ALLEN COUNTY
§100,000 Workshop
Plans Dropped
Plans for proposed $100,000 work
shop in Lima for the National Youth
Administration were dropped when
local officials received notice that
state officers are unwilling to wait
longer for the untangling of legal
complications. The workshop will be
built elsewhere, probably in this
vicinity, it was stated.
Pioneer’s Cabin To
Be Preserved
The Harpster cabin, believed to be
the oldest house in Allen county,
will soon become a permanent mon
ument.
The Allen County Archaelogical
and Historical society plans to move
the cabin into the city and recon
struct it next to a new museum that
will be started shortly.
The cabin was built in the early
1830’s by Jonathan Harpster, one
of the first white settlers in the
county.

blamed by patrolmen for the blaze.

County Agent Urges
More Hogs
Predicting that hog raising will
be a profitable enterprise through
out 1942, James H. Warner, county
agent, on Saturday urged Allen
county farmers to breed more sows
and gilts this fall.
Pointing out that Allen farmers
have been asked to raise 14 per cent
more hogs this year under the “Food
For Defense” program, Warner esti
mated the Allen county hog popula
tion at present as 75,000 head.
The county agent warned that if
farmers thruout the country fail to
produce more hogs, the nation may
be confronted with importing hogs
from Canada.

Employes of the Ohio Steel Found

Bookmobile Serves
Rural Readers
In 1941 the Allen county bookmo
bile which is a part of the Lima li
brary system traveled 4,651 miles
over the roads of Allen county to
bring books to men, women and
children. For every mile traveled
20 books were loaned to county
residents. Before the bookmobile
was put in operation those persons
in rural areas were at a distinct
disadvantage, for a desire for books
meant in many cases a trip of sev
eral miles.
