THUSDAY, JULY 5, 1951 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS 11 Ice Cream Licks the Spoon For 100th Birthday Tune By RICHARD KLEINER t, NEA Stuff Correspondent (ifEW YORK—(NEA) — Happy 1" birthdRy to you, happy birthday to you, hnppy birthday, dear chocolate, vanilla, strawberry and butter pecan, happy birthday to you! This year is the 100th anniversary of the invention of ice cream, and it is an event that should be treated with respect. After all, if ice cream hadn't been invented, what would an ice ^-ream sundae be like? Just a 'maraschjno cherry adrift in a syrup sea. An ice cream soda would be a pretty blah affair, and an ice cream cone would be an unemployed cracker. The great invention was the work of a Baltimore milkman named Jacob Fussell. This barnyard Pasteur had some surplus cream and found that it tasted pretty good frozen and flavored. It still does. * « * * ' But consider bow a whim of fate has changed the course of our culinary civilization. There was old Jake in the barnyard with a couple of quarts of cream. What to do with it? Luckily, he thought first of freezing it and serving it cold. But suppose the idea had come (o him to cook it and serve it hot. It could have been that way, just as easily. ~ Today, things around the neigh. V)orhood drugstore would have been quite different. It would be empty in Summer and very busy in Winter. People would como in and ask for a dish of hot cream. Instead of syrups like chocolate and sirawbevry, maybe a hot cream sundae wouid be flavored with different gravies like chicken or beef. They wouldn't bo garnished with a cherry and whipped ^cream, but with, perTiaps, a cur- HOT 5* licue of pimiento or a boiled potato. No banana splits, of course, but maybe a hot dog a la mode. * * * » Anil, In the dead of Winter, a little truck with a built-in heating unit and a set of bells would come jangling by to. sell hot cream. That would be the 111 Humor man. But, fortunately, Fussell turned first to thoughts of freezing his extra cream. And tiday, with the industry he created ending its first centu y, it's time to evaluate ice cream's contributions to our way of life. The ice cream industry, employing thousands of people, is a profitable one. Everything is frozen but its assets. Ice cream, in turn, has created other industries', such as cone making, straws, syrups and diet experts. Ice cream has helped to cut the nation's lawns. A payment to the brat next door will make him mow your lawn. Why does he want the money? For a Super- Atomic - DnLuxe - Special . Cal- oric-Marshallow Sundae. Ice cream has improved the nation's speech. Speech instructors say a mobile tongue is vital to good diction. And there's no exercise as good for the tongue as licking a double ice cream cone. Darting after s drop down the side of the cone is wonderful practice for a rolling "r." Ice cream has, in fact, had a tremendous influence on the economic, social and morale life of the world. If it weren't for Jake Fussell and his bright idea, we'd be living in an ice-creamlcss age, which is an unpleasant prospect. So lift your spoons on high and eat this toast to ice cream. Here's a wish thet's most heartfelt: May ice cream prosper and never melt. IVY-DRY STOPS ITCHING and quickly, gently, safely dries up blisters of POISON IVY oak or sumac.

This question is being pondered today by some high level brains in the Army and Air Force. It was posed by a red-haired Irish corporal who must remain anonymous until his case is decided. Meantime he is staying with a frontline unit—delighted with his new role as a rifle wielder. A short, stocky fellow with freckles, he smiled as he related the strange circumstances. "I was stationed with an air unit in southern Korea," said the flying Irishman who has served almost two years with the Air Force. "One day.I went on pass— and wandered away from my party." * * * SOUTH KOREAN POLICE noted his given fatigues, assumed he was an army replacement, and plunked him on a train headed toward the fighting front. "I got to a replacement company, but I didn't say anything to anyone." he continued. "I hopped on the first truck that left, hunting for a way back to Taegu." He was carried swiftly north with replacements.

By that time I was really worried about what the Air Force would do," he sighed. The company immediately informed the Air Force. At his re­ quest, however, he was allowed to become an infantryman until his status could be settled. Rubbing his feet, the Irishman Jaughed "the company save me all the equipment I needed but nobody told me about all that walking." "But the infantry is full of swell guys. I am hoping to stay with I them, at least until I can reach my goal —a Combat Infantrymw!* Badge." i M^tfttiiiiif iiiiiiiiitit itiiitiiiiiitiiiiiiif iiiiiiiiiiff iiiiiiiitiiiaiiiiiti iiiiiiiiiiiiiif iiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitf ittiiiiii>iitiiiiititmu= I ANNOUNCING... !
