WHEREAS it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the Providence of Almighty God, to obey his
will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor; and whereas
both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me "to recommend to the
people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging
with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an
opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness;" Now,
therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the twenty-sixth day of November next, to be devoted
by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the Beneficent
Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering
unto him our sincere and humble thanks for his kind care and protection of the people of this
country, previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable
interpositions of his providence, in the course and conclusión of the late war; for the great
degree of tranquillity. union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and
rational manner which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our
safety and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted; for the civil and
religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful
knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors, which he has been pleased to
confer upon us. And, also, that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and
supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations, and beseech him to pardon our national and
other transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our
several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our national government a blessing to
all the people, by constantly being a government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly
and faithfully executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such
as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to
promote the knowledge and practice of true religión and virtue, and the increase of science,
among them and us; and, generally, to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as
he alone knows to be best. Given under my hand, at the city of New York, the third day of October,
in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and eighty-nine.

information concerning the company's business. Beverly Bullis of the Personnel department makes sure
that news is gathered and that pictures are obtained and arranged in readable fashion for
publication about the lOth of each month. Sam Schneider and Gerry Davenport will furnish the
pictures, unless they are to be made with a pen or pencil, in which case Marie Barbier and Ed Palmer
are called upon. Charles A. Barker, "Jimmy" to all. will be Art Director and Art
Consultant. The profile will be done by Harry Rookes. Harold L'Esperance, Quality Control Inspector,
is the artist who did the original etching on the cover of our Thanksgiving issue of Argus Eyes.
"Doe" Benson has two new new correspondente, Jim Rohrbaugh and Ed Drutchas. Jim and Ed
attended the University of Michigan before coming to Argus. Mrs. Beryl McGee is a new member on our
office forcé. She has a IS year old daughter. Other new members are: Dick Kelly who was with
the Infantry and Engineers for 2 years during the last war. Marcella Hale Bennett. Marcella became a
bride last August. Hubby Bill works at Van Boven's. Johnny Dehn formerly worked at Vokar in Dexter.
Johnny's wife, Marie, works on the 21 line.
Plans are being mapped in the Centering Department to go deer hunting on November IS. We would
also like to take this opportunity to welcome the 10 new men who will start work in Centering on
November 16, if the plans go through. The cali of the Redwood's has been heard quite often lately
around here. "Warm Stone" Gurd is beginning to talk like Charles C. Charles ever since he
put in 45 minutes in a Piper Cub. The atom bomb sounded like a firecracker compared to
"Hips" Eskin's voice booming at Janci, and vice versa. The Centering bowling team has a
new line when asked about the low averages of certain individuals. It seems they are only bowling
for their health anyway.
Community Chest And Its Varied Service To Us
The community chest campaign got off to a flying start Monday, October 20, under the able
leadership oí Roy ttiscock. Francés Watterworth. Harvey Bennett. Wilhio Kelly, Joe
Dianetti. Les Carlson, Dick Dorow, William Besenick and Herb Pfabe as captains, with their
sub-captains, Carol Haines, Adeline Opheim, Wilma McGarry, Ann Thayer, Walter Root, Arthur Danner,
Robert Alian, Anna Kneiper, Cal Foster, Paul Haines, Russ Warren, Leona Breisch, Betty Wrathell,
Daniel Noeker, Herman Bauer, Bob Ward, Virginia Hurst, Vi Tyler, Shirley Wangberg, Marcelena Maerz,
Kirk Fisher, John Albertson, Bernie Merritt, Nina Fahrner, Thelma Hopper, Anna Thorsch, Norman
Downing, Kathryn Russell, Lewis Davis, George Carver, Doris Lyons, and Julius Jacques. Contributions
were solicited and tallied.
Argus' quota for the drive was $25Oü. Through cash and payroll deductions our contribution
to the fund was $2500. The company matched that dollar for dollar, making our total contribution
$5,000. Often the question rises in people's minds, "What does this Community Chest mean to
us?" Aside f rom the f act that it contributes to the fifteen agencies, which through their
services make our community the kind we want to live in, we, as a company have found these services
to be very useful. Thirty-six families were referred to the Family Service this year. Perry Nursery
School has proved to be of service to our mothers with children of pre-school age. Also the
cáncer clinic has been of service. These agencies are always at our service. By supporting
them, we help to make better community life in Ann Arbor.
