Dazzling Speed Shown in Linemen’s Race

THREE teams, each composed of two linemen and a helper, competed recently in a unique wiring efficiency test staged in Baltimore, Md.

Each team cut gains, or notches, in a pole, erected a cross-arm, hoisted a transformer into place, installed primary fuses, strung secondary wires from transformer to conduit, and connected, soldered, and taped all joints.

The winning team’s time in completing the job was 15 minutes and 10 seconds.
