To Wilbur Fish, chairman of the
game supper, and his helpers much
credit must be given for the splendid
manner in which the bountiful repast
was managed and served.
Following the supper sound pictures

Prior to the election of officers held
later in the evening future plans of
the organization were discussed by the
directors. The organization has grown
by leaps and bounds the past few
years and is now recognized as one of
the aggressive conservation organiza
tions in the state.
The directors are seeking to make
a permanent place for the association
in the community and with this idea
in mind are interested in assisting
civic enterprises concerned with con
servation, especially with the program
to operate the Buckeye Park safely
and as a successful enterprise. The
club recommends the hiring of a com
petent manager at the quarry who will
supervise the swimming, fishing, and
other recereational facilities of the
The organization is interested in
constructing a memorial park at the
north end of the quarry in honor of
our fighting men in service. Plans
are underway to continue with this
construction next spring.
To create a better fanner-sports
men cooperation the directors approve
of plans to invite farm organizations
to select delegates who will serve as
directors of the Sportmen’s Club.. In
return, directors will be selected to
serve on a committee to attend open
meetings of farm organizations to dis
cuss problems relative to conservation
and game management.
Recommendations were made to ex
pend every effort to combat the pol
lution menace in local streams. Rec
ommendations were also made to have
a dam constructed adjacent to Har
mon Field near the college avenue
Additional recommendations were
made to obtain approval of farmers
to restock game irf areas devoid of
Many other recommendations were
made including equipping the club's
kitchen with a steam table and other
facilities continuation of the tree

ment urge the state to make every
effort to solve the quail problem and
allow organizations to restock this

Plans are underway under direction
of Russell Lantz to erect com shock

for several years and a stand of tall
grass covering the adjacent field
makes an ideal cover for wildlife. A
large flock of pheasants, estimated at
approximately 75 birds by observers
has been staying on the field since
early this fall.
The possibility of constructing feed

under club management has been un

feeding stations in these particular

third-quarter lead was 21 to 13.

Another formidable foe will pro
vide the opposition for Bluffton
High’s fourth cage assignment of
the year when an undefeated Ada
team meets the Pirates on the Bluff
von court this Friday night.
Their performance in opening
games of this season brands the
visitors as having one of the best
teams to represent Ada in years.
What is more Coach Clyde Lamb,
former Ohio Northern mentor, has
what appears to be a rarity in cage
A disastrous first-quarter start
meant defeat for Bluffton High cag
ers and they took a 57 to 40 beating
at the hands of Lima South last
Saturday night on the local court.
Except for the first period which
ended with the Pirates trailing 17
points, the locals matched their op
ponents’ attack point for point thru
out the game.
Bluffton got started in good form,
leading the opening minutes 4 to 2
and again 5 to 4, but the South
marksmen then went wild and rolled
22 points thru the hoops in the re
maining six minutes of the quarter
while Bluffton was getting only four.
It was more an even game the
rest of the way .however, with each
team garnering 10 points in the sec
ond quarter, and in the third period
South tallied 16 times and Bluffton
12. The visitors were able to score
only five points in the closing stanza,
while the Pirates added nine.
That the South team was unusual
ly “hot” in its appearance here is
seen in the fact that the visitors
made good on nearly fifty per cent
of their attempts from the field. Or
dinarily a 20 to 25 per cent average
is quite good
Three South players accounted for
the difference between the two teams,
with Bob and Fred Howard and
Roland Roush garnering 51 points
between them. Bob Howard had 24
points, and Fred Howard got 15.
For Bluffton, Cubie Basinger paced
the attack with 15 points to match
Fred Howard’s performance Ronald
