The basic course consisted of 4 class hours and 3 hours of laboratory per week for terms of 12 weeks. Term I-Mechanics, Term II-Heat, Sound and Light, Term III-Electricity. Only the first two terms were completed but this paper is primarily a study of the work done in Mechanics. 150 Basic Trainees started Term I in September. Of this number, 109 completed the term and took the final Form E examination. Another group of 38 students started Term I in December and completed it in March. An aptitude test (Penn State) was given to all trainees at the beginning of the term, and at the end Form E of the Cooperative Tests was administered in addition to an army G. I. test.
