Page 12 - Wednesday, November 5, 1980. Glimpses of the Past By JACK HOWELL In this 100th year of photography that was reported on recently, it may be of interest to the readers to know that there were many variations of the industry used that were of interest such as photo im-. ages on shaving mugs (bet you didn't know that one). As early as the 1890's most barber supply companies were advertising these in their catalogs. The Theo. A. Kochs (of Chicago) barber catalog for 1896 prominently displayed a full-sized photographic type mug bearing the picture and. name of President Grover Cleveland. The Kocken Barber Supply Co. of St. Louis advertised "Your photo burnt into the surface of the mug to last forever," and other photos of buildings and machinery were used. Some had the name and date and were on both sides of the mug, such as a barber shop scene one on each side and the other side was the barber. Many were of historical significance such as photos of small towns or businesses, court houses, locomotives, Indians or historical buildings. The photographer took a photo of the furnished picture, reducing or enlarging it to the proper size. After developing the negative, he placed it against the chemically pre-sensitized mug and exposed it to strong light. Next the pic- ture or print was actually developed on the mug's surface with the use of additonal chemicals and then fired in a kiln. If a name was desired, it was added and re-fired. Today these mugs are highly collectible and are eagerly sought after by collectors. This was only one of the many uses fund for the field of photography which, of course, today is very ex- tensive, even to satellites that beam pictures to the earth from foreign lands and a new machine that can beam your favorite film to your TV screen so you can have a library of these films, for showing at your con- venience. Progress mar- ches on as mankind expands their brain power to greater accomplishments that would amaze the citizens of the 19th century. In October, 1880, when the "Reveille" was one year old, the following excerpts appeared in the paper: "The Garfield and Arthur Club has a handsome new banner which will soon be stretched across the street at Library Hall. (This was the site of the First Citrus Fairs.) "Dr. Coomhs is having a winery erected on .his place which will be 22x60 and a still will be 22x35. He expects to make 15,000 to 18,000 gallons of wine." "A visit to Hoadley warehouse revealed 40 to 50 teams unloading and every nook and cranny is overflowing. The entire produce of Lake County goes through his hands." "A Ukiah man has engaged a room at the warehouse for the storage of 1800 sacks of wheat." "Even if a boy is always whistling 'I Want To Be An Angel," it is just as well to keep the preserved pears on the top shelf and take away the ladder." "A great many men are cottage built; that is, they have but one story." "Poverty always robs a man of all spirit and vir- tue." "It is hard for an empty bag to'stand upright." "The new winery of the Optimus Wine and Brandy Co. just north of Healdsburg is almost completed." "The owner is Mr. Bermel and as a capacity of 20,000 gallons (not Mr. Bermel)." "Bloch and CO. son of Dry Creek Winery have offered $15 a ton for grapes." "The following teachers in the Cloverdale School District reported their attendance records for September 1880: Room 4, Eva Emory, 53 students; Room 3, Mary Miner, 35 students; Room 2, Olive Field, 39 students; Room 1, L. M. Shuck, 32 students, (Mr. Shuck was also the principal)." "Jr. R. Patten and Joe Foster killed a black bear east of Cloverdale last week.""The stage to The Great Geysers Springs leaves daily from Appleton and Kennedy's Livery Stable next to the U. S. Hotel. While waiting or arriving, one might avail one's self of the barber shop and baths at the hotel, says the owner Mr. H. F. Gerkhardt. Such was the life in the far west in those early days. HISTORICAL SOCIETY NEWS At our October meeting we welcomed new members Tom and Judy Hayworth who recently purchased the Dr. Sayre home on 3rd and Main, which was formerly the Wheeler Hospital. Anne Matteoli and Louise Morris presented a resume of their attendance to the Con- ference of Historical Societies in Eureka, wherein there were many fine speakers and tours of the notable places in the town and an outstanding brunch at the Carson Mansion; now the Ingomar Club. Biographies are coming in slowly and those who wish to be included are reminded that the deadline is fast approaching. Watch for news this month on a meeting place where folks can come for help. Please include photos as they make the biographies more in- teresting. Become a part of Cloverdale's history today. CONFUSION Sociely today is in a state of