In the renewal of softball rivalry vith one of their traditional foes, an aggressive Triplett team fighting for every break defeated Pandora, 4 to 3, under the floodlights at Harmon field, last Thursday night. Bluffton took full advantage of shaky Pandora ball handling in the first inning to score three runs on a scratch hit, a base on balls and three errors, and another run was added in the sixth inning to pro vide the winning margin. Triplett Softball Team Scores 4-3 VictorJ-Dver Pandora Outfit Except for the first-inning debacle, Pandora played air-tight ball, and if the players in the lineup were “im ported” as reported, someone had done a good job in selecting them. Spaeth started on the mound for Bluffton, and breezed along in good style until the fifth inning when the heat began catching up with him. After two men had been retired in that stanza, a home run, a triple and an error gave Pandora two runs. The visitors added another tally in the sixth, but Triplett batsmen coun tered with a run in their half of the same stanza to again take the lead. Bluffton was outhit by the visitors, six to five, but headsup ball enabled the locals to “cash in” on nearly every scoring opportunity presented.

These travel in schools and stay within a yard of the edge of the banks. Water in which the larvae are found is sprayed with a special pre paration that gives double assurance of killing the wrigglers. Poison in the spray paralyzes the larvae, and a toxic film which form over the water shuts off oxygen from them. In most cases they die within half an hour.

The spray preparation comes in concentrated form, which is diluted with water. It is applied with a five-gallon pressure spray. Fish are not harmed at all by the preparation. Approximately 1,000 gallons of the larvicide have been used in the con trol program so far this summer, but the cost has been negligible in view of the fact that the diluted spray can be prepared for less than three cents per gallon. Surveys have shown that the breeding places which must be watched the closest is in the stretch of the Little Riley which runs thru the Bluffton college campus, and from the edge of the campus to Riley creek. Fish Hslp Fewer mosquito larvae have been found in the Big Riley, possibly be cause there are more fish in that stream. Fish feed on the wrigglers, thereby simplifying the control pro gram, Oyer said. In addition to spraying the streams, all catch basins in the town are oiled once a week by Oyer. The town dump and the old quarry which adjoins it also are sprayed regularly. Much of the success of the control program is attributed to the town wide cleanup of rubbish, tin cans, etc., which inaugurated the drive last spring. It was stressed again this week that residents should not relax in the cleanup of their properties for constant vigilance is necessary to assure adequate elimination of the mosquitoes. Spraying of cisterns was especially recommended, for it is thought that most of the mosquitoes which are found breed in such places. In hauling his equipment and mak ing surveys, Oyer uses an automobile donated for that purpose by the Bixel Motor Sales.

Mrs. Bucher has been failing in health during the past months but not complaining. At the close of the day’s work on Tuesday, she was taken to her Heavenly home. On Oct. 29, 1905 she was given in marriage to Daniel Bucher. The Lord blessed this union with five children. Mrs. Jeanette Hilty and Mrs. Mabel Hilty of Pandora Miss Barbara Bucher of Chicago Clayton Bucher, at home and Milton Ray, who preceeded her in death at the age of ten months in the year 1921. Also two grandchildren, Wendalyn Lou and Sarah Helen Hilty. There are three brothers surviving her, David Diller of Columbus Grove, John and Albert Diller of Bluffton five sisters, Mrs. John Bixler, Mrs. Peter Nusbaum, Mrs. Peter C. Herr, and Miss Mary Diller, all of Bluff ton and Miss Fannie Diller of Chicago. Three brothers and one sister preceded her in death: Lizzie, Samuel, Peter and Eli. In early youth she gave her heart to God and her life to the service of the Ebenezer Mennonite church. Her entire life has been spent in this community. Her natural dispo sition was to be quiet, reserved and tender-hearted but her character ran deep and her worth is attested by the love of a large circle of friends. To know her was to love her. As a wife she was a devoted and faithful woman as a mother she was sweet, tender-hearted and always sacrificing for her family, a mother of the highest ideals. Our memories of her are precious, such as reading the Bible, listening to the words of God as it was given over the air daily and always faith ful at her task. The memories are a heritage rich er than any gifts she could leave. Heaven has become more precious to us because of her life and death as we have rich treasures in Heaven. She was a lover of flowers and God’s outdoor. Among her collec tions of poems, the following was found in her Bible: Oh, glorious day when I shall hear The blessed Saviour’s call! When I shall leave the sorrows here, Ascending to His thrall. I’ll see the land of glory where Eternal rest is mine Eternal love, eternal peace, Eternal things Divine. Oh, let us gather, Christian, then, And spread the Gospel far, Then we will know the Saviour’s smile When we have crossed the bar. And what will earthly trials be When we’ve been taken Home? The pain we knew we shall forget Around our Saviour’s throne. His love will heal all earthly wounds, Give tired souls their rest— So let us labor, Christians, then, For we are surely blest.

