Lining up in the morning, perhaps to pledge allegiance. That's the new schoolbuilding made of timber and galvanized iron (GI) sheets roof.
Tug of war. I think this was the first 'war' between Mainit and Guina-ang. I don't know who won (wasn't born then) but had stonewall jackson not gone off to war-
There were no anti-war demonstrations then.
The roller mill is drawn by a water buffalo, or pushed by men.
The crushing mill is made up of three vertical cylindrical rollers with a very heavy timber beam attached on the top to turn the gears. A juice drainer is placed between the rollers. The canes are inserted between the rollers and crushed as the beam is turned.
Carabaos draw the vawer or beam round and round for about a couple of hours at a time. Sometimes the other draft animals (humans) give the water buffaloes a rest and take turns at pushing the beam.
Cane juice is extracted by the mill and collected in large vats. This is then boiled or 'cooked' in a hut also at the mill site. Various sugarcane products result from the milling.
At the end of each milling day, everyone involved in the saknit, takes home a share of timva and inti.
Guess what gifts the schoolkids exchange with each other at the Christmas break. No prizes for guessing. Tinva of course.
That's the old Grades 1-4 building.
