Argus Recreation Club And Company Purchase Honor Rolls
Two honor rolls containing the name of former employees of International In dustries who are in.
the armed service o our country were put up in the two plants. The one in the old plant was placed
near the lunch room and the one for the new plant is located near the lunch room and the one for the
new plant is located near the side entrance There were ninety-eight names on the roll when the
picture was taken, bu those who left in the last two groups have not been added as yet. A few names
were placed on in error and a few were missed, but . these mistakes were not intentional and are
being correctec as f ast as they are brought to the attention of the Argus Club. Anyone who knows of
a former employee in the service whose name is nc on the roll is requested to leave the employee's
name at the guard's desk. Any new addresses or change of addresses should also be turned in so that
a copy of Argus Eyes may be sent to each employee who has left for the armed forces The honor rolls
are a good example of the cooperation between the company and its employees since the head pieces
were purchased by international Industries and the name plates were bought by the Argus Recreation
Club. The plaques were purchased from the Walter E. Kutch Company of Detroit and are made of molded
plastic, a material not essential to the war effort.
Melvin Bahnmiller Gets Promotion
After a short stay in "blitzed" England, where he was credited with downing two
Germán planes, "Mei" Bahnmiller was transferred with his crew and plane to
África. They were there at the beginning of the African campaign and they want to be there to
see the finish of the Axis armies. "Mei" is showing his fighting ability there as he did
in England. So far he shares the glory of shooting down two of the enemy's planes with another
gunner. These victories carne while on a raid over Bizerte, a Germán held port in Tunisia on
the Mediterranean coast. Since arriving in África, he has been advanced in rank from a
sergeant to a staff sergeant. Nice going, Mei! Keep it up and you will be a general before long.
"Mei" and his fellow crewmen fly in a Flying Fortress which they named "The Arkansas
Traveler." They also have a motto which they are living up to in regard to the enemy. It is,
"Do unto others before they do unto you."
New Value Standard Set For Rationing
The Office oí Price Administration, in charge of rationing, ad vises that red, white and
blue War Ration Book No. 2 will soon be in effect, supplying the public with a new valué
measure. Both actual cash and one or more red or blue coupons must be exchanged for the article
purchased. Coupons will range in four values, one. two, four and eight points. The sum of these
values wili include everything f rom one to sixteen with the exception of twelve or four. Those
exceptions and values over fifteen may be reached by the use of two sets of coupons. For example,
the vaiue of four may be obtained by combining two two-point coupons, twelve by using an eight-point
and two two-point coupons, and sixteen or J more by the combination two j points with the addition
of those necessary smaller values. The general advice is to use larger point coupons whenever
possible, thus saving smaller values for purchasing toward the end of rationing periods. This will
avoid the handicap of having only large point coupons when the necessity of small values are needed
for those articles desired.

