This is an original press photo. L. P. Cookingham, left, city manager of Kansas City, Missouri, listens while Billy Gilbert, Jr., manager of the airport restaurant, explains the finer points in preparing a shrimp remoulade dinner, a gift to the Kansas City official from La Louisiane restaurant in New Orleans. The dinner, in frozen, packaged sections, arrived Thursday via Mid-Continent Airlines, and was eaten by Friday by the city manager, his wife, and Mr. and Mrs. Paul Koontz. Koontz is a city councilman and close friend of City manager Cookingham. Both officials called the gift a neighborly gesture befitting New Orleans hospitality and a treat to jaded summer appetites."
