g. Use of Equipment for Training Purposes. The
motion picture equipment of the Special Service Company
will be utilized for training purposes when not required for
motion picture entertainment. The commanding officer of

equipment, and will arrange schedules for the use of this
equipment when not required for other purposes. Liaison

to the screen by the light will leave as soon as it is darkened.
When insects become mashed on the screen allow time for

should be exercised to prevent the screen from being exposed
