Family Weekly The Baytown Sun Weekend Magazine Delectable Job Requires Sweet Tooth FULTON, N.Y. (AP) — How would you like to get paid for eating chocolate goodies all day? Harold Kenyon does — and he's not complaining a bit. Kenyon has the most delectable profession imaginable — one courted and coveted by children and chocolate lovers of all ages. Kenyon is an organoleptic analyst for the Nestles chocolate plant in Fulton; in laymen's terms — a chocolate taster. Kenyon and fellow chocolate taster Phil Williams tarry daily in a chocolate-lovers' heaven — tasting, smelling, analyzing and testing the internationally loved commodity in all shapes, sizes, flavors and varieties. "People always say to me 'Boy, I wish I had your job.' The job certainly does have its rewards, and eating chocolate is one of them," said Kenyon, who specializes in analyzing candy bars. ''And I love chocolate, or 1 wouldn't be doing this job," he added. Williams, a specialist in beverage tasting, said, "Kids go wild when they hear we eat chocolate all day long. What a job!" But although being an organoleptic analyst naturally includes chocolate tasting, a true chocolate connoisseur must . employ all of his physical senses in the analysis of the products. "That means using every sensual perception possible to analyze the chocolate's flavor, odor, mouth-feel, appearance and texture," explained Curtis Norpell, quality control manager for Nestles. "Chocolate analyzing is not just popping a piece into your mouth; it involves a few minutes of real concentrating to determine smoothness, creaminess and richness of flavor," Williams noted as he carved off a small piece of chocolate from a larger chunk, examined it, and then rolled it around in his mouth, concentrating fully on the creaminess, taste, and feel of the chocolate morsel. Then, he tasted the "perfect sample" chocolate piece, the established control standard the test piece is analyzed against. "We don't talk while we're tasting the chocolate product. We need to concentrate fully on the analysis," Kenyon said. Soda crackers or water are available to tasters who wish to "clear their palates" before tasting various samples, .Norpell explains. •'; Kenyon and Williams estimate they spend more than three hours each day actually tasting chocolate products. Have their waistlines increased from this daily chocolate saturation? "Nope," said Williams, a 33-year company employee with 16 years of Chocolate tasting under his belt. "I can eat it and eat it and it doesn't bother me a bit." Kenyon, also a chocolate analyst for 16 years and Nestle employee for 27 years, admits to having to fight the chocolate calorie gains occasionally. "However, I've only gained 5-6 pounds since I've been on the job; we walk all the chocolate off each day." Historic Wood Houses Rotting Away T O T 1 A M Ti TTT ....t_~J - __ i _• *• \ ISTANBUL, Turkey (AP) — The 19th-century wood houses of Istanbul, precious remnants of the old city, are threatened with extinction. Neglect, insects, moisture and changing social conditions have destroyed almost ail but 1 percent of the city's wood houses. The remaining houses are distinguished by second-story bay windows and fanciful woodwork. The jutting window, knoWn as a "havat" (a Turkish word meaning life), was the lifeline of Turkish women of the last century. From behind the elaborate wood screens, they could sit and survey the street without being seen. The gingerbread carving characteristic of these houses derives from a !ong and sophisticated trati- tion of woodwork in Turkey. Intricately carved and inlaid doors and cabinets from the Middle Ages can still be seen in Topkapi, the palace of the Ottoman sultans, and in many mosques. The best-preserved houses are on the Prince's Islands in the Sea o f Marmara,' 90 minutes from Istanbul by ferry and since the 1800s the favo,red summer vacation spot of the city's upper class. But the highest concentration of wood houses is found in two partially industrialized, down-at-heels districts, Suley- maniye and Zeyrek, located in the historic center of Istanbul. Surrounded by Istanbul's most famous mosques and ba- zaars, the traditional wood houses here are rotting away. Hundreds of thousands of immigrants from rural Anatolia who have poured into Istanbul since 1960 in search of work and better lives have passed through the run-down wood houses of Zeyrek and Suleymaniye, living four or five to a room and sharing a common toilet. Often the houses lack kitchens and even running water. As soon as they can, the immigrants, most of them landless peasants, move on to the new residential areas that have sprung up around the fringes of the city. Between 1977 and 1980, 35 of the 224 wood houses in Zeyrek collapsed. More were lost last winter. UNESCO, the universities of Zurich, Switzerland, and Darmstadt, West Germany, and the German A r- cheological Institute of Istanbul have all conducted studies aimed at preserving the city's wood Clinic Helps Amazon Jungle Villagers C?

Z e y r^e k and Suleymaniye are designated as historic preservation zones, but the hard- pressed government has little money available for architectural preservation. In a country so crowded with ancient and medieval monuments, renovation of buildings from the recent past has low priority. Why tight the Crowds?

Started in 1969 by the Rev. Luke Tupper, a Franciscan father, Esperanca has grown into a full- fledged clinic that provides everything from nutritional advice to surgery in the sleepy little river town of Santarem, which lies 1,652 miles northwest of the inland capital of Brasilia. "He started by vac- cinating the people, mostly a mixture of Indians and whites," said DeAnne Messias, a 35-year- old native of Bloomington, 111. "Now we have trained villagers to take care of their own." Tupper died in 1978, but a group of mostly young people have carried on his work in the heart of the Amazon. The nonprofit organization maintains fundraising headquarters in Phoenix, Ariz. "There are hundreds of villages that we visit, and each has between 50 and 200 families," Ms. Messias said. "These are simple people, subsistence farmers and fishermen." These are people who are dying from malnutrition, parasitic diseases, malaria and tuberculosis, she added. Ms. Messias, coordinator of community health, says Esperanca has trained 14 rural health aides, people who work in their own villages after having undergone a six- month training program to handle examinations and first aid. Another 20 to 50 villagers are called health promoters, and they offer very basic care in the outlying areas, he said. "They are the barefoot doctors," Ms. Messias said. But administrative director Ronaldo Bertagnoli, 41, says the program is changing so that many of the villagers are either treated by the health aides or come into the clinic that sits along a dusty, dirt road. "It's a change from the one-shot treatment and waiting for us, V ''the Chicago native said. "They (health aides) now do the vaccinations, they do the treatment in many cases." Surgical teams volunteer their time and pay their pas- sagetothecity. 3rd ANNUAL HANDCRAFTERS Christmas Craft Sale 2309 Morning Drive Friday, Dec. 3rd Saturday, Dec. 4th 9 a*-6 p* 9 am-3 pm Christmas wreaths decorations, ornaments- wooden items-chrochet-homemade candies & breads-ceramics-macrame sewing- quilt ing-stained glass-plcyits-dolls- paintings-wind chimes-ceramics-E.T.-Mr & Mrs. Santa Caw M By...Browse...Briif a fried Mt • Ccfarfcrfw Jr. MWi ALL DRESS SHOES Capezio • jMpmg-Jacks CkiMile Boys & Girls Infants thru Pre-Teen CHILDREN WORLD Diamonds For the touch of love.
