Prof. Koella To Discuss
Theatre Marcel Pagnol
Prof. Charles E. Koella of the Ro-
mance Language Department will
go to Chicago Saturday to speak be-
fore the Alliance Francaise on the
theatre Marcel Pagnol.
He will go again Tuesday to speak
to the Cercle Francaise about the
work of the French author, Julien

running power toois, blueprint
reading and other specialized sub-
jects, Mr. Lemler explained. He
worked with the script writers first,
checked with the vocational spe-
cialists, approved the rushes and
animation, and in general "saw
that the government got it's
money's worth."
After receiving his commission as
a navy lieutenant, Lemler "worked
with instructors in shore stations and
aboard ship in promoting the effec-
tive use of visual education materi-
als." He was based at New
Orleans, Pearl Harbor, and Charles-
ton, South Carolina. At Pearl Har-
bor, his job was to promote the film-
aided training programs on battle-
ships. He worked several days aboard
the Missouri.
"The armed forces program sold
the public on the use of educational
films, and brought them to the at-
tention of the educators," Lem-
ler said. His work was to help the
officers make effective use of this
visual training material at their
disposal, and see that the material
was well organized.
Among the subjects covered by
the program of refresher training
on battleships were damage control,
engineering, recognition, communica-
tions, abandon ship, navigation,
radar and fighter direction, ordnance
and gunnery, and look-out training.
