Program offers healthy food

(Continuedfrom Page 1)
Which, of course, introduces quite
another mystery. Why should doc-
tors - University Hospital doctors
in particular- be taught healthful
eating? Shouldn't they be teaching
"It's just a reminder," Langkabel
explained. "They know how to eat
healthy, but we just want to increase
awareness so employees can reduce
the risk of heart disease, cancer, and
obesity - diseases affected by diet."
The program, developed by
hospital nutritionists, will feature
educational displays outside the
cafeteria and the addition of "a greater
variety of healthy foods inside...to
encourage healthy nutrition up until
and at the point of food selection,"
she said.
"It's not like the cafeteria is un-
healthy now," Langkabel said. "We
have a variety of foods, but not ev-
erybody knows about them."
With HEP, visitors to the cafete-
ria can now enjoy low-calorie salad
dressings, a salad bar, low-choles-
terol cheese, and Dole Whip (an ice
cream substitute made from powder)
rather than the "deep-fried, more fat-
tening alternatives," she said.
No mystery there. Take educated
University Hospital doctors, add a
fresh fruit bowl and some low-fat
turkey, and what'll you get? A rack

full of untouched cold cheeseburgers?
Not yet. Yesterday, the second
day of HEP, food service worker Lee
Hammond said "although the doctors
are asking questions, they're eating
the same old things... french fries,
fried fish, and burgers."
"They're buying more salads, but
even more french fries than ever,"
noted cafeteria cashier Sandy Grow.
The plot gets thicker... and
greasier. "They're frankly not satis-
fled with the food here," Grow added,
"but what do you expect? Even in
the hospital, a cafeteria is a cafete-
Langkabel said progress might be
slow and that it will take up to two
years to judge the program's effec-
tiveness. "It is a free country. We
can't force people to eat healthy."
Even doctors. Even at University
Hospital, where yesterday cafeteria

cook Doug Barden kept the burgers
flipping as quickly as always. "Id
probably lose my job if this health
stuff caught on," he said.
A plastic surgeon with a tray of
french fries didn't think it would.
"There's no good healthy food. It s
all frozen and tasteless."
But some physicians did enjoy
the selections. Said one pathologist,
"I see what happens to people who
eat greasy food all their lives. I'm
having a salad."
Langkabel doesn't think much
convincing will be necessary.
"People really do want to do the
right things for their bodies," she
But some people would rather eat
french fries.
Especially at University Hospital.

Ford dies after long hospitalization

president. Iacocca took the idea to
Chrysler and made it into a huge
Divorced twice and married three
times, Ford lived a full and colorful
life, but friends said he sometimes
tired of the fame that accompanied
his name. Although generally polite
and gracious, he was outspoken and
sometimes even cruel, as when he
called subordinate Walter Murphy at
2 a.m. on the morning after he fired
e Ford's son, Edsel Ford II, cried
Syesterday as he told reporters gath-
ered at his father's childhood Grosse
Pointe estate that he wanted to thank

doctors who labored to save the auto
industry magnate.
"My father was a great industrial
leader, a respected statesman, and a
dedicated supporter of civic and hu-
manitarian causes. But he also was a
loving husband, father and grandfa-
ther," said Edsel Ford, who is gener-
al sales manager for Ford's Lincoln
Mercury division.
Edsel Ford said details of his fa-
ther's burial would remain private,
but a memorial service for friends
will be held in about two weeks.
Iacocca put aside the past in laud-
ing Ford in a statement:
"Our industry, and all of Ameri-
can business, has lost a true leader.
His vision and hard work trans-

formed Ford into a great company,
but he will be remembered as well
for his many civic contributions.
"Henry Ford and I were friends
and colleagues for a lot longer than
we were adversaries, and my sympa-
thy goes to his family and friends,"
Iacocca said.
