"Can you give me an idea of the
qualities I should have?" you' ask.
"You can't hope for success in any
kind of engineering," Mr. Hammond
says, unless you have a genuine
interest in the working of natural
laws. If studying those laws bores
you, keep out of engineering.
"Then you must be curious. Some
of the happiest hours I've spent have
been those when I've gone out of my
way to trajhp over rough country examining geological formations.
"You must have imagination be
able to see a thing before it exists;
you must be as much a dreamer as
any poet or philosopher, with the
practical ability to make your dreams
come true. You must be an accurate
thinker, and an honest one; you can't
juggle with the forces of nature; if
a man misleads himself or others, he
won't succeed in engineering.
"Speaking of the value of honesty
in engineering, I once offered a man
an important position just on the
strength of his honesty, his sterling
character. When I was in charge of
the mining operations of the Consoli- -
going to be

I wrote and told him that I had this
position to offer; that I had thought
of him because I knew just the square
sort of a boy he had been; that I'd
give him the position if he had the
technical qualifications, and that I'd
leave it to his judgment as to whether
or not he had them.
"He decided that he had them and

charge of the Guggenheim Explora

and offered him another important

that company, he became the consult

most successful in a financial way,
And his first big chance came because
of that boyhood honesty of his hon
