Antiques Add That Touch .iii"! ||f '''"I r Horse brasses from England accent the marttfe of the brick fireplace in the paneled family room. These ornamental brasses designated each owner's horses and each one in their collection is different. Their gleatny looks take a lot of polishing, but it is something Mr. and Mrs. Johansen enjoy doing together, when they aren't playing golf, that is. The living room wall-to-wall carpeting, flax draperies and painted walls, are all in a soft shade of green.

By ALICE BROCKMAN (Staff Writer) "It just wouldn 't be home without a cuckoo clock," Mrs. William Johansen says of her home. Mf. and MM . Johansen have lived in their custom-built home near Lake ftfacken for one year now, and the cuckoo clock from th€ Black Forest of Germany is always the first item to be hung whenever they move. Their home is almost completely decorated, except someday Mrs. Johansen plans to paper the bathroom. , Visitors are greeted by Swiss cowbells tinkling in the entrance foyer. Inside, the beauty and warmth of the Johansen home is reflected in the antiques which they acquired when they lived in England, Mrs. Johansen's collection of Toby Jugs by Royal Doulton, and paintings by their son, William, who teaches art at the University! of Georgia in Athens. The house, on four levels, has four bedrooms on the top level, an L-shaped living and dining room, plus kitchen, on the second, a family room, utility and half-bath on the third, and a game room with a pool table on the lower level. When the couple was first married, Mr. Johansen made a carpenter's bench to use as a coffee table, and now it adds the finishing itouch to the game room. Decorate Den Mr. Johansen, who is distribution center manager for Corn Products Co., Intl., has been transferred several times. In order to feel at home wherever they live, they first decorate the den, which is in one of the bedrooms. Mrs. Johansen recalled that at first she ate her lunch in this room because it looked almost] identical to the den in their last home. Sunlight streams into the house through large windows, a bay in the living room, and French doors in the family room and master bedroom, which open onto double decks at the rear of the house. The Johansens have discovered a new hobby—•bird 1 watching. They keep a tray outside the large paned kitchen window, filled with birdseed. Woodpeckers, blue jays and nuthatches provide a constant stream of color and flight around the deck and dining areas of the house. Mrs. Johansen said that it is hard in the winter time to get her housework done, because it is so fascinating to watch the cardinals and purple finches at the feeder. The inevitable squirrels flock to the feeding stations, too, and visitors are reminded of their presence by a "Squirrel Crossing" sign on the deck. "TO, .« • flip M I ifiiiiniAiii m. T |'/ JU Mrs. Johansen, standing on the top deck, says that she and her husband enjoy the woodland setting of their home, which complements the cypress siding of the house, stained a mellow gray. The double deck is always shaded, and surround* ed with song birds. The still life over the sofa, painted by the Johansen's son, William, has been an important part of the decorating scheme in every house the Johansens have owned. The painting, in earthy browns and reds, ties in with the other colors in the living room, green and brown. 1 Decoupage, stitchery and other crafts and hobbies of Mrs. Johansen are displayed on the wall of the elevated kitchen dining area. Antiques, painted milk can, washstand, woven tablecloth and brass from England, decorate the family room, four steps down, and the kitchen.

Fishermen: Put Safety On the Hook Register-Mail Photos by Dale Humphrey To STEIN'S For THE VMC Of YOUR lift RICOH WATCHES For Men & Women —- All Self Winding Calendar. Heavy Gold Cases. Instant Set Calendars. Leo Stein & Sons, Inc. JEWELRY DEPT. 349 E. MAIN ST. — Downtown Galesburg I •aiespurg MM •m NEW YORK (UPI).- Fishing rests the body and emotions. But it has some built-in hazards causing preventable accidents. The American Medical Assn. (AMA) says the most common fishing accident sinks a barbed hook in the flesh, usually a finger or hand. Sometimes the hook digs into a leg or some other part of the body. Many of these accidents are caused by lures and hooks left unprotected on a dock or on the bottom of a boat. The wise fisherman shields the hook. The AMA suggests: "Stick a small cork over the barbed point. Store lures in the tackle box until needed; return them to the box when removed from, the leader. The band of a favorite fishing hat is a reasonably safe place to keep lures intended for later use." Many hook mishaps stem from careless casting by fly or bait fishermen. "Look before each cast to make certain no one is in the way," suggests AMA. "This will save lures from snagging on trees and bushes as you cast." Other tips from the AMA: —To remove the hook from a fish, hold the fish firmly under the gills, so that its head can't flop or wiggle. Get a firm grip before removing the hook. —If, despite precautions, a hook becomes imbedded in your flesh, don't try to pull it out. If you have a pair of cutting pliers in your tackle box, cut off the shank. Your physician will push the barb through, causing less damage to torn flesh. The doctor will also, if necessary, administer antibiotics and tetanus toxoid. Hook wounds often lead to infection unless treated properly. ^Jlte Ifleed to C^onierve £*iectricity *3i lf}ow, ~s$t Once By PATRICIA McCORMACK jsion housing specialist at the | —The clothes dryer, if you [This will cutdown power needed back the clothesline.
