InterpretationEach enrollee worked successively on each of the various work projects in his camp. This period of rotation covered the first two months of his residence in the camp. Each foreman provided his crew with the following: instruction in the use of tools on a particular job; instruction in safety regulations as they applied to a job; an understanding of the opportunities for advancement; the qualities he considered when giving a worker a good rating; the reason why a project was being done and its relationship to the camp and the national program of conservation; and, the relationship of his work to employment in private life.