confusion. One of the reasons for the confusion stems from the mullitude of laws and rules made by our laws and rule makers. So many laws and rules have been made by our laws and rule makers that even our laws and rule makers have become confused, by the con- fusion. A wise observer said, "We make panic laws today. We don't make sense, we jusl make laws!" i DON'T SQUEEZE If you should happen to meet the President of the United Smes, please don't squeeze his hand. Presidents have to wear special protective gloves on their hands to protect themselves from the fervor of those who squeeze to please or squeeze because they are pleased. Squeezing causes bruised and bleeding hands...so please, don't squeeze the President. THOUGHTS If I think a thought and tell you I thought a thought I was thinking, and you think a thought because you thought about my thinking, other thoughts will be tho,ht about those thoughts. If I thought a thought you were thinking or thought a thought you weren't thinking, or thought about thoughts you thought weren'l thinking, it still wouldn't matter because thoughts would be thought because the thoughts weren't hought to be thinkable and thoughts would continue to be lhough! and would bring about more thoughtful thinking and all because I thought thoughts that were not thought to be thinking Thoughts are good, but they are just thoughts. Thoughis are part of the whole, but they are not an answer. Thoughts are thinking and thinking is good because tlioughts can and do reach out to make others think and become more thoughtful. Jusl lhink, as long as people are thinking toughts they are Ihinking thoughtfully and thoughtfully learning to think. Think aboul il ! OUT OF TOWN SHOPPERS - Nol everybody goes oul of town to sho, some people come in =o our town o shop, just to get away from the hassle. One appreciative oW-of-town customer came to Cloverdale to spend l he day and shop, leaving $350 behind. A friend, who was jusl visiling a friend, left $150. IJ's nice io know oul-of-lown shoppers shop Cloverdale. FREE THINKERS If you are driving along the freeway and see a lone driver wilh moulh moving, chances are it is not singing or speech practice lhat you are observing. More than likely the person is having a nice talk With himself. I did a little asking and found most people do talk Io hemselves when alone and most (if they are hOnest) wilt : admil ii when asked. I do it all the time and just didn't want to Ihink I was the only one who talked with myself, especially while driving alone on the freeway. Most also commented "It is alright to talk to yourself as long as you don't give yourself answers." But I do that, too, and have decided that's where I get the best answers. You, loo? Good, now let's get together, organize and start a "We Talk to Ourselves" club. We may even apply for a govern- ment funded grant and get enough money to do a study and research the vossibility that humans may derive more pleasure and create more good from talking to themselves, by Ihemselves. Who knows, it may open up a whole new world of lhoughl and a whole new way for humans to get along with each other in this world of conflict. I am really excited about the idea. The possibility exists Ihat if we humans only talked to ourselves and never Io other humans, we would be furthering the cause of peace in the world for all mankind and it would be forever. No one would ever have to know the ugly thought that man harbors againsl his neighbor because man would never tell. As I see it, it is the only way to express one's feelings and be heard, Ihe only free way to rid oneself of one's frustrations, say everything that is one one's mind, and never harm anyone. There would be no misunderstandings. Before you laugh, just consider the ! "pliticai''e,ad im- plicali0ns and where Ihat possibility could . If you wish to join the "We Talk To Ourselves" club, it is easy, Ihe "At Homers" can jusl keep up the good work. To Ihe Freeway Talking Driver, when and if you should meet other Freeway Talking Drivers, just smile keep driving, and keep laiking. Before submitting this piece to the "Reveille," I phoned Barb oul at Jet Trucking and she too admits to talking Io herself and swears Ibat's where she gets the best answers. Righl on, Barb. Join the club! I I Manzanita Manor Musings By the time you read this, the movie will be over, Halloween will be a thing of the past and the move toward the holiday season will have begun. In just two months, 1980'will be a thing of the past, too, and many of us have a tendency to get caught up in our own circle of living from day to day that we lose sight of some of the momentary, special things that fleet quickly in and oul of our personal existence. All eyes are