   "Tonkatsu" results in _no_ Ancestry hits.  I then looked for "sushi" and
found "tonkatsu" with it in the same article.
   Just a great search engine here.

   2 February 1964, TIMES-RECORDER (Zanesville, Ohio), pg. 2, C Section, col.
_Japanese Restaurant in Tokyo Features_
_Specialties Requested By U.S. Embassy_
(...)(Col. 4--ed.)
   Sushi was popularized by a 16th century Shogun, or military dictator, he
said.  It is made with a special type of rice that sticks together when cooked,
and is pressed into cakes flavored with sugar and vinegar, then wrapped in
thinly sliced raw saltwater fish or seafood.
   Eijiro Tanaka, chef at Nippon, is one of the current top five, and
formerly was chef at the prime minister's official residence under Premier Yoshida.
   Among Tanaka's other specialties are tonkatsu--deep-fried pork fillet;
yakitori, broiled chicken with soy (Col. 5--ed.) sauce; suppon, a rare variety of
Japanese turtle said to have restorative properties; and O-teishoku, ideal
for diners who like to taste everything in a new restaurant.  It combines six to
ten different entrees.
   Besides the small sushi-tempura bar counter and a few Western style
tables, the restaurant has urban and provincial tatami rooms where guests sit on
cushions on the floor.


   For what it's worth, some "Windy City" results on Ancestry.  The first
direct hit is 1881.  (Our earliest is 1876.)
   First name "Windy" and last name "City" with keyword "Chicago" didn't work
well, so I used first name "Windy" and last name "Chicago."

   22 July 1881, FORT WAYNE DAILY GAZETTE (Fort Wayne, Indiana), pg. 4, col.
   The champion idiot for this year hails from St. Louis.  There is nothing
strange in the fact that an idiot should hail from that overgrown town, for a
rivalry in that line has been going on between the town aforesaid and the windy
city yclept Chicago.

   18 June 1889, NEWARK DAILY ADVOCATE (Newark, Ohio), pg. 3?, col. 4:
      _At the Wicked Windy City._
   CHICAGO, June 18.  First race, three-fourths of a mile, Hattie D won, No
More second, Antwerp third.

   18 December 1914, FORT WAYNE NEWS (Fort Wayne, Indiana), pg. 19, col. 4:
   Probably they call Chicago the Windy city because Ban Johnson lives there.

   15 August 1925, DENTON JOURNAL (Denton, Maryland), pg. 6, col. 5:
      _Chicago's Nicknames_
   Chicago has two nicknames.  The "windy city" is an illusion (sic) to the
high winds that prevail there, as well as to the general breeziness of the
business and social atmosphere that characterizes it.  Its other nickname is
"Porkopolis," meaning "City of Pork" and refers to the enormous trade in hogs that
is carried on in CHicago and the immense packing and meat establishments that
are one of the distinguishing features of the city.

   9 November 1927, CHILLICOTHE CONSTITUTION (Chillicothe, Missouri), pg. 4,
col. 5:
   CHICAGO, Nov. 9.--Tall building and a growing skyline have deprived
Chicago of its time-honored right to be known as the "windy city," according to
Prof. Henry J. Cox, government meteorologist.
   In giving Chicago's nickname the long count, the veteran weather prophet
said that while the average wind velocity here was 18.4 miles an hour in 1893,
it is now only 10.6.
   The skyline, he said, shelter the greater part of the city from the lake

   18 January 1929, CHRONICLE-TELEGRAM (Elyria, Ohio), pg. 8, col. 4:
   Chicago's nickname, "The Windy city," raises the question whether the city
is actually windier than others.  The answer is that the wind measurements in
Chicago show a higher average than in any other large city of the United
States (only slightly higher than in New York), but are surpassed at many smaller
towns on both the Atlantic and Pacific coasts.
