Perhaps it’s a preview of Indian
summer—or a hangover from that
perfect weather they usually have
for the Ottawa fair anyway it
conserves scarce coal and from indi
cations this week there’s some im
provement in the coal situation which
makes us happy and leaves begin
ning to turn after last week’s freeze
■which rang down the curtain for the
corn crop—hope it will not be too
bad and primary voting day,
Tuesday, causing barely a ripple of
interest altho it's as important as
any election in a generation with
world affairs as they are and con
gress faced with major decisions in
policy the comparatively few who
went o the polls had a grave
responsibility on their shoulders—
hope they made the best choices pos
sible because we need our first team
material down in Washington now
and here comes Columbus day

discovered us on the 13th—that
would have been a bad start to say
the least and it’s Fire Prevention,
week which is a pointed reminder
that it’s high time to get things
shipshape for winter and the high
school band looking good at Friday
night football games down on Har
mon field—makes us wish we were
back in high school tooting a horn.
Altho it was nearly 50 years since
he left the teaching profession, tri
butes to his memory from many of
his former school pupils and gradu
ates were significant in the passing
of B. F. Biery, publisher of the
Bluffton News. The bond between
teacher and pupil which remained
over a half-century was always with
him a pleasant memory and char
acteristic of the old school of educa
One of his most prized momentos
was the large picture of all the
classes in the Bluffton schools taken
in 1897 when he was superintendent.
The picture has hung for many years
on the wall opposite his desk in the
News office.
He brought with him into the pub
lishing business many of the ideals
of the teaching profession and was
one of the last of the group of men
who were active in Bluffton civic
and business affairs at the turn of
the century when the town experi
enced its first notable growth.
Those were tne days when Bluffton
college opened its doors and sparked
by unexpected income from the oil
boom, business expended and Bluff
ton began to enjoy some of the lux
urious and comforts unknown to the
earlier generation telephones and
electric lights and a city water sys
tem made their appearance and there
was the infant cream separator in
dustry fast outgrowing its swaddling
clothes also not forgotten were the
A&P' s wonderful new Jane Parker Bread
will make you say, “1 never knew bread could
taste so good." We've added extra sugar for
more energy... more delicious flavor. We’ve
added extra milk for finer texture.
.We’ve added extra shortening for crisper
crusts richer, better eating every way.
A&P’s master pastry chefs—the same pastry
experts who bake the famous line of Jane
cultural aspects and the lyceum lec
ture and music course was introduced
and underwritten by this group of
civic minded men who were interested
in bringing the better things of life
and living to the community.
Boys will be boys and what you
heard about an hour after midnight
Monday was recorded music coming
from the amplifying system in the
College tower which some prankish
collegians may have intended for a
lullaby. How-ever, instead of soothing,
it aroused some light sleepers who
apparently couldn’t see the humor in
the affair. All of which reminds us
of an observation made by President
Stevenson of Oberlin last spring in a
similar situation that “We can usual
ly expect these things about the time
the sap starts to run.”
The frost evidently didn’t catch all
of the corn before maturity. Two
ears of fine popcorn grown by Grover
Devier are attracting much attention
in the Bluffton News window. Grover
has a really fine patch of popcorn
this year.
John Garlinger has a sportsman’s
code of his own which a lot of other
hunters might well adopt. John went
out during the squirrel season, just
past, and brought down 15 of them
—just enough to provide meat .for
his table needs, instead of trying for
a record kill and resultant waste of
food. Also John didn’t go out on Sat
urday—he said that day should be
left for the fellows who worked and
couldn’t get out on the other days
of the week. Sounds to us like a
pretty practical and workable pro
gram for any sportsman.
Well, well, it’s all kinds of hitch
hikers one sees on the highway now
adays—and the latest was none other
than Judge Walter Jackson of Lima,
presiding jurist of the third district
court of appeals who thumbed a ride
to Findlay last Friday night when
the brakes of his car became over
heated several miles beyond Bluffton.
The judge was enroute to Findlay
to fill a speaking engagement, and
time was growing short so the judge
who has a persuasive manner, suc
ceeded in getting a ride just in time
to make his speech.
