TROOP 56—By Robert Stratton The troop will hold an ice cream social this Wednesday night on Church street between the Methodist and Mennonite churches. Scouts have been selling tickets in advance of the event. Malcolm Basinger and Gene Pat terson passed second class pacing at the scout meeting Monday night. Entertainment for the ice cream social will be furnished by the Cobra, Eagle and Flying Eagle patrols. TROOP 82—By David Stearns The troop meeting was held in the town hall Monday night. Fred Herr of the radio club drilled the scouts in code practice. More plans were made for the summer camp. The troop leaves Sunday, July 5, for Camp Defiance. Plans were also made to collect rubber Saturday. The entire troop was in uniform at the Monday meeting. A game of swat tag was enjoyed by everyone. The meeting was closed with the troop singing Amer ica. Bugler Harry Burkholder played taps. XsA:,s W'omen To Save Iron For Tomorrow The old advertising query, “Have you had your iron today”, should be changed to, “Will you have your iron tomorrow”, is the suggestion made by Velma G. Uhrig, Portage county home agent, who is talking about irons for laundry work rather than about iron for a tonic. Mrs. Uhrig is most emphatic about leaving electric irons with the cur rent turned on while the homemaker answers the telephone or goes to some other part of the house and is delayed. The two minutes that would be required to reheat an iron may be saved at the cost of a fire in the home or of a bad accident to a child who pulls down a hot iron while the mother is busy elsewhere. Irons not equipped with a therm ostat to control the degree of heat may be damaged by overheating. Many homemakers use irons from •which the plating on the bottom has been roughened or destroyed by too much heat. Outlets for attaching the iron should be above the ironing board to save energy in dragging the cord back and forth and to protect the cord from wear. Light sockets and drop cords usually carry too little current to heat an iron correctly and the cool iron makes the work harder. The worst treatment that an iron can get is to permit it to overheat and then plunge it in water. Water will ruin the heating element even in a cold iron and the damage is much greater if the iron is hot when immersed. Irons are damaged frequently by dropping them which may break connections inside, damage the ther mostate, or scratch or nick the sole plate. Placing the iron on a slippery surface or using the iron with the cord stretched where people pass are the two commonest methods of get ting the iron ready for a fall. Irons stored in the range oven sooner or later become casualties when someone lights the oven with out removing the iron. The best storage place is a clean, dry spot protected from dust and out of reach of people search for something else. The iron should be waxed once a month with beeswax or paraffin and the excess wax wiped off with soft paper or cloth. One dairy company put rubber tires on horse-drawn delivery wagons and uses wooden tires on motor trucks. The wooden tires are a series of blocks bolted to the rims, and when these tires pick up nails or glass their wearing qualities are improved. The tires are said to be good for from 8,000 to 10,000 miles. MUNSON R. BIXEL, M. D. Office Hours: 8:30-10 A. M. 1-3 P. M. 7-8 P. M. Office. 118 Cherry St. Phone 120-F Bluffton. O.

Ohio flmonc Ohio’s Ft. Recovery as reconstructed, Ft. Recovery. GENERAL ANTHONY WAYNE (1745-1796) “Should war be their choice, the blood will be upon their own heads. America should no longer be insulted with impunity.” So wrote the “Chief Who Never Sleeps,” “Mad” Anthony Wayne to the Secretary of War of the United States in 1794. Wayne, the personal choice of President Washington, and his army were at Fort Defiance. The Indians were given a last oppor tunity to lay down their arms. Western Ohio, Washington had decreed, must be subdued, and the lands of Ohio and western states made safe for white settlers. Wayne, like Washington, had been a surveyor. Like Washing ton. he had served with distinc tion through the Revolution. Now the West must be conquered. St. Clair had been defeated in Ohio. Wayne was to repair the disaster. With great skill “Mad” Anthony developed the army destined to wave Ohio. For two years men .'rum the settlements and forests trained in Indian warfare. In the summer of 1794 General Wayne advanced. Forts were built, supply lines protected. At the scene of St. Clair’s catastrophe 600 skulls were buried. On August 20 Wayne struck.

Thursday’s Game The South Side Alligators won their fourth game of the season by defeat ing the North Side Polar Bears, 23-11. The Polar Bears did some heavy hit ting, but the Alligators were more consistent, with Mike Reagan getting 4 hits. Hubert Basinger got 2 round trippers and Harry Klay hit his th’rd of the season for the North Side. Bob Bixel started the slugfest by hammer ing the first slant off Hubert Basinger into left field for a home run. Ba singer was the losing pitcher and Ray Crouse hung on long enough to win his first hurling assignment. Friday’s Game The Polar Bears climbed to within one game of the leading South Side Alligators by defeating the South Side 17-11. Harry Klay’s triple in the 4th inning started the Bears on a hitting spree. Robert Wilch, Evan Herr and Hubert Basinger each con tributed a double to the attack on Wilson Boutwell, who lost his second game of the season. Harry Klay got credit for his second hurling victory. Dean Niswander hit a triple to deep center field for the losing Alligators in the 5th inning. Monday’s Game A seven run rally off Kenny Bracy and Elmer Stonehill in the 5th inning enabled the Bears to go into a tie for first place in the Junior League. The seven runs helped Harry Klay gain his third decision of the year, but they led to Bracy’s first defeat. The North Side downed the Alligators 16 10. The South Side got to Klay, Charles Stonehill, and Norman Redick for the low total of seven hits one a home run by Cappy Clark, and anoth er a triple by Bracy. Charles Stone hill banged out a triple and double out of three trips to the plate, and Hubert Basinger got two doubles.

Corn Husking County and sectional com husking championships have been held for many years, but the first national tournament was instituted in 1924 by Henry Wallace, editor of Wallace’s Farmer. It has been stated that during the next six months the army alone will buy 1612 million pairs of shoes. Hides and skins for shoes that used to come from India and Europe are out. Home production hides grows but there is still only ne conclusion the consumer can cnie to: People at home must go easy on their own shoes so the armed fc ces can have shoes. So we as consumers can remember these things: 1. Be sure to buy properly fitted shoes as they need no breaking-in. 2. After buying the proper shoes, take good care of them. In caring for shoes remember the nature of leather—water stiffens it by taking out the oil. 3. Shoes that ave become wet should be stuffed with paper, rub bed lightly with castor oil and al lowed to stand in room temperature for 12 to 24 hours to dry. Polish when dry.

Shoe trees which conform to the shape of the shoe will keep them trim, but other types may be un desirable. 5. Repair heels as soon as they be come worn or crooked. 6. Two pairs of shoes, one for walking and one for dress will give more than twice as much wear and comfort as one pair of shoes worn on all occasions. 7. Heavy shoes for farming or fac tory work need plenty of greasing to mke them waterproof. Neat’s foot oil is good for this purpose. Castor oil, tallow, wool grease or a mixture of these may be used. There probably will be fewer and more sensible shoe styles this fall. So after buying the proper shoe let’s take good care of them. Easier to Conceal It is easier to conceal a factory or an airport if it consists of several small, scattered units rather than of one large unit. Where covering is used, it should be of the same texture qs the building's surround ings. Textures show up at great heights colors do not. Roof cov erings which cast irregular shadows are more desirable than those whose shadows are symmetrical.
