The promotion includes the hiring of a full time manager who will be in complete charge of the swimming facilities and picnic grounds around the quarry’. Contained in the proposal are plans for the complete repair of the bath house and floating beaches. Benches and tables are to be painted and a shelter house erected for the benefit of the public. Sanitation is to be stressed and plans include frequent cleaning of the premises. Work on the program will start as soon as possible this spring and a con tractor has already looked over the set up and is presenting plans for the repair program. The promotion is the result of the action of a committee appointed last fall to size up the situation at the quarry. The committee is made up of members of the Bluffton Commun ity Sportsmen’s club, Lions club and town council. To promote community interest in its development, formation of a new organization, the Buckeye Park As sociation, is planned. This organi zation will sponsor developement of the Buckeye as a public recreation spot and membership will be open to every resident of the community. Dues will be nominal. Initial plans call for the construc tion of parking lots at both ends of the quarry, addition of playground equipment to the grounds, employing of sufficient life guards for complete protection of swimmers, erection of tables, benches, oVens and shelter houses, and construction of picnic TH£ QUALITY FHD YOU NIED FOB YOU* CHICKS A well balanced radoo you chicks ...

Plans also call for swimming instruc tion classes for beginners. As an added attraction to the park site the Sportsmen’s club has been steadily developing the fishing facil ities at the quarry’ and for two years a heavy restocking program has been carried out as a benefit to local ang lers. The work at the north end of the quarry to construct a serviceman’s park has already been in operation since last fall and the Sportsmen’s club has appropriated $200 for this promotion. The Bluffton Saddle club has be come interested in prospects for the park and plans are under considera tion by that organization to establish headquarters for their association in a space located near the new park under construction at the north end of the quarry. The Central Ohio Light and Power Co. has expressed a willingness to extend the lease on the Buckeye quarry’ to a ten year period with privilege given the town coun cil for an automatic renewal. Members of the committee repre senting the organizations and council are A. E. Kohli, Chairman Armin Hauenstein, Albert Garmatter, Ray Mumma, Wilbur Fish, C. H. Smith, Mayor Howe, Gordon Bixel, Leon Hauenstein, Cloyce Bame, Wilford Geiger, Charles Aukerman and Eu gene Benroth. Empty Drums Needed The town is urgently in need of approximately 50 empty steel oil drums to be used for repair of the floating beach at the Buckey’e quar ry. These drums have practically disappeared from the open market and it is absolutely essential for the citizens of the town and farmers to aid the council in procuring sufficient number of drums at once to make the necessary repairs. If you have a drum available, please contact Aldine Kohli, Mayor Howe, or Armin Hau enstein immediately. These drums must be procured before a contractor can fully estimate'the much needed repairs for the floating beach. Fox Called Vermin in Bill up Before House Committee Southern Ohio fox hunters and northeastern Ohio farmers have very different ideas on how reynard should be treated. In the southern hill country, where fox hunting is rated above the sport of kings, followers of the chase have high regard for the fox and would have the conservation department continue to protect him as a fur-bear ing animal most of the year in that section. But in the northeastern section, the farmers can see no good in the fox at all and want him put on the vermin list subject to execution at all times with a bounty up to $4. So went the argument before the house conservation committee which is considering a bill to call him ver min.

In their last home Cage appearance of the season, Bluffton High Pirates will play Van Wert this Friday night on the Bluffton floor.

In the game with Pandora before a packed house on the Bluffton floor, the Pirates held a slight edge during the first half, but Pandora pulled up to win by one point in wild play of the third and fourth quarters. Bluffton’s first-quarter lead was 14 to 8 and at halftime the locals were out in front, 19 to 14. In the third stanza Pandora’s defense tightened and tallied eight points to Bluffton’s two to lead, 22 to 21, near the close of the period. Bluffton came thru with another fielder just before the whistle, how ever, to have the lead at the quarter, 23 to 22. The Pirates faltered again, in the opening minutes of the fourth stanza permitting the visitors to take the long end of a 29 to 24 score. Battling uphill, the Burckymen tied the score at 29-all, but Pandora ran up three more points, 32 to 29, and Lee’s field goal in the closing seconds was one point shy of tying the score. Pandora got 12 field goals and eight free throws, against Bluffton’s 11 fielders and nine charity tosses. Ada and Bluffton also had a fiercely contested battle in their meeting at Ada Friday before the Bulldogs eked out a 48 to 45 win. After the score had been tied three times Ada held a 13 to 11 lead at the end of the first quarter. Bluff ton then went out in front, 17 to 15, but the Bulldogs spurted to lead at the intermission, 27 to 21.