Congratulations to Barbara Smith on her engagement to James Helfrich. No date has been set for

Brides to be - leanne Baker and Helen Fraser have both been given surprise bridal showers. They both
received beautiful gifts.
For Outstanding Annual Report
Argus, Incorporated, Ann Arbor camera manufacturen won a bronze plaque for second place in the
class two división of the Detroit Trust Company's annual report survey of 1946 industrial
statements to employees and stockholders. Shown here, left to right, are: Robert D. Howse, Argus
president; C. A. Barker, Argus Art director and designer of the prize-winning report, and Selden B.
Daume, president, Detroit Trust Company. The class two división in which Argus placed
included entries from all Michiigan manufacturers employing between 1,000 and 2,000 workers. About
400 industrial concerns in six classes were represented in the state-wide contest.
1-2-3-4 Is Easy Abc Plan Of Exposure
Briefly, the idea is an A-B-C rhethod of figuring exposure without charts or gadgets. It works
this way. There are only four kinds of light conditions outdoors and four basic types of outdoor
subject. This makes it easy. You rate light condition this way: 4- Brilliant Sun Black Shadows 3-
Clouded Sun Weak Shadows 2 Gray Sun Traces of Shadow 1 No Sun No Shadows Then you rate subjects this
way: 4 - All Sky. like over water or beach 3 - Mostly Sky. like over landscapes 2 - Some Sky. like
average pictures 1 - No Sky but not in the shade All you do is take light condition and subject and
multiply the numbers. The result is the f stop to use. Set the shutter at 1100 with film like
Panatomic X or 1200 with film like Verichrome, Plus X or Supreme. That's all there is. Easy? It sure
is. And it works, too. ■ - Argns Dealer Talk
Argus Pilots Announce New Flying Club
The inactive status of the old Argus Aero Club grievously feit by many of the former members and
other flying enthusiasts, has led to the organization of a new flying club. The AFODAFC (short for
AOHHFOTDAPFC, Argus One Half Hour Flying On The Day Af ter Payday Flying Club) charges no initiation
fee, no dues, and has no officers or bylaws. It endeavors to keep Argus pilots flying primarily by
specifying a time for them to do so, and by giving the man incentive and a cost sharing passenger.
It was feared that otherwise too many Argus Pilots would feel that to continue flying would be too
expensive and consequently would ground themselves and eventually loose their hard earned licenses.
The new club has senior and junior members. The seniors have a private pilot's license or better,
the juniors don't. As the name of the club indicates, flying activity is limited to one half hour on
the day after payday. If the weather turns sour, they wait until the next good day. Each pilot takes
a passenger (junior member) for a ride in the least expensive type of airplane available and the
cost is shared equally by the two. The only requirement for membership is participation. Present
senior members are : Richard Foster, Jan Vanden Broek, Verne Nelson and Don Feder. Among the juniors
are: Rodney Mast, Larry Hoffman. Jim Harvey, Don Jennings, John Lyman, Beverly Knight and June
Preston. All those who are interested are invited to join.
Announce Poor Man's Color Tour
AFO-DAFC has made an announcement of vast importance. Not to be outdone by the recent color tour
sponsored by the State Aeronautics Board (to observe the beautiful f all colors) of the northern
península, these doughty pioneers have organized a "Poverty Pilots" color tour of
epoch making proportions. On October 31, these "hoboes of the sky" will man their trusty
Piper Cubs and depart on the following intrepid itinerary. (It might be able to add that the
numerous and complicated navigational calculations necessary for the successful completion of this
journey will be computed beforehand.) Take-off time is scheduled for 12 :1S P.M. from the Ann Arbor
Municipal Airport. All ships will rendezvous at 1000 feet and after taking hearings will proceed to
the Ypsilanti Airport, observing enroute the beauties of the
tryside. (Flight time- 2.75 minutes.) After a brief rest with refreshments, they will then wing
their way to Delhi Mills, passing over the beauteous city of Ann Arbor with its multitude of scenic
wonders and Barton Pond, queen of the ponds of southern Michigan. (Flight time - 9.75 minutes.) From
Delhi Mills they will proceed to the Washtenaw Airport, enjoying the colorful canvas of Mother
Nature. There the planes will land to give the pilots a smoke, a chance to stretch their legs, and
to check the weather ahead. (Flight time 5.37 minutes.) The last leg of the flight, back to Ann
Arbor Municipal will be over the scenic route encompassing the fast-growing western section of Ann
Arbor, the stadium, and golf courses. (Flight time 12.63 minutes, total time 30.00 min.) And so, as
the noon-hour passes into history, this historie flight will draw to a close. The loyal members of
the AFODAFC will wend their ways back to work with a delightful memory to cherish, and their spirit
bolstered with thoughts of the payday to come.