Victory Book Campaign Ends March 5th, 1943
The 1943 Victory Book campaign to collect good books of an outstanding nature for the men in the
service is now under way on a national basis and will end March 5, 1943. Sponsored by the American
Library Association, the Red Cross and the USO, its aim is to collect millions of books that are
first rate in contents and physical appearance. It should be borne in mind that this is not a scrap
drive and books should not be given unless they are of a type that you yourself would like to read
if you were in the service. The reading habits of the men in the armed forces cover quite a bit of
territory, and books of humor, both fiction and verse, books of cartoons, mysteries, textbooks and
technical books published in 1935 or later, travel books and adventure stories are particularly in
demand. There are certainly many employees here at International Industries who belong to the
Book-of-the-Month Club who have sorne fine books on their shelves at home. It may be some sacrifice
on your part to dónate these, but in order to secure the types of books wanted, some
sacrifice will have to be made. Make it a point to dónate the books that you want to keep
yourself. A large box will be placed near the lunch counter and when a quantity of books has been
left there, they will be taken by the local committee in charge of the book campaign. Let's try to
fill it not once but several times.
Women And Machines
Exemplifying the job of training war workers, the National Safety Council has produced a film,
"Women and Machines." Designed chiefly to stress the importance of safeguards against
industrial accidents, one of the first factors shown is the recommended uniform, which includes
overalls, a dress, or slacks and shirt. The omission of junk jewelry is advised and the use of a
turban, cap or hairnet is recommended as preventatives against entangling alliances with gears and
moving machinery. Shoes with low heels are stressed for comfort and surefootedness. Equally
important are the worker's habits as well as dress. A sensible diet is advised for health as well as
safety, thus avoiding nervousness and fatigue. Recommended, too, are creams for the skin as a
protection against grease and other irritations, and goggles, as an eye safeguard, are in many cases
a necessity. One of the most important factors stressed by the Safety Council is medical treatment
for the slightest bruise or scratch. The use of first-aid for minor ailments will, in many
instances, avoid possible serious complications later. Loss of hours or days due to accidents will
lend aid to the Axis. The common sense safety rule should prevail in all war plants in order to
afford a faster victory.
Valentine's Day Comes Again
The unusually expansive flow of comic Valentines into the various departments has most of the
recipients stumped. Bill Thompson's was so appropriate he's decided to frame it and hang it above
his desk. All those receiving the "jolly" pamphlets have come to the conclusión,
after a series of deductions, that it was the work of one Kirk Fisher. He, however, professes no
knowledge of the matter. When approached on the same subject, Al Clavelli also denied the
distributtion, but looked very much like the proverbial cat who swallowed the canary. Any
conclusions as to who the culprit may be are your own. She: "My sin is vanity. I spend hours
admiring my good looks." He: "That's not vanity, that's imagination."
Argus Eyes For Victory
This paper is an employees' publication. lts aims are: 1. To present news of individuals
throughout the two plants. 2. To keep former employees now in the service informed as to what is
going on at International Industries. 3. To present up-to-date information on all problems vital to
employees which the war has brought about. 4. To give all employees an opportunity to express
themselves. No items will be used which will tend to ridicule or embarrass anyone. Humor and
good-natured fun, however, are always acceptable. EDITORIAL STAFF Editors . . . Maurice Doll, Jeanne

"from The Editor's Desk"
Harold Kroll has left the employ of the company and will go home for a short rest before going
into the army. While with International Industries, Harold was instrumental in launching the
"Argus Eyes" and in the position of editor did a fine job of putting out the first issues
of the paper. We are sure that we will miss his capable direction as each issue of the paper goes to
press, but we will strive to carry on and to make each issue an improvement over the last. Good
luck, Hal. Help Wanted As soon as we found out that we inherited the task of getting out the
"Argus Eyes for Victory," we made a survey of past issues and found out that most of the
material has been submitted by five or six persons. Since the "Argus Eyes" is not a house
organ but a club paper, its success depends upon each department in each plant turning in items so
that it will be represented in the pages of the paper. If you feel that some other department gets
too much space in the paper, it's your own fault. If you feel that you can't write up any news that
you know of, turn in the bare facts and we'll write it up. We would especially like pictures of
employees' children. We may not be able to run all that we receive in one issue, but we would like
to have them turned in so that we can use sorne in each paper. We also need more small items of
what's going on day by day. Give us a hand.
Clyde Logan Feted On Birthday
At noon on February 4th, the twenty members of the Inspection Department in Plant 2 put on a
surprise birthday luncheon for their new chief, Clyde Logan. It was a real surprise, for he was
quite speechless for once. The luncheon consisted of sandwiches, a beautiful white birthday cake
presented by Agnes Thurston, a delicious chocolate layer cake baked by Maurine McDaniel our
"Sweetheart of Texas" and two kinds of ice cream. Mr. Logan was then presented with a
beautiful tan leather billfold, with his name in gold inside. The party broke up in a cloud of smoke
when Perini joined in and handed out a few "El Ropos." Many happy returns of the day, Mr.
Personnel Office Fingerprints New Argus Employees
Every time International Industries employs a man or woman, he or she is fingerprinted before
starting to work. It's more or less of a small initiation on the part of the Personnel Department,
and you'd be surprised how some individuáis react to it. It is necessary that each employee
be fingerprinted three times, since Washington, D. C, Lansing State Pólice, and the Ann Arbor
Pólice keep your fingerprints on file with thousands of others. Those who have already been
fingerprinted have probably noticed that it's not the tip of your finger that counts.
It's the exact middle of the finger where each line has a course of its own. The person who is
being fingerprinted stands in back and a little to the right of the fingerprinter. The right hand is
f printed first, starting with the thumb and rolling it from right to left. The same is done with
the left hand, only each finger is rolled from left to right. After each finger is individually
printed, all four fingers are taken simultaneously, and each thumb taken again; only this time the
fingers and thumb are not rolled but merely pressed against the paper. After this process has been
repeated three times,, the new employee feels as though he has become a member of International

