200 Under Measles
Some 200 CCC enrolles at Camp
Findlay are suffering the penalties
for being under quarantine without
any of the benefits.
With five cases of measles among
the group, the camp was quaran
tined Thursday. For the next 14
days, the boys will be prohibited
from leaving camp, walking down
town and seeing the movies, their
favorite evening pastime.
But do they get out of work
ing? Not much. They will be trans

evening in camp, until the quar
antine is lifted.
Wheat Loans Result
Eighteen wheat loans were liqui
dated Tuesday with farmers realizing
approximately a four-cent profit per
bushel, members of the county AAA
committee said. About 3,000 bushels
were involved in the liquidation.
The committee has urged all farm
ers to liquidate their wheat loans in
the near future. All loans mature
at the end of eight months or on
April 30 whichever is earlier. Ap
proximately 80,000 bushels of wheat
have been made in Hancock county.
Puts Both Tags On
Rear Of Car
A motorist returned to the Find
lay Auto club, Thursday, and insist
ed he had received only one license
plate for his car when he purchased
his 1941 tags.
“I put a plate on the rear but I
haven’t any for the front”, he said.
“Maybe you put both plates on the
same place”, a clerk suggested.
A half hour later, the man was
back in the club again, his face as
red as a beet, admitting that was
just what happened.
Farmers believe that the wheat
sown last fall is coming out of the
winter in a satisfactory condition.
Nearly all the sowing had a fine
start before cold weather stopped
its growth, the root system getting
a firm foothold in the soil. The acre
age was up to standard and with no
untoward weather conditions a large
crop will be harvested.
