In 1954, as president of the Zeus Corp., in Brooklyn, Robert L. stern is one of the world's biggest manufactureres of cigaret holders, all of them monotonously alike in size and shape. After hours, Stern designs and makes the ogg-shaped cigaret holders shown here. Although Stern had no plans for ever putting them on the market, he finds he gets a certain release - and a food deal of attention - from his ingenious gadgets.
