Talking About Argus
It gives me real pleasure to write my first article for Argus Eyes. I am looking forward to the
opportunity of communie ating with everyone at Argus through the medium of regular articles.
Inaddition, I expect to frequently talk directly to as many Argus people as possible. Nevertheless,
It would not be feasible to cover the many topics that are of importance to us all in individual,
face to face discussions with each of you. I believe that these articles will fill a real need that
cannot be met any other way. I would like to say that Iamvery happy to be back with the Argus
División. I do not believe that anyone can spend more than twenty years of their working life
with a fine organization like Argus without having their work become a major part of their life. Af
ter being away for two years, Icertainly know that Argus is a very important part of my life. I have
really missed the familiar scènes and all my friends at Argus. I am not only glad to be back,
but I can sincerely say that my deep attachment to the Argus División leads me to desire,
above all else, that the división shall grow andprosper. While I missed my Argus associations
in the two years that I have been away, I did have many interesting and challenging experiences. I
am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Don Mitchell on Sylvania's new product programs
and with Bob Lewis in the operation of the Semiconductor División. I am equally pleased to
have had the opportunity to meet and work with many of the fine
people in other Sylvania divisions. We can all be proud to be a part of a company which has so
many capable people who are dedicated to the growth and progres s of their divisions and the Company
as a whole. We have a real responsibility to live up to the high standards of performance that are
set by our associates in Sylvania. GREAT DIVERSIFICATION AHEAD Sylvania has now joined with General
Telephone. This merger adds further strength and stability to the Sylvania picture. The new,
combined company, called General Telephone and Electronics, will be one of the world's great
industrial organizations with tremendous resources - not only in material assets, but in talented
men and women as well. It will be able to cover many fields. There will not be many subjects,
particular ly on the frontiers of modern science and living, that are not of interest to this new
company. Like Sylvania, General Telephone believes in decentralized operations. Sylvania will
continue to opérate as a separate corporation. The Argus División will continue to
opérate as a separate división of Sylvania as it has in the past two years. There will
be no change in our basic policies. We will continue our progressive personnel policies and our
fundamental dedication to the principie of recognizing each person as an individual and treating
everyone with the consideration and dignity due to every human being in a f ree society. ARGUS
SUCCESS IS UP TO US While we are part of an even larger Corporation, we must not forget that the
future success of the Argus División finally depends upon ourselves. The philosophy of
decentralization which gives us the freedom to conduct our división affairs in the manner
which we believe to be best requires that we assume the full responsibility for our future. This is
as it should be. No one can understand and
appreciate our problems as well as we can. We must solve our problems and work to build growth
and progress. Sylvania can only help us if we first help ourselves. I am looking forward to
discussing, in future articles , the many important problems and decisions that we must face.

correspond with vacation shutdowns at other Company locations.
Argus, Mary Lou, And Television
As Argus educational services consultant, Mary Lou Ander son may find herself on the threshhold
of a new career - a televisión star. Well, anyway, Mary Lou made her televisión debut
on WXYZ-TV's "House of Charm" program. She must have made a hit, though, because they had
her back a second time. Mary Lou has been demonstrating how easy it is to use Argus products such as
our new MatchMatic C3 color slide camera and the coupled exposure meter available on both our C33
and C44 models . An important part of Mary Lou's job is to edúcate the public to the fun and
re war ds that can be anybody's through simplified, modern photography. On televisión, she
told women audiences that they have the wonderful opportunity to use their cameras at home and
capture moments on film that the man of the house doesn't often get the chance to. She showed color
slides of some of these special moments available to women and also some photographs taken by the
Ann Arbor Camera Club.
Annual Dinner Snapshots
Eighteen charming Argusettes, with Thelma Burke as chairman, served as hostesses at the Annual
Employee Dinner held at the Michigan Union Ballroom on January 14. In spite of a severe snow storm,
500 Argus employees attended, while honored guests Don Mitchell and Bob Lewis arrived on time
despite a long bus ride from Cleveland after planes were grounded. Much of the credit for the
evening's success goes to Mary Burris, Employee Services Manager, who was in charge of making the
arrangements for the delicious dinner and decorating the tables so attractiveiy.
