Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, february 1, 1174 THE LITHMIDQE HERALD I1. Steak and kidney ragout is biggest seller Animal Gourmet caters to pets By STEVEN GREENHOUSE New York Times Service NEW YORK-Roast duckl- ing for dogs? Caviar for cats? They may sound fantastic, and they're not in the shops yet. But pet food makers are straining hard to capture what looks like a billion market this year. What about a restaurant serving shrimp cocktail and pate to pets? That's not fan- tasy. That's Animal Gourmet, which opened on New York's east side last summer to pamper the most epicurean pet palates. THE BETTER HALF Margot Teleki, owner of a brown poodle which once appeared in an alpo canned dog food commercial, takes her dog to Animal Gourmet for liver pate on crackers most weekdays at 5 p.m. "It's a place where my dog can meet other she explained, "and my dog much prefers their specialities to any canned foods. But it's too expensive for me to buy him all his food there." Gourmet or not, pet food is expensive and getting more so. Also, a lot more is being bought. By Barnes The average price of dog food rose to 25 cents a pound last year from 18 cents in 1970, while cat food rose to 39 cents from 30 cents. Pet food sales averaged last year for each of the 35 million dogs and 24 million cats in the country, up from less than in 1965. Inflation has hit pet foods like everything else. The Pet Food Institute observes that while dollar sales rose 51 per cent from 1969 to 1973, volume sales rose only 28 per cent. Although such figures deflate some boasts about the pet food boom, the growth about 12 per cent annually is un- deniable. Hard-sell advertising cam- paigns, with promises of better nutrition for pets, are turning American pet owners away from table scraps and leading them to commercially prepared pet foods. "It's all said Doris Wright, accompanying her friend to pick up her dog from a fashionable east side grooming establishment. "I could vomit when I think of it all. Just think of all the people starving in other countries. Who needs pets Last summer, the pet food industry was hard hit by the meat shortage and higher prices. Many companies re- quested and received permis- sion from the cost of living council to pass on price in- creases. Pet food sales eclipsed sales of coffee last year to become the largest selling category in the dry grocery market. Pet food sales are four times as great as baby food sales. Recently, William P. Stiritz, vice-president and director of the grocery products division of the Ralston Purina Company, the nation's leading pet food manufacturer, predicted that industry revenues would reach billion by 1977. In the first nine months of last year, the pet food in- dustry spent almost million on television adver- tising, according to the Televi- sion Advertising Bureau.

Dear Outspoken: You say you resent homosexuals and that the male fashion industry is crawling with them? Where's your proof? Have you ever met the designers of "those fruity as you put it? According to you, a man who wears a floral shirt, tight pants and a fur coat must be a homo. By the same reasoning, all women who wear low-heeled shoes, slacks and shirts must be lesbians. If a man wore today what was considered fashionable 300 years ago he would be con- sidered a fag beyond a ques- tion of a doubt. Remember George Washington and Alex- ander Hamilton in their white, powdered wigs, silk stockings, and lace handkerchiefs in their sleeves? Your resentment of homosexuals must lie deeper than not being able to find square clothing for your young sons. I'll bet you have a brother or an uncle who is a homosexual and it's HIM you hate. If you want your children to look like a bunch of under- takers, be my guest, but most people find the new styles ex- citing, youthful and alive. Well Dressed And Straight Dear W.D. and S.: Thanks for your letter. Now what am I going to do about the mail I'm sure to get from the un- dertakers? Dear Ann Landers: I am 16, a high school junior and worried about myself. I am such a perfectionist that it takes me twice ss long to do everything. Unless a paper is QUALITY DENTURE CURK EDDY DIETRICH MttMmte FumHun PHONE: perfect I won't hand it in. i have rewritten things four and five times because when I make an error I refuse to erase it. If I am unsure of the spell- ing of a word I look it up. After a while I find myself looking up words I am 99 per cent sure of. This can take hours. It wouldn't be so bad if I were a perfectionist only about myself but I also expect perfection from my friends. If someone says, "Between you and I can't stand it. I have to correct him right then and there. Anyone who says, "I' could care less gets told immediately that the expres- sion is "I COULDN'T care less." I got into quite an argu- ment over that one last week. I realize my inability to tolerate these little mistakes isn't normal. But how kooky is it really? Am I in trouble? Persnickety Petty Dear Penny: Everybody has some odd habits, no matter bow well concealed, but yours are bad because they rob you of valuable time that could be better spent The satisfaction you derive from these oddball demands on yourself are compensating for satisfactions you should be getting in other areas. Talk this over with your school guidance counsellor. You need help. Dear An Landers: My son has a paper route. He clears a week and spends every cent on comic books and can- dy. I have asked him to put at least part of his earnings in the bank and save toward college but he ignores me. What can I do about it? The boy's father and I are divorc- ed and I don't have a man around who can help. Ont> talked Motor Dear Mother: There's more involved here than a week. Your son is either oat of control or he soon will be. I urge yon to seek some out- side counseling for yourself. The problem lies with YOU.
