  1. Except, of course, when the brightness of the pedestrian is so low that it may be considered zero. See Moon and Hunt, "Reflection Characteristics of Road Surfaces," J.F.I. 225, 1 (1938).
  2. A. C. Hardy, "A New Recording Spectrophotometer," J.O.S.A. 25, 305 (1935). Without the help of such instruments,the present investigation would have been hardly feasible. We wish to thank Messrs. S. Q. Duntley and N. F. Barnes, who obtained the reflection-factor curves, and Messrs. M. H. Borg, and J. J. Renner, who were of assistance in the latter part of the work. We also wish to acknowledge the help of the Cornwall Mills, Inc., and Charles Adler and Son, who donated some of the clothing samples.