Bob Lewis Elected New Sylvania President
(Nice guys don't win ball games, but -- ) We Argusites should be pleased and happy to know that
Bob Lewis has recently been named President of Sylvania. And all ofuswhoworked with Bob can take
addedpleasure in knowing that nice guys can win ball games. To those who didn't enjoy the privilege
of knowing and working with Bob, his record as President of Argus speaks for itself. Bob was named
President in 1950 when Argus sales were around$5million. When he left us in 1958, sales were around
$21 million! Bob, his wife Alice, and their eight children now live in Darien,
Connecticut. As President oí' Sylvania, Bob succeeds Don G. Mitchell who will continue as
Chairman of the Board of Directors and President of the new General Telephone & Electronics
Corporation which has been formed by the merger of Sylvania and General Telephone Corporation.
Diplomas For John And Ted
It takes a lot of doing to squeeze in 8,000 hours of on-the-job training and off-the-job
studying, but John Kokinakes and Ted Steinback accomplished that feat to become graduated as
Journeymen Machine Repair men. The Bureau of Appr entices, Department of Labor, has awarded John and
Ted diplomas to certify and recognize them as skilled tradesmen. Over a period of approximately four
years, John and Ted have pursued this apprentice training course. Drafting, math, and shop theory
were some of the subjects studied and, of the 8,000 hours in the training program, John and Ted
spent 672 hours of related training through evening courses at Ann Arbor High School. Argus can be
especially proud of employees like John and Ted, not only because they took the time
and effort to better themselves but also because they were selected on a competitive basis
through interviews and special tests.
As Joe Detweiler and the gradúate apprentices discuss the diplomas, John's father, Andy
Kokinakes of Material Handling and Trucking, beams proudly. Erv Braatz, Foreman of the Maintenance
Department, and Jim Fraser, both members of the joint Apprentice Committee, look on approvingly.
Jim Rohrbaugh Wins Salesmens' Applause
Jim Rohrbaugh, Product Service Manager was honored at the recent Sales Meeting by receipt of The
Ar Ion B. Clarke Memorial Award for 1958. This
award, given in the name ofthefirst Argus sales man is made annually by Argus field salesmen to
"that person in the home office whose talents, inspiration and selflessness have made the Argus
salesman's lot a happier one." As manager of the Product Service Department, Jim is responsible
for dealer and consumer correspondence as well as servicing photographic products under the Argus
lifetime guar antee. He has been with Argus since 1947.
Five Maintenance Employees Retire
Maintenance Department lost five of its employees to retirement early this year. They are Harvey
Switser, cleaner, Olga Hintz,cleaner, Ozzie Hoeft, maintenance utility man, Ernie Blomquist,
cleaning supervisor, and Harry Kaufman, electrician. Department 20 also lost Eva Baker, optical
assembier to retirement. We will all miss the cheerful smiles and fine cooperation we have received
from these employees. When asked what their plans for the future were, Harvey said he plans to buy a
farm and raise chickens. We wish him much success in his venture. Olga said she was going to visit
her many friends and catch up on her card playing which she has so sadly neglected of late. Most of
the others replied that they were going to do all of the things they never had time to do when they
were working. Argus wishes them all the best for the future .
