faith, one company plans expan-
sion expenditures of one billion
dollars for this year alone without
mentioning its schedule for 1957
and 1958.
An interesting aspect of the ex-
tensive expansion effort is the
fact that the plans follow directly
on the heels of the biggest decade
of expansion in the automotive
industry's history.
The seven billions spent for mod-
ernization and new facilities since
World War II enabled the produc-
tion of a phenomenal nine million
cars, trucks and buses in 1955. This
total exceeded by more than a mil-
lion the best previous year-1950.
Geared To Demand
Industry experts have estimated
that some ten million cars could
be built in a single year with ex-
isting facilities. Yet, the present
expansion plans are geared to an-
ticipated demand for the more dis-
tant future.
The reason for long run plan-
ning is the time and effort to place
a modern factory into operation.
It takes two-three years to fully
equip a factory and to place it
into full production.
A greater share of the expansion

Manila Dawn'
With U.S.
"Dawn," the student newspaper
of the University of the East in,
Manila, displays remarkable if not
baffling contrast to United States
college papers.
The English language periodical
is written in &y chatty vein with
little differentiation between newsl
stories and editorials. The frontI
page features an article head-
lined, "The Case of the Disappear-
ing Embalmed Cats."
The writer notes that Compara-
tive Anatomy students have been
losing dead cats from their lab-
oratory. . After six paragraphs of
pondering over how the dead cats
"walked out on them to find new
masters," it was finally explained
other students were coming in the
laboratory and taking them.
One page of the small Philip-
pine paper was devoted to poetry
and fiction, such as "Wherever I
perk/They call a jerk;/ Oh, what
a disgrace-/I'm a hopeless case."
In a story about student guards
who patrol campus, a sentence was
155 words long. The writer de-
scribed each of the four guards,
saying "They mean you no harm,
really, but don't you, by Ben, don't
you ever do something out of-order'
because, brother, they will not for-
give you."

Photographer Hal Leeds has only been a cnamera sleuth for a
ar and a half, but exhibits more enthusiasm than many life-long
Leeds, a Daily and Ensian photographer, can generally be found
in a dark-room, developing his latest effort, or strolling about cam-
pus en route to an assignment, his broad shoulders laden with pounds
of photographic equipment.
Legend about the Publications Building claims Leeds never re-
moves this equipment, even when dating fiancee Etta Lubke. His
only reply: "I really don't have very much equipment."
It was August, 1954, when Leeds bought his first camera, .had
a friend tell him how to develop and print, and went to work on
41 pT his own-as he puts it, "knowing
s a nothing." He learned the "tricks
of the trade" by reading maga-
"Then the Ensian put out a call
for photographers," Leeds said,
s "I answered. Thby turned me
away twice. They must have
thought 'what is this kid from
Law School doing over here?'
"I tried a third time and met
the kindly managing editor, Etta.
She put up with all my retakes-
and for a While there were lots of
them. When I found out she also
took pictures-we became en-
gaged," Leeds added.
Leeds joined the Daily staff last
summer and his work, the product
of enthusiasm andtlong hours, was
( immediately greeted with praise.
What does he try to do in a pic-
ture? "To get an accurate impres-
sion of dramatic situations. Only
the camera can do this for me.
If you only 'see' it, it soon becomes
a hazy memory. The camera keeps
it alive."
SLeeds does not feel photography
is an expensive hobby: "It more
a than pays offin personal satisfac-

A frank message to
graduating electronic and mechanical
LYou know it ... we know it ... so let's be frank
about it.
The demand for engineers-experienced or graduate
-far exceeds the supply/And, from now on in, you
are going to be sought after more than a triple threat
halfback for next yea s varsity.
You will be promised many things (including the
moon with a fence/around it), and for a young man
just getting started these things are pretty hard
to resist.
So, again, le s be frank. We at Farnsworth won't
promise you the moon. (Although we are working
on some ideas that may eventually get you there
and back.)'We are an old, young organization. Old,
in the sernse of being pioneers in the field of elec-
tronics./(Our technical director, Dr. Philo Farnsworth
invented electronic television.) Young, by being the
newest division of the world-wide International Tele-
pho'ne and Telegraph Corporation, devoting our ef-
forts exclusively to research, development and pro-
duction of military and industrial electronics, and
atomic energy.
All of which makes Farnsworth big enough for sta-
bility. and technical perspective, yet small enough
for mobility, flexibility and recognition; of the in-
dividual. Here you will be associated with and
encouraged by a team of eminent scientists and
engineers with many "firsts" to their credit in the
field of electronics. Here you will be heard . .. not
just one of the herd.
We earnestly invite you to hear the whole fascinating
Farnsworth story. We're pretty certain it will make
the decision for your future easier.
