The truth about fraternity rush-j
ing will be exposed in the forth-
coming issue of Gargoyle, campus
humor magazine, which will, be
released to a waiting world next
Monday.
Almost the entire issue will be
devoted to a "roast" of the fra-
ternity rushing system, according
to Doug Parker, Gargoyle editor.

A campaign to stop the Nation's
No. 1 killer-heart disease-is un-
der way this week.
February 14 to 21 has been
designated National Heart Week
by the American Heart Associa-
tion to dramatize their three-
point program for controlling'
heart disease. Ann Arbor's fund-
raising drive will end Feb. 28.
LOCAL CARDIAC programs in-
tegrating all local medical, nurs-
ing, hospital, and social service
facilities should be set-up to fight
heart disease when it strikes
home.
Five million dollars is needed to
do this on a national scale. Mich-
igan's quota is $250,000. Anyone
may contribute by dropping their
donations in the red-plastic hearts
posted in local stores.

ulation of Europe was killed by
the. bubonic plague which swept
the continent in the 1300's, ac-
cording to the World Book En-
cyclopedia.

It really shook the old boy up,"
Parker said.
In addition to the fraternity
expose which will include pic-
tures, cartoons and appropriate
doggeral, there will be a few
'pieces of greater literary merit.
Contributions from a veteran
staff member and former Hop-
wood winner will be sandwiched
between the advertising." In keep-
ing with our traditional policy, we
will present the best advertising
matter of any campus publica-
tion," Parker declared.
SPEAKING OF Monday's sales
plans, the funnyman said, "we ex-

another large freshman class again
this semester.
"New freshmen who have
never purchased a "Gargoyle"
before are our best customers,
for obvious reasons," he ex-

Despite rumors of a pre-sale
raid on the plant by fraternity
men there will be copies for all
who are willing to part with 25
cents, Garg spokesmen declared.

We must pass
pretty stiff exams, too
Not only the steel we use must pass a rigid test ...
We have a "board of examiners" which tests the merits
of all the operations of our company.
That "board" consists of our employes, our customers, and
our stockholders-the three groups which have a primary
interest in our business.
We believe it is to the benefit of the entire social order that
we operate our company in the best interests of these three
groups. And they give us some pretty tough quizzes from
time to time.
We believe our customers deserve the very best product
we can manufacture at the lowest possible price. Our em-
ployes are entitled to steady employment, good working
conditions, and the highest possible income consistent with
the economics of the business. Our stockholders should have
a reasonable return on the capital they invest in our business.
Our constant purpose is to maintain a fair balance between
these three groups.
In every college community in the country, one or more
of these groups is represented. How well do our principles
work out in practice?
TAKE EMPLOYES. In the last six years, the number of IH
employes has increased from 60,000 to 90,000-an increase
of 30,000 jobs. In the same period, the average straight
time hourly earnings of our factory employes have in-
creased 92.6%.
TAKE CUSTOMERS. Last year we produced more goods and
services than ever before. Customers benefited from the fact
that our margin of profit on sales was one-third less than
in 1941.
TAKE STOCKHOLDERS. They have had fair return on the
savings they have invested in our Company. Dividends on
common stock last year are equivalent to 5% on the book
value, as compared with 4% in 1941.
TAKE THE COMPANY. Last year we had profits, after taxes,
of 5 Y cents from each dollar of sales. We believe most people
