Mr. Benesch left hiss 21st and School street home at 5:30 Monday afternoon and had informed his family that he would return soon. His car was first noted at 5:55 p.m. by Harry Thiell, a watchman on an FERA project at the railroad Crossing. The lights were turned on but the watchman paid little attention to the machine, believing that a motorist was apparently resting at the side of the highway. When the car remained at the spot for more than two hours, Thiell, with attendants of a nearby filling station, became curious and approached the machine. They found the body of Mr. Benesch lying at the side of the car and a pail of sand on the rung board. Apparently the ex-service man became exhausted and suffered a heart attack later. The motor of the car was running. Coroner Summoned Coroner Dr. G. A. Rau was summoned, arriving in 10 minutes. He pronounced Mr. Benesch’s death due to a heart attack. There will be no inquest.

EDWARD C. BERNERS Edward Berners, Inventor Of Ice Cream Sundae, Dies TWO RIVERS (Special)—Edward C. Berners, 76, Two Rivers confectioner who early in 1900 poured chocolate over ice cream and thus created the first ice cream sundae, died this noon at the home of his sister, Mrs. Albert Pilon, at Fond du Lac. He had been at Fond du Lac for the last two months. The body will be brought to this city for burial but no funeral arrangements had been completed this afternoon. Mrs. Pilon is the only immediate survivor. The name “ice cream sundae” was given to the dish by a Manitowoc girl whose identity never has been learned. Berners credited the idea of putting flavor on ice cream to a Two Rivers man, George Hallauer. Had Popular Place Berners ran a confectionery store here that was a rendezvous for Two Rivers and Manitowoc young people. At that time a dish of ice cream was just that and nothing more. Hallauer dropped into the Berners place one evening, saw a bottle of chocolate flavoring used for sodas and asked that some of it be poured over his ice cream. Other patrons tried the dish and Berners’ business increased by leaps and bounds. The late George Giffy operated the most popular ice cream parlor in Manitowoc at that time. When Berners started to dispense chocolate coated ice cream to his customers, it created a bit of comment among the young folks in Manitowoc who visited the Berners store. Giffy went to Two Rivers and asked Berners what he was doing with his ice cream by putting chocolate on it for flavoring. He said the practice would put an owner out of business for a nickel a dish and said his Manitowoc customers demanded that he “decorate” the dishes similarly. Giffy only served the chocolate dishes on Sunday and that started the whole affair. One week-day a small girl came in to the Giffy place to ask for the dish. She was told it was only served on Sundays. “Then it must be a Sunday,” was the little girl’s comment. Giffy heard the comment and named the dish a “sundae” and it has been known by that ever since. Refused Radio Invite. Berners two years ago refused an invitation to go to New York with all expenses paid to go on the radio and tell how he had invented the ice cream Sunday. Berners invented a “glue pencil” which was a handy way to apply mucilage. During his later years in the confectionery business he manufactured these pencils and continued to do so after his retirement as a confectioner about 15 years ago.
