This advertisement would never pass muster with the politically correct crowd of today! Even though, as with the Washington Redskins football team, Red Man chewing tobacco, Indian Motorcycles, Land O'Lakes food company (see a huge list of official company trademarks with Indians in them), American Indians are without exception used as a depiction of strength, high quality, high integrity, and beauty, a very, very, very tiny minority of rabble rousers are having their way with the vast, vast, vast majority. Somehow that has become the norm in society today. If the goal is to upset everyone and to pit good people against each other, then it has been a resounding success. For the record, I reject the idiocy and buck their efforts whenever possible... like right now.

Sangamo Electric Company Ad, September 1949 Radio & Television News - RF Cafe

Introduced by Sangamo in 1946 as the first tubular paper capacitor to be molded in a thermo-setting plastic, the Type 30 is thoroughly service-proved!

Used extensively by television manufacturers - preferred by service men - the Type 30 offers these proven advantages ... Especially designed flexible leads that resist breakage and can't pull out! ... No wax to run when heat is applied ... Element is never damaged in fabrication (less heat and pressure is used in molding the thermo-setting plastic case) - this means greater dependability - no "hot spots."

Try these stable, '" rugged, long-lived paper tubulars - you'll like them! See your Jobber. If he can't supply you, write us for folder No. 820.
