    Dick---If the steel strike was in June and July 1952, someone at the Studebaker Spotlight was really clairvoyant in February, 1950. Tom

    The article brings back memories of my own pay in 1971.
    My first real job paid $2.25/hr. working on ice machines and hanging gutters.
    So from 1946 to 1950, just shy of 20,000 Studes were sold.
    Good article. When was the steel strike?

    Autoworkers have sure came a long way relative to the pay and benefits they now have.

    An intresting quiz, Dick. So as to not give away the answers, I'll fess up as to how I did by percentages:

    Peak Peacetime Employment: 'Way off; I guessed only 30% of the actual total.

    Average hourly take-home pay 1950: 'Came real close; I guessed 85% of the actual figure.

    Ditto the above, 1941: 'Got even closer yet; I guessed 110% of the actual figure.

    Stockholders at Peak: WAG was 'way off; I guessed there were about 80% more stockholders than there actually were!
