Argus Recreation Club Meeting
At the October 3rd meeting, the details of the Fall Festival dance were worked out, and it was
decided to hold the party at the Washtenaw Country Club, with Gene Schumann's orchestra provld !ng
the music from 9 :00 to 1 :00. Due to the reduction in personnel and consequent decrease in
Recreation Club income, it has become necessary to reduce the size of our paper, Argus Eyes, and
Vern Heek presiding in the absence of Les Schwanbeck submitted a sample format of the new size
paper. This change is effective with the November issue. Afeo brought before the representatives was
the matter of Christmas gifts for the service men and women, and some sample gifts and gift
suggestions were considered and decided upon. The gifts will be sent to the home of the servicemen
wherever uncertainties exist regarding their addresses.
Mosier & Crumley Winners Again
Ideas that increase production and insure accuracy on the camera lines were submitted by Jack
Mosier and Howard Crumley and brought them each a Victory Bond. A tooi to expand the cam-gear was
Howard's suggestion, and Jack's was a slotted tooi for making camera adjustments. Both Jack and
Howard were Suggestion Plan winners last. month, too. Congratulations, and keep up the good
Straight Talk About The Victory Loan
The war is over - but that's not the whole story. Let's finish the job! WHY MUST WE HAVE A
VICTORY LOAN? 1. To pay the bilis for munitions and material already delivered and used. 2. To pay
the cost of guarding Germany and Japan. 3. To pay for the care of our wounded and disabled. 4. To
pay off and provide benefits for 8 million or more veterans to be discharged by next July. 5. To
keep the lid on price inflation. The Victory Loan Drive opens October 29 and extends through
December 8, 1945. lts 11 billion dollar quota includes a 4 bïllion dollar goal for individual
Americans. A lot of money! Your personal quota is one $50 bond. THE MONEY IS NEEDED. WHY? The
Treasury must meet the enormous obligations incurred in the achievement of victory. Government
expenditures are belng drastically reduced - and this will continue. Despite this, however, the
aftermath of war carries grave responsibilities that must not be shirked, and in facing this task
every American's help is needed. Before the end of 1945, the people's Treasury must look to the
people for further support.

Facts You Should Know About Social Security
The benefits you and your family will get when you retire and the benefits your family will get
if you die depend on your social security account. So it is of No. 1 importance that your account be
absolutely RIGHT. The Social Security Board does its end of the Job with nearly 100 percent
accuracy. You can rely on that. But there are more than 70,000,000 accounts, and sometimes errors do
occur. They occur because every once in a while an employer does not have a social security number
or a name just as it appears on the worker's card. Therefore, it is advisable to check on your
account. It is especially advisable to do so if you have worked for short periods for a number of
different employers, or for a firm that was in business only a short time, or for an employer who
did not copy down your social security account number, or did not deduct the 1 percent social
security tax from your pay. If you think an error has been made. write to the Social Security Board,
Baltimore, Maryland, and request a statement of your account. You can get an addressed post card
form at the nearest Social Security Board Office. If an error has been made, that office will help
you get it corrected. Once every four years you should check on your account anyway because after
four years some errors CANNOT be corrected. The Social Security Board office which serves Washtenaw
County is located at 709 Reynolds Building, Jackson, Michigan. The telephone number is 25588.
When I asked Roy B. for the news he handed me this photograph, with the remark that this was GOOD
news and plenty of it. You can see what he means - from left to right the boys are Jimmy Perkins and
Bruce Hiscock, Roy's grandsons. Jimmy looks like Roy, doesn't he, and Bruce is handsome, too. We are
still waiting for a photograph of Mrs. Radford and her five month old grandson, Red. These two have
breakfast together every morning, and Mrs. Radford says it is a wonderful way to start the day.
Virginia Fox has had word that her husband is on his way home! We are almost as thrilled as she is.
Saturday, October 13, Mrs. R. drove us to Toledo to have lunch with Ruth Scharren and her parents,
the Coffys. Ruth showed us her new clothes, (her second trousseau - she is meeting Jim in Chicago
next Saturday) and the Coffys showed us through the house they have
bought. Outside there is a wooded hill, a tennis court, a fish pond and a fireplace. We had a
delightful time, and hated to leave. Coming into Ann Arbor Saturday after our drive to Toledo we
were impressed anew with the beauty of our town, and congratulated each other on qur rare judgment
in choosing it as a place to live. Congratulations to everybody who lives or works in Ann Arbor!
