From the July 6, 2006 Volume 2, issue 3.
Presidents report,
 Arcanum Wayne Trail Historical Society, lnc., 123 W. George St., Arcanum, OH 45304 

This is page 3 from this report

Dayton Racquet Company Defense Work Moving to South Albright St. in Arcanum from Dayton in 1934, the Dayton Racquet Company was the only manufacturer of steel string and steel frame racquets in the world. During the years of operations; tennis, badminton, squash, racquetball, and paddle tennis racquets were manufactured. After World War ll, the sales of racquets were mostly to schools and playgrounds with nationwide distribution. In April 1942 Dayton Racquet Company was awarded a contract to manufacture the bolt for the Ml, MlAl, and M2 Carbine rifle as a subcontractor of the Inland Manufacturing, Division of General Motors in Dayton. Inland Manufacturing was the largest producer of carbine rifles during WW ll. The contract necessitated that R. B. Munday, company president; store the racquet manufacturing equipmento make room for new machinery, leased from the Cincinnati Ordinance Department. After samples of the cartridge bolts were submitted and approved in July, full production began in September with around 65 employees. Production increased with additional employees being added to operate additional shifts, with a cafeteria opened at the factory to furnish food for the workers. Arcanum's sole defense plant was awarded the Army-Navy award on July S, 1944 during an open-air ceremony at the plant. This award was given to plants where the production of war materials was excellent. The award was celebrated with a grand picnic for the plant employees and their families held at Wayne Lakes on Saturday, July 8. Prizes amounting to $200.00 were awarded for various contests, and a grand lunch was served under the "Big Top". The war effort at the plant continued with as many as 240 people employed, with work force at times spread to three shifts. ln April I 945 production was reduced to 60 percent and by August the contract was cancelled. lmmediately the plant began to reconverto the manufacture of the steel racquets. By the end of the war production the factory employees decreased from 24O to 25. E. Louis Munday became the sole owner after his brother R. B. Munday retired from the business at the end of I 945. Ted Munday, son of Louis, continued operation of the Racquet Company until December 23,1995 when the last racquet was made.

Don't know if they made anything for the war effort but tobacco company s did supply millions in tobacco products which was good for moral, an important aspect during a very stressful time. A good thing at the time.

OK maybe not the best find but it did get my heart pumping when my wife yelled "Wayne, there's an Underwood in the next booth" while we were checking out the local antique/resale shop.

Good one Charles. Always make me smile knowing a WW2 contractor is still in business.

Great stuff! Since this thread started, have been looking for carbine related furniture. Nothing so far, but it so hard to tell what is what when most auction and estate sale pictures only show the furniture and not the tags. If they do it is usually the more valuable makers. I suppose that is half the fun.

Re:  Rochester 13, N.Y.

My understanding is that bigger cities were divided into numbered postal zones before zip codes.  The number may have corresponded with a post office or station.   At least in Philadelphia, when zip codes were implemented, the previous numbers were converted directly. For example Philadelphia 1 became 19101.  

Someplace I have an early zip code guide with Mr. Zip on the cover promoting the use of zip codes.  I'm going to guess that its from the early 1950s.

Here's Union Carbide's address in NYC on the title page of the 1946 printing of The Oxy-Acetylene Handbook.

City codes/postal district codes started in 1943 to break up larger cities. The Zone Improvement Plan (Zip Code) was in the early 60s

You got me on Linde/Union Carbide, what did they make for the carbine?

Nothing directly that I know of.  I just was looking for an example of a city postal district from the 1940s.  edit. It did cross my mind that they almost certainly supplied the equipment and gas for welding the wire stocks.  Probably also for those items that were brazed.

Doing a little web searching, the Royal typewriter shown in my previous post is a Model 10, third variation, probably built in 1927.  My dad picked that one up after the war, probably in the 1950s or 60s.  He never liked the electric ones when they came along.  He punched those keys!

While we're on the Typewriter-Carbine theme, I use to own an early IBM electric typewriter found in the town dump.  It didn't take much to get working.  Probably was a model B.  Another kid in High School had a couple of them.  Funny the things we thought were interesting!

This is probably not news to most of you, but I've recently started a foray into M1 helmets and was surprised to discover Inland manafactured helmet liners.

All very cool!  I did not know, either, that Inland made helmets.

That, to me, is one of the great draws to carbines and carbine collecting.  The carbine is one of greatest examples of the collective war effort by such a variety of companies during WWII.  I hope that we would never need it, but I don’t think the effort put forth by industry during WWII could ever again be duplicated.

Just amazing.  Thanks for sharing.

Every show I go to I look through the helmet liners in hopes of finding an Inland for my helmet shell

Ha! Spring chest, that is a good one.

I know this isn’t a helmet forum, but thought this was interesting. A Firestone-Inland?
