Nov. 23, 1941: Dr. Herbert Shapiro of the Hahnemann Medical College of Philadelphia has discovered that if you place a bag of ice cubs on the side of a rabbit for 90 minutes, the rabbit may become pregnant.

“The ice treatment, Dr. Shapiro said, has caused virgin conception in a number of rabbits. The seeming miracle is only occasional.”

The Times reports that Sunday circulation has reached a new high: 456,000.

Jimmie Fidler says: From where I stand, it looks like Abbott and Costello should be planning, not to rake in all the gold while the vein is hot, but to spread out their nugget-grabbing over a period of years.

    Did the pregnancy look like frostbite?

    “Honest, Mom. I’ve been a good girl. I’ve just been hanging around with too many ice cubes.”