The war is over and the guards are as grateful as anyone that it has finally ended. A few of the
familiar faces that we all know are still with us, although several of them are either gone or have
been transfèrred to other departments. However, each and every man and woman who worked on
Plant Protection want to express their appreciation of cooperation on the part of the employee group
as a whole. It has been through this complete cooperation that the guards and receptionists were
able to do their duty as efficiently as it has been done. Thanks to all of y ou.
Drafting The News
A newcomer to the drafting room is James E. Harvey who hails from Gingston, N. Y. He majored in
opties at the University of Rochester, and was formerly connected with the National Defense Research
Committee. Arvid Andresen, after a year and a half service at Argus left the company to take up his
former occupation as landscape architect which hé severed
some time ago to do war work. Bob White was seen in Flint shaking hands with his Uncle Sam. From
drafting board to draft board and return. M. S. Smith (Smitty) returned from a pleasant deer hunt up
north . . . that is everything was pleasant except the absence oí a deer. Elaine Mueller
after two consecutive summers at Argus, has returned once more to resume her studies at Capital
University in Columbus, Ohio. Flash . . . Girls, another man is out of the running. Our Mr. Richard
Wilson took the almost fatal step and became VERY MUCH engaged Wednesday, September 19th.
General Accounting Dept.
Mr. Miller was pleasantly surprised on September 28, when the Accounting Girls gave him a
"bang up" birthday party with all the trimmings. There were 2 cakes . . . One for Mr
Miller and the other for Jessie Hack who has left the company to become a lady of leisure. Roy
Hiscock dished out the ice cream, (and dished some in, too). Mr. Miller was presented with a tan
sport jacket and with the help of the Cost Accounting payroll, and Stationery Stock Department, a
gala time was had by all.
"three Little Words"
September is a short month and two weeks out doesn't leave much time to gather news. However, no
one wanted the honor of being guest reporter so here's the bits I've collected. Doris Ehnis became
Mrs. Victor Kershal when Vic came home on leave after serving in the European theater. She sent us
greetings from Pennsylvania and is now back in town f or a few days en-route to Montana. Good luck
kids! Sylvia Feldcamp has been transferred to another department and Marilyn Smith and Gertrude
Sutton have joined our ranks. I picked up quite a bit from chatter at random. It seems Nancy nearly
created a riot by . . . but maybe we should keep that a secret, eh Nan? Mary Jane is featuring a new
nail polish in various shades of blue, green and black, but only on one finger. She caught it in the
door. What did you say M. J. ? Grace is expecting her husband to be home on leave about Christmas.
Eunice's better half reports climatic conditions much more comfortable around Okinawa than in other
parts of the Pacific he has been in. Merna had a deluge of letters from Roger. He is around northern
Japan near the Russian border and feels the need of red flannels. Juanita, Ginney and Joyce think
Lady Luck has deserted them as their husbands do not expect to be home for several months. Speaking
of Lady Luck, she certainly
has smiled at our friend Glen. Did you ever hear of anyone winning so many pools? Me thinks he
ought to treat us all to at least an ice cream cone. Les has been spending most of this month in
Detroit getting 'eddicated' - I. B. M. mostly. That 'thing' you see whizzing around the streets is
Bob's new means of transportaron. Who wants a ride? Marie has moved already. Likes her new apartment
much better. Wilmot's son is almost thru his Coast Guard Training so she is expecting him home on
leave soon. Bob, Roy, and Norm went duck hunting but we didn't have a duck dinner again this year.
Why don't we fems start hunting and show 'em how? We're going to be starved in a few more years if
we wait for them to get the ducks or vension. We were guests at the ice-cream and cake party given
by General Accounting in honor of Mr. Millers birthday. The 'Paddle' got a good work-out. Dottie
Simms celebrated her first wedding anniversary on September 30. We all hope her sailor husband
will be ytp to celébrate next year. Her b ■; who has been discharged f rom the aiuTy, came
to visit her here at the office. Harry Rookes reports his family doing well but hasn't brought in
that picture yet. By the way, Bob reports the long promised birthday party pictures didn't take,
isn't that awful? Collette is spending a week in Norfolk, Virginia and did she have great
expectations ! Guess that's all for now, folks.

