confident will exceed its quota.
We shall have interesting facts

whole wonderful enterprise.
The Sunday School at 9:30 is

"God's Hand in a Nation's Life."

The Wood. County Farm Bureau
in 1918 assisted numerous farmers
in marketing their wool. The wool
was shipped to and sold under the
Ohio Sheep and Wool Growers' As
sociation. Their charge for keeping
the farmers' wool separate and
grading and selling was one-half
cent per pound.
Those who marketed their wool in
this manner received a net price of
70 'to 73 cents per pound within one
month after wool was delivered.
Arrangements have been made to
have Mr. J. F. Walker, Secy: Ohio
tion, come to Bowling Green, Fri
day, April 4, to discuss plans for
marketing the 1919 clip.

BOYS HAVE LANDED
TO BE IN TOLEDO SOON
Back in the Good Old States After Many
Long Months in Foreign Lands. Their
Task is Finished, "Home Again"
GIVE OUR HEROES A MOST HEARTY WECOME
The eyes of all of Northwestern
Ohio are focused on Toledo and
are eagerly waiting for the day to
be set for the welcome home to
Toledo and Northwestern Ohio of
the bos's of the old 6th Regiment
and the 35th Field Artillery when
these two contingents will parade
the streets of the Metropolis of
Northwestern Ohio and will be of
ficially welcomed as returned
heroes in their own beloved state.
By far the largest contingent of
Perrysburg boys who have yet
come from overseas are members
of these two regiments and it is
planned to have both regiments
arrive in Toledo and parade to
gether on the same day, and as all
of Northwestern Ohio will travel
to Toledo on that day we are sug
gesting at the request of many
Perrysburg people that our people
turn out en masse, close up our
stores and business places and
everyone who possibly can go to
Toledo and join in the glad wel
come to our own boys. It has
been further suggested that all
Perrysburg people who attend this
big welcome party make an effort
to get a place along the line of
march where they can all be to
gether and that a banner or ban
ners designating the Perrysburg
delegation be procured and used

big welcome and reception, for all
the Perrysburg and Perrysburg

ed that nearly all the boys will be

well for this committee to take this
matter of the Toledo reception to
the bojs who are arriving this
week in hand so that there be' a
head and a system to our part of
the welcome party.
The exact time for the Toledo

but it is thought that it will be
about April 1st, but preparations
could and should be made and
when the date was definitely
known it would only mean notify

to fittingly join .Toledo in this
