Looking At Argus
In the last issue of Argus Eyes, I commented on the enthusiastic reception of our products at the
Photographic Show in Chicago. I also emphasized that each of us had a big job ahead of us to make
this New Products Program a success. Since that time, practically everyone has been involved in one
way or another with some of the problems that come up in getting a new product started. One of the
greatest responsibilities each of us has in this connection is that of maintaining our standards for
quality. For years, Argus has held an excellent reputation with our consumers and dealers because of
the good quality of our products . One of the reasons that we are a leader in the 35mm field is this
standard of quality. This same standard will apply to our movie products. We expect to gain the same
stature in the amateur movie field as we have had in the 35mm field. For that reason the feature
article in this issue is based on our quality respons ibility. OUR CUSTOMERS ARE OUR BOSSES The
people who will buy new Argus products for the ir personal use must be assured that they are buying
a product which has an excellent appearance and is the best in performance. They must be offered a
product of which they will be proud because of its over-all quality. "Customer satisfaction and
pride of ownership" is more than an advertising phrase. We receive many letters complimenting
Argus for its product quality. For example, in a letter received recently, a customer writes:
"A few days ago I pur chas ed an Argus projector Model 300 after comparing five leading brands.
I selected the Argus chiefly because it gave a brighter and sharper picture than the others. The
slides seemed to come alive on the screen, even some I didn't think too well of when used in my old
projector. I decided to let you know thatl appreciate a good product. " (We get a few letters
of the other kind, too, but they1 re fortunately very much in the minority. ) The best thing that
can happen to ensure the growth of Argus and the security of our jobs is a successful New Products
Program. It bears repeating that much of the success
of this Program depends upon our efforts in the field of quality. Many of us perform jobs which
are delicate or precise, and which are most important in meeting the critical specifications of our
products. It is the sum of these individual efforts that produces the Argus product, superior in
appearance and performance. QUALITY IS UP TO THE INDIVIDUAL No amount of good advertising,
salesmanship, or design can ever replace each individuals own respon sibility for quality. It not
only affects the customer but it also affects each of us in his daily attitude toward his job. We
have more pride in our workmanship and accomplishment when we refuse to compromise with quality.
There are many ways we exercise our quality responsibility in a
crete, every-day manner. Some of these are: 1. Critical appraisal and inspection of our own work.
2. Suggestions that improve the quality of our products. 3. Recognition of ability to produce good
work. 4. Effective encouragement and aid by supervisión. 5. Cooperation in solving quality
problems. CURRENT BUSINESS REPORT We have now completed the first f our months of our calendar year.
These were the months in which we ran special close-out promotions on many of our products in order
to pave the way for sales of our new 1958 line. These promotions were quite successful and we have
been able to introduce our new products on schedule. Following the general trend of business
conditions, however, our sales volume this year is lower than it was last year and profits have been
depressed even more. Because of increasingly competitive conditions in the field, price
levéis of photographic products are trending downward. This means that we must continue to
opérate as efficiently as possible, avoiding unnecessary expenditures of any kind.
Sales Sea Action
Military Sales Manager, Ken True, recently returned from an exciting five-day south Atlantic
cruise aboard the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Lake Champlain C.V.S. 39 as a guest of Navy Sec retar y
Thomas Gates. Ken was hosted aboard ship by a longtime f riend Commander Walter Cooper who is Chief
gunnery officer of the Champlain. During the five days at sea, Ken watched the task force run
through sub chasing and anti-aircraft maneuvers. He was also treated to several helicopter flights
task forcé mail run and observation flights. While aboard he met and chatted with the
flagship officer of the force, Admiral Butts. Culminating the week-long adventure was a flight from
the carrier 300 miles at sea to Norfolk, Va. in a twin engined Gumman S2F search plane. This
experience was something of a first for both Ken and Argus, since it marks the first time a Navy
Department supplier has been a shipboard guest during operational maneuvers.

