June 28th In 1947 - Still The Same As It Ever Was

(The Paris Economic Conference of June 1947 - an endless drone of hammering things out)

Not one of the more exciting days in history, but nevertheless one where things happened as was reported on this installment of the NBC Radio series "World News Roundup". On the domestic front, June 28th 1947 was looking at threatened strikes and work stoppages from Steel workers and Coal Miners. The Mississippi River was flooding and was the highest in over 100 years. Overseas, the Paris Economic conference was underway and a cautious eye was kept on the civil war in Greece and tensions in China while the former allies were busy parceling off the remainder of the Japanese Navy.

And to top it all off, a report was issued that indicated Americans were in fact, getting a little stupider over the years.

One can only imagine what that report would say now.

And so went June 28th.
