The 1945-46 Argus Bowling League has only six weeks remaining, and even though the Methods team
is now leading, the teams are so closely bunched that any one of a number of entrys could walk off
with the league crown. Only five games separate the first place Methods from the Skunks in fifth
place. This is the first year that so many teams have been battling for the title and the extra cash
at this late stage of the race. In the past few weeks last year's championship Bear team has made
its most determined bid, and is now in second place, two games off the pace. The high spot in their
drive was the blanking of Methods and Office on successive weeks. The Bears were trailing by seven
games when they crossed alleys with the league leaders and their efforts were rewarded with a sweep
of the four games. The following week the Bears encountered the second place Office five, and with
Maurey Howe leading the way, the ex-champs again took all four points and not only cut the lead of
the Methods, but also took over the runnerup spot. In these games Maurey really got "hot".
After warming up with a modest 171 game, Mo found the groove and after sparing the opening frame
hooked together six in a row, spared in the eighth, and then struck in the ninth and tenth to end up
with a 2S8 game which is high single game for the year. Tied for third place are the Office and the
Inspection teams. These two entrys have been up near the top during the entire schedule, and each
vows that it is not going to fold in the stretch drive. The Inspectors are in a good position to do
themselves some good in their bid because both of the top teams remain on their schedule. If the
Inspection team r up for these games, it is easy to them at the top. The Office eniso in a position
to scramble the igs by repeating their performances of the first half of the schedule when they were
almost unbeatable. The Skunks, after having gained the top rung and then ousted, seemed to have
fallen off their fast pace and are now in fifth place and five games away from the lead. It is
perhaps premature to count them out of the race, but in the past few weeks the spark seems to be
missing. However, they have proven themselves capable of putting on a winning streak, and the team
cannot be counted out until it is mathematically eliminated. The returning service men have shown to
good advantage, and are walking off with the outstanding individual performances. Tony Rupas, who
joined up with the Machine 2 team after returning from the European Theatre of War, is now leading
the league in individual averages with a nice 174. Norm Egeler, another veteran of the European
area, has regained his well proven ability and recently entered a no handicap tournament in Detroit.
Norm bowled six games and for these he averaged 203 pins. Norm was high on his shift and received a
nice hunk of prize money for this excellent display of bowling.

Letter From Serviceman
etter from William E. Duncan, 116 Wheatland Ave., loscoe 3, California January 26, 1946 Dear Sirs
: I feel that I must write you about your Observation Telescope, one of which I recently purchased,
in fact I purchased it just today. I have been intensely interested in your scopes, ever since I
first saw one at the National Rifle Matches in 1939. I have looked through many, many spotting
scopes in my rifle-shooting days, and have yet to find one that will come up to the standards your
scopes set f or a sharp, clear, well deñned image, light gathering power, and ease of
handling and adjustment. As many of the most well known shooting authorities say, "this is a
truly amazing scope, it is so good that you can't do better for the money
where". As for my own personal observations hey are this : it is simply the clearest,
)rightest scope I have ever looked hrough, bar none. And you may use hese statements in your
advertising, f you wish to. I spent 33 months overseas, and 22 months in a combat zone, (Solomon
slands) with an intelligence platoon of an Infantry regiment of the 37th (Buckeye) División.
During this time, especially before, during and after the battle of hill 700, on Bougainville
Island, I had occasion to use one of your observation scopes in an observation post 350 yds. f rom
hill 700, and 20 yds. almost directly above our barbed wire entanglements. I was able to use your
scope many, many times in this positión. It helped us to lócate a Jap gun 75 mm.
mountain gun, positión 3200 yds. away on a hill opposite us which was promptly destroyed by
our own artillery. With this scope I could see ship's officers in white uniforms and working parties
in blue dungarees on the deck of a cruiser in Empress Augusta Bay a measured five and one-half miles
away ! ! That's no lie, all the other boys with me could also make them out. (Our ships, of course)
. Out there, your scopes were a wonderful help, especially in our case, and now I for one am more
than glad to see them back home again with us sportsmen and shooters. Very sincerely yours,
'thank You' Notes
Thank you for the lovely flowers sent me while I was ill. I certainly enjoyed them. Edith Garlick

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 Argus, Incorporated. 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 Editor Chas. A. Barker

This department really deserves a medal for surviving the dirt and dust and noise and smell
caused by the remodelling of the factory. We know when we get settled we will have a nice
department, so we can take it. Leola Stoner, Mary Beth Briggs and Aggie Thurston took Nina
Walterhouse out one evening to celébrate her birthday. Nina says she enjoyed it very much.
