‘Twas the day after Christmas—and
that means anything from a letdown
to a hangover and it was a white
Christmas such as to satisfy the most
fastidious, as the advertisements say
however, altho Nature’s setting
was perfect, outdoor ornamental
lighting lagged far behind pre-war
standards with bulbs almost unobtain
able and Santa, poor soul did his
best—what with shortages in gift
merchandise and the current cold snap
one just can’t expect too much
and if all the folks got home for
Christmas that was something to
more than make up for Santa’s short
comings and here we are facing
another hurdle—to resolve or not to
resolve that’s the question that
comes up every New Year’s—and
whether ’tis better to resolve and fin
ally go down battling against over
whelming odds or just to forget the
whole thing and save a lot of head
aches—well, take your choice and
comes to mind the old saw: Resolu
tions, yes, we make them, not to keep
them, but to break them—for we’re
co.

only poor weak mortals after all
and a friend of this column adds the
helpful suggestion that if you’re too
busy to make resolutions this year
you might look up those of last year
and perhaps there’s still some work
to be done in carrying them out
and so we bow out 1945 and wish you
the best in the coming year.
Congratulations to Postmaster Ed
Reichenbach and his postoffice force
who handled Bluffton’s biggest vol
ume of Christmas mail so successful
ly despite the usual congested holiday
conditions and unusually long contin
ue! cold weather. It was a big job
well done.
And Christmas greetings were re
ceived by Mr. and Mrs. Ceasar
Tschantz from their son, Pvt. Fred
erick Tschantz who is spending the
holidays in Japan with the occupa
tional forces. He is stationed in Wo
koyama.
And home from the wars is Raland
Swank author of a number of letters
published in the Bluffton News de
scribing places in the European thea
tre of war as seen by the enlisted
men. Swank, now discharged, is plan
ning to attend Ohio State university
to continue graduate work. When
called into military service he was
superintendent of the Elida schools
and doing graduate work in the Ohio
State summer school.
When Horace Stratton moved on his
farm south of Bluffton 55 years ago
he subscribed for the Bluffton News—*
both of which were wise moves, he
told us the other day when he renew
ed his subscription for the coming
year. We would like to publish in
this column the names of other of our
readers who have been subscribers to
the News for 50 years or longer. If
you can qualify, send us your name.
It wasn’t turkey, nor chicken that
provided the family Christmas dinner
at Sam Stepleton’s, Tuesday—not
while fisherman Sam can flick a cast
ing rod. You’re right, it was bass
which he hooked at the waterworks
quarry some six weeks ago which
have been frozen in his locker await
ing the holidays—and mighty good
fish they were, too.
Bluffton oldtimers will remember
Ted Scheid, whose father T. G., form
erly operated a plumbing shop here.
Well, Ted is personnel director at
Camp Atterbury, Indiana and the
other day going over his records he
came across the name of Hal Stettler
enroute to training camp. That at
tracted his attention as it had some
thing of a Bluffton flavor. However
he saw that Hal was born in Cleve
land but reading on he noted that
Hal’s father C. Theodore “Styx”
Stettler was a Bluffton native—fact
is Styx and Ted were former Bluffton
college pals. Hal was summoned to
Scheid’s office for a get-acquainted
meeting. Scheid has a son in the
Navy with a long overseas record. Of
the thousands of boys who go thru
Camp Atterbury, that Scheid should
happen to see the card of the son of
one of his old home town buddies was
an unusual coincidence.
The Frank Neuenschwanders of
North Main street who are spending
the winter in the west have arrived
in Los Angeles where they report
warm weather. They expect to re-

In Memoriam
In memory of our dear mother,
Mrs. Mary Catherine DeVier who
passed away December 28, 1943.
Home is not home for mother’s
not there
Angels have taken her out of our
care
Dark is her room and empty her
chair
She’s gone to that land so peaceful
and fair.
Sleep mother, sleep, thy toils are
o’er
Sweet be thy rest so oft’ needed
before
Well have we loved thee, but God
loved thee more
He’s called thee away to that bright
happy shore.
Sadly missed by daughters and sons:
Mrs. Daisy Adams,
Grover C. DeVier,
Ernest E. Devier.
