We didn't get the little wipes.  We already bought alcohol by the gallon, so we just got a pint bottle and a roll of paper towels.

  You forgot the little alcohol wipes to get the blooming ink off your fingers

  > You are right.  The company I worked for in the late 70's and 80's had
  these older Selectrics that had been at the company long before I started.
  We had special balls that substituted the common superscripts for some of
  the less common keys like the ~, ^, and * were replaced with superscript th,
  st, nd.  There were other substitutions also, but I was not a secretary, so
  I didn't use them much and don't remember.  I just know that whenever I
  tried to use the ^ key when typing an equation, I needed to cuss, change the
  ball and get the white-out.