Dick Caley Interviews Ernst Hofmann--swiss Personnel Manager
Editor 's Note; Ernst Hofmann is Assistant to the Personnel Director of George Fischer, Inc.,
Schaffhausen, Switzerland, manufacturer of castings and machines, employing 11,000 people in plants
throughout Western Europe. Ernst has been sent to the United States by his company for one year of
study and observation of our personnel practices. Since last spring he has been a gradúate
student at the University of Michigan School of Business Administration, and also has worked half
days as a personnel trainee at Argus in order to gain practical experience. In addition, Ernst has
made detailed study visits to more than 30 U.S. companies of all types. This interview presents some
of his observations and comparisons. DICK: Are there any fundamental differences in
management-employee relationships in Western Europe and in the United States ? ERNST: I was
surprised to find an amazing similarity in general economie concepts and in the thinking and feeling
of the individuals. The biggest differences are created by our need for more skilled manpower, and
our structural shortage of labor - that is, we have more demand for workers than our population in
Switzerland can meet. DICK: How do you solve that problem? ERNST: One-third of our hourly paid
employees are imported from other countries like Germany, Italy, Austria, Hungary and Fr anee. This,
of cour se, creates some language problems, and we have had to train some supervisors to talk
Italian. Of cour se, almost all Swiss know at least one or two languages in addition to the French
they speak at home. English is a popular second language which we start to learn in secondary
school. DICK: Do you provide social benefits to your employees ? ERNST: Yes, and they are similar to
yours in such áreas as social security, old-age benefits and unemployment compensation. These
items amount to 32% of the wages (Ed. Note 22% is U.S. average.) In addition, our company provides
rental housing for roughly 20% of our employees. This is because rent controls in Switzerland have
created a serious housing shortage, since few people want to build and rent. Another major
difference is our Individual Welfare Service. Here the company gives financial, legal and family
living advice and
anee to employees who have troubles. DICK: What are the normal working hours in Switzerland?
ERNST: Most industries work a 46 hour week, on a schedule which allows a free Saturday every other
week. By custom, everyone goes home at noon for the big meal of the day, so we have a two hour lunch
period, but work from 7:30 A.M. to 5:45 P.M. Younger employees would prefer a schedule like yours,
but the majority demands the old schedule. Editor 's Note - Space does not perxnit the balance of
this interview in this issue. However, it will be continued in the next edition with information on
apprentice training, military training problems and other interest - ing facts. Any questions you
would like discussed may be submitted to the Personiiel Department.
It's In The Book...
When do I get incentive pay? What's my seniority? How do I find out about job openings? Can I get
a leave of absence? How much vacation do I rate? If you have questions like these, or any others
concerning Argus personnel policies, head for the nearest copy of the newly-published Argus
Personnel Policy Manual. You will find a copy nearby, as they
have been permanently placed in convenient spots throughout all plants. Chances are you'll also
find a quick and clear answer to your question as a result of many hours devoted to this project by
Art Parker, Jr. Policy information on every phase of both hourly and salaried operations has been
gather - ed and is presented with a table of contents and section headings to make it easy to find
any information you desire without delay. Future policy changes will be reflected in the
New Argus Products To Be Introduced At National Photo Show
The Argus C33 is a top-quality camera designed to appeal both to beginners and advanced photo
fans. This is readily accomplished because the basic camera has many "ease-of-use"
features, while the available system of accessories provides the flexibility to handle practically
any photographic challenge. The C33 has a bayonet lens mount for quick interchangeability from the
50mm normal f3. 5 lens to either the 35 mm wide angle or the lOOmm telephoto. The new Argus Zoom
viewfinder provides accurate viewing for all of the lenses. Flash is synchronized for "M"
or "X" and a new folding flash unit will be available. Exposure setting can be handled by
the beginner with single color-matic markings, or the more advanced owner can add the coupled meter
for precise settings by just matching the lens to the meter reading. Other C33 features include
single-stroke rapid wind, concealed crank for rapid wind, a new easy loading arrangement and the
exposure counter is under glass where it cannot be accidentally moved. The C33 camera with case will
retail for $99.95, while each accessory lens is $49.95.
1When the Master Photo Dealers' and Finishers' Association trade show opens in Philadelphia on
Maren 22, Argus and Sylvania Photolamps will be there with one of the major exhibits. The Argus
display will feature the introduetion of three important new products . . . the C33 colorslide
camera ... the Match-Matic M3 8mm movie camera . . . and the M750 movie projector. Center of
interest in the exhibit will be a newly-created "demonstration center". Here, visiting
dealers will be able to see all of the new products in operation and learn about the advanced
selling features. The M750 projector and the President slide projector will be in continuous
operation. The two cameras will be presented and demonstrated by Argus sales representatives.
