Has anyone heard of secret sister pickles?

I was reading some old newspaper articles from 1946 and found a reference to homemade "secret sister pickles," which the author of the article claims are excellent. I've looked online and through several vintage cookbook collections, and I can't find any reference to these pickles. Has anyone heard of them? Do you have a recipe?
