They Roll Dough Into Dollars (Sep, 1954)

They Roll Dough Into Dollars

Will Golant and Sam Dolinko were just ordinary bakers until they made a $2,000,000 “mistake.”

By H. W. Kellick

WHEN Sam Dolinko hauled 55 pounds of coffee cake, flat as a flapjack, out of the oven one day in 1949, it looked as though a major disaster had overtaken the little neighborhood bakery in Los Angeles run by him and his brother-in-law, William Golant.

He was deeply upset over what had happened to his cake. Golant was furious. Newcomers from Chicago, they were barely eking out a living and the loss of a day’s production was a serious setback.

I Can Your Catch for Cash

My game-fish-canning idea is now a big business. Sportsmen say ii answers every fisherman’s prayer.

By Phillip Thurmond as told to Lee Edson

THERE may be fishermen who duck at the sight of a game warden but I’m not one of them. Wardens are my best friends. In fact, I wouldn’t be in my present unusual business if it hadn’t been for the imagination and encouragement of the marine warden of Eureka, California.

It sings a song of crispness! (Oct, 1930)

So now we know that Crackle was the oldest of the Krispie children, Snap and Pop had yet to be born in 1930.

Food Fakers Caught by Simple Kitchen Tests (Mar, 1932)

Food Fakers Caught by Simple Kitchen Tests

LOW prices for commodities stimulate the business of the food faker, permitting him to sell his adulterated and “doctored” foodstuffs at prices lower than the lowest that can possibly be asked for pure articles.

However clever the faker may be, science can catch him and his spurious concoctions by very simple means; means so simple indeed that every householder may take advantage of them to protect the health and well-being of his family.

Turkey Crossed With Chicken to Get Tasty Meat Fowl (Mar, 1932)

Turkey Crossed With Chicken to Get Tasty Meat Fowl

WHAT would you call the strange fowl in the photo at the right—a turken or a chickey? Either would be correct, for The thing is a cross between a turkey and a chicken.

With a view toward providing a new bird for table use, the Rev. Castor Ordonez, head of the department of biology at De Paul University, Chicago, bred a white Austrian Turkey with a Rhode Island Red hen and the turken—or chickey —was what happened.

The meat of the hybrid fowl is tastier than that of either of its parents and it yields two to three times as much edible flesh as a chicken. Father Ordonez is attempting to perpetuate the species.