Doris Layer is back with us after her short leave. Louise Koebnick's son was home from the Navy to
visit her for a few days. Dickie Jim Meidrum came in to see us one day. No wonder his dad, Jim,
busts his buttons every time he talks about him. He is a fine boy. Jim Barth has been discharged
from thé'Army and has joined our crew. Welcome, Jim. We hardly knew Mary Beth Briggs when she
came in one morning with a new hair due. There isn't much of it but what there is, is very becoming.
Please note : Jim Meldrum's apartment has been rented. There should be less phone calis at Jim's
house now. Tony Rupas seems to be doing all right with his bowling from the reports he gives us each
E. O. S.
Well, with the new group of officers for the Argus Recreation Club, must come a new reporter,
soooo let's be on with the news of the E. O. S. Frank Hotzel I. w. is back on the road to recovery,
so we again have the wit back to his oíd (mean what I say) standard. Tex Williams looks
skyward with that far-away look, me thinks I smell the urge of water in the air, must be the first
robin got thru the rigors of his long trip north. H. McCombs is again hale and hearty, and back to
his old stand-by. But a new cloud has darkened the horizan, shall we say (let's), as they do in the
Army, "Operation Appendix". Greg. Our gallent Greek, adds to his long list of doings two
more note worthy feets, (as spelled) re: - PhoJjgraphy andor Music (via Clarinet) ? ? A new quota
for one of the new officers, Mr. E. G. of the O. A., "H.C.Y.M. A.S.L.T."
Maintenance And Methods
Anyone have an extra pair of roller skates? Ed Sleezer could use them, what with all the extra
territory he has to cover. . .We welcome Don Crump to our methods department. Hope he likes it.
WANTED : A load of saw dust. Contact Bill Beard, Methods Department. Could it be that Mrs. Wrathell
and Mrs. Schlimmer are becoming air minded .... they seem to be going up in the elevator quite a bit
lately. We were sorry to have Bob (Grant) Miller leave our methods dept., but wish him lots of luck
in his new venture. We are proud to have Manson Osgood in our department, who is not only a very
conscientious worker, but a very generous one. Dutch Englehardt is more energetic than ever these
days. Also has that glint in his eyes .... must be springfever. A man of very few words (by his own
admission) .... all action. Mrs. Haeft is confined to the hospital at present, but we sincerely hope
she will be better soon, Ossie. Is there anything more pleasing than Glen's laugh? It's right f rom
the toes up. Walter Hassig went to the hospital for an operation. Best wishes for a speedy recovery,
Walt. Harry Kaufman celebrated his 25th wedding anniversary March 2Oth. Many happy returns of the
Harry Letsis celebrated his birthday March lOth. It was a happy day for Harry as the whole family
was home to ïelp celébrate. We will all be very happy once we are settled in our new
Rocky's payroll department has been in rather a turmoil for the past month. We've all noted the
absence of Dortha Simms who left to get back into the swing of housekeeping once again. We're all
hoping for the speedy return of her lusband. But in her shoes we welcome Louise Palmer, formerly a
teacher in Ferndale, Mich., who is really doing a fine job, especially pulling time cards in the
morning! Another welcome goes out to Mildred Michal, better known as "Scotty", a former
timekeeper in Plant II. Yes, they come - they go, and speaking of going, why Myrna went and got
herself married to Roger Place. We know she's happy by that big smile always on her face. Good luck
and best wishes to our bride and groom.
