the lentils thoroughly.  In a 2 1/2-quart saucepan bring 6 cups of water to a
boil.
 Add the lentils, bacon, leek or green onion, carrot and celery.  Simmer,
partially covered, for 30 to 40 minutes.  Meanwhile in a frypan, saute chopped
onion in vegetable oil until soft.  Sprinkle flour over onion, and stir.  Lower
heat, stir constantly, and cook until the flour turns a light brown.  DO NOT burn
flour.	Stir in 1/2 cup of hot lentil soup into the browned flour; beat with a
wire whisk until well-blended.	Beat in vinegar.  Add contents of frypan to
lentil pan and stir together.  Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until lentils
are soft.  Add the frankfurters and catsup.  Cook to heat frankfurters through.
Season with salt and pepper and serve hot.
