Electric Light

perhaps 1946

The window that didnít break. Sandlotters, with a glint in their eyes and a premature sound of tinkling glass in their ears, have a field day trying to put a baseball through one of General Electricís new sports floodlights, which will light Yankee Stadium beginning May 27 [no year]. All their ďsteamĒ however, delivered from only 20 feet away, failed to break the special, impact resistant window of the floodlight.
