February—birthday month of three
great Americans—sure, we know the
two you’re thinking of—but there’s
also Thomas Edison’s anniversary
next Tuesday ... he was born in
Milan, southeast of Sandusky which
is the village’s only claim to fame
and as for birthdays, there’s
Mrs. Esta Lugibill Dye of a pioneer
Bluffton family, now living in Wells
ton, who also has a birthday every
February which her husband Philip
thoughtfully remembers with a sub-

scription to the Bluffton News—
splendid idea, we think and
then there are George Frick and
Mrs. Dora Montgomery whose birth
days come on Ground Hog day
which reminds us that the Ground
Hog wasn’t fooling when he saw his
shadow Sunday and scurried back
to his den for six weeks more of
winter—barely in time to escape
that cold wave which struck Tuesday
—so all of you skeptics chalk up an
other one for accuracy of Ground
Hog w’eather farecasts however,
with the thermometer skidding to
where it barely missed zero again
for the second time in a fortnight,
there was, happily no fuel crisis—
dealers last week were actually ask
ing their trade to help them dispose
of a surplus which may have been
temporary and Bluffton politics
bestirred itself Monday night for
party caucuses with some new faces
sprinkled in among the old regulars
—and Baker and Stauffer, heading
the two tickets for mayor are next
door neighbors on Kibler street
and they’re still talking about those
$10 bills passed thru the congrega
tion at the Presbyterian church Sun
day morning—instead of taking up
a collection the money was dis
tributed, reversing the age-old pro
cess which came as a complete sur
prise to everyone—the church has
embarked upon a present-day appli
cation of the parable of the talents—
looks good and anyway the ground’s
too hard now to bury the talent—so
the only thing left is to put it to
work and so enters February
Sunday was an unusual day in
Bluffton churches—besides the inno
vation at the Presbyterian church,
congregations at the First Mennon
ite and St. John's Reformed had
their morning services rudely inter
rupted by a big plane which is re
ported to have zoomed eight times
over the town at scarcely more than
tree-top level and the roaring motors
made it necessary to suspend the
services until the aerial playboy had
sufficiently amused himself to leave
for other parts. Some observers re
ported the plane was a Navy Aveng
er type. Clayton Bixel of the Bluff
ton airfield said it was definitely not
a local plane and he knew nothing
of the identify of the stranger.
Bixel added that no local planes fly

cause of the possibility of interfer
ing with church services.
Some Mainly Personal Personali
ties—There are the Althaus twins—
William and Levi living west of
town—Levi is on the school board
and William isn’t, but there are a
lot of Bluffton people, including the
writer of this column who can’t tell
them apart except when the school
board is in session—wonder how
many of our readers can identify
them when they’re not together
and word from Don Smucker now
in Princeton, New’ Jersey, Theologi
cal seminary, erstwhile Bluffton
youth who says that there may not
be an indispensable man but there is
an indispensible weekly for all form
er Blufftontians—w’hich of course
w’e are counting as one of our val
And those long-aw’aited high school
band uniforms making their debut
at the basketball game last Friday
night—they’re really snazzy with
enough braid to fit out the captain
of the queen’s navee in Gilbert &
Sullivan’s Pinafore. Quite impress
ive we’ll assure you and they give
Bluffton’s band a suave and finished
And speaking of basketball, tour
nament time here in another week
the team and fans are setting their
sights for Columbus and the high
school championship at the end of
the trail—looks as if Bluffton which
has barely missed the state title sev
eral times in past year, had its big
chance this time.

Just recently a middle-aged woman
of this vicinity told us that she had
suffered 3 years of torture with neu
ritic pains. She said she felt like a
sharp knife was being gouged into
her muscles, and sometimes these
pains would strike her like an elec
tric shock. She said one could hardly
stand it. Today this lady is again
enjoying life, and she says the change
is due to taking RHU-AID. Her
pains are gone now. No more feel
ing like a knife rouged in£o her
muscles. She is einijew (rree/ of her
misery, thanks to Zjj^p/rgjm.arkable
RHU-AID is the new liquid form

ingredients. These Three Great Med

to the very’ cause of rheumatic

people soon feel different all over.

You can’t see the heart of AMSTUTZ HATCHERIES ad
vanced breeding program, but it beats inside the chick you get.
Remember that the egg production of the chick depends on the
breeding back of its parent stock. By using individually pedi
greed wing-banded males from some of the world’s greatest
(record of performance) breeders to sire AMSTUTZ baby chicks
in all of our DELUXE matings and sons of individual pedigreed
males in our AAA matings, we pass on to our own chicks the
ability of the sire’s mother of a high trapnest record to lay
lots of big eggs.
Pedigree-Sired Chicks Pay Dividends For instance, you
have a flock of 200 Amstutz’s egg bred laying hens, they lay
one or two dozen more eggs per hen a year, than a common
strain. At 30 cents a dozen that would just about figure out
$65.00 to $120.00 more profit a year. Order AMSTUTZ’S
chicks for greater profit this season.

ORDERS booked by FEBRUARY 15th for future delivery, first
