Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12-THE LETHBRIDQI HERALD TMMOey, z, Restaurants developing taste for pre-cooked convenience foods The use of pre-cooked convenience foods by restaurants has increased 10 times in the last four years and will increase 10 times again in the next four years, predicts the vice-president of major food wholesaler. Dave Llewellyn of Scott National Company Ltd. said Monday more restaurant owners are switching to convenience foods because they are cheaper and faster. With the nitrogen freezing process now in use, the quality of these foods is just as good as foods that are prepared at the time they are used, he claims. Although the original price of a pre-cooked product is higher, the price of the finished product is cheaper because preparation costs are reduced, Mr. Llewellyn said. Mass production also accounts for consistent quality "They (pre-cooked foods) all come out the same." Other advantages are reduced waste and consistency which allows a restaurant operator to know exactly how Tenders shocker for Fort Macleod much to charge for it. If an owner buys a box of chicken with 40 pieces in it, he will know exactly what each piece is worth and what to charge for the meal the chicken is served with. Mr. Llewellyn made his comments during Food-A- Rama 74, held at the El Rancho Convention Centre Monday. It was sponsored by Scott National and presented new food ideas for the food service industry. There were 42 displays at Food-A-Rama by processors and manufacturers from across North America. Most of the foods on display that were prepared were pre-cooked. They included all types of pre-cooked potatoes, pre- cooked chicken, hor d'oeuvres, Chinese food and sea-food. There were even foot-long hard boiled eggs. These long eggs were manufactured in Two Hills. They are frozen and packed in long plastic tubes. Mr. Llewellyn said many fast-service food outlets FORT MACLEOD (Staff) Town council Monday night opened five tenders on the centennial library and senior citizens complex here but did not award the contract pending further study of the bids by Underwood, McLellan and Associates Ltd., designer The bids were: Henry Hardy Construction, Ed Flack Construction, Keller Construction, Western Industries Construction, and Getkate 'Construction, The bids shocked Coun. John Davis. "These just about bowled me over. I never thought it would be anywhere near that he said. Underwood, McLellan and Associates had estimated, however, that the building would cost But it wasn't the price that spurred Mayor Charlie Edgar's comments.

