Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta -Wednnday, September 29, 1971 _ THE LETKBR1DGE HERALD 43 HARNESSING RIVER Water rushes through the spillway at Manitoba's Hydro' generating dam at Gillam, a massive million project to harness the Nelson River in the province's remote northeast. Ice cream industry looks for sales boom By ART JOHNSON TORONTO (CF) Ice cream is developing a following among adults and the industry looks lor a sales boom. "There's no stigma lo lee cream says Ray Wood, an administrative assistant B'illi the Ontario's Dairy Council- Twenty years ago, he says, few adults would be seen eating an ice cream cone. But now times have changed so much, "we're on the verge ol a sales boom in ice cream cones." Mr. Wood says a strong mar- ket for ice cream has developed in the last couple of years in the United Stales and the move jiovv has spread to Canada. At least two U.S. ice cream chains are setting up shop here, in anticipation of the expanding market, he says. Len Ellison, vice president, marketing, for Big Scoop Sun- dae Palaces Ltd., says ice cream is gaining appeal be- cause people are "looking back to the good old days. "Older people are returning to it. They remember it from their younger days and they know they are going to like it." ENTER ONTARIO Big Scoop, established in Bri- tish Columbia four years ago, now Is expanding into Ontario with its franchise chain. Big Scoop, like many other ice cream specialty shops, car- ries about two dozen flavors. Offbeat flavors and colors ap- peal to ymmg children, Mr. El- lison says, but people over 20 "are not likely to try the far-out flavors." William Hammond, general sales manager for Devon Ice Cream Ltd. of Toronto, says bulk ice cream "is really com- ing back on the market." Bulk ice cream, packaged in large containers, is sold to out- lets lo serve as ice cream cones and sundaes. BULK SALES CROW Mr. Hammond says bulk ice cream sales have been increas- ing for two years. Harold Smith, sales manager for Imperial Cone Co. says receptacles for ice selling well this year. Part of the increase is due to the number of outlets now sell- ing ice cream in shopping centres, he says. A few years ago a large shop- ping centre had only one outlet selling ice cream. Now each shopping centre has at least two or three "and you see a lot more people walking around eating ice cream conea." One of the big changes In the business is a switch to hard ice cream from the soft product. "Hard ice cream has more in it. You get more for your money." Staid Royal York programs bow to tastes of times TORONTO (CP) The Royal York Hotel's traditional big- name entertainment appears to be bowing to the tastes of the girls and topless dancers. Starting Nov. 1, the hitherto staid and decorous Imperial Room will have a show staged by Tibor Rudas, featuring an English comedian, i juggler and an adagio team in addition lo the girls. "This does not mean we're abandoning the star policy alto- says hotel publicist Grace Carter, "But we're giving this a try." With the change, bandleader Moxie Whitney, who built the star policy, is resigning after 22 years although he will retain a small connection with the hotel as booking agent. LOST TIME TORONTO (CP) Toronto Transit Commission buses and street cars lost a total of 370 hours of travel time this past a i n 1 y because of traffic tie-ups caused by road construction. J. H. Kearns, commission manager, reported that traffic congestion ac- counted for 57 per cent of the 370 hours of vehicle time lost during June, July and August this year.
