Did the spoke break at the elbow down by the hub?
On such an old bike it is likely the spokes have reached the end of their useful life. Even if the wheel is newer than the bike, an improperly built, tensioned, or stress relieved set of spokes will begin to fail early, and all must be replaced or you will be going back to the bike shop every week for new spokes.