Affable, well-liked member of the guard force and keeper of the Doors at Argus, Inc., in which
capacity he has been cheerfully greeting employees since August 10, 1937. Was bom in Sparta, Greece
in 1885 and recalls that it was a city of 35,000 . . . since depleted by Naziism. Owns his own home

and 2 sons. Remembers his invasión of America in 1901 when he travelled f rom Greece alone to
land in New York' with exactly $15.00 . . . no knowledge of English, but a 16 year old determination
to learn it. Landed his first job in a Germán bakery, but a lack of both languages resulted
in employer confusión. However, began speaking a variety of English in 1906 and became
conductor and motorman on the street car system of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. A few years of this
practically cleared up the language situation. Finally settled in Michigan after living at various
times in New York, Massachusetts and Ohio. Owned restaurants at Jackson and Brooklyn, Michigan for
over 20 years and has worked on the guard force at the State Capítol, Lansing. Would like to
see his native Greece again some day. Thinks the U. S. is tops and claims that his study of English
convinces him that most of the words are pronounced incorrectly. Says that his announcements on the
P. A. system verify this.
Camera Club News
The Camera Club has started a new season with new officers. After a summer suspension of
meetings, the club convened in September and elected Albert Stohrer to be the new chairi, and
Clifford Coniway to be the etary-treasurer. The . new officers v considerable promise, as evidenced
by the increased number of prints at the last meeting, principally because of Al's and Cliff's
activity among the members. In addition to the regular competition at the last meeting, an airplane
picture contest took place. The pictures were taken at the Ann Arbor Airport during the previous
meeting. The prizes were airplane rides, donated by the Gridley Flying Service. A suggested future
assignment will be aerial pictures - that is, photographs made from the air. Now that film, paper
and other photographic supplies are reappearing on the market, and spare time becomes less rare, we
should get many more pictures at each meeting. Schedules of assignments may be obtained from Al
Stohrer, Chairman. Watch the bulletin boards for announcements of meetings and scheduled programs.
Meetings are regularly held on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month.
Dougy, young son of Corpora Arthur Gerstier Jr. is pictured cele brating his third birthday with
a b&ge and luscious cake with can Bi and all the trimmings. orporal Gerstier is in St. Angelo,
Texas at Goodfellow Field awating his discharge from the service. Grandpa Art Gerstier Sr. is very
proud of both the boys.
Many of the girls whöse jobs endec with the end of the war have now been rehired in other
departments. We want to say, "Thanks for the excellent job they did, and wish them luck in
their new ventures. We like to know about the girls who have worked in here, and so it was with
pleasure that we heard the news about Helyn Moore's new baby, Georgia Lee. Bring her around, Helyn
and let us all see her. Thressell Conley and Cecile Eubank are really lonesome for all the Kentucky
gals who left, especially Helen Bybee who sang the Hillbilly tunes with them. We hear that Helen has
organized a new "choir" in Plant I. Ginny Burt is wearing a big, big smile these days . .
