Club Continues Fish Restocking “Boy, what beauties.’’ “Look at the size of those babies,” and “Where is my fishing pole?” were just a few of the expressions heard from the crowd gathered to watch the conser vation men on the fish truck dump the second load of fish in the Buck eye. The fall fish restocking pro gram is nearly completed and one more truck load will arrive this Wed nesday or Thursday noon. This lat ter truck load will probably be divid ed between the water works quarry and the Buckeye, the committee stat ed earlier in the wook.

Two Car Loads of Big Game Hunters to Head for Canada Ten big game hunters will head for the wilds of Ontario, Canada, Sun day for a two weeks’ stay in one of the best deer hunting sections of that famed Canadian province. Two cars and a trailer will be used to haul the men and hunting equip ment needed for the trip. In the party: Ross Irwin, Fred Hahn, Lester Hahn, Wilbur Niswander, Russell Montgomery, Harold Montgomery, Leland Sechler, Joe Birchnaugh, Will iam Hahn of Lima and Glen Eichel berger of Toledo. The hunters have engaged a large cabin for the two week period. They will travel to BAice Station in Ontario where they will be joined by Reuben Beilhartz and two other guides who will aid them in their quest for big game. Black bear and deer abound in the region and early reports indicate there will be plenty of game await ing the Jiunters. This year the group plans to arrive at their destination a few days ahead of the opening of the big game season on November 1, in order to try their luck at fishing and also to give those making the trip a chance to limber up. The region abounds in lakes, some of which are 165 feet in depth. Walnuts Wanted The game reserve committee of the club urges the public to gather up walnuts for wildlife feeding this win ter. Take the walnuts (they need not be hulled) to Niswander and Herring Veterinarian office and the club will pay 25 cents per bushel for them. WALLPAPER THE BLUFFTON NEWS, BLUFFTON, OHIO Under onio lhi As told by ^Conservation Division Conservation AND The cuas CREATED PC INTEREST SPORTS"^ A THEM INTEREST CONSERVATION PRACTISES' For the second Saturdav in a row, Ohio Northern defeated Bluffton col lege by a margin of three touch downs, with a 20 to 0 victory over the Beavers, in an O. N. U. Home coming attraction at Ada, last Sat urday afternoon. A week earlier the Bears had beaten Bluffton at Harmon field, 20 to 0, and they virtually duplicated the stunt last Saturday to demon strate that "lightning can strike twice in the eame place.” In another respect the story was the same, for all of Northern’s scor ing came in the first two quarters, and from halftime on the short-man ned Bluffton squad battled their foes on even terms. One of the hottest championship races in many a year has developed this fall in the Western Buckeye league, and altho the Bluffton High Pirates are virtually eliminated as title contenders they remain in the thick of the battle for runner up honors .... At present Van Wert and St. Marys are the only remaining undefeated teams, both in league and outside play, and their meeting in two weeks will be one for the books Both defeated Bluffton by the same score, 25 to 0, the only setbacks inci dentally that the Pirates have suff ered in the league. n Van Wert last week handed Wapa koneta’s Indians their first defeat of the year, 21 to 7, and the latter outfit, opposing Bluffton here Thursday night, will be aching to break back into the winning column ..

Jack Wilson added the third touchdown by intercepting a Bluffton pass and running 37 yards to score. At the close of the tilt, the Beav ers were in scoring territory after marching from their own 27 to the Ada 12-yard line, but the gun cut short their chance of scoring. It marked the end of a short sea son for the 14-man Bluffton squad, which resumed football play for the first time this fall after a three year layoff because of the war. much at stake, for unless they turn back the visitors they will have no chance to stay in the running for a chance at the runnerup position Bluffton’s present record is two wins and two losses in loop competition. One thing in Bluffton’s favor this week is the fact that the locals long have held a jinx over Wapakoneta, and that never since Bluffton-Wapa koneta play was started in 1922 have the Indians been able to defeat the Pirates two years in succession Last^year Wapakoneta was victorious, 40 to 0, and should history repeat it self the Pirates will win this fall In 17 games Bluffton has won 11 and tied one Pandora lost its second game of the season last week with Lima St. Rose turning the trick by a 14 to 6 score Celina beat Bellefontain 6 to 0, and Kenton lost to Ada, 7 to 0 ... and Mrs. Ella Dillman were Sunday evening supper guests at the Amos and Weldon Luginbuhl home.

It will be the local crew’s last home game of the season. Comparative scores do not give an accurate picture as to the rela tive strength of the two outfits. Wapakoneta beat Ada, 12 to 7, a team that Bluffton subdued, 19 to 0. On the other hand Bluffton lost to Van Wert, 25 to 0, and the Indians held the same outfit to a 21 to 6 score. St. Marys, defending Western Buckeye league champions, had too much power for Bluffton High’s lighter eleven last Friday night at Harmon field, and walloped the Pi rates, 25 to 0, for the local crew’s second league setback against the same number of wins. Scoring ineach period, the Rough riders showed the class which has carried them to four consecutive wins so far this season, and their rugged defensive play thwarted every offensive threat of the Pirates. Huwer, a speedy back with plenty of drive, accounted for three of the St. Marys touchdowns, and Vander horst tallied the other. The first three attempts at conversion failed, but a pass from Huwer to Berger Mrs. Carl Ford of Belle Center and Mrs. Stella Bowers of Harrod.

Last year Wapakoneta was vic torious over the Pirates, 40 to 0, but the victory marked only the fifth time in the 17-game series that the Indians were able to take the decis ion. Since 1922, the Pirates have won 11 of the contests, and another ended in a 6-6 tie. Both teams will be on fire for this week’s meeting, for Wapakoneta has suffered only one setback in league play so far, and Bluffton has been beaten twice. accounted for the extra point after the fourth touchdown. Bluffton nearly staved off the last tally by a matter of less than a minute, for St. Marys climaxed a drive from midfield to score with only 45 seconds of playing time re maining. St. Marys and Van Wert have been touted as the favorites in this year’s Western Buckeye race, and on the basis of their showing against Blufft on they appear about equally balanced. Each defeated the Pirates by a score of 25 to 0 on the Bluffton field, and each showed defensive strength as well as an offensive punch.
