CB SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5, 1996 NATION THE SALINA JOURNAL V COCA-COLA Is Coca-Cola's secret recipe for sale? Cola giant says great-grandson of company's co-founder doesn't have the real thing By MARC RICE The Associated Press A TLANTA — Over the years, many have claimed to have the original Coca-Cola recipe, only to be met with skepticism. Now, the great-grandson of the company's cofounder says he has the real thing and wants to sell. The reason is simple: He needs the money. "I'm not in good financial shape. I'd sell it, if the price was right," Frank Robinson said Friday. Problem is, the recipe — which collectibles experts say could fetch up to $20,000, strictly as a historical document — is in his estranged wife's hands. Patti Robinson, who contends her husband gave her the recipe as a premarriage "trinket" in 1981, refuses to part with it. She rejected an offer by Robinson to split the proceeds 50-50 with her and wants to give it to their 13-year-old son when he's an adult. Robinson denied he gave his wife the recipe, describing it as "marital property" that somehow ended up in her safe deposit box instead of his when they separated. The Coca-Cola Co., meanwhile, said Friday it doubts the authenticity of the Robinson recipe. Frank Robinson insists it's real. But disputes between the Robinson family and Coca-Cola have been around since the days of the first Frank Robinson. The Associated Press Frank Robinson would like to sell what he claims is the original Coca-Cola recipe if he can get it from his ex-wife. Called by many historians the unsung hero of the company's success, the great-grandfather Frank Robinson named the drink and created the signature script logo still used today. According to some histories, Robinson was bitter when his partner, Coca-Cola inventor John Pemberton, sold the formula behind his back. Robinson says the recipe was among a batch of his great-grandfather's old Coca-Cola papers that he received from his father shortly before his father's death in 1970. Robinson's family amassed a fortune, much of it in Coca-Cola stock. But he was cut out of an inheritance during a family feud in the 1980s. And now 57 and stricken with cancer, the former commercial airline pilot gets by on about $21,000 a year as a real-estate broker south of Atlanta. The recipe is but a side item in a dispute over support payments that brought Robinson and his wife to Fulton County Superior Court on Friday. Robinson said the Coca-Cola recipe includes such ingredients as "gingerene," coca leaves and the super-secret mystery ingredient "7X." Different versions of the recipe, published in several books, say "7X" is a mix of oils from lemon, orange, coriander, nutmeg and cinnamon. Patti Robinson said she has no doubt the recipe she has is the key to Coca-Cola, even though she had a brewer mix up a batch earlier this year and found it had a citrus taste very different from the Coke we know today. But it is doubtful that anyone, even armed with the formula, could challenge the $18 billion empire. For one thing, Atlanta-based Coca-Cola has periodically made minor changes in the formula over the years. Rob Baskin, a Coca-Cola spokesman, said the Robinson recipe is merely the latest in a long line of claims that have never been authenticated. Coke says the only copy of the original recipe — Pemberton's — is locked in a vault. T JACK KEVORKIAN T CONGRESS Congress toughens 'date-rape drug' law Bill for the first time would make it a crime to use a drug as a weapon By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Rapists who subdue their victims with Rohyp- nol or other "date-rape drugs" risk up to 20 years added to their sentences under legislation sent Friday to President Clinton. The House passed the bill by a voice vote. The Senate approved it Thursday. The legislation makes it a crime to use a drug as a weapon. The 20-year sentence applies to use of an illegal drug as a tool of rape or other violent crime, as well as possession, manufacture or distribution of an illegal drug with intent to use it in commission of a violent crime. Simple possession of Rohypnol .carries up to three years in prison. Passage of the bill follows a sharp increase in reported use of Rohypnol pills, known on the street as "roofies." The odorless, colorless, tasteless tranquilizer- can be dropped into unknowing victims' drinks, causing them to pass out and have little memory of what happens next. Although Rohypnol is illegal in the United States, it is used legally in other countries to treat sleeplessness, anxiety, convulsions and muscle tension. Suicide doctor save life for a change Kevorkian assists paramedics after cyclist is hit by a car By The Associated Press PONTIAC, Mich. — Dr. Jack Kevorkian didn't end the suffering of a bicyclist who was hit by a car. He did help paramedics treat him. But this was one incident Kevorkian Would have preferred stay a secret, The Oakland Press of Pontiac reported today. "I wish this wouldn't get out because you know the kind of jokes that will come," Kevorkian said. "They'll say the guy looked up and thought it was worse than it was." The outspoken advocate of assisted-suicide for the seriously ill was among a group of people at the scene of the Tuesday evening accident in West Bloomfield Township when paramedics arrived. "He came over and advised the paramedics that he had been observing the patient, and rendered an opinion," Fire Department U. Joe Slawek said. "He said the p*.; tient didn't lose consciousness." The 39-year-old man was taken to a hospital. Slawek said he didn't know the man's name. Kevorkian said the man may have suffered a fractured skull. But were it up to Kevorkian, no one would have heard about his, deed. His attorney, Geoffrey Fieger, said Kevorkian's actions didn't surprise him. "He's a physician first and foremost. He's portrayed in the media as someone obsessed with death. He helps sufferirig human beings. ; If someone's not near death, he' helps them, too." -1 As Fieger tells it, Kevorkian was not far from his West Bloomfield; Township home when he came upon an accident near a nature trail, "He was bleeding all over, and Jack provided the first aid," Fieger said. I Slawek said Kevorkian "was> mainly there as an observer arid' rendered a medical opinion." T FOOD AND DRUG ADMINISTRATION FDA raises standards for design of medical devices By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The makers of heart valves, diabetes tests and other medical devices will soon have to follow the same rigorous rules to design new products that the automobile and space industries use. The Food and Drug Administration issued new regulations Friday requiring medical manufacturers to perform these "design controls" in an effort to cut the number of medical devices recalled every year because of unforeseen defects;; "Healthwise, this should have;a : ; dramatic improvement," said-, Joseph Levitt, the FDA's medical; device policy chief. •",'.•• The medical device industry;^ had supported the changes, which i some large manufacturers already ; have implemented. -; "This will go in the direction of; reducing the number of problems" '• that force recalls, said Jim Benson of the Health Industry Manufa(>' turers Association.
