19th-century political cartoonist Thomas Nast created three of America's most enduring icons: the donkey and elephant of American politics, and the modern image of Santa Claus!

Con Agra's flour mill in Hastings, Minn., has been operating for 150 years and today can process two square miles of grain daily!

A lawsuit had been filed against the city of Norwalk, Conn., by a city clerk whose coworkers wore too much perfume!

< TASK > Answer the questions.

(1) What did Thomas Nast create?