What Does Thanksgiving Mean To You?
?)iis is what it means to : Forrest Graves - It's turkey, yes, and pumpkin pie Too much, in fact,
to eat. That often marks Thanksgiving day And these things are a treat. But more than that a day to
give Our thanks, it seems to me, For home and family, work and play In a land that's blessed and
free. Laura Egeler - When Thanksgiving time comes I feel humble and thankful that I am able to work
and live a happy, interesting life, to ënjoy my many friends and all the good things in the
world, and to feel ashamed that I griped so much the last year. Bill Bone- A day on which to pause
and give thanks for the many things that we enjoy due to the efforts of past generations. Mary
Wingrove - Thanksgiving is a day which I look forward to with great pleasure. It has always been a
day for a family gathering, and a day in which to give thanks for the many blessings bestowed upon
us throughout the year. Brice Bennett - Thanksgiving I look forward to for a day of rest and
relaxation. Also a day of thanks for all the blessings that have come my way. Clara Dickinson -
Thanksgiving is a day for us to look back with a feeling of humility and give thanks for the
opportunities and blessings we have had in the past year. Helen Kennedy - Thinking of Thanksgiving
through this world turmoil, makes one shudder. If we would stop a moment from our hur! ried tasks
and concéntrate on the lovelier things of life and what they mean to us, we all would have
something to be thankful for. One of the lovely pictures to me is Mother bringing in the feurkey and
ether goodies. lihur Christ-
Thanksgiving 1947 Have you sat in contemplation Whilst old memories grasped your mind?
Scènes of childhood's recollections, Or dreams and days left f ar behind? Can you see your
dear old grand-ma? And your grand-dad, too, my dear? Can you see why they left Europe, And their f
olks whom they held dear ? Can you see the tears of parting, As they left for parts unknown, With
their hopes and dreams and visions, Naught but these, just these alone? In their dreams they had a
visión, Of you and all your kin, Living in a place of refuge, Far from the "Throne
Command" of kings. They had nerve and "guts" aplenty, To leave their native sod, To
brave the sea and all its perils, Or a new land f resh from God ! Here they found a land of plenty,
Untouched fields to plow and sow, And to reap the greatest harvest, That ever man did know. Here
they found true, blessed freedom, To worship their own kind of God. Here they voted to public
office, Men like them who plowed the sod ! Here they formed their courts and councils, And a
constitution, too, To protect our every interest, With provisions sound and true ! So now on this
Thanksgiving Day I thank with fond Thanksgiving, No god nor goblin queer; I thank our dear Grand
sires, For all that we hold dear. 'm Ipld I swear by all held sacred, To protect this heritage, And
to guard its every passage, From transgressors, dumb or sage. So give thanks with me, all you who
read, On this Thanksgiving day, To find the Truth in all that's said, And guard our destiny!

don't worry folks, she's just talking about materials and furniture for her new home If any of you
good people hear of a small, medium or so-so apartment for rent, please teil Carolyn T. We don't
want the little gal to be worrying about where she's going to hang her hat this winter. Just found
out that Bonnie would like to go to college next year. "Going to be a teacher," I asked.
