At the same time, Russell Tripple horn moved into the Fred Mueller addition on Jefferson street a house he purchased on the former Milton Pifer farm in Orange township, east of Orange Center. Remodeled Home The house is being remodeled and replastered, and will be ready for occupancy within the next month. Trippiehorn’s home is the fifth in the Jefferson street area which has been moved in from country districts. Two other home owners in other parts of the town followed the same procedure as one way to beat high costs of building, but it is becoming extremely difficult to find empty residences in the rural areas. In the meantime, the building sit uation represents a paradox. Altho there is a continuing need for new housing Bluffton construction activ ity has petered away to virtually nothing as materials remain hard to get and prices keep on going higher. Cut Costs In the early part of the summer, builders of new homes resorted to procedures that resulted in cutting costs wherever possible in an effort to beat the soaring cost of construc tion. As prices continued high, how ever, the building program slackened, then virtually4 came to a standstill, with no new activity of any kind coming in the last two months. In many cases, increased costs of building partially have been over come by much of the work on the house being done by the owner, with some of his family pitching in as as sistants. At the same time, the type home being built is smaller in size generally, as another means of con serving expenditure. Increased costs which have hiked the price of new homes also are re flected in higher prices for all real estate in Bluffton, and houses al ready built are selling at new high levels. Pre-war prices here for homes ranged from $4,000 to $8,000, but recent sales of real estate in the same class of houses are spiralling upward from the $9,000-mark, more than double the level prevailing prior to 1941. With little prospect for additional building here this summer and fall, the fate of Bluffton’s building pro gram next spring is equally un certain. Should high-priced construc tion keep the cost of building a home at two or three times pre-war prices, fewer new houses will be started than if the costs of erecting a home fall off over the winter. Lack Hospitals Forty per cent of our counties predominantly rural, in 1940 were without a single recognized genera, hospital. In honor of his 34th birthday an niversary, thirty friends and rela tives surprised Aldine Kohli at his home on College avenue. New municipal officers are M. M.

Price of corn, which already has set an all-time high so far this summer, is the determining factor in the cost of pork chops, milk and other dairy products, beef, eggs and poultry.* In fact analysis of the general food picture will show the h?usewife that from eggs and bacon for break fast thruout the meals of the entire day, com more or less sets the pace for the American standard of living. Reflects Record Price Com meal and poultry feed al ready have gone upward this sum mer, to match surging prices of com on the open markets, and meat prices can be expected to follow suit next winter if com yields are abnormally low. Discouraging outlook for this summer’s national com yield, follow ing a date seeding season, for a long time indicated that much higher prices for staple food items could be expected next winter. Present improvement in com prospects have to some extent offset initial fears, but there still is plenty of chance that the crop may be short enough to force prices sharply upward. Sales Stopped Unlike wheat, which must be kept under cover, com can be stored in the open, and most of the crop is held by the farmer. When he takes a pessimistic view of the future, as he has this summer, he halts sales and without full elevators to cushion the shock, the price of com reacts violently. Most noticeably affected when com prices go up are poultrymen, who must sell their flocks or get more for eggs and meat producers who fatten hogs and cattle. As corn prices go next winter, so will go the cost of many food items on the everyday menu, and more than just the farmers’ concern over crop prospects hangs in the balance in consideration of this year’s com yield. In Horseback Wedding Former Bluffton Man Robert Bassitt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Bassitt, former residents of Bluffton Rural Route One, was the bridegroom in a “wedding on horseback” at the Ada saddle club rodeo, Monday afternoon.

A mineral mixture for Ohio hogs can be made from 20 pounds iodized salt, 40 pounds of pulverized lime stone, and 40 pounds of steamed bone meal. It can be fed by mixing eight pounds of the combined miner als with 92 pounds of the protein supplement being used. This mineral mix supplies iodine, calcium, and phosphorus. Some dairymen retain a prejudice against cottonseed meal as a high protein feed and claim it causes constipation, breeding difficulties, and undesirable milk. Feeding trials at experiment stations prove cotton seed meal cannot be justifiably LVs Something New In Fluorescent Lighting THURSDAY, SEPT. 4, 1947 blamed for any of those troubles. Cottonseed meal lacks vitamin A so that essential should be supplied by other feeds in the ration. Ohio poultry men who have good flocks might find a good outlet for spring eggs by contracting with a local hatchery to supply hatching eggs.
