Numerically Speaking Quiz (1945)

From the August 4, 1945 issue of The Saturday Evening Post, a little quiz by “Paige Reeder.”

Many numbers have special meanings, quite apart from their arithmetical value. There are a baker’s dozen of them below. How many can you interpret? Ten correct is good; if you get them all, you are just plain lucky.

I was neither good nor lucky; neither was hubby. Let’s see how you do — without cheating and searching the internet. I’ll post the answers in the next few days.
