Little Johnny opens up his topographic map and sees U.S. highway 67. Unfortunately, he is sort of blind so he can't see the direction the highway goes. U.S. Highway 67 runs in what directions?

What does PLSS stand for, and how do you write the PLSS of a place on a topographic, 7.5 series map (formatting - ?/?/?/?/?/?)?

P.S. Sorry if the question is confusing.
P.P.S. Good luck at nationals!
