...and had current news and commentary coming through their radios...

Jim (Jim/KB1MCV), back in the mid-seventies my grandma had a good clear out, when I helped her to break down a shelter, which was her makeshift accommodation after the war. Part of my "booty" was an operating tube radio, a so-called "Goebbels' snout". After a minute warming time The Scorpions came out of the old bakelite cabinet - somehow misplaced, since I as a little boy expected something very old.

I wonder if those women were paid the same as the men.

I don't think there were any women working at the GM or Ford plants which is understandable given the deplorable working conditions. The present GM strike has us wondering about the future of that company. Unfortunately when working conditions are so bad that labor unionizes the effects linger.

The railroads paid a heavy price as well for labor abuse that existed early on.[Tim Cole; posted on: 10/20]

Also Tim, in response to your remark on women working in these places, my Mom had a job at a munitions factory up here in Canada when she was a very young girl. She said it was both dangerous and, as you said had deplorable working conditions. She recounted coworkers getting digits and even hands blown off by accidents but she said the pay was three times what she could make as a serger, cook, or any of the other 'jobs of the day' so women were willing to take the risk. Lucky for her, she emerged with all here fingers, but as a result of excessive noise, had severe hearing loss at a very young age. [Chris (Packard newbie); posted on: 10/21]

The majority of the people that can afford a packard are in the upperclass in most countries, and those people have usually a very good knowledge of the English language...

The rate of decomposition of H2O2 is increased violently by rust. Dave (O_D) and other chemists may call this a catalyzed reaction. Heat comes into being and oxygen is released rapidly, a part of the water even vaporized. Impressive but not really helpful.