Now to the "shiny" side of the department. It's that sparkler on the third finger, left
hand of Doris, known as "Dodo" Hainen and caretaker of the Stationary Stock room. Her
fiance, Jimmy McCarty, hailing from Sault Saint Marie, Ontario, dropped in last Sunday and plans a
two weeks' visit here. It will be wedding bells in June for them and as much as we'll hate to see
"Dodo" leave us to live in Canada, we'll wish her loads of luck and happiness and perhaps
she'll consent to welcome our two weeks' visit in the summer. We've noticed a special gleam in
Wilmot's eyes lately and can understand why after hearing that her son Charles has been home on a
short leave from the Coast Guard. Virginia is enjoying a grand vacation with her husband, recently
returned from overseas and discharged. With roller skates, 2 x 4's etc, the department wants to ask
Rocky a question. Just what is the true thickness of a 2 x 4 to be used in connection with your
cement block machine? We received a card from Joyce Sager who informs us that she is now living in
Nebraska where her husband is stationed. Clare says that she and Jake are anticipating building a
new home. Let's have a party when it's finished, eh Clare? Sandy as well as Harold are usually seen
working away on Production cards and never bothering anyone. Sandy 's husband has been discharged
from service and is studying to become a doctor. We've heard that Juanita really doesn't object too
much to being tripped or pushed out the house door at noon as long as it's by her hubby. How's about
Efficiënt, hardworking lathe or milling machine operator in the Machine Shop. Has been with
Argus since July 17, 1941 . . . was born in Lindsay, Ontario1, Canada and became a citizen of the U.
S. last year. Lives at 1119 Packard St., Ann Arbor, where she owns her own home. Went to Ann Arbor
High School and has an A. B. f rom the University of Michigan, where she specialized in languages.
Has an interesting background of travel and ventured as far afield as England, South America,
Trinidad, etc. Recalls an adventurous two years at a copper mining camp in Arizona run almost
entirely by Mexicans. Spends her vacations with her relatives on the Hudson river in New York,
claims that she has no hobbies or sports worth talking about. Is quite emphatic, however, about her
desire to some day take off in a hurry and see the rest of the world from the decks of tramp
steamers. Probably spends her vacations in close conversation with salty sea captains who see eye to
eye with her on this subject.
Doe Benson's Service Department gave a farewell dinner party for Dorothy facobus. Everyone had a
swell time. Dorothy is leaving Argus after eight years and will soon become Mrs. Joseph Juergens,
Jr. in Seattle, Washington. Best of luck, Dorothy. Miss Gail Ueberhorst, an Argus Club
Representative, and also a member of the Service Department is the proud possessor of a beautiful
sparkler for that fourth finger of the left hand. The lucky fellow is Mr. Jack Galloway of Detroit.
No wedding date has been set.
General Acctg. Department
Af ter just taking a quick glance around our Department we find the f ollowing news to report :
Gerry Brown will be absent for a few days as she is having her tonsils removed. She isn't a bit
worried and the frog will be gone from her throat forever. We have a blushing bride in our midst,
and one in the offing. The bride being Mrs. Jack Kinney, alias Lee Heuer, and the bride-to-be, Milly
LaRue. Lee was married on February 28th and spent a honeymoon in Chicago. Milly is to be married
April 27th and will also honeymoon in Chicago. Both of the gals are wearing a contented and happy
smile and may it remain forever. Jane McMahon really didn't have a jaw breaker protruding from her
jaw on the days you passed by the Receptionist's desk, but it looked that way. It was just the
results of having two teeth pulled. Mrs. Gillespie and Clem Donner are all ready for Spring and
shall be in the Easter Parade. They have their costumes complete and we are anxious for a preview.
Doris Kershul has had the pleasure of her husband's company for he past few weeks, as he is spending
a twentyeight day furough from Fort Sam Houston, Texas. Kirk Fisher like some of the other boys,
spent a day at the convention in Buffalo. We didn't hear much about it, but we take it they put
business and pleasure together and had a good time. Mr. Miller hasn't made his appearances very much
this past month. The O.P.A. in Detroit keeps him busy or is it Spring f ever?
Isabelle Nash proudly displayed a good looking leather purse she received 'rom Mexico. She'll
probably want to spend her vacation seeing what else the WEST has to offer.
