A Good Place to Live VOLUME LXXI GALA OPENING SET FOR FRIDAY NIGHT AT CARMA THEATRE Modern New Show house Has Seating Accommodations For 492 Patrons Theatre Equipment And Fur nishings Equal Of Any In Northwestern Ohio. Gala opening of Bluffton’s new •Carina theatre with two showings this Friday night will give residents of the area their first chance to see the interior of the motion picture house, one of the finest in Northwestern Ohio. Modem in every respect, the beautifully decorated and furnished showhouse has all new equipment and will be completely air-condition ed. Special acoustic wall panels are installed to provide sound reproduc tion as good as that in any of Ohio’s larger theatres, and new type, com fortable seats will add to the enjoy ment of patrons. Construction of the building was started last December by George Carmack, who erected the structure in a post-war expansion of his theatre interests here. New Building Site of the new motion picture house adjoins Carmack’s two-story business building on South Main street occupied by the A and food store. Its architecture and materials used for construction matches the former building, to which it is attached. With a seating capacity of 492, the new theatre has an auditorium about three times as large as that in the Star, formerly Bluffton’s only showhouse. First run “A” pictures will be shown in the new Carma theatre, with second-run films scheduled for weekends only at the Star theatre, which also will continue under Car mack’s operation. For the next two weeks, however, the Star will be -closed for repairs and redecoration. Television Feature The new Carma theatre also is adapted for trunk television, which is expected to be available to show* houses in this area long before home reception will become a reality. A television trunk line, with booster stations, will run between Findlay and Bluffton in this area, and the Bluffton theatre will be served by it. Carmack first acquired his theatre interests here when he purchased the Star showhouse in October, 1939. and moved his family here from Findlay in the same year. He had planned to construct a new theatre here 1942, but the outbreak of war delayed a start on the project. A premiere showing will be made in the Carma theatre this Thursday for motion picture owners in this area, film representatives, etc. Rites Held Saturday For Albert Lovell Funeral services were held last Saturday afternoon in the Bluffton Methodist church for Albert B.

Star Gazers Line Streets For Century’s Most Spectacular Shower Of Meteors Hundreds of Residents in Their Yards to Watch Continuous Falling Star Show. Cloudless Skies Permit Full Enjoyment of Rare Treat Continuing Two Hours. An almost cloudless sky permitted Bluffton area residents to enjoy the rare aerial show’ put on last Wed nesday night when the greatest and most brilliant meteor shower of this century was at its zenith. Impromptu neighborhood star-gaz ing parties could be seen along every street, as residents craned their heads to watch the almost con tinuous performance which often had as many as six or seven shooting stars racing across the heavens at the same time. Brilliance of the moon w’as the only distracting factor, but its in terference was not serious, for some observers reported seeing as many as 23 meteors in one single minute, and the total number of shooting stars visible here must have num bered in the thousands. The first shooting stars were seen about 9 p. m. and the peak of the display was reached at 10:30. Leslie C. Peltier, Allen county’s noted amateur astronomer, said the exhibition was the best he has ever seen. Peltier for several weeks had been following with his telescope the Giacobini-Zinner comet, which shed the meteors, but said it now has disappeared into the south. He said the comet probably is bigger than the earth in diameter. The display resulted as the earth came within 131,000 miles of the spot in space where the comet pass ed eight days ago. Particles from the fiery tail of the comet thus w’ere close enough to strike the earth’s outer atmosphere envelope, and the friction of the collision threw off the sparks seen from this planet.
