Happenings Affecting Woods, Waters and Wildlife
By THE BLUFFTON COMMUNITY SPORTSMEN’S CLUB, INC.
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

grounds at both ends of the quarry.
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

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

In their last home Cage appearance
of the season, Bluffton High Pirates
will play Van Wert this Friday
night on the Bluffton floor.
Both teams will be endeavoring to
improve their standing in the West
ern Buckeye league, and a win for
the Pirates would boost them into
the first division.
To date each school has won two
and lost two games in the league,
and advance "dope” indicates the
Bluffton High cagers lost two
heart-breaking decisions last week—
a 32 to 31 setback at the hands of
Pandora on Wednesday night and a
48 to 45 reversal administered by
Ada on Friday.
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.
A total of 28 points were tallied
in a wild third period which ended
with a tie score, 38 to 38, then Ada

were decided by a one-point margin,
the Pirate seconds beating Pandora,
29 to 28, and losing to Ada, 21 to

Bluffton and Pandora reserve
teams staged a real thriller here
last Wednesday. Bluffton had a
lead of 8 to 7 at the quarter, but the
visitors tied it up at 14-all at half
time.
Pandora then spurted away to lead
26 to 21 at the close of the third
quarter, and Bluffton knotted the
count at the end of the regulation
distance, 27-27. In the overtime, the
Pirate understudies got two points
and Pandora only one. Althaus and
Lewis paced the Bluffton attack, with
eight and six respectively.
At Ada Bluffton got away to a
fast start to lead at the quarter, 7
to 2, and the team still was out in
front at halftime, 12 to 10.
Ada had the third quarter advant
age, 19 to 15, and altho Bluffton
scored 5 points to two for Ada in
the closing stanza the Pirates never
were able to overtake their foe.

of the last several weeks makes it
impossible to count the Pirates out