University of Chicago excavators are working on a site in the Near East which they believe will prove to be the ancient capital of the Hit tites, Washuganne. Learns Names by Camera Applying his subject to the daily task of taking roll call, Dr. Charles Marsh, psychology instructor at Stephens college, learned to call his 200 students by name within three weeks. Theretofore he had felt fortunate if he learned them all by the end of the semester. Dr. Marsh used a miniature cam era and took pictures of all the stu dents. He pasted each picture in the roll book alongside a name. By associating the name with the picture he soon was able to call each girl by name upon sight. TFFTON NEWS, BLUFFTON, OHIO Prepared by National Geographic Society. Washington. D. C.—WNV Service. Gtransformed Even in the depths of the depres sion in 1931 Pennsylvania was pro ducing 60,000,000 tons of anthracite and 97,000,000 tons of bituminous coal, or approximately a third of the nation’s entire coal output. When you consider how much the country owes to its vast supplies of sunshine stored up in the earth through millions of years, you real ize Jhqw great is its debt to Penn sylvania, for in service to humanity coal far outshines the magic wonders of Aladdin’s legendary lamp. As one travels through the coal fields, there are many sights remi niscent of a century of mining. One sees in the anthracite fields every type of coal breaker, from the old dry breaker with dust everywhere and much of the coal wasted, to the latest Rheolaveur breaker where water is used from beginning to end, and where even the dust is saved. Tremendous Coke Production. Pennsylvania is the nation’s fore most producer of coke. For generations the beehive coke oven had its day. It was a waste ful day, it is true, but the beehive oven fitted its time. It was not until the World war period that it relinquished first place to by-prod uct ovens. Then the cry went up for more and more of the chemicals hidden in bituminous coal to take their place in the explosives that were indeed “the power behind the gun’’ of war-making. Now the alchemist of coal is getting more coke out of a ton of coal made in a by-product oven than could be obtained in a beehive oven, and in addition he is able to capture enough ammonia and its compounds, light oil and its de rivatives, gas, tar, fine coke, and other products to bring the total value of by-products up to $3.86 per ton, all of which were lost in the old-time beehive oven. Those were spectacular nights be fore the World war when one rode for miles through the beehive oven districts. Today those old ovens stand row after row along scores of railroad tracks, some almost completely in ruins but others look ing as if they might be fired again tomorrow. Pig Iron and Steel. Polishing plate glass in Pennsylvania factory. Coal, Coke, Steel, Cement and Glass Are Pennsylvania's Great industries REAT events have hap pened and the lives of all Americans have been in many ways since Obediah Gore, the Con necticut blacksmith, moved to the Wilkes-Barre country and taught the neighborhood smiths how to fire their forges with anthracite since Jesse Fell in vented the grate for burning hard coal in homes since Philip Ginter stubbed his toe on a piece of hard coal and there by laid the foundations of the Lehigh Coal and Navigation system of coal mines and coal roads. .i Pennsylvania’s role in the iron and steel industry is as remarkable as her position in the coal and coke industry of the nation. In 1931 the Keystone state produced only 1 per cent of the nation’s iron ore, but it turned out 28 per cent of its pig iron and 32 per cent of its steel. With every 1,000 tons of pig iron requiring in its making about 1,800 tons of ore, 700 tons of limestone, 1,000 tons of coke, and 4,500 tons of air driven by powerful fans, one may easily imagine that its produc tion is the Keystone state’s heavy industry. There was in the days of peak production no more inspiring night sight than the view from a high hill at Pittsburgh, looking down the Ohio and up the Monongahela and the Al legheny rivers, beholding Titan at work, transforming ore into pig iron. The era of the Bessemer process in converting pig iron into steel is largely gone in the Keystone state. No longer do these huge metallic eggshells send their streams of fiery sparks heavenward. The awesome “spitting” of the spectacular con verter during certain periods of the blowing of air through its molten contents has given place to the open hearth. New Ways of Making Cement. Here enormous jets of gas flame are played over the molten pig met al, producing iron oxide which com bines with added iron ore to form a basic slag—the “skimmings” of the fiery caldron. Chapel Made of Salt In the Wieliczka salt mines, near Cracow, Poland, there are sculp tured chapels hewn from crystal salt. One of these is the Chapel of St. Kinga, more