The first column are  T flip-flops, which toggles on an edge,
presumably the positive one. The divisions are then output on pins
1-7. That's the easy part. 9-14 is translated as "signal outputs
transformed by Walsh functions". The HS element is probably a SR
(set/reset) flip-flop.

Pin 15 is the input to the divider.

16 = "power supply". Though, are you sure you haven't got the
orientation of the chip wrong somehow?

8 = "general" (with suggestions for common and ground)

Start by checking continuity between corresponding corner pins (1, 8,
9, 14) as I'm again suspecting that you've got the orientation of the
chip wrong. If a corner pair (what looks like either 1/9 or 8/14) is
connected between all the chips, that's likely the ground/power supply
