 P: 202 Can anyone tell me what the following circuit connection means? It's the arrow going from VEE to the 50k resistor. Thanks.
 P: 160 that resistor is probably just a potentiometer. voltage adjust. typically; 1 end goes to gnd, 1 end goes to the supply, middle goes to circuit. in this case, it either is adjusting to get VEE -8V or using VEE -8V to get some form of divider or voltage scale to somewhere else maybe i'm wrong,

I agree with edmondng. If you post more of the circuit, we could tell you more about the functionality, but from what you've posted, it's a potentiometer.