When driving through the countryside, Hitler's car ran over and killed a small dog. Halting the
car, der fuehrer sent his chauffeur to the farmhouse to express regret. The driver came back a few
minutes later with a big package under his arm.
"The farmer was not angry," he assured der fuehrer. "What did you say to
him?" insisted Hitler. "When I went to the door," the driver explained, "I
saluted and said, 'Heil Hitler, the dog is dead.' The farmer yelled 'Hooray,' and gave me a big
ham." - The American Legión Magazine.
Addresses Of Servicemen Censored
Beginning with this issue, you will notice that the addresses of former Argus employees in
service have been discontinued. Although we have not at yet been requested by the War Department to
do this, we understand that most publication have already been told to do this and we feit that it
would be advisable to omit the addresses before we were informed to do it. You are urged to continue
writing to men in service that you know personally but not to write to any soldier that you are not
personally acquainted with, because, according to Secretary of War Stimson, correspondence clubs are
still used as a method of espionage. Although the major ity of letters to men in service from
unknown writers may be entirely innocent, it places a heavy burden on the government's protective
services. We will still keep an up-to-date file of addresses and anyone desiring to write some
friend in the armed forces is advised to cali or write Naomi Knight of the Argus club and she will
pass the address on. We will continue to run an honor roll of the men in service.
We all had a big surprise when Eva Colé carne back to work after a two-day leave of
absence. She is wearing two rings on her left hand and now signs her name Mrs. Paul Gentry. Paul is
a Corporal in the United States Army and is stationed at Fort Brady, near Sault Ste. Marie,
Michigan. They were married in Ann Arbor on January 14th while Corp. Gentry was on furlough.
Congratulations and the best of luck to both!

Argus Mid-season Bowling Party Proves Great Success
January 16, 1943, marked the night of much merriment for all of the Argus Men Bowlers. Lee Thomas
put on a first class turkey dinner with all the trimmings, including shrimp cocktail, which it seems
(Wolf Harding and Les Schwanbeck could not leave alone. They probably ate two-thirds of it. The late

in order for the evening. Big winners, it has been heard through the grapevine, were Swede Carlstrom
and Rube Egeler. We hope Laura will not read this. Scotchman Girvan was on hand with his usual two
rolls of pennies. It seems that Roy Hiscock was on his knees that night, although his back was in
pretty good shape. Gene Shcumann was on hand with his accordion and above all the noise, I am sure
the boys all enjoyed his music. The boys not on hand missed a good time and we wish to thank Lee
Thomas and his group for the dinner and also to thank Roy Hiscock for the effort he put into this
affair. Your writer wonders if he should let slip mention of the f act that the Argus . All-Stars

No Rest For The Repair Men
"Jonathan Jo has a mouth like an "O" And a wheelbarrow juli of surprises. If you
ask. for a bat, or something like tbat, He'll make it, whatever the size is." A. A. Milne.
Except for the personal reference, this little verse of Mr. Milne's describes to a "T" the
work of our maintenance department. If you see someone fixing a pipe, building a partition or
shoveling snow, the odds are ten to one that it's one of Ed Sleezer's men carrying out one of the
many routine duties that fall under the maintenance department. The work of this división
goes on without respite around the clock. Electrical work, carpentry, cleaning, heating, plumbing
and any kind of work that comes under the heading of keeping the building and equipment in tip-top
shape is Ed's responsibility. In the summer the heating equipment must be gone over to make it ready
for the 300 to 350 tons of coal that is fed into the boiler annually. John Steinke takes care of all
electrical work. John is at present on sick leave, but is expected back on the job soon. The
plumbing work is taken care of by Rollie Snyder and Oswald Hoeft. They keep the network of water,
steam and air pipes in good working order. Bill Beard does the mechanical repair work in the plant.
He keeps the machinery rolling and whenever his name is called on the public address system you j
can make up your mind that a motor has burned out or that a lathe has broken down. He operates on
the theory of "keep it running. If you can't buy a part, make it." The cleaning work goes
on day and night. Mrs. Wrathell and Mrs. Schlimmer make the rounds during the day. At night, when
most of the employees have left, Mrs. Hintz, Mr. Michelfelder
and Fred Splitt take over. Bill Dixon bales up the tons of paper that is discarded and helps with
the odds and ends of cleaning work. Then there are the "gadgeteers," Miller, Cope and
Fisher. They work under Bill Thompson, but they do their work in Sleezer's department, so it's up to
him to see that they don't cut off any I ñngers. They manufacture the devices that are used
in connection with the work simplification program that is going on in the plant. In the ten years
that Ed Sleezer has been with the company he has been called upon to build everything from a pencil
box to suite of offices. He even has to replace the heels on the girls' shoes when they fall off. Ed
worked in this same building when the oíd Michigan Furniture Company occupied it in 1910.
Employees may come and go, but Ed stays on and, in his words, "You never know what'll be needed
next. It may be an addition to the building or someone may want a chair lowered because it's too
high for the desk."

