TAG! TWO BITTHBT1LLB (A'RK.T COTTRnm MONDAY, OCTOBER », IMS Does Your Coffee Taste Like Soup? - We// Maybe it Is By DICK KLEINER NEA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK — (NEA) — Picture this: You get up some morning, shower, get dressed and come down to breakfast. Lo and behold, pea soup.. At the moment, such a breakfast menu might throw you into a snit for the whole day. You might even growl at your wife or your dog. But, if certain people have their way, that picture is going to happen and you are going to like it. These certain people are VIPs — Very Important Peasoupmanufac- turers. Also clam chowder. And consomme. Because we are right in the beginning of what one big: soup outfit hopes will be the Breakfast Soup Era. It seems these tureen tycoons are looking around for new fields to conquer. With the true spirit of American industry, they are ever on the search for new markets. And their roving, eager eyes caught sight of the average American breakfast nook. There they found j such ghastly things as bacon and: eggs, cereal, waffles, even an occasional kipper — but no soup. And so a full-scale publicity and advertising campaign is under way. with the avowed aim of making YOU eat soup for breakfast. They have some pretty nice people on their side. There is, first, M Louis Diat, former master chef at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel here, who invented Vichyssoise. He says soup is | often served in France for break-i fast, even "the onion soup." Thatj may explain the political situation there. Then there was the late great pianist Paderewski, who is supposed to have regularly eaten a breakfast of sauerkraut soup smothered in sour cream. For one reason or another, he died. Tallulah Bankhead reportedly dotes on cold Vichyssoise for breakfast. The Finns eat thick potato soup in the mornings. The Danes have beer soup. The Scots like; breakfast barley broth. ' j . . . 1 So, yw see, there Is nothing i alarming about the prospect of: soup for breakfast. The Finns, f Danes and Scots would probably j shudder at the. Idea of bacon and : eggs. All depends on what you're j used to, I A normal, red-blooded American man. used to bacon and eggs, was | experimentally fed a big, hearty; bowl of clam chowder for break-; fast. His reaction: "Blyuh!" Trans- i lated loosely, that means: "Whassa ! matter, you stay up all night or i something?" j Of course, It may take a lew '. soup infusions for this subject, or i others, to acquire th* taste for | early morning soup. It is conceivable that B few soups from now, this man might confide to his friends: "You know. I just can't start the day until I have my soup." The soup people profess to believe thai soup is idea! breakfast food lor reasons other than increasing the gross sales. Ii is hot, they say, and who will dare to dispute them? It is also, they claim, filling and it certainly is. And they trot out dietitians who maintain a hot filling breakfast is what us bacon-and- eggers need. And it is quick and easy to make For those among us who find frying an egg arduous, soup may be the answer. They also suggest combining soup with other, more usual breakfast dishes. Try poaching en egg in consomme. Or sprinkling cereal bits over tomato soup. They say nothing about submerging a waffle in chicken soup. And so, just for the sake of fairness, some morning sit yourself down to a big breakfast of pea soup. Maybe next New Year. KtfauverSays Russia Realizes Cooperation Need SINGAPORE llPi—Sen. Kefnuver D-Tenn said here Saturday he be| lieve« Russia now realizes the im| porwuce of ihe cooperation and re' conciliation Wilh other nations. I Talking to reporters on his arrival Irom Calcutta after visiting Russia and other iron curtain countries, he added: "But I do not know how Ions this shift rrom the old policy will last, or whether it is genuine or not." He said the moderating Russian policy since Geneva was due to the (act that Russian people are demanding better living conditions and more consumer goods. Krtaurer said the Geneva spirit has not caugh: on in other countries behind the iron curtain. Wife's Neglect Saved the Car RIVERTON, Wyo. UP,—Jack.