You Asked Andy
I see that the Company has announced a Stock Option Plan in which any and all employees may
particípate. At present, I donft know too much about the Plan except that it is going to give
me a chance to buy shares of ownership in the Company I work for. Never thought of it before but
this practically makes me my own boss. Don't know if FU like that arrangement. Anyway, getting back
to the Plan, all of us will be getting detailed information on its operation and how we go about
buying, etc., and any other information pertinent to the matter. Incidentally, one detail I do know
about the Plan is that we can use payroll deduction to buy. Thatrs for me! "HELP WANTED"
Those words would do big things in Detroit these days and Fm hoping I can get similar results at
Independence Lake. Herman Bauer who is again overseeing the Recreation Clubfs projects this year
tells me that a list of things to do will be posted at the Lake so that anyone in a working mood
will not be at a loss for projects to keep him busy. BON VOYAGE Checking around recently, I found
that nine people from Argus are intending to make the European Tour flight with 71 other Sylvania
employees. They leave Willow Run on Friday, July 18 and return Sunday, August 3rd. Between those
dates, the group will visit Rome, Florence, Venice, Paris and Brussels. All this for a handsomely
low price. Several members of the group have promised pictures for a later issue of the
"Eyes". ▼ ▼ ▼
1957 Store Sales Lead All Other Divisions
The calendar year of 1957 saw a substantial increase in our Employee Store sales. The increase in
fact, approached the 100% mark with sales t o t a 1 i n g $113,759.12.
"spouse Inspired Ideas"
The following is directed to the wives and husbands of Argus employees . Our cuggestion committee
is interested in all kinds of suggestions and particularly those that offer a cost-cutting solution
to a production or maintenance problem. How many times have you heard your spouse say, "If they
would only ask me " or nIf they would only listen to me " All employees have ideas on how
the Company can improve its operation. Well, the next time he or she comes up with one of these
comments (or any other mild type brainstorm), you just pull out the suggestion blank accompanying
this issue of the Eyes and say, "All right, kiddo, here's our chance! Write it down, right now,
and let's find out just what it Tsworth. " The suggestion committee is not prepared to
arbitrate just how you and your spouse should split up the award, but they presume a workable
agreement can be reached.
March & April Suggestions Awards Total $1082.98
$405.85 has been paid to Harold LfEsperence on a new product idea. Harold collected another
$14.50 award for an idea to re-claim files. $129.76 Denny O'Hare received this award for suggesting
the elimina - of an operation on a screw used on the C-4 and C-44 cameras. Other recent awards
include: $74.74 Iva Schram Dept. 24 $12.50 Margaret Sargent Dept. 48 57.39 Ken Hubbell 10 12.00 Stan

Safety Pays... So Argus Helps Pay For Your Safety
Pictured here is Lauren Lutz, Dept. 28 with Safety Engineer, Wayne Willeke, discussing the merits
of the two safety items Lauren recently purchased. The cost of his prescription ground glasses and
the steel-toed safety shoes were paid in part by the Company. This same service is available to any
employee who has need of the protection offered by safety glasses or safety shoes or both.
Fire Brigade Organized
The formulation of a Fire Brigade here at Argus will do a great deal to insure the safety of
every employee. Each department has two brigade members who are in most cases that departmentTs
supervisors. Brigade members are receiving special instructions (see photo) in all phases of fire
prevention and emergency evacuation procedure. As part of this accelerated program, fire drills will
be conducted periodically in which all employees will participate.
Sylouette At World's Fair
The Home Electronics División recently announced that the U.S. Government has picked their
radically new "Sylouette" TV Console to exhibit at the WorldTs Fair currently in progress
at Brussels, Belgium. This fine new design has captured the imagination of the American public in
the few short months it has been on the market and our competition has already answered with sets of
similar design. However, without Sylvania's exclusive feature Halolight, the competition thus f ar
is a compromise on our design at best. The TV set División is particularly proud of the fact
that this is the only black and white TV set dis-_ played in the U.S. Exhibit. They
like to think of it as the only thing really new in TV, even newer than color.
Irv Halman Elected J.c.c. National Director
Irv Halman (Pur chas ing) was elected to one of six national directors posts for the Michigan
Jaycees at the organization's state convention held in Grand Rapids, May 16 through 18. Irv has been
active in the Jaycees for over 6 years, serving in many local and state posts. He is a past
President of the Ann Arbor Chapter and a former member of the local board of directors. Irvs wife,
Rose, has just completed a term as State President of J.C.C. Auxiliary.
Recreation Club News
Independence Lake Hecreation area is now open for the summer season. The area caretaker has been
on the job for over a month cleaning, painting and in general making ready for what will likely be
the busiest seasons the area has ever experienced. A steady increase in the use of the Lake site by
their families has occurred every year since the Company leased the property six years ago.
