to Test Lighfing
In Home: With Exposure Meier
If you have access to a photo
electric light meter, such as the
exposure meters used by many.
amateur photographers, you can‘
check the illumination in your‘
home to see if you're getting
enough light. .
Good lighting is an invaluable
way to protect your priceless pair
of eyes, according to Edwin L.
Rupport. head of the Environmen
tal Sanitation Section of the State
Health Department. Good light
is especially important, he said,
since today we sometimes “chain
our eyes down to small print
stitches and other exacting work
with only 1/1000 as much as out
door daylight.”
‘ The first step is to check the in'
struction manual to see that the
meter’s scale reads in foot candles.
The_rnost _popula'r meters do.
‘ “Place the meter wherever you
wish to check the illumination.”
Ruppert said “Turn the photo
electric cell toward the source of
normal light, and read the scale
The reading will be the number
of foot--candles of light”
The following standards have
been adopted by the State Health
Department for adequate illumin
ation: Rooms where fine detail
work is done, such as sewing or
drafting, should be illuminated by
‘at least 25 foot candles Reading
land general working areas. such
as the kitchen, should have at
\least 16 foot candles.
Rooms not used for studying
or detailed work require six foot
