MarUtUf Bluffton’s first peacetime Easter in five years will be here Sunday bringing with it some of the tradi tional trappings of the Easter season there’ll be plenty of home-color ed eggs—the chocolate ones will be scarce jelly beans back for the first time since the war and gaily dyed chicks for the kiddies in selec tion of a half-dozen different shades. and the girls from 6 to 60 going all out for a gay Easter parade hats more bizzare than ever—maybe that’s to attract attention from the glaring absence of nylons—yes, dearie k Bright Spot for a new Easter Bonnet While you’re in to buy a new Easter outfit at our place and leave v and market your Robert Murray Next to Town Hall you’ll have to make the old ones do— altho one Bluffton store held out hopes for some relief soon—and they say that the coupon response was quick and amazing after last week’s Bluffton News appeared always said they read the ads and this proves it and if she’s getting along with last year’s rayons that’s better than the butter situation—if you don’t know the right people and the proper hi-sign your’re completely out of luck —and that goes for oleo, too and now folks eagerly grab a pound of oleo who back in the dear dead days were snooty and wouldn’t think of having anything but butter on their table—surprising how times change and the duration’s lasting longer than the war—and speaking of the duration, a lot of farmers in the Bluffton district spent real money in Bluffton We’re that bright spot on Bluffton’s Main street—you can’t miss the gleaming white front in the daytime and our well lighted place at night. 24 Hour* Service Our Hot Hamburgej^-^They’re Tops Counter^bBrtfvVindow Service Just across thiMSridge at entrance to Buckeye Lake The Buckeye Lunch Owned and Operated by William Smith & Joseph Hubble While y»ur Wife Shops waiting for your wife to s a good time to drop around ord for our. truck to pick up Cream, Egj s and Poultry Handiest thing you how you ever got along TheK&M gver saw—and you’ll wonder without it. Produce Co. Charles Kinsinger Bluffton phone 492-W Z GAS cooks !|||SS| for the gjhgl Union News Company’s The Grand Central Terminal Restau rani In New York has cooked with Gas tor the past 15 years. Equipment in cludes fryers, broilers and bake ovens. The speed of Gas is well appreciated in such a busy restaurant which is thronged by commuters and visitors from all over the globe. In addition, West Ohio Gas Co. Restaurant in HM Grand Central Terminal, New Ya sending a flood of telegrams over the week end to congressmen asking them to put the skids under OPA now fighting for its life in Washington. Bluffton oldtimers will remember J. J. “Jake” Makely, one of the stal warts of the Odd Fellow lodge here some 40 years ago. He is now living in Columbia, Mo., and celebrated his 80th birthday anniversary last month. He keeps informed on happenings in Bluffton thru the columns of the News. And speaking of the days way back when—Mrs. Lydia Lora has a photo graph of her two brothers Adolph and Wilbur Schifferly taken April 9, 1911, as they were reading The Bluffton News at their home in Cincinnati. Both have been gone from Bluffton for more than 40 years but still have a warm spot in their hearts for the old home town. Adolph still re sides in Cincinnati while Wilbur lives in nearby Bromley, Ky. You’ve all heard complaints of the older generation berating the short comings of the youngsters—but oc casionally the youngsters speak up and have something to say for them selves. The other day we overheard a farm youth of junior high school age complaining that his father con siders him capable of driving the tractor all day—and to do a man’s job—but at night, he’s not old enough to be trusted with the family car to go to town. Perhaps we’re wrong but it seems to us that some where in this incident is something that tends to make boys dissatisfied with the farm. A strange paradox is the fact that altho colleges are overflowing, high school enrollments are the lowest in years, so we are told by Clair “Styx” Stettler, instructor in Cleveland’s East Technical high school here on Easter recess the first of the week visiting his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Cal Stettler. The colleges are crowded with ex-service men while the big city high schools which speeded up courses during the war have grad uated some which under ordinary con ditions would still have been in high school. This condition is further ag gravated by the declining birth rate. Present enrollment of East Tech high school of 1,800 is less than half its capacity. Stettler who got his first taste of newspaper work on the Bluff ton college student publication the Witmarsum, is instructor in journal ism and conducts classes in news ad vertising writing, supervises publica tion of the Cleveland school’s news paper and handles its publicity. Comes a letter from Capt. Elbert Kibele, stationed at Frankfurt on Main in Germany where he frequent ly sees Lt. Dwight Diller, also sta tioned at that place. The city has been badly smashed y the war, the cleanliness and dependability of Gas are praised in this installation. There is no restaurant, large or small, that will not do a more profitable, more efficient job if it utilizes Gas in its kitchens—and the same applies to home cooking where Gas is lending a helping hand to housewives making their cooking task easier, faster and more economical. iw w ■gS THE BLUFFTON NEWS. BLUFFTON, OHIO Kibele says, with most of the build ings in ruins. Extent of the damage is impossible to comprehend unless one has seen it, he continues. There were about two weeks of ice skating during January, however the past winter was mild and not nearly as cold as winters in Ohio, he writes. Charles Hilty doesn’t mind mowing the grass at his South Main street residence when the results are as sur prising as they turned out to be last Saturday. Pushing away at the lawn mower, he stopped when he spotted a mushroom right in front of the whirl ing blades. A search of the vicinity yielded more than 50 of them and provided a tasty evening snack for the family. Bluffton’s housing shortage is get ting a lot of publicity these days— in fact an item appeared the other day in the Denver (Colorado) Post that Bluffton people are building garages to serve as homes until more material is available. Looking over the newspaper, the Bluffton date line caught the eye of Gordon Hilty, Bluffton native now living in Denver, who sent the clipping to his parents Mr. and Mrs. Philip Hilty residing south of town. Gordon, remembered as an outstandnig vocalist in his high school days here is soloist for St. John’s Episcopal cathedral in Denver and also doing other solo work in that section. Comes an appeal from Lee Coon, Bluffton’s municipal cleaner-upper asking householders to help keep al leys clean. Many people, he says, dump refuse in alleys all of which, excepting brush, will be hauled away by the town’s collecting system, if placed in containers. If refuse is burned in the alleys the debris and ashes should be removed, especially if it contains nails. Birthday Dinners Mr. and Mrs. Maynard J. Coon of North Robinson entertained at din ner Sunday in honor of his birth day anniversary, Mr. and L. Coon of Bluffton and Mrs. Herbert Coon and Cynthia of Columbus.
