council at the next regular meeting
on findings.
The council is also investigating
the possibility of purchase of an ad
ditional fire truck. Pictures of num
erous centrifugal pump equipped
trucks were examined by members of
the council Monday night in antici
pation of possible developments here.
The matter of additional equipment
was brought to a head several months
ago when fire underwriters in nearby
communities forced insurance rates
up after the existing equipment was
rated inadequate for the community
and surrounding territory’.
Hazard Exists
The problem is created by the fact
that when the local fire fighting
equipment is called out of town a dis
tinct hazard within the corporation
is presented should the equipment be
needed in the municipality.
Faced with the alternative of eith
er purchasing a new fire truck or es
tablishing a policy of discontinuing
runs of the present fire truck outside
of the corporation limits, the town
council and township trustees have
been investigating the matter for sev
eral months.
Sentiment in favor of joint town
ship and town action on the matter is
reported to be very prevalent in
Orange and Richland townships. It
was reported at the meeting Monday
night that the state law allows town
ship trustees to purchase necessary
fire figthing equipment without bring
ing the matter to a vote in the town
Additional Levy-
An additional levy imposed by the
trustees would be legal. The action
would not be without precedent, it
was stated by Mayor W. A. Howe,
who pointed out that a number of
other communities with a need for
rural fire protection have taken joint
action on the matter.
Several members of the council ex
pressed sentiment for taking action
on the purchase of needed additional
fire hose due to the fact that delivery
cannot be guaranteed for at least 91)
days after the placement of the order.
The fire department now has about
1,000 feet of hose in good condition,
Fire Chief Guy Corson stated at the
Developments since the first of

Started in 1923
The idea of b’ tring college stu
dents to the For actory had its in
ception in 1923 when Dr. Jerome
Davis, then prof of social ethics
at the Yale Divin school, called on
Fred M. Searle, superintendent of the
Ford Trade scho Davis suggested
that a group of e students be per
mitted to work at the Ford plant for
the purpose of ng an unbiased
study of labor conditions.
His idea was the students
w-ork side by with the Ford
workers, living v. the workers and
receiving the pay an apprentice
workman. Searle was interested, and
the interview with Henry Ford result
ed. Davis told Ford that he wanted
the Yale Divinity students to come to
the Ford plant so would gain in
sight into industry so that when they
get into the pulpi they won’t tell so
many lies. Ford consented.
From the first small group in 1923,
the group expand, year after year
from all types o: ’eges and semin
aries, until the wu.ting list became
longer and longer and applicants
wore accepted 01 n the recommen
dation of the dea or other adminis
trative officers.
The wages tl students earn, in
most cases, pay expenses of the
ensuing collegt year. More than
that it gives the student an oppor
tunity’ to study the human factor in
large scale factory production.
The students work under the gen
eral supervi-, ti of Searle and are
registered for the summer work in
the Ford Tra.ie schoo l.After passing
through vari fundamental depart
ments in the actory as an actual
worker “on tl line” each student is
allowed to th -h the summer in the
particular department that is of
most interest to him. This is usual
ly’ guided by the student’s main in
terest in college such as engineering,
chemistry, economics or sociology.
Huge Laboratory-
In all the various college subjects
the plants of the Ford Motor Co. are
in reality a huge laboratory’. Its
manufacture of by-products such as
benzol and coke is of interest to the
chemistry student. Its cement plant
interests the civil engineer. The
young electrical engineer will gain
valuable experience in the power
Future executives gain important
knowledge fur plant management.
Divinity and sociology students in the
summer making contact with the
workingman gain valuable insight in
to problems of human nature. It
may be assured that most of the
young men return to their respective
schools with a clearer understanding
of the relationship of employer and
employee and of the manifold prob
lems of modern industrialism.
Students from Bluffton college have
been given the opportunity of sum
mer employment ever since 1938 when
Wilford Geiger and Orden Smucker,
Bluffton High school instructors were
employed at the plant for the sum

