Trails for


Curiosity may have killed the well-known
cat, but it has been underneath most of the
hard-won developments that lastingly benefit
mankind. Once in a great while, perhaps, ac-
cident has been the spark that has lighted
the torch of achievement; but much more
frequently-always, nearly -accomplishment,
especially in the field of science and invention,
has grown out of the insatiable curiosity that
seems to be the heritage of us all. Mankind
wants to know -and is slowly finding out.
Curiosity, the complement of imagination,
knows no appeasement.
This is, however, no essay on the vague sub-
jectiof idle curiosity. There is a vast difference
between that and the organized, untiring, well-
planned activity which, as an integral part of
Westinghouse organization, searches continu-
ally for the answers to problems which intelli-
gent speculation sets up. This, if you please, is
curiosity in itshighest and most intensified
form; and it is a fundamental thing in the West-
inghouse operations.

Research, as we know it, isthe guiding hand
upon the purely creative activities of business.
Constantly it brings to light new aspects of
known laws, new visions of laws yet to be un
covered. But the search for these is not hap.
hazard nor whimsical; it is organized and planned
as carefully and thoroughly as any other busi.
ness activity. Whether chemical, electrical, or
physical, it is engineering; and it follows engi-
neering methods and tradition.
Many great engineers have been wholly at a
loss in this specialized activity. For research,
in a sense, reverses the usual order. Its en-
deavor is -to discover unknown laws in the known
facts-a thing which is quite at variance with
ordinary engineering practice. Yet there is fi
fine type. of engineering mind which finds its
great opportunity in this kind of work. And to
that type of, mind, and that type of man, re-
search beckons with an unmistakable hand.
It is engineering pioneering, it blazes trails for
progress, to new triumphs, in a wiiderness into
whose outskirts man has scarcely penetrated.
