F.aeh winter in zero-degree temperatures, he cuts partly by hand 11)0.000 pounds of ice from Smith Pond in northern Maine. Hefrigeration virtual ' wiped out the natural ice industry, which boomed between 1870 and 1020. Dionne's small business is one of the three remaining in the state. Dionne sells his block ice for four cents a pound, compared to 10-15 cents a pound for commercial ice. His wooden ice-house sits on the edge of the spring fed trout pond just outside Milli-nocket. Most of those who stop to buy ice arc tourists and campers traveling to nearby Baxter State Park, a 200.000-acre w ilderness. Dionne admits his business is a far cry from the old multi-million dollar operations which shipped ice halfway around the world. "But it's important to me and mv family to carry on the tradition," he added. "My children are the third generation to take ice from Smith Pond." Dionne, 40, was nine when he first started cutting ice and back then it was all by hand. "My father, Alex Dionne, had to go into Millinocket almost every day when the weather warmed up for ice to put in the ice box," he said during an interview in three feet of snow outside the ice "He was always frustrated in trying to find the ice man. And driving back lo Smith Pond was a half-hour trip on a rough dirt road, and the ice often melted on the floor of his Model A Ford. So he decided we would cut our own. "We used a logger's cross-saw minus one of the handles on the end," Dionne went on. "We would load four cakes at a time on a sled. Dad would harness himself up like a horse, and he pullec! while I pushed. "It wasn't long before neighbors began asking to buy ice, and that's how the business started." Alex Dionne ran the business until his death in 1970 and left it to his son. Dionne cuts ice between Christmas and New Year's Day. It usually takes two days from sunup to sundown, depending on the weather. "We have to keep the snow cleared off the part of the pond we cut because snow acts as insulation.

Willi the help f his wife, three daughters and son, he then cuts 11 inches into the ice with a 24-inch blade mounted on skis. This machine, powered by a gas rn-gint. was designed by his father. Five fields of 150 cakes each are cut into a checkerboard pattern. Each cake is Hi inches wide, 18 inches long and weighs 200 250 pounds. We don't cut ail the way through the ice until the last minute or water would seep into the line and refreeze immediately," Dionne said. "A dozen men go out with us on the second day to make the final cut by hand and load the blocks into the ice house." Wearing ice creepers on their feet to prevent slipping, the men break small sheets of ice away from the main field with 20-pound busting bars. "This begins the real hard work, and you don't take time for any coffee breaks. You've got to work real fast," Dionne said. The blocks are taken out of the water with tongs and slid onto a wooden sluice into the back of a pickup. They arc unloaded by pulley at the ice house. "We place the blocks 11 across and 7 tiers up and put sawdust on the top," Dionne said. "But even with the sawdust, I still lose about half of the ice each year lo melting." Dionne. who is head fireman at the steam plant of a paper company, has his permanent residence in Millinocket. But in the summer he and his family stay at Smith Pond in their combination camp-store just a few feet from the ice-house. Hops Going to Pot KUNNEWICK, Wash.
