Sales Article
Magazine For Engineers
To Come Out Today
In Seventh Appearance
Featuring an article on "Foreign
Marketeering" by E. C. Appold, man-
ager of the General Electric Xrayos
Company of Mexico, the Michigan
Technic, official Engineering College
publication, will make its seventh ap-
pearance of the year today.
The article deals with Mr. Appold's
ideas on the "inside dope on being an
international salesman," and de-
scribes the problems the sales-en-
gineer faces in foreign marketeering.
The author graduated from the Uni-
versity in 1927.
Other leading stories include "Elec-
tric Motor Control" by A. C. Protten-
geier, '30E; "Airplane EngineExhaust
Valves" byCharles W. Ranson, '42E,
and "Lignin Utilization" by Keith
Smith, '43E..
The April "Technic Presents" offers
short biographies of Prof. Edwin Bak-
er of the chemical engineering de-
partment; Seymour Furbush, '41E,
former managing editor of the Tech-
nic, and Bill Beebe, '41E, captain of
the swimming team.
In an editorial entitled " '42E: Feb-
ruary?", the staff discusses the pros
and cons of the proposed idea of
graduating the junior engineers next
February. According tothe Technic,
such a plan would not be advisable
under present conditions.
The inside dope on publicity for the
annual Slide Rule Ball is described
in "The Technic Reflects" while "The
Technic Explores" deals with various
phases of the latest in engineering.

On Labor Shortage Problem

Walks Are To Be Walked On-
Let The Little Blades Grow

It is virtually impossible to hire
skilled manual and technical workers
in the open market, R. Randall Irwin,
director of Industrial Relations at the
Lockheed Aircraft Corp., told mem-
bers of the Eleventh Annual Confer-
ence on Industrial Relations which
was held Thursday and Friday in the
Rackham Building.
Best solution for companies who
are faced with the shortage of skilled
help, Irwin pointed out, is to rely on
training the best men they have in
the organization at the present time.
Importance Of Work
In addition, Irwin emphasized the
importance of the work being done
by the United States Employment
Service. This Service, he stated, has
oeen helpful in locating employees in
various parts of the country for the
Lockheed Company or for any other
company which requests the service
of this department. It is a real aid in
centralizing the workers for the de-
fense industries.

Annual Recital



Prof. Percival Price of the School
of Music will open his annual Spring
series of carrillon recitals with a con-
cert at 7:15 p.m. Thursday with com-
positions by Bach, Schumann and
The recitals, which will be offered
every Sunday and Thursday evening
until June 19, will feature several
unique presentations such as a caril-
lon duet and the combination of the
carillon with brass instruments.
Three new compositions by Profes-
sor Price and several of his new ar-
rangements will be played during the
series as well as a composition by
Bill Sawyer, orchestra leader at the
Union and a graduate of the School
of Music.
During the series Professor Price
will be assisted by John Challis, Ypsi-
lanti harpsichord and clavichord
manufacturer; George Faxon, organ-
ist at the St. Andrews Episcopal
Church, and Tom Kinkhead, instruc-
tor in organ.
In his program Thursday, Profes-
sor Price will play Bach's "Prelude
and Fugue, No. 18," Schumann's
"Butterflies," "Nocturne 4" and
"Hunter's Song" and Beethoven's
"Moonlight Sonata, Op. 27, No. 2."

Dutch folk songs, "Charming One,"

