DELAWARE COUNTS (PA.) DAILY TIMES Monday, June 22, 1970 'Think Mink 9 belongs to Jack Gasnick By NORTON MOCKRIDGE NEW YORK - We all have our troubles, but it seems to me that Jack Gasnick has more than his share. His greatest trouble is that people are always trying to steal his "Think Mink." Maybe you'd think people wouldn't want to steal it and maybe you'd think that he doesn't own it. But they do, and he docs. "Think Mink." according to Gasnick, is not "just two words in the English language." "NO, SIR," he says, "It is belonging to me. I was a 10- year-old boy when I incorporated the term 'Think Mink' in a drawing contest conducted by the John Wanamaker department store on behalf of wildlife conservation. I still remember my picture of a scared mink in a fenced pen." Then, during the Depression (not the current one). Jack Gasnick worked his way through the City College of New York and his main source of income was the mail-order sale of make-believe rabbits' feet key chains. He sold thousands of them by putting advertisements in newspapers and magazines under the title "Think Mink." Later, with the U. S. Patent Office having given "Think Mink" official recognition as Jack's brainchild, he started to use the phrase in interstate commerce to further the cause of conservation. But lots of other people, mainly those who were selling mink, started to use the term, too. THIS GOT Jack all riled up and he began to rattle his lawyers at these offenders. "In test cases," he told me, "I have stopped EMBA; Alexander's, Inc.; Best Co.; Mays: Arnold Constable, and just about every fur market in tile country from using my 'Think Mink.' And today the only legal use of the phrase is on a line of stuffed plush toys and novelties that I license." Recently, a p r o m i n e n t m a n ufacturer approached Jack with a deal for the name and Jack stoutly turned him down. The guy makes false mustaches, sideburns and beards. Jack says he also is the licenser for various other words and expressions that he says he thought up. These include: CROSS AT the Green . . . Not in Between, Buckle Up For Safety, The K i d Establishment, and Beatniks. He hasn't had too much trouble with anybody pirating Norton Mockridge the last three, but he's had a whoop-de-doo with the City of New York over Cross at the Green . . . Not in Between. Seems that the city for some years has had stickers made up, imprinted with that admonishment, and has glued them to thousands of lampposts. "Tliis year, however," says Jack, "you will notice that there are no such signs stuck to the lampposts. The reason is that the New York City Traffic Department stubbornly refuses to show m y registration symbol -an R in a circle just above the word Green -- and so five million pedestrians are going to miss an old and faithful rhymincler." JACK'S COMPANY, located 350 E. 52nd St., is fittingly enough, called the "Cross at the Green . . . Not in Between Enterprises," and, according to Jack, it specializes in an incredible variety of things, in addition to slogans and phrases. Listed on the letterhead are these tilings the company does, handles or thinks about: safety packages, children, pedestrians, drivers, probem parents, accident preventers, stickers, posters and-jingles. And at the bottom of the letterhead is a n o t h e r rhyminder: "Keep Your Eye on Small Fry." Nobody's tried to steal that -- yet. ANOTHER businessman here in New York is Buddy Noro. He has a ghost in his restaurant. And he's glad. The restaurant is the Wine Cellar on Hudson Street in Greenwich Village and the ghost, called Elizabeth, is a very mean dame who has scared the hell out of some of the customers. "She's a witch, or some word to that effect," says Buddy. ELIZABETH picks up the forks and spoons and -tosses them around, she sometimes just stands and stares at the diners, and once when the bartender opened the big r e f r i g e r a t o r , she took everything out, one thing at a time. The bartender shook so he couldn't pour any drinks. Buddy who fancies 'himself as a medium of sorts has been trying to communicate with Elizabeth, but so far she hasn't responded. Just haunts the joint. 'Brothers 9 honored Two Delaware C o u n t y ! residents have earned awards! for participation in the Big Brother Association, Philadelphia.

Now tuition hikes in this same range are being announced by college after college for the year begining this September. At Princeton.
