    The second diagram is captioned:

    "Small electron base current controls large collector electron current flowing against emitter arrow"

    While I guess technically correct, it seems more likely was intended to have this wording:

    "Small emitter base current controls large collector emitter current flowing against emitter arrow"

    Maybe not?

    You are probably correct. Maybe throw in a dash for extra clarity:

    "Small Base-Emitter current controls large Collector-Emitter current flowing against emitter arrow"
