Allen County Business
Good
A survey by the Association of

showing sharp declines. Conclusions
were based upon comparison of sales

compared to $187,060.86 for the
responding 1941 period.
In the Lima area, Hancock county
has receipts of $79,314 for 1942
against $78,140 a year ago.
Tax Payments Are
Good
During last week when $4,626.85
was collected in real estate taxes
for the last half of 1941, the total
already is swelled to $22,405.56, Ray
W. Barnett, Allen county treasurer,
said Saturday.
Sales tax receipts in the county
during the week reached a new peak
when $7,935.21 was taken in.
The current collection of classified
taxes had reached $50,364.96 while
in personal property it was at $77,
069.99. Last week $567.99 was taken

TO THE tEOPLS OF a110’
This week a new campaign for the Mie of Whr Bonds and Savings
Stamps Is under way throughout the Nation. It is the War Bond Quota
Campaign.
It is urgently necessary that you double the rate at Which you
are now buying War Bonds and Stamps This will mean the sale direct
to individual Americans of Ikr Bonds and Stamps to the amount of not
lees than one billion dollars every month.
One billion dollars a month is the National quota. It is equal
to one-ter.th the combined incomes of all Americans.
oney is needed to buy the tools of war for your fighting
forces. It will not pay for all of them. Qir war expenditures now
are at the rate of about FOUR BILLIONS a month, and they are growing
daily. But a btllion dollars a month direct from the people will
make all-out production possible. Without it we cannot do our best
without it we cannot put forth our full effort.
It is desperately needed for another reason. We can't fight a
war and at the sane time live and spend as usual. There are not enough
goods to go around the things we buy with money. If we go on spend
ing at the 1941 scale, we'll be robbing the fighting man to add to our
own comfort or pleasure. We'll be driving up ths cost of living for
all of us. We’ll be imposing dire hardships on our neighbors.

No Post-War
Depression
of
Dr. H. Gordon Hayes, professor
economics in Ohio State University,
left a cheering message with 150
bankers of the Kenton area who met
in Ada Thursday for the annual
Group 2 conference of banking prob
lems.
Dr. Hayes told his listeners that
there wall be no post-war depression,
that the present lack of opportunity
to buy durable goods, together with
a tremendous savings in war bonds,
will cushion the economic shock of
the war’s close and send the nation’s
factories rumbling into new activity
to fulfill the demand for civilian ar
ticles.
The gigantic war machine also
will be kept in operation for polic
ing duty for at least six months
after peace comes and then the sol
diers gradually will be returned to
civilian life, he predicted.
PUTNAM COUNTY
Cows Equal With
Outos In Rights
Deciding the case of Albert Morris
against Walter Beisheim, Judge A.
A. Slaybaugh of Putnam county
common pleas court Tuesday ruled
that in most instances livestock be
ing driven on or across public high
ways must be given the same con
sideration as humans or vehicles.
Morris sought damages as a result
of an accident on the Ridge road
near Belmore Nov. 11, 1941, at 6:40
a. m. which occurred when Morris’
car figured in a collision with a cow
owned by Beisheim. The defendant
filed a cross petition asking damage
for his cow.
Judge Slaybaugh dismissed both
the plaintiff’s petition and the de
fendant’s cross petition on the ground
that this was “an unavoidable acci
dent”.
He declared in his decision that a
“person propelling an automobile
must consider the hazards attendant
upon approaching animals”.
No REA Extensions
Permitted
No extension beyond 250 feet may
be made by the Putnam-Paulding
Rural Electrification Cooperative as
sociation.
This was pointed out by Homer
Prowant, Putnam county director on
the cooperative board, after he had
received several requests for exten
sions beyond 250 feet. He explained
that the federal government has
limited the extensions because of pri
orities on materials used in the erec
tion of power lines.
Street Commissioner
Quits After 37 Years
After serving for 37 years, Henry
Heringhaus has resigned as street
commissioner of Ottawa.
This was announced after Hering
haus submitted his resignation to the
village council at its regular meet
ing. The commissioner was forced
to retire to comply with the regula
tions of the state public employes’
retirement fund.
Every effort was made by the
council to obtain at least temporary
waiving of this rule, but it could
not be obtained.
