Finding the scoring spark after
dominating play for three quarters
but being unable to cross the payoff
stripe, Bluffton High gridders ham
mered two touchdowns across th®
goal in the last period to defeat Co
lumbus Grove, 12 to 0, in a game
under the lights at Harmon field
last Friday night.
Lanky Fred Herrmann, sophomore
fullback, plunged thru the line for
both tallies, after his bullseye, .pass
ing had set the 'iouchdapn stage

A t^ng of^Wdst in the morning
air, leaves turning from' grt,m*r“tb‘
brown, days that end all too quickly
and the thud of footballs at Harrton
stadiurrj and College field all serve
as reminders that another football
season is well under way Bluff
ton High’s aggressive team got its
first test of the season in defeating
Columbus Grove, 12 to 0, last week,
and this Friday finds the Pirates

see action Friday, meeting Mt,

The shape of things to come in
the Western Buckeye league can
somewhat roughly be determined as
the result of last week’s play
Bluffton, Celina, Bellefontaine and
Van Wert all were victorious
Van Wert, defending champion,
whose record was marred last year
only by a tie with Bluffton, edged
Bryan, 13 to 6 Bellefontaine

Bluffton High Finds Scoring Punch In
Last Quarter To Beat Grove, 12-0
ekch time.
In the first half the light, but ag
gressive, Bluffton team held the edge
in ground gained, but inexperience
and a little too much eagerness made
it impossible for them to put to
gether any sustained drive that
might result in scoring.
It was a different story in the last
two periods, however, and after
pushing the heavier Columbus Grove
outfit all over the field in the third
stanza, the Pirates finally broke into
beating at the hands of Sidney.
Onjy two J’utnam, cpuntyf schools
are playiqg football thifc year,
Leipsic having disbanded itp eleven
for the duration of the war
Columbus Grove and Pandora are
the only .teams putting elevens on
the field Grove lost to Bluffton
in its opening game, and Pandora
was defeated by Shawnee, 6 to 0.
Arlington High, coached by Jim
Morrison, who left Mt. Cory after
several successful seasons, opened
its year with an auspicious 27 to 0
victory over Upper Sandusky
Findlay led for two quarters but
was bested by Columbus Aquinas,
7 to 6, when the visitors tallied in
the last period.
Coach Burcky of the Beavers will
start three Bluffton boys in the line
up against Mt. Union at Alliance
Friday night. Slated are Dick
Wenger at quarter and Norman
Beidler and Paul Klassen at half
back positions. Lyle Sommers of
Pandora will also get the nod to
start at fullback.

the scoring column in the closing
period with two touchdowns.
In setting the’ stage For the first
tally, Fred Herrmann tossed passes
to Weldon Deppler and Neil Schmidt
for gains that took the oval deep
into enemy territory. Then Herr
mann lugged the ball across the goal
in a sledge-hammer thrust through
the Grove line.
A few minutes later Herrmann’s
accurate passing again paid divi
dends. A 25-yard toss to Halfback
Zimmerly put the ball in scoring po
sition for the second time, and Herr
mann again drove over the goal.
Two placement kicks in the try
for the extra points were blocked.
Columbus Grove made only one
scoring threat, and that came in the
last half when Hilty picked up a
fumbled ball and raced to the Bluff
ton 25-yard line before he was haule
down from behind. ^Bluffton’s de
fense tightened1 heroically, however,
and the Pirates took over at that
Altho light and made up for the
most part of players seeing their
first year as regulars, the Bluffton
team played aggressive, heads-up
football in their opening start. In
their aerial attack, the Pirates were
particularly adept, with Fred Herr
mann’s accurate tossing easily the
standout feature of the game.

issue, it was indicated at a meeting
of the town council Monday night
when the matter was laid before
that body by Solicitor Durbin and
Mayor W. A. Howe.
When the suit was filed last
September Locher and Huber indi
cated to the town council that they
had instituted court action as a last
resort to deal with the evils of
stream pollution because there was
nothing being done by the munici
pality to afford relief.
They. reaffirmed that unless some
thing was done by the town to effect
relief, court action would proceed.
When asked what steps they would
consider adequate, the landowners
replied that they were interested
only in elimination of the present
stream pollution and measures to be
employed were for the town to de
Have Plans
The mayor had communication
with the engineering firm of
Champe, Finkbeiner & Associates of
Toledo which drafted plans for a
proposed sewer system here two
years previous. The proposal to
issue bonds for the project, sub
mitted to a popular vote lost at
that time by a small margin.
Altho voted down at the election
here in 1939, the project is still on
file in the Toledo office of the WPA,
the Mayor stated. Also available
for preliminary estimates would be
plans which were drafted by the
engineering firm at that time.
With WPA activities considerably
curtailed because of war activities
and construction materials made
unavailable because of war demands
it is unlikely that work on construc
tion of a sewage disposal system
could be started for the duration of
the war, it was stated.
Cost of a complete sewer system
as voted on in 1939 under WPA aid
setup was estimated by engineers at
$400,000. Of this amount the
municipality was to finance one
fourth, or $100,000. The latter
amount was planned to be raised by
$80,000 in- general obligation bonds
and $20,000 in sewage revenue bonds.
Cost of the system if installed
under private contract, without
federal aid was estimated at that
time at $250,000. Under this latter
plan there would have been no
federal WPA grant and the entire
cost would then have beeh met by
the town.
It was not indicated at the Mon
day night meeting as to what legal
action would be taken after the de
positions are filed.

Beavers To Tackle
Mt. Union Friday
Bluffton college gridders will get
their first test of the 1942 season
this Friday when they travel to Al
liance for a contest with Mt. Union’s
formidable Ohio conference outfit,
The Beavers will go into the con
test with only 10 days practice be
hind them, and. Coach A. C. Burcky
has been working his -squad rigor
ously in preparation for the assign
Starting lineup for the Beavers
will be:
Kerr, left end Fretz, left tackle
Paul Soldner, left guard Simcox,
center Hugus, right guard Martin,
right tackle Fred Soldner, right
end Wenger, quarter Beidler, left
half Klassen, right half Sommers,
Altho little is known of the
strength of this year’s Mt. Union
team, it is a foregone conclusion that
the larger enrollment of the Ohio
conference school will permit it to
put a heavier, more experienced out
fit on the field.
Experience is at a premium on
the Bluffton team, with only six let
termen in uniform. Coach Burcky
has Wenger, Hugus and Sommers as
backfield men and on the line are
Fretz, Soldner and Kerr. Martin
and Simcox, reserves from last year,
give promise of helping to plug gaps
in the line.
Of the squad of 24 working out
under Coach Burcky about half are
freshmen, some of whom will get an
opportunity to show their merit in
the game at Alliance.
Following the game with Mt. Un
ion this Friday, the Beavers will
tangle with Kenyon at Gambier next
week, then make their first home
appearance of the season against
Capital here on October 10.
