"SLACKS & CALLUSES: Our Summer in a Bomber Factory" San Diego, 1943: two spirited young teachers work the swing shift in a bomber plant. Entering a male-dominated realm, they learned to use tools that they had never seen, live with aluminum shavings in their hair, and get along with people from all walks of life.
