At Katz's Delicatessen, the Staff Wears T-shirts That Read "Send a Salami to Your Boy in the Army." Who Came up With that Near-Rhyme?

Louis G. Schwartz, who worked during World War II at the Sixth Avenue Delicatessen but never at Katz's, concoted the slogan to support his son-in-law, a German P.O.W.