. and no wonder. She recently married Herb Busch and is now a very efficiënt housekeeper and
cook. Smart kid, that Ginny, she knows the way to a man's heart. On top of that her brother has been
discharged from the Army and will be able to spend Christmas with his family. Esther Woelper was
pleasantly surprised with some birthday gifts on October 12th. Of course, her birthday was really
the 13th, but better early than never. Pauline Johnson had a cold for a couple of days and cured it
with a "whiskey sweat". She reports that the cure is excellent. Edith Flournoy and hubby
should be all settled in their new Pontiac Road home by this time. How is it, Edith, ok? tseems a
little screwy to be taking i baths for reducing and malted for gaining. And that's what one gal is
doing. We won't name any names but you'd think a scotchman's daughter would have more sense. At
least she's trying to counteract the malteds, but Rosie Gloessell and Cec don't even do that. Elsie
Paradise tells us she's happy to report that her son-in-law is being
discharged from service. He has been in Germany and France. Donna Rice is in the market for a car
and if anyone would like to sell her. one, she is willing to talk business. Just cali her at home or
in care of Girvan at the shop. The Big Five are available to anyone who wants cheer leaders. We hear
that they can be heard all the way from the bowling alley to State Street. Everyone regretted Norm
Hartman leaving us, but Norm had a good offer in his home town and took it. Optical Assembly isn't
the same without him and we hope he misses us. If you want to drive Eddie nuts, just start him off
on "I just hung my head and cried." Once he hears it he just cain't hep singing it. Many
happy returns to Helen Snyder. Helen Fraser, and Rosemary Schosser whose birthdays are this

Japanese Money Sent By Boyd Head
A very fine letter writer, that's Boyd, and generous, too. R. D. Howse was the recipiënt of
a newsy letter from Boyd in which he enclosed some Japanese money ... a nice souvenier. According to
a letter which Boyd wrote Mrs. Scharren, it really rains in the Philippines where he is stationed,
and he is willing to exchange all of it for a glimpse of home.
September 27, 1945 Dear Friends Just received June, July, August, and September copies of the
Argus Eyes, and sure was glad to get them. I might add that they are not only welcomed by me, but
the rest of the boys all take their turns with them, and like it very much. You might teil Sgt.
Lesis he's kind of letting me down. I have quite a time finding those little parts about the Guards.
I enjoy reading the letters from the other boys around the world, and my Army life seems very dull
to theirs. The buildings on this island were very thoroughly flattened by either the Air Force or
the Buil Dozers of the Engineers, and I can think of nothing I'd like more to do when I get back
than to just sit down and look at a real building again. But the work is going on very well, and we
are enjoying for the first time in months eating ins'de out of the rain. Due to the efforts of a
night patrol of the boys and a very sleepy C. B. Guard we now have a very nice mess hall and good
'ole U. S. lumber. I want to thank you very much for the papers, and I hope to be back getting mine
in person very shortly. But I'm sending my new address so I may enjoy them until my time comes up.
This outfit has quite a background: IS islands; 5 campaigns, and yet they have never been in the U.
S., being formed at the Island of Oahu, and was in training there when Pearl Harbor was bombed. They
have been overseas 40 months, but of course most of the old fellows have gone home now. Looking
forward to the next copy of the "Eyes", and thanking you again for the past ones, I
The department is happy to welcome Cohley Graves back. Conley entered service in 1942, and now af
ter ha ving done his job well is again back at Argus to resume his work in the drill press room.
Walter Root and Harold Forbes are two vets of this war who are taking advantages of the training
programs offered under the G.I. Bill of Rights. Walter is taking a correspondence course while
Harold is entering a special training class here at the University. Wilma Bailey has returned to
work and has given us the good news that her husband Sgt. Harold Bailey is soon to be returned to
the states and given his discharge. Harold has been stationed on Attu for about three years. Al
Sannes was telling some of the :ellows about the kind of pheasant ïunting they have in his home
state of South Dakota. The stories seemed to )e just a bit exagerated so Al brought n an article
taken from Hunting and Fishing in which the author backed verything that Al had claimed. Ralph Flick
is going to have to make ome smart bets during the football eason to make up for the beating he ook
during the baseball season, and especially the World Series. He says the Buckeyes of Ohio will make
up for that
when they meet Michigan. Maybe, but they are going to have to be a great football team to beat
Michigan this year. Joe "Numbers" Gross is having a ittle difficulty hitting the right
comjinations. He has two of them right, sut doesn't seem to be able to figure out that third one.
Ted Doman is receiving letters reguarly from his son who is now located n the Philippines. Shortly
after graduating from Ann Arbor High where he was a member of the football team, Ted r. signed up
with the Navy and after lis training was sent into the Pacific. Lucille Brazee is thinking strongly
of "going west". She claims that the cenery in Colorado is especially apealing to her. Why
the sudden interst in colorful Colorado? We were all very glad to meet [irby Ludwick who has just
returned lome for ninety days after having been iberated from a Japanese Prison camp fter being a
captive for four years. George Conn is taking over his iuties of night supervisor and set-up man.
