Page 2 MELVIN JOHNSON, Inc., Publishers Saturday Morning, October 22, 1938 THE OYSTER--THE TRUE SYMBOL OF GOOD EATING Who Ale The First Oyster? Dr. Lewis Rndclilfc, Director The Oyster Institute of N. America, Washington, D. C. Was fondness for oysters the deciding factor in Cacsar'i- determination to conquer Britain? Did you know that oyster farming was begun to relievo the numbing pain. His look of anguish quickly changed to one of astonishment and then to pleasure, when he discovered the delicious flavor of the oyster which million:; now enjoy regularly. In Colchester, England, where for generations the oyster reason is opened each September with great ceremony and feasting, the following explanation is offered: In old Colchester town, One thousand years ago tonight llie bravest man who ever lived Achieved his great renown. A Norman Knight--to fear unknown-- Fished an oyster from the Colonc; And with utter disregard of Fate That night the fin t shelled bivalve ate. And stendilv since that feat so bold The oyster's creased; fame each year in- regular excursions to the sea- , hot-they cnt him cold- to feast on s h e l f i s h ?

Why do chimpanzees and other primates make regular excursions to the seashore the great "Kitcnen niumcns" or oy.s tt , , , shell heaps along our coas't is located I at Demnrascotta, Maine, and contain-! And so tonight we celebrate million,.; of bushels of oyster shells left by the American aborigines. Today Cape Cod is as far north as oys- ; And formally inaugurate tcrs are taken commercially.

A noted [ u n d then letting it fall onto a rock, American expert on nutrition h a s ' breaking the shell, thus enabling said "In no case have any foods j these birds to gain access to the juicy gained more recognition as bavin? morsel inside. Dr. Heibert F. Pry- unique dietary value than have the therch, Director of the U. S. Fish- principal fish and shellfish." leries Biological Laboratory at Beau- This is the first of a series of articles on oysters in which the answers to the foregoing questions and many other interesting facts will be revealed. You will learn of the basic reasons why oysters, prized by epicures, have held fir^t place on the menu for more then 2,000 years, and why "No other article of diet can compare with the oyster in food value." Before delving into the past history of this delicacy of the sea, replete with interest, it is well to remember that the oyster is an edible bivnlvcd shellfish belonging- to the genus Ostrca including at least one hundred species differing considerably in size, shape, flavor, and food value. In some 35 countries the oyster supports a commercial fishery and in still other countries enters into the food supply. The principal producing countries in the order of their importance, are the United States, France, England, Holland, China, Japan, India, Ireland, and New South fort, North Carolina, who has delved deeply into the private life of the oyster, tells me that cement roads extending down to the seashore have proved to be a boon to thc-e water- birds. No longer does the bird have to hunt for a convenient vock and accurately drop his oyster so as to score a hit. Nowadays he simply poises over one of these ribbons of manmade cement and lets the luckless oyster fall thereon. Without attempting to decide the question as to who ate the first oyster, or how he succeeded in prying apart the two calcareous shellr- in order to gain access to the delicate flesh inside, we may state with confidence that no nation has been blessed with such an abundance oi oysten= as occur along the coasts of the United States. In fact oysters are our most widely dsitributed seafood, occurring in bays, coves, estuaries, and mouths of riven* from Cape Cod to Texas, and the coastal waters of ,,, . . , , j t h e three Pacific States. Furthermore, Wales. A quarter of a century ago , CB i sI ation has been enacted Uncle Jim Sat?s world production was estimated at 42,000,000 bushels, with a value of §25,000,000, 88 per cent in quantity and GO per cent in value being credited to the United States. "He wat; a bold man that first ate an oyster," said Dean Swift, but hav- inpf eaten one he craved more and more. I have often wondered, not that the ancient member of the human race enjoyed- the oyster, but just how he succeeded in separating the two shells to gain access to the delicate tissues making up the meat of the oyster. Certainly primitive man had no implement comparable to the oyster knife of today. Was it the result of an accident such as has been ascribed to an American aboriginec long before the white man landed on our shores? According to legend, thU Indian brave, spear in hand, watching for an unwary fish was attracted to a peculiar looking stone in the water, divided in two slightly separated halves. Thinking it would make an attractive gift for his squaw, he reached for it as his fingers closed around it, he howled in dismay for the stone had suddenly snapped shut, imprisoning one of his fingers. Seizing his tomahawk, with a mighty blow, he broke the shells apart a n d ; put his injured finger into his mouth i to foster the growing of oysters in the waters of Alaska. But i-ome of my readers, living fai from the seashore, may ask, why should I be interested in oysters. Undoubtedly you know about, if you have not actually suffered from, deficiency diseases such ai- anemia, goiter, pellagra, etc. Oysters belong to the class of protective foods which arc rich in minerals and vitamins, a subject to be discussed later on in this series. DISPELLING TIIE FOG I wonder what the spokesmen of the Republican party would do without the feuds they constantly conjure- up as afflicting us Democrats. When they do not talk about the war to the knife between the President and those members of the House and Senate whose renominations were opposed, they are putting out sadistic views regarding the undying enmity be- .wcen the White House and National Chairman James A. Farley. In these lighly apochryphal endeavors they sec death and destruction to the ma- ority party. They make no distinction between political difference; on methods and HOMEWOOD A NEW STIEFF STERLING SILVER PATTERN This chaste and flowing colonial design combines charm with distinctiveness, simplicity with dignity; It lends itself to modern decorative schemes--perfectly: HOMEWOOD, newest of Stieff masterpieces In sterling silver, is authentic In pattern; euperb in craftsmanship.