Cancer CAN Be Beaten Please Support this Daffodil Salel such as drive-in restaurants use pre-cooked foods because of the time saved in preparing them. Airlines and hospitals also were big users. John Wichers of Sven Ericksen's Family Restaurant says the only convenience food they use is French fried potatoes. He said the cost of labor involved in cutting potatoes into French fries was very high and because pre-prepared French fries were made in bulk they were cheaper. He could understand some smaller restaurants using pre-cooked foods because many of them couldn't afford chefs. Al Hober of the El Rancho Motor Hotel said he used some pre-cooked products. But he feels they all taste the same. If a person went to two different restaurants and ate chicken that was pre-cooked, it would taste the same, he said. Foot long egg sliced egg the easy way "I am a heating man and I am asking the said Mayor Edgar. "It is absolutely ridiculous as far as heating is concerned. Why put four by eight-foot ducts up into the false ceiling and then blow it back He suggested the heating ducts be set under the slab floor. Coun. Phil Hodnett said the bids were not that far apart but the length of time it will take each contractor to build it varies considerably (from about 120 days to "I am looking more at the time said Coun. Hodnett. "You start it April 1 and you are looking at a July completion, whereas we are looking at June 1. He said he would like to see it finished in 120 days. Coun. Hodnett thanked A. A. Neddow, president of the Fort Macleod Senior Citizens' Association, and member Harry Bedingfield for attending and snowing their interest in the building. Mr. Neddow said the senior citizens' portion of the building, square feet, isn't large enough. "Do you realize we have close to 500 pensioners in this he asked. "I am saying it is no bigger than the old town hall was and we used to pack that thing to the doors time and time again." Mr. Bedingfield said he still thinks the building should have a basement. But town administrator Roy White said it saves not to have one. "It's just dollars and said Coun. Hodnett. "We can't start changing plans said Mayor Edgar. "It will mean starting all over again." "I think the people of Fort Macleod need a library and a senior citizens' complex this said Coun. 'Hodnett, adding that council should pick a tender, award the contract and get on with the job. This will be done, perhaps as soon as Friday. Meanwhile, local citizens will be raising more money for this Fort Macleod centennial project. The provincial grant of and the federal grant of just won't stretch far enough to pay all the bills. ART DIETRICH DENTURECLINIC DENTAL MECHANIC Schwart? Bldg. Ill 5th Si S Phone 328-4095 Festival at mid-week Excellence in concerto By PAT ORCHARD The Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Lucien Needham performed to an audience of about 350 people at the Yates Memorial Centre Tuesday evening. The program began with Rossini's Overture to "The Italian Girl in Mr. Needham's way with Rossini has obviously matured over the years, as he secured some excellent playing from the orchestra, both in tempo and dynamics. The highlight of the evening was Beethoven's Violin Concerto in D major, with Howard Leighton Brown as soloist. The basic pattern for the entire first movement was set by the five introductory taps on the drum. This was followed by a particularly radiant theme from the woodwinds, and a long orchestral introduction. The soloist showed great dexterity, producing at times a somewhat pleasant cantabile, together with splendid workmanship in the cadenzas. However, he did have his intonation problems. His playing became strident, and there were many occasions when the exact centre of the note was difficult to define Nevertheless, the orchestra kept its composure admirably, bailing him out of his difficulties on more than one occasion. The rondo had a great deal of charm and vivacity, and the performance ended with a brisk and triumphant coda. Indeed, it was the Lethbridge Symphony which deserved the most praise in this concerto. Had the performance ended there, it would have been a truimph for Mr. Needham. Unfortunately, the second half of the program displayed still uneven qualities of the orchestra. The first of the two works was Gabrieh's Pian' e Forte for brass choir. The ensemble got off to a particularly asthmatic beginning. However, the 10 young instrumentalists did have a potentially pleasnat blend and should be encouraged to continue their efforts. This kind of music is indeed a rarity in our concert halls. The evening concluded with Strauss's Vienna Blood Waltz. I am afraid the circulation of the Vienna blood was too sluggist to convey the final touch of the true Viennese lilt. The Lethbridge Symphony Orchestra under Mr. Needham's direction is continuing to improve. However, orchestras are governed by economics as well as by aesthetics. Perhaps a little more local support could encourage their progress. Bands, dramatics Wednesday highlights Tot's show of enthusiasm counts more than polish How do 33 kindergarten-age children sit still long enough to learn a poem for competition? With gre-a-a-at difficulty. Actually, according to the two teachers who persuaded their students to learn the poem to compete in Monday's Kiwanis Music Festival, in the kindergarten and pre-school choral speech class, the task was fulfilled without any major problems. Pati Wigelsworth, who teaches the Winston Churchill Kindergarten, which came in first, and Maureen MacKenzie, from the Lethbridge Pre-School Services Project, both said the children were very enthusiastic and learned the short poem, Who's In, by Elizabeth Fleming, very Vulcan County records surplus of VULCAN (Staff) The County of Vulcan recorded a surplus of in its 1973 operations.

Once they got to the Paramount Theatre, where the competition was held, there were problems in getting them to stand still and with their fascination for the moveable theatre seats. Adjudicator Walter Kaaza, obviously pleased with both performances, said although teachers must watch the rhythmic patterns and "s" sound for young children, the important point at this age is the feeling of doing something together, and having fun doing it. He said he wishes students from Grade 4 and up could keep the same energy and enthusiasm displayed by younger children. After the performances, he spent several minutes talking to the children. "One of the wonderful things about he said, "is that the children have the chance to dp reading together." At this point one attentive young man loudly corrected him with the remark, "I can't read at all." Both teachers said they felt the effort required for the performances was worthwhile, giving the children the experience of saying words clearly together in front of an audience of parents. Concert bands and dramatics will be highlighted during Wednesday performances at the Lethbridge and District Kiwanis Music Festival. Choral groups and folk singing will also play a major role in the festival agenda, says Marge McLaughlin, festival secretary.

Pianist captures mood of composer Capturing the mood of a composer is the key to artistic piano playing. Nancy Watson did just that at the 44th Annual Kiwanis Music Festival Monday. Although she was the only competitor in the Canadian Composers Junior category, Nancy received much praise from the adjudicator for "artistically capturing the mood of nicely matched pieces." She was awarded an 86, one of the high marks of the day. Nancy played Deaux Valses by Couture. Nancy, who will soon be taking her Western Board of Music Grade 9 exam, enjoys contemporary music, such as the festival number by Couture. "I enjoy festivals because I can get a professional opinion of my playing. I like to hear what someone else has to say even though it kind of makes me uncomfortable." said Nancy. The adjudications do help her, though, to patch up certain pieces for exams. Nancy was pleased with the mark she received, but felt it might have been more accurate if there had been more competitors in the category. She plays all kinds of music but prefers contemporary and hardly ever plays popular. Some of her favorite composers are Couture, Hadyn, Bach and Beethoven. Nancy, who lives at 2401 22nd Ave. S., is a Grade 10 student at LCI. She hopes to complete all the examinations offered by the Western Board of Music so she may eventually have her own music pupils.