qualities in their work as a result of
their camp training, Ray S. Living-
stone, of Thompson Products Inc.,'
explained to the members of the Con-
ference in his address Thursday
morning. They never shirk their
duties and are always willing to do
their best.
Negro Labor Reserve
There is a real labor reserve among
the negroes, Livingstone pointed out,
but social prejudices among the em-'
ployees have prevented management
from hiring negroes. When these pre-1
judices are overcome, the negro will
play an important part in the nation-
al defense program. Management, he
said, is also abolishing the practice of
firing newly married women.
A campaign conducted by both
unions and management to eliminate
waste and defective products in the
Westinghouse plants, T. O. Arm-
strong. Supervisor of Industrial Re-
lations at Westinghouse explained,
has resulted in a decrease in both
waste and the number of defective
products. In order to carry out such a
program, Armstrong declared, it was
necessary to secure the cooperation of
both labor and management.
'Anti-oaching' Legislation
Arthur J. Hills, of the Canadian
National Labor Supply Council in
Ottawa, explained the "anti-poach-
ing" legislation which prevents Ca-
nadian manufacturers from hiring
men who are already working another
defense industryI This is not "forced
labor," he said, but an effort on the
part of the state to prevent this "la-
bor poaching."
Good, conscientious, concentrated
training can reduce training time of
supervisors and skilled workers by
about 50 per cent, Michael T. Kane, of
the Office of Production Manage-
ment, told members of the confer-
ence. The experienced man, he said,
will be training the inexperienced
man, while he himself will be trained
for a higher position.

Heads Of Organizations
On Campus Are Invited
"Heads Together," Martha Cook
dormitory's get-together tea for stu-
dent heads of all undergraduate hon-

will be held from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Wednesday, April 30, it was an-

of all women's and men's dormi-
tories, fraternities and sororities and

dent publications. A few of the 225
invitations issued yesterday went to
faculty advisors, but the occasion is
primarily for the pleasure of the stu-

-ret Gose, '41, who has been working
with chairman Jean Elliott, '42, Mar-

National Meet
At Ypsi Won
By Flying Club
While Michigan students were va-
cationing, the University Flying Club
was busily upholding its well-estab-
lished reputation by outflying all
competition to take first place in the
National Intercollegiate Flying Meet
held April 12 and 13 at Ypsilanti.
The Club also was awarded the
Loening Trophy at the National In-
tercollegiate Flying Conference April
15 in Detroit. The award was given in
recognition of the Club's competitive
program and safetly record.
Michigan, with a total of 64 points
at the Ypsilanti Meet, topped the
University of Detroit with 33 points,
and Kenyon College with 18 points.
Other entrants were the University
of Purdue and the Detroit Institute
of Technology.
In the individual events with tro-
phies as prizes, John Clifford, '41A,
took first place in the Spot Landing
contest, and Scott Osler, '41E, was
second; Osler was first and Hallock
Hoffman of Kenyon was second in
the Bomb Dropping competition, and
Edward Martin, '41E, and Hoffman
were first and second respectively in
the Bull's Eye landing event. Osler
and Hoffman tied for the High Scor-
ing honor.
Grover Loening, noted for aeronau-
tical design, presented the Loening
Trophy to the group at a banquet
closing the sessions.
Violence At Ford Plant
'Just Doesn't 'Come Of f'
DETROIT, April 21.-(AP)-All
was quiet as thousands of work-
eis returned to their jobs today
at the huge River Rouge plant of
the Ford Motor Company.
State and Dearborn police
s watched at the plant gates, but
s there was no disorder.

Such signs will begin to dot the
campus today in Alpha Phi Omega's
second annual Use-The-Walks cam-
The whole idea of the campaign is
to persuade the students to utilize the
sidewalks, which were constructed
primarily to be walked upon, and save
the grass, which was designed pri-
marily to be looked at, according to
Irving Koval, '42E, and William Agar,
'43, in charge of the campaign.
Lately - or before vacation - Ann
Arbor's once beautiful campus has
become criss-crossed by ugly by-
paths, the work of students who were
either too lazy to walk to the side-
walks, being so very anxious to make
their eight o'clock, or else couldn't

of snow, the directors of the campaign
During vacation the Building and
Grounds department did some excel-
lent work in manicuring the campus,
they stated, and it is up to the stu-
dents to see that freshly sown seed
is given a chance to germinate and
grow into grass like all seed should -
not into sidewalks as their predeces-
sors did this winter.
Last year's campaign, the first to
be staged, was a big success, they
So when signs such as "If the Uni-
versity can raise the tuition, we can
raise the grass to fruition," appear in
your path, remember that they are
there for a purpose. Don't walk
a'round them - back up and travel
on the sidewalk.
