Helen Kane came from a poor family in The Bronx and used to pick coal in the rainroad yards before going to school. When she made it big in Hollywood, her conscience went into spasms when she thought of all the poor friends back home. They wrote letters, telling how much they applauded her great success, and of how they were still eating circle steaks (bologna) for dinner. Miss Kane had an enormous and earthy sense of humor. She would wring her hands, thinking of all the poverty back home, and send Cadukuacs to the neighbors. She brought them right off the showrom floor in Hollywood and sent them east. Some dear ones wrote back that she forgot to mail the gasoline.
