THURSDAY, JUNE 5, 1941
There is one young man in Bluff
ton who doesn’t know his own
strength. Kenneth Gable, son of
Mr. and Mrs. Levi Gable of North
Jackson street, substituted for his
father as janitor of the First Men
nonite church last Sunday. While
ringing the 8:30 bell for the morn
ing services he gave the rope such a
vigorous tug that the bell turned
bottom side up. The bell remained
in that position and Gable was un
able to ring it for the 9:00 o’clock
Sunday school services. On Monday
he crawled up to the tower and
righted the bell. After this, Gable
says that he will hold his energy a
bit more in reserve.
Fred (Luther Burbank) Getties
reports that his special Peony is
now in full bloom. He grew this
Peony from a seed and now has a
new variety. He expects to call it
the Wonderful-Rosey-Felt variety
(note the political angle).
Reminiscent of the earlier days
when every barber shop in town was
decorated with a red and white bar
ber pole, is the streamlined version
of the pole recently installed in
front of Patterson’s barber shop on
Main street. Built and painted by
Ray Patterson, the new sign is an
attractive and decorative red and
white metal piece fastened to a
black iron pole.
A unique race was staged recently
on Jefferson street near Lawn ave
nue when Roger Klay, Herbert
Devier and Bob Tour were holding
competition to see who could sail
their model airplanes the greatest
distance.
Blue smoke was reported hanging
over the golf course the other day
after Ed Chamberlain lost one of his
expensive new golf balls in the
muddy waters of the creek which
runs thru the course.
Although largely confined to his
home because of facial lacerations
received in a recent automobile ac
cident, Byron Fritchie, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Fred Fritchie of Riley
street, is using his time to good
advantage. He plays the drums and
also simpler selections on the piano.
Unable to pitch this summer for
local amateur soft ball teams,
Fritchie is vicariously experiencing
baseball thrills by listening in on
the radio to the major league ball
games.
It will be a long time before Bob
Coon, son of Marshal and Mrs. Lee
Coon of Jackson street, listens to
the advice of Evan “Doc” Soash,
life guard at the Buckeye lake.
Doc told Bob to pick up an appar
ently dead fish floating in the 5^
foot pool at the Buckeye. As Bob
grabbed ahold of the fish, it swam
away giving him quite a scare.
Bruce, two year old son of Mr.
and Mrs. Norman Triplett of Grove
street, either believes that his father
is a miracle man or else gets mixed
up on his verbal forms. While driv
ing in the family car, Bruce was
heard to say, “Turn the corner
around again, Daddy.”

Parks Air college in East St. Louis,
Ill., says that he certainly appreci
ates the direct rail connections be
tween Bluffton and St. Louis which
enables him to get home once every
month. He gets on the train at the
local Nickel Plate depot at 9:45 Sun
day night and arrives in St. Louis
about 7:30 o’clock in the morning
giving him ample time to get to his
first class at the air college at 8:00
o’clock. Usually he is able to sleep
soundly during the entire journey.
A Memorial Day picnic last Fri
day turned into a birthday surprise
party for Bill Edwards, up and
coming Bluffton merchant, who was
one of 16 in the group. Among the
presents he received were a cowboy
hat, a G-Man badge and handcuffs,
canvas riding gloves, cigar clippings,
a corncob pipe and an assortment
of toy balloons and bubble gum.
Mike Reichenbach and his two
dogs, a Collie and an Irish Setter
pup, killed more than 70 rats on
Memorial Day while tearing down
an abandoned chicken house on the
Rickley farm, three miles north of
Bluffton on the County Line road.
The rats were driven from their
burrows under the hen house floor.
A marathon golf match turned out
to be one of the unannounced fea
tures of the official opening of the
Bluffton Golf course last Friday.
Two men visiting in Bluffton for
the day played 48 holes of golf,
starting at 5:30 o’clock in the morn
ing, and playing continuously until
nightfall.
Reports that Doris Diller, Bluffton
college graduate and the daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. John Diller of
Jackson street, had attended the
former King of Siam, while he was
a patient for an eye operation at
John Hopkins hospital in Baltimore,
several years ago, were unfounded,
it was learned this week. The ex
king died in England last week.
