Thank you very much, Mr_David. I'd have to look again, but since it was not the original handle, I think it had a plastic "universal" adapter. The cold water one is a porcelain cross & it works fine. I'm thinking of getting another porcelain cross for the hot water and maybe looking for extra adapters just in case. I saw one that they don't have in stock that comes with multiple adapters for different styles. Frodo, is the outer sheathing called a "stop tube"? Or is that something completely different? In other news, I joined the ASA Alumni Friends & Family group on FB. They are trying to find record of my father in the service. Unfortunately, the Army told him his records burned in the fire in St. Louis-- but when I checked online, the info about the fire said that only Army records from 1912 to 1960 burned and he served from 64 to 68. He was able to get stuff re-issued, but I don't now what the deal is. I mean, it's possible they just lost them somehow (which would be in line with my family's luck) or there might have been a few stray files after 1960 that were destroyed but not widespread enough for it to show up on the internet-- which would also be my family's luck.