The formation of this departnyV Drought to Argus some new fad Dorothy Bisson and Helen Pearce,
anü some transferees - Kay Bond and Sid Weiner. The department is supervised by Les Schwanbeck
and he has, of course, as his gal Friday, Alice Blanchard. The department, when fully organized and
all alterations are completed, will have an Open House to acquaint all Argus employees with the
latest in mechanical equipment for recordkeeping, analytical statistics and so on. More about this
in a future issue of Argus Eyes. A party, held in conjunction with Cost Accounting and Payroll, was
held March 8th at Marilyn Inn. A fine time was had by all - that is, until the beer ran out and
things gradually disintegrated. Anyone interested in raising roses is asked to contact Dottie Bisson
who has developed a marvelous method of fertilization.
Congratulations On Your Fifth Anniversary At Argus
Dick Wilson was married in Findlay, Ohio, March 9th. Mrs. Wilson is the former Pat King. Upon his
return to Argus the Engineering Department presented him with a huge package. One led to another and
when the last package was opened Dick received a partially paid receipt for on Sunbeam Mixmaster
with $4.31 due. (Things should really be stirring now).
Passing The Hat
The flying club's cartoon of the month is really already obsolete. It is good nevertheless, and
indicative of the club's circumstances at the time it was drawn, when we collected a special
assessment from the members and placed order for a new ship. In the meanwhile however, waiting for
this new airplane is trying our patience. At the time of this writing, delivery still seems a long
ways off, and a lot of good flying weather is going to waste. Most of the members feel now that they
want a good ship and want it soon, whether it be new or used. The management is making every effort
to satisfy that wish, so things are more figuratively than actually up in air. In shopping for and
purchasing a used airplane, one must proceed with considerable caution, but we hope that by the time
this is printed we'll be flying again. Although right now we don't know just yet in what it will be.
One thing we do know, whatever ship we end up with, it will be good. It'll have most if not all the
improvements and advantages we want and which our old ship lacked. By the way, girls. If you feel
like joining the club, step right up because you won't be the first one to do so. This month we
welcome Peggy Allen as our newest member. We hope for her sake that she won't be the only girl in
the club for long. With guys like Verne Nelson on the loose, like at a recent meeting, two girls
could use each others protection.
It was a dry evening all around when Holl's and Towner bowled in the City Tournament. Even the
scores were dry. They tried anyway. The team consisted of Leola Stoner, Francés Soderholm,
Clara Schallhorn, Marian Clement and Verald Adams. Leola bowled in Marie Hilge's place. The team
bowls regular in the Argus Ladies League. Better luck next year girls.
hard James Meidrum, better kflown as "Dickie Jim", is the three months oíd son
of Jim and Evelynne Meidrum. Dickie's mother formerily worked in Ginny Lau's department and dad is
supervisor of Receiving Inspection.
Argus Ladies' Bowling
Competition is keen in the league with the team standings so close together. Cupid Bar was one
game in the lead for first place the night they bowled Schwaben Inn. The Schwaben girls took the
Cupids for two games to go into a tie for first place. The next week both teams lost two games
apiece so they are still tied. Victory and the City Slickers are following close behind. The other
teams f ollow in this order : Hollis & Towner, Happy Gang, Alley Wrens, Jitterbugs, Ramblers,
Planning, Machine Shop, and the Slick Chicks. Some of the individual scores have changed. Thelma
Livesay has high single game of 202 and high individual series of 551. Clara Schallhorn has nine
spares in a row. The Jitterbugs have high single team game with handicap 779. Lee Kennedy showed us
all how to piek up splits when she turned the 6-7-10 into a spare.
Tiny seventeen months oíd Sandra Kay looks rather bewildered in her spring outfit
consisting of her daddy's jacket and hat. She is known to her intimate friends as "Sandy"
and is the little daughter of Harold "Red" Hopper.
