Door-To-Door Wheat Sales Get Overwhelming Response By GORDON GRANT EDMONTON (CP) Dick Johnson, a bus driver, decided that to give-a small hand to ridding Canada of her wheat problem be would sen wheat door-lo-door. At first be thought be would sell a few 10-pound bags and give away recipes to help housewives use up their sup- pBw., However, the response to his plan has been "over- and he's decided BOW to open a restaurant which will, offer ordy wheat dishes on the menu. He's already rented premises for bis restaurant and for use as a storehouse. "The response of house- wives was so good when I was selling wheat door-to-door at H.50 tor 10 pounds that I decided to open the restaurant and hire women to sell for Mr. Johnson said in an interview. "After bearing of my sell- ing, people from all over Can- ada wrote to me asking for wheat. A man from Kitch- ener, Oiit., sent me a letter with a bill for a sack of wheat and a man from Quebec wrote to commend my efforts. "When housewives realize that they can make breakfast for about two cents a serving, they buy wheat." He buys No. 2 Northern from the AKerta Wheat Pool, has it washed and it's ready for the market. In his restaurant he will sen frozen pre-cooked wheat along with meals. He will abo give away reaper. WORLD OF SHOES Included m the menu win cooked wheat, wheat por- ridge, wheat sandwich spread, w h e at stew, wheat soup, wbeatburgers, wheat meat loaf and wheat pudding. "Six buses pass the restaur- ant door, so I should get some business.If I don't it meant I'm about in the at least." What's a wheatburger? Mr. Johnson's recipe gives these directions: Blend 1 cup of pre-cooked wheat, 1 pound of hamburger, 1 tablespoon of minced onion, 1 egg. and pepper to taste. Form irfo patties and fry as ordinary hamburger. wheat gives it great flavor. We bad a friend over for supper who said mat after tiring on the farm as a chid she never wanted to eat wheat again. I made the meat loaf and pudding and she sad it was delicious. "The prices win be tow in tiie restaurant and we'll step up the teOng. AdrMoniBy, a local neaKb food (tare owner bat decided to gen wheat for me. "Im' hoping that wheat win catch on. Strangely, nobody seems to think I'm a screw- baa Even the guyi I work with have been asking for of wheat and Specials Every Saturday! PERMS ALL HAIRCUTS THERESA BEAUTY SALON 740 4th Avt. S. Pott 32t-6424 inability to communicate which is commonly known as the generation gap 'was never so apparent as in the construction of a modem two- wheeled bicycle. Its interesting to ponder the build of the individual who inspired the creation of the banana seat. Obviously that individual carried his or her own padding but not surely with any thought of contour. Handlebars are another moot point. Tailors had best be warned that the old 33, 3-inch 'sleeve U passe. Our young will have an arm's' length of 10 inches or perhaps even a 40-inch stretch. At least that's the way tbe new handlebars are built, straight up or straight down. While nutritionists would tell us the height of the average Canadian is getting taller, tbe size of the average bicycle is getting smaller.. Tires are getting smaller too, which means more revolutions per -minute to get where you're going.. Then there's the joker who has one small wheel and one large wheel, the sole point of which is to make like Jean-Claude Killy on the curbs. Bicycles come equipped with gear shift, odometer, (to.measure 'mileage) speedometer (to measure speed.) and a kickstand which if you don't put in its proper place will drop down and tumble you into the gravel the city hasn't gotten around to cleaning up yet. A bicycle is no longer a mode of transportation, it's a status symbol. Boys spend hours tinkering with chain guards, tires, wheels, and handlebars. A little kit on the back holds all the necessary tools, theoretically. In actuality it holds two work- books, one textbook, one ruler, .one eraser (half eaten) an apple (also half-eaten) a nearly completed set of "pictures, a pair of mittens (which Mom insisted upon but both parties knew wouldn't be used) and an elastic band (for multiple purposes, which are known only to boys) and men have the nerve to talk about women's purses. Between the small size, the flat and very hard seat, the up-down handlebars, bicycles are safe from adults at least. Unfortunately theyr e just as My to swipe from school or swimming pool. Seriously though, bike-riding has fallen by the wayside, the unmotorized kind at least. It's too bad. The 'advantages of bicycling are even for adults. The cost of the tire that flattens %on some broken glass is negligible compared with damages to a car tire which scrunches over a bottle left on'a parking lot. The' (and'.rain) is in your face but your hings get-a vacuuming instead of filtering in the smoke from an enclosed car. Bike-riders are more relaxed than your average motorist. You don't have to compete with the traffic You1 do your thing, and. they do theirs. rYou actually have time to see the world you're in. The grass turning green. The people on the street, and if you're- spinning around the neighbor- hood, you can smell the lilacs. You might get a little pup nipping at your heels but you won't worry about hearing that awful bump under your front tire. And if a little child runs into the street from behind that parked car, you may both end up with a few bruises, but you'll miss the horror of worse injury. Cars are a necessity speed, convenience and other trivialites. But instead of a Sunday drive, take a Sunday ride around the block. Watch the kids skip. Watch the slap shot into goal by the neighbor- hood gang. Borrow a kids' bike, bear up with the hard seat, and the funny handlebars. Let the neighbors wonder. Have fun.
