WHAT ARE THEY DOING? BY STEVE WALLER Dennis Georg is a ham. Among other things. What I mean is, he is a member of the local H- pack, a "subdivision" of the Amateur Radio Relay League, and spends a lot of time on his amateur radio. The other things Dennis is well, he is an independent apprentice, a parts man, a bookkeeper, a delivery boy, a salesman, an equipment tester, a repairman, and an antenna installer, as well as an executive custodial engineer for Electronic Specialties of Algona. Young Mr. Georg is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Georg and graduated from Algona High School last spring. Denny puts in the hours. He goes to work at seven and knocks off about five each day, six days a week. He's been on the go with this schedule since school ended, but he began working part time last November. He is fnore or less an independent apprentice because his boss, Gene Faulstich, allows him freedom of movement from one task to another knowing that Denny can and does get the job done, Whether it be selling a TV or keeping the books, Denny can handle the situation. He got started on the job through his interesting hobby as an amateur radio operator. In fact, Denny has several hundred dollars worth of radio equipment in his basement at home and uses it in his spare time. The job is right down Denny's alley. He spends 75% of his time inside the shop doing many different chores. Perhaps the most challenging for him is what he called "benchwork". This is general repairing and testing of radios, televisions, and 2-way radio equipment. This work offers Denny a chance to improve his skill and knowledge for when he goes on to college. He plans to major in mathematics and/or chemistry and then go on to a possible masters degree in engineering. Denny would like to make a career out of the electronic interest, he now has. When he first arrives at work (7 a. m.), Young Mr. Georg tends to the custodial tasks such as cleaning out the three trucks used for service calls. He sorts tools, restocks shelves and often writes out the order form for parts needed around the store during the rest of the day. Some of the time he repairs 2-way radios which are used by many implement and construction companies, doctors and plumbers. There have been veryfew"un- usual happenings", but when something DOES go wrong, you know it. For instance, the day Denny sent smoke signals—wires crossed and circuits backfired. However, the fault was in the frayed wires which were overloaded. At the moment, Denny is working on his second class commercial license which will give him government authorization to change the frequencies of 2-way radios. He already holds the amateur radio permit, of course, because of his present 2-way radio work. Denny is always improving his mind. In spare moments, he reads novels, history and science literature. He's also started reading his next year's textbooks, which he acquired while at the summer orientation period at ISU. Although he hasn't found time for it this summer, Denny still likes to fish and hunt, and he is an avid Minnesota Twins fan. If he needs assistance, which isn't very often, he can turn to Brian Mortensen, Vern Leek, or Mr. Faulstich, his helpful fellow workers. Although it probably will never happen, don't let it throw you if Denny Georg pops up on the TV screen in the climax of an exciting episode of "Mr. Terrific" I SENECA Mr. and Mrs. Fred Johannesen received word Saturday that they have a new grandson, a baby boy born July 8 to their daughter, Marilyn, and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Jay Fulwiler, Milwaukee, Wise.