"Nope, going to have fun," says she. Bill A. hopes the old adage about "sow and ye
shall reap" will come true. He's been working like mad on his lawn these days and hopes, I'm
sure, that his handiwork, and backwork will not have been in vain. Practically every noon you can
ses Dorothy and Margaret G. on a buying spree. These future brides and bridesmaids. If Ann K. keeps
on winning the football pool she can retire. Pretty lucky girl I'd say. We know Jeanne went to
Milwaukee for the week-end to visit friends. We're anxious to hear all about her trip. How about it
Jeanne? Herb Hall's luggage is surely taking a shellacking on these weekly trips to Sandusky. Hope
he finds a place in Ann Arbor soon so he can settle down. Del F. said she had to hurry home one noon
last week. "To get hubby's lunch?" I asked. ';Gosh no," she replied, "to see if
my new refrigerator is there." I know Nancy likes to cook and believe she's a pretty good one,
but 111 bet she won't have pork roast on her menu for some time to come. Bet Dick C. would be in the
top of lis glory if he could attend every good Dlay and concert, and for more strenuous diversion,
horse-back riding. Agnes attends a sewing class and is so enthused about it that she talks and
thinks patterns, materials and sewing machines. Keep your ears peeled for the birthday song again as
Joy is having a ñrthday soon. Can't stop them, can we? Elizabeth has been looking rather Dale

you do contact Marcie as she has use 'or one, and a carpenter would help Lee also in providing for a
Laura is also on the housing list. Oh, well, if nothing turns up you can always use the tent.
Last Monday morning Dorothy M. came in smiling brightly and no wonder - she was sporting a new ten
dollar h air-do, or was it twenty? Judy is so anxious to get into her new home that she and her
husband have been doing a little carpenter work, plumbing, etc. Such talent !
Kelly has been running himself ragged trying to get extra ticlcets for the Michigan-Minnesota
game. Guess you'll have to buy out the place next year, Kelly. Janet is another of our quiet girls
but just wait until she becomes more acquainted. I am sure she will make news then. I suppose Cal
has been spending his recent weekends filling his basement with produce from his garden. I heard it
was a very successful venture - the garden that is. Miss Lundahl is very busy these days getting her
Christmas packages out to people overseas. How does she do it? Jack is very busy these days
concentrating on figures - football scores, that is.
Lines From The Camera Line
There is always a time On the camera line When you see the report Come out awfully short. Busy as

Cigars were passed out recently by Steve Piatkowski, when Jeanine Marie made her appearance on

We wish to welcome Burt Lutz, George Fisher, Harold Cramer and Bob Craver into the Model Shop.
With production stepped up a nine and a half hour work day, it's pretty tough getting news out of
tired people. We have quite a few new faces of late, but not a dull moment with Gordon Clark and
John Arnet. Norman Downing of Manchester is also a newcomer. Ron Cruze went all out the other day
when he committed himself by saying that if he ever won the check pool he would take everyone to
Schwaben. Now we are worried as to whether Schwaben will hold us all. We were sorry to lose Jerry
Schira. Jerry was always giving out with the oíd army cali 'sound off." Now we are
wondering if he was really scared that we would all sound off together, and left before it did
happen. Good luck anyway to Jerry. With all of us worrying about Christmas coming up and saving for
it, what does Liilicm Jedele do but start on her next years vacation. Some people are lucky, ha
The 1947-48 Argus bowlng season is now six weeks old, and already it is shaping up as if it might
turn out to be the best year we have had. At this date not one of the entries has made any really
appreciable showing, and it seems certain that many teams will occupy the top position before the
winner is established this coming May. At the time of writing the Skunks are leading the pack, but
their margin is only two games, and are only three games in front of the team in eighth place. From
this early showing of the teams it appears that the league is the most even that it has been since
our league was first organized. The second división is also closely bunched, and after each
week's results are posted, many changes are appearing on the scoreboard. In the first few weeks this
year Camera assembly started out as if it meant to tie up the title early. After this spurt,
however, the assemblers have found plenty of trouble and are now just above the .500 mark. Other
teams in the league have had their nights, but there is not an entry in the league that boasts
enough strength stamp itself as the favorite. If this condition continúes through the bowling
season it should prove to be the most exciting we have enjoyed. In the past few seasons a few of the
entries furnished most of the competition, and as a result toward the latter part of the schedule
most of the place positions had been pretty well settled. In the individual department 'Hankus
Pancus" Millage has giveti the bowlers something to shoot at in the high single game Hank had
his first ball solidly in the pocket, but was "tapped" and lost the ten pin. He missed his
spare, but then strung eight in a row, spared in the tenth and would up with a 2S7 game. Only on one
occasion has high single game gone over this mark, so there is a good chance that Hank's mark will
stand up for the season. Teams have been unable to string together their highest games; but when the
bowlers find the groove, the bowling will improve and we shall have some high marks at which to
shoot. Everything points to a close race this year, and it should be this way right down to the
I Football fever is at its highest pitch with the Wolverines of Michigan enjoying the most
successful season that they have had in the past ten years. Michigan is now riding the crest and is
the unanimous choice as the number one team in the country. The interest of the fans centers itself
in the race for the Big Nine Title. It is certain that the title will be decided on November 1 at
Champaign when Michigan tangles with Illinois. Wolverine supporters have been waiting a year for
this encounter. These fans are smarting from the 13-9 defeat inflicted by the Illini last year. This
defeat lost the Wolverines the title and a trip to the Rose Bowl. The rabid Michigan fans are
positive that this will not happen this year, and that this New Year's Day will find the Maize and
Blue of Michigan displaying to the West Coast the offense that has made it the most potent team in
the nation. With Michigan having the best team that they have had since Crisler took over ten years
ago, and with Notre Dame being as potent as ever, the arguments as to which is the better team is an
every day issue at Argus. In a Michigan stronghold the Irish supporters are outnumbered, but a long
ways from being out-argued. A game between these two great teams would be a natural and would have
more appeal than all the bowl games combined. In behalf of Notre Dame it must be stated that they
have expressed their willingness to play this game. A meeting between the two is the only way to
determine which is entitled to be called the National Champion.
