The first 'known' dance marathon winner was Alma Cummings,
who danced for 27 hours without stopping. A few months

by Vera Sheppard. The American Society of Teachers of
Dancing had a petition against them because it was "dangerous
and a disgrace to the art of dancing."
The Coca-Cola '6 pack' was introduced. The famed curved
bottle was made beginning in 1916. That specific curve
is actually copyrighted, so noone else can use it. Cocaine
was never an actual ingredient of the product, in spite
of what other people may believe.
The Coca-Cola logo is written in Spenserian font.
John Hertz, the owner of the Yellow Cab Company, bought
Walter Jacob's Chicago-based car rental company, and
renamed it after himself. The yellow/black Hertz logo
is a carry-on from the Yellow Cab Company.
