Dramatization depicts a woman in the work force in the 1960s: Female worker with vintage 1960s beehive hair style appears to be performing work as a secretary, but, it turns out she is engineer Julie Stone. Julie takes printouts from a printer in information center. She opens a drawer and takes out document files. She leaves her office. She arrives at office of her Chief named George A Price. Chief scolds an engineer called Harry for committing mistakes in his designs. Chief asks Harry to be responsible in his work. Another engineer named Pete Newton draws designs. View of the cabins. Harry meets Newton and discuss about his conversation with Chief. Julie calls Harry. They go to a restaurant for lunch. They talk about the sources of information and Julie encourages Harry to use the information center that she runs, rather than relying on antiquated and incomplete methods of obtaining information. Julie gets up and leaves the restaurant. Harry and Pete talk in the office. Pete asks him about his meeting with Julie. Harry takes his seat and opens a drawer. He looks over the documents and publications, including a Playboy magazine, to get information about transistors.