focusing on the November election and by the time you read this we will have a new presidenF: (or an old one, as the case may be) and some people will be glad, others mad, still others frustrated. To many people, the future looks frightening in the light of world events, future pblems in their own lives and everything seems hopelessly bleak - but I have news for you! No matter who you are, what you are, God is still there) he's still on the throne and He loves you! As we look forward to Thanksgiving, I ,suggest the making of a list of things to thank God for, including the mistakes we've made, because we learn from them! Let's take tme to forgive those who have wronged us and reach out to those in need and who cannot return the favor. I was sorry to learn yesterday that Pastor and Mrs. West of the church of God of Prophecy, after many years ot service, will be moving to petaluma to accept a position there. They have beret a great blessing to the community as well as to the residents here, and we will miss them greatly. May God bless them abundantly in their new work. A special event is in the planning for Thanksgiving Day at the Manor. A spec.ja banquet for the resiaems and staff and their im- mediate families will be served. If you fall in either category, we'll be pleased to haveyou! The menu sounds delicious and traditonal. 1 guess I'll have to give up my diet that day so I won't miss out on the goodies! At the last minute, we received the following letter from ParaMedical Services Exhibit Coordinator for their 19eO Art Show at the CAHF eonven tion : "Congratulations to you, your Activity Director, and your resident, Victor Zimmerman, in winning an 'Honorable Mention' at ParaMedical Services 1980 Art Show at the CAHF convention. All the arts and crafts displayed totaled approximately I00 different items and the judging certainly was a great task for our judges. On behalf of ParaMedical Services, please present the enclosed ribbon to Mr. Zimmerman with our congratulations. Again, thank you for your participation in our Art Show." We are justifiably proud of Mr. Zimmerman, the photographer, Sylvia Sch- winn, and our facility for this award. We will display it with the picture in the Manor as son as it is returned from the show. American Legion A uxiliary edford William Russell-L Unit 293 By DENA GAMBETTA Again, William Russell I.dford Post 293, American Legion Auxiliary hfis once again come through for the City of Cloverdale, by providing a service of loan out equipment to anyone needing such, equipment on a free loan out basis. This week, the auxiliary pur- chased another wheelchair to add to their present equipment, since wheelchairs seem to be in such great demand, and always seem to be out. These wheelchairs are quite expensive, and the auxiliary is grateful to the Silva Pharmacy for procuring the wheelchair at a discount, since it was to be used for the benefit of the comunity. The auxiliary for many years, through their Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation program, have had wheelchairs, walkers, canes, tri-bars, potty chairs, and other equipment to loan out to the community on a short-term basis, free of charge. Theresa Tollini is in charge of the loan out equipment, and has been most gracious for many years, to store the equip- ment, in her garage. All you have to do is sign out for the equipment needed and it is generally on a three mouth basis, and if needed longer will renew the contract for another three months. This equipment is not for a long range need, as the auxiliary is not wealthy enough to provide all the wheelchairs in demand. For instance, if one broke their leg or had a serious operation and was in need of the wheelchair or other equipment for a short recovery period, that is the purpose of the program. The Past President's Parley chairman for the district is requesting all past presidents of the units that we provide on kleenex box cover for the women's barracks at the California Veterans HOme at Yount- ville for Christmas. If yo already do not have a pallern, here is a pattern: No. 9 needles, cast on 34 sts and work in garter st. (K each row) for 2-3/4 inches. 2rid row: K across each row casting on I0 sts at end of each row for sides (54 sts). Work even for 2-% more Theresa Tollini is shown with the new by the American Legion Auxiliary to be adde(I te loan-out equipment. Photo by Janice. inches. Next row: K across 14 sts, bind off next 26 sts for top opening, K across remaining 14 sts. Work even until side measures 4 inches from cast on sts. Next two rows: Bind off 10 sts at beginning of each row. Work even on remaining 34 center sts for 2% inches, bind off. 4 corner of si sts around and top opening. If you don't pattern use own.
