Description:

This clear plastic rectangular template has thirty-one flowcharting symbols arranged in four rows. In addition a scale of tenths of inches across the top is numbered to 90. A "card count" scale along the right side is numbered from 100 to 700. A scale of sixths of an inch, numbered from 1 to 30, is along the left side. Along the bottom is a scale of millimeters numbered from 0 to 250.

The template fits in a tan paper sleeve that explains the meaning of the symbols. The front of the sleeve has an address label directed from Digital Equipment Corporation to Mr. David Studebaker, Marketing Director, Digital Systems House, Batavia, IL.
