Teflon was not in regular industrial use other than for laboratory ware
prior to the middle 1960's, Jerry.  If  Campbell found ONE factory
experimenting with the material, I'd not be surprised.  I believe I might
have a complete run of the '54 ASTOUNDINGS.  If so, I'll try to run the
Editorial down.
