To Discontinue Auto Stamp Sale Locally Friday will be the last day that Bluffton motorists can purchase the federal $5 auto use tax stamps at the local post office. Commencing Saturday all local post offices will discontinue the sale of the stamps and any person desir ing a stamp will be required to pur chase the same from the Collector of Internal Revenue at Toledo. Investigation by the department shows that most persons subject to the tax have complied with the law by purchasing the stamp and affix ing it to the windshield. Federal authorities are checking much more carefully this time and applying penalties where the law has been disregarded. Any persons operating a motor vehicle, which includes passenger automobiles, trucks and motorcycles on a public highway without use of the stamp affixed thereto is subject on conviction to a penalty of $25 and/or 30 days in prison, for fail ure to purchase the stamp and have it affixed to the vehicle. Persons having such stamps prop ertly affixed should make a notation of the serial number on the stamp. The office of internal revenue has given notice that violations of the law will be vigorously treated. 1-B Draftees To Be Inducted In August Allen county’s three draft boards next month will induct their first 1-B men—selectees with physical de fects, who will be acceptable for limited military service.

Roger Howe Is City Tennis Champion Winning three out of five sets in closely fought matches, Roger Howe, son of Mayor and Mrs. W. A. Howe, wrested the city tennis championship from Woodrow Little, 1941 champ, in the town tennis tournament finals played at the city courts Sunday and Tuesday nights. The finalists were rained out of the championship match Sunday afternoon in the fourth set when the score stood at four all. In the first set the 1941 Bluffton champion won quickly at 6-1 and the second at 6-4. In the third set, Howe was hit ting a faster pace and won the set 6-1. When the rain forced the post ponement of the match in the fourth set it was decided to continue on Tuesday evening when Howe won 6-1 and 9-7 to cop the men’s city championship. Only 17 years of age, Howe is probably the youngest title holder in the history of local tennis competi tion. Howe won his way to the finals by defeating Arthur Amstutz, 6-0, 6-3 Norman Beidler 6-2, 6-2, and Sidney Stettler, 6-0, 6-2. Airing Woolens Is Guard Against Moths ‘'Make ’em last” is a slogan you hear often these days. Nobody needs to tell you that wool clothes are far too valuable to make meals for clothes moths. But, just the same, many a moth is happily feeding on good clothes at this very moment. Those wool socks your husband wore once and then shoved back in the dresser drawer that forgotten sweater tucked away undisturbed somewhere—the winter suit or coat still hanging in the darkness of the closet—these are on the menu for the moth. Better make a check and gather up those wool articles. Take them out doors for a sunning, airing and brushing. Sunshine, and air, and brushing are cheap and effective pro tection against moths. Moths can’t stand bright sun. The little moth worms drop to the ground from clothing left hanging on the line in the sun, especially if they can’t crawl into folds of the fabric to find protection from the sun rays. Take care to brush out seams and pockets carefully to be sure no moths are hiding there. If you can’t pack all your wools away in moth flakes for the summer if you have to leave wool clothes out—then at least air, brush and sun them often and keep them clean. Moths prefer soiled wool, you know. They dearly love to nibble on a grease spot or a soiled collar. And a few nibbles can mean a big loss. Have you aired your wool cloth ing lately? If not, this is a good to do it. Elrose Jimmie Gallant of Marion spent Saturday and Sunday with Robert Koontz. Russell Elzay and family, Earl Hamilton and family spent Sunday evening at the P. J.