than 150 feet long, which is lighted by large chande liers of transparent salt. On the walls are sculptures consisting of scenes from the life of Christ. The floor of grained salt, cut in octag onal blocks, resembles marble. Nowhere in industrial Pennsylva nia does one discover more progress in processes than in the cement in dustry. A pilgrimage through a ce ment plant 20 years ago was like working at the “bunghole” of a threshing machine before the days of the straw’ blowers. There was dust everywhere. As one surveyed the horizon of Lehigh and North ampton counties, it seemed that there W’ere a hundred whirlwinds perpetually blowing and marking the sites of the cement plants scat tered over the countryside. Today it is different. Now the rock is crushed under streams of water and the final powdering of the stone produces a sludge of about the consistency of mush. This is introduced into the big rotary kilns e-some of them as much as 120 feet long and 15 feet in diameter."'- Here it meets a stream of pow dered coal under a flame that gives a temperature of from 2,500 to 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit. The coal has been so finely ground that 95 per cent of it will pass through a screen that has 10,000 meshes to the square inch. When the powdered coal, the sludge, the fiery heat, and a regulat ed amount of air meet, glass-hard clinkers are formed. These clinkers in turn are the in termediate materials between ce ment rock and the finished product. They are mixed with heavy steel oval-shaped globules and conveyed into rotary grinders. Round and round these big machines turn hour after hour until all the clinkers have been ground almost to impalpable dust, in which form it is Portland cement. Among all of Pennsylvania’s dra matic industries there is none pos sessing greater fascination than plate-glass making. Such opaque substances as salt cake, pure lime stone, and quartz sand go into a furnace in 3,500-pound batches, be come liquid, and then pass out as a continuous sheet of plate glass which is cut, ground, and polished until it is as transparent as thin air* In a Plate Glass Plant. Up the Allegheny river from Pitts burgh stands the little village of Creighton. On its outskirts is the largest plate-glass plant in th® world. The company owns at its back door the coal mine that sup plies its fuel, for coal is used in such quantities that such a plant is always located near its fuel supply rather than close to its raw ma terial. Here are huge bins for storing salt cake, soda ash, glass sand, limestone, and other ingredients. There is the giant furnace that holds 1,200 tons of molten glass. With a colored glass shield before your eyes look into the fiery fur nace. Here are little hills and tiny mountains, survivals of the last 3,500-pound mouthful of material dumped in. There you see a minia ture lake of incandescent molten mixture. Twenty-one days of warming are required to bring the temperature of the furnace up to operating re quirements. The marvel is that its linings can be made heat-resistant enough to stand temperatures that convert sand and limestone into liq uid and to take that punishment for months on end. At the rear of the furnace is a giant lip out of which the molten glass flows. Glowing hot, of doughy consistency, it passes under tremen dous rollers, which convert it into a ribbon about 7 feet wide. Along this it travels through an annealing lehr for 400 feet. By now it is cool enough for the cutters who trim off the edges, cut it into lengths, and mark the defective spots. Then a sort of mechanical spider with vacuum-cup feet swoops down on each piece, lifts it high over head, and deposits it in a plaster-of paris film on the six-ton cast-iron car that is to be its bed while pass ing under the grinding machines, where sand and emery smooth it down.. From these grinders the plate passes under the felt-footed polishers where enough rouge to col or the lips and cheeks of an army of women is used to produce that perfection of smoothness which gives perfect vision through your motor window. After the glass has traveled 125 feet in the fiery furnace, 400 feet on the cooling lehrs, 400 feet under the grinders, and 400 feet under the pol ishers, it is ready for its trip through the Duplate works where two pieces are cemented together with a DuPont product and be come safety glass. Double Duty Legislation Officials foresee increased sales for the rubber industry and greater safety for pedestrians and motorists under the revised Pennsylvania mo tor vehicle code which became ef fective last September. The amend ment makes unlawful the operation of a car with tires showing “breaker strip, cushion gum or fabric.” Vio lators are fined $10 on summary conviction. 4 ts. 1 Two home games will be played this week by the Triplett softball team, with contests scheduled for Wednesday and Friday nights.
