Until recently the milling of flour here was done in large part by donkeys and horses, harnessed to primitive millstones, which they turned day and night. The method is slow and expensive because of the many animals that have to be fed. The first electr',c mill here was installed by Brother Lucien Greit- zke, S.V.D., a technician skilled m improvising machinery as needs arise. To generate electricity he ]sed an old automobile motor with charcoal, an inexpensive fuel here. The plans of brother Lucien's mill have been copied by many small firms. I Funeral Director GLENN S.
