the student, Dick Emery, '43E, IFC
president, said yesterday in clarifica-
tion of the misunderstanding these
rules have caused.
Eligibility of all freshmen who
pledged during the current semgester
is determined by their five week
grades. Since the only grades re-
corded in the office of the Dean of
Students are grades below C, men
with D or E grades against them at
the five week period will be ineligible
for initiation.

Democracy by Force
"The experience of the last quar-
ter of a century has demonstrated
that democracy can't be imposed by
force-reform must come from with-
in," Dr. George Kiss of the geography
department said last night at a panel
discussion in the League.
"Democracy by Force?" the sub-
ject of the panel, was discussed by
Dr. Kiss, Prof. Wesley Maurer of the
journalism department and Prof.
Hessel Yntema of the law school.
Prof. Maurer emphasized the part
which example could play in the pro-
duction of democracy. Prof. Yntema
suggested that the history of U. S.
foreign policy should be taken into
considera'tion when considering our
part in the yost-war period.

INSPECTION has always been an important step in pro-
duction. But in war work-where a soldier's life may
depend on the accuracy of machined parts and the
absence of flaws in a gun or shell or tank or engine part-
inspection is doubly important. Final inspection must
make sure that the product is RIGHT-and that no defect-
ive parts or workmanship are allowed to go out of the
The more precise the work, the more critical the inspec-
tion-and the greater the need for GOOD LIGHT to help
detect imperfections. Besides finding "rejects" when the
work is finished, inspection helps to prevent losses by
catching flaws early, as the work goes along. Periodic
inspection saves wasted man-hours and reduces spoilage.
Good light for inspection is "tailored" to the needs of the
specific job. What is satisfactory lighting for one job may
be wholly inadequate for another. For example, inspec-
tion may involve the internal structure of a piece, or its
composition. It may involve surface contour, or color and
finish. In each case there is a particular kind of lighting
to assure best results. Our industrial Lighting Advisors
will be glad to discuss any lighting problem you may
have, and study your requirements. They will then sub-
mit recommendations without charge. Call any Detroit
