from the “burning-off” practices in
dulged in by some farmers at this
time of the year. There is no basis
for the opinion that weed seeds are
destroyed “giving the land a fresh
start.”
Burning-off practices are danger
ous and destructive and when out
of control cause many forest fires.
Burning of fence rows not only
harms wildlife through the destruc
tin of nesting sites and escape cover,
but causes wire fencing to rust
after coming to contact with the
flames. Many fence posts are de
stroyed through such unwarranted
burning practices.

Builds Pond to Water Pheasants
A concrete watering pend for
pheasants and other wildlife has
been added to Vic Green’s game ref
uge in Orange township. The pond
is apprximately 12 feet in diameter
and a foot in depth. The pond will
be supplied with water from a drill
ed well.
The refuge privately constructed
and maintained by Mr. Green com
prises the wooded section of his 47
acre farm, and is located adjacent
to the Layton Manges place.
The refuge is one of the finest ex
amples of game protection areas in
this vicinity. Brush cover heaped
along the fence rows, stands of al
falfa and small red pines, food bear
ing shrubs and plants, provide ample
protection for pheasants. An acre
of barley planted as a source of
food for wildlife, wooden feeding
station supplied with an abundance
of ear corn and other food when
the snow lies heavy, along with a
slab stone crow blind for eliminating
crows and other predators makes the
refuge an outstanding example of
conservation.

Bluffton High’s wo-game winning
streak was cut silort last Friday
night by a smoothly functioning Van
Wert eleven that nlarched to touch
downs in each of tlie first th ree per
iods to upset the Pirate griciders by
a score of 20 to 0.
On the rebound from an unsuc
cessful season last fall, the Cougars
took full control of th- tilt in its
early stages, and excej’t for a last
quarter drive that finally stailed on
the four-yard line, Blufftun s green
team never serious y threat ened.
Agler, Thomas 8md Tindall kept
Van Wert’s runni tig attcick at a
consistently dangerous level so far
as Bluffton hopes were co
with the former 1ooking especially
brilliant in some of the fanciest
open-field running seen hijre this
year.
Thomas smashed for twe of his
team’s touchdowns, plunging for five
yards in the first quarter and three
yards in the second. In the third
period, Fullback Tindall bulled his
way through the line and ran 20
yards for the most spectacular of
the three touchdowns. Tindall twice
converted on place kicks, but the
attempt for the third extra point
was unsuccessful.
In Bluffton’s last-quarter scoring
bid, there was ample proof that the
Pirates never give up trying, for
they marched some GO yards before
they finally were stopped on Van
Wert’s four.
Ken Bracy, whose powerful run
ning has been the brightest spot in
the Bluffton attack this fall, sparked

Bluffton College Beavers To Play
Another tough assignment is com
ing up this week for Bluffton college
gridders who will be on the road for
the third successive time as they battle
Cedarville in a night game at Xenia
next Saturday.
Unsuccessful in their first two
starts, the Bluffton outfit will be
tangling with an outfit that has a
.500 record so far this fall, and altho
the opposing school is nearer the size
of Bluffton than any other on the
Beaver schedule, Cedarville has a
larger football squad.

Kenyon eleven last Saturday after
noon bested Bluffton’s game but out
manned gridders by a score of 41
to 7 at Gambier stadium.
A brilliant passing attack, with
Quarterback John Mooney doing the
throwing, had Bluffton in the hole
most of the afternoon, and set up
all of the Kenyon scores. To make
the Kenyon passing attack all the
more effective, the downstaters had
a six-foot-six end, who spent most
of the afternoon gathering in
Mooney’s tosses.
Trailing by three touchdowns at
halftime, the Bluffton team came
back with a potent threat of its own
in the last two periods, highlighted
by a third-quarter touchdown. In
addition, the Burckymen showed new
power in their ground attack, for
oue of the brightest features of the
game.

tired Pirates were unable to muster
sufficient strength to punch the ball
over from the five-yard line where
they had three downs and five to go.
It was Bluffton’s second straight
defeat in the Western Buckeye
league, and dropped the defending
champions into the cellar
standings.

Last week while Bluffton was los

was gaining its first win with a 13 to
0 conquest over Canterbury.
A few injuries are continuing to
plague the small Bluffton squad, but
Boach A. C. Burcky is hopeful that
most of his regulars will be ready
to go by the end of th week.
The tilt is being played at Xenia
this year, under much the same sort
of arrangement that Bluffton college
plays at Lima one game each fall.
On the scoring play, the Beavers
had a net gain of 45 yards, repre
sented by a 15-yard pass from Glea

yards for the tally. Gleason kicked
the extra point.
