'Inside story1 on Grandma's apple pie KITCHENER, Ont. (CP) A federal health official gave the "inside story" Thursday: The contents of Grandma's apple pie were dangerous, if not poisonous, and today's hot dogs don't measure up to tlmsc of the past. Dr. Alexander Morrison, as- sistant deputy minister of the federal health protection branch, said Grandma's pie often was made with wormy apples, rancid lard and wee- vil-infested flour. Dr. Morrison told the an- nual town and country dinner, sponsored by the Kitchener Chamber of Commerce and the Waterloo County Federa- tion of Agriculture, that food today is much more sanitary. In an interview later, he- said the hot dog today con- tains 10 per cent protein, com- pared with 14 per cent in 1964. His department is consider- ing setting a minimum protein level for frankfurters, lie said and up INCOME TAX RETURNS prepared by computer Set up especially for1 the typical Canadian family, Beneficial's Income Tax Service is fully computerized.
