Abstract:
Swiss-born Moravian Christian Winkler first came to Salem in 1807 where he and his descendants operated a bakery until the late 1920s. In 1968, Old Salem, Inc. restored the building, and manager Mary Jane Smith and her employees make Moravian breads, cookies, and cakes. They wear outfits appropriate to the time period, and still use the big brick oven originally installed in the bakery. In 1977, Winkler Bakery began packaging and selling its sugar cake mix so that people could make the confection in their own homes.

Abstract:
Dr. Benjamin Ershoff and Dr. Samuel Wildman, both research biologists at the University of California at Los Angeles, have recently discovered the tobacco leaf contains the protein fraction-1. Fraction-1 contains all of the essential amino acids and can be used to supplement low-protein diets and help to meet nutritional requirements of patients suffering gastro-intestinal disorders. The protein yield from an acre of tobacco is four times that of a soybean field, and tobacco protein has no odor or taste.\r\n

Abstract:
Recently, two hundred deaf people in Charlotte received telephone-teletypes, or TTYs. Volunteers in a group called Contact operate as a go-between, connecting TTY users to people with regular phones. The volunteers also schedule doctors' appointments and dinner engagements. Currently, the only emergency agency with a TTY is the Charlotte Police Department which has so far proven ineffectual in responding to distress calls sent via the TTY.\r\n
