Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 6, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THE LETHHIDCE HERALD October John Lohuis Construction Shows Slate Veneer California Slate, Stucco Give Smart Look Here Come to-3309 Bsauvais Place when you see the parade of homes. John Lohuis Construc- tion is doing things in 1970 and this home is positive proof. It looks modest but it's grand. The exterior is warm and friendly with California slate and stucco. There's a big car- port. The planter, veneered with slate, is neatly located. The exterior lias a clarity and neatness that are the watchwords of good design. Inside you'll find more space than you thought possible by viewing such a deceptive ex- terior. 1 I t Trie living room is spacious. It's a definite plus for this home. The dining area is raised. Look out the window and you'll see children playing in Uie distance on a school ground. The ceiling in the living room. rises to the ridge and spatter white sparkles its star- ry message of clean interior design. Note the kitchen cupboards. Craftsmen built them. See how the work is neatly put together with panels slanting to the ceil- ing. Thafs tricky and it looks very, very smart. It's a U-shaped kitchen and it features some of the loveliest wood in the entire lineup of 1970 homes in this wonderful parade. The bathroom is neat and compact, handy to three rooms although the master bedroom has its own half bath. John Lohuis Construction has definitely shown how a master builder puts a home together these days. It's the centre home on the northeast side of Beauvais Place crescent. And it packs a lot livealrility into today's design. That California slate bids you a warm welcome! Insulation Cuts Pollution Says Professor HORNBY, Ont. (CP) A University of Toronto professor says Metropolitan Toronto spent in 1967 to turn city lights on earlier after smog blocked out the sun late in the day. David Scott, a member of the anti-pollution group, Pollution Probe, told a local Liberal as- sociation air pollution could be combatted if bouses were bet- ter insulated. Most homes in Canada, said Prof. Scott, are built with two inches of insulation in the roof and none in the walls. "With four inches in the roof, and two in the he said, "the home owner could cut his .fuel bill by half." Such con- struction, costing would also cut pollution from burn- ing fuel. Blind Mian Masters Carpentry JOHNSBURG, HI. "I guess I am just a stubborn Dutch- man and wouldn't give was the answer Clarence J. Smith gave when asked he mastered carpentry after los- ing the sight of both eyes. Smith, a man in bis middle fifties, is a fine physical specimen. He is muscular and obviously has worked hard, and taken good care of himself over the years, but is com- pletely sightless. He was born on a farm and as a young man was no stranger to hard work. He still found plenty of time for sports. In high school he played baseball, basketball and was active in other sports. The day after Christmas 1934 Smith was using a ham- mer and as he struck an ob- ject a piece of steel broke from the head of the tool and pierced his left eye. The eye was destroyed by the accident and the infection that resulted spread to bis right eye and soon robbed him of the sight of that eye, too. A few weeks later, by Easter 1935, be was totally blind. He said that jf the same thing happened today with penicillin and other antibiotics, the sight of his right eye could have been saved. He has undergone more than 10 opera- tions since his accident in 1934. Smith is an extremely deter- mined man and even after be- ing sightless for more than 35 years he. still holds out hope to see again. The lens of his right eye was removed in a cataract operation. The cornea is so deeply clouded it will not allow an to pass through to the back of the eye but, according to Smith, the optic nerve is still intact. His hope for sight again lies in an artificial plastic nea that is developed. One day two years, after his accident be was fooling around with some old crating wood and expressed a desire to learn how to build things. With the encouragement of his father his dogged determina- tion, he taught himself to build fine furniture from wood. TIES There's nothing quite the equal of brick for beauty and strength combined.
