7th Oratorical Lecturer,
Admiral Yates Stirling,
Will Discuss Strategy
To SpeakTuesday
Former Chief of Staff of the
United States Fleet, Admiral Yates
Stirling, Jr., will enlarge upon some
of the problems of naval defense
and naval strategy in the Pacific
and the Far West when he lectures
here Tuesday as the seventh lecturer
in the 1940-41 Oratorical Associa-
tion Lecture Series.
He brings to the platform a back-
ground of forty-eight years of active
service in the United States Navy,
together with a keen intelligence
which has established him as one of
the great navals experts of the world.
Admiral Stirling has earned high
praise as Naval Critic for the United
Press, through wlich his articles are
released to 1400 newspapers and 400
radio stations throughout the United
States.
After the Spanish-American War,
Admiral Stirling served as Flag
Lieutenant whei his father was Com-
mander-in-Chief of the Asiatic Fleet
during the Russo-Japanese War.
While holding this position he saw
war with Japan tremble in the bal-
ance when his father cleared the
decks for action to prevent the Jap-
anese from carrying the war into
the international waters of Shanghai.
During his forty-eight years of
service, he fought with the Navy in
every engagement in which our
forces were active, earning the name
of "The Fighting Admiral." Admiral,
Stirling has commanded every type
of ship in the Navy and has also
served as Commander of the Yangtze
Patrol of the United States Navy in
China and as Commander of the
great Naval Base at Pearl Harbor in
Hawaii. It was while he was head
of the Yangtze Patrol that General-

area, however, which includes Ar-

flow of trade east to west and to
change that direction from north to
south presents a very difficult prob-
lem. Its solution, if it is solved, will
require decades rather than months
or years.

Same amount of elect ricity
LIGHT!
For the same amount of electricity, you can
get TWICE THE ILLUMINATION by using
new fluorescent tube lights in your factory,
store or office. But a word of caution is
advisable:
Fluorescent lighting is so new and there are
so many fixtures on the market, so many
claims being mn de, that it is hard for the inex-
perienced buyer to know what to buy. At
present fluorescent fixtures are more expen-
sive than other types, and special auxiliary
equipment is needed to operate them, so that
getting your money's worth is especially
important.
Our experienced lighting staff will be glad
to give you full :information about this revo-
lutionary new lighting. Call any Detroit
Edison office. There is no charge or obli-
gation. The Detroit Edison Company does
not sell fluorescent lamps or fixtures. See
your electrical contractor or lighting fixture
dealer. The Detroit Edison Company.
