Bluffton High School Alumni And
Varsity To Clash On November 11
For the first time in more than a
decade a Bluffton High school alumni
association football team and the
high school varsity will meet in a
grid encounter to be played at Har
mon field Wednesday night, Armis
tice Day, November 11.
The game will be sponsored by the
Lions club and the proceeds will go
to community welfare. A committee
of club members is working .on a
case now to determine its suitability
for the disposition of the funds.
Paul Detwiler will be coach and
Bluffton High To Play At St. Marys
College Meets Northern At Kenton
Bluffton High and Bluffton Col
lege grid teams will play away from
home this week, the occasion mark
ing the first week since the opening
of the season that there has been no
contest scheduled at Harmon field.
Another Western Buckeye league
foe will be faced by Coach George
Swank’s Pirates at St. Marys, Fri
day night, and a victory for the lo
cals will give them a 50-50 break so
far this season.
Bluffton college’s test will be a se
vere one in a night game against
Ohio Northeim university, at Kenton,
also on Friday. The contest will be
played in the Kenton High stadium,
and will mark the first time either
of the collegiate outfits have appear
ed in that city.
According to a rigid application
of pre-game dope, St. Marys High
'should best Bluffton by two points
this week when the two teams meet
at St. Marys, but the Pirates are
going thru practice this week se
cure in the determination that the
advantage will be all theirs when
the final gun sounds ... St. Marys
two weeks ago beat Celina by one
point, and last week the Bull Dogs
turned back Bluffton 13 to 12
All in all, it should be a good game,
one of the best of the season, and
Bluffton is hoping to break their
two-game losing streak.
Altho beaten by four touchdowns,
Bluffton college’s plucky gridders
completely outshone Findlay in one
department in the game there last
Friday ... On nine completed for
ward passes, the Beavers picked up
106 yards, and at the same time
their defense kept the Oilers from
completing a single aerial attempt
Otherwise, however, the Beavers
found themselves outclassed, for
they gained only 11 net yards by
rushing, and Findlay piled up a
total of 379.

Democratic Candidate for
4th District of Ohio
Election. Nov. 3, 1942
Miller has been an outstanding
lawyer for 29 years. He has
unusual experience and ability
to represent this District in
Congress with distinction. His
opponent, the present congress­
man, who is running for a THIRD term, has been absent from
Congress an unreasonable and inexcusable number of times. Miller
pledges that, if elected, he will NOT he absent from this important
position but will diligently attend ALL sessions and be present at
all roll calls that he will sincerely look after the interests of ALL
the people and not be controlled by but two people from this district
and that he will promptly and fully answer all letters received by
him. We truly need a man like Miller to represent us in these
crucial times. He is familiar with the problems of the people and
will serve in a manner helpful to the District and Nation. He be
lieves that Congress should buckle down to its job, see that the war
is won as quickly as possible and that the small business man and
the farmer be given immediate and proper consideration. Miller is
endorsed by labor, agriculture and business.

Water dripping through the roof
and standing several inches deep in
the hails and recitation rooms of the
new high school building damaged
the structure to the amount of
$2,000 Monday night. Owing to the
fact that the conducting pipes which
carry the water from the roof were
filled with snow and ice there was
no way of draining the flat roof and
the water forced its way through
the gravel roofing. When discover-
ed by Janitor Stauffer
morning many of the
rooms on the first and second floors
were flooded and sections of plaster
had fallen to the floor.
