Mainly,
Pe/iAonal
School bell rang Tuesday morn
ing—which means fall is here even
tho it doesn’t come officially until
later this month but here’s foot
ball preview ringing up the autumn
sports program Friday night and
some of the local boys already have
night and the boys already have
fall hunting trips to Canada in the
talk stage however, there’s been
no evidence of frost since July—re
member that cold snap and
everyone’s hoping for another month
of growing season for the corn crop
which in the Bluffton area at least
is doing remarkably well—and some
of the foresighted boys insist when it
comes to a final checkup the corn
here will be a good average crop
barring unforseen breaks such as the
suggestion of hail which we had with
Friday night’s storm and Bluff
tonites back after one last summer
vacation fling on Labor day—a good
sized crowd at the Cleveland air
show—and others at home watched a
half-dozen groups of big four-motor
ed army planes winging over town—
the largest assemblage of air power
seen here since the war which gave
us a sobering thought John Gar
linger who has been picking wild
raspberries and blackberries for can
ning this summer says the elderber
ries are now ready and so en
ters September, 1947.
It was just like old times the other
day for Wade Mumma who flew a
big Army C-46 aircraft from Wal
nut Ridge, Arkansas to West Lafay
ette, Indiana. The plane was one
that had been purchased by Purdue
university from Army surplus at
Walnut Ridge and a pilot was need
ed to fly the big ship to West La
fayette where .it will be used for
ground instruction at Purdue’s air
craft school.
Wade who flew those big Army
planes regularly over the Hump in
the China-Burma-India sector dur
ing the war was picked for the er
rand and took along with him his
roommate Joe Minton who also flew
the Hump during the war.
The plane the boys flew is u big
twin engine job with 110 foot wing
spread with a 50-passenger capacity.

James Gordon Bennett—
PIONEER. IN JOURNALISM
SEPTEMBER IJ795-JUNE 1,18^2
7b THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FREE PRESS, BENNETT
BROUGHT THE CONVICTION THAT TO BE OF MAXIMUM
SERVICE TO THE NATION, NEWSPAPERS MUST GIVE
THE PEOPLE THE NEWS PROMPTLY, COMPLETELY,
WITHOUT BIAS AND IN A FORM THAT COULD BE READ
AND UNDERSTOOD BY EVERYBODY.
These principles are basic to our free press
AS WE KNOW IT TODAY. AND BECAUSE AN INFORMED
PEOPLE IS AN ALERT PEOPLE ABLE TO RECOGNIZE
AND DISCHARGE ITS RESPONSIBILITIES, THEY ARE
VITAL TO THE PRESERVATION OF OUR DEMOCRACY.
The plane was flown a distance of
500 miles in three hours of leisurely
flying and landed at Purdue’s 110
acre airfield where it will be used as
a laboratory by James Basinger, an
instructor in the school’s aircraft
course. Speaking of bargains the
$350,000 plane was purchased by the
school for $150.
Susanna Kempf wasn’t at school

Lawn avenue and just to make
things a bit more cheerful some of
her friends are planning a postcard
shower on her 16th birthday next
Monday. Now there’s nothing ex

There’s Beaverdam—and Beaver

but Beaverburg is the official post

Photo of Robert Derringer and his
pet fox terrier of Bluffton Route 2
appears in the current issue of the
Safety Legion Pilot magazine for
juveniles, distributed by the Geiger
& Diller store here.
And speaking of dogs, there’s a
black and tan coon hound around
town, presumably lost. He’s a
friendly fellow, a bit shy, but quite
approachable when offered some
thing to eat. This column will be
glad to help find a good home for
him.
Maybe it was just for effect—and
maybe it was love—anyway there
they went the other doy, a couple
arm in arm through the hot sun and
singing “I’ve got your love to keep
me warm.”
Gene Wells, son of Mr. and Mrs.
Eugene Wells of South Main street
who entered junior high school
Tuesday is the fourth generation of

the grade school building here. Pre
ceding him through the school were
his father, his grandmother, Mrs.
Helen Close Wells and his great
grandmother, Mrs. Ha Ewing Close,
the latter having attended the school

No one knows how that venture
some pigeon got into the clock tow
er on the town hall, but it did—and
got itself so wedged in the mechan
ism that the clock stopped last
Thursday night at 8 o’clock. James
Benroth, caretaker located the trou
ble and got it going again. Pig
eons are plentiful around the' clock
tower but how this one gained en
trance into the clock room which
adjoins the council chamber and is
1 thought to be completely sealed up
i is one of the unsolved mysteries.
