ALLtDlIIONa Scientists' menu Cookies and potato chips for school lunch in the future United Press International WASHINGTON - A school lunch with cookies and potato chips substituting for spinach and carrots?" Pood scientists disclosed last week they are working on just such a menu. They are being encouraged by the Department of Agriculture, which traditionally has equated nutrition with fresh foods. The scientists, attending the 3rd International Congress of Food Science and Technology, said the school lunch of the future may consist of nutritionally' fortified versions of foods that children like. "Spinach for school lunch sounds good," said Dr. G. Robert Dimarco, chairman, department of food science, Rutgers University, New- Brunswick, N.J. "But you should see all the green in the garbage can at the end of the line." Dimarco. appearing with six food industry scientists at a news conference, said the fortified foods will be more nutritious. "We assumed for years that nature's foods were best for us — the God-given foods," he said. "Science has shown us this is a fallacy." A school lunch, he said "should be based on nutrition not the old idea of something red, something green, something yellow and a glass of milk." An Agriculture Department spokesman confirmed that the department is working with Dimarco and other scientists on fortified foods. The fortified foods are not just for school .lunch. Leading scientists for General Foods Corp., the Pillsbury Co. and Borden, Inc., said they already are fortifying such processed staples as cake mixes and KooI-Aid. Dr. Howard Bauman, Pillsbury's vice president for science and technology, said Pillsbury recently test marketed flour fortified with lysine, an essential protein component, at 10 groceries in the Chicago ghetto. Borden's is test marketing iron-fortified milk and working in the laboratory on fortified potato and. corn chips, Dr. Harley Howard, technical director, said. Dr. Richard L. Hall, vice president for research and development, McCormick & Co., said his company has started fortifying instant potato mix sold to restaurants. Dimarco said nutrition can be built into cookies and cakes, too. He and the industry representatives agreed that with mass production the nutrient additives would cost little — usually less than a penny for each box, bag or carton. But the scientists said the government must set nutritional ground rules banning overfortified "super foods." Too much Vitamin D can kill you, for example, and overdoses of other nutrients can be harmful, they said. They said the rules must be guided by the eating habits of most Americans, and they cautioned against specially fortified foods for poor people. "Every survey has shown that poor people want to eat the same food as everyone else," Bauman said. "They don't want a food made specially for them." The concept of government guidance on food nutritional content is as new to the Agriculture Department as it is to industry, the scientists said. Evan F. Binkerd, Armour and Co.'s director of food research, said government grades for meats are based on taste and tenderness criteria, not nutrition. When the Agriculture Department ruled last year that hot dogs must have no more than 30 per cent fat content, Binkerd said, "it was one of the first injections of a nutritional concern" since the department began inspecting meats more than 50 years ago. Nor is the family doctor a seer on the subject, the scientists said. On the average, Hall said, a medical student gets a grant total of one hour in nutritional training. "The average doctor knows less about nutrition than the average housewife," Bauman said. City council member Mrs. Warren (Billie) Gentry with an 'egg,"The Son of Godzilla,' and at tea table, Mmes. Arlie Rowan and Rlcharf' Saba""" "^ The Son of Godzilla - Scottsdale housewife's By JEANNE TRO WILLIAMS SCOTTSDALE - Silver glittered from tea tables, candles shimmered in the spacious Kiva room of Scottsdale's City Hall, piano music drifted from the balcony — and it was all about garbage. Garbage is not ordinarily a festive matter. Check with any protesting male who lugs it to the alley. But Scottsdale, with this city's usual elan, thought a new concept of refuse removal was a ripe reason for celebrating. Mayor B. L. Tims sent invitations to 251 women, known to care about Scottsdale, to meet "The Son of Godzilla," called by City Manager Bill Donaldson "the housewife's best friend." "Son" is a mechanical monster, a big truck with a grasping arm, who can snuffle up refuse faster and cheaper than the old pitch and - toss hand methods. After everyone was there and had drunk frothy lime punch and coffee, sampled good cookies and candies, Mayor Tims assured taxpayers that "The piano player (Dick Bailey) is NOT here all the time," particularly at meetings of the seven - member city council. Garbage collection has never been a mundane matter in Scottsdale, Tims said. "We've had the radio - controlled Refuse Wranglers, who operate trains of wheeled collection bins. Bins are the 'calves,' trucks are the 'cows,' and the supervisors, who drive pickup trucks, are called 'bulls.' "People listening to our wave length have been startled to hear a message such as this. 'Will cow two pick up calf four and rendezvous with bull one.' " Tims paid tribute to Marc Straiger, public works director, who labored mightily to bring forth the Son of Godzilla. "The idea is mechanized collection," said Straiger. "We have large, strong po- lyethelyne containers, reinforced with chrome, which go in alleys. They serve four families, and with the city providing containers, twice a - week pickup service costs $1 a month, compared to $1.50 for the old method."

Some of Scottsdale tract areas are alleyless, and those homes are provided with a one - family Godzilla egg on casters. It's kept in the garage or backyard, wheeled to the curb on collection days. "After experimentation, we found we could use four family barrels or one - family barrels, but not two - family barrels," Tims said. "It caused friction. If you have four families, no one can tell who the beer bottles belong to." City Councilman Mrs. Warren (Billie) Gentry narrated STORE I1OUHS ; in.>ci <.•(.£M Miiiidoy 8.30 to V P.M.

"Garbage collecting is not the most desirable occupation. T h e r e 's not a lot of chance for advancement, it lacks social prestige and it's unpleasant, difficult work. "With the son of Godzilla, the operator is sitting in an air - conditioned cab, handling sophisticated equipment, never touches garbage. He's,, a technician, with a good -fiK , ture." The city will save $3 yearly for each house serviced, which is enough to pay for fire protection, Tims said. Straiger said Scottsdale is -. being watched and questioned by cities all over the world. "Particularly the larger ones, which are in danger of being . swallowed up by refuse." "We've been testing the " system for a year," Straiger •'. said.