Death On The Job
Without a shot from the enemy, 20,000 war workers will die this year, victims of accidental
deaths in shops. Hitler just smiles. Death is on two fronts - battle and production. The soldier
killed in battle dies for his country, but the accidental death of an industrial worker accomplishes
no purpose except consolation to the enemy. Death continually strides through our war plants.
Twenty-five per cent of the accidents occur during the handling of components and other objects.
Twenty per cent are concemed with rnachinery that is in operation. Nearly ten per cent occur in the
using of hand tools. A like amount are caused by falling objects. Over four per cent result from
falls. More than 200,000 soldiers could have been supplied with war equipment which might have been
produced if it were not for the time lost through accidents last year. This lost battalion of war
workers feil one by one, mostly as a result of carelessness or inefficiency. Some were killed,
others were injured. The worker who, through accident, isn't on the job next month to make the
material we need to win the war may be you. Accidents must be kept under control if we are to win
the battle of production. It's your duty as an American to protect yourself and others. Time lost
from production must be sharply reduced. It takes this to win! - Springfield Armory News.

Can't write a thing, The Censor 's to blame; Just say that I'm well, And sign my name. Can't teil

Can't say where we're going, Don't know where we'll land; Couldn't inform you If met by a band.
Can't mention the weather, Can't say if there's rain; All military secrets Must secret remain. Can't
have a flashlight To guide me at night; Can't smoke out of sight, Can't keep a diary, For such is a
sin, Can't keep the envelopes Your letters come in. Can't say for sure, folks, Just what I can
write. So ril close with letter, And to all a good night!" Unless the present trend of industry
accidents is checked, 52,000 workers will be killed by the end of 1943, another 4,168,000 injured.

