Man Looks For People Named On Old Soda Bottles

AKRON, Ohio (AP) - A Texas man is on a mission to find Ohioans whose names appear on old bottles of Mountain Dew.

The names belong to former employees of the Golden Age Beverage Company in Akron. In the 1960s, the owner of the company added the names of employees on the advice of a local advertising agency.

Dick Bridgforth of Katy, Texas, is working on a book about the soft drink. He says the rare bottles are popular with collectors, who are willing to pay thousands of dollars.
