Doug Pomeroy mentioned a few months ago that the Decca safeties he used 
for some reissue project were WE Wide Range Verticals.  It makes sense 
because Decca owned World at that time, and it is said they bought them 
to get access to that process.  The leading W in the matrix numbers in 
the Deccas from the 40s indicated the use of a World studio.  What 
scares me is that it is possible that many of these were destroyed in 
the Universal warehouse fire, but is is probable that many are included 
in the recent donation to LC.