Mány changes are being planned by the Employee Recreation Club to improve the already
existing facilties which will make the area an even more desirable place for employees and their
families to spend leisure hours during the summer months.
New Club Officers Assume Position For 1958-59
During the last week of April, employees elected a full staff of officers and representatives to
opérate the Employee Recreation Club for the 1958-59 activities year. New officers are John
Borger son (Dept. 49), President, Bill Betke (Dept. 49), Vice President, Jesse Forshee (Dept. 81),
Secretary and Ralph Merrell (Dept. 70), Treasurer. Departments are grouped in areas of geographical
location with one representative for every one hundred
employees. In cases where a department is separated from the rest of the plant such as Shipping
Department at South State Street, a representative is chosen for the group regardless of their
numerical size. This operating committee plans and carries out all the Club's functions which
include the picnics, dances and the sponsors hip of the sports leagues. One of their most important
functions is planning the use of the 150 acre Recreation area at Independence Lake. Most of the
club's revenue is spent in running this area because more members make use of the facility than any
other function sponsor ed by the club.
New Keys And Cards
With the purchase of a 195S-59 Recreation Club Card employees may obtain a key which will permit
them to gain entrance to the Lake area. The locks have been changed from last year so that new keys
will be required. The old keys may be exchanged for new keys through Club representatives. Employees
who do not now have keys may obtain one by depositing 35? with their Club representative.
Club cards sell for two dollars ($2.00) and like the keys, may be obtained f rom Club
representatives. The card entitles the member to particípate in any or all club functions,
and the Lak e Privilege Card which is issued at no extra cost when a membership is purchased,
permits the employees1 family to use the Lake area in his absence.
The word quality is one heard frequently by Argus employees. A great deal has been said and even
more has been written to explain the importance of quality in the manufacture of our products. The
Photographic equipment field is noted for high quality standards, and any company intending to
improve its competitive pos ition must necessarily employ even higher quality standards as one means
of capturing a bigger share of this market. While any number of tangible elements affect the
establishment and maintenance of quality the end result is by and large an attitude which quality or
lack of quality c reates in the dealers and consumers mind. Pride of ownership and the sense of
value received is largely the result of the manufacturers1 attention to quality. Our concern with
quality is gene rally in the area of manufacturing, but what of our attitude towards the subject as
consumers. By asking what quality means to someone as a consumer, we can see another side of the
story. Still another viewpoint can be obtained by asking employee, "How do you contribute to
Argus quality?" We asked the two foregoing questions of various persons and believe that their
answers offer "A New Look at a Big Weapon in the Battle for Business."
What Quality Means To Me...
...AS AN ARGUS SALESMAN
Of all the things that help to sell photographic equipment, quality and price are by far the most
important. My customers are dealers and they know quality when they see it. They are also quick to
point out any lack of quality. I must compete for sales on a quality level with cameras selling for
many dollars more than Argus cameras. However, the Argus lifetime guar antee gives me a tooi for
selling that many of my competitors must sell without. It provides my dealers with assurance that he
has only to sell an Argus product and we (ARGUS) will stand behind it because we feel and can prove
that the quality of our products is second to none.
...AS A CAMERA DEALER As a dealer I'm expected to stand behind the products I sell, even though I
have no control of the manufacturer's policies on quality. However, I do carry photographic
equipment made by many different companies, and I have substantial inñuence over what make of
product my customers buy. It doesn't take a scholar to see that I would much rather sell a camera
that I know will be trouble-free than one which is likely to be brought back by an unhappy customer
who holds me responsible for any defects in the camera I sold to him.
...AS A HOMEMAKER I believe that most homemakers want quality but must gear those wants to the
price they can pay. To me quality itself is a bargain. ín buying durable goods, I look for
the brand name products and check their guarantee as a means of determining quality. What does
quality mean to me? Well, I guess it means the chance to enjoy troublefree service from any item I
As a bilí payer, I want to pay for an item or service just once, not three or four times
because of breakdowns caused by poor quality. It seems to me that every manufacturer should be
interested enough in his product to make it right to start with, and to stand behind it once it is
sold. Those producers interested in profit alone usually have a poor product to offer by comparison
and this is one reason brand ñames are usually my best buys.
How I Contributed To Argus Quality
Project Engineering My contribution to quality at Argus has been made by working with the
personnel in all phases of Manufacturing, Engineering and Purchasing. The quality problems that
arise during each day may be in the line of improving an individual part of the function of the
final product. The fine cooperation received from each individual I contact helps me contribute and
share in the fine quality of the product that is sent on to the dealer and the customer.