Income Tax Blues
Shrimp musí have been figuring his income lax report to make him look like this. I don't
ihink we will look any better when we get ihrough, though, do you?
The following article has been making the rounds of the plant. We tried to trace it to its source
but could only find out that it probably came from another plant. - All resemblance to places, or
persons living or dead is purely coincidental. Inler-Deparlmenial Memo: TO ALL EMPLOYEES: Order and
Stores representatives and Production Departments of day and night shifts. SUBJECT: Purchase orders.
E. O. Approved by: P. S. V. per SS. There seems to be some confusión in the minds of many of
our employees as to the methods this company uses in the purchase of various parts and pieces
supposed to be attached to motors. The purpose of this memo is to clarify the simple procedure we
follow. To illustrate our methods, we will use a simple hypothetical example.
Suppose our company completes the fabrication of a motor. Just as we are about to push it out of
the door, a workman discovers that the Engineering Department in designing the motor failed to
provide two nuts to hold the nameplate in place. He notifies the leader, the leader notifies the
foreman, who calis in the department clerk, who issues a shop order (S. O.). This shop order is
issued in quadruplicate. One copy goes to our General Manager, one to the shop and one to the
production department. The other copy is thrown away. Now we have a shop order! After traveling
about the plant for a day or two, the shop order arrivés at the Production Department. To it,
however, have been attached various papers including 16 blueprints and an order card. The order card
is of no special importance and can be ignored in the discussion, lts principal use is to have
something to pin to the shop order blueprints while in transit. These papers arrive at Order and
Stores Section in the 8 a. m. mail at 9:30 in the morning. Promptly at 11:15 the same morning 17
engineering orders No. 4838292 arrive. By adding the last five numbers together, we know at a glance
that these are 17 engineering orders and should be attached to the 16 blueprints on the nut order.
What happens is, that after the shop order was issued someone discovered the only tooi available at
the assembly floor for applying the nuts was a hexagon wrench, a situation not provided for in the
blueprints. We are ready to get bids. Bid requests are sent out to three nut factories in accordance
with government regulations. Only one bid comes back so we decide to order the nuts from the
National Machine Production Company. The next step is to issue the actual purchase order. This
operation is started by a group of persons in the O & S Department, who, working together,
produce a paper known as a "Requisition." On this paper, the writers place various marks,
signs and blind figures. This is done by passing the paper back and forth until it is filled up. The
requisition is then turned over to the hectowriter who types a master copy of the actual purchase
order. This is done by simply copying the date shown on the Req. and then adding various quotations,
phrases, paragraphs, priority ratings, terms, in fact almost anything. A quotation from the Bible
usually goes over big. The master copy of O. O. is then turned over to Mary who discovers 67 errors.
She sends it back for correction. 49 of the errors are corrected, 18 missed and 7 new errors made in
making the correction. The purchase order is now ready for the ditto machine. On this machine 382
copies of the order are produced. The first sheet through is usually spoiled and is known as the
first copy. Along with a rule book and 17 acknowledgments, this is sent to the vendor, the Navy.
Marines. Gen. Pershing, Hitler, the FBI, our supervisor, his secretary, her boy friend, and not
forgetting the War Production Board. Sixteen copies are filed in various files scattered around in
our office. The purpose of this is obvious. Suppose you want to find a copy of an old order. Instead
of having to ask for it, or to determine just which file it is in, you must run around in a circle.
The first file you fall over, just pull open a drawer and - there it is! Forty-one copies of the P.
O. go to a small group of men known as expeditors. These are furtive looking fellows who i
occasionally sneak in and out of the office. The head expeditor has a very interesting job. Using a
large map and a ! bunch of pins. he plays a game called "coordination." By sticking pins
in various places on the map, he knows just where every expeditor is located right now. As long as
he does this successfully,
he wins. Whenever he loses a pin or an expeditor, he loses that rubber. As soon as the expeditors
get wind of the fact that a new P. O. has been placed and issued, they fly into action. The
unfortunate vendor who received the order becomes the subject of guile, persuasión, threats,
intimidation and general harrassment in an attempt to get his signature on a paper known as a
delivery schedule. God help the vendor who signs that paper. From then on, at every hour and at any
time, he will be confronted by expeditors demanding, "Where are those nuts?" Months go by,
but in the meantime someone at the Assembly Floor finds two nuts that fit the name plate. Without
authorization of the Surplus Parts Department, he applies the nuts that fit, and finishes the Motor.
The Motor is pushed out of the factory and into the Shipping Department, disassembled, crated,
unerated, boxed and shipped to British South África where it is now on the doek waiting for
an American engineer to show them how to put the damn thing together. SO WHAT DO THEY DO? THEY
CANCEL THE ORDER FOR THE TWO NUTS!!! (AND WE ALL GO NUTS). Now to issue a cancellation. Oh Heil,
what's the use? If the author of this gets fired, I didn't do it.

Say A Prayer
Wherever you happen to be When the Angelus sounds on high, Say a prayer for the boys at sea And
the boys of the land and sky. Whenever a church bell chimes, Bow the head at the solemn tones And
pray in these perilous times For the boys of our battle zones. Ask God for his love divine And His
great protecting care For the boys of His battle line In a moment of silent prayer. Wherever you
happen to hear The bells of the temple spire, Pray God to be always near The boys who are under
fire. - Copyright hy Edgar A. Guest. Reprinted with permission.
Leaves For Air Corps
Hats off to Charles Van Aken of Dexter, Michigan. He left Saturday morning, January 30th, to do
his part for Uncle Sam. Charles has been employed by International Industries as a group leader in
Optical Assembly. He was inducted into the Army Air Corps in Detroit on December 3, 1942, and had
been waiting patiently to be called. He said that he could hardly wait to meet a Jap face to face.
He is now stationed at Jefferson Barracks, Missouri, and we join his many friends in wishing him all
the good luck in the world.

