Jury will probe dancer death SAUNA (HNS) — A six- member Snlinc County coroner's jur.v investigate Thursday the circumstances of the death of Mr.s. Toni Todd Mischanko, .'12, an exotic dancer who had been appearing at the Red Pussycat Club at Salina. The coroner's inquest will be at 2 p.m. in a Saline County District Courtroom. County Coroner William Calderwood will select the jury and preside at the hearing. Mrs. Mischanko died early Friday at a Salina hospital of a gunshot wound in the head two hours after finishing her 4th Thursday night appearance at the club. Police said her husband, Terry, 29, said he and his wife argued at the 81-40 motel where she was staying during her week-long Salina appearance. Mischanko said his wife threatened suicide with a .38 caliber revolver and that he took the gun and removed the bullets. But several minutes later there was a gunshot. Investigative reports were filed with County Attorney David Knudson Monday. Knudson declined to comment on the reports. Included in the investigation were paraffin tests of the hands of both the victim and her husband. The tests were sent to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation Catering reflects pinch Hy The Associated Press . Caterers throughout the nation report "doggie bag" requests have increased along with the price of meat. And the high price of food and occasionally its scarcity have forced the catering industry to scramble to put together banquets that their customers can afford. In Los Angeles last week, Budd Catering Co. hosted a 450- plate dinner. "They wanted all the leftovers so they could sell them to the guests to help pay for the cost of the food," says owner Milton Budd. "And this was a group of doctors." Erwin Bonatz of Bieze Brothers Catering in Chicago says he rarely finds any food left on the plates of his customers. "They realize food is almost like gold," agrees Sal Calsoala of the Hyatt Regency O'Hare catering department. Some, like Master Caterers in Chicago, have discontinued the family-style service which allows customers to eat all they want. In New Orleans, the convention trade is ordering fewer catered meals, and less meat when they do. "We have a big convention in, the American Political Science Association, but they seem to be eating in the coffee shop," says Alvin Savarese, purchasing agent for Braniff Place. It is almost impossible for a group or organization to get a firm price on a catered meal. Bonatz says he has been unable to give a final price until the week of the party. Food cost increases have forced many caterers to raise their prices from 5 to 20 per cent in the last six months.
