For more information contact the Community Summer Program, telephone By niC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer Lethbridge consumers appear ready to "wait and see" before making decision on purchasing policy following announcement that as of July 31 butter colored margarine can be sold in Alberta stores. A random telephone survey by The Herald indicated many people use butter only, many use margarine only while many find uses for both butter and margarine. In most instances, taste was the factor which determined which product was used. Health reasons (butter as an animal product versus margarine as a grain product) and economics (margarine is cheaper) were cited as other reasons for product choice. The color of margine didn't appear to be a major part of the buying habits ot the consumer just for color's sake. Some thought that although the the taste was okay, the color tended to "turn them especially when it came to "a nice big bowl of mashed potatoes." Joanne Ovcrn said she imagined she would buy some of the butter colored margarine just to try it. Whether it becomes a regular part of her purchases will depend solely upon price. If it sells for the same price, she will switch. She said she likes the taste of butter better, but say the margarine was belter for her health. Jolm Zuback said he never uses margarine so the new legislation won't effect him. He didn't worry about the higher price for butter. Alice Young doesn't plan any buying changes since she seldom uses margarine. Lattie Wyld always margarine. Any changes In her buying habits would be prompted by flavor and cost differences in the butter-colored product. Color is not the deciding factor for her. Kathy Enns doesn't like the yellow colored margarine. She uses white in her cooking and baking. If white Is unavailable, sha uses shortenings. For the table use, she uses butter and always will. Patricia Anderson will stick to whatever is the cheapest. Evelyn Blais uses bolh buller and margarine now and doesn't think the legislation change will make any differences in her purchases. Clara Doe will stay with butter because she doesn't like the taste of margarine. Jean Visser doesn't like the taste of margarine, claiming color has no bearing on her purchases. She will likely try a package of the new butter-colored margarine. Jean Tyrrel said butter Is not the favorite in her house. She said butter colored margarine would have an adverse affect since her family likes the yellow colored margarine. She thinks margarine has a uniform taste while butter seems to vary slightly in taste. Sheila Urban buys both margarine and butter because she likes butter and her husband likes margarine. Purchases ol the new product will be dependent upon see' Myrtle Quigley is a "butter as is her husband. Being transplanted farmers, the Quigleys always had fresh cream and homemade butter lo eat and this has carried through to retirement in the city. She said her husband won't allow margarine in the house. "I might be oa a diet but I'll still get enough butter to satisfy she said. Berendena Nyhot uses margarine all the time because she likes the taste and thinks it is good for her. She will continue to bring out the buller for company. -Elsie Szucs will continue buying Ihe type of margarine she is used to because she likes the taste of it. She uses no butter at all. Carol Rullcn very rarely uses margarine except for baking. Taste is the factor for butler use. Lea Fisher will always use butter for table use since her husband prefers it. She likes to use white margarine for bab ing but this is gelling hard lo gel. She will go lo Ihe butter-colored margarine for baking since she prefers the lighter color. Pauline Gordon uses margarine now because butter contains too much choleresterol to her way of thinking. She will use the butter-colored margarine in the future because it will look more Norbritlge Comm appoints Vern Sc Rev. Vern J.
