The week ending November 12, 1949, as seen by NBC's radio series Voices and Events. Again, strikes were an issue, with the Coal Miner's and United Mineworkers President John L. Lewis at the forefront.
John L. Lewis: “The United Mineworkers Of America are instructed to resume immediately the mining and production of coal to continue until Midnight, Wednesday November 30, 1949”
There were also some local elections and a look back at the 1948 Presidential election with the famous Harry Truman clip about listening to dire predictions of election returns on his radio.
All in all, a reasonable week as far as history goes. At least it was a hopeful one and you can't say that all the time.