Oíd Sol has been very generous this spring and the urge to get out and indulge in sports
has taken hold of all oí us at Argus. It is hoped that the spring and summer program will be
much more active than it was last year. With so many of the employees interested it is reasonable to
expect a full summer sports program. Last year Argus was represented by only one softball team. This
was plainly due to the fact that most of the talent was in the Armed Services. Most of these have
now returned, and there is every reason to believe that the Argus Recreation Club could sponsor a
winning team in the Industrial League. In previous years Argus fielded some of the best teams in Ann
Arbor. It is the belief that this can be accomplished this year with all of the available talent now
employed at Argus. The city golf courses are now open and many of the golfers are getting in shape
for the summer golfing season. A few matches were arranged last year, but there d'd not seem to be
enough interest to organize a league within the shop. It should be easy to créate the
interest needed to form an Argus Golf League. All of those interested in spring and summer sports
should now start getting things organized so that we will have a full program this year.

Good news is prevalent in the mailing department these days and lest you haven't seen, the latest
includes Betty Eappler and Pat Davis two comely misses' who not only deliver the mail but select the
jive heard over the loud speaker during the day. And then there's Edna Denis who's been expecting
hubby Joe home from the Army for so long. Well, he finally made it and this week ñnds Edna
home with "papa", after turning her mail route over to the afore mentioned gals. And just
to keep all the news good, here's some more; Bob Schaf f er is due home from the Navy on a short
furlough and then will report back to receive his discharge. Esther's not happy - not much. She's
selling two three cent stampa for a nickle this week. Anyway that's the way I heard it.
Sales & Advertising Departments
Spring is officially here and along with t - spring f ever. However, the Sales Department is
still hard at work, and to ighten the burden we have two new iirls . . . Julia Wright, whose husband
s a student at the University of Michigan . . . Becky Matson, whose husband .s also a student at the
University, having recently been discharged from the Naval Air Corps. We're glad to have both of you
with us and may your stay be long and pleasant. Carolyn Wilson is still pounding the keys and hoping
June will be the month that will see Ray on his way home. Thelma Fuller is buying her Easter outfit
centering it around a new pair of those precious nylons. Scuttlebutt has t that Thelma has lost 9
Ibs and is working hard on the lOth. Maurine (Woody) Plettner is still looking in vain for an
apartment. Can anyone offer any help? Earlyne came back bright and early Monday morning, tired and
happy after a weekend in Milwaukee, and is planning a weekend jaunt to Detroit. She is really
hitting the road these days. Has anyone noticed Jackie's new nylon hose these days? There're
seamless, I believe. Lucy Gridley is also sporting some nylons . . . where oh where do they get
them? Jackie, Doris. Ruth and their ever present better halfs did the night up right at the Top Hat
in Detroit. Congratulations Rudy ! Claire Royal hopes spring will bring some more exciting times.
Seems as if things are just a little dull. She is busy planning her summer vacation. Tahoe Lake,
maybe .... hm? Ann Kachula and Mary Luska survived dinner at the Strites'. One of the seven wonders
of the world. They brought back the report that Doris is a very good cook. Jo and Glenn Lease are
to hear f rom the Navy. Melba Bowden wishes we could be under that beeyoutiful Texas sky. Meiba
is leaving Texas soon to be with Adrián in New Orleans. Being true to her promise, everyone
in the sales department received a package of Fritos (Texas "potatoe chips" made with
corn). Thanks Melba ... we certainly enjoyed them. Madelyn Truesdell is in Kansas City waiting for
the bird (two motors with a f uil load of passengers). Lots of luck Madge. Our Salesmen are back at
the office again after attending the convention in Buffalo, and they sure look like victims of a
"Lost Week-end". A welcome addition to the Sales Department is Dudley J. Scholten,
formerly Lt. Col. A.S.A.A.F. and now in charge of legal affairs in the corapany. During his four
years of service Dudley covered every theatre of war spending the latter service days in Tokyo,
where according to a choice tale he raided a distillery for the local officer's club. Mr. B. has
gone on the water wagon . . . but I predict a good glass of scotch would make him climb off.

a former co-worker of ours, breezed in on a brief visit February 25th. She was enroute to Colorado
Springs with her Army husband. We all wish them the best of luck and hope it isn't too long before
we see her again. It shows it can be done! One fine Thursday we were all amazed to see Bob Ward
dashing around like mad and working like a beaver. About 4:30 someone mentioned that it was
Thursday. Bob's face feil a foot. He had finished his Friday's deadline work on Thursday.