Social Security Law
There is no provision under the
social security act for the payment
of a supplementary benefit in be
half of the husband of a retired fe
male worker. In other words, the
insured wife of an uninsured man
may receive only the retirement
benefit to which she is entitled in
her own right, with no supplementa
ry benefit as in the case of an in
sured man with an uninsured wife.
This is one of the apparent incon
sistencies of the existing law.
Old Spanish Coin
Found On Farm
(Continued from page 1)
from 1759 to 1788 and the coin was
apparently minted in this period.
Charles was not only king of Spain
but also of the West Indes, as the
reverse side indicates.
First Minting
It is a known historical fact that
there was no American money before
1790 when the first minting order was
issued. Therefore, it was necessary
for the colonists and pioneers moving
westward to use the moneys of other
At that time tsis country was trad
ing chiefly with the West Indes and
Spain and naturally a considerable
amount of Spanish money was used
here as the medium of exchange.
Quite a bit of English money was in
circulation also but it was predomi
nantly Spanish.
Very likely the coin found by Dud
geon was lost by an American colon
ial trader between 1775 and 1790. It
was thought at first that the coin was
lost by a Spanish explorer going thru
this area. In view of the fact that
no explorations were being made by
Spain in this country’ at that time,
that explanation would be unlikely.
Spain did most of her colonizing at
the time of Columbus, at which time
she claimed the West Indes. In the
Spanish-American War of 1898 the
United States took over certain of
the islands in the West Indes at that
Fly Control Helps Keep
Up Production Of Milk
Fly control around dairy cattle as
a .means of keeping up milk produc
tion is well worth while, but C. L.
Blackman, extension dairy' special
ist, Ohio State University, thinks
that fly prevention is better. Fewer
flies mean more milk produced for
defense foods, and one of the best
controls is removal of their breeding
places, such as manure and old
straw pile*
Sprays are necessary during fly
season as a control measure.
Kerosene extract of pyrethrum is
‘often recommended since it kills the
flies. The air in the dairy barn
should be sprayed, rather than the
tattle, as many sprays will burn the
cows if too much is used on them.
It is not usually practical to try
to screen dairy barns, Blackman
says. He adds, though, that thous
ands of flies can be caught in home
made fly’ traps. Instructions for
building efficient fly traps are avail
able from county agricultural
There are usually three kinds of
flies around dairies—the housefly,
i the stablefly’ or stock fly, and the
horn fly. The housefly’ does not
bite animals but it does annoy them,
and it contaminates dairy products
and spreads bacteria. The stable
fly resembles the housefly, but has a
long piercing beak used in sucking
blood of cattle. Its bite is painful.
The horn fly is the smallest of the
three, and is a similar annoyance.
It stays on cattle continuously, fly
ing from one part of the animal to
another when disturbed.
Wheat Loans Assurer
Here Under AAA Plan
A wheat loan of $1.07 a bushel is
assured Allen county farmers who
have met acreage requirements un
der the AAA farm program, follow
ing approval of marketing quotas
recently by more than 80 per cent
of the nation’s wheat growers, Clair
A. Patterson, AAA chairman for
Allen county, announced today.
In addition, farmers who overseed
allotments will be eligible for loans
at 60 per cent of the cooperator’s
rate on wheat produced on their ex
cess acreage.
The loans are callable on demand
and wall be offered to farmers up to
December 31, 1941. Loans fall due
on April 30, 1942 at 3 per cent in
“With farm loan values averaging
$1.07 a bushel for Ohio, and with
1941 wheat parity and conservation
payments, the program cooperator
w’ill receive a total return approxi
mately equal to the parity price”,
Mr. Patterson said. “In other words,
wheat farmers this year are going
to reach their goal of parity for the
first time since the farm depression

Parasite Prevention Is
Better Than Treatment
“Too many poultry farmers wait
until their birds are loaded up with
parasites and then they rely’ on
This is the accusation made by C.
M. Ferguson, extension poultry
specialist, Ohio State University.
He adds, of course, that treatment
has a place in any poultry program,
but “hammers” hard on the idea
that treatment is much less import
ant than a sound program of pre
vention of disease and parasite in
As he says, growing chicks must
pick up worm eggs if they’ are go
ing to become loaded with parasites.
There is just one place these eggs
come from and that is soil or litter
which has been contaminated by
older birds infested with parasites.
In this connection, Ferguson con
tinues to stress, as he has since
early spring, that a combined pas
ture program with range rotation is
one of the surest preventive mea
sures against worm infestation in
this year’s pullets.
Mentioning quality egg production
during the summer months, the ex
