The farmer whose boy was drafted
for military sendee and now back on
the farm is in the choice spot, since
the ex-sen’ice men have priority on
the small stocks of farm machinery
available. The boys are at the top of
the lists of Bluffton implement dealers
and priority in the delivery of farm
machinery may partly repay dad for
being deprived of the boy’s sendees
while in the service.

Bluffton’s rubbish collection system
is handling more ashes this winter,
says Lee Coon, in charge of the work.
The increase in ashes is attributed to
poorer quality of coal which has been
received during the current fuel short
age. Also there are more tin cans,
which may indicate less home canning.

pals, now in the Navy met in Guam

New 1946 Ohio ton- ng road maps,
first printed since the outbreak of
World War II, are rolling off the
presses and probably will be ready
for distribution this week, according
to an announcement by State High
way Director Perry T. Ford.
The last haps printed by the
State Highway Department were
distributed in 1942 but that same
map was reprinted in 1943.
Two hundred thousand of the
1946 road maps are being printed,
Mr. Ford said, “but undoubtedly
more will have to be printed later
in the year as the demand for Ohio’s
beautiful road maps is tremendous.”
The map will be 25"X22’’, unfold
ed, and is being printed in four col
ors—dark blue, light blue, red and
yellow. The state’s 18,443 miles of
state highways will be on the map
by a scale of 10 miles to an inch.
Two new features have been added
to this year’s map: all roads three
lanes or more wide (30 or more
feet) will be designated by an extra
line along the regular road line, and
location of Ohio’s conservation state
parks will be marked in red.
Other features the map boasts in
