SMALLER ICE CREAM SODAS.
Makers Raise Price and Druggists Will Reduce Portions.
Less ice cream in the sundae or the ice cream soda served at Kansas City drug stores is the prospect as the summer season approaches. The wholesale ice cream makers have raised the price, and the druggists declare they must either cut down on the amount they serve to their customers or conduct the fountain business at a loss.
This matter was discussed last night at a meeting of the Kansas City Drug Club at the Coates House. The ice cream men were present to present their side of the case. They all indulged in a banquet and were entertained by a cabaret. The druggists also discussed the amount of money they would raise for the G.A.R. entertainment fund. W. C. Brown talked about the clean-up campaign.