Father Time Puts Up New Milestone For "cy" Harding
Well, the old man had another birthday. How old? All we know is that he only got whacked once
with the paddie. That's probably no indication of his age though, because Cy broke up the paddie
before anyone could swing it again. He's quite active yet, however. He'd have to be to break away
from the hold that Curt Adams had on him. Anyway the paint shop celebrated "Cy" Harding's
birthday in fine style with a fancy cake and everything. The boys and girls in the Paint Shop
presented him with cigarettes, a military brush and comb set and a necktie. Cy suspected that John
Bandrofchak was going to get even with him for the paddling he gave John on his birthday, so he let
Evelyn hold the paddie while Dick Bills was adjusting his camera. It seems as though Cy's trust was
misplaced because Evelyn took a swing with a lot behind it and gave Cy a dusting off.
Come With Me To Macedonia
The thinner our hair gets the more we incline to the belief that a run-ofmind with full facts is
more likely to make the right decisión than is a genius whose evidence on a given case is
patchy. Until a few days ago we thought this was an original discovery, but have jus1 learned from
Sloss-Sheffield's excellent "Pig Iron Rough Notes" that the same idea occurred to Lucius
Aemilius Paulus back in B. C. 168. As the MacArthur of the day, he was given the job of conducting
the war against the Macedonians. Before setting out he addressed himself thus to the ginmill
generáis: "If anyone thinks himself qualified to give advice respecting the war which I
am to conduct ... let him come with me into Macedonia. He shall be furnished with a ship, a horse, a
tent; even his traveling charges shall be defrayed. But if he thinks this too much trouble and
prefers the repose of a city life to the toils of war, let him not, on land, assume the office of a
pilot ... we shall pay no attention to any councils but such as shall be framed within our

