Mildred Day, 92, who with Malitta Jensen developed Rice Krispies treats -- the chewy, gooey finger food made with Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal, marshmallows and butter -- in the 1920s as a fund-raising treat for a Camp Fire Girls group, died June 9 in Bloomington, Minn. The cause of death was not reported.
She also made the concoction to help promote the cereal of the Kellogg Co., where she had worked after receiving a degree in home economics from Iowa State University. She worked almost nonstop for two weeks developing the snack. The snacks became so popular that Kellogg's now sells the treats as individually wrapped snack bars.
Saul David, 74, a film producer whose credits included "Fantastic Voyage" and "Our Man Flint" and who was credited with helping discover Raquel Welch and helping make Burt Reynolds and James Coburn into leading men, died June 7 in Culver City, Calif. He had congestive heart failure.
