Page 2-THE HERALD, Provo, Utah, April 7, 1975 FIRST COMERS start to load different types of containers with 10 pounds of free potatoes given away by Norton's Market in Provo this morning. A long line was waiting at the door at 9 a.m. The potatoes were given away by the Nortons Older C/fizens, Wives Turn Ouf rather than having them destroyed because Ron Norton Sr. believes to burn them would be a waste. "People need the work," he said. HOUSEWIVES, with children In tow, were loading their boxes and bags with 10 pounds of free potatoes at Norton's Market In Provo today. A line stretched from the produce department out Into the street as hundreds took advantage of the free offer.

Now You Know By United Press International Most of the rain in the world is melted snow. By RON BARKER There'll be lots of potatoes in the oven tonight in Provo and surrounding communities. This morning, Norton's Market, at 1405 N. State, Provo, opened its doors to hundreds of people waiting to get 10 pounds of free potatoes. Observers noted the crowd was orderly, consisting mainly of older citizens and young mothers with babies, many of them wives of students. In the first few minutes, about 3,000 pounds was given away, according to Ron Norton Sr., but that was only a small dent in the more than 22 tons of potatoes which were available. Those who came to get the potatoes, mostly women, used every imaginable form of carrying device. Some brought pails, others used laundry baskets, sacks, boxes and trash disposal bags. Most stayed in the line which stretched from the front door past the check-out counters, down one of the aisles and into the produce department. A special T-shaped table had been set up which was stacked high with Idaho potatoes, now finding some useful purpose. Only weeks ago, potatoes from Idaho were about to be destroyed in protest over the low price farmers were able to get for their product. Ron Norton Sr. thought it would be a good idea to buy a load of potatoes and give them away through his son's store rather than let them be destroyed, going to waste when many are either hungry or having a hard time with their food budget. Those who came to get the potatoes agreed with Mr. Norton, and thought his gesture was a fine one. "I think its great," remarked one housewife. "We use potatoes everyday." A elderly woman thought Mr. Norton might be a little too generous, however. "I think they ought to give 10 pounds to those who buy something, so it would be an incentive," she suggested. Mr. Norton, not interested in making any profit off the potatoes, announced several times over a public address system that the potatoes were free without any purchase, and that amounts over 10 pounds could be bought for four cents a pound. One man took a 100-pound sack and paid for the 90 pounds over the limit. Mr. Norton, who observed the scene, gave him a $1 rebate on the spot. Another woman waiting in line said she thought the give-away was a terrific idea. "It certainly is better than having it go to waste. I think it is very charitable, and the store ought to be commended," she remarked. A man who remembered other food problems commented, "I think it's terrific. Back in 1943 and 1944 there were too many potatoes, and they were just destroyed," he said. This approach is much better, he added. "I'm from Idaho, and I think its great," another woman said. "It's sure a lot better than burning them." Hearing on Budget Revisions Heads Orem Council Agenda THESE GIRLS REIGNED over Miss Indian BYU events over the weekend.
