Father, Son At Ada Are Navy Enlistees ADA. Sept. 22 — Feeling the need to do his part in defeating the Axis, Harry Vernon Castle, garage proprietor of Ada, and his son, John Park Castle, Monday joined the U. S. navy. The father, a former navy mAn, enlisted as an aviation machinist's mate and the son will enter a navy school to learn the same trade. Castle is closing his business in Ada.
"The firm contacted several glass
houses, offering a contest for the best
design for the Coca-Cola bottle. The
design had to be distinctive both to the
eye and the touch. This would replace
the bottles with straight sides and either
the bottler’s name embossed on the side
of the bottle, a paper label affixed to the
front, or both. Since the main method for
cooling bottles was to immerse them in
ice, the drinks were often not in plain sight
of customer, and the labels frequently
washed off as the ice melted. Coca-Cola
wanted a bottle that the consumer could
identify by touch alone."
"It was also during the 1916 convention in Georgia that a George H. Krempp of Jasper, Indiana, whose family had been in the soda bottling since 1870 and a Coca Cola franchise bottler since 1910, reportedly "acquired" one of the non-winning bottles which apparently had been submitted by the Graham Glass Company. It is believed the Graham bottle is a one of a kind and is currently owned by Gary Salb, who is the great-grandson of George H Krempp."
*See, young collectors are out there!Hi there, I got your email from doing some research on the web. But anyway I live in New Orleans and I’m a young bottle collector* just getting started, well I’ve acquired a bottle from Ohio. Julius Stephan 312 LudLow Ave-Clifton. I’m trying to find someone in Ohio that collects so I was trying to see if you know anything about this bottle. I found one document with record of this but absolutely nothing else. No other bottle like it, so do you have any information about this person or have you heard of him. Any information will be appreciated, Thank You.
