Right, on the E20 they used the button to latch a relay to hold 1,2,3
contactors in for a fourth speed.Extremely helpfull as it is the most
efficient speed, without field weakening.
That being said, the power pulse still has me a bit confused: The E12's
didn't have FW circuits so the field is always at full power. It looks like
it simply bypasses the centrif switch to allow full armature current; was
there a reason they had the cent switch in there in the first place?

'cruse-control' or speed lock. On E-12/E-15 it does give you a
'power-pulse' by going full field briefly, so the centrifugal switch has
time to spin up-- very nice when starting on hills. The way the E-20 is
wired (I don't have one) that isn't necessary.
