"If the beer drinkers were our only customers, we'd have gone out of business during prohibition." in Philadelphia, known for its brotherly love, they even have a pretzel sundae-pmade of ice cream thick chocolate sauce, and crurn bled pretzels. Here are a few historical facts about the pretzel: It was invented, according to legend, by a monk about 610. He baked bits of dough, molded in the form of arms folded in an attitude of prayer, an gave the-m to children who had learned their lessons well. He called themi Roy Franks of San Francisco, Calif.

"pretiolas or little rewards/" and Austrians converted the name to pretzels. In the 16th century besieging Turks throught up a ha If-baked sceme to capture Vienna by burrowing beneath its great walls at night. They overlooked the fact that bakers twisted pretzels and baked bread during those hours. Hearing the scraping of the tunneling Turks the bakers quit work in their cellars, dug tunnels themselves until they met the enemy and routed them. To reward their valor, the kin§ gave them no dough but awarded the bakers their own coat of arm a stalwart pretzel upright between two menacing lions. This sign is still used by many bakers throughout the world as an emblem of their trade. The first commercial pretzel in America was baked by Julius Stur Sis in 1861 in Lititz. Pa., and today there are still 58 pretze manufacturers in Pennsylvania ilone. 'If all the pretzels produced his coming year were poured into •ne cellophane bag," said Tisdale, shaking his head, "It would weigh 180 million pounds. Think o£ hat!" Why just think of it?

Robertson and Chiang conferred for seven hours in the. past two days, but American and Nationalist officials refused to reveal the sub- ect of the discussions- except thai U.

The Nationalists promised to go nlong with tho American aclvine to let up on the raids on Red China for "a definite period of time only." This time-limit was not elar- fied. The diplomats pointed out that saw the reported agreement as an Amercan effort to a'void nn all-out conflict on the Chinn const.
