This advertisement from a
1949 issue of Radio & Television News magazine would
never pass muster with the politically correct crowd of today! Even though, as with
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,
there is a very, very, very tiny minority of rabble rousers who are having their way with the
vast, vast, vast majority (there seems to be a lot of that these days). 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.
* Due to relatively newly concocted concept of "cultural appropriation," they
are now known as the Commanders. The original
website now redirects to the commanders.com domain, which I won't even bother linking
to. Instead, I link to the Redskins website stored on Archive.org.
Here are a few more examples of Samgamo advertisements in the
1954, and June 1956 issues of Radio & Television News.

*The Service Proved Molded Paper Tubular
The Sangamo Pathfinder. Type 30 Molded Tubular. The better, trouble-free, thoroughly
service-proved plastic paper tubular capacitor.
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.
