brated their 15th w’edding anniver

with a flourish to the lunch counter
regulars and Sunday is the last
day to joyride on the 1945 tags
so exits March 1946.
And speaeking of joyriding—you
don’t have to pay for those new 1946
road maps which the state highway
is issuing this spring. Some folks
who sent in nickels and dimes, to
gether with 3-cent stamps to cover
postage are getting their money back.
The maps are free.
And another sure sign of spring—
snakes sighted in Orange township.
Elmer Anderson reports having killed
a blue racer measuring five and one
half feet in the Cal Ewing woods
last Wednesday. It was in the early
morning and the snake was too slug
gish to flee.
Strangers coming into Bluffton
are frequently confused because
streets are not laid out east and
west, or north and south. Fact is,
according to Street Commissioner Lee
Coon, Bluffton has only one thoro
fare—Huber street, running due
north and south. You know, perhaps,
that this street runs from Jeffer
son to Cherry street. There are
no streets running due east and west.
Reason for this is that Main street
follows the Lima Findlay road which
originally was an Indian trail running
northeast and southwest thru Bluff
ton. The trail followed the high
ground, with no consideration for the
niceties of points of the compass as
the red men picked the most advan
tageous natural travel route from
Lake Erie to the Ohio river. The
town will have several streets run
ning north and south and east and
west w’hen some thorofares shown on
the town plat are opened.
Just in event you did not know it,
the Legion of Merit awarded by the
Army to Col. Rene Studler, Bluffton
native and son of Mrs. Paul Studler
of South Jackson street, is the na
tion’s highest military award for non
combat service. The more familiar
Congressional Medal is awarded for
combat action only. An article ap
pearing in last week’s issue of the
Bluffton New’s told of the honor con
ferred on Col. Studler who fs con
nected with Army Ordnance depart
ment in Washington.
Safe drinking water—so common
that one scarcely gives it a thought
—is not at all common outside of
this country. Fact is, that America’s
almost universally safe drinking
water, everywhere available in virtu
ally unlimited quantities is one of the
marvels of the rest of the world.
Charley Lora, just returned from
Greece where he accompanied a ship
load of cattle for relief says that
dirt and filth everywhere prevalent
have polluted water so that it
is unsafe to drink and they drank
