Remember Eaton's Time-Honoured Guarantee "GOODS SATISFACTORY OR MONEY Instant food industry booming By JEAN HEWITT New York Times Service NEW YORK The instant food industry is enjoying a windfall these days from its latest innovation. The innovation: adding a pound of real ground beef to such mixes as Hamburger Helper. The windfall: after dinner, there's only one pan to wash. The quick dinner about 25 minutes on the stove is all that's needed doesn't add up to such a plus in other areas, however. The quick dinner isn't significantly less jarring on the pocketbook than its homemade equivalent (which, !t turns out, can be prepared without taking much As for the taste, a test showed that, like the products, it's at best a mixed bag. Hamburger Helper there are 13 flavors is one of an assortment of prepared convenience dinner mixes that attempt to expand "real" food into an entire meal rather than replace it. The concept is simple: you provide the base (hamburger meat, a can of we provide the meal The idea -the Herald- Family has caught on so that there are now at least four major companies producing two dozen varieties of such dinner mixes as hamburger stew and creamy rice and tuna. What do they look like? Most of the prepared, convenience dinner mixes have a stew-like, or sloppy- joe, consistency, with a seasoned sauce holding together the meat of tuna, pasta, rice or potato and sometimes extra vegetables. Kraft foods offers a "library" of six Chef's Surprise Dinner mixes packaged to look like books and labelled volumes 1 through 6. This includes a homespun supper with canned vegetables, spaghetti and sauce mix in the package to add to a pound of browned hamburger, and a Colonial Supper mix that calls for the addition of ham. Hunt-Wesson Foods Markets Skillet Stroganoff and Skillet Lasagna mixes which include a can of sauce, noodles and seasonings. Creamette of Minneapolis has several pasta and sauce, all- dry dinner mixes. Are they tasty? That depends on who is asked. People who are used to eating made from scratch casseroles, sauces and the like are repelled by the odor of hydrolyzed (chemically broken down) plant protein, dried and canned vegetables and some of the seasonings The odor is strongest when the ingredients hit the water but persists in the finished dinner. Besides the odor, many users report they find the taste flat, synthetic and often objectionable Picking out individual ingredients by taste alone was found to be difficult. In a blindfold test, sliced and diced potatoes as well as dried and canned vegetables were recognizable by texture and sometimes smell, but not taste. The flavor of the sauce tended to mask everything. When Skillet Stroganoff and Skillet Lasagna dinners were compared with Hamburger Helper's lasagna and potato strofcduoff dinners, the skillet versions were found to have a better flavor. This was attributed to the canned sauces that are a part of those mixes. Mix prices average 69 cents, with a range of from 59 to 89 cents The biggest investment in the meat dinners whether those made from scratch or from a mix is the pound of ground beef, which sells for between 99 cents and 1.39 depending on the grade A 6 and one-half to 7 ounce can of tuna retails for about 65 cents Some people praise the dry dinner mixes for their time and energy saving features. THE BETTER HALF By Barnes "I think your mother and I are growing closer she got my name right twice tonight." Co-op offers support' to needy people EDMONTON (CP) The Boyle Street Co-op operates out of a one-time hotel in a slum, offering a kind of family support to the drunks, the unemployed, the old and the other groups in society who find they can't handle the world around them. The co-op's director, Alice Hanson, looks as if she should real- ly be building a career or playing golf instead of working in the midst of the rougher side of life. But after talking with her one comes away with a sense of un- derlying toughness and sympathy not normally found on a golf course "It's the first time in my life I have ever had a job that I quite often think about in my spare time at home because there's always something you are trying to work said the 47- year-old mother of two grown children. The co-op offers plenty of challenge to work through. It offers help in the areas of legal aid, housing, medical at- tention, employment, recreation, alcoholic rehabilitation, com- munity outreach to put people in touch with the services they need and companionship to the old and lonely who make up a large segment of the area's population. But more than a collection of social services under one roof supported by the federal government, the co-op offers support to those who want to change their life-style but can't do it except through long-term readjustment. "The co-op provides those things a family does for most people. You get out on the street and you don't have a family to support you through the transition. "We have to be willing to go through that transition with a person, to support him when he falls back, to have expectations but not to put him down too much." The co-op has a full-time staff of seven, some of them area people, plus specialists from agencies operating under its roof who not only offer help in their own fields but try to look at the whole problem and refer their clients to other specialists. Mrs. Hanson said the people of the area have their own goals, not the middle-class ones of material achievement but goals of self-esteem and ability to cope with day-to-day living. "They're very kind, helping people. They want friends. Friends are terribly important. They are generally very kind to each other. They'll give each other their last dollar. "Mind you, there are some of them who roll each other too." They can't cope with a normal business environment and need activities that will make them feel like participants in society, she said. The psychology graduate, who has been doing volunteer work for years, couldn't articulate her own motives clearly. "You have to be really sure of who you are and what you stand for before you can work in an area like this. You can't get too sympatiietic. You really have to keep your own feeling of what you stand for and who you are and still understand why these people are who they are." On one level, she said, the need is simply for activity to give people a feeling they are participating. The co-op opened a recreation centre and the project snowballed. The people of the area got pleasure from activities they con- sidered respectable. The trick was to get them doing something to let them build up a little stock of self-respect. The co-op really needs another office because while it can handle the drunks and transients from its present quarters, other kinds of seasonal workers, pen- sioners and poor being lumped in with "street people." But before any expansion, Mrs. Hanson has to persuade the city and the province to bankroll the co-op's budget. The federal department of national health and welfare launch- ed the project experimentally three years ago and will pull out in November. Mrs. Hanson said she thinks chances are good that the money will be found. Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: You printed a column recently from a lady lawyer who com- pared the morals of lawyers with those of physicians It was not a theoretical argument. No doctor had ever made a pass at her, she said, but the lawyer who handled her divorce case proposition- ed her and she agreed right in his office on his leather couch. You were skeptical, but that lady was right. At least 50 per cent of the divorced women of my acquaintance (including my wife) have had pitches from their lawyers ranging from verbal offers to near rape. You said poor judgment, weak character, etc. don't belong exclusively to any one profession I agree. But how about a test? Why don't you ask your readers to drop a postcard with one word on it. The question: "From which profession did you receive the most brazen pitch''" But let's not limit it to doctors and lawyers. The third category should be clergymen. I'll bet lawyers will come in first, clergymen second, and doc- tors a poor third. Cynical For A Reason Dear Cynic: You have a weird circle of acquaintances, but I accept your challenge Please, women no letters with details. Just a one-word postcard naming the profession. I'll report the results after we do a ten-day count. Dear Ann Landers: I'd like to respond to the and divorcees who say the) can't find a decent man. I'm sure the complaining females have met several very nice men, but no man stayed around long for the following reasons. As a man who has been divorced for six years and taken out dozens of women, I speak from experience. Here is what I've been running into: Every divorced girl tells me what a rat her ex-husband was. How he drank, gambled, ignored her, slept around and lied like a Persian rug Not one of the divorced women I took out ever mentioned the possibility that perhaps there was something "wrong with HER. The widow is worse She wants to have you over to dinner right away Then out comes the family album with the endless monologue on how wonderful her "Albert" was What a beautiful person, without a single human flaw A saint So generous, so con- siderate. And of course there are photographs of him all over the place. Who cares? The answer is NOBODY, and the sooner these divorcees and widows get this through their heads, the better their chances will be for a second marriage. Also Single And Looking Dear Single: You've had a run of bum luck, mister. There are plenty of divorcees and widows around who don't fit your description. I hope vou find one soon.
