Lions Hold Eighth
Charter Night Dinner
Celebrating their eighth annual
charter anniversary, members of the
Bluffton Lions club were addressed
by Lions District Governor Hugh
Wayt of Mt. Vernon at a ladies
night meeting at the Walnut Grill
Tuesday night. Every civilization
has made a particular contribution
to the progress of mankind. The
Greeks gave us architecture and
athletics the Romans gave us a
system of law the Egyptians gave
the science of embalming to the
world, the speaker said.
The contribution of Americans will
go down in history as a way of liv
ing in which all men are given free
dom of choice and action and in
which the human personality is an
object of supreme worth, the district
governor pointed out.
In the attainment of this ideal,
Lionism has made an important con
tribution with its emphasis on ser
vice to the community and the de
velopment of civic mindedness, the
speaker said in conclusion.
Lions club representatives were
present from Lima, Findlay, Cold
water, Celina, Van Wert, Spencer
ville and Wapakoneta. Welcome to
the visiting clubs and guests was
extended in remarks by Mayor W.
The visiting clubs were introduced
by Tennyson Guyer of Findlay. Din
ner music was provided by the Four
Kings. Excerpts from the coming
Lions production, “Swing Out” were
presented as a part of the program.

THE HY-GRADE DAIRY
Calls Your Attention To The
Change of Delivery Policy
NO DELIVERY ON SUNDAY
is our one common end. Accordingly, Hy-Grade’s new
delivery policy enlists your co-operation in the conservation of
rubber tires, trucks, gasoline, glass bottles, etc.
Collections will be made as usual, but on the driver’s regular delivery
trip. Therefore only one trip will be necessary over the route each day.
On Saturday afternoons we will deliver a two-day supply (namely
Saturday and Sunday orders). Please order your Sunday supply on
Saturday when our route man delivers.
So the daylight delivery service may least inconvenience you, we
ask you to do your part by anticipating your dairy products needs in
advance, thereby permitting your milkman to serve you on his one trip

May Remove Bell At
Following complaint of residents
in the area surrounding the Cherry
street crossing of the Nickel Plate
railroad, the Bluffton council at the
Monday night meeting gave permis

The flashers will continue to op

watchman guards the crossing dur
ing the day time the removal of the
signal bell would not increase the
hazard, it was alleged.
Reason for the complaint of the
residents arises from continued ring
ing of the bell when freight cars
are being moved onto sidetracks dur
ing the night.
Fred Hofer, station agent for the
Nickel Plate, is taking the matter
up with the railroad officials. Their
approval would be necessary before
the removal of the bell could take
