Emphasizing that at least 80 per
cent of production costs arise from
labor charges, Prof. Charles L. Jami-
son of the School of Business Admin-
istration stresses the need of immedi-
ate wage-freezing in an article in the
December issue of the Quarterly Re-I
view of the Michigan Alumnus.
Immediate- freezing of wages and
farm prices-without allowing loop-
holes for adjustments for further liv-
ing cost increases-must be put into
effect if inflation is to be prevented,
Prof. Jamison said.
"Sacrifices must be endurec by
everybody, and the sooner the factory

their share-the less they will have to,

suffer in the not too distant future,"
he said.
Asserting that the ceiling method
of stabilizing living costs penalizes
the sellers of goods too greatly, by
reducing prices below costs, Prof.
Jamison said that better results would
be achieved by controlling costs as
the first step in price stabilization.
Prof. Jamison predicted the exten-
sion of price control and rationing
into the post-war period as a neces-
sary preventive of inflation such as
Germany experienced after the first
World War.

Thirty-three Jap planes attacked an American convoy off Guadal-
canal Nov. 12 and American fighters and anti-aircraft guns brought
down 32. Here one of the Jananese has just sideswiped the cruiser San
Francisco (right) and leaves a dense column of smoke (center) where
he crashed. Left foreground, a U.S. cargo transport. The Jap plane
killed. 30 of the San Francisco's crew. Two days later the cruiser met
and brought about the destruction of a Jap battleship off Guadalcanal.
The cruiser is now in San Francisco Bay for repairs.

CHICAGO, Dec. 16.-aP)-Herbert
Hoover proposed tonight that post-
war peace making be divided into two
stages-a preliminary peace to be
followed by a period devoted to solv-
ing problems in a cool and deliberate
"The essence of my proposal is that
we have no armistice, no general
peace conference, such as Versailles,
but that we set the peace making in
two stages," he explained.
"The first to be an instant 'con-
ditional peace' that will turn the
world toward political, economic and
spiritual recovery without the delays
of last time. And then that the world
should take time to cool off and
work out one by one and separately
the solutions for lasting peace."
The former President suggested
that the separate problems should be
examined or negotiated by separate
commissions representing the domi-
nant nations as a prelude to action
by their governments.
He also stated, in an address pre-
pared for delivery before the Execu-

tives Club and over the Blue Network,
that the United States must cooper-
ate with its allies in finding a last-
ing peace and making it secure.
To accomplish the purposes he out-
lined, Hoover said, the United Nations
should agree in advance to the terms
of a conditional peace and a subse-
quent program, and should impose
and enforce the conditional peace.
He added that the declaration of
conditional peace should embrace:
"1. Total disarmament of the en-
"2. The designation of provisional
boundaries of nations.
"3. Machinery for repatriation of
prisoners and civilians driven from
their homes.
"4. The removal of the economic
blockade the instant the enemy has
handed over his arms.
"5. The immediate organization to
relieve famine, combat pestilence and
aid in reconstruction. Otherwise
there would be anarchy and no peace.
"6. The provisional restoration of
all commercial treaties."

has struck a copyright snag in its
program of morale building, but
boasts a battle-wise champion who
threatens to inveigle an "act of Con-

He is Dr. Joseph Maddy, chairman
of Michigan's wartime Civil Music
Committee, whose dispute with James
C. Petrillo, head of the American
Federation of Musicians, over radio
broadcasts at the National Music
Camp at Interlochen, Mich., last
summer gained wide publicity. Pe-
trillo's order banning student broad-
casts from the camp precipitated the
Dr. Maddy told the Michigan De-
fense Council today that the Music
Educators' National Conference de-
manded a "reasonable compensation"
to the copyright owners of "Semper

Caisson Song." He said an offer of
one cent a copy for printing 50,000,-

A RECENT SURVEY of war industry plants revealed. that
dirt accumulating on lighting fixtures is slowing down
production by robbing workers of much of the light
they need.
In the 27 war plants surveyed, the average loss of light
due to dirty fixtures was 17.5%. In one plant producing
airplane propellers, 38.2% of the light output was being
wasted because dust from a land-grinding operation was
allowed to collect on the lights.
This dimout is serious because it hinders production.
The remedy is simple: A proper schedule of lighting
maintenance, under whichlamps and fixtures are washed
regularly, will help insure the maximum light output
needed for efficient war production.
Frequency of cleaning depends on many factors, such
as the type of lighting installation and the kind of work
being' done in a given area. For advice on how to set up
the most economical schedule for lighting mainte-
