organization and procedures of various
jobs so that we will be able to go out
with our own units and direct and super-
vise engineering work. It gets a bit tir-
ing at times just watching and learning,
but our instructors are generally free
enough of the time to explain and an-
swer questions. Even vertical and hori-
zontal curves, which I had feared were
lost to my knowledge, came back to me
after a ten-minute discussion with the in-
structor. It sure felt good to suddenly
have those curves come back."
