Delay In Starting Turbo-Generator Bluffton’s recently installed 1,250 KW turbo-generator will not be on the line at the municipal light plant until next week. The delay was caused when the services of the Westinghouse erect ing engineers were needed in a war industry in Detroit, Michigan, it was learned in a telephone conversation between company officials and John Swisher, light plant superintendent. The erecting engineer, Lester Smith, of Boston, will be at the Bluffton plant Monday morning to make the final check up on the oper ation of the recently installed equip ment. Also expected Monday is the com pany electrical engineer Mr. Schleigh of Cleveland who will synchronize the operation of the two turbines, one 750 KW and the other 1,250 KW at the plant here. Smith will turn on the steam and supervise the starting of the large turbo-generator. The 300 KW Skinner rotary en gine and generator are being loaded on a freight car at the plant siding ready to be shipped to one of the plants of the Pet Milk Co. Dismant ling operations were completed Tues day. When the 1,250 KW turbine is on the line the smaller unit will be opened for inspection by the insur ance company. Continuous operation of the smaller unit has made it im possible to have the required period ic inspections by insurance under writers, Swisher said.

Penny Store Findlay, Ohio Friday Last Day In Rubber Drive Collection of scrap rubber in the local campaign will end on Friday as Bluffton filling stations reported that a minimum amount has been coming into the collection depots in the past several days of the extended period. The,4nve was originally scheduled to end on June 30 but when the na tion wide total collection was less than anticipated President Roosevelt extended the campaign another 10 days. For the first few days in the ex tended period the rubber continued to flow in with several local stations reporting about 1,000 additional pounds. Most of the scrap rubber in Bluff ton is likely turned in, according to an opinion expressed by one of the local filling station proprietors. Local proprietors, however, have requested Bluffton residents to search for additional items and to have them turned in before Friday. The Bluffton drive has been very successful with the per capita aver age higher here than the national average of three pounds per person. Former Bluffton Boy Is Lieut.