George is being kept very busy aking care of the lathes, milis, drill resses and the hand screw
machines. The department received a letter rom Russ Conley who is now located n the Phillipines. He
writes that he xpects to be shipped to Japan soon
and will be a member of the occupation force. We wish you the best of luck, Russ, and sincerely
hope that your stay there will not be too long. The popular Chuck Sanders has :aken over the duties
as the night shift inspector. Working nights affords 3huck with the opportunity to indulge n a
little hunting. Luck has been just :air. In the past few months no Argus Gal has been named, and the

Melba Bowden joined the Sales Forcé in July of this year. She hails f rom Lubbock, Texas
(one of those Southern Belle's), and is in Ann Arbor with her husband Ensign A. C. Bowden, U.S.N.R.,
who is stationed at the U. of M. Melba says she likes Michigan - but is counting the days until she

years of happiness. Esther (Allen) Melzer returned to work the happy bride of David Melzer, home on
leave after many months of service in the European Theatre of war.
We were pleased to meet David and hope the kids have a happy married life when they can finally
be together We miss Clara Schallhorn since she has been helping Sally Kneiper in the Paint Shop. She
drops in once in a while to see us. It is nice to have Mary Fowler back with us. Welcome, Mary. We
got a nice letter from our swell boss, Eric Soderholm, who is in the hospital. He says he is getting
along fine and feeling much better. We miss him very much and hope he will be home by the time thls
is read or better still, before.
Bessie Coon and Marjorie Young gets along marvelously regardless of all the funny ñames
they cali one another. Lillian Stutzman will have had a wonderful visit with hejr sisters by this
time. She hasn't seen one of them for nine years. I hope Nina Walterhouse has a little more heat in
her house by now. Benny Eearney goes around with a satisfied look on her fizog these days. She will
be joining the Housewives Group soon. She sure deserves it. Bernice "Scuffy" Wilson and
hubby Ross are finally settled in their new home in Darlington. Ours is a small department now but
busy as bees and happy that we are finally on civilian production.

To my friends at Argus: I want to thank all of you for the lovely gift which you gave me on my
leaving the company. I know I will be leaving a lot of wonderful friends here, but will be thinking
about you often.
With the football season at the halfway mark the conference race is as much oí a quesLon
mark as it was at the opening game. Michigan after a mediocre start in which they dropped a 13-7
dec.s.on to Indiana, has come along in the past few weeks and must now be given a very good chance
of knockmg off Obuo State, Minnesota and Purdue in their final games. The Michigan team is almost
entirely a freshmen team, and these youngsters reached their peak when they battled the strong Army
eleven, and although being defeated gave the Cadets their hardest battie in two years. Michigan is
also bemg strengthened with the return of veterans and also the transfer of trainees, so for the
final games the Wolvermes will be at f uil strength. All teams meeting Michigan this year will be in
for a rough afternoon. At this writing Ohio State, Minnesota, and Purdue are all undefeated, but
their opposition has been weak and none has really been tested. The chances are that not one of
these teams will come up to thir clash wlth Michigan with a clean slate. These three games will all
be played here, and should provide some of the top-notch football of the entire year.
Al Baís, former Machine Shop employee, was a recent v'.sitor. Al is now stationed at Pyote
Field, Texas. Joe O'Reilly has been transferred írom department 40 to the Bufíing
Room. Leona Smith and Amos Kline have made up a party of eight couples to go pheasant hunting on the
opening day. We wish them good hunting. Ál Stitt is with us since h's discharge. Al used to
work in Salvage before going to the Army.
Blanche Ranson's son is home . . . discharged from the Navy after three years and seven months.
James Wyman is new in the Burr Room but not to Argus as he was formerly employed in Plant II. Cora
Barhitte was recalled to work . . . also Dorothy Williams. Do you suppose Libby really got that
banged up forehead while dressing? That's what she says, anyway.
George Pickering was called to Connecticut because of the serious illness of his wife's mother.
Sid Weiner was our supervisor during George's absence . . . did a good job of it, too. Bill Paradise
is the lucky one. How about a treat, Bill. Too bad there aren't more World Series.
