A. Well, the shop itself took jobs from various scientists and made apparatus whenever they needed it; and there were two methods of jobs coming through the shop. When ei scientist needed a piece of apparatus, he just sent il through procurement and it was sent to either one of the three shops in the technical area. That was one way; and they would be distributed according to how much work each shop had. Thc other way was go direct!) lee Fits I I'ilzpalrirk. who was in charge of procurement and the machine shop of "E" group al one' time I and say, "How about getting this job done?" And usually il was put through, or the sketch or piece of paper or the scientist talking to one of us machinists lo do it. Q.
