Ann Arbor's Christmas this year
may be a white one but it won't be a
very light one, Floyd C. Moseley,
chairman of the Junior Chamber of
Commerce Christmas Decorations
Committee, said yesterday.
Lack of electrical fixtures and.
workers to arrange street lighting due
to the war emergency will keep this
city from having its usual illuminated
trees and electrical displays which
adde holiday spirit to past Christ-
This does not mean that home dec-
orati'ns have been banned, Moseley
explained. "Several residents have
called and asked if it is against civil-
ian defense regulations to have elec-
tric lights on Christmas trees," Mose-
ley pointed out, "naturally there is no
This year, however, there will be no
outdoor lighting contest such as that
of past years. Residents would pur-
chase many supplies vital to war in-
dustries in competing for the $100
prize,, Moseley explained.
Main street is minus its red and
green lights and the miniature

streets are decorated with tinsels in-
stead of the usual lights. All the lamp
posts on Main street are made up as
In past years the large fir tree at
the center of the diagonal was decor-
ated with bright lights adding a touch
of Christmas spirit to the campus.
This year the tree bears no lights, and
the campus, like the rest of Ann Ar-
bor; will be pretty much dimmed out.

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.

everybody, and the sooner the factory
worker and the farmer start to bear
their share the less they will have to

CHICAGO, Dec. 16.-(P)-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
"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."

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
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 hand-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 which lamps and fixtures are wished
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-
nance in your plant, or for help with any production
lighting problem, call any Detroit Edison office. Our
Industrial Lighting Engineers are at your service,
