in one of the nations newest, finest training laboratories." The residential program requires steady attendance at the D.T.I. Chicago laboratories and classrooms, six hours a day, five days a week for a period of 36 weeks, 48 weeks, or 96 weeksedepending upon the plan selected. The popular 36 weeks training program provides a theatreman with a thorough basic technical training in preparation for the coming era of theatre television. The 48 weeks training program includes all of the subjects studied in the basic course and presents additional work in Industrial Electronics, including such subjects as: electronic motor control; high frequency electric heating; photo-electric cell applications; electronic control applied to electric welding; and other phases of the electronic field. The exhaustive 96 weeks' program includes all the subject matter in both previous courses and round out the students training with radio engi neering and design work.

Each laboratory student spends about half of his training time in the classroom; the other half in the laboratory on practical, learn-by-doing projects. Instruction is carried out in a new, modern, post-war building that is filled with what is said to be one of the finest and most complete assortments of commercial type radio-electronic equipment for training purposes in the country. For example, D.T.I. students have at their disposal an impressive variety of commercial radio servicing and test devices of various makes and types; the television laboratory contains a veritable wealth of cathode ray oscilloscopes, signal generators, television receivers, an Image Orthicon television camera, related television equipment designed to duplicate an actual television studio, and an Iconoscope camera such as used by television stations to televise motion pictures. The D.T.I. stockroom carries a sufficient number of electronic parts to insure an abundant supply for all students at all times.

Training is unusually thorough. In the spacious radio fundamentals laboratory, beginning students quickly acquire valuable practical experience coordinated with the basic radio theory and fundamentals they are taught in the classroom. Theory is made palatable and easy to digest with such visual aids as illustrative talks, demonstration equipment, and instructive motion pictures. Important facts are emphasized in a way that makes them easy to grasp and to remember. Television, of course, plays an important part in the training program. A student spends many interesting hours in the television laboratory working with modern television equipment, to acquire and retain a thorough, working knowledge of the subject#a knowledge that will stand him in good stead when television becomes an integral part of the moving picture thentre program.

The homeestudy trainee covers practically the same ground as the resident student. The fundamentals of radio comprise the basic Work, while a choice of either television and advanced television, radio communications, and industrial electronics make up the electives for advanced study.
