June 14, 1996

Mildred Day,92, who helped develop the chewy, gooey recipe for Rice Krispies Treats, died Sunday in Bloomington, Minn.

She worked for Kellogg Co. in the 1920s, when she and Malitta Jensen came up with the treat -- a mixture of Rice Krispies, marshmallows and butter. The treats were a fund-raising venture for a Camp Fire Girls group and a way to promote the cereal.

Robert Morey,83, who designed the seal for the U.S. Marshals Service and interested President John F. Kennedy and Sen. Edward M. Kennedy in painting, died of cancer June 5 in Rockport, Mass. He worked for John F. Kennedy during his first campaign for Congress in 1946, and later was an aide to Mr. Kennedy in the Senate. The president named him U.S. marshal for Massachusetts in 1961.