What If It Were So
Her Patience Was Rewarded
Mrs. Radford was guest of honor recently, at a birthday party held at Beverly Bullis'. After the
buffet dinner was served, Mrs. Radford opened her lovely gifts. Barb Titus had a birthday dinner
also, in "Lestis Eatery." She had completely forgotten all about the date she was so busy
hiring people for the third and fourth floors. We have discovered new talent in our midst - the
"whipper outer of birthday poetry - Watterworth" they cali her.
Have you by any chance dropped by the Plant I First Aid between 5 :30 and midnight? If not, stop
in and meet "Bill Newlander," our new medie, who takes over for the evening shift. Vi
hopes to be back in the old Plant II First Aid one of these days - providing no more uncharted
springs, pipes, etc. are found. Maybe they could forget about the tank and convert the hole into a
swimming pool-skating rink combination and let First Aid stay where it is.
Ross Wilson is home sick with the ñu. Here's hoping he feels better and will be back to
work soon. We all miss you Ross.
If you have seen Jim O'Devlin standing on his head of late, don't be too alarmed. This is merely
Jim's way of showing his loyalty to the Irish. He says he will do anything for Notre Dame: however,
when asked to jump out the window he refused. Very unsporting of him wasn't it? A Michigan fan
wouldn't hesitate a moment.
We are sorry to hear that Betty Combs is leaving us soon. She is going to Arizona, where her
husband has a job, then they are going to California. We are going to miss you, Betty, but wish you
the best of luck. Sam McGarry has postponed his trip to California until January first. It might
have something to do with the Rose Bowl Game. Vern Powell celebrated his twentyfirst birthday a few
weeks ago with his family and friends in Toledo. When he returned to work Clara Bermes gave him a
miniature birthday cake with one candle. Probably she knew that the ñrst twenty years didn't
mean a thing to Vern - it's that added year that makes him so happy. This is personal, everyone, so
don't read it. (Mei, rumor has it that you were seen willingly getting into a car with seven girls.
You had better be careful because, if it got around, it wouldn't be good for your reputation as a
woman-hater.) A parting thought : if you like chop suey, Ruth Burns can show you how to eat it with
chop sticks. She says it Lakes a few hours longer, but ís very economical because that way
you can have your lunch and dinner all at one fitting.
Did you see Rocky's new (?????) Pontiac of '35 vintage? Guess he's regressing ha ving just sold
that '37 Packard. We're going to miss Louise (Lois) Palmer. She is returning to teaching - Sth grade
in Plymouth. We shouldn't feel too bad since we are all aware of the dire situation concerning the
lack of teachers. Ginny Hurst's new aide is Beverly Nordhoek. Her hubby is a University student, too
- making 4 girls in our department who are student veterans' wives. Beverly's husband is in
Engineering - as is Vivían Pound's Alian, who is a Sr. in Aero. Jan Johnson's Bill is a
Junior in Medical School and Colette Darnell's better half is a Business Admn. Sr. Don Koch still
isn't disclosing when he'll take that fatal step, but with all the overtime he is putting in he must
be saving dollars for something.
