Wishbones Made Her Dreams Come True (Jun, 1939)
Wishbones Made Her Dreams Come True
Scraps from a thousand Sunday dinner tables form the raw-materials for a novel and thriving industry built up by Delphine Binger of New York City. Miss Binger collects the wishbones from turkeys, chickens, and other poultry, treats them by a special electrical and chemical process, inscribes them with special greetings, dresses them up with ribbon bows and sprays of artificial flowers, and sells them as decorative good-luck novelties to accompany wedding, birthday, and graduation presents, and gifts for other special occasions. Among her specialties are wishbones bearing tiny stethoscopes for medical-school graduates.
