Hohanos, the artist of this year’s
Christmas Seal, back to health and
a normal healthy life.
Out of his own poignant experience,
Mr. Dohanos conceived the light
house as the symbol of tuberculosis

way to safeiy.

I It was soon after he had begun to
show his work and had earned na
tional recognition that Dohanos,
muralist, illustrator, discovered that
he had tuberculosis. He had just
been asked to join an art studio in
York and was preparing to
move there from Cleveland, w’here he
had received his art education and
exhibited his paintings.
The temptation to risk regaining
his health while keeping up his work
was great. But Dohanos, guided by
the light of tuberculosis education,
made his decision. He went to
Saranac Lake, N. Y. and underwent
a period of treatment and complete
rest. It was not until he was able
again to do a normal amount of
work and enjoy normal activities in
moderation that he went to New
York. His job was still waiting for
Less than three years from that
time, Dohanos was chosen by the
Treasury Art Project in Washington

family with him and they enjoyed

men Create Problem
(Continued from page 1)
this year is the increasing number
of out-of-town sportsmen seeking to
hunt here and the greatly incieased
no hunting signs being posted on
various fields and wooded areas.
It has been reported that more
farmers and land owners than ever
before have been permitting hunting
on their premises only by special
permission. Some property owners
have been charging hunters a small
fee for the privilege of hunting on
Farmers have been taking the no
hunting stand in increasing propor
tions because of the destruction of
property and in some cases the
livestock. With livestock command-
ing premium prices farmers are spe
cially concerned lest the farm ani
mals be killed by stray bullets.
Soy Bean Fields
Also adding to the difficulty is the
large acreage of soy beans under
cultivation in area farms. This
makes excellent cover for the pheas
ants but at the same time with the
beans reaching a new high market
level, farmers resent hunters tramp
ing over their crops.
Many farmers, however, have been
willing to cooperate with local
sportsmen and give permission for
hunting. Much of the resentment of
local landowners is based on the
tendency of hunters coming from a
distance and then showing no con
cern for the rights of the property
Most hunters have reported that
the pheasants are much more numer
ous this year and that the birds are
fatter and cleaner than formerly.
On the other hand, a disgruntled few
said that they did not even see one
The weather left nothing to be de
sired and throughout the first of the
week the report of guns could be
heard in almost any part of the
town with the volley of shots con
tinuing until late afternoon.

Numerous hunters here profited by
the Saturday half holiday a number
of firms in Bluffton granted their
employes, and spent the day tramp
ing the countryside.
Much credit for the large amount
of game available in the Bluffton
district must be given to the Bluff
ton Community Sportsmen’s club
which has been engaged in a scien
tific restocking program during the
Rabbits, also, are plentiful this
year but the Bluffton hunters seem
to have gone afield more for the
pheasants than the bunnies. Part
ridges are about normal and grouse
are not to be found in the locality.
It has been pointed out, however,
that when the pheasants become less
numerous, the hunters will start for
the other game.
Hunting starts at 7:30 a. m. and
ends at 5 p. m. with this schedule in
effect until the close of the season.
The pheasant season will close No

extend until January 1.
