Discuses Position o
Country in War World
Prof. Charles E. Koella of the Ro-
mance Language Department will
discuss the role of Switzerland in a
world at war in the second of the
series of French lectures at 8 p.m.
today in the Assembly Room of the
Rackham Building.
Prof. Koella was born in Lausanne,
Switzerland and received his educa-
tion there, graduating from the Uni-
versity of Lausanne.
In discussing the speech he will
give today, he explained that Swit-
zerland is bound to neutrality by
treaties. Switzerland was given offi-
cial neutrality in the Treaty of West-
phalia in 1648. This was confirmed
in the Treaty of Vienna in 1815.
'Neutrality Not Effeminate'
He said that though Switzerland
has had no major quarrels with
other nations since the time of the
French Revolution and though neu-
trality is a time tested policy of the
Swiss, "there is nothing effeminate
about Swiss neutrality."
Switzerland's role in this war con-
sists mainly of four things, he said:
(1) Shelter for political refugees. It
is estimated that there are 300,000
German refugees in Switzerland now.
(2) Switzerland acts as an instru-
ment of the International Red Cross.
In this capacity the Swiss investigate
the treatment of war prisoners and
help in getting messages to and from
civilians and prisoners in Europe.
(3) Switzerland is in charge of
national representation in enemy
countries for the countries at war.
(4) "The greatest role of Switzer-
land now," he said, "is the lesson the
Swiss teach that there is no hope
outside of democratic procedure.
Theyteach complete acceptance of
equality or rights of all people; they
have no religious or race prejudices."
Swiss Pro-Allied.
He said the bulk of the Swiss peo-
ple are pro-Allied, and added that
the Germans twice have asked to
send troops through Switzerland and
twice Switzerland has refused.
Tickets for the lecture may be
secured from the secretary of the
Romance Language Department or
at the door at the time of the lecture.
All servicemen are invited free of
charge. to all lectures.

Dressings Unit
Is Open Today
At 1 p.m. today the League Surgi-
cal Dressings Unit rooms will be
open for volunteers to work on either
the 2 x 2 or the 4 x 4 dressings.
According to Jean Whittemore,
head of the unit, the policy of per-
mitting the volunteers to choose
their own type of dressing was in-
augurated because so many women
expressed their inability to handle
one type as well as the other. In
the present system the volunteer is
asked to choose the size of dressing
that she is most efficient at making.

States, Mexico, Canada, and Europe.
There are 22 officers and warrant
officers in the new group making a
total of 34 officers in the company.
The company has been expanded so
that it now occupies two floors of
Tyler house in addition to the two
floors of Hinsdale house which the
company formerly occupied.
Amazed by Facilities
"The new men are amazed by the
splendid facilities of the University
and especially by the housing facil-
ities," Capt.. George Spence, com-
manding officer of the company, said
He continued by saying that every
one of these men was interviewed
prior to his assignment-here to make
sure that they had the. educational
and intellectual qualifications as well
as the natural ability, personality,
and ambition necessary for the course
"We hope to arrange the men's
study so that they'll have time to
give vent to their natural talents,"
Capt. Spence said, "but the men must
be soldiers first of all.
Intensive Training First
"Their military training program
has already started and for several
months they will receive very inten-
sive training. Their opportunity to
find an outlet to their natural talents
will be subjugated to their studies
during this period."
"As many of the men have not
received prior training in the Army,
they will receeive a course here which
is even more intensive than regular
basic training but spread out over a
longer period of time," he said.
International Center
Holds Tea Today
Another of the informal afternoon
teas will be held from 4 to 5:30 p.m.
today in the International Center.
The teas are held every Thursday

American friends.
Students of all nationalities gath-

China, Turkey, Italy, and the Latin-
American nations may be found dis-
cussing educational trends together.
