Trailing midway through the final
period by two points, Bluffton High’s
undefeated eagers cut loose with a
seven-point splurge while holding
their opponents scoreless to down
Lima St. Rose, 52 to 47, Tuesday
night on the Bluffton floor.
It was the eighth consecutive vic
tory of the season for the Pirates,
but St. Rose, beaten only once before
this year, proved the strongest foes
the locals have faced to date.
The visitors held the edge at the
close of the first quarter, 13 to 12,
after the score had been tied four
times and the lead had changed
hands on the same number of occa
Bluffton’s offensive maneuvers
worked better in the second period,
however, and at halftime the locals
had pulled away to a 26 to 21 lead,
but in the third quarter St. Rose
again narrowed the gap to trail by
only one point, 40 to 39, at the end
of the stanza.
The fourth quarter was a thriller
all the way, with St. Rose knotting
the count 41 to 41, shortly after
the opening of the period and two
minutes later the visitors were out
in front 44 to 43.
Then, midway thru the quarter,
with the count standing 47 to 45, St.
Rose, Bluffton’s defense looked its
best of the year as the Pirates held
the visitors scoreless the rest of the
way, while they were tallying the
seven points that gave them victory.
Three players for Bluffton and
two on the Lima team vied for scor
ing honors in the game. Neil
Schmidt, Bluffton forward, was high
point-getter with 15, and Mulcahy,
of Lima, had 14. Wayne Sommer,

Among teachers now employed at

teachers is said to center on salaries
paid Mr. and Mrs, Spayth and Mar

ning of the second semester last
year, and the other two assumed
teaching duties here this fall.
In addition to the debated question
of salary schedules, the board also
has faced the problem of determining
how much of approximately $10,000
additional provided by the levy each
year will go for teachers pay. In
preliminary discussion it has been
indicated that approximately half of
the total will be set aside for badly
needed maintenance of buildings and
