"Sterling Salt Program," man-on-the streets interviews with Victor Packer.

This week on Gems, we travel back 61 years to September 15, 1941. We are standing at Mr. Tenenbaum's Public Market at 381 S. 50th St. Brooklyn, New York with our host Victor Packer. Listen in as he interviews the gathering crowd of Jewish housewives about their definition of "a good man," a subject in which they all prove expert.
