Building Boom Is Launched to Beat Housing Shortage (Continued from Page 1) street on the College road, and the Weldon Deppler residence recently completed on the J. C. Deppler farm just outside the town corporation on the Bentley road, is occupied. Two other houses are nearing com pletion. A brick structure on the ’former “Foundry Corner”, Grove and Jackson streets, is ready for plumb ing and interior finishing. It will be occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Ulrich Am stutz, who came here a year ago from Wisner, Neb. A home being built on West Elm street, near the College road, will be ready in June for occupancy by the Harlan Moser family. They now re side on South Mound street in a pro perty they sold recently to Charles Conrad. The Conrads will move from the Chamberlain apartments on Cherry street into the Mound street property when vacated by Mosers. Merl Habegger now has a prefab ricated house under construction on the lot at the corner of Elm street and the College road. Two other prefabricated units are being erected on the Bluffton college campus to house four student families. Will Move House Another way to beat the housing shortage will be demonstrated by Ben Shafer, who bought a house in Benton Ridge and will move it to Bluffton this spring. The building will be placed on the two lots Shafer purchased recently adjoining the Levi Frankhauser property near the Allen Hancock county line, in the Fred Mueller addition fronting on Route 103. Shafer expects to bring the house here in May, after which it will be remodeled. Fred Badertscher, owner of the property Shafer occupies at South Main and Kibler streets, plans to remodel the residence into a two family duplex this summer. Two families have completed over size garages in which they are living unt^l homes can be bulit. Both are located in the Fred Mueller addition on the Dixie highway, and occupants are the Harvey Wilch and Gene Mer icle families. Another garage now under con struction in the King addition on Harmon road will be occupied by the Richard Davies family this spring. Mrs. Davies is the former Vernice McElroy. The family now is living with her parents Mr. and Mrs. Frank McElroy on South Main street. Expansion Needs Are Facing Board of Public Affairs (Continued from Page 1) Councilmen took the matter under consideration, with a report expect ed at the next meeting. Repair Water Tank Board of Public Affairs spokesmen also asked council permission to ad vertise for bids covering the cost of repairing and painting the present water tank, which is in poor condi tion. At the same time, they pointed out that a larger tank, in a central loca tion. The 83,000-gallon capacity of tion is needed. The 83,000-gallon capacity of the present tank, erected 50 years ago, no longer is sufficient for the town, and pressure is main tained in mains here largely by means of the waterworks pumps. No recommendation on the matter of a new water tower, however, was presented to the council by the board. The problem of chlorination of the town’s water supply is an old one, and the state’s recommendation is one of long standing. Continued growth of the village, however, has served to intensify the state’s demands in the matter, and a showdown in the issue eventually must be faced. CARD OF THANKS We wish to thank all the neighbors and friends for their aid and sym pathy extended during the illness and death of our beloved wife and mother especially do we thank Rev. Bigelow who officiated at the funeral services and Mrs. O. C.

BLUFFTON. OHIO A habit established in war years is in evidence again here this spring, with the town’s former “Victory Gardeners” wielding shovels, rakes and hoes in backyard plots. Those who have comparatively small gardens which can be spaded by hand are getting along all right, but gardeners with larger plots are experiencing difficult this spring in getting their ground plowed. Farmers with tractors are too busy in their own fields to get into town, and most of them are too short handed so far as spring plowing is concerned to worry about the plight of Bluffton’s gardeners. Plowing done by tractor is bringing prices ranging from $3 to $5 for a single lot! Victory gardeners, however, are far wiser than when they were flushed with enthusiasm in early war years, and smaller plots satisfy most of them this spring. Many have learned the hard way that a small well-managed garden will re turn more vegetables than a poorly operated large plot. One of the most common mistakes in the early days of victory garden collect. John Dun So successful was Dun at this work that when a person refused to pay his debts, friends of the creditor would say to him “Why don’t you Dun him?” meaning, why don’t you send John Dun after him? From this arose the custom of calling a pressing request for the payment of money a “dun.” (Released by Western Newspaper Union.)

SHORTS AND MIDDLINGS Victory Gardeners Get Out Tools To Continue Backyard Pastime This Spring "The Name Is Familiar— WMKHMM nw BY FELIX B. STREYCKMANS and ELMO SCOTT WATSON Dun I) ACK in the days of King Henry VII of England, a famous bailiff named John Dun, lived in the town of Lincoln. He was one of the earli est exponents of the “treat ’em rough” method of dealing with of fenders against the law. He was also unusually proficient collecting rents, duties and originated the ic debtors’ houses, dressed in an odd and colorful cos tume, to attract the attention of the neighbors. Sometimes he would walk up and down in front of the debtor’s house broadcast ing to the whole neighborhood the nature of the debt he was sent to general debts. He lea of calling at Ohio milk production the last week in February was a little higher than for the same week in 1945. Subsidy payments of 60 cents a hundred weight on milk and 17 cents a pound on butterfat continue to May 1 and then drop to 25 cents a hundred weight and to 10 cents a pound until July 1. The 1946 support price on soy beans will be the same as was in effect in 1945, the base price being $2.04 per bushef. Deductions will be made for soybeans of poor quality, with high moisture content, and of colors other than yellow or green. Soybean acreage goals have been increased because the supply of oils end fats is not equal to demands. The use of wheat or any product of wheat in making malt beverages was prohibited March 1. The aggre gate of all other grains used by brewers also was limited to 70 per cent of the amounts used by the brewing industry in 1945. Wheat is needed for human food, and the supply of feed grains for livestock is likely to be below amounts re quired by farmers, ranchers, and poultrymen. Farmers installing water systems are advised to choose pumps large enough so they need not be operated more than two hours a day to provide sufficient water. People re quire an average of 25 gallons of water daily, cows 15 gallons, horses 10 gallons, hogs two gallons, and chickens four gallons per 100 birds. Changeable weather makes extra hazards in raising chicks. Unless automatic controls regulate brooders accurately, there are likely to be sudden temperature changes in the brooder house. Too much heat or too much cold are almost equally disastrous to the chicks, so extra vigilance is needed. ing was in the selection of too large a plot of ground, and only thru ex perience did many amateurs learn that it isn’t the size of the garden as much as the skill of managing it that produces the best results and fills the home vegetable cellar in the fall. Another lesson learned the hard way by many was the knowledge that it isn’t the bubbling-over zest of early spring, evaporating with the hot days of mid-summer, that gets things done, but rather a carefully mapped plan of work and crop rota tion. Planting early crops that can be harvested in early summer and fol lowed by later maturing vegetables can go far toward eliminating un necessary work, and still produce the same results that a larger plot could give. Three years of gardening have taught many that the duties of their regular jobs do not permit much time for outside activities, and that it is better to tend a small garden well than to plant a plot too large for the time they have to spend on it.
