At the Hotel New Yorker there was much ado about nothing, the nothing being the hole in the doughnut.

Edward Falasca, doughnut expert, announced that the improved official size of the doughnut hole for 194S would be three-eighths of 'an inch, one-half an inch smaller than the current size, in round figures of course. While Falasca was thus making nothing smaller, on the other side of town in the Waldorf-Astoria a former Brooklyn boy, Harry Rolnick, a hat manufacturer from Garland, was trying to make man brighter in the head. Colorful Hats for Men Rolnick wasn't trying to change their intellectual style but their hat style, by introducing more colorful headpieces.

It seems dunkers of the same 12-ounce bulk for sinking their sinkers. "The important factor was the grip." The new size permits greater flexibility. "Flexibile fingers are as necessary for doughnut dunking as for playing the piano," declared. "As a matter of fact, harp playing and balalaika playing are the best ways to practice for dunking." At the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel the other reformer, Rolnick, was interested in people's apparel, not their appetite. But he was also interested in dough, the $12.50 to $40 necessary to pay for one of his new custom-made hats.

He's giving men the bird, with hats in bird colors. There's finch, kind of cream-like; thrush, a bit rusty; dove, like beige; bluebird, like bluebird. "Men are as vain as women but they lack the courage to wear bright colors," Rolnick said.
