ping nowadays a high adventure
into the realm of uncertainty life is
anything but monotonous fact
is that bread and meat supplies are
on a catch-as-catch can basis with
early shoppers figuring they have
the best chance at the catching
really surprising how many early
shoppers you can see downtown mak
ing the rounds of groceries hoping
to snatch a loaf of bread before it’s
chucked under the counter for the
regular customers and in these
days when there are twice as many
calls for bread as there are loaves
to go around it’s just too bad if
you’re not one of the regulars
looks as if we’ll have to revive
grandma’s all but forgotten art of
home baking—if there's any flour
and foresighted hostesses some
of these days will be telling their
Sunday dinner guests to bring their
own bread along with their sugar
never thot that bread, plentiful
during the war would become a
peacetime headache and meat
shops closing Saturday afternoon for
the day recalled days of rationing
just to distribute a few pounds
of pork chops and keep everybody
happy is a neat little problem which
the butchers have not yet solved
however, with more than half the
world going to bed hungry every
night, we’re still not too badly off if
we have a day or two without bread
at a time when the four horsemen

There’s a smart farm woman in
the Bluffton district who has a
brand new’ pair of nylons because
she is an expert buttermaker. With
nylons scarce and butter equally
unobtainable, she struck a bargain
w’ith the wife of a merchant in a
nearby city to furnish butter in ex
change for nylons—and the arrange
ment appears to be working out to
the mutual satisfaction of all con
cerned. Now don’t rush, girls—re
member Rome wasn’t built in a
day—and buttermaking isn’t learned
in a day either.
And w’hile we’re on the subject of
w’omen’s fashions—on which we lay
no claim to speak with authority—
we’ll pass along for what it may be
w’orth, an observation which we
heard the other day that women’s
skirts currently at knee length level
are beginning to dip in the back
and if history repeats itself that
sign can be taken as a forerunner
of a depression.
However, w’e did check tfn this at
a source which should know and
here’s what w’e found. Dresses be
gan to lower in the back in 1927 and
then the front was lengthened to
even out the line. Ry 1933 skirts
w’ere almost down to the ankles.
Now when dresses are up to the
knees hemlines are beginning to dip

THE RECOGNIZED LEADER
IN ANY KIND OF CROP...
If you've had occasion to watch the Clwper at work
in a tough harvest, yop know how it^jak^s the difficult
jobs in stride afrves dowj*mid tangled grain
where other combine/ are ohprflorced to admit defeat.
Three-point Clipper construction, plus advanced
engineering all the wcrp'tn rough add up to unequalled
grain and money-saying advantages when you com
bine your crop the Clipper way. 1) Full Six (or Seven)
Foot cut... 2) 5-Foot Rasp Bar Cylinder ... 3) Full-

til they got into Monterey, some 150
miles south of the border when they
experienced the squeeze of Mexico’s
flourishing black market. Shortages
in many lines together with accom
panying inflation. Gasoline, Ed says,
w’as virtually unobtainable even at
a price of $2 a gallon in American
money. Nylons are featured in
newspaper advertisements at $22.50
a pair, Mexican money, which w’ould
be about $4.75 in American money.
Some confusion due to a similar
ity of names, as well as similarity
of jobs between Ralph Locher, secre
tary to Governor Lausche and John
Lokar, the governor’s personal secre
tary. Both have responsible posi
tions under Ohio’s governor, but
each has different duties. Ralph, a
former Bluffton youth, explained
the difference when here over the
W’eek end attending graduation fes
tivities. He and his family live in
Columbus. His wife, the former
Eleanor Worthington of Bluffton and
little daughter accompanied him
here visiting at Mrs. Locher’s par
ents Mr. and Mrs. A. T. Worthing
ton of South Main street.
Donald Spallinger, living south of
Bluffton is pondering the significance
of the remains of a small balloon
which he found while plowing in a
field, Friday afternoon. Inscription
on the balloon indicated that it had
been sent from Ft. Wayne, April 18.
Inside the balloon was a candle
which was evidently burning during
the flight. Only a small piece of
the unburned candle remained.
We are again calling attention to
the w’ar department regulation which
prohibits publication of addresses of
overseas men. Mention of this is
made because of a number of re
quests received recently for such
You’ve heard of cats having nine
lives—a variation of this can be seen

Ralph Hauenstein, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Edwin Hauenstein of Detroit,
formerly of Bluffton was one of four
high school students awarded War
Bonds as winners in an essay spon
sored by the Detroit Historical so
ciety. There were 6,700 entries.
Pictures of the four winners ap
peared in Detroit newspapers last
week. The essay topic was: “Why
should Detroit celebrate the sesqui
centennial of the raising of the
American Flag over Detroit in
1797?” Hauenstein’s father connect

and his mother, the former Ruth
