Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 3, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Renovations took hard work THE BETTER HALF By Barnes Dutch-style mills prized as recreational homes By DAVID R. FRANCIS Christian Science Monitor KOGEL. Germany When Kelmuth Schmoock lies in bed at his weekend house he often hears a spooky the sound of the entire top of his home rotating as the wind direction. On a blustery the bedroom may even sway a like a ship at sea. Mr. Schmoock's recreation home is a converted windmill. In recent well to do West Germans Mr. Schmoock have been snapping up old windmills in Schleswig the country's northernmost state. But there are not many mills left. Fifty years ago there were some 900 in this windy corner of grinding grain for bakers and housewives. Now there are at most of which only about 50 are being maintained. Even some of these lack their rotating or their expensive wind vanes. Only five or six of the working according to Nis of the Society for the Preservation of Wind and Water still use wind power to grind grain. Even these have auxiliary motors to assist when the wind slackens. Twelve of the mills here have been turned into 4 into and perhaps 25 into homes. Buying a mill is difficult. An from California recently combed Schleswig Holstein for one. He wanted to dismantle it and ship it but he had no success. Mr. owner of a manufacturing firm in nearby was more successful. Three years ago he read in a local newspaper that a mill was up for sale. The former Walter had tired of competing against modern bread with their efficient machines. When Mr. Schmoock offered deutsche marks at today's exchange in cash for the Dutch style Mr. Kofahl took it. That was only the first however. Remodeling cost some deutsche marks not to mention the work he and friends put in on it another deutsche marks Mr. Schmoock estimates. A maker of metal and plastic film by he spent a year of 12 hours a converting the mill into a home. The challenge of the task appealed to him. Mr. Schmoock started by tearing out tons of machinery conveyor storage and a wind powered elevator. He kept the basic the grinding main and gear mechanisms. he spent considerable money and effort putting the windmill apparatus into good shape. Thus when Mr. Schmoock arrives on a one of the first things he does is release the brake on the huge windmill. from he can see the large vanes begin to and inside he can watch a giant gear turn silently just above head level. The Kogeler mill was built in 1894. When Mr. Schmoock acquired the after decades of every wooden beam was white with every nook and cranny filled with it. Fat flour worms were hidden everywhere. There were so many that Mr. Schmoock had to put a canopy above the double bed in his second floor bedroom to prevent their falling onto the bed from the cracks above the ceiling beams. After an enormous cleaning and spraying effort nearly all the worms are gone. the first floor living dining' and modern kitchen contain dozens of including old farm such as a wooden oxen a horse's leather and a wooden harrow. A circular cast iron staircase was built to lead from the living room to the second where the grain once was ground. The stones are still in place.

We couldn't get our regular so we let her provide a 16-year-old substitute whom she described as When we arrived home at about the sitter and our 11-month-old child were asleep on the floor in front of the TV. When we woke her up she was embarrassed and apologetic. The baby was sleeping so soundly she didn't even wake when we put her in her own bed. My husband was very upset. He said it's dangerous for young children to spend several hours in front of the TV because of radiation. Is this Please check and let us know. Concerned Parents Dear It would have to be an old color TV and a person would have to sit very close to the set day after day in order to get enough radiation to be harmful. For several federal regulations have made it mandatory that all color TV manufacturers enclose the picture tube in a lead-type glass shield. TV might be harmful to a child's if he consistently sits too close to the and there can be some radiation from a defective so sitting as a regular should be discouraged. Dear Ann I am 24 and in my eighth month of pregnancy. My husband and I are having the same argument for the third and still we can't get together on a decision. It's over what our child should call us. Jud was raised in an informal household. He wants the child to call us by our first name. He claims it will remove certain artificial barriers and make the child feel closer to us. I am against it. I say a child should call his parents Mother and Dad as a matter of respect Am I right or is Dear I know parents who trained their children to call them Helen and Jack and the kids turned out just fine. I also know parents who insisted that their children call them Mother and Dad and the kids are plenty messed up. It's not what your children call but how they feel about you that matters. I prefer Mother and Dad because it helps put the relationship in the proper perspective. Children can have a great many but they can have only one Mother and Dad. Dear Ann Recently I read something that settled my feelings about Women's Lib once and for all. It seems that a group of Women's Libbers in your city got together informally to collect and define words which reflected sexist attitudes toward females in our society. The volume that emerged after several sessions was Intelligent Woman's Guide to Dirty Words. The Feminist English This dictionary contains about 450 definitions to heighten awareness among Women's I don't know what the dictionary did for but I became nauseated. According to one of the principal women are divided into two the and the It went on to say that for a woman to be considered a in our she cannot think of herself as a sexual person. A just by goes from lady to whore and it affects her thinking about herself. ambivalence drives her according to the dictionary. What is your opinion of this new Missouri Dear Show I haven't seen it so I can't say. But some women have more trouble with ambivalence than and that's where the problem lies.
