Let them eat dog
A SAN FRANCISCO Superior Court judge heard some meaty tales,
told with relish, as his torians, lawyers and diplomats tried to prove the
true origin of the humble hot dog. It was all part of the humorous Court of
Historical Review, and as San Francisco word expert Peter Tamony put it,
"There's been a little balony" in the mock trial Thursday. Assistant City ar-
chivist Daniel Murphy tried ot convince Judge Harry Low that a Malay tribe
called the Igorottes, brought here in the 19th Century, created the weiner.
"These people ate dog," and pilfered pets when supplies ran low, Murphy
contended. Philippine Consul General Romaro Arguelles agreed: "They
were referred to as 'hot' dogs, just like hot goods or hot stuff." Restauran-
teur Joe Jung insisted the hot dog really started out as "hot duck," created
in 1869 by Yao Wen-yuan, a Chinese cook. Others gave credit to New York as
the site of the first dogs. And Low ate it up-the New York theory, that is,
ruling the hot dog "probably had its spiritual home in New York." And no
one in the courtroom objected. E
Singing Tarzan swings
UPERMAN MIGHT be able to use a phone booth for a quick change
of clothes, but city streets just won't do for Tarzan. That's what pofice
told Randol Hite, a singing telegram service employee, after the 22-year-old
dressed as Tarzan and delivered a song to a bank employee. Everything
went smoothly Wednesday until Hite, of Prairie Village, Kan., returned to
his truck and began changing into his street clothes from the leopard-skin
costume of the Edgar Rice Burroughs character. A police officer arrived on
the scene and found Hite wearing only a beige swimming suit. The
policeman released Hite at the scene, but warned him to choose a more "ap-
propriate location to change his costume for future roles." Hite said his reer-
toire includes Superman, but he probably will opt for a more modest
dressing room than did the "Man of Steel." Q