Cut Me a Big Piece
It is beginning to look as if the job of overtaking the leading Lens Tool Room team is a little
too much for any of the challenging fives. In the past weeks different teams have moved into the
second spot and pressed the toolmakers for the lead, but each time the number one team has been
equal to the occasion and has brushed off the threat. The Lens Office team had been moving up slowly
and had reached the runner-up slot and seemed to have an excellent chance of upsetting the highly
respected leaders. After the toolmakers had been taken for three games by the rather lowly
Stockroom, the league was sure that the Office team could best them. But the i top-notch team showed
a complete versal of f orm from the week bef ore and j gave the challengers a sound thrashing, j
taking all four games. Norm Hartman, anchor man, rolled a pair of 200 games and a 570 series which
was just a little too much for the second placer s. Kelly Goss was high for the losers, but the
other members of his team were having a lot of trouble and ran into more than the usual number of
wide open splits. Not meaning to discredit the Lens team, it does seem that Lady Luck has been
smiling upon them quite a bit of the time. Outside of the margin that the leaders hold over the
second place team, the remainder of the league is well bunched. There is only a game between the j
ond, third, and fourth place team, and there is a difference of only two games from second through
the ninth place. In the second división the teams are also well bunched with the exception of
Machine No. 1, which is entrenching itself in the cellar spot. If there were only some way of
cutting the leaders down to the size of the rest of the league, it would make it a much more
interesting battle for the championship. The battle for the high individual average of the league
seems to be between Keuhn, Lawhead and Rumsey. These three are all bowling without handicaps and are
at present carrying 180 averages. This late in the season it is necessary for one to bowl many pins
above his average in order to raise his year's average, so the one of these three who can obtain a
one or two-pin advantage will have an excxellent chance of winning the honor of being the highest in
the Argus League. That satisfied look of Roy Hiscock's is the result of the success that he has been
having bowling in match games on Saturday afternoons. Each Saturday for
the past month there have been match games between pick-up teams, and Roy has set the pace in
most of these games. The first of these contests was between the All-Stars and Bendix Inspection. It
was a nip and tuck struggle all the way, and wound up with each winning two points. Roy, who was
bowling with the stars, led both teams with a 574 total. Swede Soderholm and Irish Joe O'Donnell
were high for the inspectors. The following week the match was between the stars and Curt Adams'
wildcats. As in the first games it was again Hiscock who led the stars, and his bowling enabled them
to gain an even break. In this trio of games, however. Roy had to share the spotlight with Fish
Keuhn, who was bowling with the wild ones. In the first game, Fish marked every frame and posted a
212. In the second line Keuhn really turned it on. Starting with four in a row and losing a pocket
hit in the fifth frame, "fireball" marked the remaining frames and totaled a sensational
241. In the third line with his ball still in the pocket, Fish marked a 220. In the three games his
total was 673, which is the highest series any member of the Argus League has bowled this year. The
third match game was between two supposedly All-Star teams, but as the results of the three games
showed a "whitewashing" for one of the groups their name was later changed to
"Boobs." All the members of the winning were decidedly "hot," and their total
was over 2,700. Hiscock's "eight dollar ball" was again going where he wanted it to, and
his performance was the highlight of the afternoon's bowling. The "Boobs" not being
convinced the better team had won, foolishly challenged the winners to a return match. This was
gladly given to them on the following Saturday. But again Hiscock was on the beam and he led the
stars in giving the "Boobs" another shellacking. The only consolation for the defeated was
that they were able to salvage one game out of the three. There is a rumor going around now that not
being satisfied with two drubbings, the vanquished are again begging for another match. They must
feel extremely lucky, or perhaps they have some way of "cooling off" Roy Hiscock.
BASKETBALL At the conclusión of the first half of the race for title in the red
división of the City League, the Argus quintet is deadlocked with Northside and American
Broach for first place. Coach Harding has his boys playing heads up ball and they have now won five
of the six games played. The only loss suffered by the Argus team was administered by the Northside
Club. In this content the opponents moved into a substantial lead in the first quarter of the game.
The smooth working Argus five found their shooting eyes after the initial period and started cutting
down the lead, but the margin was too great and the Northsiders were just able to hang on until
saved by the final whistle. After thi" only defeat the Argus team bounced back to hand American
Broach thei1' only defeat of the seaon. Mike Sinelli played his best game of the year. and hi
shooting and floor play wa the most important factor in the 29-21 triumph. A let-up was expected
after this win, but the team carne back the next week to defeat a small but fast Demolay team by a
comfortable margin. In this contest it was Jimmie Devlin who starred with his aggressive play and
his outstanding work under the boards. The Argus team has been improving with the playing of
each game, and if they are able to keep this up they should be in the race for the City
championship. Coach Harding has many capable reserves and these have been responsible to a great
extent ior the success of the team. The effect that these reserves have had on their I opponents is
shown by the fact that the ; Argus team is doing most of its scoring j in the final period. Keep up
the good work, fellows, and add that basketball trophy to the others that have been won by Argus

How About It, Curt?
Curt Adams has been pretty quiet about his Bendix Wildcats since the giris took his team for a
row of cans in a match game. When he saw the girls walk into the bowling alley, he said he thought
they were going to have some competition. Well, he got it, and how! The games were close, but the
girls won two games and had high totals for three games. The boys spotted the girls forty-one pins a
game, which the boys found was too much. This is what the two teams bowled: Leola Stoner 156 181

Close Battle On For Girls' Bowling Title
The Ladies' Bowling League is really getting hot as the season nears the halfway mark. Purchasing
went into first place by winning three games from Sales, as the Paint Shop dropped two games to
Optical One. Inspection won three from Camera to take third place and Engineering received three
games on a forfeit from Optical Three. All of the teams are close together now and anything can
happen from here on out. If any of the first five teams should lose three games, there would be a
lot of shufïling of the team standings. The other five teams are coming right along too and
every one of the girls is right in there pitching for her team. None of the teams are ready to throw
the sponge in yet. Sally Kneiper picked up the 2-7-9-10 split the other night when the number two