Miss Diller was the nurse for J. P.
Morgan, when he was at the hos
pital, and it is believed the rumor
got its start from that fact.
June Sechler, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Leland Sechler of Main street,
has a tiny three pound Pomeranium
dog, that she can carry in her
pocket. She often takes the dog
along on her bike or carries it in
the basket. The dog, named “Boots”
was given to her by an aunt in
Findlay.
A 200-mile fishing trip to Michi
gan left Mr. and Mrs. Richard Burk
holder, of Bluffton, and a Lima
couple feeling rather let down over
the Memorial day week end. Arriv
ing at a lake near the Kellogg Bird
Sanctuary they learned fishing sea
son does not open until June 26,
and their rods and lines were of no
use to them.
Fred Muller, living north of town
on the Dixie hopes his streak of bad
luck with cattle feeding projects is
at an end. Muller lost three cows
last week as a result of eating paint
which they found in a discarded pail
in their pasture field. A fourth
cow for which little hopes were held,
was considerably improved, Tuesday.
Muller’s ill fortune began last win
ter when a cow smothered to death
under a straw stack which toppled
on her.
Comes a report that an option on
a building site near the business dis
trict was taken last week which
may lead to the erection of a new
factory structure. Nothing definite
yet relative to building which may
depend largely on obtaining govern
ment defense contracts. Best in
formation is that the option was
taken as a preparedness measure.
If there’s luck in finding a four
leaf clover, there should be a lot
more luck in a six leaf clover which
Lester Niswander found at his home
on North Lawn avenue, Friday. The
clover was almost perfectly formed,
he said. Niswander reports having
found previously seven leaf clovers.
“Chee-chee” is back—the little fox
terrier belonging to Rev. V. H.
Allman south of town on the for
mer Fett farm, returned last Friday
after an absence of nearly two
weeks. A lost advertisement for
Chee-chee appeared in the Bluffton
News last week—perhaps the dog
read the ad.
Remember Ginnivan & Good—the
show that used to stop at Bluffton
for a week’s stand every summer
playing under canvas on Schmidt’s
field? They dropped Bluffton from
their list a good many years ago—
but they still make Columbus Grove
—they were at the Grove last week
and some of the old-timers here
who as boys used to crawl under
the tent slipped over to see them
again.
There was a near-accident in the
business section the other day as an
elderly woman stepped from the en
trance of a store onto the sidewalk
almost directly in front of a youngs
ter speeding down street on a
bicycle. Remember, when riding on
sidewalks in the business section you
never know when someone is com­
ing onto the street from a store or
stairway entrance. Any bicycle rid
ing down town should be at a speed
that will permit stopping instantly.
Richland township’s vote on the
wheat allotment Saturday pretty
accurately reflects the views of this
section. Prevailing sentiment was
that the present setup bars the
smaller farmer from voting. Few
farmers with less than 100 acres can
qualify for voting under the present
regulations, say Richland township
agriculturalists.
Homegrown strawberries have
made their appearance on the mar
ket and catalpa trees are in bloom—
all of which means that summer is
on the threshold.
Alvin Whisler, of Oceanside, Cal.,
former Bluffton resident who was
visiting here the past week says
that production in the rapidly en
panding plant of Consolidated Air
craft in San Diego is rapidly as
suming huge proportions. Due to
the defense program, San Diego is
experiencing phenomenal growth and
the city is a scene of feverish ac
tivity. Housing accommodations are
totally inadequate to meet the de
mand and workers drive o and from
their jobs unbelieveably long dis
tances.

How President May Resign
A President or vice president of
the United States may resign by
signing a written statement of resig
nation and forwarding it to the state
department, not to the legislative or
judicial branch of the government,
This procedure is set forth in a
federal law adopted in 1792 and still
in effect. The law says in part: “A
resignation of the office of President
or vice president shall be an instru
ment in writing declaring the same
and delivered into the office
of the secretary of state.” No Pres
ident has ever resigned, but one
vice president has, John C. Calhoun,
of South Carolina. He quit the vice
presidency in 1832 to become a sen
ator.
