OcDet 3 Bulletin June 12, 1961

Thanks to Lyle Hildebrand.

Maintenance Assignments 1970-71

OcUnit3 was desperately short of techs during this period. There were 14 techs for both watchstanding and maintenance. It was during this period that OcUnit3 went to 3 watches of 6hr each, with a 6hr workday. For diurnal primates controlled by a 24hr circadian rhythm, this was metabolically disruptive. But...who knew?
