Laval Says He Was nwilling Tool

Student Describes Life with

Aid Needed

Asserts That He Saved
Two Former Premiers
By The Associated Press
PARIS, Aug. 4-Pierre Laval, picturing himself as an unwilling tool of
the Nazis, claimed at the treason trial of his Vichy chieftain, Marshal
Henri Philippi Petain, today that he had prevented the Gestapo murder
of two former French Premiers.
The arch-collaborator, who has been sentenced to death by a Mar-
seille court, asserted he saved Leon Blum and Paul Reynaud from Nazi
firing squads and professed ignor-

Contrary to popular opinion, the
oral approach does not mean neg-
lect of the written language. It sim-
ply means the use of oral methods
as a first step toward the attainment
of an efficient knowledge of both the
spoken and writen language.
'Intensive' Method
The oral approach should not be
confused with the "intensive meth-
od" or "army method," says Dr.
Fries. Under the intensive or army
method, rapid mastery of a language
was sought by spending much longer
hours per week at studying it, but
not all army classes had the facili-
ties for use of the oral approach.
The army method, far from be-
ing something set up in opposition
to civilian language scholars' meth-
ods, was actually established with
their aid. In 1941, before Pearl Har-
bor, the American Council of Learned
Societies called a conference to dis-
cuss the language needs of govern-
ment agencies. Impetus was given
to the new approach when the Rocke-
feller Foundation in 1942 granted
$100,000 to the Council to set up
an intensive language program at
various universities, under the direc-
torship of Dr. J. Milton Cowan, sec-
retary of the Linguistic Society of
America. It was the methods tested
under this program that were adopt-
ed by the army.

ance of the murder of Georges Man-
del, celebrated martyr of anti-Ger-
man resistance.
'Most ]Eated Man'
'Thougheacknowledging in effect
that he was the "most hated man in
France," the swarthy, white-tied ex-
fugitive contended he and Petain sav-
ed France from "asphyziation" and
asserted he twice refused to enter a
military alliance with Germany, once
at the time of the Anglo-American
landings in North Africa.
Digging into the secrets of the
Vichy regime, Laval maintained that
French Forces in Africa resisted the
Allies "to. prevent a German attack"
and revealed that two American dip-
lomats-one of them former ambas-
sador to Vichy, Adm. William D.
Leahy-had demanded an explana-
tion for Laval's notorious "I desire a
German victory" speech.
Twelfth Day
Laval, who wound up his two days
of testimony only a few minutes be-
fore the twelfth day of Petain's trial
ended, declared he saved Blum and
Reynaud from German firing squads
by protesting to the Germans.
He said that, as chief of the Vichy
government, he learned the two for-
mer premiers of the third republic
"were going to be shot by the Ger-
mans.in reprisal for the condemna-
tion in Algiers of Pierre Pucheu (Vi-
chy Minister of the Interior) ".
German Orders
Lava 1 asserted he also - protested
to the Germans and demanded an in-
vestigation when he learned that
Mandel had been murdered.
Laval, asserting that the Vichy
government made the best of a bad
situation after the Franco-German
armistice, declared the worst actions
of Vichy resulted from direct orders
of the Germans. Since France was
prostrate, the Germans could have
"asphixiated" her.
Grad Outing Club Hike
Members of the Graduate Outing
club- are asked to meet at 2 p. m.

Books Printed
In Germany To
Be in Library
Thousands of bocks, pamphlets
and periodicals published in Ger-
many and Occupied Europe during
the war are being cataloged for use
in the General Library, Dr. F. Clever
Bald, War fistorian, announced.
Sent to the University by alumni,
fcrmer students and others in the
armed forces, the material is valu-
able not only for souvenirs but also
for reasearch.
Faculty members of the German,
history, political science and sociol-
ogy departments, the law school and
the College of Engineering have in-
spected the books and found many
which will be of uses in their courses.
Published during the war, the
books probably could not be pur-
chased anywhere in America, ac-
cording to Dr. Bald. The cataloging
of the material will not be completed
for some time, but books may be
borrowed from the Office of the
War Historian until they are ready
for removal to the General Library.
Arctic Area T
ue Discussed
Dr. George Kiss of the geography
department will give a talk on the
"Russian Arctic" before a meeting
of Russky Kruzhok, Russian Circle,
at 8 p. m. EWT (7 p. m. CWT) to-
morrow in the International Center.
Agriculture north of the Arctic
circle, Russian polar stations, and
the general problem of navigation on
the sea lane across the Arctic from
Europe to the Far East will be dis-
cussed by Dr. Kiss. In addition, he
will present the importance of north-
ern Siberia in air travel.
A social hour will follow the talk
and tea will be served from the samo-
All interested are cordially invited