The Women's Corner
With the uniformed WAACS and WA VES in the spotlight, Iets not forget our equally important women
in overalls, slacks, and smocks who are working side by side with men in Ordnance plants, doing
their utmost to win this war. Some men don't like women in uniform or slacks, so it's up to us to
make them change their minds. Particularly, they do not like the way we wear our uniforms, when we
wear them, and where we wear them. To guide you, here are a ;sted DO'S and a few DON'TS to improve
your appearance in uniform or working clothes.
■ F DON'TS Don't wear long nails; it is not at all practical. Don't wear high heels, open toes,
or open heels. Don't let your face have a shiny, unclressed look. Don't wear a long, flowing hair
comb. It's unbecoming in uniform and dangerous near machines. Don't wear a uniform unless you are
qualified to wear it. Don't wear a sweater or blouse inside your slacks if you are stout. Don't
drink or smoke in public or wear your uniform in a night club or at a bar. Don't wear your uniform
in the evening unless you are on assignment.
DO'S Do keep your nails at a moderate length. Lacquer conservatively. Do wear low heels, walking
shoes that are comfortable. Do try to keep your nails looking smart. If you work on machines or
presses, try putting soap beneath the finger nails. Do be conservative, but use any make up you
desire to get the fresh, pretty appearance. Do wear a sweater or blouse over your slacks for neat
appearance. Do change your slacks or smocks as often as possible. A frequent change of garment will
eliminate any unhealthy I odor.
Use discretion in what you wear. If there is a uniform prescribed for women where you work, wear
it. If the choice is up to you, try to combine practicability with appearance. Unfortunately, not
all of us are built for slacks. A well-cut smock conceals bulges which would show in tight slacks or
The Argus Club is still receiving acknowledgments from the packages sent out. One carne from
Corporal Jack Hentz, who is in the Air Force Navigation School in Texas. Seaman Second Class Pierce
Criswell also sends thanks for the box sent to him. He's in a Navy construction battalion hard at
work building bases. Dave Boomer writes a letter of appreciation for the Argus Club's gift and says
that he's been in the hospital since November 18th and that the doctors have decided to give him a
discharge because the Army is too strenuous for him. Eliot Smith says that he's all ready for
Primary Flying School. He states that the Christmas package arrived in good order and wants to thank
the Club for it. Eliot says, "Argus Eyes arrived yesterday and is still top publication for my
money. By the way, in the opinión of two radio operators that I have talked to, Bendix
equipment is plenty O. K." Better late than never. We wish to extend a late acknowledgment of a
cable from Norman Egeler to the Argus Club from way out somewhere. He also sends his thanks for the
Christmas box. The Argus Club also received a card from Pvt. Hazen Figg. He's in Missouri and he
says thanks for the smokes, candy, cookies, razor blades, shaving cream, etc. Private Howard Geyer
writes to say that he was "leased with the box that the Argus Club sent and that "he has
,finished a six weeks' course at a radio engineering school at Washington, D. C. He is now going to
a clerks' specialist school in New Jersey. Mitchell Hopper reports that he is in a training school
in Chicago. He says that it's been plenty cold there. According to Mitchell the Servicemen's Center
there is swell. Plenty to eat, free smokes and dancing with girl volunteers. Maynard Wirth, now of
the Marines, writes that he's in the desert now but expects to leave for parts unknown soon. He went
on a trip through the Paramount Studio and met a lot of stars, including Gary Cooper. He's only
about thirteen miles from a group of Marines under Major Jimmy Roosevelt. Private Clifford Fowler
sends greeting from the sunny south. He says that he received the gifts and that he appreciated them
very much. Clifr says that if any of you find any time hanging heavy on your hands that he likes to
receive mail. "Serge" Aldrich sent a V-mail letter from. England to the Argus Club and
says that he was glad to be remembered. He spent Christmas and New Year's in the hospital and has
applied for a discharge. He writes, "Hope it won't be long before I am back, peeking into your
lunch boxes and things!" Bill Phillips writes from Shepard Field, "I am doing all right
but miss Ann Arbor. This country's a little dry. but there is plenty of water. That beverage is all
right but a little hard to get used to." He signs off with, "Keep hitting the head
pin." Joe Wright sends a message from Wisconsin. He says it's 32 degrees below there. He's
across the road from Al Stitt and says he sees Al two or three times a week. Rex Guiñan
writes from the deep South and says it's good to be where there's no snow, even if it is hot.
Private Kenneth Byer is with a tank destroying unt that is. training in Texas. He says he'll answer
all letters. Get his address from the Argus Club and drop him a line.
