The Daily Goodbye

Patricia Sullivan

Good morning, readers.

Have you ever temped? If so, you probably know Manpower Inc. and in that way, Elmer Winter touched your life. Its first ad said "Women, work when you want as long as you want. We have a need for typists, stenographers, bookkeepers," Winter said. "The next day, there was a whole line of people on 3rd St."The harder sell was getting businesses to buy into the concept. But as anyone searching for a permanent, full-time job now can tell you, businesses got over that hesitancy.

John "Jack" Pemberton, who led the American Civil Liberties Union in the 1960s when it won milestone Supreme Court cases on interracial marriage, political representation and student free speech, died Oct. 21 at his home in Monte Rio, Calif. He was 90.

She was on her lunch hour, on a sunny slope with friends, hoping to catch a glimpse of the glamorous First Lady. In this way, Ann Donaldson Atterberry witnessed the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963. She and her friends were seated just below Abraham Zapruder and show up in the first frames of his famous film.

Short report today, but some days are like that. Have a good one and we'll see you here later.