Thressell Conley, Assembier I would guess that a good many of the C4 and C44 cameras in the hands
of Argus customers passed through my work station on their way to completion. Maybe my personal
touch on them would make little difference to the person who buys the camera, but I do know that
without my efforts in maintaining the quality standards set up for my work that same camera owner
might be darned unhappy with Argus. It's fun to be out somewhere and see a total stranger busy
taking pictures with a C44 that I probably helped put together. and it is doubly satisfying to feel
that this same stranger is happy with his camera be cause of its fine quality which is a result of
my efforts together with those of my coworkers .
George Navarre, Screw Machine Supervisor You know it is a long way from my operation to the
finished product, and there are times when it is hard to visualize what importance a certain close
dimensión that's giving me trouble has on the finished product. On the other hand, I do know
that specifications are not set arbitrarily and that the attention I give to my work is one step in
"Building a Better Mouse Trap" as the saying goes. One bad part isn't likely to hurt me or
the company to any degree , but a simple pyramid of one bad part here and there on a continuing
basis would probably help to discourage customers in wholesale lots and this is unhealthy for both

Greens Keeper Hoeft
A sure sign that the warm weather is here to ótay is Ozzie Hoeft at the helm of our lawn
maintenance equipment. Keeping the greenery green at Argus is a big job and Ozzie faces daily
problems that would make
weekend lawn trimmers want to fight. Contending with foot traffic that would do justice to an
infantry platoon is just one of the woes besetting Mr. Hoeft. So, tread lightly friend, lightly. ▼
Like a good many physical malfunctions, diabetes may be present in a person's system long bef ore
its effects are feit. It is important then, to find and treat this condition before the effects

employees determine their diabetic status will be conducted by nurse Fran Watterworth during June.
Details of the program will be distributed soon.
Five forty foot trailer units and two Chervolet tractors have been recently leased by this

How To Live Trough The Summer... And Like It
What is YOUR greatest annoyance during the hot summer months? Although "It ain't the heat,
but the humidity" has been quoted so often as to become a national folk-saying, a recent survey
shows that the American public bears up under the heat and humidity bette r than it does the too
familiar attention of f lies and mosquitoes , and the constant slamand-bang of screen doors .
Because these insects are known transmitters
of dangerous diseases, State and Federal Government Health Departments have long conducted
research on insecticides. Recently, the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare announced
an insecticide, DDVP, which is believed to be more effective than the earlier DDT. Many insect
strains have developed which are resistant to the old DDT, and also the new DDVP is considered less
potentially harmful to human beings. It is important to take steps to destroy the breeding places of
flies and mosquitoes, and equally important to keep them out of the house. Screen doors and Windows
that do not fit snugly, or have torn screening, are as baá as no screens at all. A screen
door that doesn't close completely, or that opens and closes with a slam and a bang, is a hazard to
the nerves of the householder on a par with the buzz and bite of the mosquito and the shocking sight
of flies hovering over the family's food.
Did you know that a single pair of flies can produce 191 septillion offspring in one summer, if
all lived? (That number, 191 septillion, written out looks like this:
191,000,000,000,000,000000,000,000-191 followed by 24 zeros.) This estimate was made public by the
National Pest Control Association.
1. Use space-sprays or aerosol bombs in the house. 2. Use the new super -repellent chemicals on
skin and clothing. 3. Use residual sprays that will stick on screens, porches, and garbage cans. 4.
Play safe with 16-mesh-to-the-inch screens on doors and Windows to keep out all insects. 5. Hang
screen doors to open outward, and equip each with a pneumatic-type door closer and a push-pull catch
to insure quiet closings that stay closed. 6. Keep water f rom accumulating in the tin cans, eaves
troughs, and street gutters. 7. Empty bird baths or chicken watering pans at least once a week. 8.
Put screening over open cisterns, and tightly cover cesspools, septic tanks, and rain barrels. 9.
Use larvicides on standing water in pools or ponds. 10. Stock ornamental pools with gold fish or top
swimming minnows. 11. Use fly traps, fly papers, fly poisons, fly electrocution devices, and fly
swatters in the homes. 12. Apply manure, when used, thinly on field and lawns to prevent f lies
breeding. Store manure in fly-tight boxes or pits, and treat it with borax, calcium cyanide, or
