...for accepting with good nature the unusual
travel conditions of this past summer
Between July 1st and Labor Day, Great Lakes Greyhound buses carried
6,020,974 wartime travelers. For their good-natured acceptance of unusual
present-day travel conditions, we sincerely thank these travelers—as well as
all those people who postponed taking trips until the greatest rush was over.
Such cooperation made it possible for us to serve more soldiers and sailors
on leave than ever before, more war workers, more essential travelers of
every type. In addition, 15,000 selectees and enlisted reservists were trans
ported and 22,000 children taken to summer camps a job designated
as essential by government agencies.

A touchdown scored in the last
three minutes of play hroke a 12-12
tie and gave Ada High an 18 to 12
victory over a giai Bluffton eleven
last Friday night at Harmon field.
Friday’s game, the second of the
season for both outfits, was one of
the most thrilling seen here in many
a moon, with tw evenly matched
teams showing plenty of offensive
fireworks from th' opening whistle
until the closing gun.
Bluffton led once, the result of a
touchdown early in the first quarter,
saw Ada come back to tie the score,
and next go into the lead, before an
other Bluffton rally again knotted the
When the Ada safety man juggled
the ball on his own 12-yard line in the
first foru minutes of play, Bluffton
recovered and set stage for the initial
touchdown of the'game.
Scores On Pass
The score came on an across-the
field pass from Co-Captain Fred Her
mann which was snagged in the end
zone by End Neil Schmidt.
Ada then showed that it, too, had
offensive power when the Bull Dogs
marched 70 yards' to score, Herb An
spach racing 15 yards on a cutback
to tie the count, near the close of the
first quarter.
Bluffton threatened again twice in
the second quarter, but failed to
count. Once the Pirates marched to
the six yard stripe where a fumble
was recovered by Ada to stave off the
threat. At halftime, the locals again
were deep in Ada territory but the
gun cut short the march on Ada’s 16
yard line.
Anspach Again
In the meantime, the elusive An
spach had again crossed the goal on a
beautiful 32-yard run to give his team
a 12 to 6 advantage.
Both teams alternately dished it
out and took it during the third quar
ter, but with the opening of the fourth
stanza Bluffton finally got its offen
sive guns into action in earnest again.
A march of 60-odd yards carried
them to the Ada four-yard line from
where Co-Captain Bob Burkholder
smashed off tackle to tie the score at
Ada, however, bounced back to
stage a touchdown march of its own,
which for a few fleeting seconds look
ed as if it might be doomed.

conquest over Greenville, and Wapa

Last Friday’s whirlwind game be
tween Ada and Bluffton was high
lighted by as many thrills as any
played on the local field in several
seasons Both outfits had plenty
of offensive power,—and there was
dynamite in practically every play
Spectacular action every minute of
the playing time kept the stands in
an uproar, and interest was all the
keener due to the fact that the final
outcome was in doubt until the clos
ing three minutes when Ada punched
over the winning touchdown to cop
an 18 to 12 decision

It was a first down for the visitors
on Bluffton’s two-yard line. One play
netted only a yard, and on the next
the Ada ball carrier was spilled for a
six-yard loss.
The tricky Anspach was to again
play the villain however, for on the
third play he skirted his left end and
raced unmolested across the goal for
the touchdown that gave victory to
the visitors.
Last Friday’s win enabled the visi
tors to keep intact a victory string
that stretches over two seasons, but
Bluffton had the satisfaction of hav
ing played a game that could have
given the decision to them with a few
more breaks.

The principal concern of county

is hoped, will help to avoid a further
