It wasn't all that long ago that deadlines for magazine printing
cycles were measured in months - unlike today where electronics
on-demand printing has cut lead times to weeks and even days. Accordingly,
this National Schools advertisement pitching 'after the war' training
in electronics servicing that appeared in the September 1945 edition
of Radio-Craft was likely designed and submitted two or three months
ahead of the publication month (e.g., in June or July). How could
they be so sure that their scarce advertising dollars wouldn't be
wasted? Simple. By that time, the entire country seemed to have
a sense that World War II would come to an end soon since Hitler's,
Mussolini's, Tojo's, and other Axis Powers' forces were under severe
stress and suffering profound defeats in every theater. Surrender
was deemed imminent. It was as if word had leaked earlier in the
year that Little Boy and Fat Man were under construction and about
to deliver the debilitating and psychologically devastating blow
that would finally end the saga. It turns out they were correct.