Dealers will also see the full program of advertising and sales promotion campaigns ready to push
Argus sales this spring. Orders will be taken at the show, and a tremendous volume of business is
This is the big brother of 4he M500 . . . actually only slightly larger in size, but with a 50%
increase in projection brilliance! The M750 uses the new Sylvania Super Tru-Flector projection lamp
with a silvered metal mirror precisely positioneel inside the lamp, producing a brilliant beam like
a miniature lighthouse. A major feature of the M750 is the new Argus "Zoom" projection
lens which is variable from 15mm to 25mm to provide the exact picture size desired to fill a screen
without having to move the projector! Other new features will include a quiet-operating motor and a
film splicer stored inside the cover. All M500 features are also included in the M750 which will
retail for $124.95.
The first Argus movie camera is ready for introduction, and it's a beauty. In the Argus
tradition, it has outstanding modern styling, and is a special value because it offers features
normally available only in f ar more expensive models. The Matic exposure system already proved on
the C3 is included for quick and easy settings. The M3 has a three-lens turret with f1.9 wide angle,
telephoto and normal lenses, all included at the $99.95 retail price. Instead of the usual single
viewfinder with masks or lines for the various lenses, the M3 has a separate optical viewfinder
matched to each lens. As the turret is turned, the proper viewfinder automatically comes into
position, and the user always sees a large, exact image of the área he will photograph. Other
features include built-in filters for haze and indoor color . . . single frame operation for special
effects . . . f ast ratchet wind . . . and diecast metal construction.
#3 in a series of letters from our sales personnel
From: Jack Pelton Field Sales Manager
If you are wondering about the popping flash bulbs and curious crowds of men in our plant on
February 5, this activity was part of our National Sales Meeting. The men comprise our field selling
forcé plus representatives f rom our distributors on the West Coast, New York City, Canada
and Alaska. The meeting was designed to present our 1959 merchandising plans and to bring our field
salesmen "back home" for reorientation to our immediate goals and sales plans. While
attending the meeting, our salesmen had an opportunity to examine each of our new products in
detail. Needless to say, these were received with a great deal of enthusiasm. They had an
opportunity during the plant tour to take pictures with the new C33, and the results were
We hope many of you had an opportunity to say "Helio" to our salesmen and become a
little better acquainted with them. Seeing our plant inoperationwas stimulating to our sales group.
Many of the men commented on the great care being taken to provide them with top quality products.
Our thanks to all of you for helping to make this portion of our sales meeting a success.
Argusite's Son An Executive At 13
Put together a father 's guiding hand and business sense with a young son's imagination and
enthusiasm, and you have the makings of a young business executive who can show profit in fun,
education, and, hopefully even money. A few years ago, Chris Van den Broek, thirteen-year-old son of
Jan Van den Broek, Argus Product Development Engineer, bought f rom his older brother for $2.00 a
toy printing press of the kind that uses rubber type. Chris fooled around printing novelty cards
andgradually became both intrigued with the visión of neatly printed work and aware of the
severe limitations of his printing equipment, andhebegan to think of investing substantial capital
(several dollars) in a greater variety of rubber type. Then dad stepped in and suggested that if
Chris was interested enough in print ing to invest good money he should invest in equipment with
which he could do a professional-looking job, using a standard metal type that would eventually be
able to pay for itself by doinguseful work. So, together, father and son made plans. They borrowed
asmall letter press f rom Walter Root, Argus engineer. They studied its construction and operation
and then, starting from scratch, Chris designed a machine that they could build themselves, a
machine that would function like their model but that could be built of wood instead of cast iron.
