amily's Meat Portion Should Be Givem S 3e's No Cook, Becomes Kitehen Idol By MIRIAM TIIE1LEK inited Press Staff Correspondent Madison, Wis., (U.R) -- Gordon Sump, a practical promotion man ·fio shuns the kitchen as much 5 any man, never thought he'd ecome known across the country pi- fathering a cookbook. . But, Crump's venture into do- [lestic science has made him itcjien idol. A couple of years ago Crump, ·emotion chief for Wisconsin's ricalture department, figured lat recipes using butter, milk and 'jieese might help advertise his ' ate's dairy specialties. He asked Wisconsin housewives 0 telj him their favorite concoc- I l :ons. From 18,000 entries, 350 re- 'pes were picked by the state's Jading home economists. Crump .·impiled the cookbook, and illus- ·'ated it with color photographs. IThe nhotsraphy gave him the biggest headache. For example. It took 12 men 13 hours to take one picture because the "tears" in the "eyes" of the Swiss cheese dried out so quickly'under the lights. After a year and a half's work the first books began rolling oIJ the press and Crump modestly sent sample copies to' each state governor and agriculture department, offering to send "a few more" if they liked the book. At that point, he planned to distribute about 25,000 copies and keep the remainder until after the war. But every governor and agriculture commissioner wanted more and more copies, sometimes 5,000 more. Crump wrote a small story for Wisconsin newspapers about his book. Immediately, 100,000 housewives besieged him for copies, despite the generous amounts of rationed butter and hard-to-sccure dairy products called for in the recipes. Consequently, Crump now is rationing the last of his 150.000 initial supply and asking the state legislature to finance a second printing. Harry H.
