I feel much better about this now that I know the age of the material.
I was very frustrated by that too, but I don't think the age of the book matters so much. They are living in a post-WWII America, which is not too different than today, aside from anything transistorized or computerized (which actually is a bonus for them, because things are simpler to repair.)