With the extreme pressures required in printing, the construction of an effective wooden printing
press is an engineering achievement in itself. Type drawers, each requiring more than 150 small
pieces, were built of tempered masonite and glued and fitted together. Finally, in October 1958 the
press was finished, tested, and pronounced successful. The "Chriswood Press" was ready to
commence operations. The public library furnished texts on printing, and Chris found out that
printing is not only a craft requiring a good deal of learning, but an art requiring good taste and
careful judgment in the selection of type face and the arrangement of the printed words. The
Press" now offers a selection of 23 different type faces and sizes as well as all kinds of
paper, cards, envelopes and stationery.
Being a perfectionist, Chris knows no compromise for quality. Neat work is done slowly. Chris can
turn out 675 pieces an hour working at his best speed. But, in a business-like way, he says this
does not include time out for coffee breaks which consist of soft drinks or ice water. Since
hefirstwentintooperation four months ago, Chris has turned out 35 custom-printedjobsincluding
stationery, Christmas cards, business cards, plain white envelopes, and some novelty material. He
even printed the family Christmas cards in three colors. Some of his customers have been friends and
relatives, while others are local businesses. His biggest job to date was 1,500 church collection
envelopes. Chris has his own printed business cards, order blanks, and invoices. Chris still has
about $50 to recover of his nearly $200 capital outlay and inventory. But he's hoping to expand,
show some profit, and perhaps buy or make some more presses. And, oh yes, to mark his claim as a
true executive, Chris has his father occasionally work for him as a printer!

Around The Shop
There haven't been any weddings or births in the Paint Shop (at least none that we know of), but
Ethel Huffman scoured around and dug up a little news, anyway. Latest reports are that Harold
Luckhardt is dr i ving a new Pontiac these days. He has certainly had good weather to break it in -
with all the ice. And speaking of ice, we understand Mr. and Mrs. Robert Alian feit they were lucky
to get home on New Year's eve without being "bitten", tf you see Bob, ask him about it -
it's an interesting story. Have you heard anyonespeak of their New Year's eve "slumber
party"? There were several, dueto the sleet storm. On the sick list this past month are Ethel
Sinelli who cracked some ribs on New Year's eve and is still not back to work; Herbert Roberts, who
has been ill for several weeks but is back on the job now, and Rose Hubbard, who we hope is back by
the time you read this.
With only two months remaining of the bowling season, there are six teams that are separated by
only eight points from first to sixth place. At the present time the Argusnots are in first after
knocking off the McDonald's Drive Inn for three points on position night. The Argusnots started out
the season as a dark horse and have been steadily climbing up the position ladder until they have
reached the top position. Thisteam consists of such kegeier s as C. Rothfuss, R. Ross, D. Ray, D.
Dempsey, and M. Geiger. The question is, "can they stay there?" Ask the teams that are
below them. Another dark horse team which has climbed to third position is the Atomic Five. You
cannot count out such teams as McDonald's, Thirsty Five and Green Hornets. In case any of you get
disgusted with your bowling, just remember that even the good bowlers have their bad night just like
everyone else. This can be verified by the "Red Head" on the Thirsty Five team. But this
does not discourage him, he just shakes it off, buys a new ball, and keeps on bowling. Will the
standings remain the same in the next couple of months as they are now?

Fun For Everyone At Argus Teen-age Parties
Everybody, including the chaperones, has fun at the Age parties, as indicated in these pictures
snapped at the last affair. Larger turnouts are evident at each of the dances which are scheduled
twice a month in the Argus cafeteria. Continued success of these parties depends greatly on
volunteer help from adults who are willing to spend a couple of hours of their time at these dances.
Some of those who have graciously assisted us so f ar this year are: Mr. and Mrs. Fred Fischer, Mr.
& Mrs. Robert Isaacson, Mr. & Mrs. Fred Leeman, Mr. Les Schwanbeck, Mr. Donald Crump, Mrs.
Jim Swaney, Mr. Vern Peterson, Mrs. James Thompson, and Mr. & Mrs. John Kenne. Anyone who is
interested in helping out may contact Mr. Bill Betke at Argus, or Mr. orMrs. Betke at their home -
NO 2-6925. At the last party one mother was overheard to say, "It sure makes you feel young
again, doesn't it." - So let's have some more volunteers.