The Argus League is now in its seventh week, and the race this year has gotten off to its best
start since the league was first organized. The teams are so closely bunched at this time that to
date no less than five teams have been leading the parade. In past years one of the entries usually
started out burning up the league and building up a substantial lead. No team has dominated the
play, and as a result the standings are jumbled af ter each weeks bowling. It is hoped that this
condition w.ll continue through the entire season. If this is done, we shall have the most
successful season. The highlight of the Argus League has been the return of the service men into the
bowL'ng circle. Mei Bahmiller, who had the most remarkable kind of service record, having completed
over fifty m'ssions as a gunner, is now back at Argus and showing h:s old time form in the league.
Before entering the service "Lefty" Mei was considered one of the best at Argus. He seems
to have lost none of his ability and is again bowling sensationally. Al Stitt is another returning
service man who has entered into the league. At this
ing Jack Carver has returned" to work and it is hoped that Jack will again take an active
part in the league. ? fore entering service Jack was e gg. of the strong toolroom five. All at Argus
are proud of Jack's record, and are thankful to havev back w.th us. In the individual department
Glenn Hilge's Method team has achieved the most impressive marks. On opening night the Method five
posted a high single game that will be hard to better. Rube Egeler and John Kendrovics both bettered
the 200 mark and with the other members chipping in with nice scores the team counted a single game
of 935. Last years high single was 925 so it is very possible that this game will stand up. This
team also posted high three game total on opening night. Although the Lens Polishers have had
trouble winning, this team has already established itself as one of the favorites in the Argus
League. The team consists of first year bowlers, but their spirit and sportsmanship have made it
very popular. The very colorful Rollie Snyder is a member of this entry, and even though this is his
first year he is proving himself a competitive bowler. It is the injection of the new bowlers and
the return of the service men that will give us the best kind of season this year.
Argus Ladies' Bowling
With the bowling season well on it's way we find the Schwaben Inn team right on top. This team
was Rolfe's Pinbusters last year. The City Slickers, Victory, and Cupid Bar (formerly Five Aces) are
all tied for second place. Hollis and Towner (former Schuon's Service), the Ramblers and Happy Gang
follow in that order. The Alley Wrens and Jitterbugs are tied for sixth place and the Machine Shop,
Planning and the Slick Chicks follow. Schwaben Inn has highest single game without handicap, 782 and
highest three games without handicap, 2219. City Slickers have highest three games with hand'cap,
2104 and Planning has highest single game with hand'cap, 717. Thelma Livesay had a 509 series to go
over Laura Snearly's former high series of 505. Laura helped Thelma along by cheering for her and
then wondered why she did so when she found out Thelma nosed her out of that position by four pins.
That shows we have good 3ports in the world of bowling. Clem' Donner has high single game of 201 and
has five strikes in a row. Thelma Livesay, Laura Egeler, Laura Snearly, Mary Raymond and Mary Briggs
lead the league in averages. Mary Raymond has been most consistant, holding a 141 average for five
weeks without change. The girls have had a little trouble getting uniforms but hope to blossom out
PLANT TWO Finally the Bowling League is organized in Plant II, although we don't have its members
of former days, the spirit of good feeling and fairness is still with the gang. The officers are :
President - Catherine Bauer . Vice President - Alta Mahurin Secretary - Francés Hill
Treasurer - Helen Fraser Sergeant-at-Arms - Pauline Johnson Each team is wearing the name they had
last year. The Lucky Strikes are doing f holding first place, but Thressel jjjíj bowled with
the Spit-Fires last can't keep up those games of 201 l night. Office is in second place. They have
some change this year in their bowlers, and miss Nellie Myers. Irene Labeau, a new member of the
League is bowling with Office. Helen Fraser helped the Spit-Fires out with a game of 204. Helen
Snyder who bowls with the Spit-Fires is doing alright, too. The Bims hold their original team with
the exception of Mrs. Robert Smock taking Virginia Ross' place. The Hep Cats are right in there
bowling this season. The "Big Five" are still with us bigger and better every year.
Francis Hill seems to be enjoying bowling with them this year. Of course, Eubank and Schallhorn make
everyone happy with refreshments which helps the spirit of the League.
