that Bluffton’s proposed roadside
park on North Main street near
Buckeye lake which didn’t jell last

hardest bump of the season—and

Bluffton householders whose coal
bins were empty and no coal to be

up the family furniture to obtain
firewood.
High school band uniforms—in
bright reds and blues and dazzling
greens with more gold braid than
that of a navy admiral of the fleet—
paraded Bluffton’s streets last Sat
urday. It was a gala affair when
youths from nearly a score of
Northwestern Ohio high schools were
here for a band contest. And be it
said to the credit of the crowd that
it was a well-behaved, orderly lot of
young people who thronged Bluff
ton’s eating places and bought up all
the chocolate bars in sight and then
started on cookies.
It was a field day for Bluffton
groups interested in the promotion
of uniforms for the high school band
here, giving everyone an opportunity
for a closeup of some of the lead

And while the Northwestern Ohio
group was contesting for honors
here, the Carrollton high school mu

former Bluffton college student was
winning top places in the Eastern
Ohio district contest at Muskingum
college. The Carrollton group was

If you attended Mills Bros, circus
here early last summer, you’ll re
member Burma, the 35-year-old cir
cus elephant which was one of the
main attractions of the show. Well,
Burma broke loose from her moor
ings and went on a one-hour spree
while the circus was showing at
Marion last week as you may have
seen by press dispatches.
Her principal depredation consist
ed of flattening backyard fences as
she wandered thru alleys upsetting
garbage cans and investigating the
contents for tempting morsels.
Burma was just careless—not vic
ious. She was finally cornered at a
street intersection and recaptured by
police and a truckload of circus em
ployes.
